Shalimar's best feature is its location; It is near the Convention Center in the Historic District on Las Vegas Boulevard between the World Renown Las Vegas Strip and the Downtown Fremont Street Experience. This part of the city has areas that others might deem as unpleasant, but that is because they do not know about the hidden, secrets this area presents.

You can book a room for as low as $100 per night.
In between old Vegas and new Vegas.
The Florida Grill has fun entertainment and a charming atmosphere, but besides the restaurant, there is nothing else on site.
Clean and Comfortable with friendly service.
The Wyndham Grand Desert is a thumbs up for us. We love the location. It lies just outside the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip giving guests the options to have a dramatic evening in the city or a quiet stay in the hotel's spacious suites.
The full-size kitchen allows guests to cook their favorite meal. Enjoy your home baked dinner as you sit back with a great movie on the large screen TVs. The kids can hop down to the main area and spend family time shooting billiards or playing video games.
The pool and outside grounds are spacious enough to give you peace and serenity. You can sit under the desert sky, to take a nap or read a book. Without all the noise of daytime partyers.
The location price and amenities are not 5-star elegance with action-packed casinos and upscale decor, but it is enough to give it a 4-star rating.
