The Riv had a great Vintage feel but I think next time I want that I'll just stay downtown. I'm big on first impressions and the front desk staff here didn't make a good one. I felt like I encountered Roz off of Monsters Inc when I checked in!
No matter how hard I tried to get her to be friendly, it didn't seem to work. I thought maybe Roz and the other lady were just having a bad day but I received the same "star" treatment from two other sets of front desk workers when asking for directions on day two and when checking out. The gaming floor was fairly clean, but pretty smoky. The cocktail waitresses were good, but it seemed they only came by once an hour? I didn't want them in my lap but more than 3 times in one evening would have been nice. Since I only get out there every 3 or 4 years, I had a gambling budget of $3000. I would say that the Riviera got about $100 of it. I've stayed at different places along the strip and can't see myself staying here again like I could at some of the others. I will say that the room was nice, clean and cool, but I had to walk 10 miles to get to it. I guess I was in a remodeled room though, so I'll take that over some of the other rooms I've read about? I had friends staying at Circus Circus, Strat and The Hilton so the location was ideal. [...] The only fun part of staying here was my friends and I taking drunk pics with the Crazy Girls Statues... even though they had NO FACES!! lol!
WE ENJOYED THE RIVIERA HOTEL VERY MUCH, iT IS VERY EASY TO FIND YOUR WAY AROUND THE PEOPLE ARE FRIENDLY AND THE FOOD WAS GOOD. wE LIKE THE LOCATION AWAY FROM THE MAIN STRIP AREA BUT CLOSE ENOUGH TO ACCESS IT EASLIY.
This hotel is nice. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for but for the price I paid it was very nice. I would choose this hotel again in the future but for my next trip I need a hotel more age appropriate for someone in there 20's.
The entire bell staff is at a desk to the left of check in five men were behind
the desk. No one offered to help with the bags same at the Valet check in.
Fire everyone and start over. Check in is by credit card machine. It takes longer than
person to person. AWFUL
First off they only had two people at check in for very large arrival of guest, then we where placed in a room nect to elavator shaft which was extremly noise., they did allow us to move to room next night.
And then we where scammed on a slot
play up to 1000 dollars by getting a whole 1.00 in play.
