The Plaza's pool has been undergoing a complete renovation and is almost done.

Here are some pictures from today. The furniture and water go in Monday June 20th.
I love that hot tub!

Just curious, given all the choices, if you wanted a pool is there some reason to stay at the plaza?

Nothing wrong with the Plaza for us Low Roller Hustler types. For you High Rollers... nothing but the best on the Strip of course but I love my Host at the Plaza and get the fake 2 Room Suite all the time! Not that I need the room since my house is only about 15 mins away but it is nice to have the room when you want to play long sessions. I guess when you get used to eating at the Bellagio, Aria, CET... etc etc... you just can't live the simple life anymore! No matter how high you climb up the ladder it is important to remember where you came from and have a 99 cent hot dog every now and then. However, I was at the Horseshoe Steakhouse the other night and no matter how many people say it has gone down hill... it still tastes good to me and the price is right (FREE)!

Did you know that they almost destroyed that pool a few years ago and were seriously going to make it a hockey rink for the Wranglers!!?? Too bad the deal didn't go through cause I love me some Wrangler Hockey!

I wasn't saying it's all high roller, what I meant was aren't rooms at the linq and Paris almost the same price with even a small amount of gambling? Every time I'm at the plaza it seems so run down, Heck a couple weeks back the roof had trash bags hanging from the center of it

I don't mind playing with rain water falling on me for Double Royals, 4X Bingo, 10X Point Days, and Tax Day Promos! Although all these are done The Plaza might come up with something else! I don't see The Paris and The Imperial Palace (LINQ) doing such promotions!

There were reasons why the Plaza had those issues...they were in the middle of tearing out the old pool when those crazy heavy rains came. That is how some water ended up in the casino. If they hadn't been in the middle of renovations it never would have happened.

The tarps were only up because of that rain emergency. They are gone now.

The 3rd floor construction is now in full swing as they are remodeling the convention hallway and ballroom.

One of the things I like about staying at the Plaza and all the downtown spots as opposed to comparable places on the Strip is that I can get a decent meal for an economical price. That is almost impossible on the Strip anymore. I also find that my gambling bankroll lasts longer downtown.

I think a lot of my dislike towards staying downtown is the fact that the first time I stayed at the nugget it was st Patrick's day- I don't drink so it was a little overwhelming.
