Exploration Summary: Plaza Mini Suite

Oscar's Restaurant at PlazaOscar's Restaurant located in Plaza

During my wife's spring break, we opted for a staycation in downtown Las Vegas, where she works as an educator in the Clark County School District.

I have become quite familiar with the staff at Plaza throughout my years of playing there, and I must say that I play almost exclusively at this particular establishment. Interestingly enough, many of the staff members at Plaza used to work at Las Vegas Club, which was where my favorite slot machines were located prior to its unfortunate closure.

I've been fortunate enough to enjoy some great benefits from this play. Over the past three summers, we've been treated to a cabana pool suite. However, given the less-than-ideal weather this week, we were given a mini-suite instead to make the most of our stay.

On the 14th floor of the South Tower, we were fortunate enough to get a room that offers a breathtaking view of the iconic Las Vegas Strip. Facing south, our room provides an incredible panorama of the bustling cityscape. As we step inside, we are greeted by a spacious and inviting atmosphere. To the left, we find a wet bar, perfect for enjoying a refreshing drink or two. Adjacent to it, a cozy seating area beckons us to relax and unwind after a long day of exploring. Two large windows adorn the room, allowing natural light to flood in and showcase the vibrant energy of the city below. Additionally, a spacious closet stands ready to accommodate all our belongings, ensuring a clutter-free and organized stay.

I am of the opinion that the bathroom in the standard rooms is identical. While it may be relatively small when compared to contemporary rooms, it is on par with those from its time period.

Gambling report

During our trip, my wife and I decided to try our luck on the coin joker machines. We noticed that there were two machines set up side by side, enticing us with their flashing lights and promises of potential winnings. As expected, my wife had some luck on her side and managed to win a small amount, while I, unfortunately, had less success and ended up losing more than I had hoped for. It seemed luck wasn't on my side that day. Despite our efforts, neither of us managed to land a hand better than a straight flush. However, we didn't let our disappointing results deter us, and we didn't venture into any other games during our time at the casino.

Oscar’s dinner

During our stay, we were delighted to receive a complimentary voucher for Oscar's. It was the perfect opportunity to indulge in a delectable meal. Both my companion and I opted for the filet, savoring every bite of its succulent flavors. I specifically chose the bone-in option, as it adds an extra layer of richness to the dish. The chef expertly cooked it to a medium-rare perfection, resulting in a tender and juicy steak that exceeded my expectations. To start off our culinary adventure, we decided to indulge in some crab cakes as an appetizer. The combination of the delicate crab meat and the subtle blend of spices left our taste buds dancing with delight. It was the ideal way to kickstart our unforgettable dining experience at Oscar's.

Over the years, Oscar's has witnessed a transformation in its surroundings. In its early days, the breathtaking view from the restaurant encompassed the entirety of Fremont Street. However, with the introduction of the zipline platform, a significant portion of that panoramic vista is now obstructed. Furthermore, the ongoing demolition of the Las Vegas Club and the construction of Circa on the same site have brought about further changes to the landscape. On a more positive note, the dome at Oscar's now offers a newfound view of Binion's and California, which were previously hidden from sight.

What other activities did we engage in?

In the brief span of a single night, we visited Fremont Street, though our time there was limited. Remarkably, the weather took an unexpectedly chilly turn for this particular time of year, much to my wife's disdain, as she has an aversion to such wintry conditions. Our non-gambling pursuits revolved entirely around indulging in alcoholic beverages. I must take this opportunity to commend the exemplary drink service at Plaza. Countless cocktail servers worked tirelessly to ensure that our libation needs were promptly met, their names too numerous to mention individually.

A special mention goes out to those who graciously host.

During our stay at the Plaza, Nicole, my host, had arranged some wonderful complimentary perks for us. However, on the evening that we arrived, Nicole happened to have the night off. Fortunately, Curt, another attentive staff member, made sure that all our needs were met and that we enjoyed a delightful experience at the hotel.

Plaza is a fantastic option if you're staying downtown or thinking about establishing a connection with a casino in that area. When it comes to comps, Plaza embraces an old-fashioned approach, particularly catering to tourists. I've had the pleasure of introducing Plaza to several of my friends, and it never fails to impress. What sets Plaza apart is the way they acknowledge actions that might go unnoticed in other places. Their mailers are a delightful surprise, often containing complimentary rooms, free play, and food comps.
