The New Rooms : The M Suites at Harrah's Las Vegas

Harrah's Goes Modern... Oh Yeah?

Harrah's Las Vegas M Suites Review

In addition to the newly refurbished standard rooms at Harrah's Las Vegas, Harrah's Entertainment has recently upped the ante at their flagship Las Vegas property with a brand new offering - the M Suites. Taking cue from the wildly successful - and adventurous - Flamingo GO Rooms, the new M Suites (dial M for modern) give Harrah's notoriously stodgy rooms a thorough kick in the slacks, perfect for the suite seeking set.

Bedecked with a crazy quilt of contrasting textures and colors - deep maroons and browns, candy coated plastiques, two tone floral nebulae prints, topped off with curvy edges and brushed nickel fixtures - Harrah's new M Suites land somewhere between the J-Pop sci-fi of the Go Rooms and the sheer outlandish decor of the new rooms at the Mirage.

The M Suites were designed by Kurstin Schmidt at Urbane Design Associates whose resume includes suites & room designs for Caesars Palace, Ballys, Monte Carlo, Silver Legacy (Reno), Harrah's Reno and Harrah's Lake Tahoe among others. Perhaps the best known design from Urbane Design is the new(ish) poker room at Caesars Palace.

Harrah's Las Vegas M Suites Review

Living Room

The living area features an L-shaped couch, dining area, granite counter mini bar and - gasp - no carpeting other than a Target styled throw in the living room area (which matches the carpet in the bedroom). Presumably there is a flat panel TV on the wall not pictured to the left, facing the couch. Whereas the GO Room succeeds by its sparseness, the M Suite lays on the modern decor but in a very conservative way. The overabundance of wall hangings lend a more residential feel to the living room - which is nothing like the bedroom. Who knows if this was intentional as it is in the suites at the Venetian.

You can't tell by the photo at this resolution, but the hi-def version reveals that the popcorn ceiling wasn't removed, as has is the case in most of the room reconstructions propping up in Las Vegas over the last year or two.

Comments & Discussion

Gary Loveman must have been listening to the latest Vegas Gang podcast where the boys were talking about how Harrahs doesn't reinvest in their properties like MGM does.

Ha! I still just couldn't get too excited about staying at Harrahs.

I liked the rooms until I saw the bathroom.....that wallpaper is horrible! It looks like someone's grandma's bathroom. I get what they're trying to do with it but still its way to much

i find the rooms very interesting but that doesnt mean that I would choose to stay at Harrah's and I am a Total Rewards member. The wall paper in the bedroom is kind of barf worthy and the floral pattern in the bathroom isnt that great either. As for how much I would pay for a night I have to remember that this it still Harrah's. Would I be willing to spend more than 200-300 a night for a suite in a hotel that isnt the greatest to begin with? I would say maybe. Its an interesting move but i dont know if it's going to get a lot of folks to pick Harrah's over a more well regarded hotel.

Well I was doing just fine until you mentioned the wallpaper was the color scheme of Freddy Krueger's sweater. Now that image is stuck in my mind. OK, I'm a chicken, but if the price is right, I probably would still check out the rooms. Thanks for the review, can't wait for the walkthrough.
