Grand Casino, BiloxiWednesday, April 06, 2005
Room: We have stayed at the Grand Casino in Gulfport, but this was our first time at the Grand in Biloxi. These casinos are owned by Caesars Entertainment, which also owns Caesars, Bally, Flamingo, and the Paris casinos. The room was comfortable as well as a nice size. The Grand Casino here actually has two hotels onsite (just like the one in Gulfport) - the Islandview Hotel, and the Bayview Hotel. The Bayview is less expensive because it is across the street (although there is a climate-controlled skywalk, so unless you mind two minutes extra of walking, it is **really** worth it to save the extra money).
Lobby: The Bayview Hotel lobby is very nice. Lots of seating.
Service: Front desk was friendly.
Spa: They didn't have any appointments available, but we did get a menu of services. Many services were offered, but the prices seemed higher than what I pay here in B'ham at the nicest spas.
Food: We had supper at LB's Steakhouse, which was very good. I had the prime rib 'Grand', and Av also had a very nice steak. The prices are comparable to Ruth's Chris. We had breakfast at The Marketplace buffet onsite, which was a disappointment. The best casino breakfast - and even though I generally detest buffets - is at the Beau Rivage.
Extra: We didn't bring our swimsuits, but the pool at the hotel looked very nice. We would definitely stay here again.
