Heading out for a guys trip in September - the guy who is planning the trip can get free rooms at either of the above and wants us all to stay together.

I have gambled at the Rio a few times but never stayed there - never set foot in the Hard Rock.

What do you guys/gals think?

Well, by virtue of Rio being right on The Strip, that'll probably be better for a group outing.

Personally though, I hate playing on the strip.

Edit: I was thinking of the Flamingo. All the CETs and MGMs tend to blend together after a while...

When did they move the Rio to the strip? I would have liked to see that.

The RIO pool sights are nice, but doesn't the Hard Rock have way more 'talent' at the pool?

Neither are on the strip. However, Rio is much closer to the strip than Hard Rock. And there is a way to get from Rio to Caesars by going out the back and under the highway that is a relatively short walk.

That said, I think the party atmosphere at Hard Rock would be better for a guys trip.

Stay at Rio, play at Palms. Close to the strip, and same atmosphere as at Hard Rock.

I've never set foot in the Hard Rock, but looking at the various room offerings on their website, the place seems hip & swanky. And apparently the Hard Rock attracts plenty of friendly young women.

On the other hand, I'm very familiar with Rio, having stayed there twice-- most recently in May 2012. I like Rio's saltwater swimming pool (no chlorine!) But despite their size, Rio's rooms are lacking. The polite version is that the rooms need new furniture, new TVs, new carpet, new paint, and new decor. The impolite version is that the place is a dump.

When did they build a tunnel? Is the overpass closed?
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.

Not closed, but I'm curious about this back way myself.
