The Strip could use more places like this—handsome but not ostentatious, elegant rooms outfitted with cherrywood furnishings. If you have kids, the place also is a more upscale alternative to Excalibur: family-friendly perks include a kiddie pool and a mini "water park." There's a decent selection of restaurants (including the French institution André's and the trendy Diablo's Cantina), and a slew of casual bars, including The Pub, which boasts a selection of more than
300 beers. There's a handsome pool, and the top floor of the hotel (dubbed "Hotel 32") contains a hotel-within-a-hotel with 50 swanky rooms and suites that overlook the Strip.
