I stayed here, on my own, for one night only last month on leisure/business trip. If I’m paying the bill, I tend to use Best Westerns a lot (typically good general standard and value for money) and this is one of the best.
It’s a large hotel, well suited to hosting conferences, in the suburb of Henderson about 6 miles from McCarran International and the south end of the Strip. If you don’t want or need to be in the center of all the Vegas action, it’s a very good option. I didn’t have time to explore the immediate area, but there are restaurants within walking distance and I enjoyed a great evening meal at the Kopper Keg, just across the car park.
My room was excellent. Large, clean, plenty of cupboard space, a huge king size bed, great bathroom with plenty of toiletries and the usual safe and multi-channel TV. My first thought was that I should have booked more than one night at this close-to-five-star-experience. The only issue was, in common with so many hotels, the WiFi. It was free, which is a big plus, of course, but I couldn’t get it to work properly even when I took my ipad down to the lobby area. A robust WiFi connection is becoming an increasingly important requirement for both business and leisure travellers so the sooner the large hotel chains sort this out, the happier their customers will be.
I didn’t use any of the hotel’s leisure or conference facilities, but the small swimming pool and Jacuzzi just to the rear of the hotel looked very nice and seemed to be open 24/7. A hot buffet breakfast is served in the lobby area and it’s typical Best Western fare - cereals, pastries, fruit, hot bacon, eggs and sausages and tea and coffee. More than adequate, but nothing spectacular.
The cost of a room including breakfast, at around $100 per night, is unbelievable value for this standard of accommodation. I can highly recommend this hotel and I will have no hesitation at all in returning. Particularly if they fix that WiFi! less
