This luxe hotel chain is a new entrant to the Vegas scene – a glittering tower at the eco-friendly City Center, right in the middle of the Strip. And it’s happy to welcome families: Your kids will get a welcome gift and can borrow Sony Playstation 3 consoles and games, or movies from their DVD library. And if you and your spouse need a night out on the town, they can arrange certified babysitting services, too.

This hotel is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the strip. Yes, it's fun and exciting to walk through the busy hotels that have lots going on, but it was so nice to come back to a peaceful place after lots of walking in crowds where there's a serene and relaxed vibe. We were also pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food! Room service was REALLY delicious, as was the sushi at the on-site restaurant, Zen Kitchen. Afternoon tea was also GREAT, best scones I ever tasted! Staff all around was superb; everyone was very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were always cleaned, and we never even saw the maid service. Very close to Crystals (high end) mall, as well as Eataly Italian food emporium. Highly recommend this hotel if you're visiting Vegas but don't necessarily enjoy having a casino downstairs, making your way through crowds in your lobby, and the loud drunken antics that you see a lot in Vegas. As a bonus, we met an extremely famous musician in the elevator who was playing one of the larger hotels on the strip; apparently he was a guest at the hotel, and wanted to "get away" as well! Overall, highly recommend this hotel for adults. If you're on spring break and want to act like you're 21 again, I'd recommend staying elsewhere.

We have stayed here before and really enjoyed it. However this time I decided to get a city view room versus strip view for a change of pace. Found the quality of the city view room was lacking. Fridge didn't work. Too much noise from pool. Carpet was dirty.
