Larger drinks are 15.00 better size and deal than the regular size 12.00 drinks at the pool bar... Daydream card = 50% off drinks. ... beer, wine, champagne included in Studio B Buffet... Thanks FourSquare peeps !
Flew in on Jet Blue Airways out of the Long Beach. (1 hr flight). Saturday mid-day.
We are here for Alterna Stylist Unversity training.
We arrived expecting to use the complimentary hourly shuttle service provided by the hotel....
Come to find out they take an hour out for lunch, which is when we landed at 2:30p (there's no 10:30a, 11:30a, 2:30p service) So off to find another ride. taxis 35.00+, town cars 45.00+ (the cheaper shuttles go to the strip, to to the west and downtown... but not to the M) By the time we got thru running around we decided to wait 25 minutes or so for the shuttle after all, to get the experience. While waiting around we watched the other resorts shuttles rollin, fancy, black, stealth, mercedes, oh wait her comes the M, big sized, re-cycled? site-seeing bus, wrapped in advertisements, black graffiti spray on doorway stair steps, dirty windows, burn marks along the light plastic light strips, not very impressive. They did however offer nice cold bottle of water with their logo and a very friendly driver. Off we went for our 10 minute ride.
Resort room - Standard room with Pool view 2 Queens. (no kings availble again what is it with hotels wanting to keep us apart) These rooms are 100' larger than any other hotels in Las Vegas. A spectacular view of the pools, the strip and the mountain range behind that ! WOW. Our front desk guy was so great, he tried to hook us up with an upgrade, but they were full.
Contemporary, state of the art in design and decor. European lighting system. Roomy ! Sweet writing pens (see photos) ! Complimentary gift in room, an emery board from the spa.
We were given a card for complimentary wine tasting upon check-in, which they hold at the Hostile Grape, wine cellar and tasting room which we didn't make it to, ends at 6:00p [info here]
SPECIAL RATES & PACKAGES : California Residents receive 30% off | Commemorative Resort Package, Celebrate our 3rd year with us 150.00 value for 95.00.
ALL THE UBER DETAILS YOU NEED ABOUT THEIR POOLS HERE
NO FREE POOL PARTYS every Saturday night, like FourSquare tip had said ! Pools close by 6:00p !!
Villaggio Del Sole - Main Pool and bar Visit this bar on the outside piazza for hand-crafted cocktails, frozen drinks, beers, Italian ice, and unmatched views of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Daydream Pool Club The bar serves your typical selection of liquor and cocktails, along with some frozen drinks and SnoBar alcohol-infused ice cream. Several pool clubs are starting to carry this ice cream, but DayDream is the first one to do something creative with it: The signature "Ultimate Root Beer Float" with Brandy Alexander ice cream, root beer and root beer vodka. You'll probably "scream" for that.
Attention to detail and little luxury flourishes are a big deal at M Resort, and the pool club is no exception. There's a strip of metal around the whole bar that somehow keeps itself frosty, which in turn keeps your beverages icy-cool - just try and resist the temptation to draw things in the frost. Sure, they could just let your ice melt, but that would be beneath them. They've instead enlisted some kind of super-science to take care of that, and while it's a small touch, shows how much they're willing to pamper you here.
DayDream has a totally different kind of vibe than most of those other pool clubs, but that's exactly what they're going for. If you're over the whole rowdy and crazy party scene but enjoy a little bit of energy poolside, you'll find this club to be one of the best.
We checked out both pools...
lunch at the Daydream pool bar, sliders, chips/salsa/guac and chicken buffalo sandwich ... real good.
No food or drinks aloud from outside the hotel, they check your bags at the pool check-in desk. (they aren't to strict the guy let me have my sunflower seeds as long as I promised to keep them hidden) Best to buy your drinks from Hash House a Go-Go way cheaper than the drinks poolside (24-7 Happy Hour prices)
Witnessed 2 brawls where security had to come clear it up. Got less and less crowded by Tuesday. Pool closes at 6:00p !! What are they thinking. Who jacuzzies in the day, heat of the desert ?? The pool water is saltwater... left a residue all over my body ! YUK! but it was super amazing to swim in. Perfect tempurature... an ahhh moment every time.
Pool Day beds/Cabanas: Bottle Service... (pricing depends on the crowd and busyness) Good music.
Restaurants : the M Resort offers a variety of dining options with some of the world’s leading chefs at the helm. From our state-of-the-art Studio B Buffet, with live action cooking studio, to Anthony's for the finest steaks and seafood, M Resort’s delectable dining options are sure to please everyone, from culinary experts to everyday diners.
Since I came down or caught the flu on this adventure, I only ate out physically at 2 restaurants, the rest were brought to me, in-room by my adoring husband.
Anthonys Gourmet Burger & Brews : Anthony's Gourmet Burgers & Brews presents the finest varieties of burgers offering each with classic toppings and toppings with a twist like stout braised short ribs, spiced pastrami and cranberry-blue moon orange mayonnaise. Delicious buns, homemade fries and the ultimate gelato tasting for two will completes this grown-up burger bar experience. [MENU] We had the Micro Buger and I.P.A. Burger, side of white cheddar bacon fries... second visit, warm spinach and bacon salad.
HASH HOUSE A GO-GO is HERE !!! (see my past post) Had this a few times (in-room) and have to say I wasn't as impressed as I was with my first experience with Hash House! (maybe it was the flu) Had chicken and mashed potatoes, a cobb salad. They seemed rather bland and not as oversized of portions as they are known for.
Vig Deli : Adjacent to the race and sports book, guests can choose from an extensive menu that includes made-to-order hot dogs, barbeque, sandwiches, hand-tossed pizza, chili, soups and specialties such as corned beef, pastrami, brisket, meatballs and hand-made desserts. The menu is designed to let guests “order by the numbers” making Vig Deli a one-stop-shop for great food, great conversation, and hopefully a great game. We had one of their Chicago style hotdogs and fries, pretty good.
Studio B : BUFFET ! They've got it all and it's good ! closes at 9:00p. Sometimes the line for this can be over 1 hour wait. (*Leave me a comment below about this blog and I'll tell you how you can skip the line !)
We tried to sample a little of most everything. Asian, Mexican, Italian, Sushi, Prime Rib all were present. They have a corner wine and beer bar (didn't see any champagne) all inclusive so it's worth the 23.99 per person. They have their own M Cider, it was AMAZING I think I drank 4 glasses ! (so good on my sore throat!) I seriously want to purchase it for the home !
When I got home these posts were on my facebook wall : Apparently this buffet is still earning votes for BEST BUFFET in VEGAS and I would have to agree. Vegas.com http://bit.ly/KZKtYb | Vegas Weekly.com http://www.lasvegasweekly.com/news/2012/jun/28/best-buffet-studio-b-buffet/
They have Penny SLOTS !
Get a free iMagine Players Club card, pick a limited edition free shirt (white w/ their logo on it) or $5.00 in free play when you sign up. We went with the 5,00.
*Tip: The Resort has VIP BIG ROLLER ESCALADES that are complimentary, just have to tip well. We used this service twice over hiring a taxi. It saved us money in the end. Just call up and ask.
Everyone on staff that we encountered were super great. The housekeepers greet you. Our front desk man DAMIEN, was outstanding. The pool servers were gracious and made their rounds diligently. It was a wonderful experience. I would go back and stay there again and would recommend that you try it out.
Mccarrann In'tl Airport, is one of the busiest airport in the US... we were told to leave 2 hours early.
New Terminal just completed. T3. Read about it here.
Gotta love their BLUE CHIPS! *Tip: Did you know that you can ask for more than 1 bag of complementary cookies, chips etc on airplanes? We got 5 bags of chips (for the grandchild and kids)
