The Las Vegas Trip
Posted Mar 15, 2017
My wife and I traveled to Las Vegas for my brother's marriage to his girlfriend of five years. To save a bit on the expense, we didn't stay at the same hotel as my brother, but booked nearby through Travelocity at the Excalibur. We had a wonderful trip, all in all, but the hotel itself was disappointing. The room was clean, neat, and of a nice size. The beds were good. However, as with I think all LV hotels... NO COFFEE POT in room. That is a pain. And there was a small coffee outlet on the main floor, worked by only ONE EMPLOYEE to serve a line-ful of coffee-hungry guests. NOT a good practice. The restaurants on the main and second floor were not inviting-looking and the staff in the one we walked into were down-right rude. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the place is smoke-infused. People smoke everywhere. There was no safe spot except for in one's own room, and since there is no refrigerator or coffee provided in the room, that was not a real option. Oh! They have three or four pools, yet keep the best and biggest of them closed so the other pools are crowded. Not the most enjoyable. Excalibur needs to update or just be a relatively poor hotel with a large dark and smelly casino.
