After seeing advertisements for the newly renovated Plaza Hotel & Casino, I decided to give it a try for the final 2 nights of our trip (keep in mind I originally wanted to stay at the Rush Towers at the Golden Nugget).
We drove our rental car to the parkade, it is old and the ceilings are super low (I saw a few trucks that just barely made it in) but it served its purpose. We came back a few times when it was dark and I was not scared to walk in the parkade. The older elevators are a bit slow but we only used them when we first arrived and when we were leaving for the airport.
The perfume smell in the Casino is quite overwhelming, but places like Tropicana and Mandalay Bay were awful as well. The casino was very quiet during the entire weekend, Players Club staff were friendly and they had a great variety of slot machines and table games.
Check in was very fast. The front desk clerk was really friendly and personable. We were placed in the non-smoking tower (at least that is what we were told and during our stay there was no reason I had to think otherwise) in a room overlooking the start to Fremont Street. Yes, you can hear the commotion from the Fremont Street Experience, but it subsides by about 1am. So if you go to bed early I would suggest you ask for a room that does not over look Fremont.
The room itself is huge. There was so much space in our King Sized- Non Smoking Room. The furniture, bedding, carpet and other fixtures are all brand new. I had no issues with turning the bedside lamps on and off. They were plugged into the wall and the lamps had a switch on the side. The only plug in issue was at the desk/TV console, where I had to get on my hands and knees and unplug the lamp to plug in my laptop. A minor inconvenience in my opinion.
The bathroom area with the toilet and bathtub/shower is small, no doubt. But it was clean with good water pressure in the shower. Mind you our shower head was low even for me who is 5'6. The sink area is small but had enough room for our toiletries. The lighting did not bother me at all.
The only issue I had was that though the furnishings are new, the insulation and thickness of the doors are not. You can still hear everything in the room next door. Unfortunately I was awoken both nights by a couple who seemed to be having a really good time. *wink*.
If the Golden Nugget Rush Towers were full, I would stay here again. It is a great deal.
