Stayed 2 day s, a Thursday and Friday and had a great time. We drove to Windsor and check in was quick and relativity painless. We stayed in the Augusta Tower, the kids tower, we were told, the other tower is a adult only tower.
The room was nice. Spa type bathroom, while not huge it was spacious, with all the usual amenities. Shower (all glass), separate tub, nice tilling all around. Just outside the bathroom door was a mini-frig, coffee maker (1 cup), and a small serving area for the appropriate refreshments. We got a nice king size bed and a fold out couch with ottoman. TV seemed small; and that, was from a unsolicited comment from all in the room. I suppose it was a around a 30 inch, maybe it seemed small, since the “norm” at home is so much larger anymore, but the picture was excellent.
Dinner that night we went to the Legends Sports bar. Nice big TV’s. Seated quickly, we were quickly served up drinks and look thru the menu. I thought for a more upper scale Hotel there would be more options. Burgers ($12), chicken sandwich, pizza tin crust only, ribs and a few other items. They really need to expand the selection; some different sandwiches would be nice. I had sliders, wife a burger and the kid a chicken sandwich. No one raved about the food that night. Good, sliders…. Plain,, . I expected more. Dinner bill $75 for the 3 of us (with beers), and somewhat disappointing.
Day two, we looked at our options. All you can eat bar ($18, (never tried it) but looked REALLY good, the pronto, a small uninviting hole, where they served dogs and “quick snack” (never tried it and don’t want to), or back to the legend. There were no other options because no one wanted a big meal, so we returned to the Legends. Well we wanted to watch a game anyway, so off we went.
My son and I had the burrito and the wife had the turkey rollup. We were all much more pleased with the food. Maybe it was a bad nigh last night. Still, there is a short selection and too expensive for the size and the caliber of food severed.
Drinks are pretty expensive. $16 for a pitcher with a upside-down cup glued the bottom of the pitcher just to rob you of one more beer. Sorry Caesars’ that is slap in the face, looks cool, but a slap. I suppose they claim it to be a oversize pitcher, whatever…….
Sleep; Thankfully, I heard no activity in the hallways, or thru the walls, which is always a blessing. I am somewhat picky about the comfort of the bed, I have hip issues, and a hard bed is a bad sleep. The bed, while not a Feathertop, but was very comfortable. Both my wife and I slept soundly, even on the first night, that is somewhat unusual.
Around the complex are mostly houses and apartment buildings. Strange for a Casino that has been there so long. The few business we drove past, a few blocks away, scared us. They looked very run down, closed up, not inviting, just plain sad. Maybe, because it was January and the weather is so cold? I don’t know. I am sure Detroit’s Casinos’ have put a large hole in Windsor pocket. Greek town does look more inviting, even in the dead of winter. Especially because of the choices of restaurants and shops to look at right across the street. Sorry Caesars.
Don’t let that stop you from coming. Nice quick getaway. All in all, a great couple of days even for a non gambler, nice, clean facilities, great service, not what I would call cheap, but for a all-in-one, close-to-home, it made for a nice get away.
