The historic Aruba Hotel & Spa dates back to 1948, when it first opened as the then Fabulous Thunderbird – only the fourth major resort on the Las Vegas strip. Throughout its glory years, the Thunderbird hosted performers like George Burns, Jack Benny, Bob Hope and May West, plus the lavish Ziegfeld's Follies.
Today, the hotel still attracts top entertainers and offers guests an unparalleled Vegas experience at the recently reopened Thunderbird Lounge. Unlike the bigger hotels on the Strip, the Aruba is hassle free – from parking to check-in to room service. The pool also has an on-site restaurant.
The Aruba Hotel and Spa’s guestrooms are spacious and comfortable with cable TV, telephone and coffee maker. There are a number of room configurations from which guests can choose: Standard King, Deluxe King, Mini Suites and Jacuzzi Suites.
The hotel has an outdoor pool, exercise pool, free wireless Internet access is available in the lobby, has a 24-hour front desk, ice and vending machines, restaurant and lounge, parking is free, meeting rooms suitable for functions of all size and more.
