    So I'm booking a room one night there in December and wanted to get some info. Are both of these rooms in the same tower? Just wanted to see if anyone has stayed there. It's rarely mentioned but it's just for a night and wanted to check out a new place. I'm going to book a King room regardless but I didn't know if one was more recently renovated. Also I'm curious which one is closer to the casino floor. Thanks in advance.

    The Deluxe Suite is in the Impanema tower. That elevator comes out to a short hallways that leads right into the table games.

    The Masquerade tower is is technically on the casino floor but there are only scattered slots on that side of the casino. It's a much further walk to the table games, sports bar, and Shutters bar. I've never stayed in the Masquerade trip but this past March I entered the room and immediately went back to the front desk to change. The room looked pretty beat up. That's not to say the Impanema tower isn't dated but I like it better. The couch feels less like patio furniture. The Masquerade tower was more recently renovated but it hasn't been recently from what I can tell.

    I actually really enjoy staying at the Rio. The craps dealers and the bartenders at the sports book are great.

    I play a lot of VP and some slots so it looks like I'll go with the Deluxe Suite. Thanks for the information.

    Good choice! While the Masquerade rooms tend to be nicer, the Ipanema tower's location is much better. Right by the table games, closer to the main entrance, and if you are self parking, the Carnival garage is much better to get to from Ipanema tower than the Masquerade garage is from the Masquerade tower.

    Here is a tip regarding the Ipanema tower elevators.....as you walk towards them, there are two sets. Stay to the left. For some reason, the majority of people tend to head for the right bank, which means the ones on the left are usually empty.

    It'd be worth asking for an upgrade to a Masquerade suite. I love those rooms. Usually the upgrade fee is $100/night, but you might get lucky mid week.

    I probably won't get that lucky but I'll check. Since I'm only there for the night I wouldn't pay the extra money for the room. I'm the kind of guy that doesn't care too much about a room as long as it's clean. It's worth a $20 try though. I'm going to be there Friday, December 11th. That's the last weekend of the rodeo so I'm probably lucky just to get a free room.

    Looking at that suite, holy cow. 1,600 square feet. I lucked out once at the Cal on 4th of July and was given a suite that was about 900 square feet. Perfect view of the Plaza fireworks show.
