Plaza Hotel and Casino Review, Downtown Las Vegas

Plaza Hotel and Casino Review in Downtown Las VegasI have never been to Vegas before so when I asked a couple of friends for advice on a cheap and cheerful hotel for a business meeting they suggested the Plaza in Downtown Vegas. I didn’t want to be on the strip as I thought it might be too overcrowded for me as I was traveling alone and as I was only staying for two nights I know I didn’t need it to be all singing and dancing.

The reviews I read all said the hotel was a little outdated but as there was news of a recent refurbishment I didn’t think much of them, however just from the lobby I could tell there were still some much needed upgrades.

My check in was short and sweet and the customer service was standard. There was a long queue so I don’t think they were focused on taking the time to stop and talk to their guests in detail about their stay, which I could understand as I had already had a long wait until it was my turn.

Similar places to stay include Golden Gate, Golden Nugget, El Cortez, Fremont Hotel, Downtown Grand and Main Street Station.

My room was reasonably sized for the price I had paid however it wasn’t as clean as I would expect a hotel room to be. There were stains on the bed sheets and the bathroom left little to the imagination. As I wasn’t too impressed I called down to the front desk to see if there was anything to do. They apologized and dealt with my complaint perfectly, moving me to a different, upgraded room.

The new room was a queen size and was much bigger than the standard room. I liked that it had more desk space as I was there on business and would be typing up my notes each night after the conference.

As I didn’t want to stay on the strip (closer to where my conference was), I used Uber to get where I needed.

On my second night I ordered room service as I didn’t want to venture downstairs. I’m always dubious about room service orders as I find they’re usually cold by the time they arrive, however, I was pleasantly surprised by the Plaza. The food was piping hot (just how I like it) and I felt there was no compromise to the taste at all, I really enjoyed it and wish I had done the same the night before.

Overall I would recommend the Plaza for short stays as I don’t think I could have stayed there much longer than two nights. One tip I have is if you do have an issue with your room the staff are great and the customer service is impeccable, so be afraid to make a complaint.
