Reserved a suite months in advance for an event. Room was not ready when promised. I was told I could get ready for the event in a public bathroom and check my bags.

For a place that advertises blackjack alley we were there midweek mid day and there was one table open. Meh. I was expecting more. It wasn't too smokey and the dealer was very quiet. Not a great blackjack atmosphere.
