The room itself is tiny, too tiny, in fact, for the three tables crammed in. When the cocktail waitresses finally made it into the room, they had to go all the way around all three tables to get to my seat in the corner. Fotunately for them, the room wasn't that big. It is that cheesey Hooters orange, but new, and nice enough to be sure. The energy in the room was good.
Surprisingly, the competition was as good as anywhere else I played this past weekend (2/1 - 2/5/06). Players were pretty solid, with mostly tight pre-flop play and a mostly agreesive, shrewd post-flop game. At least one exception to this rule was my best friend, and best man at my wedding next month, who overlooked the fact that he made a straight-flush wheel. Sure he won the hand, but could have won a lot more money if he wasn't playing afraid of the "bigger flush". Too funny. He ended up winning a lot of money over the course of his three-hour session. I guess that tells you the competition wasn't of professional caliber.
The dealers seemed pretty good - experienced, friendly, patient, but not too patient. There were no real events during my play, so it's hard to lean one way or the other.
The cocktail waitresses were completely overwhelmed. The player to my right remarked that he waited 40 minutes for his beer to come. I was there on the first day Hooters opened, and the joint was packed. I imagine that once the excitement dies down, and management learns how to staff the place better, this will only improve. The waitresses were standard Hooters fare, attractive-ish, and dressed in their skimpy attire - which I joked was fairly tame for Las Vegas.
I cannot really offer anything one way or the other on this one. When I entered the room, there were two free seats at the max $200 NL table, and the floor management offered me one. I had no interactions with them thereafter.
Hooters does not offer comps at this time, but a plan is in the works.
