Picture skyscraping hotels, neon-lit casinos, themed hotels, sprawling golf courses and legions of high-rollers in high heels. Welcome to Vegas, the capital of all things dazzling and depraved, where martinis and mojitos fuel all-nighters spent at the casino or dancing on banquettes. While the city’s name may be shorthand for bad choices, there’s nothing guilt-worthy about a stay here. And while you may or may not win big in the requisite rounds of Blackjack, Keno or Craps, selecting Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino as your base for such a stay is a foolproof bet.
The property houses a 100,000-square-foot casino with more than 1,200 video slots; a KISS-themed 13,000-square-foot mini-golf course; a tattoo parlor; a 60,000-square-foot mall; and entertainment venues featuring comedian Eddie Griffin, magic-comedy duo Penn & Teller and the fun musical Rock of Ages. For relaxation, there’s a spa that offers aromatherapy showers, as well as four pool areas that boast such features as waterfalls or bars. You can also golf at one of Rio’s two area golf courses, one a Golfweek favorite. And for adventure, don’t settle for just a night of dancing (though you should hit the 51st-floor club); head to the Masquerade Tower, and zip-line over the city after dark. After all, if what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, you’d best be making it count.
Good to know
Please note that a resort fee of $29 (plus tax) per suite, per night is payable directly to the hotel. The resort fee includes access to the pool, fitness center and Internet; phone calls; and parking.
Each Rio accommodation is a sleek, elegant, stylish suite with floor-to-ceiling city-view windows. You’ll be able to watch movies on demand on your 32-in. TV, too – if the loads of local entertainment options don’t pull you away. Classic suites measure 600 sumptuous square feet and offer your choice of one king or two queen beds. If you really want to go big, though, opt for the Masquerade suite. These 1,600-square-foot abodes include a separate living and dining-room area, as well as dazzling 180-degree views of either the mountains or Strip.
There are 14 bars and eateries that make up Rio’s food-and-drink selection, one that’s certain to – as the hotel touts – “encourage overindulgence.” Highlights include a wine cellar with more than 100 choices, all-American Hash House A Go Go and the city’s only all-you-can-eat seafood restaurant. Satisfy cravings for faster food at the outpost of Pho Da Nang Vietnamese Kitchen or the BK Whopper Bar. Or, grab a drink at futuristic iBar or the watering hole in Masquerade Village.
Rio Spa & Salon is a chic, calming space channeling Hollywood glam, with black-and-white photographs of vintage movie stars. There are 15 treatment rooms here, plus relaxation lounges for men and women. You’ll be able to enjoy Vitamin C aromatherapy in the showers and complimentary fruit in the sauna. Make sure to try the Color Light Therapy treatment, one of the spa’s most popular.
From your digs just a short shuttle ride from the Vegas Strip, you can hit live-entertainment venues, legendary nightclubs and concert arenas. You’re also near sprawling malls, impressive golf courses (including Rio’s two, one of them a Golfweek top-100 pick) and, most famously, plenty of casinos. But you don’t need to step outside of Rio for most of these attractions. The casino here measures more than 100,000 square feet and holds more than 1,200 video slots, and other features include a KISS-themed 13,000-square-foot mini-golf course; a zip-line between two Vegas towers; a 60,000-square-foot mall with a range of clothing, art and accessory shops; the waterfalls and four pools of VooDoo Beach; and a tattoo parlor. For some of that famous Sin City entertainment, opt to see Eddie Griffin and Penn & Teller in action, or attend a performance of Rock of Ages. Finish the evening on the rooftop nightclub or one of the lounges, such as Purple Zebra.
How to Get There
Lots of food outlets, restaurants (good food at the sports bar!); interesting atmosphere!; and a MUST DO... seeing PENN and TELLER as the show was fabulous. Although our visit to Rio wasn't very lengthy, everything was pleasant and fun. The employees we encountered were very pleasant and very helpful to us.
We are locals and went for a comedy show. Every casino worker we came in contact with was friendly and polite. The staff at the comedy club were very polite and friendly along with the servers who were friendly
Nice size rooms. A little run down. Attractions to bring people in are gone. ie overhead trolley mardi gras show has been gone for years. Dancers in casino were non existant in the slot area this trip.
