I was a regular at Harrah's and was a Seven Stars level in their Total Rewards program. I decided to try Hollywood Casino St. Louis last night and should have gone with my first instinct of walking out as soon as I walked in. The atmosphere was cold and uninviting. The decor when you first walk in looks like they were trying for Las Vegas glitz and ended up with nouveau riche bad taste. The employees walking around the casino floor all looked depressed or unhappy. I was there for almost 2 hours before I even saw a waitress who was actually the only person who I thought gave me a real smile. I was playing $1 slots ($3/pull). In 2 hours I lost $900. Now, I'm not one who thinks I'm not going to lose my money eventually, but my experience in this depressing atmosphere was definitely not worth $450 an hour. No one around me was doing any better. It was bad enough that I feel cheated. I won't be back unless I hear they've made major changes and I certainly won't recommend this casino to anyone. It's too bad, because when Harrah's was running it I really enjoyed the place and the people. I'll miss it.
