The whole Emperor's palace (4 different hotels plus casino) gives the impression that no money has been spared on making it tacky, from the stylised paintings, to the roman chariot statue in the huge ornamental pool. The rooms are typical, comfortable hotel rooms as seen the world over. The bed is comfortable, bathroom is fine, the TV works etc, but there is nothing special. The casino is probably the tackiest I've seen anywhere, comprising almost exclusively slot machines in sterile rooms of lights. The staff were attentive but not overly interested. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant because it was busy with a large group and were advised that there might be a wait for food, so we wandered through the casino to the food market area. This is set up like a series of buildings fronting a walking street. They have painted the ceiling with a pattern of blue sky and clouds so that the initial impression is that you are outdoors on a sunny day. Like most of the decor though, even a slightly closer inspection reinforces the feeling of tacky. Breakfast in the main restaurant next morning was good, with a fine view over a garden with pool/fountain and nobody out there. It is suitable for a safe bed in Jo'burg overnight but I wouldn't stay too long.
