The JW Marriott Rampart Casino Resort is located at 221 N Rampart Blvd about one bloc south of the Summerlin Parkway. This location is in the Summerlin neighborhood of Las Vegas, near Red Rock Canyon. The JW Marriott overlooks the lights of the city from the mountain's edge. The Rampart Casino is an elegant resort that has a classic Las Vegas western architectural design. The atmosphere offers comfortable relaxed elegance.
The JW Marriott is a full scale resort. This casino resort has a convention center and meeting rooms. Business travelers that seek elegant peace and quiet can find it at this resort. The resort hosts several restaurants, a pool and spa facility too.
Many of the local Summerlin residents frequent the JW Marriott Resort. This destination actually promotes itself as being local's friendly. The players reward comp system at this casino offers great value. The Rampart Casino rewards system creates a high level of customer loyalty that few other casinos in the valley can match.
Many people cannot imagine that luxury and value can be mentioned in the same sentence, but in this case it can. When considering the pleasant atmosphere, the elegance and the high level of customer satisfaction that this resort offers, one would expect to hear that the prices would be at a premium cost. To my surprise, the prices for room packages at the JW Marriott are quite reasonable. In fact the pricing is a real bargain in this modern age.
The main attraction of booking a stay at the JW Marriott Resort happens to be the game of golf. Every major Las Vegas golf course is located in the Summerlin neighborhood. There are a couple of championship golf courses nearby that host professional tournaments each year. One of the golf courses carves its way through rough mountainside canyon terrain and just landing the ball on the green is a real challenge.
Summerlin is an upscale neighborhood. Plenty of fine shopping areas, wine bars and restaurants are located within one mile of this resort. Tivoli Village and Downtown Summerlin have turned into popular shopping destinations in recent years.
Scenic Red Rock Canyon is close by and there are plenty of outdoor activities to do in this area. Hiking and rock climbing are the primary activities, but during spring many folk go to Red Rock to see the desert flower blooms. Wild burros and their newborn foals also head down into the canyon this time of year. One might say that Red Rock Canyon is a photographer's paradise.
The Rampart Buffet
I chose to dine at The Rampart Buffet on a holiday weekend, because the waiting line at a buffet on the Las Vegas Strip is about a mile long on a busy night. Dining off the beaten path is not a bad idea in Las Vegas on a holiday night. Experienced Las Vegas visitors know this as being a fact!
The dining experience at The Rampart Buffet was beyond my expectations and the short waiting line had a lot to do with why I was so pleased. The food offerings were quality oriented and well prepared.
The dining room was comfortable and well maintained. The reason that I mention this is because on a busy holiday night, it is all too easy for a buffet to look like some kind of a food war zone, where the staff cannot keep up with the pace. This was not the case at The Rampart Buffet. I was very impressed with how organized the staff was on that busy evening. It was easy to see why so many regular customers chose this nice buffet setting for their family holiday dinner.
The Rampart Buffet has multiple carving stations that offer an impressive selection of premium items like Pineapple Glazed Whole Ham Leg, Prime Rib, Roast Chicken and Roast Turkey. Even Peking Duck is offered at the carving stations! The international food offerings at this buffet are meant to please the tastes of visitors from around the globe.
This buffet offers everything from classic international entrées to trendy modern creations. Halal and Kosher food items are offered too. The desserts are hand crafted by a talented pastry shop crew. The Rampart Buffet literally offers something nice for any visitor from anywhere. This is by far one of the nicest buffets in the valley!
After dining, I decided to take advantage of the Rampart Casino player's reward system. While playing an Alien movie theme video slot machine, I ended up hitting the Alien Egg Bonus. I actually won enough money to cover all costs that evening and I also earned enough player points to get a free prize spin at a Rampart Casino Players Reward kiosk. The free spin resulted in winning even more redeemable players points, a half price buffet voucher, a free baseball cap and a free pumpkin pie. That's life Off The Strip at the Rampart Casino in Las Vegas!
I highly recommend the Rampart Buffet at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa. This customer friendly casino offers both comfortable elegance and value!
