    That's a bummer about the shuttle. I found Bally's to be a reasonable substitute for Bill's as a pick up point. It's pretty easy to walk through Bally's compared to CP.

    Oh well. Not surprised about the Cortez Room rumour, that place closes really early compared to the rest of the Casino.

    Same here. I was in town March 6 thru 10th and caught the Sam's shuttles from Downtown to Sam's and then on to Harrahs. From there I marched to Bally's and caught the shuttle to Gold Coast/Orleans and then did a backwards track after going to the movies and gambling a bit.

    I guess now things will be different?

    I'm wondering if the shuttle drops you off at the same place that limos use for the Forum Shops? I have been to this area one time a few years ago: my group was headed south on the strip and just past the crosswalk at Harrah's and the entrances into Mirage and the Forum Shops, our limo turned into a tunnel that went underneath the shops. The driver dropped us off at a place that was a short walk (10 steps) to an elevator which took you to the main floor and we were right across from the Palm Restaurant and another short distance into Caesars casino.

    There is a blog post on the dining changes at GC on Vegaschatter. It says the Cortez room is scheduled for rebranding. It does not suggest that they are going away from fine dining or a steakhouse altogether. I am disappointed but will wait and see. As for the cafe, I don't understand why they would kill the buffet when they have a perfectly crappy TGIF they can pull out.

    Also, don't forget that all the old Coast casinos are going to see changes, based on other Vegaschatter reports.

    The Gold Coast shuttle does use the underground drop off area. You go inside and up the escalator to emerge close to The Palm restaurant. It was nowhere near as convenient for us as the Bally's stop.

    I spoke to the driver, who told me that this route had only been in place for a couple of weeks and they had had mixed reviews from customers. He also said it was supposed to be permanent, but so was the change a couple of years ago when it moved to Tropicana.

    Thanks for the investigative reporting Pebbles. Most I hear from are upset with the change as it apparently is very confusing to be at the Forum Shops.

    No more Coast shuttles to/from Ballys

    Just returned from Vegas weds night after 5 (of 7) day stay at Ballys. I discovered that the Ballys to/from Gold Coast to/from Orleans shuttle has changed locations. The strip location for the coast shuttle is now the Forum shops valet location. Not sure why the change but the forum local is covered!!

    You're welcome Dewey.

    We move from Tuscany to Orleans on Monday, and this change has made it less convenient for us. Never mind, we will ride the bus from Tuscany to Gold Coast and catch the shuttle there. It will probably be a shorter walk but a bit more bag handling. We will just have a carry on each, so no big deal.

    If I find any more news, I will let you know.
