It doesn’t have that over-the-top theme or glitz and glamour of some of the other resorts, but it has a kid-friendly pool area (including a wading pool, a wave pool and lazy river), a wide array of fast food joints in its food court, Lance Burton’s magic show — and a fabulous location for the 12-and-under set. You’ll be right next New York, New York and its stellar roller coaster, and across the street is a movie theater and GameWorks, a stellar video arcade crafted by Steven Spielberg’s folks at Dreamworks.

Fantastic resort, hotel, venue. Would recommend to all. Eataly was our favourite experience - food, wine and cocktails were fabulous. Location on the strip is great. Rooms were beautifully decorated, clean and modern.

I've no desire to stay here again. I found our room very nice and adequate. Loved the steakhouse. Super location on The Strip, especially next to the Park Theater.
I dislike the "Self Checkin" kiosk style. It is impersonal and didn't work. The assistant acted like he didn't want to help me. Tried twice then sent to the VIP main desk for help. Nice guys and gals there. But the Concierge seems very bothered to help us most of the time. The Self Check out went better and I handled fine.
We also like Primrose for lunch.
BUT when did Las Vegas food prices in restaurants get to be so high and expensive? Overpaid for Primrose horrible omlettes and average salmon bagel.
Excellent Manhattan drink at steakhouse and loved our fill packed baked potatoes - real bargain. Delicious filet mignon, too.
The Eatery is where you need to go for coffee since there is no coffeemaker in room. (Hated that!) and Starbucks is packed with customers and you'll wait forever in lines.
Casino is nothing special, absolutely average, noisy.
NO THEME... seems like a business hotel.
Pools - only one open at end of season. Crowded in hot tub but pool was very nice.
PROBLEM: there's only a couple hours of sunshine!!! Freezing in the shadows of the neighboring skyscrapers!!!!
the ONLY place on the property that isn't blasting with loud pop music is in the Conference Halls area! I discovered this at the end when I found the Business FedEx office to print out a boarding pass.
There are many much more fun places to stay!
