If you have a history of sleepwalking or jumping off tall buildings, don't stay in the Ocean Tower at Resorts Casino! Ask for the Rendezvous Tower instead! This was my view when I walked into the room.

That's a wide open window 11 stories up! No window restrictors needed here I guess!

I too have had some crappy views at resorts but I still love it. It's my favorite place to go and stay.

I like Resorts too, and the view is fabulous. And I also appreciate fresh air, but not that much fresh air!

Very true. I didn't notice the window open and guess I didn't fully read your post. thought you were just saying about the lack of view. the rooms usually only let you open the window maybe six inches. There are tabs of some sort in there, but I mean I'm sure they could be removed without much effort.

We've been staying at Resorts since the very beginning and have always been treated extremely well. Any problems have been rectified immediately to our satisfaction. You have to let them know though.

We had a comped suite in the Ocean Tower this past weekend and the windows had stops that only allowed them to open a few inches.

It hasn't been called Resorts International for some time now. Thanks for the memory. It makes me think of Merv who used to walk the floor and interact with his guests.

A brief AC trip report: I've started shifting my play to Resorts. I was a CET guy. Guy tired of the stingy games...and the even stingier comps. So shifted to Revel and Taj, but Revel is kaput(we all know what happened there), and Taj just feels sad now.

So, stayed at Resorts over the weekend(fri-mon), first time staying in the hotel. Comped suite in the Ocean Tower. It was a gorgeous huge room(s) on the corner of the building with views facing 3 directions. Biggest room I've ever stayed in, in any hotel, anywhere. Great.

The casino was very busy on the weekend, less so Sunday and Monday, but still reasonable amount of games of all types open. Good action on all tables, all the $25 BJ games are S17; 6 deck hand shuffled, which is nice...and I got very well rated for my green chip level play. I also met several other BJ players that were very familiar with WOO and WOV. We tried to help some less educated players at our table, but as usual it was to no avail. The floor people and dealers were all universally friendly and appreciated tips greatly. I'm an average tipper but they really seemed to appreciate my action. The cocktail waitresses were the best I've had in AC in a long time. Pretty, fast, efficient, real drinks in an actual glass, as it should be. Refreshingly competent.

I didn't play any them, so can't comment on specific rules, but they seemed to have a larger than normal selection of carnival games...including 3 tables of Let it Ride, 2 Mississippi Stud, and some type of criss-cross poker variant I hadn't seen before. All were getting more action than I'm used to seeing at those type of games. I didn't play any slots or video poker, sorry. But there seemed to be heavy action on many versions of the wheel of fortune games. As well as some new version of the roulette game (by organic I think), where it has an automatic wheel with no dealer and 8 or 10 seats, different layout and graphics than I've seen before. This was always busy.

Couple of misc. things...the food court had some nice low priced food options for lunch and stuff, and the comps are easy to use and always 1:1. Had my young son with us(he's almost 5). He got his hand stuck in the hot-tub in our room...just a hicky he's fine..but it scared him. He still said it was "the best room ever", he thought he furniture made a great jungle gym, and the suite was big enough we could play hide and seek. We also left the maid a note with $5 and asked for some extra note pads, as he's a doodler. She left us like 10 of them. With a smiley face drawn on the top one. It's little things like that, that make a difference in a hotel stay. He was happy as a clam and brought a couple home with him. Calls them his "special hotel paper". My family also greatly enjoyed the pool though it's only open until 5pm for kids, 6 for adults. Some longer hours would be nice. All in all a great experience I expect to be back.

Don't forget that your comps can be used at Mohegan Sun properties.

Each place I tried to do it, no one had a clue on how to transfer. I had $90 at Mohegan and didn't use them because I thought I could use them at Resorts. No one in marketing could help me. Hopefully they've gotten better.

Has anyone on the board had luck with using MS or Resorts Comps at either property?

Yes, 1BB they were advertising that prominently in the casino. Never been to Mohegan but I may be in New England this summer to visit some friends of my wife. So maybe I'll get a chance to use some.

We ate at Gallagher's a couple of weeks ago with my brother in law and he gave the waiter his Resorts and Mohegan Sun cards and told him to figure it out. There was still a balance on the MS card but not the Resorts. The transaction went smoothly.
