    Hi! This will be my 3rd time staying at HRH but first time staying at the
    Tower part. Anyone had any experience with those suite
    rooms? My last stay I was disappointed with my room
    (even on a comp; still! Lol). Hope the upgrade on my comp
    will be worth it. Thanks.

    If you're referring to the HRH Tower, they're the nicest rooms on property. My guess is you previously stayed in the Casino Tower, which has the nice french-doors that open and a pretty large room, but a very small bathroom and those rooms have been partied in pretty hard. The Casino Tower was opened with the rest of the place in 1995 or so... the HRH and the Paradise Tower opened in 2010. The Paradise Tower rooms are much better than the Casino Tower rooms as well, but not to the level of HRH Tower. Paradise Tower has it's own parking garage off of Paradise and there's a stop light there now, making things easy, but it's a long-ass walk into and out of the casino area.

    The HRH Tower is on Harmon and has it's own valet, parking garage, check-in, elevators, etc., so if that's where you're staying, don't go to the main check-in, else you'll have to walk all the way through the casino to get there. The rooms/suites (though purists maintain they're not suites cause there, no door on the bedroom, whatever) have a large bathroom with large soaking-tube and a separate shower you can have a party in. They have a nice-sized sitting area on one side and bedroom side on the other with a TV tower in the middle with 2 42" flat screens on either side of it. I prefer one of the four-(4) corner rooms on each floor, as they're at the end of the hall, so they're the quietest and have two-(2) walls of windows, instead of just one-(1). Be sure to get above the 8th floor (16 floors total) if you're on the airport view side (odd numbered rooms), else you'll be looking into the side of the parking-garage. If you have a pool view room, get above the 4th floor for best view.

    Click the video for a tour of the room... they ALL look like this, though this is a corner room as mentioned above:

    (If you get one of the rooms with 2 Queen beds, it'll have a couple sliding doors that separate the sleeping area from the sitting area.)

    Hope you have a GREAT time!

    Thanks smart one! You saved me quite a hassle as
    they failed to tell me about separate check in area when I
    booked it. Yes the room I had last year had been partied in
    pretty hard and had a blind housekeeper apparently! Just sayin!
    Also checking in sucked and was inefficient and
    a lengthy wait. If you're at the hard rock I'll buy you a cold one for helping me out!
    4/15 to 4/20!

    Ha! We're planning on seeing Pat Benatar on the 18th, so that might be possible! Just be sure it's the HRH Tower you're booked in, cause the Paradise Tower is also 16 floors, but doesn't have a separate check-in and if you are at the HRH Tower check-in, but find out your room is in Paradise, you have to walk like half way to N. Las Vegas to get there!

    No I'm positive it's HRH tower so cool! The walk won't be too bad there right?
    I'm going to Pat Benetar too and probably the Pink Taco before
    the show! Message me and you got one on me!
    I'm excited; I saw PB years ago and she rocked it!

    One of the things I love most about the HRH Tower is that the check-in is steps away from valet and the elevator is steps away from check-in and when you come back down my favorite bar (Luxe Bar) is steps away from there. Don't get me wrong, you can certainly cruise and do some walking' if you please, but for the most part, I could stay happy in the HRH Tower area.

    I'm more excited to go with this info! Thanks!
    How's your luck been at the HRH?
    First 2 times playing there I did pretty well, the last trip
    I went there nothing paid out, it was abysmal!
    Hope it'll be looser this time!

    I'll be staying there in June. I hear they're pretty picky about bringing liquor up to your room? Any truth to that? I haven't had that issue in other casinos.

    I brought a bottle of Goose, a 6 pack and OJ delivered from Vons back to my room and had no problem.

    If you play video poker be warned, they stripped all the good pay tables on the lower denom machines.

    They have signs up at the entrances and exits about outside food and beverage, but for the most part, unless you're using a luggage cart to haul a keg and a couple ice-chests up to your room (yes... people do it) you can accomplish it. Just be discreet.

    I hope you folks that are doin' the Pat Benatar concert have a BLAST... we've had to change our plans and now won't be in town then... have to be a good son and visit my elderly mother and a sick mother in law.
