    Looking for some advice. I don't think things are just black and white, Jubillee vs Indigo towers at Bally's. I haven't stayed at Bally's since they were North and South tower, and Bill's was still across the way (pre-Drais).

    1) My biggest requirement for a hotel room is a good night's sleep, so a room that does not receive a lot of outside noise. I booked a Jubilee Tower Strip View room, as that seemed to be the highest-end comp I could get for the offer. Is it worth it to "downgrade" to Indigo? How about a specific room-type in either tower that would be best for quiet? I assume if I asked for an Indigo tower room facing away from Flamingo that would be the best for me, but I also want to try.....

    2) Email check-in - We're coming in late on a Friday night and I can only imagine the line and after a long day that just sounds horrid. I'm considering doing this and changing the room the next day if it is miserable. I've never asked to change rooms that there wasn't an immediate problem with, but that sounds reasonable, right?

    3) Plus, I have no info about this Blackjack Tournament supposedly at Paris on 8/1-8/2. They haven't sent me anything about it. Anyone going or know anything else about it?

    Thanks!

    If you are just looking for a good nights sleep, then yes, I would go with an Indigo room, especially one facing Koval (Ellis Island and a parking lot is your view). Having stayed in both during one weekend, the Jubilee rooms are definitely upgraded, but the Indigo rooms still were clean and comfy. Biggest advantage of a Jubilee room is a small fridge and a single cup coffee maker, neither of which are in an Indigo room.

    We just stayed in a Jubilee room this past Thurs-Sun. No issues with noise. We were not on the end closest to the strip but we still had a great view of the Eiffel Tower and the Bellagio Fountains. I am guessing the odd number rooms face that way, we were in 7005, closest to the elevators. There was a fridge in the room and it was a good size room. Bed was comfy. I would stay there again. (And we just stayed in a Mirage tower suite the 4 nights before that)

    See My TR. If you can get an Indigo Tower Junior Suite they are every bit as nice as Jubilee tower (just a little older and worn) in terms of size and view (facing North).

    Base Indigo rooms are not bad, better than say some of the Flamingo and Harrahs rooms, but not as nice as Jubilee Tower / Paris Red Rooms.
