    Hello,

    I have switched my Boyd residency from Orleans to Suncoast. I had a good run at the O for 8 years, but my most recent trip (February) pushed me to make the move.

    I am a long-term person, had many years at Treasure Island, Monte Carlo and Rio. Even did PH for a couple years. When I find a nice property, I stick with it until something gives me the push. Thus, my move to Suncoast. I found myself going out there every trip for the past couple years and like the area it's in, plus it's a solid Boyd property.

    So, just wondering if anyone has room advice like best one to ask for, which one to avoid, is the golf view worth the extra $$, high floor, low floor. I have a bit of a knee issue so I'd like a room as nearest to the elevator.

    Thanks!

    We've not really had a home base in Vegas for years, though we do tend to gravitate toward Summerlin more than other areas, so we've had a lot of nights at the JW Marriott and Suncoast.

    Suncoast brings a lot of bang for the buck; hey, we like big rooms, with a dedicated sitting area and while the bathroom is just a standard configuration, it's also large (think the opposite of MSS), which is nice. I'm not sure where the joint is in terms of room renovation, but last time I stayed there (guess that is close to two years now) it was in order. (Yes, two this summer ... I forgot about the last boys' golf trip to Vegas when trying to figure out how long it's been since a dedicated visit.)

    The north view is nice. I don't know that we've ever paid for the "upgrade," however. If you catch the south side higher is better because of all the HVAC and related crap on the casino roof.

    Good food offerings, close(r) to our preferred golf spots, a location we like ... winner.

    Ken,

    I too, love the Summerlin area and am glad I can stick with a Boyd property.

    Thanks for the information!

    The two room suites are really huge. They aren't that much more than the standard rooms I think

    The golf course view is nice, but, if you are high enough on the other side, and if the big condo tower next to Suncoast does not block your view, you have a nice view of downtown and the Strip stuff. Plus Badlands golf course is on that side if you just HAVE to have a golf course view. lol

    We request a "golf view" room whenever we stay at the SunCoast, and at least the 5th floor, or higher. A great view of a couple holes on the course, and also looking north at the Rampart/Marriott.

    Room is larger than the Orleans rooms, with a sitting area (couch and a table & chairs). Comfortable king bed, flat screen TV, mini-fridge, and a coffee-maker.

    Bathroom is large, with a double sink vanity in the main section, separated from the shower & toilet by a sliding door.

    Nice property, if you don't mind being a good distance from the downtown or Strip areas.

    Big Tip, Jimbucc, Buddha:

    Thanks much for the room information. I will be sure to ask for a higher floor room, so I can get a sweeping view of something! I like the fridge in the room.

    Thanks again!

    So, it looks like you can take the WAX from Downtown to Suncoast.

    Where are you unloaded at Suncoast.... right on the property or is there a distance to walk from a nearby street? Knee issue here.

    Thanks!

    It drops you off in the Suncoast parking lot, but it is a few hundred yards to the door. Pickup same spot.

    Easy walk, but I don't know about the knee issue. But it is not blocks away!

    For $2 from downtown, it can't be beat! $1 if you're over 60 with an ID.:thumbsup: 25-30 minutes tops.
