Stayed at Harrahs Las Vegas for nearby convention. Here is a random rundown.
Dated but nice enough hotel. Stayed in Luxury room in Carnival tower. Room was clean and well maintained. Room was billed as strip view. You do see some of the strip, but not much. Everything worked in room. Safe in room was nice.
Check-in took about 30 minutes, but staff very nice.
Only ate a bufett a few times and was pleased with food and service.
Casino floor is very dull and out-dated. Very poor variety of slots.
It seems every casino, including Harrahs has removed all nickel keno machines. A real shame!
Slots very very very tight. A twenty will not even get your seat warm. Most twenties put into slots lasted about 4 minutes and several time gone within 45 seconds. And that is Not at max bet. I guess a hundred is the new twenty. So if you are thinking of a night of slot play, bring a large bundle of cash. None of the other strip casinos any better.
Note: ATM transactions cost 5.99. But right next door at Casino Royal it is a buck. But it smells like poop over there.
One should be aware of the fact that the sidewalks in front of Harrahs, Flamingo and Casino Royal are creepy pimp central. Be perpared to be harrassed by these jerks at all times. They have become much more aggressive. Why Vegas puts up with this obvious promotion of protitution I don't know. It is ruining the strip.
Take the Harrahs shuttle to and from airport. I chose Bell something or another and was treated to a one hour tour of darn near every casino in Vegas dropping of customers. Harrahs shuttle is a direct shot and about the same price of $7 one way.
Would I stay here again? Maybe, if on business. But not for a nice vacation. Too dated and boring. Pimps out front are gross. Weirdos everywhere. One young kid with his buddies in tow was offering anyone to kick him in the nuts for $20. Sadly he got more than a few takers.
Real down and outers are sad, but I, like most people work very hard for a little relaxation time. Just not worth it to watch all the nut cases and pimps everytime exiting the Casino.
So casino bosses, I have some advice. Bring back the Nickel Keno machines and loosen up the slots a bit. You are going to get all my money anyway. Why not add a bit of fun to the gambling.
