I was a little hesitant when I booked our week as this hotel is not within walking distance of the Vegas Strip, but that hesitation disappeared when we arrived. Right beside the Grandview is South Point Casino - it's a short walk across the street to the casino where you can grab a bite to eat if you didn't want to cook in the rooms. Parking on the strip at the big casino's is free, so you can come and go to the strip as you please with a rental car, or the casino next door has a (pay) shuttle.
We had a 2 bdrm suite - it's 2 single bdrm suites adjoined by a common entry way - it was fantastic!!! Both sides had their own privacy when needed, but open the doors and you had a super large suite to enjoy. 2 fridges, 2 stoves and best of all - 2 washer/dryers! Trust me, you need a washing machine in Vegas to get the smokey smell out of your clothes! The showers had plenty of hot water and the jacuzzi tubs were heaven for our boys to bathe in.
Our little kids (1 & 3) were never bored in the suite - from the Disney channel to the DVD player to the large windows overlooking the neighboring casino - the boys spent most of their waking moments starring out the window as the delivery trucks came and went, and there was a horse show at the casino and the boys LOVED watching the horses run in the rings outside.
The pools were nice and not crowded and lots of clean, fresh towels - only 1 pool had bearable water that you could walk right into, the other pools took a bit of getting used to. The hot tubs were great! We were high up on the 17th floor in Daisy building and would request that floor/building again next time we go (it's also a non-smoking building) - downside is that you would walk through a plume of smoke from the smokers who would stand right outside the entrance door - perhaps a sign asking them to walk 10 more feet away from the door is in order.
A common complaint seems to be that the floors are dirty - yes, they are, but I couldn't tell if it was the rug or the tile that was dirty, and lets face it, it's a hotel and not everyone takes off their shoes like they do at home, so dirty floors weren't a surprise.
Parking was great - there was always a space for our 2 rental cars within a minute of our building.
We never used the house keeping, so I can't comment on that.
Oh, and being a time share, and since we aren't owners, I was expecting a hard sell on their tour/talk and we only had 1 unexpected phone call to remind us of our "tour time" which we hadn't booked - but they didn't pressure us. Mind you, we weren't there at check in, but from what I heard, it wasn't too bad. I was expecting a sales person every day and was very pleasantly surprised.
I can't wait to go back!
Ask for a high floor overlooking the South Point Casino - there will always be something to watch!
