  • Junior Suites – The Junior Suite is very similar to the Deluxe Room but offers a double vanity in the bathroom, a sitting room and a much larger tub.  As with the deluxe rooms, you have a choice between one king sized bed or two queen sized beds.  The addition of the sitting room area creates a larger space and the couch can be pulled out for an extra bed in the room.
  • King Suite –The King Suite is larger than some studio apartments in Las Vegas and boasts over a thousand square feet of room space.  There are two full rooms, one is a living room and the other is the bedroom that has a king sized bed in it.  In the living room there is a full dining and sitting area, a fridge, mini bar and two bathrooms so nobody has to wait to shower if it is already being used.
  • Amenities – All rooms are decorated in the tones of the desert which are neutral and soothing to promote the best sleep possible.  There is internet access as well as a data port connectivity area and same day valet service.  There is also cable television, in room movies and a business center.

Kids Quest

If you brought your children with you to Las Vegas and you want just a little mommy and daddy gambling time, you can drop them off at Kids Quest.  This is a professionally run daycare service that does cost a bit extra.  Your kids can hang out for a couple of hours or for a whole day as meals are provided for an additional charge.  There are a wide variety of activities to keep them entertained including a play area with slides, ladders and fun tunnels to crawl through, non-violent video games, a quiet play area where they can color, a karaoke machine and stage and a special room for the little guests called the Tiny Tot room.  This daycare is professionally staffed and employees are certified in CPR as well as first aid.

Regional Cinemas

There is also a movie theater with thirteen different screens including 3D and IMAX for those who want to get the full effect from their movie experience.  All the new movies are shown here in the comfort of soft seats and stadium seating so the views are great from any seat.  You can set up dinner and a movie along with a hotel stay for one night or include this in your package when you book your stay.
