The view of the mountains, the beautiful trees and the water from the lobby are gorgeous. The staff is very polite and the rooms are great. You will feel relaxed from the minute you walk in to the casino/hotel.

We did have a negative experience at first with the check-in staff regarding our room but it was resolved the following morning. Other than that the staff in all area's except check in are very friendly and helpful.

I would suggest getting there a couple of hours early so can relax and get to your seats before the show starts.If you are staying the night,then get there at 2pm or 3pm or whenever Check In begins.The Concert Venue is part of the main complex.
