Just a hop, skip and a jump from the striking rock formations and solitude of Red Rock Canyon and 10 miles from the chaos of the Las Vegas Strip, the Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa is the perfect getaway for those who like their sin served au naturel. You can test your luck at the slots and your bluff at the poker table in the megalarge casino, get an exquisite massage in treatment suites that appear to float on water and dine at restaurants comparable to the hot downtown names. But should you also crave a real outdoor adventure, you’ll find an authentic (not manmade) back-to-nature experience here that other Vegas hotels can’t match. And then there are the rooms and suites themselves. All are glossy, modern affairs with dark chocolatey walls set against crisp white bedding and marble bathrooms with deep-soak tubs, lighted makeup mirrors and 15-inch flatscreen TVs.
In the Area
Arrange through the resort’s Adventure Spa to saddle up before dawn one morning for a ride through the Red Rock Canyon. You’ll be on your horse in time for the rising sun to set the surrounding cliffs ablaze. Afternoon rides are equally gorgeous, and include a cowboy dinner served fireside at the end. The rapids are mild, but the scenery is beyond wild when you kayak the Colorado River through the Black Canyon. The guided daytrip starts at the base of the Hoover Dam and ends at Willow Beach, a few miles downstream. Along the way you’ll get to stop and soak in natural hot springs. Take the kids along on a half-day trip to a local mine that is rumored to be haunted. You’ll visit three shafts and learn the story behind gold mining here. After the mine you’ll hit the water, for an easy paddle downstream. Red Rock Canyon is the USA’s fifth-most-popular rock climbing destination, and offers routes suitable to all levels. If you’ve never climbed before, this is a great place to try it out; if you’re an expert, there are a number of technical multi-pitch routes. Check with the Adventure Spa for info and guided trips. They even have an indoor climbing gym.
How to Get There
We have stayed at Red Rocks Resort multiple time in the past. It never disappoint us especially with kids in tow. What I love about this resort is having a family friendly amenities such as a movie theater, kid's club, kid's play area and expansive pool area. It has many restaurant on site and a shopping mall and an array of restaurants next door. The resort has also a free parking which is a plus considering that most Vegas hotels has parking fees. I've always liked their rooms that is clean and spacious. I try to stay here whenever we visit Vegas if the price is right.
Came for our 30 year anniversary been going there for years
They were booked for Friday couldn't help us but if we paid 375.00 a night they could get us a room
Jason at the front desk said They wouldn't give us or let us pay for a up grade room or VIP or any up grade for our 30 year anniversary and I did mind paying more money
Jason was rude and unfriendly
Received a email from Redrock the previous day that had a list of up grades clicked on link to up grade our roon for 300.00 a night more plus our original cost of a room
Jason at the front desk He said they don't check the email for days
I said how about a VIP up grade Jason continued to give us a standard room without saying a word and fluffed us off.
It's time to find a new resort to call home when we are in Vegas
First, let me digress! We are long time Sunset Station hotel guests and gamblers. We selected Red Rock to visit as I am an avid Video Poker player and the number and variety of games available at Red Rock called to me. We were taking a trip to Boise, Idaho and decided to stay at Red Rock on our way up and coming back. Our first stay was on Saturday, August 24th. We stopped for the night, gambled and had an excellent dinner at the Steak House. We departed on August 25th with no issues. We returned for a two night stay on Monday, September 2. Since we are normally guests at the Henderson Sunset Station my wife (a President player) decided she wanted to contact the Red Rock Casino Host. She asked at the Hotel Desk for contact information. Our Henderson Casino host had referred us to one at Red Rock. She was told by the front desk that they could not give out any information about our temporary host. They would contact them and if they wanted to they would reach out to us. We never heard a word from them and still have not! We were not allowed to email them or text them. Their contact information was private. This was a bit of a shock since we could contact the Sunset Station Host quite easily. From there it went down hill. We gambled for a couple of hours, made reservations for dinner at the Italian Restaurant "Terra Rossa". We arrived at the restaurant on time and were seated. We placed our orders. We were served our wine and at that time my wife asked if there was any bread? The waiter said "of course" and "it was on its way". Our salad arrived and no bread. After sitting there and having finished the salad - still no bread an employee was passing by - not a waiter but someone that was delivering items to tables. I asked him if we could have some bread? He looked at me and said yes. We then observed him for about 10 minutes delivering bread to other tables but not to ours! By this time we had been seated for 45 minutes. Finished our salad and our wine. No dinner or bread. I stopped another waiter that was passing by (ours had not returned) and ask him if a manager was present. He advised two were and I requested to speak to one. We observed him talking to one and after a few minutes he showed up. I advised him that we were done - we wanted the bill for the salad and wine. I explained the issues and he indicated he was sorry but the restaurant had just opened and procedures were not quite in place yet. He waived the cost of the wine and salad. We left. Dinner was from Panda Express. Not quite what we had in mind. We had reservations for a two night stay but checked out the next morning and moved over to the Sunset Station in Henderson where we had a most enjoyable dinner at their Italian Restaurant and I frittered away a couple thousand dollars in Poker Machines. The bottom line is we will not be back.
One other note, I found it quite disturbing that we could not access the refrigerator in the room without paying a $25 fee and the prices for the snacks in the room were outlandish. Having been in sales world for over 40 years I learned one very important lesson. I will pass it on - 100% OF NOTHING IS NOTHING! If you want to sell snacks price them to sell.
