Stayed three nights at the Lake Las Vegas hotel in Henderson, which is on the outskirts of Las Vegas ,approximately 30 miles away from the main strip zone. Priceline rates this property as a Resort, which means there are resort fees to pay once you arrive at the hotel, $10/night in this case. My bid at this property was less than $50 a night thanks to a special coupon I used on priceline. And what an incredible deal it was at the price I paid. Hyatt's web site special showed room rates exceeding $180 for a single night, so I paid a third of that. As I mentioned, the hotel is located in Henderson, fronting Lake Las Vegas, a master planned upscale community, just minutes away from Lake Mead itself. Because it's so far from the main strip area of Las Vegas Blvd (where most of the hotels are), you may not want to stay here if it's your first or even second time in Las Vegas, especially if you're looking for some major gambling action -- it's just too darn far to commute on a daily basis. On average, it took me 30-35 minutes from the time I left my car at the Hyatt to the Strip area, add on another 10-15 minutes to find parking, then walk into a strip hotel, and you'll see a good 45 minutes go by. That makes it too exhausting to commute roundtrip more than once a day. But like I said, you don't come to the Hyatt just to go to the strip each day . There's a lot of recreation at the hotel itself. Two beautiful swimming pools on separate levels were available to guests until 8pm each night (in October). The lower pool is the activity pool, which also has an incredibly fun water slide going down into it. The upper pool is supposedly the "adult" pool. Both pools seldom had anyone in it while I was there. I could go on the water slide practically back and forth without any wait at all -- try doing that a strip a hotel! One can also opt to swim in the lake, as there is an artificial beach below the activity pool. The water looked too dirty for that though. Peddle boats and Kayaks can be rented from the recreation desk for fun on the lake. Golf is available at neighboring golf courses though I do not play so I have no comment on it. In addition, bicycles can be rented and actually ridden safely through the Lake Las Vegas community, thanks to low traffic and spacious roads/sidewalks. What an incredible place to relax! Service was great everywhere I went, from the check-in desk, to the maid service, and even the recreation desk made me feel very welcomed. I haven't had this kind of customer service at strip hotels, where often I'm greeted with a pissed off employee somewhere (Bellagio comes to mind). Food service is exclusively through the in-house cafe. You can either sit indoors or out, both of which have plenty of spacious seating, overlooking the Lake. I enjoyed breakfast there each morning as it was never crowded or noisy, with decent food. Another restaurant is open only for dinner but I did not dine there. A snack bar near the pool is also available. The room itself was nothing special but certainly not dissappointing. A refrigerator nicely tucked into the armoire was a nice touch High speed ethernet jacks are available for a fee. Bathroom was really small, I couldn't even use the sink without having to close the bathroom door as it was two inches away from the sink itself when swung open. Nonetheless, everything was clean, spotless, without a hint of anything feeing worn. Overall, i was quite satisfied with my stay. Like I mentioned, if you know well ahead that the Hyatt is far away from the strip and that's OK with you, then go ahead and stay here if you can get a good rate.
