On Your Next Staycation, Expect More Resort Entertainment

For Your Entertainment: On your next staycation, expect more resort entertainment, including in-room, on-the-floor and in-lounge

Thanks to places like the Las Vegas Strip that offer guests close to anything their heart desires, staying at a resort is oftentimes much more than just the simple overnight stay. Not only is it about the room, the amenities and the service, but it’s also about what the resort can offer in terms of entertainment. In this case, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino Resort and many other resorts throughout the state are offering in-room activities, special concerts, events and gaming — to name a few of the resort entertaining options.

Gone are the days of a simple overnight stay. Guests can now expect to be impressed by more than just the room, but also some of the following amenities that will keep them entertained for the days and nights during their stay.

In-room entertainment

From movies to media hubs, there are plenty of options available to guests who want to be entertained in-room during their stay. The plug-and-play experience is at a guest’s fingertips with entertainment options like the media hub, including those available in Harrah’s Ak-Chin’s new hotel tower, which comes with the most commonly used industry standard connection ports (such as HDMI and USB) that allow guests to plug in anything from their laptop to their Nintendo Wii.

On-the-floor entertainment

No longer is the lobby or fine dining restaurant the key focus of the resort floor. Now guests also have a bevy of options, including casino gaming. Harrah’s Ak-Chin and many other casino resorts in Arizona offer everything from bingo and slots to blackjack. Boasting the largest selection of reel and video slots, video poker and table games from blackjack to World Series of Poker®, Harrah’s Ak-Chin is also home to the only bingo hall in the entire Caesar’s organization, which provides the latest in bingo technology and continues the proud heritage of William F. Harrah, who opened his first bingo hall in Reno in 1937.

In-lounge entertainment

In addition to gaming being a key entertainment option, another is live concerts and events, such as those held in Harrah’s Ak-Chin’s Oasis Lounge. Be it classic acts like The 5th Dimension (best known for their hit songs, including “Up, Up and Away” and “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In”), country favorites like Mark Chestnut or cover bands that play anything from Stevie Nicks to the best of the ’80s, the live entertainment options run the gamut — and best yet, they’re all free to both guests and Valley residents who are stopping in for a fun night on the town.

While these are just some of the entertaining options that resorts are rolling out, others can include anything from chef and wine dinners to special events and poolside activities for some fun in the sun. So whether you’re jet-setting to a new location or having a “staycation,” the opportunities to be entertained are right outside, or in some cases, inside your door.
