Harrah's Metropolis Casino Hotel Review
Harrah’s Metropolis has been known as "The Boat" to visitors since it opened in 1993 but that changed at the end of 2014. The boat has sailed and the casino has moved into the convention center attached to the hotel so everything is on one level and visitors have all of the amenities at their fingertips. Metropolis is an easy drive from Nashville and St. Louis and this should be a great shot in the arm to this venerable Metropolis, Illinois landmark.
Currently the property offers 24,269 square feet of gambling space and serves an average of 1823 players daily. On offer are 800 slots and video poker machines with a dedicated VP room. Not counting poker there are 22 table games. The poker room now has 5 tables spreading Texas Hold 'em. The casino is open 24 hours and the poker room opens at 6pm on most days, 11am Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The property offers three restaurants including the new Bridges Dining Company, concerts in the Riverfront Event Center, and a hotel with 252 rooms.
