Insider Tip


"Local" Seven Stars and certain eligible Diamond cardholders have several dedicated reserved parking spaces in the outdoor Carnival self-parking lot. Parking here requires a special hang-tag which players receive in the mail.
Hotel Overview
Not only is the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Caesars only all-suite property in Las Vegas, but it's the only one without a Las Vegas Boulevard ("Strip") address.  There is a special Seven Stars/Diamond/Platinum check-in to the far left of the front desk.

Self-parking in one of two garages or on large surface lots is complimentary, but can be a bit of a walk if you have lots of luggage – especially if you don't know in advance in which tower you'll reside. Take advantage of the complimentary valet parking, and you'll be within a few steps of check-in.


Insider Tip

VIP check-in is open Saturday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and from 8 a.m. to midnight on Fridays.

The Rio boasts one of the most spectacular rooftop views in all of Las Vegas.  Go at sunset to watch the city light up, but it's not for the faint of heart who fear heights (or glass elevator rides).  And, unless you like really loud music, enjoy the view and head elsewhere, because the place turns into a lively and noisy nightclub at night.

 

Hotel Guestrooms

Most of the recently renovated rooms really aren't "suites," just "plus-size" rooms with large sofas, and are located in one of three separate towers.  Rooms have separate dressing areas, refrigerators and coffeemakers.  High-speed Internet access is dependable.  "Mountain" or "Strip" views are the choices, if they ask.

 

Participates in the PetStay program.

Casino Overview

With a name like Rio, you'd expect a Carnivale-type atmosphere.  You won't be disappointed.  A section of the casino near the Carnival World & Seafood Buffet is a little quieter and less hectic than the others, but this place caters to a younger, hipper crowd for which the response to the question, "Is this too loud?" is, "No, louder!"  The beverage servers double as "bevetainers" (many proving they should stick to what they were originally hired for!).  Like most Caesars properties, Rio features all the typical slots and table games one would expect.  Complimentary drink service in the casino is relatively frequent; and dealers, slot attendants and servers all are extremely friendly and helpful.


Insider Tip


A free shuttle for Total Rewards cardholders runs daily between Rio and Harrah's approximately every 30 minutes between 10 a.m. and 1 a.m.  Exit the doors nearest to the Carnival World & Seafood Buffet and look for the sign. Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders, as well as those with disabilities, receive priority boarding.
Entertainment

The more intimate King's Room is home to comedian Eddie Griffin and X Rocks, a "sexy topless revue.".  Other permanent venues host Penn & Teller and the Chippendales.


Showtimes and dates vary for each of these shows, so check the Rio Web site for details.


And, other than the aforementioned "bevetainers" on Friday and Saturdays from 9 p.m. to midnight there is live entertainment on the stage in the Masquerade Casino.


Dining

Dining choices here are the widest and most culturally diverse of any Caesars Vegas property, with the possible exception of Caesars Palace: VooDoo Steak, Hash House A Go Go, the Royal India Bistro and KJ Dim Sum & Chinese Seafood restaurant are top choices in their categories.  Guy Fieri's El Burro Borracho replaced the former Buzio's Seafood Restaurant.


Insider Tip

Unique to the Rio is its Wine Cellar & Tasting Room.  Click here for details.

The Carnival World & Seafood Buffet is a combination of the former Carnival World Buffet and the Village Seafood Buffet.  If you want access to the optional roped-off specialty seafood section you’ll pay an “upgrade fee” and get your hand stamped with the sea creature-of-the-day, visible only under black light.  Check the website for current pricing.


For more casual dining there are the All-American Bar and Grille, the Sports Deli and Pho Da Nang Vietnamese KitchenSmashburger on the second level of the Masquerade Tower is also a good choice for a quick lunch or snack, and it also serves breakfast.  In addition, there are two Starbucks located in the Ipanema Tower and Pavilion Corridor.


Special Seven Stars Benefits*

In addition to the special Seven Stars entrances for the buffet and complimentary/priority admittance to the VooDoo Lounge (to see the view), as well as a dedicated taxi line, Seven Stars cardholders and a guest receive complimentary entry to the spa and fitness center.


Seven Stars and Diamond cardholders get a 10 percent discount on tickets and priority access on the VooDoo ZipLine (see below).
 

Insider Tip

The direct number to Rio is (702) 252-7777.  The toll-free number of the casino's Web site takes you to a Caesars call center.
Seven Stars Lounge
There is no Seven Stars Lounge, but the Diamond Lounge – with its somewhat hidden entrance in the high limit slot area – offers priority entrance to Seven Stars cardholders. If there are others waiting to get in, simply walk to the head of the line and present your card to the host.  The Lounge is located one level up from the casino, so you'll take a private elevator.  Sit other than in the main room and you risk being totally ignored by the servers.  There is no bar to sit at, and tables often fill quickly.  Guests used to the comparatively "lavish" buffets in Atlantic City will be extremely disappointed at the lounge fare in Las Vegas.  Caesars apparently has put all its Diamond Lounges on a "Mediterranean Diet," but it's a tasty selection of hummus, pita triangles, pretzels, potato chips, bruschetta, etc., and while many will disagree, it's a nice change of pace from the hoagies and hot dogs that used to be the main attraction.  Starting at 4 p.m. (until it runs out), the lounge serves hot food, e.g., chicken wings, mini-burritos, etc.  Two online computers are available for guests to check email or print boarding passes. 

 

VooDoo ZipLine
"Daredev
ils" may want to experience the VooDoo ZipLine, a 70-second ride that takes off from the VooDoo Lounge atop Rio’s 50-story Masquerade Tower.

Riders cascade more than 800 feet to the Ipanema Tower and reach speeds up to 33 miles per hour. On the return trip guests – up to two at a time – ride an additional 800 feet to the starting point facing backwards.

Insider Tip

The ZipLine accepts Reward Credits, but at 2:1.
The ZipLine is open daily.  Check the website for current hours of operation and ticket prices -- including special offers for multiple rides on the same day, discounts or Total Rewards cardholders and Nevada residents, military discounts, etc.

 

KISS Mini Golf

KISS by Monster Mini Golf is located on the Masquerade Village Casino level.  A unique 13,000 square-foot “KISS themed” attraction that showcases an indoor glow-in-the-dark custom-designed 18-hole miniature golf course, it's filled with state-of-the-art video and animatronics, and never-before-seen KISS props.

The environment is filled with arcade games, a special event room, a KISS rock ’n roll gift shop, and a rock ’n roll wedding chapel with themed wedding packages.   In addition, there is a DJ playing continuous KISS music, with trivia and other contests and prizes for all ages.   There is no fee to enter, but
check the website for current hours of operation and ticket prices -- including special offers for Total Rewards cardholders and Nevada residents, military discounts, etc.  If you want to use your Reward Credits, first go to the Rio Box Office and purchase your tickets there.


Should You Choose This For Your Annual Retreat?
Las Vegas remains the gaming mecca in the United States, and is probably the most popular destination for Seven Stars trips.  With eight other Caesars properties in town (Bally's, Caesars Palace, The Cromwell, Flamingo, Harrah's, The LINQ, Planet Hollywood and Paris), dozens of restaurants, nightclubs, golf, showrooms, the Forum Shops at Caesars (and other shops located inside Caesars properties), spa treatments, and relaxing by the pool (weather permitting), it would be easy to spend four nights (and $500) here – especially since you can "cross charge" to your room any meals, spa treatments, etc., even if they take place at another Caesars property in Las Vegas.

For those without other transportation, complimentary shuttles for Total Rewards® cardholders run regularly between Rio and Harrah's.  (See Insider Tip above.)

 

When you check-in, be sure to verify that your $500 comp account has been set-up. Alcohol charged to the room counts toward your $500 in expenses, but not gratuities for meals and spa treatments.  Best advice is to keep all your receipts until you settle your final bill.
