* All rooms are suites at this property. Only difference is some have french doors between the living area & bedroom, and others don't. Ask for a room facing the Wynn - better view. All rooms have programmable safes in the closet.

* PAG is $10FB coupon or 500 points.

* There is not an executive lounge. Gold/Plats get free breakfast in the restaurant - either buffet breakfast or main item off the menu. No coupons. Server will just ask for your room number.

* Gold/Plats get free hi-speed internet ($12.95 option), which also includes 3 devices. Free wifi in the public areas for all guests, whether elite or not.

* Walking distance to monorail or to the strip where one can catch the Deuce bus that runs along the strip. If you have a car, $10.00 per day self parking fee.

* Staff some of the friendliest/helpful in the entire Marriott chain!

* Detailed trip report in this post; it's a year or so old but still pretty accurate:

Las Vegas Marriott [Master Thread]

Hello all,

What's the general consensus of the Las vegas Marriott? I'm thinking of using the 35k reward for a weekend. Do they even have a concierge level? I was under the impression that the entire hotel is suite based, with no upgrade options.

I've also read elsewhere on flyertalk that folks can be upgraded, even on award travel if you are gold or platinum; I would assume that hotels wouldn't want to upgrade folks that are getting rooms for free to begin with. Anyone care to share experiences on that?

Stayed there about 3 years ago. As far as I know all rooms are the same. And no concierge lounge. Location is about two blocks off the strip -- not a great location. It was adjacent to an older boarded-up hotel/caosino. That may have changed by now. On the questions of upgrades on reward certificates, my experience is that you still get complimnentary upgrades.

Just finished a 23 week assigment in LAS and spent about 1/2 those weeks in the LV Marriott Suites. It doesn't have any upgrades, however the staff is great, the location is not on the strip its, 4/10 mile to the strip. The rooms are nice.. I think its worth it. I like the fact that there are not any gambling devices in the hotel and theat the lobby is smoke free. If you are going for gambling, its a five minute walk away to the strip or the LV Hilton..

Thanks guys. I've called the Marriott folks and requested my award cert.

Now I wonder if they can kick me off Plat. if I become disorderly at the hotel. This is Vegas, afterall...

I always stay at the Marriott Suites in Las Vegas. It's a nice, quiet place away from all the mayhem of the strip. I hate having to cross three football fields of casino just to get a cup of coffee in the morning. And the rooms are not quite all alike. Some have French doors separating the living room and some do not. As for upgrades on a reward stay, I just returned from a stay at the Renaissance Tokyo using an award. We were put on the Renaissance Floor, presumably because I am a Platimun Marquis. Another couple was checking in also using an award and they were put on a lower floor. This seems to be the policy whenever I've stayed using an award.

Several years ago, Marriott announced plans to build either a J.W. Marriott or Marriott Marquis (can't remember which) on the MGM Grand property. That obviously never came to fruition, anybody know why?

I had a conversation with the agent about that very topic when I booked my award travel for the Marriott. Basically the deal fell thru between MGM and Marriott and now they have no plans of having any kind of partnerships with any other casinos.

Las Vegas Marriott Suites

Hello:

I am using reward certs for my upcoming stay at the Las Vegas Marriott Suites. If anyone has stayed there, please provide your feedback regarding the quality of the property (i.e.: Rooms, pool area, restaurant, etc.). Also, is it located within walking distance of the better casinos? I usually stay at The Bellagio or Venetian, however, want to begin using Marriott reward certificates for travel.

Thank you.

Near the convention center, Good solid hotel. Rooms are typical suites. restaurant is typical marriott. Walking distance to the strip but probably a bit of a haul to the Bellagio end. Cabs are frequent and well priced. During conventions they charge for parking which is so non vegas but as a Plat member they always have reversed it. If the HArd Rock gave points I'd stay there but they don't so I always stay at theSuites

Las Vegas Marriott Suites is three blocks east off the Strip. Its approximately a ten minutes walk (in 100 F heat) to the nearest Casino on the Strip (Stardust), the Venetian is around one mile away.

Just to double-check, you mean you redeemed Marriott reward points for the Marriott Suites correct?

I was hoping to use the W14 free weekend nights there but alas the Marritt Suites is category 5 so it will be the RI-Hughes Center for us.

If you are looking for a Las Vegas experience- you will not get it at a Marriott. If there's anyway you can stay at a hotel- casino and use your free time elsewhere, I would suggest that. The Marriott's here are not close to the Strip action- 3 blocks is a long way in this heat. If you like the Beligio, stay there for the experience.

Hi Harry:

I never stayed at Harrah's. I would enjoy being the guest of Harrah's
