The Quick-Fix

Sleepmasks at Tropicana

What to do when you discover that, in your zeal to change everything, you've swapped out the industry standard blackout curtains in all of your rooms for light emitting louvered blinds, and that's not sitting well with your non-cockadoodledillian hotel guests?

Well, if you're the Tropicana, you simply provide complimentary sleep masks! I found the two sleep masks pictured above waiting for me, pillow-side, when I stayed at the Trop last week. A bit presumptuous, I thought, but fortunately, the hooker my wife and I hired was an early riser.

It does have me wondering, though, what other Las Vegas properties might find a quick-fix in cheap, sensory deprivation devices? Wynncore might address the club noise that infiltrates its guest rooms by providing free ear plugs. A resort-provided clothes pin, clipped to one's nose, would be helpful when walking in front of Caesars on a hot summer day. How about a disposable rubber glove station at Riviera? Free syrup of ipecac shots at the Imperial Palace buffet?

The noise at Wynncore is still a problem. And it don't seem to matter which tower you are in. But when you look at the money they make on those clubs, they sure aren't going anywhere.

Full body condom for Hard Rock.

I don't have any idea what solution there could be for the Wynncore noise, but it really sucks...unless you're on the golf-course side in the original tower. I'd love to stay at Encore, but with XS on one side and Surrender on the other, well, you're pretty much screwed no matter where your room is. Eventually, you'd think they'd realize that virtually every Encore review (and many Wynn reviews) on TripAdvisor mentions this...

At the Golden Gate, if your room faces Fremont Street, you need ear protection like you'd wear at a gun range and an industrial-sized white noise machine.....

A can of mace if you stay at the Western?

Free tetanus shots at Wild Bill's.

De-hipsterizing spray for TCOLV.

Some of these squishy-rug joints should have Hazmat booties on the nightstand for that trek to the john. Socks are just not enough.

In the most extreme example, they closed the Sahara because the noise from their roller coaster would wake their hotel guests at such an early hour.

Hot tubs full of sun screen at Vdara.

Some nitro-glycerin for F-Blew...Echelon...the remains of Sahara..Imperial Palace in general...
