We booked a king room via an internet site. When we checked in and the clerk saw that we had used a website for a cheaper rate, his demeanor changed and we were treated as third-class steerage passengers.
No valet at the hotel for the car, no bellman to help with the bags.
The room was very nice and the shower terrific, but all the king rooms are on the north side of the building, which is near a 24-hour railroad crossing. I heard more trains all night long than a bad Johnny Cash marathon. Absolutely no sleep. When we complained to the front desk, they shrugged and said there were no other king rooms. If we wanted another room with double beds, we could move but there would be no refund or comp.
There is little if any insulation between the rooms, so be prepared to hear your neighbors, their TV'S, music, kids, or anything else louder than a whisper.
The spa is understaffed, so unless you make your reservations well in advance they are unwilling to accomodate you.
The casino is small, the bars are lame. The steakhouse is average, at best. The hotel is located so far from anywhere that it's hard to go out to eat or for other entertainment. They keep you prisoner.
I won't be going back.
