Stayed there for a few nights and was really looking forward to it based on reviews and pictures seen.
After the stay, I must admit I was rather disappointed.
The check-in queue, if massive, was ok in fact. Though the welcome from the lady at the counter was far from friendly.
The room was clean, large enough but less fitted than some lower standard ones. Not to mention paying 7$ for 1 liter of water... .
Well, then, moving on, the casino is definitely the central part there and if the staff is eager to help they do not seem very knowledgeable. I was looking for some blackjack tables with specific limits and the staff I asked could not give me a clear answer.
Note that the overall place is open to smoking. Can be a bit of a shock when coming from Europe where it is strictly forbidden to smoke in public places.
I recommend the bar (Whiskey Down) in the casino with quality service, nice drinks and a great atmosphere (if leaving sports TVs aside).
Now, the hotel definitely lacks when it comes to the "fitness room". I went there and apart from a few treadmills, bikes, ... this does really not even look like a gym. And the size of it does not match the size of the hotel at all, even if I assume people rather come to get trashed than do some sport.
And my biggest bug over the stay was the awful amount - and level - of noise. Noise from inside the hotel where people seem not to have a clue how to behave and from outside too. I had a room on 8th floor, facing the main entrance and could just hear every bit of noise at every hour of the day... and night mainly.
Amazingly enough it does seem that even if in Vegas (where people are bound to be noisy) this hotel has not heard of double glazing or proper doors.
I got a discount for it but still had to go through these noisy nights anyway.
In the end, as mentioned, this hotel delivers when it comes to hype but not so much as far as quality is concerned.
