We stayed at the Orleans for 5 nights helping to celebrate my sister in law's birthday. Had a great time at the Orleans. The rooms are huge, and very comfortable. Had a nice view of the strip. The rooms were very clean, and smelled nice. The air conditioning was FANTASTIC!!! It nearly froze us out, and for me, it is usually hard to get a room cool enough. We were at the end of the hall, far away from the elevators, and it was very quiet. The shower had HOT water, and the pressure was great.
We found plenty to do while there. Two of the days, we never even left the Orleans. We enjoyed the movie theatre, and the arcade. The casino was nice, not to crowded, and certainly not too smoky. We were pretty lucky with the slots there, especially the first couple of days. The luck ran out towards the end. Oh well...Went and checked out the pool, but it was a cool autum day with the wind blowing, so too cold outside to stay, but the pool area was very nice! The bowling alley looked fun, but didn't get time to try it out! Next time.
We ate at the Orleans on several occasions. Good variety, and certainly plenty of choices that didn't break the bank! The breakfast buffet was great, and cheap! We had the Friday night seafood buffet, which was fantastic, and also the Sunday brunch. Lots of food choices, and not nearly as pricy as most of the strip hotels. Many dessert choices, and even a gelato bar included with the buffet price!! Also hit the food court, and had Baskin Robbins every night!!
Overall, a great value! The shuttle that runs to the strip is great...never waited more than 10 minutes to catch it, and a couple of the drivers were really nice. Would definately stay here again!!
