Pretty okay. As a birthday treat my husband and I stayed in the King Whirlpool room. It was clean, very nice linens, bottled water, a keurig and bathrobes. Check in and out was very smooth and all of the staff was courteous and helpful. We ate in the little cafe downstairs and bought a cheesecake which we shared in our room. Why am I only giving it three stars? Because for a room that costs over $300, it should be nicer. Everywhere, you can smell smoke. It's definitely less apparent in the non smoking rooms, but is detectable. The bed was creaky and a bit stiff- felt either old or cheap. The dust ruffle was very wrinkled. The bathroom had a nearly empty roll of toilet paper, and no replacement. The robes were thin, and kind of worn down. I get that these seem like small issues, but when you're buying the top room, I expect not to see the cracks in the facade so easily. It's a fun stay, but it's still a casino, and is still kind of a cheap experience.
