My second trip to the US this year and stayed at the Rio for a trade show. If you're travalling from Australia, please be aware that they do not allow check in before 4pm. So after flights from Oz to LA then to Vegas, you will be tired, cranky and forced to sit around for a few hours before getting a room. I would suggest checking your bags and heading to the spa in the Hotel. Excellent facilities and you can relax with steam room, jacuzzi, TV, waiting room, get a massage, have a shower and freshen up - and that's on the men's side! Otherwise, book an extra night before you arrive (it's cheap!) and tell them you want the room when you arrive.
I upgraded into the Masquerade Tower with a view of the Strip. Definately a dated room but it was large, had a lounge, big TV etc and was more than adequate. At $13.95 per day for wi fi, it's steep and I had to ring tech support to be connected manually, but once on it worked well. For 5 nights including the upgrade, wi fi, big room, a couple of movies the total was an absolute bargain at $650 compared to Australia. Do yourself a favour and get a Total Rewards Card on arrival and save on everything. Eat at the Sao Paulo cafe for breaky and if you get a hamburger, tell them you want it 'well done' as many times as you can!
I found the staff sensational, though don't forget to tip and be generous. $5 per day for the cleaner, 20-25% on food, and the cab drivers, door men, bell desk and $1 per drink if on the slots. If you want data on your phone, cab it up the road to Fry's Electrical and get a Simple Sim card. If your phone is unlocked, they will activate the sim on the store and you have a US number and roaming data for nix.
