The last time we were in Las Vegas was 2009. My family and my hubby’s cousin and family stayed in Excalibur Hotel which is situated near the famous MGM Hotel. And after 8 years, here we are again and this time with my dear Auntie.
My husband arranged for this short trip and he booked us in Tuscany Suites and Casino near The Strip. It is reminiscent from those beautiful villas in some Italian village with fine stucco finish. The Tuscany Suites and Casino is exactly that, a beautiful big villa with clusters of other sleeping quarters in a compound.
What I like:
The room we have booked is a Junior Suite. The room was very spacious with two full double beds. It is huge!
The big room has a sofa or seating quarters, and a kitchenette with a decent dining table and chairs.
(I took this photo standing from the edge of the bed and the room is really huge!)
The sofa doubled as a sleeping bed for my husband.
The welcome note on the TV screen. Not all hotels we have booked in the past, even the most new and modern had welcome notes as you enter.
The beds are super comfortable. I slept like a baby!
Our room has a nice view. I can see the winding alley that leads to other sleeping quarters, the main hotel building, and the pool area.
It is a quite hotel.
There are ice vending machines in our floor.
There is an in-house casino.
There is a restaurant, a coffee shop and even a souvenir shop inside the hotel.
There are ample parking spaces for visitors and they are free.
The location is great and there are plenty of souvenir shops nearby. The Strip is also walking distance from the hotel if you feel like walking.
Free wifi, and fast connection too.
It is very near McCarran Airport.
The food in the Tuscany Gardens restaurant is really good!
The bathroom is clean. The bathroom is very spacious, and the toilet is enclosed. The bathroom basin is huge too. I could wash my clothes there. Just kidding but all in all, everything is just spacious!
The lobby area and the beautiful passage between sleeping blocks.
What I don’t like:
The main hotel and different from the Casino entrance although they are connected. You have to park near the main entrance of the hotel so you don’t have to walk much towards the concierge, especially if you have luggages. We didn’t realize there were 2 main entrances so we parked in the entrance which was the Casino entrance. We had to carry our luggages back to the car and drive of to the other parking area nearest to the main hotel’s lobby.
There are several building blocks for sleeping quarters. You have to walk outside to reach the main hotel. It’s not a long walk though and passing by the nice alley behind several sleeping quarters is really not that cumbersome. I just thought it would be nice to just have all the sleeping quarters in one area. But hey, this is just my opinion. The whole compound where the Tuscany Suites and Casino is really a quiet and relaxing one.
And before I forget, it didn’t appeal to me that they don’t have any microwave so we could heat our food.

My recommendation: 4 out of 5
I would have given this beautiful, clean, and homey hotel if it wasn’t for the main hotel’s entrance confusion, I would be happy to give this hotel my five star rating.
I highly recommend this property if you are heading to Las Vegas and you want a quiet place to relax, and still have a good time when you want to. The location is perfect for us. You can walk or take a drive to the Strip if you like because it is just around the corner from this hotel.
