Visit Las Vegas: Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino

For our family's first trip to Las Vegas, we wanted to stay somewhere that was family-friendly and that had a focus on great customer service.  After doing a lot of research, we opted for the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino (formerly a part of Red Lion Hotel's Leo Collection).

Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino
The former LVH- Las Vegas Hotel and Casino was acquired in 2014 by Westgate Resorts.  The current Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, which has over 2900 rooms,  has been undergoing some major renovations.  

We were hosted in a very nice, recently renovated Signature 2 Double Beds Room, which included new Cameo carpet, a flat-screen TV, a Keurig Coffee Maker, a refrigerator, and a large work desk.

Although we did have a broken/missing towel bar in our room, and there didn't seem to be enough lighting even with the curtains wide open (the room was very dark at night even with the lamps on) and outlets (having outlets at or near the huge desk would've come in very handy), the room was still spacious and sufficient for our needs.

The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable, and we had a great view of the Las Vegas Country Club golf course.

Stunning view!
The pool, spa, fitness center, and tennis courts are currently being renovated, but there are so many other things to do on property.

Of course there is the Casino, including the world's largest Race & Sports Book: The Superbook, but there are also shows, shops, and a variety of eateries (you can read my review of Sid's Cafe here, and of Benihana here).

The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is also known as Elvis Presley's former home (the "King"  performed for 837 consecutive sold out shows at the resort), and throughout the hotel you'll find several exhibits paying homage to the King (a new Elvis Exhibition at the resort will open up next month!).

And if you wish to go to the famous Las Vegas Strip, just step outside to catch the Las Vegas Monorail. The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is a stop along the Las Vegas Monorail route, which makes it so convenient to get to many destinations along the Strip, as well as to the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is adjacent to the resort.

There is also a business center and wedding chapel on site, complimentary lemonade in the lobby, and plenty of free parking.

Service was also great - everyone we interacted with was polite and helpful.

Because Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino offers Vacation Ownership, as does the other Westgate resorts, a few times employees did try and talk to us about timeshare ownership.  Since we were not interested, we'd politely decline, and never felt any pressure from anyone to get more information. 

I'd definitely stay at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino again.

The clean & comfortable room, numerous dining options, convenience of monorail, numerous amenities, and great customer service made Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino an ideal place to stay for our family.

It hasn't even been a year into the transformation yet, and the Westgate Las Vegas has many more new things planned - a new steakhouse, remodeled convention space, and more! I can't wait to see all the new renovations that are yet to come!

Mahalo Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino for a great stay!
