I'll have to admit I never heard of the guy, but a quick google search indicates he is a legend in the gaming business, though not a mogul like Steve Wynn. The link has an interview with Rubin, and includes his resume. There is a Discovery Channel "documentary" on the casino business that goes into how high rollers get free rooms, etc.

The Station House has a few things in its favor. The kitchen is open 24 and 7. It has a small arcade with pinball. There is live (well half live) entertainment in the bar. You get a comp for a free beer with your room. They have a nice slot machine museum in the basement.

The Station House has three rates: pleasure, business, and goverment, with government being the cheapest. Hint hint they don't check references. If I'm there snooping on the government, well, it's my BUSINESS. I showed up there one time at some bizare hour and must of looked like hell because the desk clerk decided to give me the government rate, probably out of pity.
