Choctaw Grant

So we made it on a trip to Oklahoma Sunday as part of our 4th wedding anniversary celebration.  But, we went to Choctaw Casino Resort in Grant, Oklahoma.  That was not the original planned destination.  We were excited to go to Durant but hotel accommodation rates are way too high!  Imagine the hotel room rate is $295 a night.  Despite of our eagerness to be there, there was no way we will be availing that price.  That was more than triple of the price we usually pay for one night.

Well, we found out that there is a tournament going on the whole two weeks there-The World Series of Poker Tournament.  That makes sense.  Players from other parts of the world come to the event.  Of course, lots of spectators too.

Though resort we’ve been is a chain of the one we used to visit, the area is small.  There’s an outdoor heated pool and tub, which is not very convenient because the pool is located by the parking area.  No wall whatsoever.  Apartment pools are quite better because they’re inside the premises.  Anyway, we played for a few hours while my MIL was babysitting our little one.

The hotel room looked very nice though.  I liked the furniture and the bathroom.  There’s a spacious closet where my baby girl enjoyed playing with the sliding mirror.  She thought it was an elevator door. There is no wi-fi Internet but the hotel provides LAN cable free of charge.  Not much of food selection in the buffet restaurant but the food was good.

We were kinda guilty though because there was no other entertainment for kids besides the swimming pool, and we were not able to swim for the reason that it was breezy and cool Monday morning.  We only stayed overnight in the hotel.  So my baby girl did not get any recreation.  On our future travels, we will go to places that have amusement areas for kids.
