Treasure Island Hotel in Las Vegas

Updated on July 23, 2012

Beware of the Pirates!

Treasure Island was built in 1993, but for some reason it seems a lot older than that. Maybe it's because right across the street are some of the newest, most luxurious hotels in Las Vegas, including the Venetian, Palazzo, Wynn, and Encore.

Treasure Island was probably one of the last hotels built during the family-friendly phase in Las Vegas, where all the big hotel companies were trying to build entertainment meccas out there in the desert. It feels a little out of place now, as the new hotels and casinos are geared toward adults, and nobody really cares what you do with the kids. Kids don't gamble, and therefore they don't make money for the hotels. Treasure Island is kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place, because it was obviously built for the whole family, but now they've had to become more adult-oriented to keep up with the competition. It has created an atmosphere that is akin to the Disneyland Strip Club (which doesn't actually exist, if you're interested).

Rooms rates and reviews

Guest rooms at Treasure Island, or ti as they like to call it, start at about $100 a night. These rooms have a king or two queen beds, which is something only offered in suites in many other hotels. The window is relatively thin but it does run from floor to ceiling, which is nice. You'll want a window with a nice view of Sirens Cove so you can watch the Treasure Island pirate show every night. It's not as good as the fountain show at the Bellagio or the volcano at Mirage, but it's free.

Upgraded rooms include the Petite Suite, Executive Suite, Tower Suite, Luxury Suite, Premier Suite and the Penthouse Suite. These rooms will cost everywhere from $150 to over $1000 a night, depending on the room and what days you book.

I would suggest that you check out ti's promotions before you book. The last I checked I saw they had the Deluxe Room for $69 a night and it comes with 2 for 1 tickets to the Mystere Cirque du Soleil show, 2 for 1 beers at the saloon and dance hall, VIP viewing of the Sirens of Titan free show, and perhaps best of all free WiFi in your room. That's one of the best deals in Las Vegas, in my opinion.

    I did not mean to imply that Treasure Island is family friendly now. If you read the hub I did on the new Sirens of Ti show, you'd see that I noted that it is sultry and geared toward adults. I was just saying that Treasure Island was originally family-friendly. I stayed there 15 years ago, and I've been there again 3 months ago. It's a much different world, as ti (along with most of Las Vegas) has given up on being a family destination.

    This is NOT an accurate review of Treasure Island. It's obvious the author has not been to what many now refer to as "TI". The video above is from 2008 (if not earlier) and does not represent the current rooms, which were completely renovated as of September 2008. They left behind anything that might be considered "family friendly" years ago, and they have nothing that caters to children other than a very small arcade.

    TI is a good bang for the buck in Las Vegas and the location on the strip is great.

    What ever happened to the $3.99 steak and eggs or the .99 cent shrimp cocktail?
