Too many other Vegas hotels
Posted Jun 18, 2016
Stayed in a wraparound Bellagio view suite. We couldn't check in with our early check-in, even though we were 'VIP's' and I had to call to make it happen until after 5 PM!
We had dinner reservations at 6, so this posed a problem.
When we got to the room, it reeked of bacon and the sliding glass doors were open, so the temperature was warm. Someone stole our 'do not disturb' sign the second day off our door and the maid service came when we didn't want them to - but they weren't good at all - no attention to detail and they just didn't clean very well. Nevertheless, we didn't request it anyway, so be it.
Scarpetta was the highlight - I'd highly suggest that place. They were wonderful and the food was great.
STK - AWFUL. For what you pay, I'd expect something out of this world. My father's steak was leather, my dish was the most overcooked fish with a horrible sauce and raw greens on top. I could go on and on about how everything was wrong with STK, but this is about the hotel, so let me get back to that.
The casino. No. The first dealer we had on blackjack - which by the way, this was my son's 21st birthday - was HORRIBLE. No eye contact with us -he just gazed around the hotel with a sarcastic look upon his face and acted like he hated us. When I asked him what the book says about a scenario, he ignored me. I have been going to Vegas for over a decade and have played many tables and he was a nightmare. And, this continued - it wasn't just this dealer. Nightmare!
