    I've stayed at both
    I prefer Red Rock............but they both are very nice
    Green Valley was more laid back the times I've been there ---
    but that is not a bad thing.
    Red Rock has a bit more energy - seems to have a few more
    options - has a larger feel - as well.
    That scenic drive is close by, too.
    Red Rock had a shuttle to the strip + airport = I used both -- don't remember Green Valley's?

    Red Rock has a Hotel Guest line to the buffet (or at least, they used to). GVR does not. Makes for a longer wait.

    GVR has screaming teenybopper girl music overhead in the casino. It is maddening. Red Rock has tolerable music. Red Rock is very, very nice. However, --

    We stay at GVR more because of the location near (ish) to the airport.

    RR is a longer drive up the 215, a little scary during rush hour, but otherwise fine. GVR is a much shorter drive.

    Yes, GVR has an airport shuttle, too.

    Red Rock is near the Suncoast, a great Boyd casino and hotel (about 10 minutes by car). GVR is near nothing, except maybe M Resort, Fiesta, or Sunset Station, which I consider to be FAR.

    (The Suncoast has the only Du-Pars in the Las Vegas area now. Everything they say about Du-Par's pancakes is true).

    Both GVR and RR sell Black & White cookies in the bakery area of the coffee shop. Good muffins, too, but you can get the same muffins the buffet breakfast, too.

    We stay at RR if we are comped by a host (phone call, ask to speak to a host). Otherwise, if we need to be near the car rental or airport, we stay at GVR, where we have mail offers.

    Both great. If forced to pick one I'd say RR.

    We stay at both on a regular basis and I can't really say that I like one over the other. I like the rooms at both although they are very different. I like RR buffet better. I like the pool at GVR better (we always use the spa pool-no kids). I like that RR is close to Downtown Summerlin and Suncoast. It's a toss-up but I do seem to do better gambling at GVR.

    I've also stayed at both. You can't go wrong with either one. If you want something closer to the strip, go with GVR. I didn't use the pool, but I think GVR has the better of the two, nut RR does have a nice pool. The buffet is hands down better at RR.

    Another vote for Red Rock. I like the decor and room better. Gambling and buffets pretty comparable. Also, having the shopping center within walking distance from RR is nice.
