Default Tunica

Which is the nicer hotel to stay in (more comfortable, better food, etc)?

Impossible to answer without knowing one's personal preferences.

Gold Strike--hotel attached to casino. Very short walk to Horseshoe and Sheraton (as if there is any reason to go to Sheraton). Decent restaurants at GS and Sheraton. Very good restaurants at HS. GS rooms are very mediocre IMHO.

Grand--actually has three hotels. One is short walk to casino but not attached. The other two require a car or a ride on the fairly frequent free shuttles Grand provides. No restaurants in any of the hotels. Restaurants in the casino are a cut above GS's but not quite up to HS standards. Rooms at all Grand hotels are superior to those at GS IMHO. However, you do need a car to go to any of the other casinos unless you are willing to endure the aggravation of the low-cost shuttles to the other casinos.

If you're looking for sidegames, the Horseshoe will most likely have the best action.

One more point that may be of interest:

At least two of the Grand hotels (Terrace and Veranda) have free wireless internet access in the lobbies. You may be able to get connected in the rooms but I've heard reports that it is hard to do above the 2nd floor. I am not sure if there is access at the Grand (main) hotel, but it probably is since it is the "high end" hotel.

There is no free wireless at Gold Strike, Horseshoe, or Sheraton. If you need dial-up from these hotels, check in advance to ensure that there is a toll-free access number available.

If you are just talking hotels, the Grand wins by a long shot. The Gold Strike hotel has been going downhill for a couple of years now - the beds are actually sponges, they sink two feet when you sit on them, the wallpaper is peeling in the rooms, elevators are rarely running at 100%,

Horseshoe, right next door, is a pretty nice hotel, and Sheraton very close also, has good rooms.

Side-action will be very good at the Grand too I suspect.

Tunica in Jan is different than Tunica in any other time of year.
All those extra tables for the WSOP-circuit will be attracting a lot of fish.

horseshoe will be good too of course...but I don't think it's an automatic that the side-game action will be better there throughout January (just guessing though...I may be wrong).

I played at the Grand side-game action in August during the smaller WSOP-circuit event they had there and found it to be quite fishy.
I expect it to be even fishier this time around.

Also - if you want the side-game action at Horseshoe you don't HAVE to be staying there.
Gold Strike, Horseshoe and Sheraton are all practically adjacent to each other.

The rooms at Sheraton are quite nice imo (they are all jacuzzi-suites) and it's an extremely easy walk to GS or HS.

The Italian joint at The Grand is pretty darn good (IMHO).

Last year there was tons of action everywhere. I mean there were a lot of games going on in the tourney room when the tables weren't being used.
