My Room at Red Rock Resort, Las Vegas

Red Rock Resort Lobby
On my most recent trip to Las Vegas, I stayed at Red Rock Resort for two nights as a guest of the hotel, which meant a complimentary room. Of course, I had to pay the resort fee, and I forget exactly how much that was, probably in the range of $25 or so.

I like staying at Red Rock. It's a bit of a drive on the I-15, or going west on Charleston, but it's nice when you get there. It's not really crowded and noisy, it's classy, and it's fairly new. The Summerlin shopping areas are pretty close, which means there are ample restaurants around whenever the tummy starts grumbling.

The first time I stayed there, I hung around the casino for two days, trying nearly all the restaurants at the resort. This time, I was a little more relaxed as I didn't feel obligated to eat every meal at a restaurant that was new to me.

My room was nicely appointed, not as spacious as the one at Bally's, where I spent my first and second nights, but it was very, very comfortable, as you can tell by the picture above.

I think I wrote at length about the bathroom in a previous post a few months back. It's the one with the TV set over the bathtub and the sink faucet that made me want to go to the bathroom. In the picture, the shower is off to the left (couldn't get it all in one picture, even with the panoramic feature).

Looking outside my picture window was Red Rock Canyon. You can see it in the middle of the picture. I've been to the Visitor's Center there, but didn't do the drive into the canyon. Didn't feel like doing it this time either. And those houses in the foreground on the west side of the I-15 weren't there a couple of years ago when I first hit the slots and tables at Red Rock.

If they offer the free room deal again, I'll be there in a jiffy.
