Hi everyone - I consider myself a rookie at poker, I used to play some online. I've only played in Poker Rooms about 5 times (Morongo, near Palm Springs, Bally's in LV and Harrah's).
We got to a table around 10pm Friday night. Harrah's room is near the Sports Betting area and has it's own room about 10 tables. Action seemed quite small, maybe 5 no-limit tables and two tournament tables finishing up.
My friend is a big fan of poker and plays online, but had never played in a Casino (that's why we picked Harrah's). We asked to play together at a 1/2 table and waited about 15 minutes, they started a new table for us. We each bought in for $100.
We both played really tight until we got comfortable with the table. It seemed like the typical crowd... 2-3 people who play semi-tight and make money, 3-4 touristy type people who think they are good and 2 donkeys, who love flushes.
I didn't really have any notable hands, but the table was playing really tight, so about half-way through our play, I loosened up. I was fortunate to get some decent cards, when the donkey of the table wanted to chase his flush/straight/anything draws.
Best part, was when Scotty Nguyen showed up to the room. Everyone pretty much stopped playing, he was tossing chips to each dealers as tips. After a little while he came up to our game and threw a black chip, with his picture on it into the pot. Some guy bet $100 pre-flop for it (he also had AK).
I finished up about $150, my friend finished even.
Harrah's room is decent and not very intimidating for a rookie. Drink service was pretty good. Dealers where so-so.

Impressions: It was an average room. Perfect for newer players.
Atmosphere: All of Harrah's is older. It had about 10 tables.
Dealers: Some of the dealers where good. On in particular wasn't that great. He was commenting about how tight our table was under his breath
Food: Drink service was fast.
Service: Waited about 10 minutes and they started a new table for us.

Impressions: I have played here three times and the easy competition has made it more than enjoyable. Either lucky in my timing, or the room just does not attract the better players. It is also very pleasant, because of the glass enclosure, the quietness, and the non-smoking. I played the first time by myself and then came back twice with some buds for great evenings.
Atmosphere: Chairs were OK, standard, not as plush as in some rooms, but serviceable. Tables had those auto shufflers and clean felt. Being a sports buff, I liked having all those TV's around the room, and management was very cooperative in putting on the events requested. The room had enough space between tables for service traffic to not interfere.
Dealers: The dealers were, in my few visits, very competent and knowledgeable. Games were run efficiently, and, as a group, these dealers were about as good as I have seen in Vegas.
Food: I do not drink anything but water, so I personally do not have much contact with the waitresses, but my buddies like to imbibe a bit and they seemed happy, especially since they were fortunate to have the seemingly only good looking lady among the staff.
Service: Top notch management team were very helpful. We were seated very quickly, chips were brought to table, and our TV requests were taken care of in a friendly manner. We never had any problems at our table, but there were some bozos at an adjoining table,who were loud & disruptive, and were making life miserable for their table mates. One of the managers came over, and in the gentlest manner set these guys straight. They seemed to get the point quickly and behaved properly afterwards. One gets the sense that management's aim is to create a great environment in this room, and they are doing it.
Comps: Harrah's uses the total rewards card for $1.00/hour play. They also had high hand Jackpots for quads and above.
