Near the top of my list -
Just checked out. It's slow out here this week and the rates were good at the Rio so I tried it. I come out here every week to work, so I've been at several of the hotels out here. I thought the Rio was a great hotel with nice views, pleasant staff, and very large, well decorated huge rooms with king bed, wall to wall floor to cieling windows, large sectional sofa, marble and glass coffee table, seperate closet area, two sinks, fridge, safe.
I visited the Voodoo lounge at about 12:30 am on a Tuesday night and the place was pretty lively which is more than I can say for club Ra at Luxor. The bartender (Kenny) introduced me to a 60 year old Tequila (rare out here) that really impressed me. Did not have time this trip for any of the restaurants but trusted that they would be what I expected.
To cold for the pool, and the one down side of the place is that the exercise room is connected to the Spa which they want $20/day (each person) - that's what lost them the final star on my rating.
Overall, I really liked the place and when I get a chance I will check in again, but the workout charge will keep me from making it a regular stay.
The casino wasn't nearly as noisey or smokey as many I've had to walk through. I seldom gamble so that's all I can say. If you get a premium room (strip view) try to get above the 20th floor (or at either end of the hallway or you may have the big RIO neon sign to look at. It's not distracting at all when you're awake, but I had to close the curtains before trying to sleep. Still, it was a great view.
You'll need a taxi or the shuttle to get back and forth to the strip, it's not far, but I wouldn't walk it.
If you like blues, Rio is only about a mile from the Sandollar Lounge - in my opinion, Vegas' best blues bar. I was there Monday night for their open Jam session (a very unique experience). Got really good after midnight. Be aware though that the Sandollar is not a general tourist oriented bar, it's a local place with some of everybody there, bikers, old, young, etc - It was a nice mix of people. I was there in a suit and was comfortable - the show was great, the drinks were cheap.
Rio is a very cool place, but they gotta kill the workout charge.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
