Harrah’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino Review

Harrah’s properties have become my favorite Casinos over the years. When it comes to online casinos my first preference has always been bandarq online. That might have something to do with the fact that Celine was performing at Caesar’s for so long… But, I digress. There’s a certain atmosphere to Harrah’s properties that I enjoy; Their service, their locations, and their consistency.

When you pull up to Harrah’s, you’re greeted by a bellhop who will take your car to the Valet if you’re driving and/or take your bags; even if you’re being driven to the location. You’ll get a ticket for your luggage and head inside. Your luggage will be delivered to your room later. Or, if you’ve just a small amount, you can carry it yourself. It’s up to you. There’s a Joker theme at this location, so you’ll see those types of statues throughout the property. These become a photo op for a lot of people, so if you’re walking by one, watch out for the flow of foot traffic to suddenly stop.

As you reach the quaint reception desk, you’re promptly greeted by the kindest employees I’ve ever witnessed at a hotel. They care about how you’re doing (at least they sound as if they do) and are eager to ask you if there’s anything that they can do for you. No, they’re not just begging for tips, they are actually trained to be sincere, and this is a fantastic touch to start a relaxing vacation. Once you’ve received your room key, you’re on your way to the elevator to find your room. Zip up the elevator and jaunt down a hallway and you’ve reached your room. You’re going to be pleasantly surprised once you’re inside of your room, for even though the property is not the newest, it is kept up to make it seem like it is. The room is spotless. Small – if you’re in a classic room, but not really a big deal because you’re more than likely not going to be spending huge amounts of time inside of your room. The bed is so comfortable, clean and there is a large selection of pillows. You have an adequate amount of space to store your luggage and all of its contents, even for the individuals who over-pack.

The bathroom only enhances your stay here at Harrah’s. It, like the room, is spotless and seems like you’re the only person to have ever used it. There are plenty of nice touches such as the normal shampoo and conditioner, but they’re an upgraded brand and plenty of fluffy towels. Now, this brings us to the shower. The shower at Harrah’s is unlike any other that we’ve experienced in all of the different hotels we have stayed at in Las Vegas. The water pressure is phenomenal and the hot water never ends. This was, for me, the most enjoyable part of the room and was extra nice after walking around the streets of Las Vegas all day in the hot sunshine.

If you’re going to be going back to Vegas at any time, I really suggest getting a Rewards card at the Total Rewards desk. Sometimes, depending on the casino you’re in, an employee will come around and ask you if you want to sign up for one. If you want free rooms, free food, free money, I really suggest you say, ‘Yes.’ If you’re not familiar with the rewards card experience, it is just a card they give you with your name and rewards number on it and you use it at any slot machine or hand it over to any dealer at any of the games you’re playing. As you gamble, it racks up points that you can use for free food, free merchandise or, at a certain point, cashback. As you gamble with this card, different deals will pop up on the internet for you on the total rewards website. You will get offers for free or discounted rooms that the ‘general’ public wouldn’t get. You can also get points if you shop at any of Harrah’s stores. If you’re in the Celine store and want a shirt, give them your rewards card and you’ll get points for that as well. You can use this card – even though it has whichever casino’s name on it where you sign up – at any of the Harrah’s properties, including Caesar’s, Bally’s, Paris, etc. It is a great deal overall.

The Casino of Harrah’s, like its rooms, is extremely clean and laid out well. It isn’t crowded at all and there are plenty of game choices. It is a little darker than other casinos, but this wasn’t really a negative. Also, you cannot smell any smoke, even if someone is smoking next to you. The ventilation of this place is excellent and always smells like fresh air.

There is a Pool on the property, but I didn’t use it so I cannot review that part. I walked by it once, and it looked just like a normal pool at any other place. As I said, though, I didn’t use it so I can’t give it a proper rating.

If you’re not wanting to spend cab fare to roam around the town, Harrah’s properties offer a shuttle in between different Harrah’s properties for free. (Maybe give your driver a dollar tip, though!) This will get your closer to any of the other properties you want to walk into – even if they’re not Harrah’s owned – and back without having to spend a lot of money.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Harrah’s so much, I wrote them a lengthy letter thanking them for the good time I experienced while there. That doesn’t happen too often. The service was just so over-the-top exceptional, I felt it was necessary and well deserved.

There are a lot of different things to do in Las Vegas. Something for everyone. If you’re wanting to see a show, there are plenty of choices. Want to bring the kids? There are a lot of gaming places around, family-oriented things to do like the Coca-cola factory and plenty of stores for shopping. There really is something for everyone to do, even if you bring someone who isn’t a gambler and just wants to sightsee. You can visit Las Vegas several times a year and still not see everything! If you are going to sightsee, please bring some good shoes. Everything looks close, but they’re really very spread out. And, if you’re looking for a relaxing, central location to start your Las Vegas journey or a new place to try on your next vacation, give Harrah’s a try. You’ll be treated like royalty!

Note: For the pet lover’s out there who don’t want to leave their pups at home, the Harrah’s properties now offer pet rooms! Check their website or call for more information!
