I was very dismayed/POed to discover today that Caesars Windsor has decided to close their Diamond Lounge from Monday to Thursday. (The days I typically get to visit) It will only be open from Fri to Sun and occasional show days.

So if any you visit CW be aware.
I have already written to complain.

That's horrible. I can see if they don't open until 3 or 4 and close for lunch but to not open at all is plain sucky.

Your diamond status really means little enough as it is to them. The exclusive lounge and free drinks at check-in are available only when their rooms are most expensive, their extended weekends. So they charge more for the room but they give you a mint for your pillow. Great!!

Welcome to Windsor.......

the place is a dump now, run by accountants into the ground. Latest thing is they automatically bring everybody a glass of water to your table in the buffet. They reduced the size of the glass they use for pop/soda ..want you to drink water instead of ordering another pop which likely costs them about 5 cents.

The buffet is a total joke with such a small choice of food.... i suggest you have the fellas do a stir fry up for you if you want FRESH FOOD to eat .... they make it as you wait. The Italian food section has almost zero choices just like the Chinese section.

Now if you eat at Legends DO NOT ORDER the ribs.... they are boiled in a bag and tossed on the grill for a few minutes ( the worse ribs I have ever eaten ) and they only charge you like $20 for them

Erie street is a short 5 minutes away ( out of the parking garage onto the one way Glengary street heading south third set of traffic lights is Erie Street for REAL Italian food in the city's Little Italy ...also located on Erie St is my old neighbors rib place http://tommysbarbq.com/ his parents used to own the famous Tunnel Bar B Que rib place which is now gone

treated my brother when he was in town last year to dinner here ..he ordered his regular Nachos and when it arrived he looked at the plate and something was different, something was missing from his order...called the waitress over and said something is missing from my order she looked at it and you could see she realized right away she forgot to make sure he noticed the change on the NEW MENU that just came out that week.....
BIG SLUGGER NACHOS
Corn Tortilla Chips Topped with Fresh Tomatoes,
Green Onions, Jalapeño Peppers, Red & Green
Bell Peppers, Melted with a Blend of Cheddar,
Mozzarella & Nacho Cheese
$14.29 | $15.29
Add Taco Beef or Grilled Chicken Breast $4.99 ******* they removed the meat unless you paid the extra $4.99

Erie street is a short 5 minutes away ( out of the parking garage onto the one way Glengary street heading south third set of traffic lights is Erie Street for REAL Italian food in the city's Little Italy ...also located on Erie St is my old neighbors rib place http://tommysbarbq.com/ his parents used to own the famous Tunnel Bar B Que rib place which is now gone Once you hit Erie St at Howard turn left go half way around the turn circle to stay on Erie St Tommys will be the first corner past the turn circle

They are bringing a SPAGOS dinning place into the Casino shortly ( its how they offer food there now without having to supply the workers ... renting out space like Johhny Rockets burgers) Spagos is located on ERIE STREET and is one of the main Italian food places

I can see how disappointing this would be. It's not fair after you've "paid" for something to not get it by having the terms changed.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

Thanks for the heads-up.

Perhaps a certain craps dealer there will be putting in a bid to buy the joint and run it right.
