STRATOSPHERE TOWER HOTEL..NORTH OF STRIP

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 12, 2005

The Stratosphere Tower is situated at the far north end of the strip....Once inside there is a very large casino,Shopping Arcade bar,restaurant,Night club....you name it...there is everything like all other Hotels on the strip.
The room was quite,large with modern furniture and very clean.
This hotel is structurally as a tower and is the highest point looking over LAS VEGAS.
At 1,149 feet the Stratosphere Tower is the tallest free standing observation tower in the United States and the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.
From the observation decks.lounge,restaurants,meetings,banquet and private dining rooms,guests enjoy panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and the surrounding valley.
One can also go straight to the top floor and especially at night see the whole of LAS VEGAS ...while the top of the tower is slowly rotating!!
Also for the more adventurous type and with a good hearth condition ...paying customers can be strapped in a carriage on the top part of the tower which will be levered out of the tower as to create a space floating feeling for the riders......crazy only to see it...let alone try it!!

Unique Quality: Well i walked all along the whole of the strip once and from the Stratosphere Tower Hotel to the end of the strip took me nearly 4 hours....

Directions: At the North end of the strip

What's that in the sky?

I really do like this place. I recommend this hotel if you are looking for a good deal and a NICE hotel.

Unique Quality: This hotel is good for everyone even kids. This hotel kind of looks like something from space, it is the tallest building in Vegas, you can see it from miles away. They have different shows, a big casino, rides at the top of the tower and you can view the city. Best of all they have a big shopping area.

Directions: Located on the strip.

This is where we laid our heads to rest after a whirlwind day of sightseeing. The hotel is nice and comfortable, although we didn't spend a lot of time there!

The Strat is north of all the other casinos on the Strip, and it's a long walk just to the Sahara, the closest casino. It's best for people with cars, or who don't mind mass transit or shuttles.

What You Get Bottles of in the Bathroom: You get shampoo and conditioner in tower-shaped bottles.

Really, did you go to Vegas to sit in the room or did you go to explore this wildly entertaining city? Right.

I did like our hotel. Not as crowded or loud as some of the others in the middle of the strip...nice and comfy.

Unique Quality: Top of the World: This is one of the most expensive restaurants in Las Vegas. It is at the top of the Stratosphere Tower, so the views are spectacular. Everything comes a la carte, meaning if you order a steak, you pay an extra $5 for the potato, and then more for the vegetables and dessert. It can be very romantic, and if you really want to impress someone, book a reservation for sunset and watch the valley twinkle in the twilight. If you want a good deal, though, check out the lunch menu here, which starts just over $10 and includes a free ride up the tower. The view's nicer at night, because during the day you see all the smog hanging over the valley, but we can't afford to be picky.

At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower is the tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States and the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.

From the observation decks, lounge, restaurant, meeting & banquet space and private dining rooms, guests enjoy panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and the surrounding valley.

The High Roller roller coaster is the world's highest roller coaster! At 909 feet above the ground, the High Roller rockets around the tower pod on 840 feet of track banking sharply at 32-degree angles, traveling approximately 32 miles per hour.

The Big Shot thrill ride catapults 16 riders from the 921-foot high platform up the Tower's mast to a height of 1,081 feet. Traveling at 45 miles per hour, riders experience 4G's as they reach the very top, and feel negative G's on the way down.

There's also the Tower Shops for those who want to shop rather than scream.

Directions: If you can find a better rate for the Stratosphere Hotel anywhere on the Internet, call them and they'll match it.

The main attraction of this hotel is the Stratosphere Tower. With its height of 1.149 feet it is the tallest freestandig observation tower of the United States.

From its observation deck you have a wonderful view on the whole city as well as the surrounding valley.

On top of the observation deck there is a roller coaster which is said to be the tallest of the world. What a thrill on this height!

I was booked into this hotel as part of a bus/coach tour, so I had no option as to the accomodation

I did some research, on this site and others and received conflicting reports. Some semd to hate it and had appalling rooms while others had a great time.

Well, I fall into the latter category. I found very little lacking (other than no safe in the room) and was satisfied with the room and the service I received.

Unique Quality: The real downside to this hotel is the fact that it is located at the far end of the Strip (in fact it's so far down, I hesitate to call it a Strip hotel). It's not really near any of the other hotels and you will need a car to visit those or, as I did, take a public bus.

The price is what make this an attractive proposition. You can get a reasonable stay at lower room rates than can be found elsewhere on the 'main' Strip.

On the other hand, if you are a player, you will find lower minimum table stakes here.

Directions: Far end of the Strip

The first time we took the...

by written on August 26, 2002

The first time we took the 'free trip', we did upgrade for a couple hundred dollars and stayed at the Stratosphere. They gave us a complimentary upgrade to a room with a fridge and microwave and seating area with couch, chair, and coffee table. It was very nice.
I had checked on the prices for our next trip and could have gotten a room for $49/night---including a buffet meal for 2 and ride up to the lookout for 2.

Unique Quality: We had a view of the mountains, not the strip, but it still wasn't bad.

This hotel is at the far end of the strip which makes the prices somewhat friendlier then it would be to stay in the hotels in the center of the strip.
Lines at the check in can be very long, the might offer you room upgrades if there are specials.

The standard rooms are good enough for us, mostly better then hotel rooms in other tourist locations in the US. Weekend prices are higher.

Unique Quality: A very nice hotel with large and clean rooms. Has a swimming pool on the 24th floor. At the stratosphere tower you will have an excellent view over Vegas and also some thrill rides which will take you over the edge.

Directions: 2000 Las Vegas Boulevard South
