My husband and I stayed here Friday night just as a stopover on the way to somewhere else in Illinois. We arrived at 7:15 and self-parked. Parking is a breeze - our suggestion is to turn left into the parking lot before the hotel. Otherwise, you end up at the front of the hotel and either have to move the car or valet park. Valet is $5 per day - not bad, but it was just as easy to park ourselves.
Check-in was a breeze, no wait and friendly receptionists. We had a luxury room, king bed, non smoking on the 7th floor. Elevators are key access only. Room was nicely furnished with couch, chair, king bed, nice big bathroom w/ separate toilet. Gilbert & Soames amenities.
Ate at the restaurant off the lobby which according to the book in the room was american food. However, after we were seated (our fault for not looking at the menu outside) we realized it was italian. It was so-so and service was a bit strange. Definitely not worth the $85 we paid. Go to the Range steakhouse by the casino for much better food, service & ambiance.
Casino was very smoky (we go to Vegas several times a year and it is NOTHING compared to Harrahs Metopolis). It is also small with old, reject slot machines. We literally walked in and walked out. Never again! It was really rather pathetic seeing the retirement checks being flushed away :(
Overall the hotel is very nice and the service at the front desk and their little shop was outstanding. The beds are wonderful!! Just don't go for the casino.
