Location – You will find the Rio Hotel and Casino on Flamingo Blvd, just west of the strip.

The Theme – The hotel’s name was inspired by the colorful South American city, and there is a distinct Brazilian flair that makes it a vibrant place to spend your Vegas days and nights.

Rooms – Every room is a spacious suite, and yet still priced for the penny pinchers. You get plenty of sleep and play room in your room, which can make the deal even sweeter if you are travelling with friends.

At the Rio you are taken on a culinary tour of the world with an appealing collection of globally inspired restaurants.

Gambling – The casino takes up over 100,000 square feet of the hotel, and that’s not including the 170 seat race & sports book.

Shows – Be shocked and awed by the antics of Penn & Teller, or moved to the beat at Rock of Ages. There is also adult-only entertainment like Chippendales at the Rio, and free live music at the Masquerade Village.

Clubs and Bars – Situated under the stars is the mystical Voodoo Rooftop Nightclub, where flair bartenders and talented DJs set the stage for a magical experience. Found 51 stories above the city, Voodoo puts a whole new spin on the Vegas party.

The Day Club – At the Rio, the emphasis is more on beach and less on party. White sand beaches and four distinct pools make this a tropical oasis in the heart of a city. Flair bartenders are on hand at two accessible bars, making it easy to waste hours away in sun-kissed bliss

Shopping – Masquerade Village is your Rio shopping destination, with over 60,000 square feet dedicated to unique boutiques and quick bites to eat. Included here is the exclusive Harley Davidson shop, where you’ll find all types of amusing items emblazoned with the famous brand.

Other Cool Stuff – In addition to its yearly role as host to the World Series of Poker, the Rio hosts a thrill of a completely different kind. The VooDoo Zipline starts at the 51st floor of the Masquerade Tower, and races you to the 20 story Ipanema Tower before bringing you back up again – backwards.

Worth the Stay? – There is enough variety at the Rio Hotel to make your distance from the strip unimportant. The array of restaurants and attractions combined with the comfy room rates make this an ideal Vegas home away from home.
