Towering Hotel and Sprawling Casino Crown the Strip
Hauntingly seductive melodies and countermelodies ring from an ornately decorated tall ship, luring in a inquisitive pirate who boards the seemingly empty ship to find its source. Suddenly, fireworks fire from the back of the boat, a curtain drops, and more than a half-dozen women encircle the stupefied pirate, strutting and dancing to exotic club music. The hundreds of spectators watching the action in the cove haven’t stepped into some alternate dimension where the Sirens from The Odyssey actually exist—they’re enjoying the Sirens of TI show at Treasure Island Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The AAA Four Diamond, 95,000-square-foot casino hosts this free, live spectacle five times a day, in addition to world-class dining venues and bars.
Inside the hotel, some have a bird’s-eye view of the pirate’s cove from their studio-style deluxe rooms, which span nearly 400 square feet and invite rest on one king or two queen Elite Sensational pillow-top beds. Other rooms provide views of the mountains surrounding the Las Vegas Valley through floor-to-ceiling windows. Flat-screen LCD TVs provide entertainment after late nights cruising Vegas’s signature bright lights, endless casinos, and intense mathlete competitions. Marble floors and countertops lend the bathroom a stately vibe, and large soaking tubs make for quick, easy relaxation.
The casino level hosts extensive gaming options, from slots and video poker to its race and sports book. Dining credits can be used at one of nine restaurants, from fine dining at Phil's Italian Steakhouse to casual fare at Gilley's BBQ. Guests seeking a calm escape can venture to Oleksandra Spa & Salon, founded by Miss Ukraine Universe winner Oleksandra Nikolayenko.
Las Vegas: Adventure On and Off The Strip
Treasure Island's location on the Strip comes in close proximity to dozens of attractions, including a pedestrian bridge that connects the hotel to Fashion Show Mall. After perusing high-end wares, travelers can stroll down the Strip to bathe in the neon lights, hop between nightclubs, or get hitched in one of the city’s infamous themed chapels. An array of shows dazzles on a nightly basis, from standup comedians to Motown revues to opulent magic shows. Off the Strip, the quirky Pinball Hall of Fame caters to one’s arcade-craving inner child with vintage amusements, such as the 1952 Crossroads pinball machine.
