Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino - Classic Suite - Las Vegas
During my 10 day stay in Vegas, I stayed at the Rio Hotel and had complimentary Starbucks breakfast every morning, a spacious room and free shuttles to the strip
So recently I went on a last minute holiday to Las Vegas. We booked the package trip with Expedia and my flight was with Virgin Atlantic. My long time readers and Instagram followers should have noticed by now how much I love Las Vegas. Last year was my first time visiting and I loved every second of it, so I was super excited to go again and tick more bucket list stuff off my never ending list.
The reason for the quick booking of the trip was because my partner was playing in the WSOP (World Series of Poker), so we booked the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino to stay in for 10 days as that's where the event was being hosted.
As with any Las Vegas resort the Rio is huge, our room was a Classic suite with 2 queen beds and a mountain view. The room was spacious and included a shower, bath, two sinks, 3 large mirrors, an ironing board, iron, fridge, large TV, hairdryer and a safe, plus most importantly super fast wifi and a lovely clean room and fresh towels to return to every evening.
We also really enjoyed having the floor to ceiling windows and would keep them open day and night as we loved falling to sleep seeing the vegas neon lights below and waking up naturally to some very hot Vegas sunshine peeking into the room in the morning. As we visited Vegas in June, the desert heat was super hot for us British tourists so we were pleased to always come back to the room and it be the perfect comfortable temperature with the air conditioning on.
The Rio has free parking, a fitness centre, a convention centre, a spa and lots of shops, restaurant's and bars. There are also a couple of large pools and plenty of sun lounger space. Although the hotel was full of guests I never struggled to find a place to sunbathe, and free towels were handed out to everyone near the entry.
As the Rio hotel is not located on the strip, they offer a free round trip shuttle service that runs every 30 minutes. It's available between the hours of 10am and Midnight. It's only a quick 15 minute or less journey and it drops you off and picks you up at either the Paris Hotel or the Bally's resort.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Rio, especially when we had free complimentary breakfast every morning up to the value of $18 from Starbucks. I am not sure if this is an offer they run all the time, so it may not be guaranteed, but it was a lovely surprise when we checked into the hotel.
