Do they have coffee pots in the room?
I did have one in my "mini suite" as they called it on the platinum floor in the north tower.
I did not have one in the South Tower earlier this month.
I can't remember one being in the north tower last year.
I did not have one in my north tower suite last year.
when the total rewards had that $200 for 5 days deal i called and they said they dont have coffe pots, fridge, micro in rooms or for request
never had one in my south tower regular rooms.
Thank you! I guess I'll pack my little one cup brewer...
So speaking of coffee... How is the hotels coffee shop rank? I think it's called Java Coast. Not sure if that's a brand name or just the shops cute name.
How is the coffee? Espresso, pastries? Is there a huge mob of people in the mornings/ late mornings? How is the distance from the elevators to the shop?
I think that is the kiosk facing Flamingo Rd? ITs not bad, priced a little more reasonable than Starbucks, but not as good. Guess you get what you pay for. No long lines to deal with either.
And I stand corrected, the better half reminded me that it was not Ballys that we had the coffe pot in our suite, it was CP.
Wonder if it's the same Java Coast that they have in the community colleges here in Warren/Clinton Township, MI? If so, they are worth it!
Java Coast is a chain, but if you take a walk towards the south tower you'll find Nosh. It has great food and really strong coffee. It's worth the walk from the north tower.
Some time ago I was told that many vegas hotels do not have coffee makers in their standard rooms because they have to wash the pots every day. That does make sense because it would be a big job. It would explain why some places like the Coast Casinos have gone to the 1 cup coffee makers.
I usually take an extra carry on and bring my own coffee maker if I am staying in places that don't have one. That way I can spend the morning more leisurely in the room without rushing down to lose money waiting for coffee in the casino. Cocktail service is usually bad in the early morning anyway unless you play video poker at the bar.
If you're asking about the one near the registration desk, my experience is that there aren't usually that many there lining up for coffee there and the line moves pretty fast. A small cup is $3 and IMO their coffee sucks. McDonald's coffee is much better.
I haven't tried Nosh.
The "Diamond" rooms in the North Tower seem to all have coffee pots. They are one cup deals and they supply paper cups to drink with.
No problem then. Looks like I'm taking my French Press, a hot pot, and my own grounds. With my giant mug.
