    A friend just called and has made reservation as TI for Jan 10 - 14, and asked if we could join them. OK twist my arm.

    I have never stayed at TI, what rooms are good and is there anything in particular that we should ask for.
    We are low rollers, wife penny slots and me $25 BJ, so don't expect any comps to speak of.

    Thanks in advance for any info and/or suggestions.

    We have stayed there 5 times, but never in a regular room. The Petite, Tower, and Executive Suites are nice big rooms with two full bathrooms. My wife loves the two bathrooms, so it's pretty much our "go to" place.

    A south facing room has a great view down the strip, probably the best in Vegas. The east facing view of Palazzo, Wynn, and the mountains is pretty good. The north facing view of the mall roof, Trump, and the Echelon wasteland is definitely nothing to write home about.

    We are low rollers as well, so won't be much help on gambling.

    They have no dining that really stands out, but adjacent properties have pretty much anything you could want.

    All in all, it's a decent "middle of the road" hotel. Nothing spectacular, nothing to scare you away, so join them and have a great time.

    Thanks for the info. It was exactly the room info I was looking for.

    One thing to add. Their buffet is not much different than your local Golden Corral, Ryan's, or whatever is popular in your neck of the woods. They often give a 2 for 1 coupon when you check in. With the coupon it will be 25-30 bucks for two of you. That's all it's worth and not really a big deal at that, so don't go out of your way to use that "Free" buffet. Recently, one of my friends was planning his second trip, the first being at Flamingo. He chose TI because he knew we liked it so well. I quizzed him when he returned and his only gripe was being ripped off at the buffet. I said that I thought it was ok with that coupon, to which he replied "What coupon?". Turns out, he paid about $60 for he and his wife to eat there...ouch:thumbsdown:. I apologized for not warning him :)

    TI used to be home base when i started going to vegas. More good luck than anything.

    Rooms are clean but nothing special. Stayed in the penthouse suite on each of my visits and enjoyed it but as far as luxury, there are much better places.

    The pit sweats the bet pretty hard on the floor as well if you are betting decent sized bets.

    Have fun

    Haven't stayed, but had the buffet - it was one of the worst I've had. Not much of a selection.

    Rooms are decent, beds are comfortable. All rooms I have stayed in had a small fridge. Restaurants are nothing to rave about. Rooms facing the south strip have a great view.
    High limit room has very good rules for $25 BJ, DD, S17, etc., and all tables in the casino are 3:2 BJ starting at $10 min.

    From what I know, if you play $25 BJ for 4 hours a day, you should be able to get some comps at the end of your trip. Just check with host on duty the night before you check out, never hurt to ask.

    Do get that south facing view if possible, I've stayed in many Vegas properties and Mandalay Bay on the south and TI on the north side of the strip have the best strip view imo.

    Their buffet sucked as others pointed out, if you are a buffet lover you can either do Mirage or Caesars or Wynn, all three trumps TI's better by a mile. If budget is a concern I'd suggest the Mirage buffet, pretty good bang for your buck.

    Also as others mentioned, restaurants at TI is nothing to write home about, although personally wife and I really enjoyed Gilley's BBQ items with a strip view. Give it a try if you want.

    Other than that, you have a ton of five star choices around you in different hotels plus fashion show mall and forum shops.

    Hope this info helps.

    I have stayed at TI twice and I have had no problems with either stay, rooms are good and the beds are comfy and I tended to eat at the Coffee shop café when I did eat there. Food was good and a reasonable price as well, it is on my shortlist for my Feb stay.

    I actually like TI, I have stayed there quite a few times. It's nothing special but I find it comfy and always seems to find good deals there.

    I'm here at the TI as we speak. Nice enough accomodations for the money but the clientele depresses me more than I had expected. It's kinda like walking around a Wal-Mart in some ways.

    TI

    The posts I an reading so far seem to reasonably describe TI. I have stayed there around 6 or 7 times over the past 15 years and have always appreciated the cost/quality ratio as far as the rooms go. Food is not far away, as you can cut across the bridge to the Fashion Show Mall to get a Strip Burger or Grimaldi's pizza, or across the street to the Wynn for an upscale steak or buffet, or move in the other direction to Mirage (BLT) or Caesars (Payards). So you have a decent bed and a great location, with a little less cost than actually sleeping at the Wynn. I spent a lot of time at the TI sportsbook, and it kind of mirrors TI itself -- nothing to write home about, but somehow vaguely comfortable and accommodating.

    Hello All,

    Headed to TI on Christmas Day for my first trip to Vegas. Is there a hot tub open to be used right now or is it closed? I thought I saw something about pool maintenance and wasn't sure about the hot tub. Any help is appreciated.
