Once known as the Holiday Casino, this popular, mid range, mid price property became Harrah's Las Vegas
in 1992, and for most of its life had a pleasureboat theme, before rebranding to the current party-carnival motif in 1997, at the same time as the opening of its main tower, 35 storeys high. Harrah's occupies quite a small section of Las Vegas Boulevard though extends back for half a block, its main buildings comprising three accommodation towers, the casino (over 1,200 slots plus 80 table games) and a 25,000 sq ft conference center. Travel to other places on the Strip is easy via the monorail, which stops right outside the hotel at the rear.
For dining, Harrah's has seven restaurants offering a variety of cuisine at a range of prices. Magician Mac King
headlines the main show; other entertainment is the Improv Comedy Club
, featuring new comedy performers, and the Legends in Concert
tribute shows. Although relatively old, the rooms & suites are upgraded regularly and the place has a good reputation for quality and service, and quite a central location. Some rooms have rather limited views, however.
