The young lady who assisted us at the front desk -her name is Olivia, was extremely helpful and added a real value to staying at the hotel.. I hope all the people you have working at the front desk are that good --if not --you should have the young lady teach them customer service -Great stay- we will come again !!!
I live in the Peoria area and have been frequenting the Par-a-dice for the last 15 years or so. I used to win occassionally, but a few months before the smoking ban took effect on 1/1/08, the machines quit paying out even minimal amounts.
I'm sure they were tightened up to prepare for the massive loss of revenue due to the smoking ban. I might as well just throw my money over the side of the boat and get it over with quickly, instead of prolonging my misery!
As a smoker, in a smoke-free environment, not only am I inconvenienced while I'm loosing money, I'm annoyed too!!!
