The Skinny

Don't let the Mardi Gras theme fool you, Harrah's Las Vegas Hotel and Casino rarely, if ever, fills up with drunken college coeds taking off their tops for beads. Rather, it attracts a moderate crowd. The rooms are a good value for the location.

I've stayed at Harrah's both times I've been to Vegas. Check-in is easy, and the rooms, while not spacious, are very clean and have comfortable beds. I'm not a huge fan of the casino (just too bland for my tastes), but there are a ton of places...

Room Quality:

In the older tower (Mardi Gras) you will find the rooms to be standard-size, and have flat screens and better appointments. The newer tower (Carnival Tower) has smaller rooms. Bathrooms are plain; the tubs and showers are combined. The two bed rooms have two queens, way better than just two doubles. Views can be excellent if you swing a Strip view. The way Harrah's Hotel and Casino Las Vegas is laid out, however, there is a good chance to get a view of the other tower or the air-conditioning vents. The location, right across from several other major casinos in the center of the Strip, is hard to beat.

Service Quality:

Good. Harrah's Hotel and Casino Las Vegas sits right over the casino which is right on the Strip, so it's a short walk to other casinos and anywhere else on the property. The staff is pretty friendly. The parking structure in back is somewhat confusing to get in and out of. Check-in waits can be brutal at peak hours, so aim for before 3pm or after 10pm, if possible.

What You Get Bottles of in the Bathroom:

Shampoo, conditioner and lotion. It's decent quality stuff.

Clientele:

Young to middle-aged. They draw people with a moderate gambling budget who want a well-located hotel. The folks here mostly aren't flashy and they aren't tacky.

How's the Pool?

It's a big rectangle, surrounded by an sundry stand and a bar, where you can get a martini. The pool is not heated and is closed from October to March or April.

Resort Fee:

Shucks, there's resort fee at Harrah's Hotel and Casino Las Vegas as of $18 a night. The fee includes internet access for one device, local calls, and fitness center access for two people. 

Is it Worth It?

It's a pretty good deal, so if you're looking for an experience, it won't let you down. You can get a better deal on the Strip, but you can also pay more.

Table Games:

Harrah's Hotel and Casino Las Vegas has all the games. The feel is action-packed and exciting in there because so much happens around you. The dealers are more friendly than usual here. There is also a sports pit that combines lots of televised sports with blackjack and other games. Nothing like multi-tasking your gambling.

Bet Minimums:

They usually want $10 minimum in this place for blackjack and craps, but it can be higher on weekends. Roulette has $1 chips with a $10 minimum, and craps runs $10 and higher with 3-4-5x odds. Other games start at $10.

Machines:

From pennies up to at least $100. The Harrah's casino Las Vegas used to have these electronic roulette things that were fun, but they got rid of them (they do have a roulette wheel where you bet electronically, though).

Cocktails?

Good. The cocktail waitresses wear silly costumes (they all do) and deliver drinks with decent speed.

Who Gets Comps?

Table players may get food at $25 to $50 play for several hours. A room may be comped to $100 and higher players. Harrah's rewards loyalty.  More than any other casino, they comp you well for playing.

Number of TVs:

There are 42 flat-screens, two of which are big, in the "sports pit" which is a sports and race book, plus has table games and slots.

Number of Seats:

There are about 50 sports seats combined with table games to create something called the "sports pit".  To us, it's just sort of annoying and busy.  Hey, when we're watching curling we need to concentrate.

Number of Betting Windows:

Eight windows to serve everyone with money, whether you like sports or races or just the thrill of handing money to people on the other side of the counter.

Free Drinks?

No free drinks here, sorry Charlie.

Snack Bar?

A Nathan's Hot Dog cart is in the book, but find some Harrah's Hotel Las Vegas coupon codes for here, or anywhere else in Harrah's Las Vegas.

Other Notes:

The seats are nice, green leather (maybe vinyl, our fannies aren't sophisticated enough to feel the difference). The layout and lounge seating in the sports bok make it a very social room.

Number of Tables:

There are 12 tables, and more than half are usually running from afternoons on.

Comfort of Chairs:

Pretty dang typical. While the room is pretty nice, the chairs have no wheels or adjustments.

Closed Room or Open to Casino?

A truly closed room with two doors that let you out to the bathroom or sportsbook.  There are windows, though, so don't worry about feeling like you're playing in a closet.

Game Spreads and Limits:

Mostly Hold 'Em  of the no-limit variety, with limit games at $2-$4 and $3-$6.  They have a frequent mixed-games table at $4-$8, but they don't include Dogs On The Table as one of the choices.

Beginner Games or Classes:

Nope, but they get a lot of newbies and the dealers will help you catch up. Still, we don't recommend this for a beginner's room.

How Crowded is the Room?

There are 12 tables and usually not much of a wait.  They have a computerized wait list, but you'll rarely be on it longer than 20 minutes.

Comps?

Harrah's typical $1 an hour plus points on your Harrah's card to help you gain some fancy status.

How Good Are the Players?

On weekdays there are lots of tougher older guys who usually don't even pay to the see the flop. On weekends and late at night, the tourists flow in and the games can get ridiculously loose.  There are daily low-buy-in tourneys.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

Lots of TVs on the walls in this joint, all of which show sports.  The rake is steep at $5 max, so you'll have a hard time beating that at the limit games.  They have some very deep stack tournaments most days.

Harrah's Las Vegas Guest Rooms

Classic / Luxury

Classic / Luxury

These rooms are pretty standard. You get a king or two queen beds, a bathroom, everything you need to come home after a night out in Sin City. Every TV comes with movies and video games and most rooms come with a minibar as well. All good things in proportion...unless you're in Vegas. That's what we always say. The Luxury rooms are an upgrade from the Classic, but with a view of The Strip that may be worth the upgrade, if a view of Vegas is what you're looking for. Find some Harrah's Hotel Las Vegas coupon codes before you book your room.

Mini Suite

Mini Suite

Starting at 500 square feet, these suites each come with one king bed. This suite is perfect for a couple on their weekend getaway or special event. Spread out and enjoy 24-hour room service in the cozy seating area, which includes a table and chairs for 2. There's a minibar in most rooms. Bathrooms have a marble shower/tub combination and granite counter tops, pretty fancy. 

Deluxe Executive Suite

Deluxe Executive Suite

Starting at 680 square feet, these suites each offer a separate bedroom with one king bed. If you're traveling with a group or entertaining guests, the separate seating area has couches and tables, as well as a full wet bar with a sink and refrigerator. Stock up the minibar and empty it the same night. Then relax in style in the jetted tub, by yourself or with the whole group. Hey, it's up to you!

Reasonable Across the Board

I've stayed at Harrah's both times I've been to Vegas. Check-in is easy, and the rooms, while not spacious, are very clean and have comfortable beds. I'm not a huge fan of the casino (just too bland for my tastes), but there are a ton of places to eat. In particular, the buffet is excellent and Toby Keith's bar is pretty cool. The location, as mentioned, is one of the best in Vegas, and you can get to a ton of places by foot in 10 minutes or less.
