Had a bit of a two headed experience here! We booked in for one night for the end of a two week trip to Canada, and had one of the executive rooms. That was fantastic - very comfy bed, nice bath/shower etc. Ate at the more upmarket restaurent, which, whilst pricey, was a lovely meal, and the staff were all friendly and efficient.
However, having walked through the casino side on the way in, it all felt a little depressing. Having never been to any sort of casino before, I wasn't quite sure what to expect - and seeing lots of miserable looking gamblers was a bit off-putting. Also, you are VERY observed whilst at the hotel - cameras everywhere.
The other down side was the fact that there is renovation work going on at the moment, which means there are some areas and views which will be much improved when the works are completed.
Finally, what's the score with breakfast in this place - we couldn't find a decent place to have our breakfast meal before our flight - the only place open was the fast food type place in the casino area - not very nice to have to eat there when there are the 'hard core' gamblers feeding the machines adjacent to the dining area!
