Hotel is nice and convenient!
PostedAugust 7, 2013
Okay. So I felt like when we first got to the hotel, the lady at the desk was very nice. She tried to explain to us why we needed to pay a resort fee for 160.00(which was for the fitness center and 1 day Internet access... Which I thought was completly rediculous) With her trying to explain that, and my husband and I not understanding what it was for the first couple times she was explaining.. She was awesome at keeping calm with us. (Even though we still thought the 160.00 was obsured!!!!) Which leads me into my next comment about booking it through Vegas.com. No where on the site does it tell you that if you book it through Vegas.com instead of the actually hotel itself, that there will be a resort fee of 20.00 a night!!! The lady at the desk, mentioned to us that any hotel that is booked through an "outside source" (which would be Vegas.com) fails to mention that there will be a fee... Blah blah blah!!!! So now, we know for next time to book wherever we stay through that hotel. I think Vegas.com should tell you that!! Cause boy oh boy were we shocked when he hit us with that!!!!! I think the room was decent... A bit smaller than what I imagined from the description on the computer, but, if your just looking a place to pretty much be at night, to just rest your head. This is probably the place to go, it's a nice room, and had an ok view of the strip. But like I said, if your going to be out of the room most of the vacation... Sure.. Why not!!!?? Oh, and the housekeeping ladies, are beyyyooonnnddd nice!!! They are so awesome!!! Always so polite, smiling, saying Hello, and telling us to have a great day... Always saying thank you!!! Just so so so nice!!! So... Props to them :0) The Casino, was very nice... My husband and I aren't big gamblers, so it wasn't a huge factor to us, but it was nice! The location of the hotel was awesome!!!! Right in the center of the strip, very convenient for anywhere walking, also convienient or getting the monorail to anywhere pretty much! If I would recommend staying anywhere on the strip, it would be in the center, cause it was (like i said) soooo convienient!!! That's one thing I actually really liked about our hotel!! And for being in the center of the strip.... It was an expensive trip!!! So the hotel location definitely gets 5 stars!! The pool was a bit of a disappointment, besides the fact that its open to anyone, whether your paying to stay there or not... You can swim there, which eeehhhhh... Isn't really fair... Cause ummmm... I can't swim at the Cesar's, or the Venetian, or the Mirage, if I wanted to, you have to have your key to get into those rooms... But besides that, they pool wasn't big, there was only like 30 lounge chairs (IF THAT!!) and then the rest were "Gold" or "Platinum" card members chairs... That you had to reserve to sit.. So... If you aren't one I the first people down there when it opens.... Forget siting in the sun I guess. But, hey.... It's a pool... It is what it is... No use really in complaining about that. Room location was nice... Directly in the center of the hotel for the elevators to take you there... Was nice. I would've kind preferred more of a strip view, which was in the description of the hotel room we were given, and we did get a little view of the strip, but it was larger view of the back of the entrance of our hotel.... And the ceiling.... But like I said... We could still see a bit of the strip. So it was alright. My overall Vacation to Vegas was Phenominal!!!!! There is definitely things to do all the time.... This is a vacation spot I will definitely reccomend... 5 days out there... Is plenty if time to get your feel of it. It honestly is memorable place... Sooo glad I went!!!! :0)

Does every room have a balcony?

Do all of the classic rooms in Harrah's have a balcony?
Nope.... Cause ours sure didnt... That might have to be a question to bring up to someone at the desk, when checking in. Maybe they'd be able to set you up in a room with a balcony once to get there. :0) Good Luck!!

pets

Are pets allowed? Is there a place to walk them?
I believe there is a pet friendly room you can book. Now as far as walking the dog I'm not sure if there are places to walk them. I did see a good amount of dogs in the hotel through my week stay at the Harrahs.... Sooooo... I believe they do! :0) good luck!
