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.
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...
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.
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.
