Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, Biloxi

Beau Rivage slot player's club cardIt was a dark and stormy day...the perfect time to drive over to Mississippi and spend the night at MGM Mirage's Beau Rivage. We haven't been it in since Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005. It reopened last summer on August 29, 2006 -- the one-year anniversary of Katrina.

The hotel is as beautiful as ever and the guest room alone is worth the trip. The public areas are lavish with marble walls, mosaic floors and fresh flowering plants everywhere.

Beau Rivage HotelIt's a world-class resort at prices that wouldn't get you a low class motel room in New York or London. The casino is big and flashy and we were surprised to find it full of people on an off-season Tuesday night. No other hotel/casino on the Gulf Coast can compare to the Beau Rivage. Very few anywhere else can either.
