              June  2010

              very nice hotel and when u book the room online tax is included no hidden fees , the price you see is the price you pay. the staff was very friendly and they even have complimentary shuttle service for you to go to the airport .it was a nice experience for the most part .

              the things i didnt like , was people smoking indoors, im a non smoker but it is a casio and who else goes to casinos but degenerate gamblers ,the thing that pisses me off about the hotel is i was about to get laid at 11:45 am and the concierge at the front desk completely messed up my chances of getting lucky my last night there, he told me i would have to pay an additional 35$ to have a person in the room i was already paying 85$ a night and i told the concierge that she wasnt staying the whole night and he said he didnt care 35$, i was kinda pissed off about i sent her in a taxi and paid for her ride ......they shouldnt charge people 35$ to have a visitor for 1 or 2 hours , thats complete bullshit !!!!!!! dont they get enough money from people that gamble in the casino !!!!
