Just checked in to the Rio for the first time in a year. Booked the base room (COMP) and $20 tip at VIP check in got me Samba. Cool enough. That said, there's definitely been belt tightening: The Kuerig *and* the Mini bar are completely gone. Perhaps it was a case of chicken and egg there, but I noticed that change immediately. There are no real glasses in the room, only what formerly served as the disposable coffee cups. Crown Theater is vacant, which makes Masquerade Village seem even creepier. I'll update if I notice anything else. Here til Friday!
