Was very impressed with the room. Was spacious and looked to be newly renovated. I stayed in the West tower. Nice huge flatscreen tv with HD, bed was comfortable and bathroom was a good size. Only negative which wasn't a huge deal was no free wifi. I only stayed one night but was glad I chose this place for my...

I had to book a room for CES at pretty much the last minute, and I'm grateful that my players club card got me a decent rate here. Although I've gambled here before, it was my first stay at the California, and it was as nice as many have described here. My room was perfectly clean and comfortable, although I'm...

We have a rule never to "downgrade" between hotels so we were concerned when we checked out of Caesars Palace and into The California (due to CES prices rose too high on the Strip). No need to worry since our room at The Cal was just as nice as our room at Caesars. The staff was very friendly and helpful,...

I stayed for 2 nights in a non-refurbished east tower room on floor 7. Although a nonsmoking floor, the hall and them smelled dank - an odd mix of stale smoke and mildew. My room was nothing special - 2 queens and an odd bathroom built into the room by the window. The heater was blowing cool air, which was...

This was our first stay at the California Hotel and it now shouldn't be our last. We stayed here for four nights arriving on 01/05/2017. We actually stayed here because we won a silent auction package as part of a charity, in which the California Hotel donated a room package to the charity. We paid for it, and we loved...

I booked rooms well in advance upon seeing special for nye wristbands. When calling to dbl check my reservations, I was told there was no special in the time I got rooms. I called for my original reservation. I happen to screen shot the special on my phone. Good thing because the argued the difference with me and was insistent...

We have as a family been going to Vegas for Christmas for over 15 years. We like staying in downtown Vegas because it's close to the shopping outlet. We stay at either the Cal or Mainstreet, whichever one is cheaper. This year was the Cal. We got a room in the newly renovated wing. It was very nice. The beds...

Just Heard that the hotel and casino just done with the modeling. The rooms looks nice and clean, just the bathroom area is quite small, and the windows are not really noice insulated, you can clearly " enjoy" the concert down at the Fremont!

They have turned a run down old hotel into a Hawaiian experience. The hotel is in downtown Las Vegas. It is a B Connect hotel. The rooms were quite nice and the lady at the check-in desk was able to get us a room on a busy Friday night even though the website I booked with went out of business.

Love the newly renovated guest rooms on the 18th floor! Firm beds, lots of pillows, gorgeous bathroom esp the walk-in shower. Great amenities esp the body lotion. Quiet A/C. Fridge, but no micro, no coffee maker, and no free wifi. The window shutters perfectly shut out the sunlight. Great room; great front desk; great maintenance (we had to call about...
