A REPORT BY PRIMO VEGAS — Tuscany Suites came highly recommended to us by family friends so we made reservations even though we were initially sceptical about the resort. My partner was not too keen as the rate was costly at $112 per night but it was a busy weekend in Vegas.
We arrived at McCarren airport in the late evening and were brought in by shuttle, which actually took some time as the streets were busy. When we reached the hotel we liked the place instantly. It has a homely flavor to it that makes you feel at home. I was expecting something more luxurious, thinking of Vegas standards, but it is more like an apartment resort of sorts. The parking is free for those with cars.

Our suite turned out to be a huge room – about 800 square feet, with a king-size bed and king-size bathroom with a separate tub and walk in shower. The room was comfortable and clean but dated in spite of the fact that hotel is less than 10 years old. Was surprised to find tube TVs in the room. There was Wi-Fi but it did not come free, there was a $20 “incidental” fee where such amenities.
The rooms at Tuscany Las Vegas come with convertible couches that can turn into comfortable queen size beds. Our 5 year old totally loved it. The furniture is modern and comfortable. We had a living area with mini fridge and coffee maker. We asked for a microwave and it was provided immediately.
The Tuscany Suites Las Vegas casino was beautiful and cozy. We did not win much but it was great fun while we are there and the crowd and atmosphere was relaxed and happy. There is a well appointed fitness center by the pool which we used a couple of times for free.
The pool at Tuscany was relatively small but they serve drinks around the pool which is a big plus.
The room service closes at 10 PM but there is a diner, Marilyn’s Café, which serves good food round the clock. There are four restaurants on site and the food is good and affordable. There is children-friendly menu which is a great plus again.
There are cabs available round the clock when you want to visit the casinos at night and the Strip is about 10 minutes away walking distance. There is a less expensive and option, a double-decker bus that charges $3 per ride.
Overall we had a great time at Tuscany Suites Las Vegas, not what we expected in terms of luxury, but great value for money on all aspects. Definitely will come back to this place.
