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.
