Thought this was a good choice ( although far away from the strip ) I would be given a suite. The Rio version of a suite is the same as any other hotel room ( no extra space ).
First it took a full hour to check in; something as simple as a wake up call involved holding and holding while someone assisted. Sometimes holding was not enough; one had to keep calling.
Dirty dishes all over the hallways in the hotel getting to your room.
The toilet was not working ( had to flush several times ). The carpet had brown spots and thoroughly worn. Starbucks $4 ( I pay $2 in Seattle ). Everyone with their hand out for tips including a clerk who checked me in. Although he accepted tips for two rooms, but said the most he could give me was an additional key. He should have returned the tip as there were NO COMPLIMENTARY UPGRADES ( everyone who visits Las Vegas asks for these.
The hotel version of a room with view was overlooking generators of the hotel.
The only good great part of the hotel ( as another kind reviewer posted ) was being across the street from GOLD COAST. Fabulous buffets; $5 foot long sandwiches; TGIF; everyone was winning at the slots. The next time I know better. AVOID AVOID RIO !!More
