There is a lot to love about the new Westgate poker room. Start with the fact there are 12 big TVs right in the room, so if you're interested in watching sports, this is the place.
Almost everyone I ran into in my three days in the room was staying at the hotel. Most were in town for a 9-ball pool tournament being held in the hotel. Thus there were very few local grinders which made for a pretty loose cash game.
The staff was extremely friendly and very ready to help. Because the room was closed until 10 a.m. each day, it was often difficult to get cash games going before say 2-3 p.m. The daily 11 a.m. tournament didn't always run and when it did it was usually a single table. That said, the rebuys and add-ons brought the pot to more than $400, so winning was a decent payout for a $40 buy-in tournament.
Cocktail service was extremely quick and came around often, despite the fact most of these waitresses were also working the sports book. When things got busy in the sports book, a quick look to a floor man and he would grab a waitress right away.
Don't expect a lot of games. When I was there they only ran a $1/$2 NL with a $200 buy-in each night. But if you were willing to be patient and play long hours, leaving with $1,000 wasn't out of the question.
This is definitely a great option for those who want a game but don't want to be surrounded by local rounders.
