How is Treasure Island?

Hi!
we are thinking to go to Vegas on Jan 9-12,2005. We got room rates for $89.00 per nite in Treasure Island.
I would like to know how is the hotel and how is the service. I think it is in the center of the strip, but please correct me if i am wrong.
I also wanted to know how is the temprature in vegas in Jan? Can i wear skirts that are knee length without freezing? i am from Michigan, so we really want to go somewhere and party, when there is loads of snow out here!
Thanks in advance.

We gave stayed at Treasure Island several times, the last time being in May. The location is great, the rooms are spacious and your $89.00 rate is terrific. Have fun!

I've stayed there also and had a really nice room. For $89 a night, go and don't think twice about looking around.

Haven't stayed there but it is centrally located. I must warn you . . the evening show outside gets extremely crowded!! I understand their old show was much better.
Be sure to see the fountains at Bellagio - and walk inside, too - it's fabulous!

I've stayed at TI once and upgraded to a suite. The room was beautiful, the location is two hotels off the corner of Flamingo and the Strip. Very central. Service is good as well. The weather in Jan. is usually between 50-60 degrees and chilly at night, however being from Michigan it should feel like the tropics! You will need a coat and slacks for the evening. Have fun, I love Las Vegas.

Unless you like to go to the downtown casinos, TI is really towards the end of the strip. I consider Bally's, Bellagio, Cesars and the Flamingo to be in a more centralized location.

We stayed at TI last trip and the room was pretty nice but I probably wouldn't stay there again. There is only one regular restaurant open late and it wasn't very good, lost a ton of money on the blackjack table and didn't think the dealers were very nice for a newbie player. I like Bally's better for the location. You wouldn't think TI is much further but the properties are huge and it adds to your walking. Also, we had one good check-in person at the front desk and another one that had pretty rude/unfriendly. If you have a AAA card, they give you 10% off each night also.

I'm with len on the location. Seems to me that the "center has been moving South. I now consider Bellagio/Paris to be the center. TI is the Northern edge of center across from the Venetian. Decent property but not really special. Want more action? Try NYNY or MGM or Paris. Price critical? Look at Ballys, Flamingo, Monte Carlo.

I'd say too the center has been moving more south, but when the new Wynn's opens, that's a move back to the north!

TI is OK. Avoid the extra cheesy pirate show. The Las Vegas mall is right across the street and a station for the new monorail is nearby. Be prepared for possible cold weather in January. I've been there when the weather went from warm to freezing in a matter of minutes.

I got this same special rate a few months ago. It is not Bellagio, but we found everything very nice and clean. We were happy with the hotel and the price.

For 89.00 you are staying in a good place. I have stayed there twice. You are connected to the Mirage which is great. I remember one year I did go in February and their pool was open and heated. I don't know if they still keep the pool open or not?? The weather is cold in January- probably in the 50s during the day! But, that beats MI! Knee length skirts would be okay as long as you are not walking outside for a prolonged time. Oh, and the pirate show is crowded and cheesy as mentioned...but check it out anyway. You are in VEGAS, the KING of CHEESE and all the free attractions are part of the Vegas lifestyle.

January is a huge convention month for Las Vegas and the prices can be extraordinarily high. You got a great price, it's a perfectly nice hotel, and no matter where you stay, you will want to visit other hotels anyway. It does get cool at night; unless you never get cold, bring slacks and definitely bring a coat. You will be across the street from the Venetian. Don't miss it.

Troyolla,

Can I ask where you got the $89 rate? We're looking at Vegas for Jan. 20-23 and rates are HIGH!

Patrick, it will be really interesting to see how that Steve Wynn casino/hotel does. We had a perfect view of it from our room back in Feb and it looks impressive. I think I'll still enjoy being a little more centered to more of the action.

On another note (without starting a new posting) isn't the Tropicana getting ripped down and re-built? Has that begun?

I stayed at TI two nights ago (Sunday night) in a superior (really just a regular) room for total of $149 w/taxes. Absolutely nothing sepcial about it at all. It was not big. There was ample room to walk around the beds, a very small table and one chair a TV armoire, and that was it. It looked very tired and the bathroom was all marked up and worn. The one regular restaurant had a line of 30 people wating to get seated every time we went by (even at 6 a.m on Monday monring when we tried to get breakfast on the way out to the airport).

Reminds me of a funny story...

One night a few years ago I paid way too much for a suite at TI because of a very special occasion. I was hoping beyond hope for a view of something besides I-15 from the back of the hotel.

When we checked in I begged the clerk (politely)..."Please tell me my room doesn't overlook the freeway."

He replied emphatically, "Oh, no sir! You are looking at the mountains!"

I guess I should have looked up a little higher!

Stayed there last week (5th time within the last 3 yrs). Room was OK - but as mentioned seemed worn. At check in they asked if we wanted to upgrade to a strip view. We never had to ask for a strip view but had one 2-3 times before. We declined, but unfortunately had a room above the pirate show. I know you shouldn't be in your room before midnight being in Vegas - but the "sirens" were very annoying and the fireworks are launched from the roof below. We almost ended up on the ceiling the first time they went off!

The Terrace Cafe food is passable, didn't try the new deli; the new buffet "Dishes" will open in November. Stopped for a $10 watered-down drink at the new bar Tangerine. The Breeze Bar in the casino across from Terrace Cafe is nice and relaxing.

I still think the location is good because you have the tram to Mirage, the overstreet walkway to Venetian; if you want, the Stardust & Riveria are walkable for a change.

Just got back from staying at TI last weekend. It was nice -- but, in my opinion, just nice. But, DEFINITELY worth $89/nite. It really is at the northern part of the stip in terms of where the "main" casinos are. The service was fine. We were with our 22 year old son and 2 of his friends and they LOVED it.
