Not sure if anyone is interested but thought I would toss out a few pics of the Harrahs St. Louis. Our room was in the 'new' tower - or the pricier tower if you are going along those lines. They are very focused on 'Diamond' at this location. I couldn't really figure it out until I discovered you HAD to be playing a card to play. Had to swipe it when you go into the casino, where you are then making a pact with the bible belt State of Missouri that you will not lose more than $500 each two hours. I actually had to get a card with a signature strip on the back that I signed to that effect. Well, then it became easy to figure out that anyone that gambles with any frequency would become a Diamond member quite easily because you basically have to always have your card in or most of the machines would not even accept your money. I spent a few hours each of 3 evenings in the casino. 1st & 2nd night equaled out - 3rd night was a nightmare. However, during those 3 nights (playing penny & 2 cent machines at normally $1/spin) I did accrue about 1000 Tier Credits and about $30 in food comps. I thought they added up pretty well for about 9 hours of play at my low rate, and if this were a casino near my home I would be Diamond by about April Fools Day every year, LOL!!! We did normal tourist things such as Arch, ballgame, Grant's Farm, Brewery Tour, Union Station, Ted Drewes frozen custard, Waffle House breakfast, etc. It was hot and sticky for most of the trip. The buffet for breakfast at Harrah's was awesome. It was $8.99 during M-S. I believe around $18 or $19 for Sunday. We ate one morning and were stuffed. Very impressive and a beautiful buffet facility. And I apologize for the mess in the room. We were too tired when we got in there to take pics right away! Very easy to apply my comps at check-out and the only thing that was not covered was internet for some reason. In Vegas I am normally able to apply my comps to that. Also it appeared in Missouri that even for comped food items we had to pay sales tax - which you don't in Vegas. Unless she boo-booed on my bill - but it was only a few bucks for the snack bar and the buffet. Tub to right, vanity straight in, shelves behind door & toilet in its own closed door section to left of vanity. Bathroom was huge. Chandeleir in hotel lobby entry Long hallway to Casino - stores, ice cream, snack bar, buffet area, players club all before you get to Casino. Hotel elevators are a short way down on right. Diamond Check-In area, however it was never open - they ran them at a separate line at normal counter Outside the hotel entry - the other entry is near the casino & buffet area. And the most winning sight of the trip......... If anyone has any questions, yell away. I won't bore you with pics or details of the entire trip as it isn't Vegas related, however, if someone wants the link I can share the entire album with you.
