Nothing special

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 16, 2014

I may have liked this hotel better if I gamble, but I just needed a place to stay until my flight to Hawaii 2 days later. The nearby places to eat were a little pricey and it was very confusing walking around the exterior of the hotel. Also, the whole hotel smells like cigarette smoke thanks to the casino. And smoking was allowed in the pool, people were flicking ashes into it. And they closed the pool extremely early. One good thing, there were shuttles to the other hotels nearby to get to their buffets. Central Location on the strip. On the day I left, they got me a good deal to get to the airport in a shuttle. Perhaps you could even call them ahead of time to get their shuttle to pick you up when you arrive. It was much cheaper than a taxi.

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2011

We had a view of the pool & the outdoor bar Carnaval Court on 9th floor. The bar does not shut down till 4 am & music is extremely loud. The walls are paper thin. You can even hear the toilets being flushed. The people going up & down the hallway is easily heard too. The thermostats are programmed to go no lower than 65, it only got down to 72 for our entire 6 day stay in Aug. It was uncomfortably hot. The pillows were horrible. The last night of our stay a fight broke out in the room right next to ours between 3 males at 3:30 am. I had to call security twice & it took them 2 1/2 hours to decide to kick them out. Needless to say we didn't get much sleep. No consideration was given to us, the troublemakers should have been kicked out right away. So not to be totally negative the room was clean & housekeeping was good. We will not stay here again.

Unique Quality: The hotel is located in the middle of the strip which is good. However I'd rather walk farther if it means being able to sleep in a cool & quiet room. Housekeeping does come in even if you leave your room at 11 am.

Please read before staying here!!!

First time in Las Vegas. I booked 4 nights with Harrah's because of the price and good reviews. After my $35 cab ride from airport to the hotel, I stood in line for about an half an hour to check-in. The check-in lady was nice and the rooms were nice for the price. Everything went well there until after the 3rd night. When waking in the morning after the 3rd night, I was horrified when I saw that there was what looked like brown dried stuff and blood about the size of a small dinner plate in the middle of my bottom sheet. I established that there is NO way I did that!! I was the only one who slept in the bed. Why didn't I see the mess before? Was the stain there the entre 3 nights I slept there? And why didn't the cleaning lady see it and change the sheets? I called the manager and the housekeeping manager came and looked at it. I told him the story and he said "that's unacceptable, what do you want me to do"? I said you can start by giving me new sheets! That is all that was said. I figured at the least they would send me a apology message or give me a free dinner or something. I went to check out the next day. The check-out lady was so rude to me for no reason and told me there was no shuttle service going to airport (I found out later there was and took it). After that I brought up the incident of my dirty bedding. The manager came over and I explained to him what happened and how disgusting it was. He asked me why I never saw it the 3 days before. I told him that I didn't know why. Nothing else was said and the 2 of them looked at me like I was crazy. I have lived in Asia and have traveled extensively and have never seen this and have never been treated like this by a hotel.

This is another great Harrahs hotel in Las Vegas. Whenever I visit the USA, I usually end up with a stay at the end or the beginning in Las Vegas - I LOVE THE VEGAS!!!

On my original trip, I took up a Harrahs loyalty card for their Total Rewards programme and I now get some good deals on room rates for my stays. If you are going to visit Las Vegas on anywhere near a regular basis (and that can be as little as one per year), it's well worth joining up.

This hotel is centrally located for getting around all the great locations on The Strip with Caesar's Palace and the Bellagio opposite and the Flamingo and Venetian to either side.

Rooms are spacious (are most are in Las Vegas) and the hotel has great facilities with a good selection of restaurants.

Unique Quality: Rooms have the usual facilities including stocked bathroom, TV, table with chair, etc.

In the value for money stakes Harrah’s is a winner due to its excellent location mid-Strip. Being a smaller property it’s not far from the lifts to the Strip and fairly easy to find your way around. It’s also handy for going further afield as there are a number of bus bays out the back where free shuttles and buses stop. There is also a tram station that takes you to MGM Grand at one end of the line and the Sahara at the other. The rooms aren’t large but they are perfectly acceptable with comfortable beds and a fully stocked bathroom. The casino has everything you would expect including a large Sportsbook. The Piano Bar has some fun late night entertainment and there is a good steakhouse.

Unique Quality: Just outside is Carnaval Court which has shops and stalls selling souvenirs and clothing plus an evening bar and live music.

We were given free bus passes to Harrah’s that was good the whole time we were there. They take you there and bring you back. That is awesome. We tried it and ventured into Harrah’s. Typical hotel and casino, but it seemed nice enough. We found us a really nice restaurant here called Ming’s table. We wondered around the casino for awhile and headed for the strip. This place was hopping and loads of people gambling and enjoying the sights in here. I will say it is really really smoky in here, so we headed for the strip.

It was a beautiful evening and we really enjoyed ourselves sightseeing.

I have to say that Harrahs is my favorite hotel in Vegas. At least my favorite that I can afford. There are tons of more beautiful, extravagant, new hotels but I feel i get my monies worth here. I have a players card from Harrah's/Rio and i cant say I gamble too much. it seems that even though i am not a high roller i get treat great here and I get alot of comps. I think that their players total rewards program is one of the best here in Vegas. I also found out that I can now use my players card in more hotels like the Paris and a few others, (i forgot the names). I have stayed at Harrah's or the Rio on a weekend for $39-69 a night. Or free on certain weekends and on weekdays. Like i said before, this is great because i am not a big gambler. They always send me free show tickets and free or discounts for their restaurants.
The rooms are very nice, clean, and staff is friendly. I have never had a bad experience here.

Harrah's major asset is it's location. It's right in the heart of the strip, across from the Mirage, next to the Venetian (and for the low-rollers, the Casino Royale.) Half of our party was in the Mardi Gras Tower, and the other was in the Carnival Tower. You want the Carnival Tower if possible, the rooms are slightly larger and in a little better shape. The rooms were quiet, and maid service was very good. Check-in lines can be long, and attitudes can range from great to surly (we encountered both.) Gifts and sundry stores are right near the elevators, which is convienent. The casino is large, but not particularly well laid out, so be sure to define meeting spots. Plenty of renovated dining options, running a little on the pricier side. You can get reasonable rates here, and the location makes it a place to consider.

Unique Quality: Right between Harrah's and the IP is a large bar / "night club" area. It's pretty loud, so try not to get a room overlooking this part of the grounds.

Loud, But Central Accommodations

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 28, 2005

When in Vegas there’s a hotel to fit every style and budget. Harrah’s is located in the middle of the Strip, making it a convenient destination for exploring all that Vegas has to offer. Harrah’s is one of the older hotels on the Strip but it’s middle-of-the-road in terms of quality and price. Once inside the Casino looks like any other, no real frills here. If you can find a deal on rooms here, great… but that can sometimes be a challenge depending on the time of year. Overall, I wasn’t terribly impressed by Harrah’s. It was probably the loudest hotel I’ve stayed in Las Vegas. The rooms were small, but adequately furnished. We were staying 4 to a room and had just enough space. The hotel walls are paper thin so we could hear everything going on all around us – next door, below, above and outside. Staying in the Mardi Gras Tower our “balcony” (read really narrow cement ledge with a railing) was directly above the pool and the outdoor bar. This time of year the pool was closed so noise there didn’t factor in, but the loud nightclub was going strong well into the night. Fortunately this didn’t affect us as we rarely arrived home until well after it closed. Our room was dirty when we checked in, leading to more disappointment with the facilities. Overall, it was just okay. If you are looking for something central on the Strip AND can find a deal then Harrah’s is fine, but it’s not worth paying the high rates you might sometimes encounter here.

Unique Quality: Harrah’s is located smack dab in the middle of Las Vegas Blvd. making it very convenient to access the entire Strip on foot. It’s also located next to some of the “cheaper” casinos (lower table limits) if that’s where you want to gamble. In the summer months they have a pool. Harrah’s also features a gym and spa, but like many of the casinos, charges a fee to use them.

Not a bad place to stay on the strip. Service is adequite, location great and there was actually quite a bit to do besides the casino. The buffets were so-so but not bad. Althogh the rooms are small and smoky, it was still fairly comfortable. I would recomend this hotel for those on a tighter budget and if you like to be in the middle of a very active area.

Unique Quality: Probably the best part of staying here is walking out to the blvd. right your near the Venition, TI and Mirage all a short walking distance. Out the left side a commons area, bar with live entertainment open air and a short walk to Ceaser's Palace.

Directions: Center of the Strip

Harrah's is owned by the same company as the Rio, just down the street. The place has the usual amenities of a Strip hotel- the casino, the buffet, etc. It also has La Playa Lounge, which has a beach theme to it and an outdoor area by the pool where bartenders sing, dance and breathe fire.

Do not eat at Flavor buffet

Whether it's personal or a business trip, we have always ending up eating at Harrah's for your famous "Prime Rib, great selection, and friendly services" at the buffet. I have eaten many, many time at Harrah's buffet since I started traveling. On March 12, 2013, at around 8:15pm, My wife and I was eating at your Harrah's Flavor buffet, Las Vegas. My shocking and disappointment was overwhelm. As we were seated by our server, Adrian, he was very nice and courteous. After he greeted us with warm welcome and gotten our drinks, my wife and I went to grab our plates and went directly to the prime ribs. I greeted the gentleman behind the prime rib station and he didn't look at me. I assume he didn't hear me; so I repeated myself with another greeting and asking him if I can have a slice of prime rib and one for my wife also. He pick up the knife and started to carve, put it on our plate and left. I was very surprise of his service. As my wife and I walk down the buffet table, I notice the many food were old, as of looked dried; very dried. There were sauce all over the counter and dried out. I know the counter hasn't been wiped for quit sometime.

As we went back to our table, I told my wife, I just notice how thin our prime rib was. I took the napkin under our fork and knife and put it side by side; the prime rib we got was a third the thickness of our dinner napkin. Only a great chef can slice a piece meat this thin.

The first piece of the prime rib was as tough as a horse shoe. After finishing our first plate we went back for our a seconds, This time I saw them changing over to a new loaf of prime rib. As I got there, the server behind the counter had just left and was talking to two other co-workers in a form of a circle. They were loud and started to horseplay behind the counter, I then stood there for a few seconds to see if they notice me standing there at all; but they didn't. So I say, "excuse me, I like to get a slice of the rib please." They were so loud they didn't hear me. After the third time, one of them finally came over and carve me a slice (the second piece of the prime rib was as a tough as the first. Believe me, I know prime rib, I normally get six pieces before I stop).

As I was eating at the table, I told my wife this is the worst five star buffet I have ever eaten in. The people here are not friendly, the servers behind the food was too loose and playful in front of all the customers and had no regards of what customer needs or even know we were there. I told her I was going to get some ice cream and leave. As I went up to the dessert table, there were two employees talking and blocking the dessert table (one behind the counter and the other one was outside the counter). The dessert person saw me but just kept talking, I asked him if I can have a scoop of mango ice cream. The employee who was talking to the dessert person was actually sweeping the floor. He had the broom on his left hand and a dirty towel on his right. And with his right hand was leaning on the counter were my ice cream was going to be. And just before the two employees parted, they did a hi-five-potatoes over the dessert table before he scoop some ice cream.

Enough is enough, I thought I had seen everything. I went to the cashier at the entrance to asked for a "comment form." After filling out the form, giving the service an "F" and the quality of the food also an "F." I asked if I can speak to the manager. I forgot his name, but he was a tall African American gentleman whom I spoke to. And I told him besides our server Adrian, I was very disappointed regarding the rest of his food crew. He seem he knew about the situation and didn't care. No apology came out of his mouth nor at least ask me if there were anyway he or the staff could have done to improve my stay. I walk away slowly and see if he would call me back; but he didn't. If I was the buffet manager, I would have done anything to fix this problem before this going to "corporate" and to your "reviews." I believe he doesn't fit his position.
