My husband and I traveled from the Seattle area for a two night stay to celebrate our anniversary. We drove down, arriving Saturday afternoon. There was evidently a casino give-way that evening and the place was packed. We upgraded to a suite and were happy we did.
The decor was a bit austere, the rooms were large. The primary bathroom was a delight...marble double sink counters, tile flooring, jetted bath and amenties, complimentary slippers, etc. The second bath was at the entrance and larger than average.
The king bed was very comfortable and the suite was very quiet, we didn't hear a sound the two days we were there. Negatives were the futon in the main room, a sofa would have been much better, there was no closet in the suite. The bedroom entertainment center had a very small cupboard with only three hangers, not enough for two people.
There was no pen or paper by the phone for messages.
The distance from the elevators to the casino was LONG walk, golf cart shuttles were available for those needing assistance, inside, of course.The decor in the public areas is very nice.
We were especially impressed with the friendliness of every staff member we came in contact with: parking attendants, bus boys, desk personnel, restaurant employees, housekeeping, gift shop, cashiers, bell captain, maintenance and security people.....not one rude or unpleasant person.
This is a large facility, the parking lots are huge, and it appears to be a very popular place. We were glad we went.
