One of the few places left you can smoke indoors! The environment is great here, and there is just so much to do and so many good places to eat. I usually go with the intention of losing money so that I don't leave disappointed. Awesome place to spend the weekend.
Enjoyed our room and the conference we were there for went great. The food tasted quite good at the various restaurants that we visited. The biggest downsides were the security, which was everywhere and didn't seem to like groups of 4 or more people; the service, which often seemed to not care about the customers; and the drinking restrictions, we got turned away from a bar because we were laughing and one of the women in our group had taken off her heels. There were exceptions to the service experience though, as many of the people serving the conference were lovely. Overall a good experience but Vegas this is not. Also the "largest casino" statement is about square footage, and many of the gambling areas in Vegas feel much larger.
There is a lot to do right on site because it is a resort. It is very kid friendly with a small movie theatre, sweet shop, video arcade, outdoor pool and bowling alley available right there in the resort. The casino is fairly big and there are other forms of adult entertainment like shows in the theatre, nice restaurants and a spa. I have never been in the pool because I went in the winter both times. At the hotel a shuttle service is available to the airport, which from there you can get on other shuttles to other hotels and casinos. It is set up very nice like that. The time my family and I went during Christmas, the hotel area was very festive and felt homey.
Went to Bingo for my birthday (free admission on Tuesdays during your birth month) great time. Beautiful place. Been going here for years! If your in the area, stop in. They have everything. Shopping, dining, arcade for kids, bingo, endless fun. Get here and good luck!
