Was in town for a job related meeting and stayed over at the Rio for three nights. I don't give CET much business anymore, but the rooms were comped and I still have plenty of credit there so it is hard to pass up for a short stay. Room was surprisingly nice, clean and had a great view of the pool and strip. Typical CET frustrations kick in at that point a) $24 per day, plus tax resort fee and on top of that they charged me $1.25 for an 800 call b) shower had very low water pressure and, even with hot at full blast, was lukewarm c) VP on the bar top pays 6:5 for double double d) a personal issue, they don't even offer Canadian Club whiskey if you are at the tables (not on the menu anymore). I will say the staff were much more friendly that usual so that is a plus. The biggest issue I had was at 7am on Saturday (Kentucky Derby Day) the only place to get breakfast was Hash House. Even though I could get it comped, breakfast for $20 is not that appetizing especially when their approach is quantity versus quality of food. The American Grille had a sign that it opened at 11am and the deli opened at 8. The Starbucks cart was open with a line. Thankfully the buffet is no longer open for breakfast...now if they would only close for lunch and dinner it would spare the uninitiated the horror of eating there. A lot of the dining options on the first and second floor at the opposite end of the casino are closed...not much action going on down there. Went to the CG for the day on Friday. Everything there was great colored by the fact that I hit a royal. Good meal at the steak restaurant and the bars and sportsbook was very busy. All in all, if it's free...I can still put up with a few days sleeping at a CET property but, eating and gambling will occur somewhere else...so day they may catch on but, the offers keep rolling in.
