i will start off with saying i loved the plaza.. The rooms were great and clean, staff very friendly, and lots of security. i will stay thier again.
bed comfortable, toilet in small area with tub so very cramped (but i did not care)
pool area o.k. as it is higher up a little windy but always got sun unlike many others
......loved island sushi, hash house o.k., also has McDonalds and Subway
Honestly however i spent little time in the hotel AS IT IS VEGAS
I wanted to clarify something however....if you have never been to vegas you have to understand fremont is not close to the strip where tourists (mostly first timers, 20 somethings looking for clubs and pool parties, families or the resort crowd) want to be. I have read reviews over the years on all the hotels in vegas as i am a regular (and a 30's male who does not come here with my child for a demographic) .... Many complaints about most hotels can be erased quite quickly with some clarity
-most the hotels on fremont were built pre 70's so the size of rooms , thier design and pools dictate this, the only exception being the gold nugget which i loved staying at as well.
-if you comlain about the smell of SMOKE in your room do NOT go to vegas (or at least stay on fremont) as EVERYONE smokes EVERYWHERE and you will never escape it it will even be on your cloths when you get back to your room..i do not smoke i just know this comes with the territory AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SMOKING DAILY IN THESE FREMONT HOTELS FOR 40 PLUS YEARS..unlike here in canada thier is no stand 20 feet from a doorway or smoking areas,,,,, it is a free for all almost everywhere on fremont
-not the area for kids (unless you just want cheap rooms) as thier is nothing for them to do
-if you get a fremont view room it is beautiful but noisy untill 2 in the morning, i did not go to vegas to sleep or bring my kid so that was fine....it is loud (loved it)
-for people in thier 20's thier are no jersey shore type clubs or massive pool parties down here.....(like you would get at the hard rock or palms) .....as the only pools are at the plaza, california and fitzgeralds (now the D... STUPID NAME BY THE WAY) and are small 70's type pools and the nugget although great with the tank a different vibe.
and in closing..........
-thier are thousands of hotel rooms in some hotels,, line ups will be big at times, reservations will get lost or the room you wanted will be gone. i booked through expedia and wanted a fremont view, not trusting anyone i re-confirmed with the hotel who said i did not have one but it could easily be changed by calling expedia, i did ,,,they called the hotel to change then called me back no problems,, as this was 2 months before thier were plenty of rooms so i got one, as i was at home also no big deal as they called back an hour later,, if i was in vegas i would have been in the lobby for that hour and the room may have been gone, i know to many people who have had problems like this so do re-confirm everything everytime,,this was NOT the plaza's fault, no need to yell at the staff...... and in reality anyone could type out and print off a confermation letter claiming they have a great room if you look at them so the staff are only doing thier job if the reservation says that you do not,do your homework and re-confirm everything.
