Mission's review of the D is up. I plan to add more pictures to it after my next visit downtown.

All comments and corrections are welcome.

Question for Mission; do they really have Pai Gow Mania there, as in you verified the table yourself, or is that list off the website? I thought it had been removed years ago, when it was still Fitzgerald's, so I didn't go looking for it. Love that game, and it's almost nowhere in the country any more.

I did not play the game, but I personally observed Pai Gow Mania at The D.

Wizard had actually mentioned that Fitzgerald's was one of the only (if not the only) places for Pai Gow Mania and Deuces Wild Hold 'Em Fold 'Em. That's still the case, apparently, both games are still there. If you come down the escalator from Vintage Vegas, Hold 'Em Fold 'Em is the first table game on the right, and the Pai Gow Mania is either a few down from that in the same row, or a few down, but in the next row.

I'm pretty sure they still have it. Deuces Wild Hold 'Em Fold 'Em too.

Spot on review.
I've stayed there before.
Sorry Mission was disapointed in his room.
When I stayed there, I was thrilled with my room and view.
Different rooms, different experiences.
My only complaint is a line can form for the few elavators.
Also its still too loud downstairs.

Thanks Wizard.

Mission, your review of the D is delightful, divine, dandy (can't think of any more adjectives beginning with D).

Very nicely ... done.

About the hotel room preferences not being guaranteed, I assumed such policy was common, but it's probably a casino thing because most of my hotel stays are at casino resorts.

I failed to locate the full pay Joker Poker upstairs. I think the only possible machine I missed was the one with 10-cent NSUD. It was occupied by a derelict. Actually he may have been a vagrant, I'm not sure.

*note to self* DO NOT EVER STAY AT THE D!



I doubt if all of their rooms are as poor, from a standpoint of cleanliness, as mine.

Honestly, I wanted nothing more than to give it a great review. They have the best gamble for low-level machine players...and it's not close...a great player's club, good food, Vintage Vegas is super cool. I honestly love everything about that place except the room cleanliness and them charging local calls and wireless on a comped room.

It's truly a fantastic place, and I would love nothing more than for someone to stay there and report a good experience on room cleanliness. I WANT this to be a fluke.

Four Queens has the best coupons/promos, though...

Thank you for the compliment!

The fourth floor is either the lowest or second lowest hotel level, depending on what's on the third floor, so that my view would suck was pretty much a given. I really wasn't too worried about the view, room cleanliness was the biggest thing.

I never had a line for elevators, but they could still be slow.

The first floor is SO LOUD, but only during Dancing Dealers time. It's a question of balancing your senses, if you're going to have your sense of sight satisfied, your sense of hearing has to suffer for it a little bit.

Wizard,

Could you pretty please with sugar on top verify they have that exact game when you're there taking pictures? I will stay downtown and play it next time if it's there, stay on the strip if it's not, so I'd really like to know. Thanks in advance!
