Don’t expect the same old thing when visiting the Las Vegas resort and casino, Treasure Island. Toward the end of last year, the 16-year-old resort unveiled its 2,665 renovated guestrooms and 220 revamped suites — a more than $50 million renovation.

Some of the upgrades are more obvious than others. Upon entering the new guestrooms and suites, clients will likely notice the room’s gentle curves, neutral tones and bright accents of lime, yellow, red and orange. It may take until nightfall for them to discover all the new amenities as well, particularly the new Treasure Island Elite Sensational Pillow Top Beds. And those who find the mattress comfier than the one back home need not worry — the beds are available at the downstairs gift shop, ranging in price from $1,400 to $1,900.

Clients can also enjoy amenities, such as 26-inch LCD flat-screen televisions, MP3/iPod-compatible radios and high-speed Internet access added to their accommodations. In addition, bathrooms are adorned with Wet products, The Spa & Salon at Treasure Island’s signature bath product line.

Petite, Tower and Executive Suites provide guests with even more amenities and innovative design elements. Ranging in size from 630 square feet to 930 square feet, the suites offer dramatic foyers, sitting areas and dual bathrooms that feature whirlpool tubs, glass-enclosed showers and his-and-her closets.

"The modern redesign of our rooms provides guests with a comfortable place to recharge," said Treasure Island president Tom Mikulich. "Our attentive staff and superior guest service ensure guests feel welcome from the moment they check-in. The addition of stylish designs will assure they remember us long after they check out."

Treasure Island is also known for having some of the best entertainment options on The Strip — and at affordable prices. Tickets for comedian Bill Engvall’s performances on Feb. 26 and 27, range from $49 to $65 plus tax and handling fees. Additionally, the resort and casino is offering $60 tickets for select Cirque du Soleil "Mystere" performances in February. Clients can add more value to their night out with the Mystere Dinner Package, which includes a show ticket, popcorn and dinner before the show at The Steak House, Pizzeria Francesco’s, Isla Mexican Kitchen or Social House. The price is $126 per person, plus a service fee, and a prix-fixe menu applies.

Treasure Island guests also get the VIP treatment, skipping the cover charge of $20 for women and $30 for men at Christian Audigier The Nightclub, which opened in July of last year. The new hot spot incorporates fashion designer Christian Audigier’s trademark designs — such as the iconic rose and skull designs he created for the Ed Hardy line — and original artwork throughout the club. The nightclub also features an outside patio, offering a front-row view of the free theatrical show, "Sirens of TI," and the colorful action on Las Vegas Boulevard.
