We just came back from 3 nights at Harrah's. Upon checking in, we were told that we were being upgraded to the Waterfront tower for free. I have no idea why they did that, but it was a nice surprise. Our room was HUGE, that bathroom was remodeled and really nice with a huge shower, etc. The view was pretty nice as well. Not full waterfront, but nicer than many other rooms we've stayed in at other resorts.
We used valet and always had a pleasant experience with them. It never took more than 2 to 3 minutes to get our car when we needed it (we left the resort every day) so that was very convenient for us.
We really enjoyed the selection of restaurants and bars in the resort as well and we wished we had brought our bathing suits because the pool was so enticing every afternoon.
A few things to note - the room service menu is EXTREMELY overprice. For example, toast or an english muffin is $4. Seriously??
We found it frustrating that there were always a bunch of table games closed in the casino. We enjoy playing roulette but the tables were always over crowded because they didn't have enough open. Also, the minimum was always $10, yet we found $5 roulette tables at Showboat. It would've been nice if they at least had one $5 table open.
They have the convenient system of ordering a drink from a slot machine and they always came relatively quickly. However, they don't have flavored vodka at the service bar, so if you want it, you have to go and buy a drink from the bar.
The mattress was not very comfortable and luckily I had brought my own pillow from home.
We didn't eat at the buffet this time, but we had eaten there a few months ago and it was awful. For some reason though, there was a line to get in every night. I guess a lot of people have comps for the buffet because I'd never pay $25 per person for that food.
The only thing that left a bad taste in my mouth was this - when we checked out, we called the bell desk to have someone come pick up our bags for us from our room. When he came to get them, we tipped him. We then got our car from valet and tipped the guy who brought our car. Then there was another guy who brought our bags to the car. We didn't feel we needed to tip him because we had already tipped the bell hop previously, and we didn't request his services. But he stood at our car window, basically asking for his tip. My husband said "we already tipped the other guy" and he seemed annoyed about that, and continued standing there until we gave him a tip. I just found it extremely rude that he was flat out asking for a tip. I understand that they work for tips, but on the other hand, we didn't request his services and shouldn't be required to tip him. Next time, we will carry our own bags, even if we have 6 of them like we did this time.
