The Plaza Hotel
As we do every January, we headed to Las Vegas Nevada for the Consumer Electronics Show. This year we took a detour from spending our entire visit with family and spent the first couple of nights of our trip at the Plaza Hotel. We had a bit of wait at check-in despite being on your midnight when we arrived but once we got to the counter, we were checked in promptly and in our room and no time. Our room was comfortable and included a flat screen television and free Wi-Fi, as well as two bottles of water each day during our stay. Our room overlooked the historic Fremont District which is always alive with sounds and bright imagery at night which prompted the hotel to offer earplugs for those guests were unable to sleep due to the noise.
This was not an issue for us and due to our busy day the following morning, we did not have any time to enjoy the numerous dining options that are offered on site in the restaurants and food court. After a long day of meetings and event coverage, we made our way back to the hotel and despite the numerous amenities and gaming that were on hand, opted for a quiet night of rest and enjoyed the Rocky marathon that was showing on one of the channels.
Our bed was very comfortable and allowed us to awaken refreshed for the next morning, and we found the Wi-Fi needs to be more than adequate for our needs such as uploading pictures when taken during the first day the convention. We made our way downstairs to the Hash House A Go-Go which had been featured prominently on the Food Network for an absolutely amazing breakfast.
Not only was our service first rate, but the coffee and fresh squeezed juice really helped start our day off right. The locale has an expansive menu dining options suitable for any time of day or night, and I opted for the chicken and waffles which honestly looked like a mini Christmas tree when it arrived with a garnish adorning the top of the plate. I joked with our server that they should tell people that the entrées are more than enough for two people or more and he jokingly told me that in the past when he had made such comments, some guests took offense to this implying that they wouldn’t be able to handle the amount of food that was served so he now let’s the guest be surprised.
The Sage coating was absolutely sensational and made for a very hardy and enjoyable breakfast experience that was as unique as it was filling. My wife enjoyed a meatloaf hash and eggs which came served in a cast-iron skillet and also were simply amazing.
After breakfast we had to check out and we promptly were on our way to the parking garage and thankful that the staff reminded me to keep one of our room keys take advantage of the complimentary parking for guests.
The Plaza has an upcoming game show with Todd Bridges from Different Strokes and offered a very diverse gaming area with any type of gambling that might enjoy.
The Plaza does offer some fantastic specials depending on the date that you select for your stay and you can also find some real values through Groupon.
While it doesn’t offer the flashy glitz of some of the newer hotels in Las Vegas; Guests looking for a clean and comfortable room with a solid range of amenities and the historic part of the Freemont District will want to check out the Plaza Hotel during their stay in Vegas.
