Polo Towers by Diamond Resorts


Tucked back from the strip slightly, the Polo Towers Suites offers both a private respite and also access to the heart of the action. It doesn't have a casino or some of the typical "megaresort" amenities, but there are two expansive pools, spa services, and the comforts of home. Polo Towers by Diamond Resorts is positioned slightly back but is between Planet Hollywood and MGM Grand hotel. This central location means you can take in the views from your room's balcony. Plus, nothing beats the views from the hotel's rooftop pool on the 22nd floor, equipped with roomy lounge chairs, a hot tub, and barbecue grills. Since the hotel is typically quieter and less crowded than nearby casino hotels, you can easily nab a chair. There are even free cabinas if you prefer shade over the hot Vegas sun. Along with the rooftop pool, there is an additional pool with family water park.

Studio rooms are the most affordable options, but their pull-down Murphy beds aren't anything to call home about. For a little bit more, one-bedroom condos, which include a coffee maker, mini fridge, microwave, wet bar, serving ware and utensils. The reasonably priced accommodations are especially affordable mid-week. They also have a bedroom and pull-out sofa, so you can accommodate a group.

There isn't an on-site restaurant, but you can take a short stroll to nearby dining and entertainment or whip up a meal in your suite's kitchen. Shop groceries, alcohol, snacks and Starbucks coffee at the ground floor's convenience store. Since the Polo Towers is technically a timeshare property, don't be surprised if you have to attend a short presentation by Diamond Resorts. The resort will try to sell a timeshare, which you can take them up on or respond with a firm "no."

If you're staying for an extended trip, Polo Towers Diamond Resorts even has complimentary washers and dryers on several floors. The entrance is off of a seperate alley, giving the hotel its location set back from the strip. Self parking and valet parking is available to guests in a lot or underground garage.
