The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas: Quality & Quieter Venue for Your Vegas Stay
Spent two nights at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas to welcome in the 2010 New Year. This hotel is about 16 miles from Vegas, in Henderson in a little village of Lake Las Vegas. There is one casino for the whole village made up of several hotels, some residences, shops and hotels. It is a quieter feel than on the "strip", which I liked for this trip. It is a top-notch property, like most all Ritz-Carlton's are.
The rooms were nicely appointed and beds made with lovely linens. We had a room looking out onto a central garden and on to the lake. My only complaint is that there are no light switches inside of the bathroom or separate toilet room. The only light switch is on the wall outside of the bathroom, which I found inconvenient and a bit of a safety issue, but probably expensive to change.
Service was excellent and I would love to stay at this resort again.
The little village of Lake Las Vegas is right outside the door of the Ritz-Carlton and a fun place to walk around. Some of the little shops were not open, but it was still nice none-the-less. There is even an outdoor ice skating rink on the edge of the lake right behind the Ritz-Carlton. They played music and it was used a lot during the time we were there- very nice activity for the kids that were staying there. There are boat rides available on the lake and little paddle boats also. The casino is very close to the Ritz-Carlton, so easy to walk to and from.
The hotel provided a complimentary New Year's Eve Party in the Firenze Lounge, which was well attended. They had a good DJ and a free champagne toast at midnight. Other drinks were pricey, but it was a fun and safe party to welcome in the New Year. There was also a great fireworks display that went on for quite a while. Very impressive.
Though we didn't use the spa, I have heard that this is one of the nicest of the Ritz-Carlton's spas from a couple of people.
The breakfast buffet was excellent and omelettes were made to perfection.
The best part for us is that dogs below a certain weight are very welcome here. We were told it was a $75 charge for our pet, but we realized after we life that they never charged us for it. Maybe our little doggie got to stay free for good behavior. There is a parking fee at this hotel that we think was $20/day.
The grounds and garden area are beautifully groomed and appealing. A golf course in very nearby.
