Actually the block of room rate was quite low for Las Vegas regardless of
gaming or not. That is also why the RAC/ACC conference also has its events at
the Alexus. However the hotel is near other hotels such as the Excalibur,
Tropicana, and even a Motel 6 is located next to the Tropicana. If any one is
interested I will do what I can to help them find a hotel or motel or even
share a room if possible.
The hotel is quite a beautiful resort with three swimming pools, little if
any indoor cigarette smoke, and while no gambling at the Alexus (not even a slot
machine) there is the Hard Rock Casino right across the street. The
standard room I was in last year at the RAC/ACC conference had two rooms, the bed
room had two beds and the living room had a kitchen and living room area with a
refrigerator, sink, and microwave and a fold-out couch in the living room area.
