Horseshoe FAQ

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get about Horseshoe Las Vegas:

Horseshoe and Harrah’s have a lot of similarities. Both resorts offer rooms for around $39/night (plus resort fee) and have a good location on The Strip. Both have multiple shows, great casino floors, and lots to do.

In our opinion, both resorts rank about the same. The hotel rooms at both Horseshoe and Harrah’s have been recently renovated. Both pools are average resort pools.

Horseshoe gives you direct access to Paris Las Vegas, the Bazaar Shops, and the Bellagio Fountains. Harrah’s gives you quick access to The LINQThe Venetian, and Mirage and its volcano.

Otherwise, these hotels are relatively equal. We recommend booking the one that excites you the most.

If you’re actively gambling, drinks at Horseshoe are comped. If you’re playing video poker or slots at a bar, you’ll need to put $20 in your machine. If you’re on the tables or casino floor, ask a cocktail waitress for your beverages.

Pro tip: Las Vegas is a cash town that thrives off of tips. Don’t be cheap. Tip $5, $10, heck $20, and your bartenders and cocktail servers will show you a better time. You’ll get premium service, better liquor, and a better experience.
