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
This place is far from being the locals favorite place to play. First, the video poker machines, especially the deuces and triple bonus single line five coin max bet are so bad, trying to hit either four deuces or aces, is like trying to hit a royal flush, which is also like trying to hit the state lottery in California. Second, when they send you a mailer on free tickets to an upcoming event, you go to the players club, only to be turned away. I have seen this happen to other people as well, because they tell you, “it is only for Chairman cardholders, sorry, theres nothing we can do about that. It is marketing that sends out the mailers.” As I stated in the past, these local and strip hotel/casino properties treat locals like dirt.
Stayed there in November and had great food and and a wonderful night on the slots. Tremendous eateries also. The pro chef has a restaurant there and it was great. Rooms were top notch and very comfortable. Highly recommended.
Here's another of my Good & Bad. First the bad: You have to be very careful not to bump into the mini bar, otherwise you get charged (not good if you have kids) No USB ports, you really don't get wifi unless you want to get charged after so many minutes, to get to the restaurants, you have to go through the casino, where there's a lot of smokers. Not good if you're a non-smoker breathing that in. Now the good: Very plush beds and pillows, pretty sound proof rooms so you don't have to hear your neighbors, beautiful window views of the mountains, close to the Summerlin Mall (walking distance) Feast buffet has a variety of food, Grand Cafe for breakfast was really good. It's great to be away from the strip if you like to stay in a hotel away from the noise and traffic. We were very fortunate to have had our daughter & son-in-law recommend this hotel, as they stay here each time when visiting relatives. Love to stay here again.
If staying for a convention, be prepared to do a lot of walking to where restaurants are located. It's a pretty long walk and if convention is big, you are going to wait a long time to get served and receive meals. When I was there this summer, the food outlets were not prepared for 1,000 people during lunch hours.
I returned to the Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa after a 5-year absence, being a bit hesitant since my previous visits were just amazing. Well... they certainly didn't disappoint! From the moment I made the reservation directly with the hotel to the very moment I left, everything was perfect... and I consider myself to be a finicky traveler!
Every corner of the resort is impeccably clean and well maintained. The rooms seem to be brand spanking new even after 10+ years. The Spa... Oh! The Spa!!! This was one of the main reasons I booked since my best friend and I really needed a retreat. It is even better than when the property was brand new and the service is super affable without being intrusive.
Housekeeping, Front Desk, Casino & Restaurant staff are all on the same page and treat you like you are their only customer!
Being away from The Strip is the most wonderful treat about this Resort as it gives you the feeling of being in an Oasis. If you can... go hiking in the Red Rocks National Park just a few minutes drive from the hotel. It is spectacular!
I can't wait to go back!!!
