Treasure Island Hotel and Casino Review

Las Vegas' Treasure Island Hotel and Casino ReviewA modern and lively hotel resort and casino, Treasure Island is one of the most exciting resort destinations in all of Las Vegas. Connected to the massive Fashion Show Mall by a sky bridge, Treasure Island offers an entertaining atmosphere you'll never forget!

If you like the sound of Treasure Island, you'll probably like Mirage, Paris, Planet Hollywood, MGM Grand and Caesars Palace.

History - Treasure Island was opened by Mirage Resorts in 1993 by Steve Wynn. The $450 million construction was initially designed to be an addition to The Mirage, but later evolved into the full-scale resort hotel and casino that stands today. The hotel was designed to be a family-friendly stop for vacationers, and featured iconic skull-and-crossbones motifs, a large video arcade, and nightly full-scale pirate battles in front of the casino. The hotel abandoned its pirate theme for a more modern feel in 2003, but the original video arcade and family-friendly pool areas remain.

Review of Treasure Island Hotel and Casino #2

Treasure Island Hotel & Casino, by Las Vegas standards is old. It's not the oldest property on the Strip; that title still belongs to The Flamingo which opened in 1946. Treasure Island is still one of the older properties on the Las Vegas Strip, having opened in October 1993. You can still see the original concept design of the property, with mermaids carved into the wall and the compasses weaved in the carpet design.

But as time goes on, Treasure Island continues to evolve. Long gone is the nightly pirate show, meant to entertain children and adult tourists. The original signage for Treasure Island, a pirate skull adorned with crossed swords has now found a new home at The Neon Museum.

Food and drink at the Treasure Island is comparable to other nearby properties. The Mojito Bar offer mojitos (of course) and margaritas for as low as seven dollars. The Breeze Bar offers a wider selection in a higher price range. Treasure Island offers a buffet that is well worth the price (20-32 dollars per person). If you're looking for more fine dining, Phil's Italian Steakhouse is a good shout. Other options include Senor's Frogs, Chicago Style Beef & Dogs, Pho-Vietnamese and Seafood Shack.

Parking is simple compared to other hotels but if you make a wrong turn, you can park at The Mirage and walk over (this is what I did!). Treasure Island has not installed the parking meters to collect fares and parking remains complimentary - but for how long?

The highlight of Treasure Island is, of course, Mystere. The Cirque du Soleil show continues to enchant its audiences five nights a week. Ticket prices are affordable compared to other shows and the show is well worth every penny. If you're looking for a place to have a drink, your options range from The Breeze Bar Lounge to Gilley’s Las Vegas. Gilley’s is more for those that enjoy line dancing and country music (older people). The Breeze Bar is more of a lounge, meant for those who want to relax or have a conversation.

The Mirage and the Palazzo are within walking distance from Treasure Island. The fastest option to get to the Mirage is to take the tram, which runs every few minutes and will take you right inside the hotel. The Fashion Show Mall is across the street from Treasure Island and has a plethora of dining and retail options to choose from.
