Different treatment for different people.

I walked on the boat with my wife and she brought something to my attention. The black workers ignore the white people, we were right behind a nice black couple and the black gentleman in the red coat smiled at them and said hello and good luck. When I, an white male, smiled and said hello to him he looked right at me and said nothing wit no smile. This is known as reverse racism and someone should educate certain workers.

Not a Vegas casino....but lovely 💖

During our road trip my husband offered to stay here. He is well aware of my penchant for casinos....I was so pleasantly surprised by this really nice venue.
The hotel is rather upscale and the entire staff is warm and accommodating. The rooms are large, comfortable, and well-designed.
There are numerous restaurants from which to choose.
The casino, itself, has an “interesting” layout- because it is situated on a “boat” so as to comply with state laws.
Our overnight stay was very enjoyable.

First of all, this place is huge! Hell of a time navigating it.

My room was excellent. Felt like a small apartment rather than just a single room, and had a decent view as well. The price was good and had plentiful parking.
My sleep was insanely good given the comfort of the bed and the bathroom was palatial.

Ate at the bar, a huge steak of sorts and that was all good and cheap.

I’d thoroughly recommend you avoid the casino. Good heavens it’s grim. Feels like it’s added on in a few spare rooms and the crowd isn’t great!

Is probably stay here again for convenience and the quality of the room; I’d just pretend the casino doesn’t exist!

Good location if going to Chicago

We were going to a concert and we stayed here because we didn't want to pay the ridiculous prices for parking at a hotel in Chicago. It was worth it and if we go back to Chicago we will stay again. The hotel is nicely decorated and the employees are very polite. We were impressed by the huge bathroom in our room. The halls did smell a bit like cigarettes, we may have been on a smoking floor, but we couldn't smell it in the room. The room was clean. We ate breakfast at the Stadium restaurant and it was huge and good! We also had a discount at the Buffett and ate lunch and it was pretty good. We weren't there to gamble, but we got cards and played the $15 on the cards and left. Not too excited about the casino. We went down to the "beach". Lots of trash washed up on shore most likely due to the industrial location. Being from the Rust Belt, I was pretty happy to see the steel mills running.
