This was my second stay at Harvey's, and I was NOT disappointed with the hotel either time. The rooms are excellent (I was in the 2 Queen Luxury room), and this year the price was much better (because I lost so much money the year before). I was able to get a room for 3 nights at about $35/night, but for non-gamblers, the rate is usually about $100 per night (sometime as high as $130 depending on season). Rates can change weekly, and look for their promo deals in advance of your trip (2-3 months before). When I first booked my 4th night it was $130, and I ended up getting it for $90 4 weeks later.
The rooms were big enough and the bathrooms were excellent. I was there with friends, so I have no idea about the views (we stayed on 5th floor with a view of parking garage, but we knew that and it was no big deal for us). The one issue I did have is with the TV reception. The TVs were new, but the clarity of the picture was distorted a bit (maybe because the HD connection was slower?-----but this was not a huge deal unless you are there to watch a lot of TV).
The convenience to the gondola was excellent, so if you are there to ski, you walk 1 block into California, pick up your skis from one of the two rental places there, and you are set. They also give a discount at one of the places for Harvey's guests. The jacuzzi is outside and they keep it and the heated pool open all year. TIP----Bring crox or some type of shoe you do not mind getting wet walking to-and-fro to the jacuzzi (the ground is COLD). Jacuzzi is full of skiers in the evenings, but we can behave ourselves, and can tone down the language when kids are around.
I reviewed the casino in a separate entry, but as stated in my title, I think the casino is below average mainly because of the comp system is flawed for poker players and the blackjack always pays 6:5. I would never plan a trip here just to gamble.
I ate the American River Cafe (on the Harrah's side), Hard Rock Cafe, Caba Woba and at Starbucks. Food was good, but nothing special. I heard good things about the fancier restaurants, but did not go there myself.
