Before we even got to the room, there was some confusion about a deposit. We had to put a $200 dollar deposit down on a room that I had already booked and paid in advance for. And since I was paying for the room in cash, I had to fork over another 200 out of my spending money. Secondly, the cigarrette smoke in the place was so over powering that I could smell it 6 floors up. My allergies flared up immediately as a result, and I spent my entire vacation couped up in my room sick, sneezing, with a stuffed up head, nose, and ears and spent 65 dollars on allergy and pain medicine in their gift shop which was over the top expensive. Like 10 bucks for 5 ibuprophen expensive. When I complained about it, they sent an air purifier to my room (which was not where the smoke problem was) and kicked me out of it for an hour. So after spending an hour back in the smokey environement, I was allowed back in the now "smoke free" room to spend the rest of the trip knocked out on Benedryl. Oh and thanks Rio for the extrememly painful flight home. I also appreciated the quoting of Las Vegas laws about smoking on the casino floor by your staff. I am certain it applied to the guy I saw smoking in the elevator, and the girls smoking in the hallway of my floor, and the partiers that smoked, and drank and howled till 4 a.m. across the hall from me. In short, I spent $2k for 72 hrs. in Vegas, and spent 68 hrs. in my room because 1) The Rio cannot seem to enforce the no smoking areas, 2) they do not have adequate air filtering systems to keep up with the level of second hand smoke in the building.
The hotel sits off the strip, so if you want to go anywhere you have to take a cab. At least $20 a trip to go anywhere on the strip.
If you don't want to pay $20 to go eat on the strip, you have to either spend $30 per person to eat at the buffet, or walk across the street to the Gold Coast and pay $15. Otherwise, you will be eating a lot of Burger King.
I don't recommend this place at all.
