On the southwest corner of Spring Mountain and Las Vegas Blvd, sharing property with the Mirage directly next door and across from the Fashion show mall TI enjoys one of the best locations in town. In addition there is a free tram between Mirage and TI and a bridge for pedestrians to the Fashion show located on the other side of Spring Mountain. A few years ago Treasure Island grew up. She went through a complete modernization, replaced their Disney-esc Arg! Arg! pirates with a sexy Siren show, added a bunch of “hip” restaurants and night spots, and renamed them self TI. The Sirens of TI is one of the favorite free shows on the Strip and can be seen every 90 minutes after dark right outside of the TI front entrance. It features sexy sirens naturally.

TI is a four star hotel by most ratings, and that is a pretty accurate assessment most agree. It is actually the sister site of the Mirage, and gets much of the Mirage overflow in busy seasons and holidays. That said, TI appeals to a slightly younger party crowd and is in most instances less expensive. Booking in advance is a must during any busy holiday or summer weekend. Due to the location it may fill during specific large conventions so call ahead.
