Stayed here February 5 - 14, 2013. Booked through Hotwire. I wasn't too excited about having the casino on site due to the clientel it can draw but couldn't change after booking. That really wasn't a problem but the smoking was. You have to walk from one end of the casino to the other when you are coming and going from the hotel. Maybe early in the morning the smoke wouldn't be too bad but most of the time it was. The lounge and two of the restaurants are right in the casino...we never used them. The 24 hour restaurant and the coffee bar are downstairs and you can still smell the smoke. Fortunately the hotel is smoke free and they have managed to keep the smoke out. The Orange Sky restaurant and 270 degree lounge on the 15 th floor of the hotel are very nice, a great view and smoke free. The pool area is great! The food we did eat at the hotel was very good and reasonably priced. We found the service to be very good contrary to some of the other reviews. The hotel rooms are some of the best we've stayed in.
They do have one large room that is non smoking for gambling. I would recommend they make that the smoking area and the rest of the area non smoking.
If smoke doesn't bother you I'd recommend staying there but if it does I'd find another place to stay.
