I stayed at GVR for a week long business conference. The front desk staff was nice. The conference room was very adequate for our needs & the catering staff was very oriented to our every need. They did a phenomenal job.
I do agree with another reviewer that it is like a maze. I did not go anywhere without my hotel provided map. The directions to the fitness area were not good (entrance to gym is hidden on back side) so I was a bit frustrated to be looking for it in the cold windy night (no signage--at least not at 6pm in the winter darkness).
I ate at ??cafe just off the floor of the casino coming from the West Tower. I had breakfast there twice & it was great. The fruit platter is amazing - very fresh & a lot of it. You won't leave hungry.
I ate my dinners outside of the resort at the shopping plaza just outside their doors. PF Changs, Cheesecake Factory. The retail shoppes stayed open til 9 which is nice, and it was a very safe area to walk & be out at night.
When I checked into my non-smoking room as soon as I walked into the room it smelled like smoke. I called the frontdesk & they immediately changed me into another room & the bellhop brought the new keycards to me which was nice that I didn't have to lug my luggage back down to the lobby.
I only have 2 criticisms and the first one is something that I expected so I don't hold it against them.
1) The casino floor was sooooo smoky. All my clothes wreaked of smoke not because I sat in the casino, but only because I had to walk thru the casino area in order to get to my conference room. That's pretty bad. A huge resort like that should have invested in an air purifying system knowing that people smoke at casinos. They lost getting more of my $$ because I would have played casino games if it wouldn't have been sooo smoky. Like I said- I expected smoke, but it was real bad & a company like this can invest money into a better solution for everyone.
2) When I arrived home a week later I checked my credit card bill online & saw an additional charge from GVR for almost $20. I called them to inquire what it was about. A day later GVR called & said the charge was for 1 water, 1 OJ & 1 package of smoky almonds from the mini-bar. Problem is I did not use the minibar at all. GVR did reverse the charge, but it makes me wonder how many people get charged without knowing it. My complaint is 2-fold:
1) GVR never emailed me a bill for this additional charge. They had my email since they sent me the rooms charges via email so why didn't they send a bill for this separate charge.
2) They need to come up with a better system for minibar charges and/or access. I didn't have a need for the mini-bar so I didn't use it. Lock it up & give a keycard for it if they are going to start charging people when they didn't really use it. Or maybe the maid is having a nice snack at the expense of the guest who just checked out.
All in all I would stay there again.
