Nothing great or horrible sticks out when I think of IP. If you are looking for a cheap mid strip stay then check it out. They have the lowest rates you are going to find in the area when you consider they are surrounded by Harrah's, Caesar's Palace, Flamingo, Mirage and T.I. Food isn't the greatest unless you need a late night burger and the Burger Palace to sober up. Casino atmosphere is ok but again not great. If you're into cars, the Auto Collections is a great low cost way to spend a few hours. I make a point to every trip and if you get online before hand you can print out free tickets to get in. The location is about the only other thing that saves IP, it's nestled right in the middle of the strip so you can easily access both ends of the strip by foot or go out back and hit the Monorail.
Imperial Palace - Blah!
Does anyone remember the Boardwalk Casino? I never stayed there but I did gamble there and I have to say that the Imperial Palace hotel rooms compare to the casino and buffet of the old Boardwalk Casino, pretty pathetic. Slots: The casino itself is not all that bad, kind of has a cozy intimate feel to it. Slot machines are ok. Like I always say, the more Video Poker and Blackjack machines the better. Table Games: Love the Dealertainers. I think it's a great idea, but think the minimums should be kept at $5 for most table games, except for obviously when it's real busy on the weekends. Would like to see $3 blackjack here if it's not here already. Customer Service: Check in agents didn't seem like they wanted to be there, bad impression (this was about 2 years ago). Player's Club: I like the special discounts I get at the Harrahs properties with my card even if I just gamble under $400 a trip. It is much appreciated and I hope they keep up the great discounts. Sometimes you can get a room at IP for $20 a night even though you can't pay me to stay there anymore. Gaming Atmosphere: Ok, not great, not real bad, just ok. Amenities or Hotel: The hotel is B-A-D. Really bad. The elevators took forever and are real rickety and the city of LV should actually check those things out. I actually feared for my safety staying at that hotel seriously. No security, this hotel has to get remodeled in a bad way. It's also very hard to find your room with the crazy escalator setup that they have... Food & Drink: Wow, the buffet here was something to behold and I don't mean that in a good way. About the only good thing about the buffet was some of the entertainers from one of the shows or it could've been some of the dealertainers were eating there and it was fun seeing them, but the food was not good and it was cold...
Imperial Palace Las Vegas
I stayed at Imperial Palace from Nov 26 to Dec 1. Check in was quick and easy on a Saturday night. Room 1805 was clean and comfortable with king bed, TV and coffeemaker. Nothing fancy but just fine with me. The location, center strip, is great. The casino has plenty of slots from penny to $5. Most table games had $5 minimums, and the dealertainers put on a show. IP has plenty of places to eat like Hash House, Burger Palace, Bettys, Quesadillas, a buffet, a steakhouse and a pizza parlor. I enjoyed my stay at IP, and would definitely stay here again.
Over 30? Stay Away.
This is not the kind of place for anybody over 30. It's EXTREMELY loud and smoky, it's a long walk to your room, and the rooms remind me of a 70s Holiday Inn. Nothing special. It was just so crowded with kids and so loud, we won't stay there again. It has one redeeming quality. Location. That's it. It's mid-strip next to Harrah's and near all the action. 'Nuff said.
Not As Bad as People Say
Run Down? Yes.
Would I Sleep There? Probably Not.
Would I dine and gamble there? Yes.
Imperial Palace has low limits, and some decent dining options. My wife and I have dined at The Pizza Palace (nice little find) and Hash House A Go Go. Both are different, yet good choices in this Caesar's property.
Be sure to check out the cool karaoke bar here as well.
Really, it's old, but not a place to completely stay out of.
Dealertainers are, well... Dealing and Entertainin
Love the atmosphere of the IP! Loose live poker games going on here. Easy to make a buck if you play smart.
The dealertainers here are really good. It's a great place to sit near that gaming pit and watch while you play on a nearby slot machine.
Never stayed here, but will be in March on a comp with my Total Rewards.
Upstairs on the 3rd floor (I believe) called Quesadilla's that is awesome. One is big enough for two to share. There are usually people out on the Strip handing out coupons for buckets of Corona for $5...
On my trip to Las Vegas in April & Sept. I stopped in at the IMPERIAL Palace. I was not impressed and could not see
myself staying there. However, we did eat at the House Hash A-Go-GO, which my husband liked. I thought it was over
rated. I played a few slots, however, they really need to update. My husband enjoyed the car show.
This place seriously gives me the creeps
This place reminds me of the evil lair in some bad Bruce Lee movie. The blackjack pays the lowly 6-5 and should be avoided at all costs. The dealers are horribly slow. I've never stayed here just because you hear the people grumbling near the elevators. It's also the only buffet on Buffet of Buffets that I've never been to because I would never stay here long enough to eat. This is one creepy place.
We really enjoy the car shows they have. Haven't stayed in their rooms, but the casino seems pretty friendly and the gambling pays off occasionally.
Imperial Palace Hotel & Casino
We stayed at the Imperial Palace Hotel & Casino one time a long time ago. Since then we tried to use a 2 for 1 breakfast buffet one time but because of the bad traffic and a problem finding a parking space we arrived 5 minutes late for the buffet. They wouldn't let us in so we left.
Good Slots and fun old school
I like this old school casino right in the middle of the strip. No Greek statues or volcanoes here just rock and roll and good paying slots.
Only place we stay
I have read a lot of reviews about Imperial Palace (IP) and most of them are negative. This hotel is the first one we stayed at and the only one we will stay at as long as it is open. It just feels like home to us. You can't ask for a better location being smack dab in the middle of the strip. The monorail station in the back is truly a blessing and makes getting all over the strip so much easier. The buffet is marginal but with the Buffet pass that harrah's introduced last year, it is a nice place to grab a mid-afternoon snack or a quick bite.
The staff is very courteous and helpful. If you come to vegas to spend a lot of time in your room then you may want to stay somewhere else as the rooms are small, but if you are here like we are to play and only need a decent place to sleep then this is your hotel. Elevators are a little slow on weekends but there are two banks of them and with a little luck your wait will be short.
I agree with the other reviews that the dealertainers make the place. regardless if you play table games or the slots, there is such a great variety that everyone will find something.
Good Value for Center Strip
The best thing about the IP is the location. The second best thing is the price. It has the least expensive rooms of the Harrah's Properties in Las Vegas, and the most liberal comps. A moderate amount of play will generate good comp offers for rooms, food,and beverage.
It's close to everthing center strip, so you won't need a car. The slots are typical of the strip, and table games have typical strip rules and limits, although somewhat lower lately with the downturn in the economy.
The rooms are clean and adequate, but this is not the Ritz folks. Go for a Deluxe room rather than a Capri room, fully renovated and newer beds.
They have the dealertainers there, dealers dressed up as stars. Some are pretty good. Some sing and dance. The auto collection is interesting so check that out if you like old and exotic cars.
For the location and price, you can't beat the IP on a budget.
IP casino is a fun place to play with friendly dealers and good cocktail service. The casino floor is usually busy in the evenings with people enjoying the dealertainers. If you want to have fun and be entertained then give the IP a shot!
I recommend this hotel to everyone. The price was right, it offers anything you'd want, great value. We walked all over, tried many casinos and found "ours" to be the best luck. We won enough to pay for our whole trip. Love the bar area between IP and Harrah's. Great fun.
I must say the most entertaining casino in Vegas is the Imperial Palace. The dealertainers were great and made losing money fun and almost worth it.
