Best for Families - Expert review of Polo Towers
I always feel smug telling people about Polo Towers – they’re something of a Vegas secret. A non-descript block of small apartments (you get a bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen), they’re technically off the Strip (and charge prices to match) but they’re less than half a block away and boast spectacular views. If you're not bothered about having restaurants, shops or a casino on site, and you just want a centrally-located room, this is a fantastic budget option.
Right behind the stretch of shops on the Strip opposite CityCenter. So although it’s technically off-Strip, there’s an alley leading from the hotel to Las Vegas Blvd – it takes about two minutes to walk.
They’re all small apartments – in fact, this is a time-share place but they rent out apartments to holidaymakers, and you’ll be under no pressure to buy (some friends of mine stayed here and had no idea it was a time-share operation).
Bedrooms are pretty small, but the living rooms are a good size and the kitchens, although small, have everything you need to self-cater. The living rooms have sofa beds, and while they won’t win any prizes for snazzy design (hello net curtains), this is a great place for families. Ask for a refurbished apartment with a Strip view – if you arrive mid-week rather than on a busy weekend, you’ll probably get this at no extra charge. Excellent value!
There aren’t really any apart from the lobby, and that’s a marble affair with an absurd sculpture of flouncing horses.
There’s no bar or restaurant on site, but of course you have your own kitchen.The rooftop pool is pretty small, but I’ll forgive it that, seeing as it’s on the 22nd floor and has jaw-dropping views of the Strip.
Because it’s self-catering, it’s pretty non-descript, and you’re expected to fend for yourself. But staff on reception are friendly enough, and will happily upgrade when asked.
Time-share owners, obviously, and a lot of families thanks to the suite layout (parents in the main room, children on the sofabed).
There is no resort fee to pay.
