    We made our first trip to AC a few weeks ago, staying at Caesars and really enjoyed it except the losing part. We are thinking to use the Seven Star event to go back but just found out it is Harrahs or Ballys, Caesars is not included.

    So my question is which you you prefer?

    Harrah's without question. Bally's is a complete dive, unless 70's stucco ceilings are your thing. :thumbsdown:

    I booked my event to stay at Ballys. Harrahs is nicer of the two but it's also on the other side of the city and to me inconvenient to stay at.

    So the rooms at Harrahs are nicer? We can always Jitney over to Caesars/Bally if we want.

    Harrah's Waterfront or Bayview are very nice rooms.

    Id say harrahs is overall nicer than both ballys and Caesars (casino and rooms) with the main drawback being the location / not by the beach / only nearby casino is borgata.

    I am 7* so we can use the lounge as you mentioned. I was thinking late June it might be nice to be near the beach and boardwalk. It snowed on our first trip so kind of hard to walk around with all the melting slush.

    I am hoping we get upgraded rooms no matter where we are. We played a lot at Caesars and Ballys but did not get over to Harrahs to see it. We did take the Jitney to Borgata which was dead easy to do. Might consider trying Harrahs and going back and forth over the weekend. Decisions!!

    OK did a little more research and decided on Harrahs. Looks like they have several towers. Marina, Harbour, Bayfront, waterfront.

    What would you specifically ask for? Waterfront facing ?? Bayview facing ?? High floor??

    Thanks,

    Not listed is the Atrium rooms that are more like a suite with a living area and pull out sofa and a larger bedroom.Two tvs.Elevator to these rooms are off the casino floor next to the Diamond Cove high-limit slots area..
    Over the years sometimes my buddy (Diamond) and I (Platinum) ask for and get the Atrium when it's slow.Otherwise it's always the Waterfront (Next to the Pool),
    But none of the rooms have that "ow wow' this is nice like you notice at the Venetian/Palazzo,higher end Rio etc..(My nicest LV experiences).
    Hope this helps..But Harrahs is nice overall..

    I agree with everyone that Harrah's is the better hotel. Bally's is a bit tired.
    What I don't like about Harrah's is that since they have the club at the pool, I find that there are a lot of 20 somethings filling into 1 room on the weekend. I see lots walking through the casino with pillows under their arms. Often there a lot of people in one room, music, screaming etc...well into the night/morning. If you're looking for a quiet room, Harrah's isn't the answer.

    Be specific when you reserve and ask for the Waterfront Tower, higher floors. The Bayview Premium rooms are starting to get worn out, but are still acceptable. AVOID the Marina and Harbor rooms at all costs. They are absolutely disgusting, unless stains and peeling paint are your thing.
