Live like a local at this 678-unit luxury apartment complex that has 95 apartments available for rent by the day, week or month. One- and two-bedroom flats come with all the creature comforts: housewares, linens, full kitchens, telephone answering machines and washers and dryers. The units have spacious 9-foot ceilings and private balconies and are ensconced inside security gates. The modern Spanish-style complex, set on manicured grounds just a half-mile east of The Strip, blends recreation with business. The Meridian offers two lagoon-size pools and spas, tennis and racquetball courts and a health club. Conference rooms and meeting facilities also are available, and corporate residents can take advantage of a concierge desk that handles faxes, photocopying and video equipment. A 21-seat mini-theater is an ideal venue for screening training films. Weekly maid service also is available.
