We got to the airport in great time. Checked in and all was well. Flight took off approx. 40 min. late and we slept almost the entire way there. We had a wheelchair waiting for my daughter to take us to baggage. The Rio limo driver was waiting but it took over an hour to get our bags!! Not the way to start our trip. My daughter was starving, thirsty etc. The others in our party ( who came in on another flight) were supposed to land after us, they arrived before us, got their limo and were at the Rio over an hour prior to us..... We checked in and received the coveted Masquerade suite. Room 28001 and 28002. We could not however check in until after 4:00 pm. My daughters scooter was there waiting for her at the Diamond check in. After a little schooling she managed to handle it quite well. We all went to San Paolo (sp?) for some eats. The place was freaking crammed with people ( the WSOP had generated quite a lot of foot traffic) Our waitress was about 900 years old and not very attentive ( who could be???) Even with our 7 Stars card on the table it took over an hour to get our food and they still forgot my husbands order......hmmmm. The waitress tells us we should complain to the manager and she points him out to me. I very nicely tell him that if it is going to take this long to be served that they should hold the door. Well he comped the whole meal and we were off to get our room keys. I hit for $ 300.00 on the way ( my ONLY hit of the entire trip). The room: What can I say about the Masquerade suite?? It is awesome. Living room with very comfy couch, 2 sitting chairs and lounge chair and ottoman. A DR with round table and 6 chairs, wet bar and credenza. The master suite is large with a sofa, writing desk/chair etc and the Bathroom is HUGE. We loved the jacuzzi tub with a view to die for. The floor to ceiling windows were nice ( although very dirty) but we could not keep the curtains open during the day as it would increase the temp in the room 15 degree's in a matter of minutes. At night tho the view was breathtaking. We went downstairs and watched the parade/show, a good show and different from the last time we were there. We checked out the hotel/casino with everyone and then the kids and some of the party went up to the room to sleep. Hubby and I went to gamble some. As I said earlier I will not hit anything of significance the entire trip. Hubby has some luck and we get back to the room about 2 am. More to come later. Hopefully I won't do 5 entries !!
