For the classic Vegas experience, visit the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, where both business and leisure travelers are offered gourmet and casual restaurants, first-rate entertainment and world-class gaming action, as well as easy access to the Strip via the Las Vegas Monorail. With a long history in the city, the Westgate Las Vegas originally opened as the International Hotel in 1969 and served as the venue where Elvis Presley broke all Vegas show attendance records. Nostalgic photographs of the musical maverick and a bronze statue of him remain on display.
You can check out Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition - The Show - The Experience. It features a display of hundreds of artifacts from the Presley family's treasured Graceland Archives and Graceland-produced videos. In addition, Elvis-themed live shows run for limited engagements on the very stage where Elvis performed. In the Shimmer Cabaret you can see "Purple Reign: THE Prince Tribute" and the topless revue "Sexxy" starring Jennifer Romas. "Suzanne Sizzles" starring beloved entertainer Suzanne Somers debuts on May 23, 2015 and will be a cool, sexy return to the heyday of the Rat Pack and the Great American Songbook.
After an evening of entertainment, unwind inside the hip Tempo lounge, the Plaza Bar or The International Bar near the lobby. Boasting several restaurants, the Westgate Las Vegas truly has something to suit every taste. An enchanting Zen-inspired Asian garden, where a tranquil rain splashes down into a koi-filled pond, sits outside the entrance to the award-winning Benihana Nearby, Silk Road Noodle Bar, Teru Sushi and TJ's Steakhouse offer guests two more great choices in fine dining, while The Buffet provides a more casual option. Sid's Cafe is a 24-hour eatery in the heart of the casino where you can get appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, main plates and desserts -- as well as standouts like The Elvis Sandwich and the Chicken Lollipops. Grab a quick cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a snack at Fortuna, located near the lobby.
In the casino, crystal chandeliers run the length of the ceiling, while natural light from the hotel's front entrance permeates the floor, which includes an array of games, from baccarat to slot machines. There is a glass-enclosed high-limit table area as well as high-limit slots. The SuperBook, an enormous race and sports book spanning more than 30,000 square feet, includes a VIP section for high rollers, the non-smoking Ultimate Fan Cave and a deli.
Accommodations at the Westgate Las Vegas are elegantly appointed and feature several modern amenities. The Signature rooms offer pillow-top mattresses, flat-screen televisions and wireless internet access. A simple upgrade to the Concierge Level rooms gives guests access to the exclusive executive experience of the Concierge Lounge, located on the casino floor of the hotel's East Tower. Concierge Level guests enjoy complimentary breakfast, snacks, cookies and evening cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Guests may want to indulge in a relaxing body treatment at the The Spa (which will be transformed into the Suzanne Somers Spa later in 2015 and not only feature the entertainer's organic product line, but also the Suzanne Somers Organic Spa Cafe), play a game of tennis or lay out by the hotel's third-floor pool with its stunning views of the Strip. There's also a state-of-the-art cardio room for fitness buffs. Guests may also want to shop in one of the Westgate Las Vegas' many gift stores, carrying everything from souvenirs to apparel and jewelry.
The business-savvy traveler will be pleased to find that -- at nearly 200,000 square feet -- meeting space is plentiful at the Westgate Las Vegas. A skywalk actually links the convention space to the neighboring Las Vegas Convention Center. And there's a fun wedding chapel, Elvis Presley's Graceland Wedding Chapel operated by Elvis Presley Enterprises. With its proximity to the Las Vegas Monorail, it's easy to travel from the Westgate Las Vegas to just about anywhere on the world-famous Strip. But considering the wide variety of entertainment, dining and gaming options offered, you may never want to leave!
