If you are a smoker and don't mind bird feces you can disregard this review. We stayed here over New Years for 4 days. The room was adequate and the housekeeping staff was competent and practically invisible, which is what I like in a maid service. However, every room has a balcony overlooking the Colorado River, which is nice, but there was so much bird feces on it we could not bring ourselves to use it. Visits to our traveling companion's rooms revealed identical conditions. It seems like they never clean the balconies. Additionally, the hallways, which are exposed to the outdoors, are rarely swept. In the 4 days we were there the same pile of debris remained outside our room. Upon arrival, we pulled into the "registration" lane at the casino entrance. I left my wife in the car and proceeded to the front desk. Before I could get to the door I was accosted by a valet parking attendant who demanded my keys, "in case they need to move my car". There was only one clerk at check in so that took an inordinate amount of time. Luggage trolleys are for the use of staff only so if you want to haul your gear to your room on your own you will make several trips. We let the staff take ours and the bell boy was very nice and helpful. The entire casino is a smoker's paradise. There are no non-smoking areas outside the 2 restaurants. Drink are served in plastic cups, and I mean all drinks. A martini is just not the same from a plastic cup. The huge big screen TV in the main bar area is awesome, but 1 day prior to the last regular season football game no one could tell me what game would be shown the next day. Turned out not to matter because the bar was full and practically everyone was smoking. The River Willow restaurant was quite nice. We had reservations for 10 and only 6 showed, but the staff allowed us to remain at the larger table in case anyone showed up late. Food was excellent, service very good. The brunch in the café is another story. Heinous and cost $15 (senior rate). To be avoided at all costs. I've been to many casinos, and this one is definitely the worst I've seen. We won't be back.
