    Try the self check-in/check-out kiosks to the left of the front desk for a much simpler & faster check in. Works with corporate procurement cards as well. Skip the super long lines for the front desk.

    The Riviera has been an icon for over 50 years. It's one of the few old school Vegas hotels still operating on the Vegas Strip. Its legendary, Rat Pack history is reason enough to make a stop here.

    Ols skool, bit decent. If I wanted 110% luxury, I'd pay way more. I love the Riv for it's slow charm. Been here a few times. Bummed the buffet closed, but hey, I'm in the land of buffet.

    James Bond plays craps here in Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and wins $50,000, after tipping the croupier. He gives $5,000 to Plenty O'Toole, who he met at the table and invites her for 'drinks' at his.

    This hotel is classic! Great rates and our room was clean. Sign up for the players club card and check out the buffet! Ask for a coupon book for a free glass of wine or beer. Would stay here again!

    Check out the Kaci Machacyk show over at the Queen Vic pub on Tuesdays at 8! The voice of an angel! Come watch her and her friends sing some classics and some new stuff! Good time will be had by all!

    Just fine for the money. Our room was quiet and clean. Granted it is a bit if a hike to the big resorts. I was pleased with my stay.

    Definitely old school Vegas. Not a lot in walking distance since old Westward Ho & Stardust were taken down. If you want to gamble in a classic Vegas property away from the crowds, this is the place!

    Drink specials are NOT always a good thing. Got off the RTC bus and had a Riviera patron chuck a glass beer bottle at our feet. Clearly intoxicated. They should lose their liquor license.

    Great rates. Clean rooms. Dated decor but if you are looking for a place to sleep only, this is a great spot.

    Excellent choice if you prefer some quietness when gambling. A bit far to the center of the strip.

    By far the most overpriced hotel I've stayed in. The bed sheets were so scraped, I felt I was in a motel room. I could've done better at a motel 6 and saved money..

    This place has a food court, which is nice if you're up for lunch and aren't wanting the buffet, but it seriously is drenched with the smell of curry. Awful. Why are the cocktail servers all 60&up?!

    They do not have a full business center for people to get work done. They only have a UPS store that they call a business center. Also, expect slow wireless internet.

    This place is really cheap. We got a room at the North tower. It felt pretty terrible. The room had no coffee maker. And barely had enough plugs for our phones and what not. I would go elsewhere.
