We stayed in the East Tower over Memorial Day Weekend for a Bachelorette Party. Here is a list of postives/negatives about the stay. We had two rooms with two Queen beds in both. This would be a great hotel for a business traveler or someone looking for a Vegas experience on a budget.
Rates were great especially over a holiday weekend.
Very efficient check-in.
Mini-fridge in our room!
Great location - only one block from the Fremont Experience.
Several food options in the hotel that are reasonably priced and tasty.
Rooms are nicely decorated.
Pretty quiet for being so close to the Fremont Street.
We had a non-smoking room and it smelled like a non-smoking room.
Room was clean. Even though we had a low rate, I didn't feel like I was jeopardizing our health to stay here. Bathroom could have been a little more thoroughly scrubbed but it was average.
There were a nice variety of slot machines and table games.
Valet was full every day we were there even for hotel guests. Self-parking was available.
We were able to get into one of our rooms to put luggage but when we tried again, the key didn't work. The problem was the key mechanism. It took them nearly two hours to repair it. There was only one maintenance worker.
We requested adjoining rooms (two phone calls before the trip and again at the counter) and this could not be accomodated. We were told this was only possible if we were willing to be in a smoking room.
Lack of outlets! The outlet by the bed required us to pull the bed out to get to the outlet. This sucks if you have a CPAP or other device you need to sleep.
The rooms are pretty small - we had three people in our room and it felt like we were tripping over each other and our luggage. The closet space is very small and you only get two drawers.
Only two pillows per bed - we called and asked for more and they told us they had "run out."
Only two towels per room - but they responded quickly to our request for more towels.
The air conditioning/heating unit was ineffective and very noisy. It was hard to keep the room from being too cold or too hot.
The pool experience was very disappointing. I knew it wasn't going to be like the pools at Mandalay Bay but expected a little more. It is not on the "true" roof top but rather floor 13. The pool is very, very, very small. It felt very crowded and noisy with all the kids that were there.
We got there at about noon on a Sunday and took the last of the towels. It took the hotel staff nearly 2 hours to replenish them.
The pool is not heated - the temperature felt like you were sitting in an ice bucket.
There was inadequate patio furniture. Several of the the chaise lounges were broken.
Beds were very soft and in need of replacement.
