Great Business Trip

The Riviera was very comfortable and relaxing. It was easy to travel back and forth to my conference site at the Mandalay Bay. My only complaint is that smoking is allowed in the lobby and Casino area. As a Respiratory Therapist, I was disturbed by this due to second hand smoke exposure. Next time I will choose a non smoking facility. Otherwise great trip and excellent customer service.

You get what you pay for

Riviera was probably a great casino to stay at....20-30 years ago. It looks straight out of the 70s or 80s and needs a major refurbishing. Overall, I had an average experience considering the above factors. Staff was nice enough, did play some table games and checked out the sports book. Banana leaf was good for breakfast. The price is very low though so if you're on a budget its not terrible. Also, note that its a fair walk to actual bright new center strip. If you don't mind

I'll know better next time!!!

We only booked with the Riviera because almost everything else was sold out. They first had in a smoking room which we clear was not an option after the manager got involved they moved us into a non smoking room. Dated does not begging to describe the room. We requested a king and were told by the reservation staff that would not be an issue, well surprise surprise it was and we ended up with two double beds. The restaurant at the hotel had awful food and they took forever. In the morning trying get a coffee typically took 15 minutes because they were so slow. The only positive is they were wishing walking distance to the convention center. I'll know better next time.

This hotel was filled with nostagalia. The location was at the top of the strip and easy access in any direction including the Las Vegas Convention Center. Great value for the dollar.

Absolutely horrible

Not only did I NOT get the room I booked but the new room I had to book was an 'upgrade' to a suite. (If an upgrade to a suite is less than $20 then that should tell you of the quality of the room.) They didn't just put a hold on my $100 deposit.....they took it completely out & it's been almost 24 hours & neither me nor my bank can find the money despite what management says. I paid for the room upgrade with cash then they charged me for it AGAIN, along with other charges I'm still not sure of what they were for when I checked out. & the room was not satisfying. The 'suite' overlooked a roof of satellites then past that you could see the pool. & one of the tvs wouldn't even work. I do NOT recommend this place to ANYONE.
