This is where the wedding was, and we got a rate of $134 for a one bedroom suite for Friday and Saturday and I believe it was $99 for the other days, of course, this was the rate for the wedding, so it might be a little more expensive if you just stayed there alone. I had read some reviews on the place before we left, and wasn't sure what to expect, but for the price, I was happy with the place. There was a bedroom, bathroom, and then another large room that was a living room/dining room area and then a kitchen area with a full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, since, coffee maker, etc. Because of the size, it didn't feel cluttered like some hotel rooms we usually stay in. It was nice to have the large fridge, although we only used it for leftovers and water, some other people had it stocked with water, food, beer, etc. I have no complaints with the room, it was clean and spacious, and reasonably priced.

The wedding was also held in the little chapel area off of the lobby, it wasn't very large, but probably would fit around 50 people. We then went into a room in the back for drinks and appetizers and cake and there was a bar right next to the room. They also had a continental breakfast, which we did not eat, but it looked like a good assortment of cereals, breads/danishes, etc.

The location was also wonderful. We walked right across the street and the heavenly gondola was right there along with a few shops and numerous restaurants and bars. There was also a strip mall across the other street that had a grocery store and some pizza and sub shops, so you could walk and get whatever you need. The casinos are also very close within walking distance.

Overall, I would recommend this place based on the price and location.
