Highly recommend it for all the reasons in previous reviews (location, huge rooms, no smoke, no resort fees, free wifi, friendly staff). Always saw check-in lineups at other strip hotels, but not here. Check-in a breeze (Valarie was awesome) check out literally took 10 seconds.
Had breakfast in room each day. Truly enjoyed easy pace of the morning, not having to find/use a restaurant. Did not use restaurant or valet, but others seemed to enjoy it. Valets were always there to open door for you and say hello.
The walk to the back of Bally's is quick and safe, then you are in the heart if the strip. A suggestion to the management, offer a free shuttle to the front of Bally's, that would be awesomeness. We are young and had no trouble with the walk, but after doing the strip for hours, walking miles in sandals, it would have been a real treat.
Complaints? They are few and really didn't affect our stay as we are pretty easy going. Had to call for face cloths one day, hot tub at pool wasn't working for a 24 hour period, but quickly fixed when mentioned, pool loungers are quite dirty. I paid extra for a strip view, but wouldn't waste my money next time. As the west facing balconies are in the sun most of the day, it is simply too hot to stay on them, and you have to keep the heavy curtains closed to keep the heat of the sun out of the rooms. On our next stay (and we will stay here again unless I win the lottery and go for the Bellagio) we will ask for mountain view. The only bad rooms are low on the north side as it overlooks a power station right across the street and gets the most street noise.
Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it is not the Bellagio, Mandarin, or Venetian, but then you can't rent a bathroom there for the price I paid at The Platinum for a huge one bedroom. More than worth the money for everyday travelers. And the wonderful staff make you feel worth a million bucks.
