I had heard the hype and wasn't actually planning to like this. I really, really liked it. The wood-inlaid blackjack tables are a nice touch. The every 4 minute drink service is a better one.
I think I got lucky. My room was gorgeous (dig the terrace), and I had no hotel operations related nightmares. The blackjack tables provided more fun than I'd had gambling in years. Scarpetta is phenomenal.
Gorgeous. Dark, yes. But still this place is effing serious.
Classy. Even with all the hookers in the bar.
Best food in Vegas. Craftsteak, Robuchon, Fiamma....no problems here. Also a pretty friendly atmosphere.
Casino is a little dark, but I found the dealers pretty friendly. I hope they lose the 6:5 rubbish. I hear they got rid of the cafe as well. While it wasn't the best in the world, I vaguely recall enjoying breakfasts there at 4:30
very very shiny.
It sure looks awesome. I haven't been yet, and I can't give full points -- no casino. However, when I attempt to coax my girlfriend to try Las Vegas, this may be the best way.
Rooms are a little bit long in the tooth, but the casino is superb. Solid drink service.
Kick ass drunken 3 dollar blackjack.
Kind of boring, but bonus points for lots of open tables, and unusually friendly pit-bosses.
Fun casino....I look forward to seeing the renovations.
Except for the 6:5 nonsense, good atmosphere for table games. We also enjoyed trying to get laughs from a very surly dealer.
