I stayed at Stratosphere Hotel for 4 nights during Super Bowl weekend. The rooms had been updated since I last stayed there a year prior and were not fancy but clean. Matress on bed was very nice, much improved from last stay.
Amber, my host, was very helpful. The biggest complaint I have is that they removed all of their 100% pay video poker games in the $.50 and $1 category. They no longer have any progressive video poker either.
It seems they keep putting in more and more penny slots and removing everything else. Stay away from the buffet. It is one of the worst in Vegas.
