Location not great, but price was

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 19, 2003

I really wanted to stay in the MGM, Luxor or something plush, but as it was a flying one night visit to Vegas, my head ruled and said that it would be a total waste to pay out for one of them, so the Riviera it was. Room price was great at $75 per room.

Not impressed with the hotel though. Arrived at 7pm (ish) after flying in and being in a rush to get out, and had to queue for an HOUR to check in (I queued less at the airport to get there). They had 1 position open for check in (and 3 for check out ironically enough) and only opened more right at the end of my queuing. Staff were abrupt and seemed not to care.

Rooms and corridors were very tired looking but average 2 double beds and bathroom. Usual Cable TV and air conditioning which took AGES to get temperature down below 80F - it was unbearable at first. Had a nice view over the pool. Hotel is very big (and is quite small compared to some!) so long walks to some rooms should be expected.

Location was quite poor - see below for more detail.

Would recommend for somewhere adequate (very 3* and only just that) to dump bags and get out (if you don't mind a walk or have transport). If you are looking for an extravagant Vegas night, pay a little more and treat yourself to one of the plush hotels on the strip.

Directions: It's on the strip if we are getting technical, but the strip is long and most of the action is the opposite end. The only good thing is that it's close to the Stratosphere. It took about an hour to walk to the MGM. I'd recommend somewhere more central.

Riviera nice hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 25, 2003

i think it is difficult because most of the hotels look great from outside.
but the inside of the rooms was great. one thing i didnot like was that we could check in at 16.00 and not earlier but we could bring our lugage to the room earlier so that was good. in the meantime we bought a cocktail we could keep the glasses. we have them as a souvenir.
riviera has more buildings. so it look if it is not that big.

Unique Quality: it is on the strip

We stayed at the Riviera, adequate without being spectacular. The Bellagio looked impressive, but so do they all.
Our room averaged at $46 per night for the two of us. Room prices vary depending on what's on in town. weekends tend to be much more expensive. most places do not allow you to book in on Saturday.

Directions: Do try to stay on the 'strip' if possible, otherwise you are too far away from the action.

The Rio is a terrific place to stay if you have a car. Every room is a suite complete with a huge window for enjoying the fantastic view. It has a nice pool and several hot tubs. It also has one of the best buffets in Las Vegas.

The only drawback for the Rio is that it is a few blocks off the strip, so you have to take a shuttle or drive to get to the strip.
