Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa is a true gem on the northwest side of Las Vegas. Set near breathtaking Red Rock Canyon, it's located about 10 miles west of the Strip on Charleston Boulevard -- just off the Las Vegas Beltway. Among the most elegant and yet most natural hotels (in terms of desert-inspired architecture), this 800-room property features materials like stunning crystals, exotic woods and red sandstone. Lovely water features also abound here.
Offering the warmth and charm not usually found in large resorts, Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa is known for its attentive service.

Plus, the bathroom boasts Calcutta marble, a deep soaking tub, a separate shower and a 15-inch LCD TV. Luxury, presidential and villa suites are available that take comfort to new heights. From all of the rooms and suites, there are sweeping views of the city and Red Rock Canyon.
Guests are sure to spend the majority of their time outside on the resort's lovely deck. The Sandbar Pool encompasses four acres. There's a main pool with a stunning fountain and six wading pools. Along with lounge chairs, daybeds and cabanas, you'll find poolside gaming and a café. In the evenings, this area is often converted into an open-air nightclub that hosts concerts and special events.

For hearty contemporary American fare, head to the Yard House with more than 130 beers on tap. Order New York-style bagels and wonderfully overstuffed sandwiches in The Bagel Café, and savor heaps of old-fashioned barbecue at Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que. Mercadito features creative Mexican cuisine including freshly prepared ceviches, corn masa tortillas, guacamoles and salsas.You can dine around the clock on everything from breakfast skillets to prime rib at the Grand Café. The Feast Buffet is laid out in grandeur for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a variety of stations presenting foods from around the world. The Wiener's Circle, a famed hot dog stand from Chicago, serves up hot dogs, burgers, fresh cut fries, milkshakes and all-day breakfasts. Lighter and quicker fare is dished up in the food court.
A new rustic American restaurant concept by The Light Group called Hearthstone Kitchen & Cellar will open in October 2014.
