Hello there! If you, like me, came to this forum to find some information about a visit to Harrahs and all the details, you probably didn't find much information. So I will provide the info I learned by my own visit to the area for a brief three day stay.
How did I end up in Council Bluffs? I received an offer from CET. For those of you who don't know, CET is Caesars Entertainment, who run both Harrahs and Horseshoe casinos in Council Bluffs. My offer was airfare, accomodations, and free play during the balmy months of January-March. Since I had MLK day off from work, I thought this would be a great time to take advantage of the offer.
I called and made my ressies in late December. Unlike other junkets, I was given $300 per person for airfare. Any excess would have to be paid by me. That was fine. I actually sent a message via Facebook to Harrahs to get in touch with someone there who could help me with more info prior to my trip. I was contacted by the guest relations, who helped me figure out how to maneuver my trip.
Upon a late arrival into Omaha (which I did not realize was just across the river from Iowa), I was expecting to be met by a Harrahs driver. I couldn't find him, but I did find the Harrahs shuttle and its driver, Nathan. Nathan gave us a quickie tour as we made our way through Omaha, across the river and onto Harrahs property.
Checkin was quick and we were placed in a lovely room on the 10th floor. My view at night, looked to be a baseball field, which I later learned was the outdoor concert venue. Beyond, there was a view of the icy river and the Omaha skyline.
