Harrah's is one of nine Caesars Entertainment owned casino-hotels in Las Vegas and the Northern-most of the cluster of eight on the Vegas Strip. It has a long and colorful history.
The property was originally the Tumbleweed motel back in 1949, after which it became the Riverboat Casino (1971), and then the Holiday Casino (1973) before acquiring its present name in 1992. The property underwent a major renovation and expansion in 1997. Harrah's Las Vegas is now part of the huge conglomerate of Caesars Entertainment owned properties worldwide participating in the highly acclaimed Total Rewards Program. With more than 2,500 rooms and suites, guests can choose from a wide variety of accommodations.
Harrah's Las Vegas does not have a reputation as being particularly child-friendly. However, it is home to three long running shows that are perfect for children. In addition, its fabulous center Strip location puts its guests in easy walking distance of many more family-friendly attractions and entertainment options, both at other Caesars Entertainment owned casino hotels and at other properties such as the Mirage and the Venetian. Harrah's is not the fanciest hotel on the Strip by any means, but considering its exceptional location, the very reasonable room rates make staying there a bargain.
