It is fun when friends and family visit Las Vegas and have the “tourist experience” staying on the Las Vegas Strip. Locals can also indulge by planning a weekend at SpringHill Suites and play tourists while being pampered.

Waking up on a beautiful Southern Nevada morning and looking out at the view of the mountains surrounding the Strip, decisions need to be made.
