Spotted: Sad Toiletries at the Reopened Plaza Hotel

For all your hotel toiletry kleptos out there, we hate to tell you this but you aren't going to be happy with the toiletry swag available to pull at the newly reopened The Plaza Hotel in downtown.

The hotel stocks Paradise toiletries that look like they were grabbed from a hotel in Daytona Beach during the Spring Break heyday. And the hotel somehow felt the need to put in two bottles of body wash, perhaps as a way to make up for a missing bar of soap?

Needless to say, VegasChatter's disappointment with the Plaza doesn't end with its toiletries. Mr. Pappagiorgio writes:

Stepping into the room was more bow than wow. A musty smell was covered up with ode de new, admittedly only slightly better than ode de toilette. The room size and setup felt like the not too fancy but not too shabby Gold Spike rooms with newer furniture. The walls were bare spare one vintage photo of the Plaza. Also naked was the bed sans bedspread and bedskirt, making our nights sleep look more like this than this. The crack QA team also forgot to test out the bathroom since ours lacked power. Maintenance was able to get one fixture above the sink working but after 90 minutes gave up on shedding any light on the toilet and tub.

True, Mr. P checked out the hotel right when it reopened at the end of August so perhaps the opening kinks have been worked through. And if you need an affordable place in Vegas this weekend, the Plaza is just $53 a night. But you know, bring your own toiletries just to be safe.

Same exact thing

happened to me on opening weekend.  I get opening mishaps, but not having a blanket on the bed?  C'mon!


I have a feeling the "new" Plaza will be playing catch-up for a long time.
I may stroll into their casino on my next visit, but I could never stay there again. Stayed just before they closed and it was a nightmare.
Figure a company that could let their property get so rundown in the first place is always going to have issues.
