Away from the Strip and the I-15 corridor, the extensive western suburbs of Las Vegas (including the town of Spring Valley) stretch for ten miles towards the foothills of the Spring Mountains. This area is predominantly residential, containing many upscale estates on the flat, gently sloping land, some based around country clubs and golf courses such as Canyon Gate, Siena, Spanish Trail and Arroyo; the most exclusive are those on the western edge, as they have the best views of the city. Loop 215 runs all around the perimeter, while US 95 and the Summerlin Parkway cross the center; other main roads, with shopping and lodging, include Sahara Avenue, Charleston Blvd, Flamingo Road and Rainbow Blvd.
Considered one of the top hotels in all Las Vegas, the 545-room/suite JW Marriott Resort is surrounded by 50 acres of landscaped desert towards the west edge of the city in the Summerlin area - about half way (ten miles) between the Strip and the unspoilt scenery at Red Rock Canyon. The luxurious, well managed resort has an AAA Four Diamond rating and provides comprehensive facilities for leisure, business, meetings and events. Amongst the many highlights are 11 restaurants & bars, a casino, a large pool complex with waterfall, cabanas & bar, the TPC Las Vegas golf course, the Aquae Sulis Spa & Salon, and 100,000 sq ft of meeting space.
