Stratosphere Hotel Las Vegas
We booked a strip view room but when we checked-in there wasn't any available, so they gave us a 'Select' Room instead on the 17th floor with a view of the mountains.
However the bathroom sink was extreamly slow to drain and there was a broken wall light. We reported the sink and and the light to reception and by the time we had got back from a busy day on the strip the sink had been fixed, but the light hadn't so some what successful.
Apart from that the room was nice.
The pool on the 8th floor is great and lots of sunbeds available. There is an additional roof top pool as well but more for pool parties (w/ends) and you need to be 21 to use this pool.
Although the hotel is at the north end of the strip, there is a bus stop directly outside so making it easy to get down to the south end of the strip and it stops at all the major hotels and runs every 15 mins so very convenient ($8 for a 24hr ticket) and the bus service runs through the night so no taxis were needed.
All in all this hotel is a great place to stay and some excellent rates are available and we would stay again, there are also several eateries/restaurants in the hotel and lets not forget the views from the Stratosphere Tower are fab which as a guest of the hotel only costs $5 for a day ticket (a much reduced price).
