Let me start by saying I have stayed at the other "casino" hotels. Both MGM and Motor city have absolutely beautiful rooms. What I think gives the Antheneum hotel a little extra something is the fact that you can get a beautiful Suite (not just a room) and the location is perfect.
The rooms are HUGE. Other reviewers are talking about dated rooms; I really have no idea where they were staying. Our room looked just like the picture. Kind of 60's modern (I think 60's-before my time). The hotel lounge was quiet and reasonably priced. They had great entertainment at Fishbones. The staff in the hotel, lounge and restaurant were very friendly, I never had an issue with anything.
The great thing about this hotel, is it is connected to the people mover, so you are not "locked" into the casino your whole trip. You are able to go anywhere in the city, without getting in your car. And if you need transportation the people mover does not provide, they have a courtesy driver for a 5 mile radius. That is outstanding. They are also in the "tourist trap" neighborhood of Greek town. But I enjoy being able to walk outside and go to a bakery or into a small restaurant.
I have another reservation on January 31 for a girl's night out. I am totally looking forward to staying at the Antheneum again. And also showing my friends how many extras you get by staying at the there, compared to the other two casino hotels.
