Play, spa, buffet and Patrick at Williams "Bs" steak house will never let you be unsatisfied or unhappy in any way. At William "Bs" youll dine alone, as a couple or two dozen in a private dining area. Salads fresh and imaginative, soups (The Lobster bisque will amaze ) , every side to your entree will be warm and tantalizing, the entrees! "What temperature would you like your steak?" And the are serious. The steak knife is for tradition not necessity, you can almost cut it with your spoon. Try the Beef wellington for one or two! They always have specials if the day, catch, vegetables and deserts you cant finish , nor would you want to: a small bite after Will bring back the memories and the smiling faces of the servers, host and the bartenders can make anything in the book more that one way and added a few pages. If you need tables for a group or a romantic clove for two or four , the is the place you will have it. That said: every month , if you enjoy machines, play them all because the latest new machines will be there next visit. Tables large and smalk. Weather permitting on the upper deck you can play or be invited to private events, wow. Whit a HUGE "Stardust room" live venue youll experience yesterday, today and entertainers of the future! # Meeting rooms/business services , more than youll need. Anniversarys, weddings, birthdays. Reunions or any gathering. You can ever have the bring some joy to you. With catering, motorcycle rides, custom or rare car drives and shows lest we forget: veterans, first responders or individual group heros. A sports themed venue, nightclub venue and even a 24-7 deli so that the clock or Calenders never stops for you. The rooms are the greatest or beyond belief in two towers with a fill spa in one and a full pool and exercise gymnasium in the other. Private trainers and private areas are at your request so you will leave better than you arrived so that all your needs and wants are provided. The buffet is truly a trip around the culinary planet from America to Europe to Asia and back. Want to take a shopping trip? The lighthouse mall is minutes away and mini malls in all directions of the compass. Finally the area is growing so fast the state of Indiana decided the a upgraded interstate entrance was needed. A medical center is under construction with two motel complexes under construction for the growth and over flow. 15 years ago we came to Blue Chip near " Mayberry" : Now Michigan City is no longer a small village but a substantial City! We drive over 100 miles two or three times a month, passing by all the other nearby Casinos to go to blue chip and now since their guests are coming from further and further away , we are being mailed coupons to help subsidize fuel. William Binion left a jewel in Indiana for us to enjoy as we did and will when we return to Vegas and his other dreams around the country. It was a stop on a crammed short vacation: now we have retired they are landmarks and waypoints to go anywhere any time! I we like to thank him. Well tell you more as soon as our tried hands can continue to type the many treasures weve still would like to mention. So much to remember and so many new adventures there we are yet to enjoy.
Ok. I have a LOT to say about this place, as I am a frequent visitor, and have been for the last 8 years. Bare with me. First of all, the casino itself: its improved a lot. The slot machines used to be so tight, but now theyre a lot looser. (Thank you four winds). The table games are awesome, also. Most of the staff is very friendly, although Ive met a couple dealers that Id like to have fired due to their attitudes. (I will not play at the tables as long as these dealers are there). The points program is pretty cool, although if you dont have a lot of money, it takes a long time to hit higher tiers. It took me 6 years to hit emerald status because every month they take some points away from your card. I dont know why they do this. Anyway, they tend to treat higher tiered customers a lot better, but you have to keep spending in order to renew your status every 6 months. Also, they are very good about comping if you lose a little. (About $100 loss will get you a couple buffets). The bars: I dont really have a lot to say about these, as I dont drink much. However, my personal experience says they are clean establishments with friendly wait staff and expensive drinks. $7 for a daiquiri? No, thank you. The restaurants: I love the buffet! The wait staff (Most of them) know me and are quite sweet. My only complaint is that the last couple times I went with my friend, we went without refills for almost our whole meal. I spoke with a manager and had it taken care of, but its still something to be aware of. The deli - eh. Its not bad but it leaves a lot to be desired. If it gets busy, youre in for quite a wait, and the food is ok...but Ive had a better Italian beef at a bar - for about half the price. William bs is very high end, but I really cant complain about the food. I had a stuffed pork chop with feta, cranberries, and spinach I believe... and it was delicious. :) Finally, the hotel: very nice. Ive had no bad experiences with the rooms themselves. They are just lovely. (Im a non-smoker so Ive only seen these rooms, on both sides.) My only real complaint is that if you stay in the spa blu tower, you have to walk to the other side to use the pool and work out room. The pool and hot tubs are nice, but the work out room was sub par. Most of the machines needed serious maintenance. I cant rate the spa services, as Ive never used them. My other complaint is that for the free rooms, emerald members used to be waived from the $50 deposit. They changed that. I wrote the company and they actually wrote me back saying they couldnt do that anymore, but never explained why exactly, and then proceeded to say if I ever wanted to go to Las Vegas, they would help accommodate me, but didnt say how. I found that quite amusing. Overall: Im giving 4/5 stars because I really enjoy this establishment as a whole, but I still see areas that need improvement.
I booked this hotel, deluxe king non smoking room, for a 2 day getaway for my girlfriend and I. Upon entering the building, all I smelled was cigarette smoke coming from the casino, which is the majority of the casino floor. I was impressed with the front desk employees, as check in was fast and easy, and I was able to get in early, also. Upon entering our room, I did an inspection and found several uncleaned fixtures, dirty corners, peeling wallpaper, and even a bottle cap under the drapes. I posted my disappointment, with pictures, on their website, as to warn potential patrons, and ended up getting a response from management the next morning. The manager expressed her embarrassment, apologized, and gave us an upgrade to a suite at no extra charge. She said that she personally inspected the room and guaranteed the room was perfect. Upon my inspection, I found her idea of clean was not up to my standards. I found the chrome designer lamp, over the table, to be coated with dust. The mirrors in the bathroom had thick dust on top of them. And even one w section of a wall in the bathroom had some kind of splatter on it. I accepted the room, without complaint, and moved on. We also were given each a meal ticket, for any of the in house dining facilities, which we did utilize. The buffet was worth the price, but not much more. The lobby of the hotel, along with the rooms, is overdue for an update. The crystals, hanging from the ceiling, are yellowed and somewhat tacky. So, to make the best of our stay, we headed to the casino with $40. After about 4 hours of hitting the slot machines, we walked out with about half of what we started with, and smiles on our faces. Now, the biggest issue. Shortly after midnight, on night 2, my girlfriend had left our room to get some ice, and when she came back, her key wouldnt work. I let her in, then tried my key, thinking she was using the key from our first room, without success. I decided it could wait until morning, and we laid down for sleep. Well, a short time later, a bill was slipped under our door, with a message that my card was declined for the room. Only, I had prepaid for this room, and did not leave more room for more than an incidentals charge. It appears that their system automatically charges for rooms at midnight, whether you paid in advance or not. Overall, our stay was good. We had fun. We probably wont come back, at least not until it is updated.
