First the problems:
1) The elevators were often out of service--sometimes all three of them--requiring guests to walk up as many as 11 flights of stairs, sometimes carrying luggage. The management managed to restore one of the elevators quickly, but it's not unlikely that the problem could recur--apparently due to a lack of parts.
2) There are relatively few non-smoking rooms--perhaps based on the assumption that most users of the casino are smokers. I had reserved a non-smoking room, but was told that none were available when I arrived. However, the management very quickly gave the room an ozone cleaning, which did help considerably.
3) The walls are thin. I could hear everything going on in the room next door.
Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay. There are gorgeous views of the area from the upper floors. The epic buffet is quite splendid, and it's half price on Wednesdays for anyone over 50. The staff was always courteous.
