The Riviera is one of the Classic Vegas hotel casinos still on the Strip--older properties that have held on as sleeker, newer, bigger places sprouted up everywhere. It's a hotel that offers value-priced rooms, which were recently renovated to bring in modern upgrades like flat screen TVs and iPod docks. Las Vegas visitors who want to spend less on a room and more in the casino (or at the showroom, or at the nightclub) may find the Riviera is right for them. If your heart yearns for the newest and hippest thing in Las Vegas, you should look at hotels south of the Riviera, but if you're looking for budget accommodations, take a look here.
Located close to the Las Vegas Convention Center and downtown Las Vegas, the Riviera is along one of the more lightly-traveled portions of the Strip. You're close to the Circus-Circus and the Las Vegas Hilton, but the Riviera isn't that close to any Monorail stops. With the nice year-round weather in Las Vegas, more fit visitors can probably walk to where they're headed--the Strip is only five miles long.
The Riviera never embraced any kid-friendly themes, which explains why there's a bronze statue of the Crazy Girl's butts in front of the hotel--"Crazy Girls" is the long-running adult show at the Riviera. This is an old-style Vegas casino, which means children aren't encouraged. You won't find any wildlife attractions here.
Guests can eat on site at five different restaurants. Dining options are more reasonable here, including those at the nearby hotel casinos. The Riviera's entertainment gives a nod to its Classic Vegas status: "The Rat Pack," a homage to Frank, Dean, Sammy, and Joey; and the topless (and buttless) show, "Crazy Girls" are two of its long-running shows.
