Though it’s called Treasure Island (TI to locals), the pirate theme that gave this hotel its name is no longer as obvious. Renovations have toned down the property almost to a fault. Gone from the front is the swashbuckling Sirens of TI ship, once home to an innuendo-laden (and pretty stupid) show, and now all you walk past is the giant red façade of a Señor Frog’s and the docked pirate ship that reminds you of the show that once was. The hideous brown building that anchors the hotel at the corners of Spring Mountain and Las Vegas Boulevard houses a CVS and looks out of place, appearing more like a medical center than what should be a welcoming first sight for the formerly fun property.
TI rooms, while pleasant enough, aren’t too exciting to look at. That being said, they’re cozy, with warm, earthy tones, but the TI-branded (“SensaTIonal”) pillow-top mattresses are probably the best part of the deal.
Comic book fans of all ages might enjoy the new Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N., a new immersive attraction that is much like a Marvel Cinematic Universe “museum.”
Mystére is the longest running Cirque du Soleil show in town and is still considered one of the best.
