Sayonara Greek Isles!

Not exactly sure when this happened, but the Greek Isles has officially changed its name and junk to Clarion Hotel. I'm guessing this is an upgrade. Forgive us if this is ancient news to you, consider yourself one of the few, the proud, the keepers of the flame that is/was information about the old Greek Isles.

Way to go with the new sign/bag.

The Clarion Hotel and Casino offers the finest accommodations for the price in Las Vegas. Each clean and spacious room is well-equipped with a coffee-maker, mini-refrigerator, iron and board, hairdryer, work desk, free wifi and blackout draperies - comfort and amenities without the high cost.

And with that... it is time to remove the Greek Isles from the VegasTripping hotel guide.

RIP Greek Isles

Must have happened since Memorial Day. Drove past the joint on the way from HRH to the ECB party and it hadn't changed. Either that or I'm just blind as a bat.

one of the choice brands >

They had announced this awhile ago, but I think the signage is new. I seem to recall it will be non-gaming.

Seamless integration of the new signage and old. How could you tell they changed it?

Good riddance. I kept taking the short walk there every time I was out in Vegas for a while hoping that they would turn things around there. Sadly, it just constantly went downhill for about the past decade. Last time I was there even the employees were shitty. Combine that with rooms that bring new meaning to the word SPARSE, lack of any gaming besides two banks of slot machines, and a crappy location, there was no reason for this hotel to even exist. I'm sure the Clarion will be miles ahead of what the Greek Isles had turned into. Then again, I'm pretty sure I could say the same about Motel 6.

"The Clarion Hotel and Casino offers the finest accommodations for the price "

So we already know two things about this Clarion:

1. They're full of shit
2. "For The Price".....So they probably wont update it very much, and just keep the prices that were already in place.

Dave, I know right? Whew, its a good thing they put the "Formerly Greek Isles Hote/Casino" moniker on the screen, or else I never would have caught on.

Now where will I not go to see "The Rat Pack is Back"?
