“Favorite place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We have stayed at the Ameristar since it opened its hotel doors. Being greeted by the friendly valets, to the most helpful checkin personnel, to the beauty of the fantastic rooms. From the high ceilings, large windows, breathtaking scenic views, comfortable furniture, comfortable beds and linens to the large, large bathrooms with separate walkin shower, soaker tub, dual sinks in granite counter tops, large soft towels, to the separate toilet area. Casino area is nicely laid out and not crowded. Deli and the breakfast restaurant are very good. The roof top swimming pool and spa are so impressive. All of the staff, from housekeeping on up throughout the entire facility are so friendly and helpful. I have always made my reservations by phone and the person on the other end of the phone has always gone out of their way to get my reservation done my way. We like the location of the Ameristar as it is central and an easy walk up or down the hill. Will we stay again, most definitely. As we are senior citizens it is our little vacation once a month. We are card holders so usually get comp for our room and on occasion received a free room, which we feel pretty special. If you can swing one of their suites financially, go for it. It will be an experience you will never forget.

Room Tip: As you are high above the street, you do not hear road noise, but if you ask for a high level, stree...

Stunning, spacious, eat off the floor clean, everyone in every aspect is as gracious as can be. Couldn't ask for more.
Forget your toothbrush? No problem, 24/7 a toothbrush (and toothpaste) will be provided for you.
The beds...oh my...are a "dream come true", you'll just have to experience it yourself. The pillows...I'm getting sleepy just thinkin' about them. Wish I were there right now.
Most hotel rooms I don't dare walk around barefoot in. This one I can't wait to kick off my shoes.
The rooms are huge! The view is historical if you take yourself back in time. Take a small pair of binoculars with you for fun. We were on the 31st floor facing town. Spectacular.
The drive is always beautiful, if you didn't know where you were going, it would pleseantly startle you to run into this beautiful little gem of a city, Black Hawk, Colorado.
Don't hesitate on where to stay either. Even if you were not planning on it. AMERISTAR. I promise you won't regret it. And... you'll be back here writing your own review, with pleasure.

Room Tip: We chose a smoking room, you could not tell it was a smoking room when we walked in. Excellent vent...

Love the modern interior! Rooms looks luxuriously and comfy! 34th floor - open hot tub + swimming pool! My most visit place on winter
Food variety are not that impassive though but thats okay
Waiting for next winter to come back! Black Hawk is not for summer spending time though

Best place to stay and play in Blackhawk. Great entertainment. Great drinks. Great gambling. Comfy beds to rest in, so you can enjoy yourself and not have to worry about driving home. The Staff is amazing, don't forget to ask for a robe to brought up to your room. Makes the walk from the pool and hottub back to your room warmer. The buffet is always good and if you play it won't cost as much. The snack bar gets very busy after the buffet closes, but the cooks work amazingly fast. Food is always hot and fresh. Never had a bad stay, win or loose.

Room Tip: the rooms about half way down the hall from the elevators are the best.

We love to come up to Blackhawk and enjoy staying at Ameristar. There are alot of different room options. The rooms are very spacious. Upscale bathrooms too. We love the pool and spa on the top of the hotel. Free parking too.

Room Tip: I would recommend requesting a room to look over the main street.

I had never been up to Blackhawk and decided to take the family up for a visit while in colorado. The canyon drive up to the area is beautiful. It's surprising when you arrive because there are SO many casinos up there! Free parking is great and the hotel is beautiful. I"m not a smoker so my only issue was that I forgot to request a non-smoking room. It was my fault for not asking for a NS room, but none were available so we had a beautiful, smokey room! Buffet was great, my daughter who is 9 loved it! But this is not really a super kid friendly place. Pool on the top floor has adult hours after 9pm (adults only). We swam in the pool after 10 and it didn't get crazy at all, but i'm sure it could! Overall, georgeous rooms, classy hotel, friendly staff, kind of smokey. enjoy.

We arrived to Black Hawk, found our Hotel very quickly, great signage. Parked in the free parking garage and headed to the Hotel to check in. Everything was in order, hotel clerk very pleasant, 5 min. later heading up to 21st floor. Had a great view of the town, stayed in 2123 facing the main street. Room very spacious and clean. Had a hidden fridge which we needed for snacks and drinks for our teenagers. Went immediately for a swim in their large roof top, indoor pool. Amazing scenery as we swam. Pool towels provided. Indoor and out-door Jacuzzi's. Best mountain views while swimming away the travel tension's of the day. Next stop after swimming, the hotel buffet, reasonable prices on Sunday evening. Lots to choose from, loved the Kim chi and the fresh salad bar items. Hot food was also very good. Kids loved the desserts. Then upstairs to stretch out on the nice chair/ottoman. Watch a bit of TV while the teen's got ready for bed. Then husband and I went down to try our luck in the casino. Had a ball with some new slot machines won a bit and over all enjoyed our stay immensely. Breakfast was a bit pricey, however, due to some lady luck, we were able to splurge on it. Waiter was great, staff great, felt refreshed upon leaving, Check out was also quick and easy, On our way to the car within 5 min. of check out. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for the highest room available so you can get a great view of the mountains, rather than the par...
