Took a quick trip to Harrah's yesterday and stayed over until this morning. A few observations/comments:
Room: Was given a Bayview room at check-in and decided to try it out. The man at check-in said I would have to wait until 2pm for a Waterfront room. Got to the room and immediately realized the bed was not the Harrah's perfect sleeper. Went down to change the room and the woman at check-in said, "we have open waterfront rooms right now." Not exactly sure why there was a difference between the two people. In any case, Waterfront room was great as always.
Pool: Crowded on Saturday afternoon. Pretty much impossible to find a lounge chair, so ended up on the upper level which was fine.
Dinner: Decided to try Mccormick and Schmick's. I thought the food was just OK. Everything seemed a little greasy and definitely a bit overpriced for what it was. I had a steak that was overcooked. I think that if you are looking for a good peice of meat, the Steakhouse would be the better option here.
Casino: No luck whatsover. Didn't really get anything to play with. Saw many people losing. Some were even angry! One lady was literally banging the machine. I was very surprised she didnt break the screen! I did see some people winning though, but definitely not an exciting atmosphere by any stretch.
Crowds: Saturday night was somewhat busy. The pool was packed of course at night. All and all it didn't seem to be dead.
Hopefully my trip down for Valentine's day will yield some better luck!
