    Good afternoon everyone. Being that I have stayed at Bally's over the years more than any place else and literally lost more money there than any CET property I realized I have no idea what a South Tower Suite is like.

    I have stayed in a North Tower one a few times but was now wondering what's the difference. I gotta think the view would be pretty nice. I currently have a Go room comped for my bday at the end of May at Flamingo but frankly I am not a fan of the Go room. I am comped 2/4 nights at Caesars for an Augustus with the rate being $89 and $99 for Friday and Saturday but I like free better.

    Can anyone give me some details or comparators of the two Bally's suites? I can't really tell much from the pics other than the furniture looks a little dated but I can live with that if I have a nice big room where I can build a fort in or play tag.

    I am Diamond and when we stay there they try to force us into a NT room...we prefer the ST cause it is easy to get a suite and the view of the fountain, Eiffel Tower is pretty good. We've always had a room with new carpet & bedding. Yes the furniture & bathroom is dated but clean. The last suite we had was very near the elevators (heard no noise though)....it was huge! We had about 12 people in to play cards one nite. The room had a pretty large round table that was fine for a hold'em game & some just sat on the 2 sofas and watched TV. We've had NT rooms & suites that were no nicer or bigger with no view at all. Everyone has different preferences but we are very happy in the ST.

    We've had 2 different types os suites in the north tower.

    The first is the Murphy suite, it's two rooms with two full baths with tub/shower combo. One room has the bedroom while the other has a Murphy bed, small dining table, fridge, and couch. Pretty comfy, but definitely dated.

    The second was the celebrity suite which was a true suite. Living room dining area, wet bar, microwave, and a half bath. A room behind the wet bar has a life cycle and stereo to work out. The bedroom has a king bed with a jacuzzi big enough for 2-4 people. You step up into the bath area and you have a steam shower and two dressing areas.

    The celebrity suite is sweet if you can get it.

    Enjoy your stay.

    We use our host to request these rooms.

    $20 would probably do it too.

    I have stayed at Ballys 3 times. I always book the NT.One time I was told they were out of NT rooms and sent me to the ST. The room was very out dated, and dirty. I called the FD and complained and they found me a NT room.

    The walk from the ST to get just about anywhere is a LONG walk. Going to the pool sucks. Don't forget anything in you'r room the walk back sucks. I like the pool...it has a deeper end that you don't find at most pools in Vegas. The walk from ST to the monorail will take you a good 20 minutes.

    If you want a beer,there is a small place by the ST elevators that will sell a single beer for 3.25...also a store not far from the NT sells single beers for cheaper than you can get from the bars. I paid 6.50 for a beer from the bars in Ballys.

    Waiting for a free drink while gambling is annoying...I know it's free but...my usual wait was over 30 minutes.

    The walk to the strip is a long one too.But outside of Ballys is one of my favorite spots to sit and people watch. Lots of performers and people in costumes hang over there. Theres a trailer right there that you can gets drinks from also.

    Just walk out the sports book exit and head across the street to the stage door. You can sit at the bar and get a hot dog and beer for $2.50 or go to their store and buy supplies for much less than the stores at Ballys.
