We decided on a one nighter for a Thursday night. We had friends that arrived the night before and met up with them.
The room was fabulous as usual. We were on the 10th floor (top) with two queens. Our view was of the top of the hotel parking garage. The beds were cozy comfy and the bathroom was beyond average. There is separate tub and a shower. I love having bubble baths at this property!
Thursday, we dined at the food court. The french dip I got was huge and I was only able to eat half. My husband liked his pastrami sammich. Friday, we had lunch/brunch at the buffet. This is one of my husband's favorite buffets. They serve Kilbaska and Hotdogs! It doesn't get any better than that as far as he is concerned. I, however, had the baron of beef (beautifully rare) and oysters, and shrimp and lots of other goodies.
The casino floor was fun, but of course, no big wins to speak of. :)
We will be back. It is a toss up between Pala and Harrah's Rincon - we like both, but we'll go to the place that gives us better room rates.
