My family and I recently spent a weekend at the Westgate Resort and Casino here in Las Vegas. I was nervous at first with everything going on. However, after I saw their WestgateCARES program I knew we’d be safe staying. Honestly, we needed a good Vegas staycation. It’s been several anxiety filled months. We definitely needed a weekend getaway.
“WestgateCARES is our enhanced health and safety plan, developed in response to the current COVID- 19 pandemic as part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring the health and well-being of all our guests, Team Members and the communities we work and live in. Listed below are all of our plans, procedures and protocols that outline exactly how we intend to keep our Team Members, guests and communities safe. We invite all of our partners in hospitality from hotels, resorts, restaurants, retail and more to use these procedures in their own businesses or draw inspiration from them as they help stop the spread of this virus.”
We stayed in a two bedroom hotel room. In addition, the room had a nice size desk facing the window, and a fridge already inside the room.
I think my favorite part of the room was the bathroom. The shower had a rain shower head. It was heavenly to take a shower. In addition, the shower floor was a pebble like tile. It felt so relaxing to take a shower.
The room as a whole made for a great staycation. When we were downstairs in the casino area I saw someone with giant “backpacks” filled with sanitizing solution. He was making sure everything was sanitized. In addition, when we walked into the resort out temperatures were taken before being allowed inside.
The only thing we didn’t get to do that we hoped to do was going to the pool. I’ve heard great things about their pool. Unfortunately, Brooklyn needed to get stitches a two days before our staycation. That meant no pool for our family. My husband’s favorite place at the Westgate is their sports book called the SuperBook. I believe it is the largest sports book in Las Vegas, and it’s smoke free.
Some of the amenities the Westgate offers are:
- Serenity Spa
- Wedding Chapel
- Fitness Center
- Pools & Cabanas
- Access to the Monorail which goes to the Las Vegas Strip
- Business Center
Inside of our room there was a QR code to scan to see what amenities and restaurants were open, and what has changed because of COVID.
We had a great weekend at the Westgate, and I highly recommend checking it out as an option for your next staycation or vacation.
