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.
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.
Three and a half out of five, but this hotel has a strong and loyal following. Upscale Holiday Inn type rooms, satisfying buffet, with a large selection of fruit. Great breakfast.
Gambling....I've never won here, but hearing the shouts around me, obviously I'm doing it wrong. Everybody seems to be having a good time, all the time, and there appears to be little turnover in staff. I recognize many familiar faces each time I visit.
Unique Quality: Good restaurants abound.
Directions: great location, on strip, and minutes away from Caesars and The Venetian
Yes, it’s typically not people’s first choice when planning a trip to Vegas. And it’s usually not mine, either. But for some reason I keep ending up there. Maybe it’s the great prices I continue finding. Or maybe it’s the good service that I always have. Or it could even be the fantastic location that it offers. Or perhaps I just like the casino layout and the fact that there is a Ghiradeilli’s chocolate place next door. Who knows.
Unique Quality: The rooms are average, if not maybe a little bigger than the ones at Excalibur and MGM. It has a few decent places to eat, namely the 24 hour coffee house. It also has a fairly nice little bar. The buffet, The Fresh Market Buffet, has been revamped. The Club offers good incentives like free buffet meals and show tickets if you sign up, plus you can use the card at Bally’s, Paris, Caesar’s, Rio, and a few other places. The best thing about the hotel, however, is the location. You can walk right out the doors and onto the strip in a matter of minutes. Welcome to Vegas!
I know where I would like to stay (Mandalay Bay of course), but like millons of others I go to vegas to play not to sleep so I prefer to spend my money elsewhere so i like Harrahs its on the cheap side and right smack in the middle of everything

Could I be able to get ticket for the show the same day of the show?
Where can I buy them?
How dificult is it to get tickets?
If you can't get same day tickets you would probably be able to get 1 day advance.
You may want to e-mail the hotel.
There is a ticket booth on the south end of the strip by the Coca-Cola store that sells same day tickets. However, what is offered for the day is not announced until that day.
At Harrahs they hand out vouchers for The Mac King show. You get to see the show for the price of a drink which is $6.95 before tax. You should probably get there about an hour before the show starts.
