Did you try to go to any pools at the other Harrah Properties and if so have any trouble getting in? I was told guests can go to any pool at any Harrah property.
Harrah's was actually really good for location in terms of not having a car and wanting to get around to multiple places for poker. They have that free shuttle that runs every half-hour until 1am to/from the Rio, so that's a huge plus! I walked over to play at the Venetian a couple of times. I played in the Harrah's room a couple times too, it's pretty soft in there.
In the summer heat, though, you probably would not like walking to the MGM poker room or even the Aria. You could get to the Wynn easily enough if you made a pit stop in the Venetian and walk through it or the Palazzo.
The pool actually looks pretty nice for layout, size, seating at Harrah's. I didn't go down there but saw it from both my balcony and from the gym a couple times. I didn't attempt to visit any other Harrah's property pool so cannot comment on that.
hope that helps,
