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.

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:

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.

Circa

Keep in mind again - pool side (above stadium swim), noisy as heck along the lines of say, the old Hard Rock Vegas, poolside when "Rehab" was in session - and this is no matter how high up you are in floors.

We prefer the back side, much quieter.

Standard rooms at Circa are 439 sq. ft, although they do have some larger deluxe rooms.


Circa end suite, 980 sq. ft.

Closet space somewhat minimal. No bathtub, shower only.

Circa's elevators take you directly to where you want to go, usually nonstop. It's like your own private elevator sent to transport you quickly. Rare that anyone else gets on during the ride.

Venetian

Here are some pics of a regular room at Venetian, which these Venetian rooms at 650 sq. feet not bad at all and, as I mentioned above, one of the best standard rooms in Vegas. Really love the separated step down floor plan from bedroom to living room area.




Below, is the Executive King Suite (formerly known as Renaissance Suites). I have been staying in these suites since Venetian opened. There are two versions: one has an entertainment center, the other a wet sauna and exercise room with a treadmill. We prefer the latter, known as Executive Wellness Suite, especially since Venetian disconnected the steam in all of their steam showers some years ago. Also, right now with the Pandemic still raging public saunas and steams are remaining closed at many of the resorts, such that having your own sauna in a suite really means a lot.

1850 sq. ft. - 1 bedroom, 6 chair round dining table, 1 full bath plus 2 half baths, sauna and exercise room

Resorts World

Weíve stayed in three different suites at Resorts World so far.

Standard rooms at the Hilton are 400 sq. ft., Conrad and Crockfordís both 550 sq. ft.

Hilton Entertainment suite, 1250 sq. ft.


















Crockfordís 1 Bedroom suite, 1150 sq. ft.






















Crockfordís Entertainment suite, 1600 sq. ft.






















Weíve stayed extended periods in both the Hilton and the Crockfordís Entertainment suites. Both are nice, although obviously the Crockfordís one is superior.

And again - for peace and quiet, take the back side facing Circus Circus to avoid the day and night noise from the Ayu and Zouk nightclubs.

These toilets (water closets for those across the pond) are pretty cool.




Walk up to it and it opens automatically (similar to the toilets in some of the casino bunkers/suites at T Mobile stadium). After you're done, it flushes automatically.

However, additionally these toilets keep the seat warm for you at all times, and wash a person's front or back side with a press of a button. I understand that during the pandemic bidets started becoming popular even in the U.S. due to the scarcity of toilet paper.

However, the downside of such an advanced toilet is that it must run always to keep the seat and water hot, which burns energy continuously, and makes a bit of noise at all times. Energy usage aside, you'd want it only in a house where the toilet is far enough away from the bed to not be a nighttime noise issue - in a good sized master bedroom for example.

I've seen toilets like these installed in some office buildings in Beverly Hills, but with the bidet functionality disabled.

We were thinking of installing a few with all functions enabled in our home but that constant energy usage doesn't seem environmentally friendly (somewhat defeats the purpose of eliminating paper waste) and then the bit of noise might be an issue in some of our bedrooms.

I stayed at one of the non-gaming towers of Mandalay Bay during that period when I was not gambling, in a one bedroom suite, with a girlfriend. Very nice, at a very reasonable price. This was a while back and as I recall it was called The Hotel. She definitely liked it. "Good choice!"

But yes, if you want to stay in a nice suite, no gaming pressure, at a reasonable price, I do believe The Hotel / Delano would fit the bill.

How to measure luxury? as in - what is the "most luxurious" resort in Vegas?

Although Resorts World has some NICE suites, including the Crockford's Entertainment Suite we stay in regularly, my wife has been commenting that a lot of the luxury at Resorts World is specious - that the place seems more like a cookie cutter hotel with a lot of gloss over to make it look superior.

I think one way is to consider the cost of the resort versus number of rooms, taking into consideration the date built and the relative value of money from that time.

Resorts Worlds cost 4.6B to build. Cosmopolitan cost 3.9B Encore 2.6B Wynn 2.7B Bellagio 1.6B Venetian 1.5B Palazzo 1.8B

Resorts World has 3506 rooms, completed in 2021, Cosmopolitan 3027 rooms, completed in Dec 2010. Encore has 2034 rooms, completed Dec 2008, Wynn has 2716 rooms completed April 2005.

So, Resorts World per room cost was $1,312,036 per room in 2021, Cosmopolitan $1,288,404. per room in 2010, Encore $1,278,269. per room in 2008, Wynn $994,108. per room in 2005. I believe that if you consider the relative price of construction in say, 2008, that Encore put more money into its structure relative to the number of rooms than Resorts World.

If I had exact square footage sizes of these buildings I could make even better comparisons.

This is a version of the Tuscany with what they call a Juliet balcony, which got me to thinking.

Cosmopolitan Bungalows

At the Cosmopolitan, there are tri-level bungalows. We stayed in one for about two weeks Ė the noise from the right next door Marquis day club (which becomes day and night weekends), is not edifying, but Monday Tuesday Wednesday the place is pretty quiet.

These are one of the few suites left in Vegas with a steam shower. On the top floor, one side has a balcony for relaxing, partying, dining (750 sq. ft.), the other side Ė a jacuzzi.

Mid (second floor), the bedroom, a sitting area, and the bathroom, downstairs, a bar, living room area, another full bath, and another outdoor patio (135 sq. ft.). These bungalows used to have direct access to the Cosmo Boulevard tower pool and to Marquis, but no longer. From the bedroom and upstairs deck, you may look down and see and hear Marquis in action if you wish.

At the Bungalows you are assigned personal 24-hour Butler service. These are the same butlers who service the million dollar penthouses on the Boulevard tower rooftop.
https://www.traveller.com.au/ten-things-i-never-knew-about-las-vegas-until-i-ran-a-highroller-suite-h155mv
These butlers will try to take care of your every need - for example even room service is brought in and set up by them, not the usual staff, and they will even go into town to get whatever you request (number one request I understand is - In n Out fast food ?) - but after a few days the butlers figured out that we weren't into all that and mostly just wanted to be left alone. However, once a day maintenance must enter to check and add chlorine to the jacuzzi, so there was no way to be entirely left alone in these Bungalows.

When we arrived the staff was surprised that there were only two of us. Typically large groups book these bungalows to party. I suppose they end up crashing all over the downstairs on the couches, because there is only one bedroom. We also stayed quite a bit longer than most guests, so we experienced the full range of noisy and quiet days. If looking for a different experience in Vegas - these bungalows are it. More like a Hawaiian townhouse than a Vegas hotel suite.

1695 sq. ft.

The poor inhabitants of the condos next door to Aria and the Cosmo are bombarded by neon glare from what appears to be an Aria billboard. This is a scene straight out of Blade Runner - no rest for the weak and weary in those condos on those floors they must have to keep their windows boarded up day and night.

At Wynn and Encore, we have stayed at both Salon Suites and Parlor Suites.

Salon Suite on the Encore suite (2261 sq. ft.):





but in general, since we stay so long at a time and they are easier on the comps, we prefer the COMParable Parlor Suites.

Here is one on the Wynn side (1280 sq. ft.):













And on the Encore side (1408 sq. ft.):

















Over all, the equivalent Encore suite is going to be larger than at Wynn. The Encore parlor suite has its own little massage / treatment room for private services. Even the Encore salon suite, which is larger, doesnít have that Ė in the Encore salon suite the massage table is at one end of the living room.

Better closet space, more drawers, more usable cabinets and more surface area to place items (such as all your vitamin and supplement bottles) on the Wynn side though. AND Ė as noted above Ė lately the combined noise from the Resorts World nightclubs and Encore Beach Club make a stay on the Encore tower suites side not so peaceful.

RED ROCK

This is another Station Casino, like GVR. When we stay here we have stayed in the one bedroom luxury suite (1545 sq. ft.).

When you are VIP and in these suites, you have an assigned butler who handles room service and other needs. I was wondering if the butler would unfold and hang our clothing? I didn't ask.

















View is decent, albeit across the 215 freeway


Reminiscent of the old Hard Rock Vegas suites, the sound system is decent

These bottles are not complimentary! (well, yes they would be compíed off but they do not come automatically with the suite):



The Red Rock has a bank of VIP elevators that access the VIP room directly

but otherwise, arenít much different from the regular bank of elevators, that is nearby.

Lately we have been staying at Wynn salon suites (1817 sq. ft.). Although they do burn up the comps a little faster than the Parlor suites, they are nice for a change, and weíve been able to stay in them up to two weeks at a time, fully RFB compíed.

The Wynn salon suites, like the Encore parlor suites, have their own massage room for private treatments.

RESORTS WORLD.

We've stayed in this two bedroom 2000 sq. ft. suite a few times. The first time it was notated as Hilton, but has since been rebranded as Crockford's, which means Butler service.







Yes, this suite includes the toilet with the heated seat and built in bidet!

Heh, heh. Yeah. I really enjoy reading this thread but sadly can't see myself ever contributing. Not unless you want to know what it's like to stay in the "dorm" rooms at the back of Circus Circus...

Tip: If you're taller than six feet, crouch down a little when when walking the corridors so you don't hit your head.

Or what it's like to have a room at the Four Queens right above the main downtown music stage...

Tip: Yes, you too can memorize the cover band's entire playlist in three nights or less.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

At Caesars Vegas, the Augustus tower is considered the best, although if you want a quieter off Strip room, the Palace tower, which is most recently remodeled (Oct 2017) of the six, is quite nice too.

With all the additions over the course of a half century, Caesars is like a maze.

This is the Palace Premium suite, 1400 sq. ft. It is equipped with a large built in microwave oven, which is rare among Vegas suites.

When exactly did Caesars get rid of the grills with the cool aqua lighting? I recall seeing this in other than movies, such as in the original James Caan

The Gambler, as I think the cool blue was still there through at least part of the 1990s.



At night especially, these days Caesars looks not at all cool blue and more like a mausoleum.

This is a standard room at NOBU, Caesars Vegas, such as I might take when I just want to collect comps or take advantage of a promo, without actually staying.

Not a bad room actually, and the fitness center is open later than the one at Caesars. You may rent a Peloton bike in the comfort of your own room, too.

No view to speak of, though, not from this room anyway.

Mdawg, thank you for the nice pictures of some of the rooms at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. This time last year, you announced at several different locations that you had purchased a "mansion" was your word, in Las Vegas for mid 7 figures. So why the need for hotel rooms or suites at all?

I've seen homes for sale and/or for rent on Zillow and other sites - that had fewer pictures than you post on a single hotel room.

Looking at your photos I'm reminded that the reason a hotel room is not as comfortable as your own home is because it isn't filled with the things you love.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Another standard room I book when I'm simply cashing in on a promo including free play chips and buying up anything in sight at the hotel shops, is at Red Rock.

This one was so far down the hall that I was glad I didn't have to enter it again.






These rooms have a mountain / hotel pool view.

Seven days for truce violation, importing drama from other forums, and doxing. As a reminder, you two are supposed to have a truce. That makes means not engaging each other at all, except to respond to posts made outside of the Adventures thread. Since Mdawg didn't bring up the condo here, I find this to be either doxing and/or importing drama as well as violating the spirit of the truce.

Wynn is in the process of remodeling all of their Tower Suites rooms and suites.

The entry areas on the remodeled floors now look like this.

At Cosmopolitan, when we are staying in house we like either the Bungalows or the Lanai Suites.

This is a repeat of a prior post, with more detail.

At the Cosmopolitan, there are tri-level bungalows. We stayed in one for about two weeks Ė the noise from the right next door Marquis day club (which becomes day and night weekends), is not edifying, but Monday Tuesday Wednesday the place is pretty quiet.

These are one of the few suites left in Vegas with a steam shower. On the top floor, one side has a balcony for relaxing, partying, dining (750 sq. ft.), the other side Ė a jacuzzi.

Mid (second floor), the bedroom, a sitting area, and the bathroom, downstairs, a bar, living room area, another full bath, and another outdoor patio (135 sq. ft.). These bungalows used to have direct access to the Cosmo Boulevard tower pool and to Marquis, but no longer. From the bedroom and upstairs deck, you may look down and see and hear Marquis in action if you wish.

At the Bungalows you are assigned personal 24-hour Butler service. These are the same butlers who service the million dollar penthouses on the Boulevard tower rooftop.
https://www.traveller.com.au/ten-th...s-vegas-until-i-ran-a-highroller-suite-h155mv
These butlers will try to take care of your every need - for example even room service is brought in and set up by them, not the usual staff, and they will even go into town to get whatever you request (number one request I understand is - In n Out fast food ?)

1695 sq. ft.

























Views from Bungalow:



Steam shower:




For something like this, even if not staying in house, sometimes I will secure it just to hang out in during the day or for entertaining guests. A quick steam room or jacuzzi bath in between gaming sessions is never a bad thing, either.

At my level of play, I can get and have gotten the Bungalows at Cosmopolitan for weeks at a time, whether we are actually staying in the suite, or not!

At Cosmopolitan, the Lanai suites (800 sq. ft.) are like mini Bungalows. They do include an outdoor lanai with jacuzzi. Two level (versus the three levels of the Bungalows).

No steam room though.

Advantage to a Lanai Suite over the Bungalow though is - peace and quiet, because it is adjacent to the Chelsea pool not the noisy Marquis dayclub. Also, has immediate proximity to the Chelsea tower gym, if you're into working out as we are.

GREEN VALLEY RANCH (Henderson).

Two bedroom villa - 2250 square feet.

Private courtyard with pool. Steam room. 2 1/2 bathrooms. Two showers, two jacuzzi tubs. Pool table.











Private courtyard pool.











Microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator - for guest use.



These appliances are supposed to be operated by the butler only.

Dishwasher


Range - I could not get this going. I looked for a circuit breaker or master on/off could not determine why it would not turn on, but - that must be by design.


Barbecue.


So, I suppose no going to Whole Foods for a dry aged ribeye and then sparking it up on your own. I actually tried to light the BBQ but I got as far as the smell of propane and my wife convinced me to leave it alone.

Did you have a pan on the stove?
A lot of induction cooktops won't turn on if they don't detect a pan.

Actually, yes. For some time we have both an electric water boiler and a portable induction cooktop with us, which means of course a pan. Useful for heating up leftovers.

I kept pushing all those buttons on the side - nada. I also checked to make sure the unit was plugged in and looked under the countertops to make sure the unit was plugged in - it was - and for any kind of circuit breaker or switch - couldn't find one.

Oh, and near the back, on the right, pushing that button raises a sort of fan, that rises up out of the countertop, so there is power, at least to that device in the back, but that had a separate power cord, a completely separate device.

Very odd. Maybe they have it switched off to market the property restaurants to people who aren't inclined to call the desk.

I think it is off yes.

But the dishwasher did have power. I asked VIP about why there is no dishwashing detergent, and that is when was told that all of those appliances (dishwasher, range, barbecue) are for butler operation only. So then I asked if I could barbecue a steak on my own, and VIP told me the butler would call me to let me know, but no one ever called. It does make sense that the barbecue at least is just for staff use, because there are no barbecue utensils there.

I suppose the whole setup is for a catering or a custom prepared in house meal event.

If you had to pick one place to stay for a month, say, which place would you choose? What do you like most about it?

Have you ever stayed at Park MGM because of non smoking?
