    My Trip Report

    Treasure Island is a big exception to the rule that great deals
    are rarely posted on casino hotel websites months in advance.

    In Aug/Sept., TI had special offers for regular rooms, petite suites and
    suites posted for December. Since our trip involved a special occasion,
    I reserved the petite suite. The offer included a 2-for-1 buffet dinner and
    and a coupon booklet (with a name like "Treasured Experiences").

    Valet parking and bell service for luggage were efficient on check-in
    and service was good for whole stay.

    Check-in @ 1:30 p.m. Friday was somewhat chaotic. Our clerk
    seemed distracted, but we got to our room quickly and luggage
    deliver was speedy. Only then did I discover that clerk had not
    handed me the coupon booklet (there was a pre-printed envelope
    with my name and reservation info outside but just paper and
    one coupon inside). That meant a phone call and another
    trip downstairs (sigh; never leave check-in without looking at
    all your paperwork, even if clerk and line behind you are impatient). :rolleyes:

    Not too long a wait for coupon book and it was useful (plus all of the
    coupons can be used until early Sept. 2003!): 2-for-1 spa admission
    (otherwise $20 for one day); 2-for-one drinks at Kahunaville; 10% off
    salon service; 2-for-1 cones at Ben & Jerry's; bottle of wine with dinner
    at Francesco's; 2-for-1 breakfast buffet. [As other posters have noted,
    TI does not have a great buffet, limited choices and quality; we did
    try it once and were glad it was half-price.]

    Petite Suite: Loved this room. Close to elevators. 2 bathrooms is
    a great convenience. One with large shower (and built-in seat) and
    the closet had the safe. The other with a truly deep whirpool tub
    (I liked it better than the narrow job at Venetian) and a couple grab
    bars for getting in and out; small frig in the closet. Living area had
    nice table, couch, chair and the TV in armoire swiveled so that you
    could easily watch from bed or living area. Not a perfect view,
    could kind of see north strip and Strat tower, but 23rd floor was
    nice. Also, I can see why honeymooners go for this suite; there
    were mirrors everywhere! Wall of mirrors next to the bed and
    all around the whirlpool tub [​IMG]

    Spa: used the 2fer so I got two days for the price of one. At
    check-in to the spa/salon area, the clerks are on the phone
    and very busy on weekends. Exercise area well equipped w/
    treadmills, etc. Lots of wedding business in the spa and salon.
    The women's area had plenty of lockers but only 4 showers,
    it was a bit congested. [Plenty of beauty products in shower
    and at the counters of sinks for drying/fixing hair.]

    The women who show you around
    usually offer beverages (herb teas, water, sometimes they
    make strawberry banana smoothies -- yum). Decor kind
    of pink/plum/floral. To reach sauna, steamroom and jacuzzi
    you walk down a hall past massage therapy rooms. [Seems
    like a goofy design; signs ask you to be quiet, but so many
    brides and friends were so excited....] Hydrotherapy rooms
    were off to the side of the jacuzzi with only curtains for
    privacy; this did not seem so great either. Jacuzzi was
    comfy.

    Salon: Booked a service called a "spa" pedicure.
    Vibrating chair, swirling water for feet. Very relaxing.
    Staff very professional and friendly.

    Summary: loved petite suite and salon. Buffet blah.
    Eat at Kahunaville.
