Rat Pack nostalgia with bawdy shows, Vegas fun

The Riviera Hotel and Casino enjoys a legendary past as one of the first top-notch Las Vegas hotels in the State of Nevada, known for its big name entertainment and friendly hospitality, as well as its worldwide name recognition. The Riviera is one of the State’s premier destination spots offering the passion and excitement of nostalgic Las Vegas and the Rat Pack Era, combined with a modern day, multi-million dollar remodeling of rooms and convention facilities, bringing the property up to par with today’s mega-resort competition.

Location: North Las Vegas Strip

Highlights of the Riviera Hotel

Endowed with a name invoking the Rat Pack Era, the Riviera keeps ties with its past while offering modern services at moderate prices. It emphasizes grace rather than flash, attracting adult guests seeking pleasure without having to endure crowds of sightseers surging through the casino and public areas.

• Located just a half-mile from the Convention Center and one mile from Fashion Show Mall, this Strip hotel provides traditional Las Vegas fun.

• Bearing its nostalgic name, the Riviera provides classic dining and the traditional Las Vegas trinity of comedy, music, and showgirls.

• Attractions include an extra-large casino, and all-you-can-eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets.

Amenities at the Riviera Hotel

In a tranquil, sunny courtyard bordered by a lush grass sunning area, a large pool furnishes hot-weather relief. For pampering, a spa offers a fitness center, massage, body treatments, tanning facility, a women’s sauna, and a men’s steam room. Shoppers have an arcade to explore. Tennis players enjoy two complimentary lighted courts.

Insider tip: Like all other Las Vegas casinos, the Riviera offers free membership in a player’s club that rewards gaming play with points redeemable for cash and comps. Unlike most casinos, however, here players don’t have to line up to obtain their rewards at a desk but can utilize ATM-like kiosks.
