Hotel of the Year


Must See Must Do Hotel of the YearRed Rock Resort, Las Vegas NevadaRed Rock Resort (a Station Casinos property) 11011 West Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas (702) 797-7777
This is a beautiful building and surrounding property, including three acres devoted to swimming and wading pools. For some reason — perhaps the 72-lane bowling alley or the 16-screen movie theater — this is known as a ‘locals’ place, but the 815-room hotel is quite inviting to visitors. Eleven dining choices range from higher end restaurants to the excellent mid-priced buffet, the lower cost 24-hour cafe and even chain restaurants at the Food Court.The concierge service is exceptional and there is shuttle service to the airport and the Strip. Red Rock Canyon is just down the road for leisurely strolls or more strenuous rock climbing if the fitness center on the property isn’t demanding enough, and the new Downtown Summerlin mall is adjacent to the hotel, just a few steps away.
