Overview

Plenty of entertainment on-site, including a casino, a rooftop pool and live performances
Pets are not permitted here

You don't need to go to Las Vegas or Atlantic City to test Lady Luck; Instead, just head about 40 miles northwest of the Mile High City to Ameristar Black Hawk. Guests will find an impressive arsenal of gambling options at Ameristar, from table games to slots and video machines. The fairly spacious rooms (starting at 400 square feet) were well-received by past lodgers, coming equipped with 50-inch flat-screen TVs, sunken oversized bathtubs and complimentary Wi-Fi. However, you most likely won't be spending too much time in your room. When you're not upping the ante, you can spend time lounging by the rooftop pool (a guest favorite) or getting pampered at Ara Spa. And after you've filled your belly at the buffet, plan to attend one of Ameristar's live performances; Bar 8042 also makes a great jumping-off point for a rowdy evening.

Opened in 2009, the upscale hotel Ameristar upped the ante for size and amenities, and nowhere is the opulence more apparent than in the modern but restful Ara Spa, which offers a hot clam shell massage, a variety of tub soaks, and a detox wrap.
