I just returned from my first visit to ST in a couple years. The suite I stated in this time was different than the mini-suite I had in the past. I'd recommend it for anyone who wants to splurge a bit without paying anything close to the prices you'd find on the Strip.
Really, I've seen smaller apartments. Kitchenette, full living room,. dining room table, bedroom with Jacuzzi, stall shower, toilet and separate bidet. Both the living room and bedroom has a nice size flat screen TV. The room overlooks the Mystic Falls show, which is always nice but gets old after a while.
Housekeeping was very accommodating (do tip them a few bucks on a daily basis...you really don't want their job!)
Complaints were minimal: the pillows were hard and the towels had a burnt smell to them. I imagine you'll have the same issues in the regular rooms as well.
Outside the scope of the room review, I had comps for all the restaurants (and the room itself) and tried three: Billy Bob's, Willy and Jose's, and TGI Fridays. I think the food quality went downhill at the first two since my last stay. The steak at Billy Bob's was dry. No better than what I'd have at Outback or Texas Roadhouse. The Mex food at W&J's was mediocre (though the Margaritas were excellent.) Rent a car if you stay out here; there are other good options for dinner within a reasonable drive.
Casino tends to be smoky when crowded but the staff is extremely friendly at the tables. They'll know your name after you play once or twice. They really made my visit special (no, I didn't win, unfortunately!)
