The hotel feels very dated. We visited about 15 other hotels on the strip and they all felt more up to date and newer than the Stratosphere. It's quite dark in the casino compared to other hotels so some better lighting (and friendlier croupiers)
would be good. Safe's in the rooms would be good too.
My overall stay was OK I had a few situations that could have went better my flight arrived at 9 am and was not able to check in till 3 and I did not want to walk around with my bags I tried to check in early and pay extra but was unsuccessful so
I waited around for hours for them to finally let me check in to a different room which could have been done earlier and later found out I could leave my bags at the bell desk but registration clerk never told me when they knew I just wanted to leave my bags other than that it was Ok would rather stay in a closer hotel to down town next time
Room had defects. Old room not remodeled new rooms not same as pics on web site.and the rate is for the old rooms. Electric issues in room we had. Changed and paid more for a suite which was excellent. Then dinner in steak house had a slack waiter
had togoto bar get our own drinks. Seems like a lower end crowd there too. Lotta riff raff.also security thinks they are bounty hunters...some of the things we saw were mind boggling.i will never ever stay there again.and its 2 miles from the strip. Have to walk taxi or bus to the rest of whats happening in vegas...however the tower is cool and only that is worth seeing once. This hotel has a rep of drama from the locals.
We loved our hotel room it was clean and the room was clean.... the pool was great though I wish there was more shaded areas... Our only negative was the distance you had to walk to get to the main part of the strip...
this hotel is right in the middle of the action between the main vegas strip and freemont street, a car rental is recommended but is not essential since there are buses that takes you from and to the hotel to the strip and freemont st.. the only
thing the rooms in this hotel need is a small refrigerator but other than that this hotel will give you the best service for less price than many other hotels
