Hip, hip, Harrah! This hotel on the Strip has everything you want from your Sin City stay, and then some. Enjoy locations of some of your favorite chain restaurants, like Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and Ben & Jerry’s, soak up some sun by the pool, let your hair down at an open-air street party or decompress at the soothing wellness center on the fourth floor. Picking out a whole new wardrobe is easy, thanks to the 12 shops (plus a UPS store, for shipping it all home), and quite a few entertainers take the stage each evening, like soul band The Righteous Brothers and comedian and magician Mac King.
If you’re ready to roll – the dice, that is – the casino boasts more than 80 table games, plus slot machines that can win you the Vegas jackpot. And whenever you start itching to explore beyond the Harrah’s Las Vegas grounds, the Strip’s greatest hits are at your fingertips. The High Roller – the world’s tallest observation wheel – is right next door, as is the surrounding promenade at The LINQ. Speaking of The LINQ, it shares a monorail station with you, making shuttling up and down the famous boulevard, as well as rubbing shoulders with the glitterati at Drai’s at The Cromwell or taking in a show at Planet Hollywood, a breeze. Talk about hitting the Vegas jackpot.

You can’t go wrong with any of the four drinking options, either: Signature Bar; Numb Bar, which focuses on frozen drinks; and the Piano Bar are sleek and cosmopolitan destinations, while Carnaval Court has a more raucous vibe, thanks to the open-air dance parties that it hosts. The surrounding Strip holds countless more eateries and drinkeries – we recommend Strip House at sister-hotel Planet Hollywood, another Caesars Entertainment property.
The fourth-floor spa is a low-key, peaceful spot, with a steam room, a sauna and whirlpools, plus a menu of relaxing treatments. Receive the Warm Desert Stone massage, or wind down with the Stress Reducer package, followed by a service at the salon or a session in the fitness center. Athletic apparel is sold on the premises, in case you happened to forget your workout gear.

The pool is also a must, when open for the season – this is Vegas, after all.The other best eateries, venues, shops and casinos are steps away, with the High Roller promenade and observation wheel just next door. The hotel shares a monorail stop with The LINQ, to get you up and down the Strip in minutes.
How to Get There
Everything was brand new in the room and it did not smell smoky. Based previous reviews, I would agree similar to a Courtyard Marriott. We were contacted via text by a concierge if we needed anything and the hotel was centrally located on the strip to walk to everything. The Oyster Bar had fantastic oysters Rockefeller and the service was great! Note: Once you go to the main floor, the cigarette smoke was overwhelming and made me congested by day two. Honestly, all the casinos were that way. My main reason for the 3 stars is issues with the rewards card. Repeatedly, we had to keep receipts and go stand in line to get points for what we were spending. At Harrah's, an employee was quite rude (almost angry) at the desk and told me I needed to present my card BEFORE I made a purchase. I explained I did provide my card ahead of time but was told at the point of sale, I would have to go to the Rewards desk. The Harrah's employee then said he would credit my account but I needed to present the card ahead of time. I reiterated, I had done that. I do not understand why anyone would think I deliberately wanted to go stand in line to get points like I had nothing better to do? Casesar's needs to train employees to take the time to process the rewards upfront. He made me feel like I inconvenienced him and it was the other way around. This was our first trip to this hotel and he left me with a bad taste. Smoke aside, this is a solid, centrally located hotel and the Oyster Bar was great.
Centrally located on the Strip and easily accessible, friendly atmosphere. When ordering drinks, drinks were returned with the friendliest attitudes from the waitresses. Harrah's Players Club desk was awesome - card value was offered without asking as for was promo, food etc.
It's my first time in Harrah's hotel and I found the receptionist was very nice and she explained the deposit will be $400 then she reduce it to $200 for 8 days stay she even gave us a gift of $10 free play or free drink the hotel very clean and the room was amazing fully renovated clean bathroom flat screen TV on the wall and the staff was great I'm glad I booked with this Hotel ????
