Hi Folks,

Has anyone stayed at Treasure Island recently? Would you be kind enough to give an updated report? The review at this site is dated August 2009 so more recent experiences would be most welcome.

As many here know, I've stayed at the Wynn for 5 years running, but the discount room offer they've sent us does not cover the time we want to go -- March 15th-19th.

As a back-up, I booked a room at TI through Expedia for that time in case the Wynn doesn't change it's mind and alter the offer to cover our time in Las Vegas.

Any tips, recommendations, or things to avoid or watch out for I would be grateful.

Well, my wife and I stayed there New Years of 2014 (not a couple weeks ago). We were at the RIO and had a run in with multiple problems, High Limit room and host problems so I had a long time friend/host that used to be with CET and was at TI. Haven't stayed or played at TI since the MGM days years ago. We do play baccarat in the HL and we are front money players. The gentlemen that was the director of hosts was my previous host at a CET property. Although I never played at TI under his reign, he did give us a top floor penthouse. Nice digs and no problems with them.

Although it was New Years holiday and very crowded mid strip. Phil's and Seafood Shack were above average to great. Coffee shop on par with most others. The pho-Viet they serve room service and in the coffee shop was very good, my wife is SE Asian so it saves us a trip down Spring Mountain Road for the local fare. Gilley's and Senor Frogs and the other eating place out front were all slammed and noisy so we avoided those. The tram is a great to shoot over to the Mirage, etc. Everybody was cordial, nice and no attitudes which we all know isn't always the case.

The whole place is above most other single standing establishments, meaning non-chain IMHO. Kind of self contained but we are really bigger (larger room-more people) HL room players and she is Asian so lots of her friends frequent Bellagio, Mirage, C.P., etc. The only downside for us was lack of HL players really. We used the small VIP check in there in the corner across from the main desk ropes. Everyone seems pretty in tune with all their tasks and jobs. Best thing is the location and probably a little easier to get around than most other larger properties that are around it. One of the best things was the ease to get in and out of the hotel/property with its close proximity to the strip sidewalk and inside ease to find one's way.

Baby also has a green one. Sum it up: "It's okay just blame me, it's all my fault"! ( No one believes me--so I chose to stop posting)

Contact Djatc here, I think he will beat the going rate by half for any CET property including luxury suits (at an even better rate)

Thanks, but I'm not that high a roller and I've only had one good experience with Caesars properties.

My room offer from the Wynn usually runs $139 per night with 3X points and a couple free buffets.

I booked TI on Expedia for $97 per night.

Used to stay there a lot in the very early 2000s. At that time, I was playing pretty much Baccarat only and T.I. isn't the greatest for that because they don't have enough Bacc. tables running at the same time to abandon ship from one to another if a Bacc. shoe is running too randomly. At my level of play they used to give me their Premier Suites (1300 S/F) and sometimes their Penthouse (1800 S/F), all on RFB (room food bev, comp'ed).

What a lot of people don't realize is that if you get the right room, looking straight down the Strip, because of the way T.I. is angled you end up with the best strip view I have ever experienced, and I have stayed at almost every property on the strip.

Thinking of starting to go back to T.I. again primarily because I understand their blackjack tables have good rules, and also the rooms have been remodeled. I don't expect to be playing as hard as I used to play, but $25. - $100. minimum double deck is my BJ game. Anyone been playing BJ here lately? You read online about how at T.I. they can sometimes sweat the BJ players, is that a fact?
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

Iíd be wary of playing at TI with a card recreational player or not. Itís highly unlikely that their player database and records are sufficiently secure, as it is auto-linked to at least one player database that is 100% not secure.

I pretty much play only at casinos where I have credit lines.

What makes you say that there might be a data breach issue at T.I.? I was in their system when they were a Wynn property, and then a MGM, now that they are independent you think there is some issue?
