“Nothing Special--how is this a 4 star hotel?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

The staff seemed nice, but this hotel was full of people you wouldn't expect to run into at a supposeldy 3.5-4 star hotel. I guess the casino next door attracts some interesting people. The room was fine, although the furniture in the suite had some stains and was kind of gross. The lighted mirror in the bathroom didn't work, the remote to the tv in the suite didn't work, and the safe was locked and couldn't be opened. I am a pretty easy going traveler, and it doesn't take much to make me happy, I just don't understand how the travel site i booked my car and hotel through had this as a 4 star hotel. It is more like a 3 star at best, and I would probably try to stay somewhere else next time. Pretty good value though overall, it used to be an Embassy Suites and I remember staying there about 20 years ago as a kid, it was much newer and cleaner then.

Room Tip: Arch or Review views are the best, higher the floor the better.

Had I seen the reviews ahead I may not have stayed. Front desk were friendly at check in. Rooms were suites . Beds were clean and comfortable. Baths were a little small. We were attending an event at the Jones Dome so we could walk indoors most of the way there. Convenient. We would stay again.

We were greeted by friendly staff. Our room is a great size, 2 rooms. Then we walked over to the casino. We had a great time and a fun way to stretch your legs after a long car ride. I will stay here again!

We enjoy staying at the Lumiere hotel. Recently stayed December 29. Bed is always comfortable, with clean and spacious rooms. Nice to have a separate room to watch tv with a couch, table, and mini bar. Bathrooms are standard hotel bathrooms. Very convenient to use the walkway to the casino. Casino offers large amount of table games and slots. Would love to see it go smoke free someday though. Hotel staff seemed friendly enough. Was able to snag a great price $75. I know sometimes the Lumiere can be proud and pricey on certain weekends. My only complaint is that it is free to park if you are just going to play at the casino, however, you are charged $10 to park if you are staying at the hotel. Many times you have to use the same lot???? We will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for Arch view.

I've stayed at Lumiere over the past three years and have seen a steadfy decline in the rooms appearance. The Casino is SMOKY and not very clean. There have been robberies on property leaving an unsafe feeling,also breakins of vehicles.
Go to a different property.

Room Tip: Don't stay on weekends

Checked in on a Thursday for one night. We were checked in by Lisa who was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The bed and linens were the best I've ever slept on in a hotel. The hotel is connected to the casino via a walkway. I'm not a gambler,but gave the slots a try and came out $17 ahead. The casino was nice. Like most they allow smoking so I didn't play the slots long. I took my big $17 win and got a $10 margarita at the Burger Bar. The drink was just ok. The sweet potato fries were delicious.
Great place would definately stay here again.

Stayed one night. Hotel was nice, rate was good. The casino had the tightest slots I've ever encountered. However, it is near some fun/funky bars.
