Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

How The Mighty Have Fallen...


 

 

Harrah's -- Now Caesar's Entertainment has hit a new low with this attempt to lure more customers to their properties. I understand hotel marketing has to find new and creative ways to lure people in.  But to encourage people to bring their dogs, come on now.  I love the two dog limit and no dog can be over 50lbs.  How that hell will that be enforced?  Will there be a scale at check in?  What about people who are scared of dogs?  What about people allergic to dogs?  Can you bring your dog with you and have it sit next to you while you play a machine?  It's bad enough with all the children in casinos, now add dogs?  Seriously...  Below is some the text for this current Internet ad for this ridiculous promotion.

 
 

Caesars Palace, Paris Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood, Harrah's Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, Bally's Las Vegas, Rio Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and Imperial Palace in Las Vegas are rolling out the red carpet for traveling dogs, with the launch of "PetStay," the resorts' new pet-friendly hotel program.

Guests participating in the PetStay program are greeted by several canine-friendly in-room amenities including a mat, food and water dishes, disposable waste bags and dog treats.


 

Each PetStay resort hosts a designated PetStay area within the hotel, equipped with welcome packets that direct guests to outdoor relief areas and dog walking routes. Additional Information about dog-friendly items for purchase and nearby dog services (such as grooming, walking and veterinary care) is available upon check-in at each of the participating resorts.

PetStay resorts each have the following pet policy:      Dogs staying at any of the participating hotels must weigh

  • 50 pounds or less and be present at the time of check- in
  • Up to 2 dogs per room are allowe
  • Dogs are permitted to walk through designated common areas while on a leash and accompanied by the owner.


 
Hotel room rates for owners traveling with a dog are competitively priced at a $40 per night upgrade for designated pet-friendly hotel accommodations in the Augustus Tower at Caesars Palace; a $35 per night upgrade applies to similar accommodations at Paris, Planet Hollywood, Harrah's, Flamingo, Bally's, and Rio; a $25 upgrade applies to similar accommodations at Imperial Palace.

  1. Speaking of going to the dogs ... .

    It has been announced that a major shareholder in The Evil Empire will be selling all his holdings.

    Is he the first of the rats to see that the debt load is forcing the company to go to the dogs?

  2. I smuggled my cat into the Golden Nugget in 2001. I returned from taking her down to the car the next day to find the maids taking my stuff, probably thinking that I had abandoned it because I needed my suitcase to take my cat down to the car.

    Now I stay at Motel 6 when I'm travelling with my cat.
