Why You Should Book a Suite
I was hosted by the lovely social media team at Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa. My room was a one-bedroom suite with a butler. Needless to say, we felt so spoiled.
When you are in a suite you get to check in with VIP Services in a separate room off of the main hotel lobby. You then receive your keys, packets, and special access to the VIP elevators. Your room key will give you access to these elevators during your whole stay.
We were absolutely floored when we got to our room. The room was spacious and adorned with anything we could possibly need. There wasn’t a thing that I could think of that was missing. Make sure you check out my YouTube room tour to see for yourself! The large TV had a guide where you could even order your room service off of. One of my favorite things about the room was the tub. I had the most luxurious bath time in the large jetted tub.
The butler was so kind and attentive. One morning my husband had an upset stomach and the butler went to the gift shop to get some pepto for him. His service was just above and beyond.
My Favorite Restaurants
T-Bones Chophouse: I cannot say enough great things about this restaurant. The service was outstanding and quick. We ordered the jumbo shrimp, seafood platter, and crab cakes for appetizers. They were out of this world and hands down the best appetizers we had while in Las Vegas. The steaks were next level. My husband ordered the Angus Ribeye while I ordered an American wagyu striploin. We both agreed that these were the best steaks we had ever had in our lives.
Lucky Penny: This is the 24/7 diner available at the Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa. The cost was a great budget option and the food was fantastic. You can also take bakery items to go.
Osteria Fiorella: I can be pretty picky when it comes to Italian food because of where I grew up and the fact that my husband’s grandmother is full-blooded Italian. My husband ordered a meatball pizza while I ordered cacio e pepe. This was the best cacio e pepe that I’ve had outside of Italy. The appetizers that we ordered (burrata salad and meatballs) were out of this world.

Why You Need a Spa Day at Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa
First off, the staff is amazing. I opted for their Well & Being Signature Journey Massage. My massage therapist was lovely and the scalp massage portion of this massage was heavenly. One of the things that I really appreciated about this spa was that they had size inclusive robes for use. As a plus size woman this was fantastic. After my treatment, I met my husband out at the private spa pool where we were gifted a cabana for the day.
The cabana experience at the spa was heavenly. We ordered food delivered to our cabana, laid out in the sun, and enjoyed the pool. If you do not opt to get the cabana you are utilize the area for up to two hours after your treatment. Don’t forget to tip your cabana attendant and spa therapist!
Cocktails & Nightlife
Las Vegas and the hotel world are still coming back to life so not all of the features were fully operational. This resort however does have a spectacular pop up bar that is currently call Crimson in Bloom. The theming of this bar is magical and it even has outdoor space with a pool. So if you are looking to dance with some pretty cocktails safely, this is your place.
Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa easily had the best and prettiest cocktails in Las Vegas. This includes even the comparison of cocktails that I had on the strip. The bartenders enjoy creating cocktails for you and are so kind.
Why I Would Go Back
Since I’ve been in the hotel industry for almost fourteen years, service is the biggest thing that I judge a hotel on. My experience on the Las Vegas strip was not stellar when it comes to service. Every single person that I came into contact with, even those who didn’t know I had a VIP card, said hello or asked if I needed something. This hotel is the epitome of true hospitality.
This hotel is a great option for families, young travelers, and couples. There are different areas for each kind of traveler to enjoy. Whether you want to enjoy breakfast in bed and a cabana at the spa or hit the buffet with the family and enjoy a night of bowling, this place has it all. This is why I believe the best hotel off the Las Vegas Strip is Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa.
