We took the two (2) night New Year's Eve package. The staff was good and the room was extremely spacious and nice. We ate at Red's on Monday evening which was not on the package. It was good, but for the price it was only average. The package that evening included a Comedy Club show which was ok, but not exceptional. The first comedian was more about cursing and fowl language than comedy. The second comedian was very good and a more appropriate. The package included the Buffet dinner on New Year's Eve which was really very good and as an added nice surprise, had very enjoyable live entertainment. They also served a complimentary glass of Champagne. The really horrid part of the package was the New Year's Eve so called Party in Gypsies. All the package included was getting you in as it was open to the public and if you were on the package, there was no where for you to sit or stand. The music was provided by an awful DJ who didn't play any variety of music so that everyone could dance, the dance floor had more tables on it than space, they had images dancing behind a curtained stage (very boring) specially that the theme was "naughty or nice". The entire event was awful and disappointing and there were no provisions for people on the package. It was like a cattle scene. If you could get a table, two people would have to buy bottle service at a cost of $175.00. Bringing in the New Year at a Casino is supposed to be dancing, exciting, etc., this was totally boring and totally disappointing. To be honest, the band in the Buffet would have been a much better spot to bring in the New Year---the DJ should have been fired. The buffet on New Year's Day which was included in the package was very good and there again, you had great live entertainment at the Brunch.
The package would have been great, if they had a room set up with proper tables reserved for the people who were on the package, some munchies and live entertainment with music that appealed to every age group and more excitement to bring in the New Year. Better yet, they should have had a private room with dining, dancing (not DJ), champagne, etc. If they still wanted to do the buffet, then it was better to make a dance floor in there and bring in the New Year with the live band which as so congenial, entertaining and played music for everyone to enjoy. We are not buffet people, but the buffet and brunch were very good. As a matter of fact, the food in the buffet is better than the food in the restaurants. Another disappointment was that the pool was still underconstruction, and when we booked this package, we were told the pool would be ready.
This Hotel leaves a lot to be desired, especially more places to eat and perhaps some shops. Management should take a look at their competitors such as The Sands and Mohegan Sun in Wilkes Barre which blows Mount Airy out of the market. Plus the Main Casino is one big smoking parlor.
We might go here again for a day trip, but as far as overnights, weekends, packages or New Year's Eve---stay AWAY.
