Just The Facts, Please.

67,000 square feet
The Spa at Ballys, 13,000 square feet.
One large pool subtle landscaping.
Shopping mall which leads to Monorail.
None really, perhaps the long walkway entrance draped in neon.
Bally's Avenue Shoppes
About 20 stores selling assorted chachkas one level below the casino, which leads to both the Pool and Monorail. The Spa is also located among the stores.
Pool and Spa
Pool plus Tennis Courts:
Located on Mall level, one large pool, with an actual deep end, a rarity for Vegas pools.
The Spa at Ballys is located on the Mall level toward Monorail, and has whirl pools and exercise room. More no-frills than posh.
Poker Room and Sports Book
10 tables, near registration, on the casino floor.
One of the better Sports Books in Vegas, located on the Mall level. Is closed for renovation, and will re-open September 2009.
Bars and Lounges
Live entertainment nightly.
One of the older Strip properties, pre-Mirage, with a great center Strip location. The hotel rooms are large but not posh, like the casino itself. The energy level of the casino seems to be permanently set on medium, neither loud and ruckus like some properties nor somnolent.
Long long walk to the pool, through the lower level mall. Great location center strip. While the furniture has been upgraded the carpets in rooms are a bit worn and need to be updated. Nice having the short indoor walkway connecting to Paris.
The rooms are larger than average, not Venetian large, but large. The North Tower rooms, the nicer of the two towers, have two desks in the rooms. They do nickel and dime you with a $3 a day charge for the in-room safe. The rooms are not posh but nice in an understated utilitarian sort of way.
"Old School" Vegas show, with countless showgirls, elaborate sets, interspersed with variety acts.
The Price is Right - Live
Live recreation of the TV show, that also gives out prizes. More, please.

Asian restaurant, featuring mainly Chinese cuisine.
"Old School" Vegas Steakhouse. More, please.
