Hyatt or Ritz at Lake Las Vegas?

Considering a trip to the area ourside of Vegas -Interested in a resort that we can take our daughter - where we can relax and have fun but yet the adults can make a day trip to the Strip while she atttends one of the hotel camp programs. Would like to hear pros and cons of each. Heard the accommodations at the Hyatt are not ver y nice? Which has the nicest pool areas, etc.

time of year is important but there is no competition- the ritz has nicer everything and a great spa/fitness center where you two can spend all day. i do recall a special kids camp as well and lots of kids loving their time in the pool.

I was would love to get more specifics on the Ritz at Lake Las Vegas. Most Ritz Carlton's can be a bit more formal and stuffy - being in a resort would like a sophisticated casual atmosphere - How old is the Hyatt? The pictures of it on the web site make it look nice? We like upscale places . The Ritz's web site didn't meantion anything about a kids camp or program?

well, if by "stuffy" you mean elegant, then you will not like it. but the trade off is an adequate motel style room for the same price. it's your money...spend it as you wish!

I'm not sure what the last comment meant, but here's a comparison: the two properties are across a manmade lake from one another, the rooms at the RC are quite a bit nicer than the Hyatt's, and the service is better at the RC. The RC is upscale, but remember it's Las Vegas--stuffy in NYC and stuffy in LV mean very different things. LV breeds a casual attitude everywhere except a few very nice restaurants (and the Four Seasons is still pretty un-casual compared with all the other Stripo hotels).
If you like upscale, I can't imagine you'll find the RC uncomfortable. This is a resort Ritz, not a city/business class Ritz. People are there to relax, whether they're mixing business with pleasure or just for vacation.
The Hyatt tries to stay afloat by booking meetings and conventions and such. I can't see how it can be especially profitable over the long haul because it's too far from the Strip and not nice enough by itself to draw a lot of people away from the Strip. It has a tiny casino, good golf, a manmade beach with small roped off swimming area in the lake and average/small pool.
I've been to both on two occasions.
If the prices are anywhere close, the RC would be my choice.
