Harrah's Compare Casinos Tool

Not exactly sure how long this has been out there, but Harrah's has launched a Casino Comparison Tool in which you can analyze features, accommodations, events and dining at properties located in five of their largest markets : Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Reno/Tahoe, Tunica and the Gulf Coast. You can also do custom comparisons of any of their properties if you can't even decide where you want to go.

It's a pretty neat little application and - when bundled with Total Rewards info and their Slot Finder - offer great ways to help folks decide which hotel/casino offerings are best suited to their needs and desires.

The individual listings inside of each of the line items (casino, shopping, spa, salon, pool etc) have links to the pages on the various Harrah's properties websites that contain the specifics about each listing. It's like a gigantic automated sitemap of the entire Harrah's empire. I can see myself going to this thing first instead of trolling through all the marketing mumbo jumbo on the sites themselves in search of a bunch of restaurant options. Very cool.

An example : a simple comparison of the two palaces - Caesars and Imperial shows that those looking for fine dining have seven (or so) options at Caesars, and only one at the IP (Embers). For the hardcore Vegas freaks, this isn't a revelation at all, but for people who are casual Vegas tourists who don't know the difference between Bill's and Ballys this clarity would be quite helpful and steer them towards what they are looking for.

There are nuggets to be dug up by the experienced. For example, I had no idea that there was a shop in the "world's finest and most complete original Wurlitzer jukebox selection" is for sale at the Imperial Palace's Auto Collection. Go figure.

I also noticed that the Imperial Palace internet presence has been absorbed into the Harrah's template system. I don't make it a habit to visit the Imperial Palace's website very often, as I've generally got more interesting things to do, but one surmise form the new IP site that the big blue streaker isn't going to be blown up any time soon. Surprise surprise.

There is a bug on the Compare Casinos Tool, if you 'hide' some of the blocks of content by clicking the [-] they won't open again, at least on Safari 3.1.1.. Not a big deal, but still notable for the steadily growing chunk of Mac users out there.

Give the Harrah's Casino Comparison Tool a spin and let us know what you think.
