Just got back from a stay in a Tower One Bedroom Suite. At check in I was told that they where going to put a $200 deposit on my credit card in case I "thrashed the room" and it "had a mini-bar." No where did it say that when I reserved the room or in the emails I received from them. I spoke with the manager and showed him what I had. He then just took an imprint of the card for $100.00. If you use a debit card they will charge you $300. The mini-bar consisted of a small refrigerator that was already stocked with expensive items. If I wanted to put anything in it I would have to take out items and then be charged a $50 restocking fee. Or I could rent one for $25 a day. The rooms do not have enough light in them. There is no light at all over the dining table. The lights in the bedroom are the same. And the light on the desk is just as dim. For the $25 a day resort fee you get only 512k speed in the wireless internet. If you want 1.5megs you have to pay $14.95 for 38 hours. I can get way faster speeds at home from a Days Inn and not be charged for it. Never did get the wired internet to work. My room was on the 8th floor (they where only 60% booked supposedly and where not cleaning higher floors according to check in) and I could hear the trash trucks, deliveries, etc at all hours of the night. There was even a light switch near the door that worked nothing at all. And sockets covered up all over the room. And to raise and lower the shade and black out shade (it is called a curtain in the room description on the website) you have to walk across a dark room to find it. No switch by the door to the bedroom from the main room. Just at the door to the hallway. The bed was comfortable tho. But it seems that they want you out of the room and spending money then relaxing. Just be prepared for all the fees, etc that they will charge you.
Great fresh food. Ate here 3 times during a recent conference. It became a favorite spot.
Outstanding staff, great atmosphere..
Good to go, great java!
Good sandwiches and burgers, worth a trip
Great food, a bit spendy, but overall great staff and tasty food!
Outstand pizza, excellent for a late night snack
Incredile experience all around. Made my wifes 50th one to remember!
Meal was absolutley delicious and the service was excellent. Will definitley go back next time i am in vegas.
Meal wasn't anything special, pasta was undercooked, and its way over priced. We arrived with high expectations, and left disappointed.
Saw Marc Savard first and was able to get $10 tickets to Nathan's show, second row. Thought the magic show was the best I've ever seen.
Great show. A lot of laughs.
Best pizza I have ever had by far. Service was equally awesome.
I highly recommend the Monte Carlo for your next trip. Is it a five star property? No. But this is a clean comfortable room. The service was great; I called for a special request and it was taken care of within the hour. I'll be back.
We spent four comp nights here and enjoyed it quite a bit. I was skeptical before going since it has the reputaion of catering to the 20 something set. But everyone from the desk clerk to restaraunt employees were exceptionally friendly to us. Of course around 10 pm, there is an influx of the club crowd, lot of young women dressed in hooker attire, and dudes in hip hop outfits. But few of them seemed to be staying in the hotel, and were no real annoyance. I assume the Palms makes a lot of money on bottle service since this club doesnt seem to gamble. As far as the casino, they have pretty good video poker games, you can find full pay if you look carefully. The slots seem to be much looser than those on the strip, and we enjoyed gambling here. The room was pleasant and clean. It was a Little large than most vegas rooms. Most notable thing was the view out of the floor to ceiling windows, great view of the strip, especially since we had a corner room facing the Rio. We will definitely stAy here again.
Wow, what a pleasant surprise. The food is great; the atmosphere is great; the service...meh. What a large variety. The Stromboli was very good. If you like pizza this is your place.
Trendy, loud, overpriced. Not my style at all.
I couldn't disagree more with last reviewer. Our meal was delicious, service impeccable and atmosphere perfect in every way. I think we got a lot for our money.
If you have a free or discounted coupon go, but it's a bit pricy for the quality and/or variety. I went for breakfast and they have the standard fare, waffles, omelette station, etc. I like that I can get my own coffee without having to wait for a server. Quite a bit crowded with tour group, but that was bad timing on my part rather than a knock on place.
If the service was not so bad...but you can say that just about every place in Vegas. The beer selection? Good, but not great, if you are a craft guy. If you are a macro brew guy the selection is great. My burger (Pub Burger) was very good (as good as those fancier burger trendy joints) and the onion rings were above average (as opposed to KGB). Fun atmosphere.
Had a wonderful time this past week staying at Planet Hollywood while attending a conference. We actually booked two rooms, one for ourselves and one for students attending the conference.
Check-in was smooth and easy and Harry was the gentleman that checked us in and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful and polite experience. When we checked out 5 days later he immediately remembered us as we approached the desk. He had helped us when we requested a specific view from our room and when we were checking out he asked if we enjoyed the views.
We could lay in our bed and watch the Bellagio Fountains.
Planet Hollywood is a great location and has the added benefit of having the Miracle Mall attached. It was especially great when we had students with us who could run down to the various stores to get things. It's also easy to get to the monorail by walking next door to Paris and walking through Bally's to catch it to the convention center.
There are a lot of great restaurants available in Planet Hollywood and the mall. You always feel safe while in the casino and mall.
Even though it does seem to focus on attracting a younger crowd, it was still pleasant for us (and we are in our 50's).
I've stayed in several hotels along the strip and this was my second stay in Planet Hollywood and this is where I plan to stay when I come back.
The only negative I can think of is the carpet in the hallways is beginning to show wear and needs updating and the chairs in the rooms need to be replaced. However everything else was great and clean. We had a large room (about 550 sq. ft.) with two vanities in the bathroom and separate large bath tub and large shower. As I said earlier the room was wonderful with a strip view and we enjoyed being able to lay in bed and watch the fountains.
Everyone we encountered that worked there was polite and helpful. And Harry was absolutely wonderful at check-in which just started our Las Vegas experience off on a great note!!!
I have to admit I not a fan of the "burger craze". That said, my hamburger did not disappoint. I dined on the "spicy" burger and it lives up to its name. Whew. I 'upgraded' to the onion rings; big mistake. Terrible. The service was friendly, though slow. If I want a hamburger, this is a great option. Just avoid the rings.
In an area of sub-par Mexican food, GyG stands out. The tortilla soup was the highlight; almost worth it right there. The rest of the meal was good, not great, but good. The service was very friendly, though slow. I'd go back.
The food was excellent despite the slightly tacky decor! Don't miss it!
Tuesday night band was pretty terrible. But service and and drinks were good so we went back and gave it a second try. Regular band wa great.
Food was fine but very over priced for what it is. Went for lunch stopped by at night and not much of a party
Caters to an older crowd. Didn't stay once we saw the clientele
Not super busy. Great service and music highly recommend.
Meal was fine. Staff friendly. Reasonably priced.
Meal was good and reasonable. Staff super friendly! Would eat at again.
This show was super funny and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't think I've laughed this hard in years. I would highly recommend for adults.
Quick moving show with a good variety of talented acts. Crazy gauchos, magician, contortionist, strong men, birds, and roller skating on the evening I attended. If something's not striking your fancy just wait a few minutes and they'll be off the stage. Definitely a low budget production that could probably benefit from a tech upgrade. Enjoyed the show but would have felt differently had I not gotten them for 50% off using one of the many coupon codes for their box office site. It's good entertainment, but at $70 plus a ticket you can usually see a big production show like Cirque with a promotion/discount and there is really no need for the VIP upgrade.
Nom nom burger and red velvet/black cow shakes were great. Memphis burger was not good and the fries were flat out horrible. Friendly service and fun atmosphere, but with so many places offering a similar menu it's hard to justify going back when the fries were so bad and only 1 of the burgers was great.
Average food and nothing particularly creative on the menu. Ended up here because we were interested in a nice meal or any type of food in particular. Onion rings and burger were good, nothing worth going back for though. Peanut butter frozen hot chocolate was horrible. I can't imagine it was made correctly as neither of us had more than a sip before tossing it in the trash. No way anyone would rave about it if it always taste like that.
Great food, huge portions, and efficient service. Everything tastes fresh and I don't think there's a single did on the menu. It wouldn't be a trip to vegas without a stop here for breakfast.
Holiday turkey sandwich is always delicious and a great value for the price.
Solid buffet but was not blown away by any of the lunch offerings. There was not a single item that stood out and had me rushing back for another serving. Staff seemed slow to restock items on the line and many stations were regularly empty. Desserts were beautifully presented but much like the rest of the food did not impress. With so many high end buffets on the strip now I don't see a reason to go back.
Got upgraded from a standard luxury suite to a Siena as a result of checking in late on a night with high occupancy. I can't imagine having the opportunity to stay in a room that large again so it was quite the experience, but the square footage could have been used much better. Lots of bare space in the dining/living area and the elliptical room unnecessary. Very friendly staff across the property whether it was front desk, player's club, housekeeping, or bars/restaurants. Loved the open, clean feel of the casino floor and even though the property was busy it never felt crowded. Winter in Venice activities/decorations seemed cheap for the caliber of property so that was a disappointment. Also forgot just how far away from the action of the mid strip it was until the first night of walking around. That did result in a more relaxed less hectic stay and at least it's closer than the Wynn/Encore. I would certainly be happy staying here on future visits but will probably continue to try new options to compare against.
I am not a pizza lover but I always stop here for pizza, every trip. I actually crave it. The best pizzas and a great open casino atmosphere.
Definitely disappointed in the show after hearing such rave reviews from friends. We are fans of The Beatles but clearly not big enough ones to really be moved by the show solely for that reason. We went into the show knowing it was going to be much different than Cirque's classic "circus/street performance" inspired shows and that it wasn't big on acrobatics, but still disappointed by the reliance on dancing/trippy visuals. There were really only 2-3 notable acts in the entire show. We also really missed the live music, though the remastered/remixed versions of songs and sound quality were great it just didn't match the power of watching live performers and hearing new music. As always for Cirque, theater design was great and there is no reason to spend the extra money on a top category ticket. Overall glad we gave it a shot but of the 5 resident/touring CDS shows I've seen I'd rate it at the bottom. I'd much rather take the classic offerings like Mystere at TI or La Nouba in Orlando any day.
Food is good. Prices as you would expect on the Strip. But the service was the worst we've experienced in Vegas. Too little waiters and too many clueless runners. They messed up our ticket and brought out our appetizer and entree at same time so the runner offered to "put it in the window ... The light keeps it warm". Um, no. Service couldn't get any of little things right (water never refilled, had to steal salt/pepper from another table ourselves, etc). Would not recommend.
Went here for dinner looking for great food without the high end prices and got exactly that. Pretty extensive beer list, friendly service, comfortable setting, and a delicious albeit limited menu. I would recommend everything we had; short rib, roast chicken, and an awesome chocolate stout cake to end the meal. The bar definitely gets loud during games and the noise spills into the dining room so if you want a quiet meal make sure to keep that in mind.
Very good food. I had the rigatoni with meatballs. Food was excellent . Service was slow. But I dined solo and sat in the bar area . Only one waiter for the whole bar area. So I can't fault the waiter . As he was hoping all around . A little pricey . But it was really good.
Good food but the portions are too huge. Decent service and a bright deli decor make this a nice spot for lunch.
Good food at decent prices. The service was great and the food very delicious, (especially the pizzas).
Great pizza any time of the night. This place was rocking at 3am and the pizza slices were delicious. Not easy to find though if you don't know where you are going.
This is the best show I have seen in Las Vegas. The music is stirring, and the cirque-like performance is visually awesome. The circular staging means everyone has a great view and the hydraulics involved in raising and lowering aspects of the stage above and below the massive water tank are just mind blowing. If you see nothing else in Las Vegas, see this show. Loved it.
We saw this show last week and it was unbelievably the worst performance I have ever seen. He started late and the performance was a little over an hour. He did so much talking about all his accomplishments it was unreal. Don't waste your money on this "show". 11/13/13
Had heard this was opening and was curious to see how this would differ from the Craft spots Tom is so famous for. Elegant in its simplicity. Everything from seating to drinks to dinner was quick friendly and delicious. Had the Ribeye with potatoes and mushrooms with the scallop for starters. The mushrooms were out of this world!!! Scallop was cooked perfect and the kick at the end was a nice surprise. With wine dinner for two was just at $200.00 so this isn't The Sizzler but if you want to try good food made the way it should, give this place a try.
Went in for breakfast. Very surprised how it looked in there. Tables and chairs were very nice and the entire place had a more restaurant feel and that was very pleasant. Food was prepared well and enjoyed the meal but what I did find surprising was how little variety there was. One egg station, one carving station. An Italian and oriental station. Again very good but for a large hotel buffet I just expected more variety. That said great meal, not too pricey (in line with Bellagio and Caesars) and decor and comfort wise best place I've been to in Vegas.
Worst show I've ever seen in Vegas, I know it's not real but at least be funny.
The people that like this show also believe wrestling is not fake.
Very nice atmosphere & the sushi is out of bounds. Not often do I order a second time in one visit, but it was that good. Could get pricey if you go there really hungry, but well worth it.
Awesome show , worth every dollar. Wish I would have had front row seats
Smelled the place as soon as we walked through the doors. Had to try it, got a pepperoni with side salad and split it with my sister. The salad had fresh Parmesan, nice touch. The meal totally hit the spot for a pizza craving!¡
Casino looks nice but it's really not cool when you play here earlier in the day and like the casino then take a cab back here to play the 9-6 jacks or better game you were playing earlier... And it's missing. Removed by server based gaming. Not cool downtown grand. Not cool at all.
Anticipation of going to triple 7 , one of my favorites in Vegas , was doomed . My first meal every trip to Vegas is 777 brew pub , I loved the drinks and the food , until my latest trip that is . I ordered my usual wings hot and a basket of calamari . The wings were so undercooked that when I bit into them blood was dripping from the bones I immediately stopped eating them and tried the calamari , they were mediocre at best not crispy , kind of soggy and very rubbery almost like they had been cooked twice . Well at least the manager without hesitation removed the wings from our bill but did nothing else such as offer a free order or offer a discount on a future discount . I was pretty disappointed and I am pretty sure it will be a long time before I return , I will have to find myself another go to restaurant perhaps nacho daddy will be my go to place from here on .
Nice clean hotel , rooms are smaller but very clean and comfortable . Stayed there for five nights and would definitely stay again . The only negative is showers are very low so if you are a taller person you will not enjoy the shower. Staff are the friendliest I have encountered in all my trips to Vegas and made the stay that much better . The casino was always one of the busiest on fremont street had a great atmosphere second only to The D .
Finally! Some new posts! Irish bar is fun. More fun when I'm not drunk, tired and way over dressed. But Irish bar is a good time. Met a bahcoler party there once from europe and they were on a 10 day bahcoler party.
My friends and I ate at Tender during VIMFP - we all thought that the steaks and lamb were great! The dry-aged ribeye was 20oz and hardly had any bone in it, making it a huge steak. We all ordered a side, which was more than adequate to share - with drinks and salads, we each all spent around $60 a person for steak on the strip, which is a good value!
Overall, the show was a good value and I would recommend it for the price but other shows are flat out better. The narrative of the show was uneven and the feel was a bit flat. However, this is coming from someone that is very familiar with Vegas history. In many ways, it was like watching a movie after having read the book and feeling like a lot was missing. Most notably, no Liberace? The show could be great but as of right now, it's a solid B-
Had a late night bite here and found the food to be only "ok" and overpriced.
We had "build your own burger" and it was honestly just ok. Onion rings were good. Service was ok. I've had way better burgers.
Stopped here for lunch before heading to the airport. Food was really good. Husband had shepherds pie and I had fish and chips. Both very good dishes. The ketchup has a unique flavor that was really good with the fries. Would definitely eat here again
Best meal I've ever had in Vegas. Prime rib was huge and delicious. View at 9 pm of Fremont created an amazing atmosphere.
This was my first time staying here, and now I don't know if I can go back to my usual mid-tier properties. I was upgraded to a one bedroom terrace suite in the east side tower. I'd recommend this tower so you are closer to the Strip. Very comfortable bed and bathroom, though the tub isn't the best for taking a soak. The casino floor has changed slightly (no more Spanish 21) but the minimums during the day are much better than before. And it was refreshing to see a polished, professional-looking staff throughout the building. I highly recommend trying this property.
Bone in ribeye is outstanding. Cooked to perfection. Staff always very accommodating.
Wait time was ridiculous ,seemed everybody was seated before us
Ate alone at the bar. Great bartenders. Nice service and company. The foie gras custard brûlée was outstanding. I could have had it for dessert. Licked the plate. Iberico pork was tasty. Continuing the theme, I finished with foie gras ice cream sundae. Interesting complex combination of favors, but it worked. Overall, one of the best meals I've had in Las Vegas. I can't wait to return.
Can't understand the negative reviews. Had a nice late lunch. Ceviche tasty. Serrano ham delicious. Beef and pork meatballs tender. Oxtail melted in my mouth. Great wine selection. Finished off with flan. Will make it a regular lunch stop at future visits.
Nice menu selection. Food well prepared. Not inexpensive, but view and atmosphere great. Only complaint is that it took so long to be seated despite half empty restaurant. Not enough hostesses. The two hostesses there seemed in no hurry to seat customers.
Went for a signature massage. Was taken to a "relaxation room" to await treatment. There were over twenty other clients waiting. Hard to relax! Spa may be too big. Therapist was great. Treatment was relaxing, but lockers small. Attendants put others on either side of my locker despite a large locker room. Had to wait to get to my locker. Gym is too overcrowded. Hard to find a place to exercise. Will not return.
Needed a quick meal before an event at the Orleans Arena. For 15 bucks, buffet was a great deal. A wide variety of hot and cold dishes. Even had a carving station. Not gourmet, but typical of decent cafeteria food. Nice variety. Plenty of room to maneuver at food stations. Pleasant staff. Will return if at the Orleans.
I had the chopped salad, strip steak, potato say gratin, sautéed spinach and creme brûlée for desert. All of it was great and the steak was perfectly cooked. Also, the waiter was great with the wine. I ordered by the glass and after ordering a glass of Coppola Merlot he also brought out a taste of another wine I was thinking of trying. The decor is a little been 1970's futuristic but still nice in a wacky way.
I'd read a bunch of great reviews but Andiamo bested them. The food was incredible, the service was great. I had a ribeye that was amazing. I'd eat here anytime and put it up next to any Strip joint.
Holy shit. So good. Seriously. One of the best meals I've has in as long as I can remember.
Fantastic show even if your not a Prince fan the musicians are all outstanding, the likeness to Prince is uncanny from the costumes, voice, and moves, we seen the show in Hooters and has now moved to Planet Hollywood and will be returning to see the show again on our next visit to vegas as tickets are reasonably priced and it's a great night out.
A must go see show VIP seating is the best option you have a meet and greet after the show and plenty of opportunity for photographs Matt is such a humble down to earth guy, yes the venue is small that's what makes it so great he is a fantastic singer and effortlessly sings the swing style it really suits his voice, great interaction with the crowd and the Dirty Virgin dancers are stunning and give the blokes something to admire while the females drool over being close up and personal with Matt Goss would definitely return again to see this show VIP of course !!
MGM has always been a great hotel but I hope the management help support the Lion Habitat as they have four new cubs maybe tours from the hotel would be a great idea
Mediocre tasting pizza at best. The crust was okay so I gave it 3 stars.
So good! Love those chili fries.
What a great place!! Such huge rooms, with even bigger bathrooms. The staff is nice and attentive. Easy check in, never a Disneyland esque line here. I've had 3 stays here and all of them have been perfect.
It's also very easy to score the 1 bedroom upgrade, since I believe they have more of them than they have studios. Just ask. Or slip them a $20.
Most of all this the best deal in Vegas by far! 5 star hotel, many nights, under $100 a night
(even less on Priceline, it's in it's own zone so you can always win it).
We only had time to see a couple of shows when we were in Vegas and X Rocks was one of them. Really a fun show. Visually, it's almost overwhelming. For the size of the room, the lights and effects are great. Dancing is good, 5 (or 6?) incredibly hot women, quick paced numbers to classic rock and roll. The comic who came out in the middle of the show was very funny too. We liked it. And we felt like we really saw a show when we came out of there. Good one.
Love it here ... the rooms are amongst the best for price in Vegas.
As a slot player. Not overly keen on the casino slots selection but the attached Venetian casino more than makes up for it.
If you're Grazie Gold you can use the Gold lounge at Venetian for drinks and a selection of snacks
I like Rhumbar; tasty drinks, nice wait staff, good music and a phenomenal location...unfortunately I won't go back. They have started charging a 3.75% CSF, a fee for no reason other than to make more money. Our waitress told us it was called a Concession Service Fee, and that it was a way for them to make more money without raising their drink prices. This fee is ridiculous! The CSF wasn't even listed on our menu, it just showed up on our final bill. Charge me what the drink cost and don't tack on a fee at the end. I'm more than willing to pay the current cost of the drink and would even pay a dollar more, their prices are competitive with other speciality bars on the strip. In all fairness, we did a little investigating and after looking through a couple of menus we found one with the fee list, also our fee was waived when we asked to speak with the manager (he never talked to us, just told the waitress to take it off the bill). I would love to go back to Rhumbar but until they get rid of the fee I won't be back. Lesson for anybody that chooses to go to Rhumbar, asked to speak with a manager about the CSF and they will waive it rather than have to justify their shoddy business practices to you.
Just stayed at Bally's south tower with the updated rooms. Great improvement ! But I think they may have tightened up the slots every morning to pay for it. Next trip we will stay there and play elsewhere .
Awesome! You won't leave hungry. Every visit, the food is served to perfection by pleasant and efficient staff. Tractor driver combo with brown sugar banana flapjacks is highly recommended. I eat there as much as possible whenever I visit.
Absolutely the worst show I've ever seen. I felt like the joke was on me and that he was mocking the crowd because his show was so unbelievably bad. We could see the wires and he did not perform anything seemlessly. We walked out early and felt so jilted and stolen from (money and time). Any positive reviews here should be considered highly suspicious!!
Finally ate in the regular dining section. It was lively when we ate at 8pm on a Friday and the atmosphere was fun. The sushi was quite fresh and very good. Service was acceptable though not memorable. Ordering from the robata grill was a bonus. I'd say our group did a poor job of ordering, as I found myself at zoozacrackers an hour after dinner ordering pulled pork sliders. So the $400 total for 3 was probably acceptable but not really money well spent for us.
It was really good. The food was really good, service was really good, atmosphere was... You get the point. Not excellent, but... Now I know why Wynn categorizes this as a "casual dining" restaurant instead of a "fine dining" one. An order of sushi rolls and drunken noodles and the bill was just under $40 for one... Not bad.
What a cool experience. The restaurant's rather modern, stark interior seemed a little odd for a steakhouse, but it works. The food was imaginative and very tasty. What sets this place apart for me, though, is the service. Very professional, personable, and helpful. Yes it is pricey, but you get what you pay for.
Best place to have a cocktail on the strip.
Nothing bad. Nothing great. For a hefty price tag, you want to be "wowed" during your dining experience. I wasn't. Won't return. Too many better options in the town.
Skysuites are among the top high end suites in all of Las Vegas. Stayed in a 2 bedroom penthouse suite. Very large room with separate living and dining room with bar. 6 TVs. Bathrooms are amazing with steam shower and toto washlet toilet. Service is also great including a well-stocked lobby, limo service and helpful concierge.
I was bored the entire time...not worth the money!!
Remarkable. Party of 4 enjoyed sushi & great dishes. I only remember what I got - the best Pad Thai I've ever eaten. Great selection of Asian beers, too!
