Arrival Experience: A free shuttle whisks guests to the McCarran Inn (a Best Western property), which is less than two minutes from the airport. With that proximity comes the trade off of airplane noise as they take off overhead. Luckily, the noise is only noticeable when they take off in one direction due to the winds. Ear plugs are provided in guest rooms should light sleepers become disturbed. Front desk staffs are welcoming, and coffee, tea, fruit water, and candy stations add the same effect.
Dining: There is no onsite restaurant here, but the complimentary breakfast each morning suffices for the mostly short-term stays here. Hot dishes include eggs and sausages plus oatmeal, fresh fruit, and cereal. For those with early morning flights, to-go breakfast bags are a thoughtful touch by reception.
Rooms: A central atrium provides sitting space, and both stairs and elevators rise to the upper floors. Soft carpeting looks fresh, and king or queen beds lure guests with their thick comforters and multiple pillows. A bright alarm clock sits by the bed as does an electrical outlets for overnight charging of mobile devices. Bathrooms have small vanities with Pantene shampoo and mouthwash. Shower pressure is good, and curved shower rods keep the curtain at bay. Flat-screen cable TVs (with sanitized remote controls, Best Western’s signature touch), free wireless Internet, refrigerators, and sofas are in all rooms.
Amenities: Guests can take a dip in the hotel’s swimming pool or workout in the small fitness center should they wish to get some exercise in during their stay. There is no casino here, but the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas is just a short drive away. This is undoubtedly a solid airport hotel. I took the 5am shuttle for a 5:50 am flight and ended up with time to spare.
