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
I had an overall great trip to the Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa. The lobby is lovely and the rooms are beautiful. The pillows were plentiful but had not structure or support. The bed was ok. The bath tub was divine! The casino was not terribly smoky, better than most. I had two complaints. We were there in unseasonably warn November weather (75ish the whole time) and only a tiny area of the gorgeous pool was open. I wouldn’t complain, but they charge a significant resort fee. If you’re going to charge me a resort fee....the resort should be available. My other complaint was the concierge tried to point us to very expensive show tickets instead of coaching us on how to get the same tickets at much lower available prices. I’m not sure what that was about. All said, I would return.
This casino is well off the beaten path in Vega$ but well worth the trip. The casino has a great variety of games, very clean and well organized The buffet is GREAT! Good variety and everything I tried was good. Most importantly it is priced right. They dont try and rip you off like most of the strip hotels.
Stayed 2 nights in November. The rooms are large and have wonderful appointments. the view from the 18th floor is inspiring. Casino is like new and fills anyone's expectations. Rooms were about $100.00 and resort fee was $44.00. (high in my book)
nice to get way from the strip and don't forget to take a drive to red rock park, is beautiful, and close.
