“A new found favorite”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Along with Bally's, Harrah's is a hotel that we often find comped or deeply discounted. One trip my offer was for Harrah's so I thought I'd try it. I was pleasantly surprised how nice the room was--dark woods, tastefully done. It was a bit small, but fine for a solo traveler. Loved that it had a coffee pot--elusive in Vegas. Even a tiny balcony (well, sort of.) BUT I was overlooking Carnival Court. If you go to bed before 3AM, BE SURE to request a room NOT overlooking Carnival Court as it will keep you up until 3AM! On our latest trip to Vegas, my husband & I asked not to overlook Carnival Court & our request was granted. Quiet as can be. Larger room, neutral decor, similar to Bally's north tower. Not quite as central as Bally's, but still manageable to most of the strip. Currently there is construction nearby for the LINQ project, be sure to ask for rooms on the north side to avoid construction noise.

Room Tip: Ask for north facing rooms for most quiet. Mardi Gras Tower is most convenient to Strip.

So, my experience with Harrah's started before I even arrived at the hotel. As the plane was still taxiing, my work colleague called me, and was very peturbed. I had made the hotel arrangements for the two of us, and he arrived a number of hours before me. They would not let him check in, and he had to wait for me to arrive. This was after a long day of international travel. Needless to say, he was in a jolly angry mood.

When I arrived, I asked why he was not allowed to check in, and because I booked via a 3rd-party website, they said something about security and that these are their rules. I can say that it wasn't particularly clear anywhere that this was the policy. Way to go for sticking to the rules, at the expense of a tired customer!

So, with this atmosphere (us having travelled for hours around the world, only to be annoyed at Harrah's secret policies), the manager decided to upgrade us to a nicer room.

Here was the one highlight (a mediocre one, at that) of the trip. The room was large and newly remodeled. Comfy bed, nice sheets, decent view and a HUGE bathroom. The bathroom must have been easily 200 square feet. Jaccusi bathtub, walk-in shower with dual shower heads, separate room for the toilet, large double-sink, and everything covered in marble. Yes, the floors and walls were all marble. One day I did take a bath in the Jaccusi, and it was refreshing after a long day on my feet.

But, that was the only highlight.

Felt like I was getting nickle-and-dimed. Internet cost $12/day. I made a toll-free phone call (to a 1-800 number), and was charged $1.50 for each <5 minute call. The charge for toll-free calls was not on the phoe. When I asked to have it removed, the woman at the registration counter adamantly refused, and referenced that it was in the guest book (ie these were the rules, even if this information was buried somewhere in there) and that "these were the rules". She was horribly unhelpful. Luckily, the manager was somewhat more customer-oriented and took care of it with a smile.

At the end of the day, it was OK, as long as one didn't have to interact with the front desk. Being there for only 2 days (and being busy outside of the hotel during those 2 days) made it OK.

Next time I'm in Vegas, will look for something else, unless the price is REALLY good (ie <$50/day).

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the renovated Carnival tower.

If you manage your expectations, you will enjoy your stay at Harrah's. What it IS: It's all about LOCATION. Harrah's is an extremely well-located hotel right in the middle of the strip, across the street from Caesar's Palace but much less expensive than the big luxury hotels around it. There's a MacDonald's and a Dennys next door where you can get cheap food - and Wi-Fi! What it is NOT: 1) it is not luxurious. The whole place is a little run-down and our "deluxe" room was OK (clean and comfortable) but looked like an ordinary room in a Comfort Inn. The low ceilings in the lobby area make it look like a renovated parking garage. The decor is a bit garish. 2) While the front desk people were nice (when we finally talked to them after standing in line for 30 minutes), it is not strong on customer experience: long lines at check-in and restaurants, pitch men harassing you in the lobby like carnival barkers to go to some time-share sales pitch. No Wi-Fi in the building (despite what is advertised on online booking sites). If you have a laptop with one of those old phone cable plugs, you can connect in your room for $12 per 24 hours. If you have a smartphone or an iPad, tough luck, you'll have to go to the MacDonald's next door for Wi-Fi. There's a pool but it never seems to be open in the morning (like, at 9 am). Odd. 3) It is not "cheap": it is very reasonably priced *given its location*, but while the weekday prices are cheap, the weekend prices are pretty expensive. If you want cheap, you'll have to go off-strip or to the Freemont area. There are tons of hidden extras at every turn. Check-in is at 4 pm, which seems artificially late, but for $25 you can check in early. Want a flat rate for the right to open the mini bar? $25. Don't want to line up at the buffet restaurant? $8 per person extra for the "express line". You get the idea.
One last thing: you absolutely do NOT want to be pool side of the building if you want to sleep at night. The cacophony of noise from the live shows each night downstairs will drive you batty. BUT if you're a night owl or plan to be out at night anyway, go for it.
Again, if you know all this in advance, you'll enjoy your stay and take advantage of being in the center of everything on the strip. You really can't beat the location.

Room Tip: Pool side is noisy if you plan to sleep at night (some folks don't in Vegas!). Some rooms facing...

This is pretty central location. Loads to do the moment you step out. But that also means loads of weirdos, drunk, dodgy looking people on a crowded street.

The strip is easy to get around with The Deuce (bus service on the strip). So actually location of hotel isn't such a big deal.

Check-in was terrible service. Rude front desk staff, as if everyone owes her a living. We still kept smiling though.

We upgraded the room to Monte Carlo tower. Clean, quiet, some pool view. Although it has been recently renovated, it still feels old. It's ok for us as we spent very little time in the hotel anyway coz there's loads to do.

If I come back to Vegas again, I will choose to stay somewhere else. Even planet Hollywood is good as its just 2 min walk away.

Room Tip: Take the Monte Carlo upgrade.

Location is good... I had visited Harrah's 15 years ago and was treated well, thus the reason I insisted on staying there again. I was so dissapointed.

Tired hotel with rude staff and a sad buffet. We had a newly remodelled room (1203) and it was decent small but clean, the bed was comfortable, however the door lock was broken and never repaired during our stay. Safe and televisions worked fine and towels and bed linens were good.

Mini bar had other peoples partialy consumed food and beverage in the bar. The noise from the night club below, made sleeping impossible until after 3am.

Biggest complaint was the sheer number of DOGS on the gaming floor, elevators and UNBELIEVABLY - IN THE BUFFET, we sat beside a couple that had their dog in the buffet with them, it was in a stroller, but none the less licking at the table! - the buffett is PATHETIC in every way, from stale food to poor/non-existant service.

Reception staff was rude, and the timeshare people unrelentless in their harrassment.

Tired property with a tired staff and it shows, some of the dealers were polite and enthusiastic - cudos to them, cause this place is a ZOO!

Mac King magic/comedy show was good, but the timeshare offer turns in to an upgrade sell.

Perhaps we would stay here again if it was free, but would eat and gamble elsewhere. We were very dissapointed in the Total Rewards comp program - we are medium gamblers average bet $40-$50 each and generally 6-8hrs a day (5 days), we received a total of $30 in discounts off of the buffett for all our play.

Good price at a good location. But can not be too much demanding for the price I had paid so can not expect ammenities or breakfast. But internet wireless should be free. This is basic nowadays at any hotel.
Crowed every day in the lobby.

I read a lot of the reviews on Harrah's and I would have to agree with the majority. This is an older hotel.

On the positive side:
The location is very convenient in the mid-strip. You can walk almost anywhere.
The staff is friendly.
Nice-sized room with working A/C. We had an issue with a slow drain and they fixed it immediately.
Less expensive than nearby hotels and no resort fee.
Shuttle to airport is quick, convenient and inexpensive.

On the negative side:
Check-in is very slow.
We had to ask housekeeping to make up the room 4 of the 5 nights we stayed.
They nickel-and-dime you for everything - Pay a $5 internet fee to use a kiosk to print boarding passes - C'mon Man!

Bottom line if you have average to less-than-average expectations and want a convenient, less expensive hotel on The Strip - this place is for you. If you want a newer hotel with great service go somewhere else.
