Over the last decade, the hotel industry in Las Vegas, Nevada has seen a dramatic shift away from the typical high rise luxury hotel and casino model to a more inclusive, more dramatic hotel resort model that includes more amenities such as pools, spas, retail space, entertainment options, and dining options on premises as well as large scale reenactments of such famous scenes as the New York skyline, the Eiffel Tower, and strange tropical islands; a perfect example of this trend towards a resort styled hotel in the Grandview at Las Vegas. When taken into account with the neighboring casino and entertainment arena, this hotel can be billed as a vacation resort and boasts such amenities as a lagoon like pool area complete with a full scale, erupting volcano and reenacted pirate battles, luxurious and spacious suites, large gaming and gambling casino, eighteen screen movie theater, bowling alleys, and dozens of upscale dining options.
Like other newer hotels in the Las Vegas area the Grandview at Las Vegas likes to advertise itself as an all inclusive resort. Gone are the days of considering a hotel just a place to sleep in between casino visits and shows. These days many visitors do not leave the premises of the hotel they are staying in. This phenomenon has occurred because so many hotels offer everything a tourist would want under one roof. The Grandview is no different.
The first and most obvious attraction that this hotel offers is a dramatic recreation of a lagoon or island like resort. The exterior of the building is dominated by a pool area that offers guests four thousand square feet of water, a double-sided waterfall, poolside dining and bar options, poolside spa and hot tub facilities, poolside fitness amenities, and a dramatic, full-sized, and fully functioning volcano. This volcano erupts several times a day to the delight of all visitors and guests. A poolside fitness center includes treadmills, stationary bikes, yoga and stretch areas, and free weights and a state of the art music system that allows each guest the ability to listen to their own music poolside.
The suites at this hotel have also been designed to be more than simply a place to sleep at night. Most suites come complete with a full service kitchen with full sized appliances including a refrigerator, stove, oven, and microwave. The bathrooms are spacious with Jacuzzi style tubs and marbled floors. Rooms also include state of art entertainment features which includes high speed internet, on demand television, and big screen televisions.
Next store to the hotel is one of the area’s largest casino and entertainment arenas. This venue offers one of the largest casino floors complete with card games, slot machines, gaming tables, and sport booking services. However, the complex is also home to an eighteen screen state of the art movie theater, bowling alley, a high end gaming arcade complete with all of the latest gaming technology, a performing arts stage, live concert venue, and a forty thousand seat equestrian center where world class horse racing and other competitions can be seen. There are also half a dozen dining options ranging from sandwiches and soups to luxurious four star restaurants.
When all of these features are taken into account, it is no wonder that the Grandview at Las Vegas is considered an all inclusive resort.
