Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Review
In Brazil, Rio is party central, and in Las Vegas so is this sprawling resort just west of the Strip. The standard so-called suites don't actually have separate bedrooms, but they're spacious (at least 600 square feet), and higher-end units have double whirlpool tubs, wet bars, and other cushy touches. Year-round, the chief attraction is Show in the Sky (formerly Masquerade Village), with shops and Mardi Gras floats circling from a ceiling track. "Bevertainers" in this area periodically stop their drink-slinging to break into song and dance. VooDoo Lounge, a rooftop nightclub, is also worth checking out. Approach table games with caution—the casino edge is one of Vegas's worst. If you'd rather just watch, visit in July, when the ballrooms on the east side of the property host the annual "Main Event" of the World Series of Poker.
