Putting a 490-room resort casino 20 minutes off the Strip might seem like risky business, but if you build it luxurious enough, they will come. The problem is, who are "they"? The place attracts an uncanny mix of characters: the 45-plus Architectural Digest crowd, who favor a more resortlike experience and dig the Italianate architecture, patterned fabrics, and Bubble Bath Concierge; and the 25-40 Wallpaper set, who sex up the eight-acre sandy pool playground by day and the DJ-spinning Whiskey Bar by night. Both demographics meet in the casino, which can be a bit awkward—is it a party or refined gaming? But then the moment passes and everybody goes back to losing their wages. Don't stay here if you plan on hitting the Strip every night: The cab fare pushes $20 each way (though there is a free shuttle service). Dining at Green Valley Ranch is meant for a quick fix, so we recommend walking over to always-open Kennedy Tavern in The District, a retail promenade adjacent to the resort (2235 Village Walk Dr.; 702-320-8100).
