Very nice, clean, large rooms. Mine had a king size bed, couch, desk and an LCD TV. The restaurants are excellent - great food, good sized portions and decent prices. The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout. The casino is a good size, a lot of cheap tables and a decent poker room. Only downside is that the casino doesn't run 24 hours.
The big problem with this hotel is that it's in an isolated, desolate, industrial part of the city. It cost me $50 in cab fare to arrive from the airport and my driver got lost!! My cab fare into downtown and back cost me $70!! Luckily, the staff put me in touch with a shuttle van service for the return trip, which saved me $20. There's absolutely NOTHING for miles around as far as restaurants, shopping, or walking/running trails are concerned. In fact, the hotel rooms have bar fridges in them (a great idea), but there isn't even a convenience store, let alone a beer store or liquor store within walking distance to stock it! Your only option as far as refreshments go is the pop machine down the hall, as there's no gift shop in the hotel. I would certainly consider going back, however, knowing what I now know, I'll rent a car while I'm there.
Overall, it's just shy of a four star experience.
