Stayed over the weekend with my wife for our 2nd year anniversary. This hotel is very modern and new. Think my room was still in the middle of being set up because the two Cisco phones in the room didnt work. Also, the vent in the bathroom did not seem to turn on as well.
Despite the above minor issues, the room itself was very new and modern. The facilities were very clean, and room overlooked the lake (in front of the building). The King sized bed and light fixtures were very comfortable and convenient. The bathroom was spacious with a pretty decent sized shower tiled stall with dual showerheads (one fixed and one mobile). One complaint is that there is a door going into the bathroom, and a door within the bathroom for the toilet - with so many doors, it definitely ate up space within the bathroom (see pics attached with this review). Otherwise, the hotel room was very nice.
Parking is free and is valet.
The hotel is connected with the casino from the main lobby and through the elevators. Whats great with the set up is that the elevators are private, so you need a room key to unlock the floors to press on the elevator (adds a good sense of security - as there are lots of people walking in and out of the casino/hotel at any given time). The casino guards were really strict and checked us for IDs both times. I dont mind getting ID'ed, except that in both instances, the guards looked annoyed , pissed , and angry at us when they approached us. I understand the casino policy, but seriously i'm a paying patron, smiling and being polite wouldn't kill...
Restaurants, there are 5 restaurants, a bar, and a lounge/nightclub within the casino floors. Dont remember the names all too well, but it had the following eating options:
a Buffet, a Noodle bar, a Diner, an Italian restaurant, and "Red's" Steakhouse. I checked in late on friday night (~10:30PM), and my wife and i were looking for dining options. We passed on the steakhouse as it was very expensive. The buffet and noodle bar was closed. So the only options left was the Diner and Italian restaurant. We went into the Italian place and stood in front of the matre d counter for a few minutes. The restaurant was pretty empty, and the waiters just looked at us and continued doing ... nothing but sit and stand around and talk with each other. After 5 minutes, we left and went to the Diner and asked about the italian restaurant and were told that they were closing for the night. What i'm really annoyed about was, none of their staff (even though they saw us) approached us and told us... The Diner however was very good service.
Overall, the hotel was very modern and clean. It has all the toiletries amenities and linens in abundance. The valet Parking attendants and front desk were all very friendly. The security guards in the casino entrance and the Italian restaurant staff was remarkably awful.
