Alexis Park - no welcome here
We visited the Alexis Park all the way from the UK and although we couldn't grumble about the price -our deal of $70 a night was good value - we were very disappointed with our welcome. The receptionist was totally uninterested in us when we arrived and gave us no information whatsoever about the hotel. and nor was there any in the room. The suite was OK if rather dark although the kitchen was dirty and on the middle one of our three nights there the trash wasn't emptied. Not a bad deal but if you're going in November, as we did, and are prepared to wait till you get there we reckon you can get a better deal on the spot.
After numerous stay, still love Alexis Park!
An excellent choice for non-gaming stay; as frequent visitors to Vegas, Alexis Park has remained, after numerous stays, a favorite place to stay. They have a bar/grill and a nicer restaurant, and a large lobby with numerous chairs and couches, as well as a small gift shop.
It has REAL suites, with even the smallest, the Monarch, being like a small apartment. Pricing for the Monarch is usually under $100!
The property is laid out like an apartment complex, with great grounds to stroll through, numerous pools and spas; the fitness center here is free for hotel guests (unlike so many other LV hotels). They have a great fitness center, too - machines, spa, showers ...with more towels available than you can count - his and her wet areas are, of course, separate -
Can't believe the negative reviews - the entire resort was recently sold (stayed last Dec. 2003), and all the rooms have been remodeled.
All changes from here on should be positive, due to capital influx.
This is a non-gaming resort located on Harmon west of Paradise, just across from The Hard Rock, where you can catch a shuttle to the strip, if needed.
One word of warning - although units are large, there is no dining table in the suite - kitchen/ bar area has fridge and sink, but no microwave -also, there are no stairs if you get an upstairs suite.
Not Worth The Money
As a 30 year resident I have stayed at many of the local hotels. With that said I can assure you that you do not want to stay at Alexis Park. On the weekend that I stayed there they were hosting a company pool party until 1am. Loud music could be heard inside my room making it very hard to sleep. There was a walkway just outside my window and the conversations of those passing by could be heard inside. The windows dont have adequate sound insulation. I sent a letter to Alexis Park but never received a response.
We were PLEASANTLY surprised!!!
We booked our flight/hotel package online...the first time we had ever done so....just before we walked out the door to catch our flight I found this site and printed off the reviews to read on the plane.My wife and My hearts sank the further we read on about the Alexis Park...we decided that our holiday wouldn't be ruined as we'd only be sleeping there anyway....ya...ya...ya.We found the front desk clerk very friendly upon checking in so that was a plus.We were totally shocked when we got to our room and found this gorgeous suite(Monarch Suite) complete with a separate bedroom and TV with a huge jacuzzi tub,separate shower for two and enough towels for a family of 6....not sure why you'd want to take your family to Vegas however....this town is NOT a place for children. We had room service the next morning and the attendant could not have been more pleasant and polite. We found the pool areas clean and never a fight to find a place to lounge in the sun....oh....they may want to fix their lounge chairs...few would adjust to sit up......and perhaps March weather has not yet warmed the pool water....was a bit cold to swim in even tho the outside temp was in the high 80's. Other than that we had a wonderful stay there.....we enjoyed the fact that you could get away from the gaming areas by being at a hotel without gaming....nice and quiet. We will come again......and will certainly be recommending it to our friends.
I was suprised to see all the negitive reviews. We had a bedroom and a spacious living room. Room service was good. And the rooms were wonderfully decorated and very clean. The lobby was spacious and nice, my friends and I hung there till 2am, because it was so compy and nice to relax.
A lot better then expected.
We arrived @ 9 am Saturday morning and did not think they would let us check in until check in time. But no they were very pleasent and let us check in @ 9am to my surprise. The outside is pretty worn down and I was kinda nervous but the inside was really nice. The bath tub was huge and the water pressure was perfect. Everything was great. For only 49.00 and not having to deal with a casino and all the smoke and noise it was perfect. We arrived @ 9am Nov.23 and left 24th Sunday @ 2:00. I would say it is not for everyone becuz it is far from the normal out of contro Vegas Hotel...
Las Vegas...Land of Lost Wages
"Here Comes the Bride and the Groom too!"
April 10, 2006 a day which will be remembered as an historical event here on VT. Berni and Carl Shand renewed their wedding vows in the "Shalimar Wedding Chapel" Las Vegas, Neveda. Many of Berni and Carl's family, friends and regulars on VT watched the ceremony via the chapel's web cam. Those in attendance were: Best Man: Rex Vaughan (along with his wife, Sacra), Matron of Honor: keida84 (Kat) with her husband, Paul and "sis" Kris, CatherineCG and her husband, Jay, VT member Kymbanm and her friend, Missy. A wonderful reception was held at the "Center Stage" restaurant in the Plaza Hotel downtown Las Vegas, Nevada.
In September of 2005 I visited the Las Vegas area, namely the "Strip" in honor of my favorite Aunt and Uncle's 60th wedding anniversary. Those two are the most active pair of 82 year olds you'd ever want to meet. We stayed at the "Treasure Island Hotel", which impressed me a great deal with their facilities for people with diabillities and handicaps, as well as one of the nicest Spas on the strip. We had Room Service the first night as my husband is a fan of good Room Service, and a fabulous meal at The "Steak House" on Sunday night in honor of Mary and Don's wedding anniversary.
"The Night our Sorority Invaded Las Vegas"
I have a love-hate relationship with Las Vegas. I love to go in the summer when it is hot, but the crowds make walking unbearable, even at night when the temp is 104 degrees. I have stayed at many hotels on the strip...Ceasar's Palace, The Luxor (my husband's favorite), Treasure Island, The Excalibur, The Aladdin, & Bally's are just a few.
Speaking of Bally's, there was a week end in the not so distant past that my sorority took a trip to Las Vegas for our dear sista "Flo". She was turning 21. Legal! So we rented a suite at Bally's, on the concierge floor, went to the spa, rented a cabana at the pool and for all intensive purpose was virtual eye candy for everyone who gawked at us!
LtoR: the woman and man I cannot remember their names (oops) Shugah, Wanda, Edna, Shirl, Concha
back row: Babs, Toots, Trixie, Flo
My "sistas" are all chorally gifted and everytime we would see a bride, we would break into a spontaneous acapella song, "Goin' To The Chapel".
In the New York, New York Hotel, We even serenaded a bride as she was actually going to the chapel, she was so stunned she thought her husband to be set it all up for her. When she found out we just happened by she invited the lot of us to her reception! How's that for singing for your supper?
We closed the place down with a conga line all through New York New York to the tune of, "We Are Family, I Got All My Sisters With Me!"
The Alexis Park Resort is a good accomodation off the strip as is the Crowne Plaza Hotel (both non-gaming facilities).
The shows are terrific, I love Cirque du Soleil's "Mystere" at Treasure Island that is my favorite but "O" at the Bellagio is a stupendous undertaking and not to be missed!
Gone is the "old" Vegas with it's cheap breakfast, free shrimp cocktails, Rat Pack shows and cheap buffets. Too bad, that when Vegas was great.
Despite my many visits I have yet to find my voice about this town. I have a lot of pictures to scan yet, mybe that's it. Somehow I can't find the words for this place.
Check back maybe I will get it together soon. (LOL)
Alexis Park Resort in Las Vegas
One of my friend will go to Las Vegas from August 10th-16th, she needs to stay in Alexis Park Resort ( 375 E Harmon Ave) to meet friends. Anyone know where is the best place to book this hotel to get the best deal?
Thanks in advance
Re: Alexis Park Resort in Las Vegas
Your friend may have left it too late for that particular hotel. I usually use Expedia but I have checked that site and a couple of others and it seems that the problem is the Sunday when they are fully booked. You could try contacting them direct (website www.alexispark.com) although even their own website says they are full.
The alternative is to stay somewhere close by, The Hard Rock is probably the closest big hotel and there will be others around that area.
Maybe their friends can help.
