The Real Deal on Orleans:

The Orleans is one of the best of the off-Strip locals-centric casinos which can be summarized thusly: value. From dining to hotels to shows to the casino, the Orleans offers some of the best bang for the buck you'll find anywhere in Las Vegas. Competitive payouts on slots and video poker keep the locals and budget conscious tourists staying and playing.


The Casino at Orleans

Table games include Craps, Roulette, Blackjack, Let It Ride and Pai Gow Poker. They also have a 23-table Poker room, 24 hour Keno, 3000 slot machines in varying denominations as well as agressive payouts on video poker. The poker room offers daily tournaments at 12 noon and 7pm (Hold Em, 7 Card Stud and Omaha)


The Rooms at Orleans

Nice clean recently redesigned (2008) rooms at a great price. If you don't mind staying away from the action and like something a little bit quieter (compared to Hard Rock, Palms or Rio) the Orleans is a great place to stay. Rooms range from $55 midweek to $129 for special event weekends (tournaments etc). Be sure to check your BConnected players card for promos, deals and offers.


The Restaurants at Orleans

Orleans offers numerous dining options including Canal Street for steaks & seafood, Prime Rib Loft for even more steak, Big Al's Oyster Bar, French Market Buffet (open till 10pm), Don Miguel's Mexican food, Courtyard Cafe 24 hr coffee shop, Koji Sushi Bar and China Bistro because all asian food can be lumped under one roof, TGIFridays, Seattle's Best Coffee (which it isn't), Subway, Fuddruckers and Sbarro in the food court. All good food, reasonably priced... good value.

My family's favorite budget resort. My father is always taken care of, and always given a comped room. Good to see those rooms are being renovated as they are really outdated. Those little windows in the bathroom always help when you have to cook while on a 'budget' vacation.

The Orleans has never steered us low/mid rollers wrong! Free rooms anytime, no resort fees, upgrades to a suite, best bar service in town, rooms are clean, great bathroom with a window outside in the shower, everyone is friendly, good pit energy, great slot hosts, good dining options, nice pool and hot tub!

OK, so the location isn't perfect, but they have a free shuttle to/from the strip and the free rooms and generous booze flowing outweighs the cost of a cabs by a mile - no pun intended ;)

Good value rooms, only a short trip to the Strip, huge casino with Downtown style limits.

Not somewhere for a first time Vegas visitor, but a worthy option for the regular Vegas goer.

We have been staying at or visiting the Orleans since they opened and it is one of our very favorite places to play and stay. Rooms are very large as is the casino. Table games are plentiful and cocktail waitresses are around frequently.

We are low rollers, but are treated very well and have received 2 free room nights a couple times per year for the past 7 years or so.

As mentioned, the rooms are large, comfortable - and quiet. They are a great place to rest and recharge after a big day of Vegas overload. Beds are comfortable and the bathrooms have plenty of room.

The casino is very large with plenty of games both new and classic - and there are lots of tables as well.

The buffet is very good and priced reasonably. Nothing too fancy but food is hot and fresh.

A little off the Strip but can take the bus. Has a great New Orleans feel to it. A little different atmosphere that other places in Vegas. A wonderful $7.99 Breakfast Buffet.

My favorite local spot.. Cheap beer at the bar(s), hot waitresses, the champagne brunch is mediocre but editable. I've never stayed here but I've won a lot and lost a lot here. The bowling is worth it. And the place always smells good.

A great value with bigger than average rooms, the rooms have a seating area (not a table and chairs! A full size sofa and love seat with coffee table.)

The Orleans is truly my home away from home. I've been staying there for about 15 years and it's so nice to see the same faces at the front desk and pouring comped beverages (liberally) year after year. It tells me that the organization takes care of it's people and at least tries to keep them happy.

The rooms are always clean, large enough for what we need and the bathroom has a friggin window in the shower! It's awesome!

The buffet and cafe are both super values and very good quality for the price. Koji has some tasty sushi and I hear Don Miguels is also really good.

The slot hosts there are always good to the "low-rollers" and while we don't get ALL our food comped, I haven't paid for a room there in over a decade.

Now I know late at night and other periodic times some "colorful" characters (drunks, very "friendly" ladies, etc) can be found at The Orleans, but I've never had a problem there and I look at it is adding a little "spice" to things so it's all good.

Not on the strip but still a favorite of mine. Cheap drinks and a ton of gambling going on there. 2 for 1 hotdogs plus $1 beers on a occasion. Great way to spend the afternoon at if you like bowling. they have 70 some lanes of proffesional bowling lanes. Very cool place

Crazy busy, but lots of fun for tables and slots. Oldies shows, many down to earth food choices including a great buffet.

It's our "go to" place when we go to Vegas. It caters to locals, and they have a great pool with a large tropical jacuzzi. They also have a great movie theater and bowling alley. Great buffet. All Boyd properties have Senior days on Mondays, more points and discounts. Big rooms with lots of space. Always get treated very well by the staff.

Another "Off Strip" Casino with hot blackjack action. Plenty of games to choose from. $5.00 tables here. Love the decor. Great Cajun food ! .. Makes you feel like you're in New Orleans.

Stay here all the time! Great machines! Great poker room! Super sports book! Very friendly staff! Big rooms plus a little window in the bathroom that lets you gaze out as you are scrubbing up for the day. Shuttle service over to the Gold Coast and Rio is great! Really enjoy this place!

This is a fun hotel. The lounge bands always get the crowds jumping and the drinks are good. I like the casino atmosphere at night, a good crowd. Husband likes the seafood buffet on Fridays. Nice break from the strip.

The rooms were larger than one would expect for the price. Love the layout of the casino (vaguely zig-zag pattern makes everything seem easily-accessible), the food is decent, and Brendan's Irish Pub is a great place to have a whiskey or two. The video poker has decent paytables (am addicted to their 5-hand 9/6 JoB), and the drink service is AWESOME.On the downside, the beds are uncomfortable, the pillows suck, and last time we were there, some manner of insect feasted on us every night. The air conditioner is positioned such that if you close the window to block out the light from the Strip, you block the airflow - not a good thing in summertime. Overall, though, a great place to stay on the cheap if distance from the Strip is not a big issue (Rio and Palms are in fairly close proximity).

Off strip doesn't mean you have to settle for less. Room was spacious and extra clean. Staff was very helpful. Casino is not as swanky as the strip properties, but there is plenty of action. The drink service is awesome!

I am always lucky at the Orleans so I always go back. I don't like the rooms because I didn't like hanging my clothes in the bathroom and I prefer to have a safe in my room. The lights were not very bright in the bathroom or at the table in the room where I put on my makeup

It was refreshing walking down a smokey hallway. Felt as I was home again (Stardust)... The buffet is good, I ate there several times every trip. Terrible Mike's was good, but they took that out awhile ago.
