Lake Las Vegas is a completely different type of destination than the Las Vegas Strip, a fact that families often appreciate. Located about 20 miles away from the Strip, Lake Las Vegas is a subdued desert get-away, in sharp contrast to the usual Las Vegas glitz and glitter. One of Lake Las Vegas' exclusive hotels was recently transformed, changing from the Lowes Lake Las Vegas into the Westin Lake Las Vegas.Westin Lake Las Vegas — Photo courtesy of Westin Lake Las Vegas
A property-wide renovation of the resort’s 493 rooms upgraded the beds and bathrooms. The resort offers both standard guest rooms and suites. Amenities include two restaurants, a lounge, beautiful grounds, two pools, beaches, a golf course, and a spa.
The nearby MonteLago Village is a collection of shops and restaurants, all housed in an Italian-inspired design that’s immensely walkable and picturesque. Gondola rides and boat excursions depart from the village’s dock. This is a family-friendly area that both adults and kids can feel comfortable in. One casino in the village gives the adults the chance to gamble, but the overall attraction of Lake Las Vegas is that the whole family can enjoy the area’s activities.
The Westin Lake Las Vegas is just minutes from Lake Mead National Recreation Area. You can spend days exploring the shoreline and the colorful desert landscape around Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake (by volume) in the United States. If you like to hike, boat, or just take scenic rides, Lake Mead is a fun destination.
The Westin’s comfortable, roomy, and upscale rooms give guests a relaxing place to stay at Lake Las Vegas. If you’re looking for a vacation that doesn’t feature gambling, the Westin gives you an option that will show you a completely different side of Las Vegas.
