Hooters Casino in Las Vegas

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Firstime Caller, May 2, 2008.

  1. Has anybody ever stayed there? I've been in the casino, and it seems nice enough. It's relatively new.

    Usually, I stay in the North Tower in Bally's but it's a little expensive for the weekend I'm thinking of going.

    Hooters seems to have a pretty good mid-strip location. But I was just wondering if anybody out there could tell me how it compares to, say, Bally's. I've stayed in Luxor, Caersar's (got a good deal), Paris and Bally's. All those were fine. Tropicana was ok. I wouldn't want the place I stay to be worse than Tropicana.

    Also, Hooters seems to have a cheaper Bungalow room and a more expensive Tower room. So, if you've been, could you specify which one you're talking about?

    Is this casino delightfully tacky?

    Yet unrefined?

    I wouldn't consider it a mid-strip location, at least not any more. With the Strip expanding (at least in terms of the renovations) North, the middle of the Strip has become Caesar's or at least, the Bellagio.

    It's always been a dream of mine to take Hooters Air to some exotic location. Seriously.

    Hooters is next door to the Tropicana to the East, on Tropicana Avenue, not the Strip, kind of across the street from the back end of the MGM. I popped in there for an evening about 14 months ago and thought the place was a hole. The first indication is the Tahiti Village booth at the entrance of the casino. That's a time-share spiel.
    The place was dead, the dealers and waitresses were not Hooters quality. The table limits were slightly high, it took forever to get a drink and when it came, it was in a flimsy, small plastic cup, like those you usually find in hotel bathrooms.
    I didn't like the place and I usually stay at the Tropicana, which is a low-roller, older Strip hotel.

  8. Yeah, you're probably right. It is a bit south for my taste locationwise. (I LOVE Bally's location.) But, like I said before, unfortunately, Bally's is a little expensive the weekend I'm thinking of going.

    Wow, SoCalDude, you thought it was that bad? When I went the limits were $5 on the craps. Maybe I'll just stay at Tropicana. Both times I've stayed at Tropicana, I reserved just the cheapest room - I think it's the Garden room. The first time, I got there really late (like 3am) and they put me in a room in a tower just off the casino floor. I think it was the Paradise tower. That was nice enough, and I was pleasantly surprised. The next time, I was put in an Island tower room, and I could tell it was a little less nice - as in I could just crash there and be ok, but I would have prefered if the room had been a little nicer. (There were chips in the tub and some mildew in the grout in the bathroom.) Have you ever stayed in the Garden room?

    What are the rates like for New York, New York and the Luxor? I've stayed at both and NYNY is really, really nice. I loved the feel of the place from top to bottom and the location is smack dab in the middle of everything you could want to do. As for the Luxor, the room we got was decent, but the hotel as a whole I thought was a downgrade from NYNY.

    Can't go wrong with anything on the Strip though. I mean, if this is a trip for fun, of course, you shouldn't spend much time in the hotel room anyway. :)

    How much are you looking to spend, and how soon are you going?

    As a casino, Hooters is awful. However, a friend was really pleased with his room quality there for the price. If the dollars are different enough to make up for the somewhat inconvenient location, do it and just spend zero waking hours there.

    Is the Luxor the pyramid-shaped one with the view of the airport? My wife and I stayed there a few years ago...liked it a lot, except for the time share fuckers all but assaulting us between the casino and the elevators. I never stayed at NYNY, but it always looked a bit tacky and a bit cramped to me. Could just be that I live in the NYNY burbs and have no interest at all in traveling 2,000 miles to stay there.
