The Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas was the first all-suite hotel in the
country. The second all-suite hotel in the country also happens to be in
Las Vegas….its the Venetian, and more hotel/casinos will likely follow
suit in the future, as more resorts continue to pop up in Las Vegas.
Located less than a mile from the Las Vegas Strip, the Rio is known for attracting a younger clientele than most other resorts in Las Vegas. In fact, the resort discourages guests from bringing their children to stay there. This is because the Rio employs a Mardi Gras, street party, Brazilian carnival type of atmosphere, and the presence of children could potentially put a damper on this theme.
However, they should have thought this through a little bit more, before deciding to build what was voted "The Best Buffet in Las Vegas" many times. The Rio’s "Carnival World" Buffet is set up like a self-serve food court, and has just about every type of food and desert you can think of. This obviously attracts families, which isn’t consistent with the theme they try to employ, although it really doesn’t create any problems.
The resort has over 2,500 suites which range in size from approximately 600 square feet and up, and have the very popular windows that reach from the floor to the ceiling, giving way to spectacular views.
The casino at the Rio covers more than 120,000 square feet of gaming space and we did pretty well at their house slots, which they call "Parrot’s Perch".
In addition to having one of the most exciting night clubs in Las Vegas, the resort also has 4 pools, a full-service spa, with steam rooms, and whirlpool tubs. Outside, they put together a man-made beach and lagoon to make you feel like you’re at a tropical island.
So if you’re looking for a wild time and a young crowd in Las Vegas, put The Rio at the top of your list for places to stay.
