Wizard approved thread.

Originally envisioned this as a thread about where to stay in a given resort to get the QUIETEST rooms in Vegas, but why not expand it to include general ideas of what resorts have what available and best rooms and suites in general.


Letís start with NOISE. What are the quieter/quietest rooms in Vegas?


Cosmopolitan.

To pretty much avoid the noise, stay in the Chelsea tower, as far west from the Strip as possible Ė but, you wonít have much of a view Ė no direct Bellagio fountain view, no direct down the Strip view.

The noise that drifts up to the rooms comes partly from Cosmoís own club Marquee, and partly from some club located at the base of Parisí Eiffel Towel.

You will hear both if you stay in Cosmoís Boulevard Tower, facing the Bellagio fountains. Youíll get more of the Marquee noise if you stay on the more west side of the tower further from the Strip, and more of the Paris club noise, if you stay on the more east side of the tower, closer to the Strip. And weíve stayed practically on the top floor and the noise is still there.

But, as noisy rooms go, not so very bad. Not quiet, but not excessive.

And, if you want the best view, and here it is from one of their Boulevard wrap around suites, the Boulevard tower is the way to go, noise or no.






Wynn/Encore.

Not long ago, as long as you stayed on the golf course (not Strip) side of either tower, Wynn or Encore, you were safe from noise. All that changed with the advent of the Zouk and Ayu clubs at Resorts World. These bump bass from 11am to 4am (the next day!) Thursday through Monday at least, and make staying in the Encore Tower Suites (on the northern end of the Encore tower), just too noisy. Forgettaboutit. If you didnít like the noise from the Encore Beach Club, youíll hate the noise from the RW clubs, which is much louder with more booming bass.

And being even on the 60th floor or higher makes not much difference if you end up anywhere near the Resorts World clubs, which are located pretty much kitty corner from the north end of the Encore tower.

So, if you want a quiet suite, given that all actual suites are in the Tower Suites, youíre best off with the golf course side of the Wynn. If you are just in a regular room, the south end of the Encore Tower, especially golf course side might work, and any golf course side room in the Wynn tower should be fine. The idea there is to get the best view without being blocked by the other tower.

Here is the Wynn golf course side view (Tower Suites):


and here is the other side view:


Here is the Encore side golf course side view (Tower Suites):

which was fine as far as noise BEFORE the Resorts World Zouk and Ayu clubs opened, not so fine nowadays. Avoid Encore Tower Suites entirely if you care about noise. If you are staying in Tower Suites, stick to Wynn, golf course side or far south Tower, golf course side Encore tower.

Just as an aside, the REGULAR rooms in Wynn are all the same (640 sq. feet) Ė Tower Suites or not. And the regular rooms in Encore are all the same (745 sq. feet) Ė Tower Suites or not. But Tower Suites have their own elevator, and separate valet, and are located at each end of the towers Ė the south end of the Wynn is Tower Suites, and the north end of the Encore is Tower Suites.

Within the regular rooms they have further designations such as Panoramic View which pretty much just means high floor and good view. This, for example, is a view from a Panoramic regular room at Encore:


VIP is located near the elevators for Wynn, and Encore, but is accessible only for RFB guests, so that is not really an assumed benefit for Tower Suites. Tower Suites used to include free continental breakfast, but no longer.

However, if you want to stay in a real suite, these are located only in Tower Suites, and again, if you want to avoid the noise, Wynn Tower Suites golf course side becomes your best option.


Green Valley Ranch

Many of the rooms deal with light freeway noise from the 215 freeway, but the rooms facing the swimming pool deal with noisy kids.

If you donít mind the pool side noise, which isnít bad really except perhaps on Fourth of July weekend with the DJ partying going on, get something with a balcony like this (Luxury Patio Suite):

or if youíd rather be sealed off from the noise, something like a Tuscany Suite with no open windows:

or of course, just a regular room, with sealed windows.


Venetian

We usually stay on the back side, which looks towards the newly constructed MSG Sphere and the Wynn Golf course.

There are two back side view rows that we frequent, one in the 200s (Venetian main 36 floor tower), facing Treasure Island

and the other in the 300s (again, Venetian main 36 floor tower), more facing the MSG Sphere:

We prefer the 300s view, because although both back side views are quiet, in the 200s you overlook the pool which might create a tad of noise due to DJs, and will hear the Venetian bell tower strike every quarter hour, which may get annoying after a while.

Also in the 200s row you might hear that Vegas freight train occasionally - never heard it in the 300s row.


Treasure Island

Didnít have much if any problem with Strip noise no matter which side of the hotel we stayed in.

You will hear the freight train that passes through Vegas occasionally, but not any sort of loud bothersome noise.


Circa

If you value peace and quiet, do not stay above the stadium swim side of the casino that has the ďbetterĒ view.

We prefer the quieter side, opposite the pool, where you will have this view.



Palms

We generally pick the back side, and here too, all you might hear occasionally is the Vegas freight train, from a bit of a distance.



Bellagio

Never really had any problem with noise on either side of the Bellagio rooms, but of course the back side (non Strip facing) are going to be quieter. But with no Strip or Bellagio fountain view.


Resorts World

The temptation is to stay on the Strip view side, and the view is great.

but youíll pay for the view with the same bass bombardment of noise from the Resorts World Zouk and Ayu clubs as experienced in the Encore Tower Suites.

We prefer the back side, with the Circus Circus view.

Much quieter.

Good thread. Useful info.

Suites, suites, and suites. Some of these are relatively modest compared to some of the suites in Vegas, but they are more than large enough for the average stay, and do not burn up much comps relatively speaking.

Letís start with balconies Ė open air accessibility. Of the resorts that we stay at regularly, Cosmopolitan and Green Valley Ranch are the only ones with patios or balconies. At Cosmopolitan, the Wrap Around Suite (1200 sq. feet) is the way to go.





















One downfall at the wrap around suite, and at Cosmo in general, is the dearth of drawers for clothing. The whole hotel doesnít seem to be designed with livability in mind. You end up shoving your clothes into cabinets.

At Cosmo the smaller Terrace Studio Suite also features a balcony and is NICE too (620 sq. ft.). When we started out at Cosmo that is where we used to stay.


At Green Valley Ranch, we like the Luxury Patio Suites (1190 sq. feet).

Next, let's step back from suites entirely, and talk about what the BEST STANDARD ROOM in Vegas is.

In my opinion, Venetian and Wynn/Encore take the cake because of the size and quality of their rooms.

Venetian: 650 sq. ft.

Wynn: 640 sq. ft.

Encore: 745 sq. ft.

Encore regular room:





BUT I want you think about something else. Although by no means a premier resort - the TUSCANY, which is located on East Flamingo down the street from the Platinum, offers standard rooms in the 603 - 624 sq. ft. size, for about nothing compared to some of the Vegas strip resorts. During the period when I'd come to Vegas for years on end and not gamble at all, we stayed at the Tuscany some.

I agree, the Venetian rooms are probably the nicest for me.

So that you get an idea of how they are situated, these are the Luxury Patio Suites (1190 sq. ft.) at Green Valley Ranch.


A balcony-less option for a QUIETER room (little or no pool noise), is the sealed window version of the Tuscany Suite (1500 sq. ft.), at Green Valley Ranch. The Tuscany Suites are available with or without balcony, and we opted for a sealed window one that particular stay because we were there over a holiday weekend which included a noisy DJ at the pool:

Most players want best value, good prices and noise is never a factor, this is LV.

Players don't pay for anything in Vegas, so the "prices" are not a factor for players.

Stay in a suite for weeks at a time and noise becomes a factor. Stay in a room for even just two nights on a noisy weekend and I'd think noise would become a factor too.

From what I understand Wynn (specifically, Encore) has lodged complaints against Resorts World for excessive noise from Ayu and Zouk.

I don't think I ever mentioned, you are the greatest tour guide either. You most certainly are. Once again you give great a new level.

I know people aren't going to like this but I admire what you write and I've learned a lot from you. If you read any of my thread you'd see what my current standing is and how I'm doing in only nine sessions.

You are great!

Let's jump to Treasure Island now.

If you watched the movie Swingers (1996) (and if you haven't, you should!), you might remember the exchange where Jon Favreau laments that casino they wind up in isn't where it's at, and "The new places down on the strip, now, those places are supposed to be it."

Vince Vaughn of course defends the old school place they are in as superior to "all that _____in' Pirates of the Caribbean horse____."

Well, come a quarter century later, and Treasure Island has become the "old school" joint, and is definitely showing its years, especially since Phil Ruffin bought it in 2009, and decided to have T.I. cater to a more modestly heeled crowd, but it still has nostalgia appeal. And, even though the Buccaneer Bay Club high end restaurant is gone from upstairs, Phil's Steak House is still good.

T.I. still has some nice suites, such as this Premier Suite (1300 sq. ft.).

As far as standard rooms, around 400 sq. feet.
