    We stayed a number of years ago at Bally's and it was ok, however now that the North Tower has been renovated and we can get five nights comped in the Luxury Jubilee Room, and five nights comped at Paris where we always stay, not sure what to do now. I haven't been able to get upgraded to a Red Room last two stays. We like the pool, but sun doesn't hit it till late morning. Any advice? We do gamble a lot at Sully's Bar, but also like Paris a lot. Need help.....can't make decision.. Also renting a car is Bally's valet hard to get into..

    I may take a little heat over this, but I would rather stay in a Jubilee Luxury room than the basic Paris room. Now if it were a guaranteed Red Room, I'd say Paris for sure. But if you're getting the best Bally's room vs. (potentially) the worst Paris room, I'd actually go with Bally's. I can't speak to the valet experience, admittedly.

    We have made Bally's & Paris our home for many years and love them both. Always get a Red Room at Paris....sometimes a small suite. In March, we got a Jubilee Room for the 1st time (thought that was the South Tower) and we LOVED it. It is larger than the rooms at Paris....the bathroom is sooooo nice. It is a little easier to get to the room at Paris though. Think we will stick with Bally's for future trips until they remodel some more Paris rooms.... :)

    I think the Jubilee rooms right now are right up there with the best bang for the buck on the strip! Stay at Ballys and play wherever!

    No heat here, you are 100% correct with your assessment!

    I wouldn't stress too much about it.
    The way Ballys and Paris is configured it is essentially like one large hotel/casino.
    Not having stayed there I can't comment on the rooms, but if you are like me and have plenty to drink at night it really won't matter what the room looks like as long as the bed is soft. :thumbsup:

    Newly renovated Jubilee Rooms are in the SOUTH Tower. Ask for high room, close to elevator AWAY from Paris nightclub. North tower is now called Indigo Tower. Pool is decent at Ballys with a deep end...12' I think.

    The best answer that I've seen in awhile! Staying at Ballys 3/19-24 comped because the wife loves Ballys and for the reasons that Bound and Iamrice have outlined. "One large hotel" That says it all! Nothing but "S"'s........Soft bed, Shower that works/drains (and fits someone at least 6 ft tall), safe environment and some sleep! Other "S"'s you can fill in at your leisure!

    Ms. Capt. loves, loves, loves Bally's, so that makes the decision a no brainer for me! I like it as well. I have been thinking of giving TI some play this trip to maybe give it a try, but Ms. Capt. says we are staying put.

    Yup...wife and I recently stayed at Bally's (Jubilee Premier) for the first time and we LOVED IT! Elevator drops you right out nearly on the strip, also connects right to Paris, with a little 100' walk outside, you're into PHo...just works perfectly.

    This is my first time staying at Ballys... Hunter set me up in a Jubliee 1 King room.... is it worth asking for the $20 upgrade fee...
    I cant find what the next upgrade would be besides a suite on the Ballys webpage...

    We are staying in the same room. This is our first time trying the Jubilee, but I don't think an upgrade would be beneficial unless you went all the way to a full suite and I don't think a $20 on SB weekend would score that. We used to stay in the North tower on the Diamond floors I think they were called, they were referred to as mini suites. They were big but a bit dated. Ms. Capt. loved that they had a separate vanity.

    Yeah I figured the $20 trick is worthless... I am not taking anyone now so its turning out I can get more fb comped on the backend ;) I stayed in one of those nice panaroma suites at PH last time, and it was badass....but it ate up all my comps and gave me very little backend comps for fb... luckily for me i usually eat stuff like Burgr etc etc... earl of sandwich

    Yeah, I don't sweat the room much. I agree the money or credit is better spent elsewhere. We usually eat one nice meal per trip and the rest of the time its Ellis Island, Chipotle, or Earl like you said. We are not foodies so we don't get into that whole scene. I will spend far more time tracking down the perfect craft beer than worrying about a steak.

    On good source, a Jubilee King is worth $60 a night in comps, so if you're staying three nights, that's gonna eat up $180 in backend comps (just realize you need $550 in theo to cover just the room)
    ADT x .33 = backend comps.

    We've stayed at Paris/Bally's a few times. We like the Bally's rooms due to their old school vibe. Plus Bally's casino is small and easy to navigate for my wife. We spend more time at Paris casino and restaurants.

    I don't think there's a wrong choice between the two.

    Bally's valet is not hard to access from Flamingo. It's a bit difficult to get in from the strip due to the pedestrian traffic. Just head to Flamingo and turn in there. No problems.

    Thanks Everyone..we have decided since I can't be guaranteed a Red Room, we are staying at Bally's in a Jubilee Luxury Queen Room. I understand that's the South Tower. Does anyone know if the sun hits the pool early versus Paris late morning? I just got tired of the 20.00 trick for room upgrade at Paris. It hadn't worked the last two times, but got a corner Room once, and a room facing the Tower. I did email a host to see if he can guarantee me the Red Room, but think I'll stick with Bally's.
