Saved a recent business trip
I was in Las Vegas this week for business. I spent a night at Harrah's and it was so loud and dingy that I had to move after one night. I was hauling around a bunch of stuff and just exhausted, so I tried to check in early. They only had smoking rooms available, so I took one, hoping it wouldn't be too bad. She offered me a free bottle of champagne for taking the smoking room and insisted on sending someone up to spray. The guy arrived almost immediately and it did help, but only that first day.
Pros: Great location. There's a tram to the Mirage and a walking bridge to The Venetian. The casino lobby here is the only one I find easy to navigate and there were several food options on site, though I didn't have time to eat at any. There's a decent pool and my room was clean and a great size. Best of all was the service. They were all friendly and efficient and very helpful.
I would really rate this a 4.5 but couldn't figure out how to do that. The only downside I experienced was the smell in the smoking room, and that was more my fault for not waiting for a nonsmoking room to be available. Every time I left the room and came back it would hit me again.
Otherwise, I would highly recommend & will be returning to this hotel.
