If you are go, go, go in Las Vegas, looking for constant stimulation and parties, read no further! However, if you go to enjoy the entertainment, good food, shopping plus want time to relax by the pool, read on.
Las Vegas may well be called the hotel capital of the world. No matter which major street you travel on, you are sure to see hotels and motels or at least billboards advertising them. Each travel destination seems to be rated the best by someone! Where is the best place to stay?
As said in the first paragraph, that choice depends a lot of your intentions. While the casino hotels look glamorous, often featuring cutting-edge architecture and decor, their indoor atmospheres can become tiring, particularly relating to healthy air. Our noses generally pick up some chemical scents and, as they say, what you smell is already in your body systems! Yes, there are a lot of processes used to clean out cigarette smoke and other disagreeable contaminants, but second-hand smoke is usually unavoidable in the casino hotels.
This is one reason why a smaller inn such as the Tuscany Suites Las Legas can be a win-win. Not only are the rooms entered without going through a casino filled with smokers, the pools and some eating places are reached by walking out of doors. Beachfront Coffee, which features a coffee bar and also makes smoothies and light meals, is close to the larger pool. Other restaurants are just inside the doors and well ventilated.
Rooms at the Tuscany are large and beds are comfortable and in excellent condition. When we were there in 2010, our room’s refrigerator and microwave came in handy because we enjoy snacking on fruits and vegetables throughout the day. For those traveling with children, this setup seems to be even more of a plus. We enjoyed relaxing in our room and were able to sleep in some mornings due to the quiet location.
In addition to the regular pool at the Tuscany, there is also a lap pool that was uncrowded during our stay, making it easy not only to swim laps but also to enjoy the sun in peace and quiet. All the children present were at the big pool.
Beachfront Coffee was our choice for a light morning meal or a cookie and coffee in the afternoon. For a full meal, we enjoyed The Cantina for Mexican-style meals and Tuscany Gardens for quality Italian cuisine. The day we left, we tried Marilyn’s Cafe which is a slightly upscale cafe but were somewhat bothered by cigarette smoke coming from the nearby areas.
Located at 255 E. Flamingo, about 1 1/2 long blocks from Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas, the Tuscany Suites & Casino is a good value not only because of price but also because it allows one to rebalance and recuperate in a relaxing, peaceful environment. On our 2010 visit, we moved there from a big-name hotel / casino and were delighted.
