We have never stayed at the Rio, but visited during the WSOP 2 years ago. They have sent me a comp 4 nights stay (during the the WSOP---woo hoo, more poker watching, I know I enjoy it, I'm weird) and I needs some help.
How's the pool? How early do you need to get there to get 2 loungers together?
Any good places to eat?
Has anyone used the shuttle to the strip? I heard it runs every half hour, but is it pretty regular? Does it go straight to Harrah's?
I've read the rooms are a touch dated, but our two most recent stays were at Flamingo and the rooms were fine (1 deluxe, 1 go)...will we be ok?
Any other tips you have to share?
