Welcome to the Strat .
Hi guys .
It's Ruby and we have just checked into our room here at the Strat .
We have never been here before .
We're really excited .
We have booked an elevate king room .
We're on the 19th floor in the select tower .
Let me show you our room when you first come in , things that I have noticed right away is the color palette and just the modern aesthetic .
It makes it feel very new and relaxing .
I feel very chilled out in this room .
I love the lighting that they've done above the headboard .
You can tell they've got a brand new flat screen in here .
They give you a fridge .
Let me show you another huge plus they put a coffee maker in the room for me .
You guys , not for me .
They're for everybody , but I can't tell you how excited I am to roll out of this big bed and make myself a cup of coffee in the room .
Big points to the strategy .
I regard the work of OK .
Everything that happens is his motivation over here by our little window ledge .
We do have a lovely view .
You can see the Sahara , you can see kind of the encore tuck back there .
So we have a really actually nice view of the strip here in this tower .
Very happy with the bathroom , a huge countertop here to put all of your toiletries and things .
The walk-in shower also has the handle on the side that's closer to you rather than underneath the stream .
That means a lot to me because you don't have to like put your arm under the ice cold water .
You can wait for it to heat up little things like that make a difference to me .
This feels modern and renovated and really nice .
So that was our lovely room .
First impressions .
It's a little small but it is such a nice room and I feel really comfortable in it .
So it is midmorning .
We have never been here before .
So we want to explore the whole casino .
We have a full day of dinner , drinks , shows , pool .
There's so much to do .
We need to get started .
Let's go on .
Yeah , just get seated at the Strat cafe .
They have breakfast brunch , lunch , late night .
It's a really popular spot .
We need to get something to eat .
Got our brunch .
My food looks about the right portion .
Mr Ruby's portion is gigantic .
Look at this chicken fried steak .
He told me to give it a shot .
Here we go outside .
Really good , good portions .
Time to eat .
First things first , you got to get your true rewards card .
Now , they told me they have a promotion .
If you spend $25 in slots on the 1st 24 hours , you get $10 in free play .
So we're definitely going to take advantage of that right now .
I really like the casino here .
It's really wide open and spacious , feels high end and the drink service is good .
So hopefully we win some more .
So if you head upstairs , they do have some cheap eats .
There's a mcdonald's here and I'm very happy to announce they have a fat Tuesday .
You don't even have to leave .
So upstairs here they do have some shops , there's an arcade , there's a couple of cheap eats and they also have the sky jump and you can view people coming down .
This is also where you're going to check in for top of the world restaurant .
Don't worry , we're going there later .
Yeah , just got back from our exploring got changed .
We are gonna head to the pool now we're here at the end of pool season .
They did close their large pool down for the season , but they turned their 21 up pool into a year round pool for all guests to enjoy .
So we're gonna go and check out the wet 24 pool .
Now let's go .
Ok , we made it down to what ?
24 which is the 24th floor ?
21 over pool bar during the summer .
It's actually a really nice , beautiful warm day .
The pool is not heated , I don't think , but it is pretty warm for being in mid October .
It is like in the eighties .
It's really comfortable anywhere .
There's a really cool view .
You can see some really beautiful mountains and scenery .
We're gonna hang out here for a little bit before it's time to go back because we have some dinner reservations to make it to .
We just finished getting ready .
So we are actually doing one of their dinner and a show packages and I'll explain more about that later .
But right now we are going to the top of the world restaurant .
That's the spinning restaurant up high in the Strat .
Our reservation is coming up really quick and we need to get going .
So let's go , made it up to the top of the world after a very scary elevator ride , we just got seated .
They seated us facing the strip .
You can see the whole strip from here , but the whole restaurant rotates .
So you're actually going to be spinning the entire time you're seated .
It takes about an hour and 20 minutes to make it all the way around and the sun is setting right now .
It's just a gorgeous view .
Now when you book the dinner initial package , you receive a welcome glass of champagne .
And the chef also brought us a little ash .
We have some ravioli and I believe this is crab .
But let's give this a shot .
This looks amazing .
Oh , delicious .
There's a little bit of caviar here and some sun dried tomato .
Absolutely excellent .
It tastes delicious .
I need to wash it down with a little bit of fruit .
We just sat and watched the sunset behind the mountains while we're like slowly rotating .
It's just gorgeous .
We're having some bread and they have brought my appetizer .
I have got the Caesar salad here .
So this is what comes with the prefix course .
Really excited to give it a shot .
It looks awesome .
Oh my gosh .
We just got our mains and sides which come with the package .
I have decided on the ginger salmon .
It comes with acorn squash with coconut and pickled back .
Choi Mr Ruby has opted for a 10 ounce filet just plain as it comes and our sides , we chose the Brussels sprouts which have pale and pine nuts and we have green beans with almonds .
Everything looks so incredible .
I can't wait to dig in the warm butter cake is their most popular dessert .
It comes with ice cream and fresh berries .
It's really huge .
We're splitting one because it's gigantic .
Let's try it .
I got a little bit of ice cream .
I'm gonna get some of the cake .
See how this is .
This is so delicious .
Get this if you come here for sure .
Now , as I mentioned , we booked dinner and a show .
So here at the Strat , they have like a wide variety of shows .
You can do comedy .
They have a mentalist , they have magicians , they have dancers , performers and we have an Grab Michael Jackson Live .
So we're going to go and see that show .
Dinner show can run you around 151 $175 if you do the top of the world .
But they have other show packages for cheaper , that you can do some of the cheaper restaurants as well .
It's a really good deal , I think .
And it kind of like sets up your whole evening .
So let's go catch our show and I'll see you guys after that .
Let's slow it down , slow down .
Ask , just finished Michael Jackson live .
We really enjoyed it .
It was fabulous .
They played all the really great songs .
The performer was awesome .
The dancers were amazing and it was just a really high energy show .
We were dancing and singing in our seats .
It was really great .
Now , I think it is time for us to head on up .
The night's not over yet .
We're going way back up to the top to 108 to get some drinks at a sky pod .
So let's go .
Ok , we made it back up .
We are here at one oh eight and we got ourselves some cocktails .
So up here is actually a bar .
It's inside and they do have some really cool lounge areas for you to stop and have a drink and enjoy the view .
If you go upstairs to one oh nine , there is actually a really cool observation area up there as well as the insanity , really scary coaster thing .
So we have got two different cocktails to try .
We are trying the botanical bliss and the spiked grapefruit .
I taste a lot of the watermelon .
I taste the so you can definitely taste the tequila and this one is more tequila forward .
I would say if you like a sweet drink or you really like tequila .
This one's really good .
This one's more of that real fresh , really crisp flavor .
Both of them are honestly really good .
I have trouble deciding .
Well , we are gonna enjoy our night here and enjoy our drinks and enjoy the view and we will see you guys all in the morning , check out time and now I need to give you all my final thoughts on the strap .
So this is our first time ever being here .
So I have a ton of thoughts and like overall opinions and I have to say they're pretty positive .
I really enjoyed our stay here .
Let's start with the room .
We are in the select tower that was definitely the best tower to be in .
The other two were more tucked back by the theater and this tower , I just felt like the elevators came really fast and it was in a really convenient location and we are in an elevate king room I did mention it felt kind of small .
The room is like 340 square feet .
I think so .
That's like pretty average .
I think it's that this bed is huge .
I don't think it's a normal king bed .
It feels larger than a normal king .
I had no complaints about the room at all .
It felt really comfortable and cozy , uh super relaxing room .
We're here on E DC weekend .
So the rooms are like outrageous .
The prices don't reflect normal pricing .
Typically , this room runs about $100 a night on the weekdays .
That's including resort fees and all in everything .
So $100 all in for this room , I also want to point out they have rooms here for as low as $50 all in per night during the week .
Now , I can't speak to the quality of those rooms .
Those are their like regular non renovated rooms , but $50 is like a budget budget hotel with bare amenities .
And this is not that this has tons of amenities , but the crown jewel the shining was absolutely the top of the world Restaurant .
This service was amazing and super high end like I had a black dress on , they immediately came and gave me a black napkin instead of a white one .
The slowly rotating the view was beautiful and the food quality was excellent .
So it is a place I would absolutely recommend .
I also recommend you combine it with a show these dinner and show package thing is a really cool concept .
Like I said , you can basically pick from the three restaurants they have in here and then pick from different shows that they have and combine them at different price points .
But to eat at the top of the world with any of the shows that they have offered was between 100 and 50 and 100 and $70 .
Mr Ruby's steak was like $70 in itself .
And our Michael Jackson show tickets would have been like $90 on their own .
So think of combining that along with everything else you get .
It's a totally good deal and you're basically set for the night .
Now , let's talk about the one downfall to the Strat .
The one thing that makes it like not the absolute best choice ever in Vegas .
And that is the location .
Just know that your Uber budget will have to be included and that you could take an Uber over to like the win and there is a Montreal station at Sahara , which is about a block and a half from here that you could go to .
But it really is the only bad thing I think about the Strat is its location .
We were impressed .
I mean , the drink service on the casino floor was great .
Gaming was fun .
I would be happy to catch some more shows and try some of the other restaurants overall .
I definitely give it a high rating .
We had a great time .
I liked this room .
I would love to come back and try one of the other rooms and compare and see the pool .
So I hope that this was helpful for you guys and give you a lot of good information .
