Just this month Caesars Windsor instituted a new rule that you cannot bring any outside liquor into their hotel.
You can still purchase booze from room service, so unless it was a different brand I don't think the maids would know or care where that bottle of wine in your room came from.

I always bring some with me. Now I will just have to be more discreet.

I am guessing the reason for this is to

A. Force us to pay their ridiculously high prices for booze and
B. Curtail the drunken parties that the young people have. You see them bringing in cases of beer etc....

Do they not serve free drinks?

I can't imagine ever needing to BYOB to a casino in vegas. It's practically free if you don't count tipping.

Lat time I purchased a bottle of alcohol was for a house party or perhaps a gift.

I suppose one may drink in his or her room.

.



No alcoholic drinks can be given away in Ontario

Not even in the Diamond Lounge


Yes it was to slow down the young folks beer party in the hotel rooms....somebody can always get a free room to party in

Add that its 19 to drink in Ontario and 21 in Michigan and well you get the idea

Seen a few people heading across the bridge into the casino with over night bags and security was NOT checking any of them

Most places in the Midwest don't serve free drinks either, including my home state of Missouri. I also go to Tunica fairly often and that's a significant reason.

Right...no free booze, sadly.

I just stayed there for a few days. (Sunday to Tuesday)


I noticed lots of big new "NO ALCOHOL BEYOND THIS POINT" signs.

Also at the foot of both room towers there was a podium for a guard to stand at.
That is new.
But I never saw them manned.
Maybe they only bother manning them on weekends or something.

I did bring a mickey in my suitcase.
I am assuming they won't be checking suitcases.
(I hope I am right!)

Just a quick question.... did you eat at the casino during your stay? If so what did you think of the food offered

We went to the Windsor Caesars buffet about a year ago, and it was just OK. We had been hoping for better.

Agreed. The Horseshoes in Cleveland and Cincinnati are much better.

Headed down to Cleveland today to use my January buffet comp, aw yeah!

I live in this city so I visit the casino often and have eaten in pretty well all of their establishments.

The only thing I ate this time was room service and the buffet.

The buffet is hit or miss.
It certainly isn't Wynn or Bacchanal.

Don't touch their meatloaf or beef stroganoff.
Not sure how they make those taste bad but they do.

They have a good "make your own pasta dish" section, the sushi is good, the desserts are awesome.
You won't leave hungry.
