Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi: A Review
The mighty, yet majestic, Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi is heralded as one of the greatest hotels in the state, as well as the tallest.
The Beau is a property of MGM Resorts, the #1 name in gaming resorts around the world. Biloxi has been fortunate to have this luxury hotel and casino in their city since 1999.
Weathering the brunt of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Beau helped protect smaller properties around it but had major damage as a result. Rebuilt and better than ever, a stay at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino is nothing short of spectacular.
Checking In at the Beau
On my visit to the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, I was lucky to be using the VIP check-in desk. The entire process only took maybe two minutes, start to finish. After being given a key to my room, a property map, and directions to the elevators, I was offered snacks and drinks before being shown up to my room.
Relaxing in my Beau Rivage Room
Once I entered my room, I knew that I was in for a delightful stay as I enjoyed Biloxi and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. In warm tones of gold and maroon, gorgeous fabrics decorated the huge room, with a floor to ceiling picture window overlooking the Beau’s beautiful swimming pool and hot tub.
My 400 square feet deluxe oceanview room had two queen beds with comfy mattresses, a great selection of pillows, and a sitting area with two chairs. The room also had a desk, refrigerator, flatscreen TV, and plenty of plug-ins for my tech gear. As I explored my room further, I found an enormous marble bathroom with a huge soaking tub, separate glass shower, and vanity big enough to hold all of my stuff. Yep, these digs were getting major thumbs up.
A Much Active Casino Offering
As I wandered into the casino, I took in all of the action on the floor. The Beau Rivage Resort & Casino is decorated in a classic, elegant fashion, that to me shouted, “Welcome to the True South“. Florals, checks, stripes, and rich fabrics with wrought iron warmed the atmosphere and the dinging of winning bells made me happy just to be there. The chandelier lined walkways didn’t hurt either.
The gaming selection at the Beau consists of table games (Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps and Roulette) as well as 1,800 slot machines, my favorite! There were more high dollar slots in this casino than anywhere I’ve ever seen in the world!
Keep in mind that as long as you are spending money in the machines and/or at the tables, drinks are free. Order call liquor; this is your chance.
Decadent Dining and Other Amenities at the Beau
Foodies will love visiting and dining at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino. Two of the top restaurants in Mississippi are on the premises, B.R. Print (Steakhouse) and Jia (Asian cuisine). Other choices include the Italian favorite Stalla, Terrace Cafe (off the lobby), Pool Bar & Cafe, Coast Seafood & Brew, and of course, a big fantastic casino buffet simply called “The Buffet”.
The Beau Rivage Resort & Casino doesn’t stop with a major gaming complex and noteworthy hotel rooms. It also has a high-end spa, salon, workout facility offering state-of-the-art equipment, and two nightclubs.
Check out the concert schedule (here) with top name acts playing year round. Alanis Morrisette, Billy Idol, and LeeAnn Rimes are coming soon. The Beau is pet-friendly, so bring Fido with you.
If shopping is one of your hobbies, you are in for a real treat. The amazing selection of stores at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino is to be commended. Stop in the gourmet coffee roaster, appropriately named Roasted Bean, and have a Tuna Salad Sandwich and your favorite coffee fixation. Yum! Satisfy your sweet tooth with a cone from Haagen Dazs.
The Beau Rivage Delivers A Memorable Experience
I cannot stress enough how pleased I was to stay at the lovely Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. I didn’t even have to go outside the doors to enjoy four days of fantastic fun, delicious food, and a relaxing stay. It was incredible to enjoy the sensational garden displays and sweet smells coming from the floral arrangments no matter where I went in the resort. Well done to the staff and gardeners of the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino for being the epitome of a gracious Southern host and welcome home-away-from-home.
