I was pretty impressed with the whole Eldorado property, especially as compared to a neighboring hotel-casino. There is a welcome polish to the property that made me feel like we had made a good choice staying here nearly as soon as we were in the lobby. The size of the room was surprising, especially the bathroom, with its large tub and separate shower. Bed was comfy and decor was inviting. Only issues were a non-working bathroom fan and the fact that just a single soap was provided. Perhaps we were supposed to chisel the soap into three pieces, one each for the sink, shower and bathtub. There were no instructions to that effect, however.
The food at the casual restaurant on the first floor was serviceable, if unmemorable. The casino has a great filtration system - as compared to that aforementioned neighboring property, I didn't feel like I needed to throw all of my clothes away after spending a few hours in it. It's a bit of a pain to go level to level, as each floor has an ID checkpoint. The tradeoff is a larger footprint for the casino, being that you are, after all, on a boat, though you'd never know that if you weren't told before. In fact, when I was told about gambling "on the boats", I had this romanticized preconceived notion that the boat was actually part of the attraction, that there would be a certain appeal to being on a boat...docked in the river...and that this would be perceptible. Instead, this potential asset is completely cloaked, and the connection to the river is lost. But I digress - I guess most people will probably say I've missed the main point of going to a casino in the first place. All in all, this is an attractive, appealing place to stay if you find yourself in S'port.
