Our Treasure Island Hotel Las Vegas Review:
The pirate theme of Treasure Island has been forced to walk the plank, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. If you visited this popular Vegas Strip resort several years ago, you’ll be shocked at its new incarnation as TI Las Vegas. Like every other new development in Sin City, the emphasis at TI is on elegance and class. Carnival-like themes are being shunned in favour of sexy sophistication.
Apparently, the Treasure Island Hotel Las Vegas wanted to grow up. In a bid to lure more adults (who drink alcohol by the pool and gamble with real money), the perennially popular resort has ditched the skulls, crossbones and buccaneers. Even the old nightly pirate battle out front has been replaced by scantily clad temptresses (fighting pirates, of course) in the revamped Sirens of TI. It’s all good fun and Treasure Island is as popular as ever.
Its primetime location mid-Strip is its biggest asset, connected to the Mirage on one side by a free tram and the bustling Fashion Show Mall on the other. The Venetian, the Wynn Las Vegas and the Palazzo are just next door for a dose of more upscale Vegas entertainment. With room rates among the lowest on the Strip, Treasure Island Las Vegas is perhaps the best deal around.
Just a couple of years ago, all 2,885 rooms got a much-needed facelift. The standard deluxe rooms are still very average but now have stylish, modern furnishings and high quality mattresses. Upgrade to a suite and a deep soaking tub and more room amenities are provided. Rooms that look out onto the Strip are quite noisy at night as they overlook the Sirens of TI show.
But this is where the accolades end at TI Treasure Island. The pool is surprisingly unimpressive, small and often packed to the gills with kids and other guests. For a resort with a seafaring name, one would expect a little more pizzazz in the pool department.
The claustrophobic casino is equally uninviting. Narrow walkways ensure a bump or two any time you need to move through it and the low ceiling does nothing to invoke a sense of escapism. The O Spa does its job, providing the usual range of massage and beauty treatments, but its windowless environment feels ominously like a doctor’s clinic. TI’s fitness centre is on hand, but like everything else you have to pay per day to use it.
Every night, the Pirate Cove out front puts on four performances of Sirens of TI. The show is free and popular, so get here early for a good view. Treasure Island is also home to the Cirque du Soleil show Mystere, the longest-running Vegas Cirque production.
Of the nine restaurants at TI, only the buffet proves itself to be a worthwhile endeavour. Dining is not a strong suit here, but thankfully in each area where the resort falls short there are more than enough excellent options just minutes away at its neighbours like Mirage and Palazzo. For a comfortable room at great rates, Treasure Island fits the bill.Been here? Rate it:Rating: 4.0/5 (1 vote cast)Treasure Island Hotel Las Vegas, 4.0 out of 5 based on 1 rating
