If you have even remotely contemplated staying at this hotel, run elsewhere as quickly as your credit card will allow. We stayed there because of SOELive 2014 was held there for a second year, usually a decent indication that the hotel is clean and decent if a convention returns.
Nope, not clean and you couldn’t pay us to return. The room wouldn’t pass Hotel Impossible inspection. Fingers run over the tops of furniture came back covered in dust you could see from across the room, there were runs in the carpet, and the room was DARK. We didn’t arrive at night but the room was dark because the interior was heavy on dark woods and color schemes with an impossibly small window attempting to throw light in the room. We had upgraded our room to a Fountain view so who knows how dark and dirty a non-premium room would have been. Dave knelt on the edge of the bed and it raised a good six to eight inches off the ground, there went any prospective of fooling around.
The bathroom was at least a third the size of the sleeping area, showcasing a tub that tipped to one side to drain when you stood up in it. There was only one sink yet sufficient counter space for two, although the ridiculous tub in the center of the bathroom blocked the path for a second sink. The toilet was so low to the ground a toddler would have no trouble climbing up and into the toilet, I’m short and I thought it was too damn low so what does that tell you. The shower flooded the marble floor every time you took a shower, so stepping out to dry off became a contest to see if you could manage to avoid really hurting yourself. Somehow we managed but it was close.
Food is all located on the perimeter of the casino floor, which like all casinos is that unpleasant mix of stale body odor, cigarette smoke, booze, and booze. Makes for a charming atmosphere to dine in doesn’t it? Food we had was ok, nothing to rave about. Dave posted a shot of me eating an impossibly large chocolate cake. It tasted good but the whipping cream was from a can and I couldn’t vouch for the cake not being massed produced off site.
All of the furniture in the hotel is impossibly low to the ground, far more toddler friendly than adult friendly. I kid you not when seats don’t come much past my ankles I wonder what sadist thought putting these in a hotel was a good idea. And then Dave pointed out, that the lower the seats are from the ground the less likely drunks would fall down and seriously hurt themselves. Guess that sums up all I need to say doesn’t it?
Admittedly, casinos and public displays of stupidity aren’t our thing but this hotel was far worse than the others I’ve stayed at in Las Vegas. Truly meant for the young, stupid, self-obsessed, and low self-esteem crowd. We won’t be back.
