The Best Part of Waking Up? VegasChatter's Guide to In-Room Coffee

March 4, 2013 at 4:38 PM | by | Comments (11)

We know that Starbucks are practically a dime a dozen these days in Vegas hotels thus ensuring we never have to go without strong caffeine during our trip, but... sometimes that morning java trip can be long. First, there's the walk from your room to the elevator. Then you have to make your way out of the elevator lobby through the casino full of distractions before finally arriving at Starbucks where you have to wait in a decent-sized line. Wouldn't it be nicer just to have the coffee readily available in your room without having to place a room service order?

Fortunately, many casinos are hip to the one-cup coffee craze from Keurig and other brands. But, it's near impossible to track down who offers what in what rooms and what tower and for how much. But, never fear. That's why we're here.

Here's our first-ever Guide to In-Room Coffee. We've listed the properties that we know for certain offer coffee in the rooms and for how much. If the hotel you're looking for is not on the list, it probably doesn't have in-room coffee. Got any coffee tips to share? Tell us in comments below and we'll update it in our story.

THE STRIP

Free coffee GN??

Actually when we've stayed in the GN Gold Club Rooms, the one cup in-room Keurig cups are, I believe, a charge - 3 cups for 10 bucks.  But they have free (albeit,crappy) coffee down the hall by the elevators.  Desperate times call for desperate measures.....

GN and Hotel32

dalchap is correct, GN Gold club offers free hallway coffee, but in-room, $10 for three like everybody else.

Also, only Loft Suite and Penthouses have the Jura Espresso coffee makers.  Studios and Suites (the 700 sq ft ones) have the Keurig coffee makers last I checked.

You can take it with you

I travel with my own coffee maker, grounds, raw sugar and creamer.  It's worth it to me to be able to have the perfect cup of morning coffee - right in my room before I do anything else.

Updated

Thanks to @dalchap and @MarkDC for the updates. I made the changes to the Golden Nugget and Hotel 32 sections!

K-Cups

Before I travel anywhere I throw a few k-cups in my bag just in case there's a machine. I drink way too much coffee.

Sad

Seems not one property has the vision to have an in-house roaster and to think out of the commodity coffee box.

Good to know

I have never figured out why Vegas hotels don't put coffee makers in the rooms. They want you out gambling. I get it. For that reason I can see the no mini bar, but coffee? Really? Like someone is going to sit in the room all day drinking coffee? Anyway, thanks for the info. My morning coffee is important enough that I will select our next hotel based on the criteria here. Thought about bringing my own coffee maker but we always fly in. Could probably go to Walgreens on the strip and buy a coffee maker and coffee and then just leave it in the room.....cheaper than what some hotels charge for coffee service.

@liz22go

Back in "the day", hotels started removing them amid claims that the coffee makers could not be kept sanitary (and there is some truth to that... do you really want the maid rinsing it out in the bathroom and using a towel that has been used who-knows-where).

That's when the concept of just buying one caught on. A coffee maker and a small canister of coffee from Walgreens is going to cost less than running downstairs to get it or K-cups from the mini-bar.

Unsanitary

I also recall news stories with hidden video of cleaning crew using dirty bath towels to clean the coffee pot and cups! Gross!!!

Staying at New York, New York right now

And I wish there was at least one of those old coffee makers so I could heat up some hot water for my tea. Then again, there's like 378 Starbucks downstairs. I should probably hit up one of them.

Just add water

Whether big or small, I'm sure hot water is available at all hotels.

Whip out a handy sachet of Organo Gold gourmet coffee, it contains just the right amount, add to hot water and stir. Voila, easiest solution ever....pun intended.
