On my recent momcation to Las Vegas, I stayed at the Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa. I’ll just jump right into this trip. I arrived on a Thursday evening at the Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa. It is a nice hotel. Check-in was quick and easy. There was no option to check-in via a mobile device, but there was also not a wait in the lobby to check-in.
My room was on the 7th floor and I had a view of the strip, but it was very foggy each morning, so the view was not the best. The room was nice, with a beautiful Calcutta marble bathroom, deep soaking tub with a 15-inch TV above it, separate shower, double sinks, and a lighted makeup mirror. After a nice, hot soak in the tub, there is a super plush terry robe to slip into. My one complaint is the wifi sucked. I could not log into Facebook, check email or log onto my blog from my tablet with the wifi. There was the option to pay for wifi, but not see the point especially since I wasn’t streaming videos.
This trip was more about relaxation than shopping. The last momcation included luxury shopping. One thing, you can find ALL the amazing luxury brands in Las Vegas. If you are looking to shop at Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Harry Winston, Gucci, etc. this is definitely the city to get in some good shopping.
The price point for this hotel is very wallet friendly. The lobby bar has a beautiful chandelier. The picture does not do it justice. It does not show the true size how enormous it really is. I chose this hotel for its spa amenities I saw online. Yoga classes, salon, and spa services. There are a number of yoga classes throughout the day. Classes include In-Trinity Board, Wall Yoga, Mat Pilates, Vinyasa Flow, and more. Vinyasa Flow will have you flowing from one pose to next with coordination with your breathing.
The salon was nice, very elegant, but a bit smaller than what I expected. But still a nice salon overall. Staff was friendly and service was great. I did have to set an appointment to get my nails done. Here’s a look at my nails. I will say that the lady that did my nails, did a great job. She was about giving the best service and not at all trying to rush the job. She took pride in her work and it showed.
I also bought a few gifts from the gift shop. It’s small but nice. There are a few shops in the hotel and an outlet mall only a couple blocks away.
Gambling this time, lady luck was not on my side. I was manifesting she would be. My last time in Vegas, I played the slots and lady luck was on my side. There are slot machines, bingo, poker tables, video poker machines, race booking, sports booking, and more. I’m not a blackjack, poker player, so I stick mainly to the slot machines. The casino floor was not crowded the many times I went. As smoking is allowed in the casino, I didn’t see anyone smoking.
Food. Before arriving I knew one restaurant I had to eat was the Yard House. It’s one of my go-to restaurants in Waikiki, so I couldn’t pass up the chance to eat there. I was happy to see some new items on the menu. Lumpia, being one. I ate it a few times during my 3-night stay. There are 10 restaurants in the hotel and also room service. I ate at three of them Yard House, Grand Cafe, and Noodle House. Stay tuned, as I’ll be writing posts on the restaurants in their own blog posts.
Would I stay at this hotel again? Probably so. But there are so many options available for hotels that who knows.
