Want Off The Strip In Luxury Try These For A Change

shutterstock_328705646First time visitors to Las Vegas will likely stay on the Strip. That is where the action is, but some who visit Vegas will visit the Strip, but book a room away from the hustle, noise, and crowds. These folks want good accommodations, with some standard of luxury at a price that’s fair for the 4 or 5 star rating. Here are two suggestions.

The first is about five miles south of Mandalay Bay on the Strip. It is the South Point Hotel & Casino. Locals like this property for its “locals specials” and its buffet. This is truly a one-stop place to stay.

Here you will find not a couple, but 16 movie screens at its Century Theater. How about 64 lanes to keep you in shape and sharpen your bowling skills. There are multiple restaurants and a buffet to satisfy the taste buds of all who partake.

In the rooms are 42-inch LED TVs. And, how about this for something different, an Equestrian Center that is purported to be the best horse facility  in the country. As with most high end hotels there is a spa, live entertainment, casino, and shopping.

The South Point’s website is here.

Another property that is about 3 or 4 miles further south right off Las Vegas Boulevard is the M Hotel & Casino.  This is a smaller hotel with a warmer, more intimate feel than some of the others that can feel kind of cold and sterile. So, what does the M offer guests?

The M offers luxurious rooms of various configurations including suites.  Marble floors add a touch of elegance along with spa bathrooms boasting marble vanities and double sinks.  There are separate tubs and showers. Local and 800 calls are free.

The M has a very comfortable casino that is kind of reminiscent of the old Desert Inn that was known for its quiet luxury. They do run specials to help lure people away from the Strip so check out their website here.
