After reading all 96 reviews in Trip Advisor for the Rio, we left for a friend's wedding with our fingers crossed and some concern.
There was no need for the concern. The room was spotless, the furniture was in great condition. The front desk staff were great, housekeeping was friendly and professional: they took care of small details that meant alot. There was no problem with the room in terms of any odors, other guest's garbage and hair, etc., as some of the reviews we read had indicated we could expect. All the parts of the Rio I saw were in great shape!
The food at the Carnaval Buffet, the Mexican restaurant and the Japanese/Chinese Restuarant were tasty and the service attentive. The shrimp tempura at Hamada's was incredibly tender - the best I have ever had.
Gambling - I don't, but my husband does. Because we had read the reviews, he headed over to the Gold Coast early on and won -- then returned to the Rio and won twice!! I enjoyed the variety of stores at the Rio. We both enjoyed the free show in the Masquerade area - it passes over your head and is really fun. I read that for a fee, you can be part of this show and we may try it next time.
When you arrive, try to join the Total Rewards program. You get a good coupon book and beads. Remember to have fun!
And remember, what energy you put into something is what you get out of something - so if you expect good, you can find good. And if you don't know what to expect, you can still find good!
My husband also visited Harrahs, and then went to the car exhibit at the Imperial Palace, and just totally enjoyed his adventure.
The friends' wedding took place on the terrace outside the VooDoo Lounge on the 51st Floor of the Rio. We had a view of most of the valley - and were 50 storeys closer to heaven than usual. It was a memorable wedding.
Would we return to the Rio? Yes. But we are more likely to go to Reno - being train buffs we can get to Reno by train from here.
