Reeling from Vegas

I just got back from Las Vegas and I’m still reeling from the experience. I have never been anywhere that caters in its entirety to fancy and frivolity. One really understands the concept of tourism and customer service in Vegas. Tourism dollars will be dropped in a city that is set up in a way to squeeze every last dollar out of visitors. However, tourism dollars will be given up with a smile and repeatedly so with superior customer service. This trip to Vegas has inspired me to revisit the Detroit casinos and see how they measure up in regards to fancy and customer service. I have found in the past that without gambling there is little to capture my attention in these casinos, however in the Vegas casinos there was so much else to do that gambling was the last thing on the agenda.

    I fear you will find that the Detroit casinos far from measure up.

    to me Las Vegas casinos are a source of entertainment even if just sitting at a bar and looking around while the Detroit casinos are just a place to gamble. period

    Customer service at Casinos in the D stink! I tried to take a picture of a staircase and was rudely reprimanded by the staff at Greektown. I can understand not being allowed to take photos near the gambling tables, but this was no where near that. In comparison, Caesar’s Windsor has superior customer service and I can take photos inside, as long as it’s not near the gambling tables. Greektown stinks. I’d never go back there again! When I was leaving, I heard others complaining that they’d never return either.
