Historical Traveler Reviews Plaza Hotel & Casino Las Vegas
Very friendly and helpfull
I just got back from vegas (2Aug-6Aug 2003) we stayed at the plaza hotel and casino. The rooms were very clean and big, The staff was extreamly nice and helpfull, I didn't like the area too well the strip is much nicer but basically your in a hotel to sleep and get ready so it's worth it, we payed $29 a night. We had to move rooms on our last night because they had to fix the carpet, but they gave us a upgraded room, with free dinner and breakfast and free admission to a comedy club just to move! The pool is cool, it's on top of the building and you can see the mountains and strip from the hotel, there's also buses close by, and cabs, and shuttles that come to the hotel from the airport. If you planning on going to Las Vegas, I recommed renting a car, it's a long walk on the strip, and cabs can get expensive.
Rude & Inconsistant Info at Desk
Stayed Jully 25 03. We usualy go 2 to 3 times a year. Each time we go the service seems to get worse. This time the help was rude and unhelpfull to say the least. Won't stay there again.
Great time at the Plaza
My wife and I just stayed at the Plaza (june 15-17, 2003) and had a fantastic stay. We had a one bedroom suite which was terrific (I booked it through Orbtz and got a great rate of $58.00 per night). The furniture and carpet looked brand new, and it appeared to have been just painted. We were on the 22nd floor and had a great view of the strip. The suite was nicely appointed and very comfortable. The staff was friendly from check in to ceck out. Had a excellent dinner at the Center Stage over looking Fremont Street. I especially liked the casino because it has that "Old Vegas" look and feel. We go to Vegas about every other month and this is the first time we stayed Downtown. To me Dowtown IS Las Vegas and we will definatly return and stay at the Plaza. I absolutly recomend it.
Not too bad
I visit las vegas approx. 5 times a year and we always stay at the Luxor or Alladin. I decided to stay downtown this time because of the Jazz festival. I was very happy with my room and the service. The food was so-so but it was what I expected. I would stay at the Plaza again and would recomend it to anyone who wants a decent room at a great price. I payed $22 a night for 4 nights and got free breakfast every mourning...
I don't know what everyone is so flustered about
I was reading all the reviews - and must say - people are not doing their research. If you want to stay in a luxury hotel - by all means do so. the Plaza never advertised that it is a Luxury Hotel. What are you in Vegas for - to stay in your hotel room? I've been coming to this hotel for over 5 years now, yes -i had a few complaints - but I was comped with dinner and free rooms, security very friendly. That the elevators stink - that's a fact - but common - how many hours are you in an elevator - or are you just to lazy to walk the steps? All in all - you get what you pay for - and the Plaza has very reasonable rates. If you need more luxury comfort and money waist-go to the strip---and stop complaining.
Like the Plaza
Stayed here about 3 times and have had great experiences each time. Room worn but very clean. They have a 50's type restaurant with good food and great specials. The Front Stage restaurant overlooks Fremont Street and is reasonable. There is a guest laundry. Security was very good on each of my visits. Staff friendly.
Ripped off by housekeeping!!!!
On our original reservations we had requested a veiw of fremont street. Upon our arrival from a seven hour drive
we come to learn a convention of Harley Davidson bikers were
staying at the hotel which the hotel was sponsoring. As a result, our parties were split up onto different floors due to no vacancy!!
Instead of overlooking fremont street we were overlooking a parking lot of blarring loud motorcycles.
After several complaints were made we were moved into a another room.
Did things improve our stay? NO!!!
Now our bags were gone through and money was taken. We reported this to security and informed them the only one that was in there during the incident was housekeeping.
Securities response was very rude and did not show any interest in taking proper measures to find out who commited the crime.
Till this day the hotel has done nothing to make this matter right nor has security followed up with a report.
I am appauled on the way the hotel treat there guest, especially thier security who was very unprofessional!!
I would not stay again nor would I recomened the Plaza. Regardless if there rooms are reasonable or not. You basically pay for what you get.
No Response to complaints
We have gone to the Plaza for about 15 years and it has become rundown and unkept. Wallpaper is falling from walls, furniture is so soiled, one hestitates to sit in it. We immediately complained about these eye-sores and have gotten no response from anyone.
The rates they are charging for the rooms is too high for what they have to offer.
Panhandlers abound at this sub standard, run down establishment. It was frightening to step from the dirty parking structure into the filthy stinky entry halls. Up to par with a run down welfare tenament building. The place needs a complete renovation or demolition. The large bus station next door lends itself as an appropiate travel and stay partner. Was rated at three stars but 2 would be very generous.
This has got to be one of the worst places I have ever stayed. The elevators smelled like a mixture of throwp and cigarettes. In the room it was no better, They gave you one pillow if you could call it that. The room also was equipped with a television that had melted faces and warped colors. The sheets smelled like cigarettes and under one of the mattresses there was an half drunk bottle of Lord Calvert Canadian whiskey and a well worn prono magazine. To get a meal at anywhere in the casino took at least an hour, and when I went to the Seattle's Best Coffee to get a cup, the employees were more intrested in repairing the cash register than wait on a customer. There are absouletly no comps, no in room treats, the pool area was locked on the South side but open on the North. The whole trip was a waste of time due to staying there. One other thing, the air conditioner belched out smoke and dust when turned on. Ughh.

We started today with some very delicious blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. We temporarily forgot about American portions. They were huge and we should have ordered one serve between us.
We then went and looked around Las Vegas. But it was 42 degrees C here and so we ended up at a Mall called The Fashion Mall. We split up for awhile and I had a manicure. The girls ...

Stressed and anxious we would miss our show we were really pleased when Delta put us on the following Vegas flight which would get us there an hour prior to our show, still in time to dump our luggage at the hotel and get a cab straight there. To our relief the flight took off and landed on time. We rushed to the luggage belt where one of ...
