The Tuscany Suites & Casino in Las VegasCategory: Travel
I recently discovered a diamond in the rough. The Tuscany Suites & Casino in Las Vegas is a relaxing place to hang your hat when visiting Sin City.
Located just off the strip, Tuscany has all the amenities of the larger resorts without the hustle and bustle. It’s a quiet retreat with the flavor of Las Vegas. Instead of being a huge high rise, this resort is a group of 15 smaller buildings grouped together with easy parking access. After you check in you don’t have to maneuver your way through a large casino to a slow elevator. The atmosphere here is low-key and stress free.
The rooms are enormous. The only choice you have is a single king size bed or two doubles. Whatever you select, there is still a decent size bathroom, kitchenette, and living space with a couch, desk, and chairs. With 650 square feet, these suites are a welcome change from the average hotel rooms. Plus they have a 2-bedroom suite if you need a second bedroom.
There are exercise rooms with weights and treadmills and The Spa offers a nice selection of massage options. And they won’t break the bank. Compared to other resorts, the fees for massages are much less, ranging from $60 for a 50 minute Swedish Massage to $180 for an 80 minute Couples Swedish Massage. These prices are definitely competitive.
There are several options for dining at the resort. Marilyn’s Café is open 24 hours. For a hotel coffee shop, this place has a wide variety of options from which to choose. Plus, there are daily specials and you can’t beat the all you can eat pancakes for $3.99! Pub 365 is the place to grab a small bite or burger. Their variety of craft beers and specialty beers makes this a destination for locals as well as guests. Caffe Bottega is where you can grab a fast cup of coffee or specialty drinks and some pastries and salads. And, fine dining is elevated in Tuscany Gardens, where I personally recommend the Eggplant Lasagna.
Nightly entertainment is offered in the Piazza Lounge. And, for a blast from the past, The Rat Pack is Back plays Monday through Saturday in the Copa Room. Frank, Sammy, and Dean have returned to Las Vegas – in spirit. These 2018 guys sound and move exactly like their 1962 counterparts. This is truly a show from the past.
If you simply must have your slot machines, the casino here is just the right size. It has enough games while not being overwhelming, as in many of the large hotels.
The 715 suites have undergone an extensive “refresh” “We are consistently looking for ways to reinvigorate the guest experience here at Tuscany Suites & Casino,” stated Brett Heers, the owner of the resort. “Over the last few years, we have completed major redevelopment projects to elevate our offerings into Las Vegas’ best.”
And speaking of Las Vegas’ best, the resort won several awards in 2017:
• Best Beer Selection – Gold for PUB 365 by readers in Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “2017 Best of Las Vegas”

A lounge, spa, gift shop, restaurants, large rooms, pool, and plenty of areas to sit inside and outside, Tuscany is a little gem. And there is free Wi-Fi and free parking.
