Marriott hotel outside Las Vegas

On the west side of Las Vegas, a short distance from Red Rock Canyon, this hotel is an oasis from the lights and traffic of downtown. We recently stayed for a few days while on a short vacation and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The Spanish-style architecture and palm trees in this desert climate are perfect.

I sketched this from our balcony on the third floor as we were packing up on our last morning.
