Harrah's - The Real Deal :
Harrah's slots are probably the worst in town. The drink service is equally as bad. Honestly, we've never won a cent in this casino, and not for lack of trying. Harrah's Las Vegas is a prominent member of the "don't waste your time" file. Pass.
Location of Harrah's:
Harrah's is right in the heart of the action. You can't really go wrong here in terms of location, but the rooms are small, the prices are "eh", the casino isn't so hot and the slots are a really tight. Good news: Imperial Palace, O'Shea's & Flamingo are to the South and Casino Royale & Venetian to the north. Lotsa options within walking distance, for both the low and high roller. Caesars, Mirage, TI and Bellagio are directly on the other side of the street.
Cool Stuff About Harrah's:
Toby Keith restaurant serves fried bologna sammitches (yuck)
Originally the Tumbleweed motel (1949), then the Riverboat Casino (1971), then the Holiday Casino (1980)... then Harrahs (1992). Harrah's completed a total renovation in 1997 at the cost of $200 million bucks. The recently snapped up the Flamingo, Ballys, Paris and Caesars in their annexation of the Caesars gaming empire.
The Rooms at Harrah's
Boring and somewhat small standard rooms. The windows don't open in the standard rooms (which do at the Imperial Palace next door). This is the kind of room that makes you say Hey... lets hit the tables.... but when you get to the casino you can't find the tables because the floor layout is so horrible.
Restaurants at Harrah's
Standard fare. The Cafe at Harrah's has some good stuff in it. Check out the Spicy Buffalo Wing wrap and the Spinach Dip appetizer. Yummy eats. Room service is fast, good and moderately priced as well. The Toby Keith diner offers standard trailer park delicacies such as Kraft Macaroni & Cheese with Tuna Fish mixed in, George Foreman grill burgers and fried bologna sandwiches that are made using that sandwich press thingy they sell on the Home Shopping Network. We think that, despite the hilarity, this is an insult to a Vegas tripper... you may think otherwise. You've been warned. Other options include Flavors (their fancifully named buffet) Ming's Table (uh... Chinese food?) Penazzi (Italian + Oyster bar), The Range Steakhouse (folk like this joint, we've never eaten there) Pepper Rose (sandwiches & deli)
Harrahs Rewards Club gives you free Mardi Gras beads when you sign up. For entertainment we got some showgirls, some comedy and improv, a little Rita Rudner, some dueling pianos, and a little karaoke. Carnival Court is just to the south, a good place to stop for a quick drink or late night rock N roll. There's also a number of folks in this area who will be happy to supply you with low grade dirt weed.
