Although it’s not one of the most luxurious properties on the Las Vegas Strip, Treasure Island is a comfortable, clean and kid-friendly option that is also budget-friendly, with room prices dropping to nearly $50 per night, depending on the season. Rooms are quiet and spacious, and kids can dine in all of the resort’s restaurants. The resort’s entertainment is also kid-friendly, and although the pool can get a little crazy on weekends, it remains open to children. The resort is across the street from the Venetian, the Mirage and the Wynn, so families can also enjoy the restaurants and attractions of other properties by merely crossing a street.

Rooms at Treasure Island all offer flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges, with floor-to-ceiling windows. Wi-Fi is free, though really, guests are paying for it via the daily resort fee. Views vary by floor height, overlooking the pool, Sirens Cove, or the Las Vegas Strip. The rooms are in towers, making elevator waits difficult at peak times. Request a room on an upper floor, where an express elevator avoids stopping on multiple floors. Connecting rooms are available.
Standard rooms in Treasure Island feature one king or two queen beds in 400 square feet of space. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a view of the mountains or the Las Vegas Strip. Corner rooms are slightly larger and feature panoramic views. Deluxe rooms can connect.

Stayed here a couple of nights on our return to vegas following a road trip, staying at Excalibur on the start of our journey.
Check in very straightforward, although expensive resort fees. Room was large, very clean and spacious. No coffee making facilities, but i'm lead to believe this is normal for Vegas.
Good views onto, and down the strip.
Lots of options for food and drinks in and around the hotel.
Good casino, and range of tables and machines.
Went to see Mystere by Cirque Du Soleil and a fantastic show in a great theatre.
The pool area is also a great space, with lots of beds etc and free towels to use. Food and drink options beside the pool. The pool area was very quiet, but this was Begining of November, so i can only imagine how busy it is in the hight of the summer season.
Overall a great hotel, and after staying at the Excalibur, will be sure to stay here again on our next visit.
I ended up paying more then the actual price that was online per night. Basically I paid double the price. When I asked the front desk they told me it was because I had booked with a third party. Tripadvisor was the worst. Very unhappy
Treasure Island features one large pool and a children's wading pool surrounded by lounge chairs and private cabanas. On weekends, a DJ spins tunes, and during our visit, the mornings were quiet, but became more of a party in the afternoon. That didn't stop families from sitting poolside with kids splashing -- as women in bikinis danced on the stage. Mornings are also less crowded and you'll have a better chance of getting a lounge chair. Some "luxury" lounge chairs are available by reservation at an additional fee, and cabanas sell out quickly, so book in advance. Guests who book cabanas receive a refrigerator, ceiling fan, safe, flat-screen TV, cold water and soft drinks, a fruit plate and cabana host service.
The resort does not allow for any outside food or drink to be brought in, but families can get drinks, snacks and meals from Kahunaville, with bikini-clad waitresses providing delivery.
The pool is open daily, late-February through early November, and average daily hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed during the winter months of December and January.
Island Heat LuWow
The resort's special dinner show is an island luau, Vegas style. The evening entertainment combines Polynesian dances and performances with a mix of Elvis impersonators in a show that is good for all ages. Early shows are offered Thursday through Monday at 6 p.m., with a later option beginning at 8 p.m.; there aren't any performances on Tuesday and Wednesday. Guests can choose from dinner and a show, or just the show. Dinner includes bread, salad and an entrÃ©e, with gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options available.
Mystere by Cirque du Soleil
The resort's secondary permanent show is a Cirque du Soleil production, Mystere. The acrobatic show is kid-friendly, with tickets for children ages 12 and younger offered at 35 percent less than adult prices. The show is performed Saturday through Wednesday nights at 7 and 9:30 p.m.
Oleksandra Spa & Salon
The resort's onsite spa is kid-friendly, welcoming children under the age of 17 with a parent. Special pricing is available for services for kids ages 10 and younger. Princess Parties are also available, and kids can receive up-dos, makeup, mini manicures and pedicures and facials, along with a build-your-own sundae bar, tea sandwiches, cookies and fresh fruit and vegetables.
The Buffett at TI
Open from 7 a.m. for breakfast through 10 p.m. for dinner, the resort's buffet is a casual place to grab a meal or snack. The buffet features a wide variety of cuisines, including American, Italian, Japanese, BBQ and Chinese, plus a salad bar, sushi bar and pizza by the slice.
The Coffee Shop
Although the name may fool you, the Coffee Shop is actually a diner, open 24 hours a day, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The diner overlooks the pool and the casino and is very casual.
Open from 11 a.m. through midnight, Gilley's is a casual restaurant with a Western theme. The restaurant overlooks the Strip, with outdoor patio dining available. The menu consists of BBQ ribs, chicken, steak and chili.
For poolside dining and poolside service, Kahunaville is the resort's casual beach-themed restaurant. Open for breakfast at 7 a.m., the restaurant serves lunch and dinner until 11 p.m., and becomes the host of the Polynesian luau. The menu here consists of Hawaiian-themed dishes, seafood, salads, steak and BBQ.
Overlooking the casino's poker room, this casual joint is open from 11 a.m. to midnight. The menu features Chicago-style hot dogs and Italian subs, as well as soups and desserts.
Phil's Italian Steak House
This dinner-only restaurant provides diners with a traditional steak and seafood menu in a semi-formal environment. It is open from 5 to 10 p.m.
For Asian meals, particularly with a Vietnamese theme, Pho is open from 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. inside the Coffee Shop (yes, inside! It's difficult to find!). The menu consists of noodles, soups, sushi, and special Asian dishes for dinner.
You'll wind up at this pizzeria for at least one meal with the kids. Located near the Cirque du Soleil theatre, the casual restaurant offers pizza by the slice and salads from 11 a.m. to midnight.
For seafood and pasta overlooking the casino, the Seafood Shack is open for dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. The semi-formal environment is one of the property's most expensive restaurants, with land and sea dishes, salads and a kids' menu that features coconut shrimp, grilled salmon, crab legs and fried cod. A burger and grilled chicken is also available for landlubbers.
While the evenings at Senor Frog's may become more party oriented, the casual Mexican restaurant is open from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and from noon to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. It is kid-friendly, too. More Tex-Mex than Mexican, you'll find fajitas, nachos and burgers on the menu.
Planning & Tips
All About the Extras
Daily Resort Fee
Like most Las Vegas resorts, Treasure Island charges a daily resort fee, which reaches more than $30 per day with tax. The resort fee covers Wi-Fi, fitness center access, boarding pass printing in the business center and pool towels.
For $30 extra, guests can express their check-in or extend their check-out time (or both, for a total of $60). Express check-in is at 10 a.m. and extended check-out is anywhere between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The Art of Smart Timing
Las Vegas is a year-round vacation destination, but the summers can be quite hot. Visiting during the spring or fall will provide the best rates and weather.
The resort is less than 30 minutes from McCarran International Airport. A taxi will cost about $30, and the Las Vegas Airport Shuttle, which stops at numerous resorts, is available for less than $10 per person. Return service is provided from the hotel, as well.
Families just visiting the Las Vegas Strip and downtown area can easily maneuver by foot, the Las Vegas double decker city bus, or an inexpensive taxi. If planning to leave the city to take in sights like Red Rock Canyon and Hoover Dam, the hotel has a Dollar Rent-A-Car desk that is open daily.
For Mom and Dad
The resort's spa offers couples massages and treatments, as well as poolside cabana treatments. Of course, this is Vegas, and the resort operates a large casino, as well.
