Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort
Formerly the Hyatt Regency Lake Las Vegas, Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort is where the rich come to play and to relax. Bought out in 2006, Loews used to be a part of the Hyatt chain, obviously and still contains much of the Hyatt look ñ opulent rooms and gorgeous views of Lake Las Vegas. If there was ever an oasis in the desert, this would have to be it.
Guests can enjoy a small beach at this hotel, with sand being brought in for guests each summer. For those who like to lounge around and enjoy the sun, relaxation is certainly the priority at this hotel’s setting. Located far away from the strip, this is somewhere you might come for business or for a quick weekend trip, rather than for the casino experience. The 320 acre lake is a glittering jewel in the sands of the hot arid Nevada land.
This is not to say that Loews doesnít have a casino, but by Vegas standards, it’s tiny and not really set up for the serious and even the casual gambler. For that, you might want to head to the actual strip.
The accommodations have exceeded the four diamond rating that AAA hands out each year, so there’s no question that the rooms are comfortable and acceptable to even the pickiest traveler. Loews also makes it a point to say that children are welcome, as are pets. This is especially important when you don’t want to leave Fido or Snuggles at home, but you also don’t want to have to wrestle with the hotel management.
There is a 9000 square foot spa ready to pamper you, while also a children’s camp for your kids to enjoy while you relax. And if you want to get even further away from the strip, you can take day trips to the Grand Canyon or the Colorado River.
Rooms start out at around $200, depending on the view of your room and the time of the season.
