I don't even gamble, but my spouse does, and the Sands is liberal about giving out free rooms if you use your card. We like the new bar with Mojitoes in the machines, Sinatra-themed drinks, and friendly bartenders who throw bottles around stylishly. Somehow I find this place very old-AC and comfy. We come for many a Thursday night. I wish the Sands would spruce up its restaurants, but it is still a great location and a fabulous deal especially if the room is free. The Boardwalk Buffet is actually pretty damn good too. Staff is always super nice everywhere!
Pros: Old-AC, Channel Sinatra, Copa Room
Cons: Smoky, Old-AC, Non-glitzy
