I was so looking forward to this hotel, thou, I do know about the big groups of tour coming to the hotel, that doesn't bother me. As we come to the entrance, I was impressed, but after that no more.
The room was facing the lake, so beautiful, but the room is like it's falling apart. The floor is creaking all the time, first time that happen to us. So annoying!!! The bathroom is awful, the room is so small, plus we were given a room on a separate building that has to go thru, with our luggage pass the restaurant, when people are eating...not quite right.
I will not stay here again, if next time in the area, I will look in Bellagio area, lovely, thou, maybe issue with parking. By the way, not much food to eat here either. Don't
