We owned a timeshare here for several years. The last time we visited was in June of 2004. We ended up selling our timeshare in 2005 because we were not able to use it enough to justify the high yearly maintenance fees. I highly recommend if you are looking to purchase a timeshare, any timeshare, that you never ever buy straight from the developer. Only buy a timeshare on the secondary market. Very few people ever get their moneys worth if they pay the retail price.

That said, Polo Towers is a pretty nice place, I would say about the equivalent of a 3 star hotel. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, and having the refrigerator and kitchen facilities is very nice. No other hotel I have stayed at in Vegas had a refrigerator. If you are going to stay in a two bedroom unit, it is supposed to be able to sleep 6 people. However, we heard from our friends that stayed with us that the fold-out couch was very uncomfortable, so that is probably best left for kids or young adults. The king bed in the main bedroom was comfortable and definately not too hard. If you are staying in one of the studios, we saw at least 2 different kinds of beds. If you get a studio with a regular bed that will be the most comfortable. If you get a studio with the pull down bed that turns into a couch, that bed was much less comfortable.

The lobby was clean and well decorated, but is pretty small. Be aware that the only onsite store is a small gift shop that has nothing but a few snacks and some souvenirs and closes early. The pool is a big negative for this hotel, it's on the roof, is very small, has only about 20 loungers and has little shade. The pool landscaping is practically non-existant, i.e. no plants, palm trees, waterfalls, etc. that seem to be a standard at most strip hotels. If you want to lounge by a decent pool, definatly do not come to Polo Towers. In 2002, we paid a special assessment fee that they were collecting in order to build a 2nd pool area that would be larger and more family oriented, leaving the roof pool for adults only. However, during our visit in June of 2004, we did not see any sign that any construction had begun on this pool. There is no on-site restaurant, room service or casino. However, next door there is a small strip mall with an indoor food court served by several fast food style booths. I think you can get food delivered from outside restaurants, but not sure how this works.

This hotel is on the strip in between the MGM Grand and the Aladdin. It is about a half block set back from Las Vegas Blvd, so there is a bit of a walk to get to the street. It is about a 10 minute brisk walk to the Aladdin or Monte Carlo and even further to the MGM Grand so if you or someone you are traveling with has mobility problems or is sensitive to the heat(if you visit during summer), you don't want to stay here. Additionally, practically the entire walk to the surrounding casinos you will be approached by numerous street vendors selling tours, timeshares, etc. Also, there will be numerous people trying to push flyers into your hands. If you don't want to walk through all this just to get to the nearest casino, don't stay here.

Overall, I might recommend this place if you can get a cheap rate. It is clean, comfortable, centrally located to the strip and safe. The downsides are the lack of on-site amenities and the walking distance to get to any of the big casinos. One of the reasons that we sold our unit is because we didn't want to stay here any more when we came to Vegas. There are so many better hotels on the strip and the casinos just offer so many more amenities. Every time we stayed here, we wished we were staying in one of the casinos instead because we got sick of having to walk 15 to 30 minutes just to get a decent meal and to gamble.

We just came back from 1 week at Polo Towers; it is not the Marriott 5-Star quality.....the pool on roof is only 3 ft and was green when we arrived. The hotel didn't know why it was green; that was very upsetting. The suites were clean but not high quality furniture and cheap formica cabinets, and did meet the Marriott standards. Then we find out that there were other Villas of upgraded quality in the Towers that we could have gotten as Marriott owners. The staff was helpful but the location of hotel was not at the best part of the strip. The shopping in front of the building was dirty and smelly and that's where the fitness center was located; not on site as stated. We would not recommend the Polo Towers.

The positives first: Location great, kids waterpark my 5 y.o. enjoyed, ATM machine on site so you dont get raked over the coals on cash advances. Tram service (but I didnt use) No timeshare sales pressure, comfortable King bed. Staff friendly and attentive. Daily towel service.
Now the bad or at least worse than expected: Outdated at least 10 years - old uncomfortable couch which was even worse as a bed, shower/bath slow drain , General bad smell- smokey in the room, alley smell outside- (go figure there is an alley right outside with dumpsters), Dirty pool, Patio off unit filthy and no chairs.
Basically it served its purpose as a room with a kitchen- It just makes me Question how Interval International rated this a five star.

My family just returned from Polo Towers in Las Vegas. We had a great time. It's easy to keep kids busy during the day hours. Lucky for us! We didn't have to spend a lot of time in our room. We traded into a two bedroom on the 15th floor from our home resort in Orlando-(major difference in 5 Star ratings) The carpets were torn, cheap furniture and kitchen fixtures, stained towels in bathrooms, and broken toilets. How can this be rated a 5 Star? All three TV's were 13 or 14 inch! There is a pool on the roof top, that is only 3 feet deep! Kids are only allowed there until 5 pm then if they are under the age of 14 they must go to the kids pool and "splash park" located on the second floor. Again, this is a joke. It's only for toddlers. Access to the hotel lobby and shuttle service is off the street, down an alley. Yes, it is well lit, but it is beside an open parking lot and the alley is deserted when you return to the hotel after dark. What were they thinking??? There should be covered walkway from the street. The lounge was adequate. Also, no internet access in the resort.
Las Vegas was GREAT! the location was GREAT (we could actually see the fountains at the Bellagio from the balcony) but Polo Towers has alot of upgrading to do.
There is a lot of police presence on the Strip, but I felt very safe walking at night. The shops are great, because there is something for every price range, the buffets are great for families, and cabs are easy to catch. The monorails and trams are great. The Venetian is a must, the fountains at Bellagio are a must and the Rainforest cafe at MGM is great for kids.

We traded our Marriott timeshare time for a week at Polo Towers as we love Las Vegas and knew that Polo has a great location on the Strip, without argument. However, we were angry with ourselves for not investigating further, as this was far below the quality of a Marriott facility. Our family of 5 was set up in a condo on 15th floor for 6. However, they were prepared for 4 guests: only 4 glasses, 4 plates, 4 chairs (one broken), etc. The unit was simply "tired" and needs to be gutted and upgraded. None of the fine touches of Marriott. No washer or dryer in unit (ones available for building not even on our floor), no garbage disposal (food scraps can get a bit pungent in Vegas as they percolate in an under-sink trash can on the 15th floor in hot Las Vegas), small tv set, burnt out light bulbs in lamps that were never replaced in spite of us leaving notes around the unit, shower faucet handle broke off in my hand, toilet only flushed about 25% of the time (classy touch), two nice balconies with view of Strip but none in entire facility had any furniture on them whatsoever and they were so filthy that we did not want to walk out on them, very tiny rooftop pool that was green, underground garage had a funky smell the entire week with rather difficult parking configurations, and, the 19th floor lounge and bar had a great view of the Strip as well, but it was so extremely smokey....even first thing in the morning that the air was intolerable to try to linger in there.
Fortunately, we were thrilled to see the brand new Marriott Grand Chateau towers being built just behind Polo, and they are going to be gorgeous and top notch I'll bet. We look forward to returning to Vegas and staying there in the future instead.
