Located in an upscale, Green Valley strip mall; free, 20-minute shuttle ride from the Strip
Its close to a local casino with its own microbrewery as well as some notable franchise restaurants -- an Olive Garden, Joe's Crab Shack, and TGI Friday's among them -- but the Residence Inn is otherwise far removed from most of the tourist attractions on the Strip. Fortunately, the hotel offers a free shuttle to the Strip.
More apartment complex than hotel -- there's a sofa bed and full kitchen in all 126 rooms -- the casinoless Residence Inn is located among the strip malls of safe (suburban) Green Velley. Its rooms are a bit older, but still very comfortable, and if you're after the Strip, a free, 20-minute shuttle heads there six times a day.
