For the price paid, it really is a pretty nice place to stay where you're centrally located right in the heart of the strip. I don't neccesarily agree with the "Resort Fee" they charge each night however. But apparently most of the hotels charge this fee now. I'm not exactly sure what I got for this added fee. I was under the impression that free wireless internet was included with this but there was no wireless available at all. Before my stay, I had read some reviews that stated upon check-in, the "reserved room" was not available. This indeed happenned to me as well. I had reserved a smoking king superior strip view room (an upgrade from standard). At check-in, I was advised that my room type was not available at which point she attempted to talk me into a two bed smoking room that "may" be available. Am I wrong or doesn't a "reservation" mean that whatever you reserve should be "reserved" for you and be available at check-in? I stated I didn't really want a two bed room which is why I didn't reserve same. She then said she could put me in a "Premium" room which was non smoking but had a balcony I could smoke on. I asked if this was at least of similar quality of the upgraded room I had reserved. She then asked....well what type of room did you reserve? I'm like...really?? Shouldn't you have that information on your computer? I told her what type of room I reserved and she looked puzzled. I then showed her my reservation at which point she said, well the premium rooms are an "upgrade" from what I originally reserved. I said fine, I'll take it. Although the room was nice and well appointed, I really have no idea if it was indeed an "upgrade" as she stated. The "strip view" consisted of looking directly across at the Quad (formerly Imperial Palace) which was not asthetically pleasing to the eye. The balcony (about 12" deep) overlooked the pool area, which in January was not in use. While looking to my left, I saw what appeared to be a "newer" tower section of the hotel, meaning I was in the "older" tower. This also made me wonder if the suppossed "upgrade" I received was indeed an upgrade at all. Getting back to the room, it was nicely furnished with fairly large flat screen TV as well as a smaller TV in the bathroom which was nice. Although the room had many updated furnishings, you could tell the hotel itself has been there awhile. The tub area was older and worn. The bathroom had two (probably 40 watt bulbs) in the fixtures which made it very dark and gloomy looking. The bed was of high quality and very comfortable. Upon returning to my room late on the first night, I turned on the TV to find sound but no picture. I called down and they sent up a technician relatively quickly. He stated the system they have has a tendancy to "reset" itself every so aften. He spent about 30 seconds working his magic in back of the TV and presto, I had a picture. I should mention he was very nice and professional which I found impressive. On the last night of my stay (again returning late at night), I once again turned on the TV to find no picture. It was late, I was tired and didn't feel like calling down again so I turned it off. House cleaning staff appeared to do a good job although a cleaning rag was left in the room one day. As I mentioned before, the hotel has been there awhile but most areas have been updated nicely. The elevators are old and showing their age but did the job. The staff were generally friendly and courteous. The casino area was very adequate in size and selection. I actually had the best "luck" at the slots at Harrahs compared to some of the other casinos in the immediate area. Overall I had a nice stay and would probably stay here again. Just remember that you aren't guaranteed the room type you reserve and be prepared to insist on at least a comparable or upgraded alternative room.
