Loews Lake Las Vegas, Henderson, Nevada – Hotel Review
After an action-packed Friday in Las Vegas, I was looking forward to a nearby getaway where I could leave behind the neon and the noise, but still have quick access to the city, if I needed a little stimulation.
Loews Lake Las Vegas resort was the right antidote to the lights and frenzy of the city – and it was only a 20-minute drive away. I drove up the long, palm-tree lined drive into the parking lot of this delightful non-gaming property and was greeted at the entrance by a friendly doorman.
Once I was in the lobby, a bellman offered to help with my bags, but since I was traveling light, there was no need. The lobby’s Moroccan-themed décor, including Middle Eastern paintings, thick carpets and artifacts, synched beautifully with the desert visible through the facing three-story floor-to ceiling windows.
The front desk clerk was pleasant as she checked me in, gave me details about the hotel, and directed me to my room.
The bright Grand King Suite that I was fortunate enough to have been granted had a balcony and windows in both rooms that gave lovely views of the lake, desert , and mountains beyond. The living room was furnished with a comfortable sofa and chairs, a bar with a sink and a small refrigerator, a Bose sound system and a flat-screen TV, and also featured a dining area with a large table and several chairs. Moroccan details, such as a carved wooden screen and table, and colorful tiled mirror frames, added a warm element to the décor, as did large lamps, which provided soft area lighting.
Opposite the king-sized bed in the bedroom was another flat-screen TV. Just off the bedroom, a walk-in closet held a safe, and a dressing area led to a marble bathroom that had a separate tub and shower and two sinks. There was also a guest bathroom off the foyer.
ROAD WARRIOR SUPPORT
A work desk in the bedroom offered sufficient work space and plenty of easily-accessible outlets for charging my laptop and cell phone. Wi-Fi, at no additional charge, was easily accessed from my suite.
Loews Lake Las Vegas also has a small business center with two computers. The hotel’s 20,580-square-foot ballroom, with banquet capacity for 1,500 guests, is complemented by numerous meeting rooms and indoor event spaces, as well as more than 55,000 square feet of outdoor event space.
