This was going to be a Solo trip, but a few weeks before leaving, a college buddy, Ron, decided to tag along. So instead of staying at the M for the first two nights, I ended up giving Ron a coupon for two free nights (run of the house) to Caesars and ended up there. I wasn't really to interested in staying at a CET property again, but this time, I'm glad we did. This could get long, and I'm going to try to include pictures. I will post the full album and a link to a video at the end of the report. Since my wife skipped out the our previous trip, I had a credit on Allegiant air to use up, and got the ok from her to head out again. Allegiant has changed their boarding process to force assigned seat holders to be at the gate 45 minutes early to board first, so I showed up to the airport in Springfield Missouri 1.5 hours before flight time. Not because of security, but only for the check in process. Thirty minutes later, I receive my boarding pass and head outside for a quick smoke. Head to security, no line as usual, and proceed to the gate. The plane boards on time and leaves 10 minutes early. Bad luck hits quickly with a 180 mph head wind. 3 hours and 4 vodkas later, we land in Vegas. Call Ron and he meets me at baggage claim, where the bag appears quickly and off we go. We had planned to go to the Pinball Hall of fame, but decided to head straight to Caesars to check in. Drop our bags at the bell desk and head to check in. When I booked my room, I first sent an email to the "executive booking agent", in other words, my hosts aide. Never heard back from him after 4 days. Called him and got a recording telling me to call so and so. Called her, and her message said I'm out for 3 weeks. So I found the business card my (?) host had sent and called him. He never called back either, so I just booked a room online. Since my wife was not coming, I could only get a classic room comped up front, but figured I'd beg at check in to get a room near Ron. So we get in the Platinum line at check in. There are two conventions starting that day and the check in area must have had 1000 people in line. The agents aren't paying any attention to the platinum line, and neither are the people who were not platinum in the line either. I say to hell with this, and see an employee standing out in front giving out information, and go ask her if we can check in at the diamond check in since "We aren't part of this crowd". She says yes, tell them I sent you and away we go. Walk in and tell the guy whats up, he says no problem. Tell him Ron has a Palace tower room, and I've got a classic room and am wondering if we can get the same tower. He types away and says I've got you in the same tower, one floor apart, Ron will have the room right above you, we are full up, but I think you'll like the rooms since they are suites. Turns out they are in the Centurion tower (by cleopatras barge) I got Room 34-006, Ron got 35-006. I'm thinking, well, at least it's a suite, even if it is 40 years old. We head up to my room and open the door, and holy shit. This room is HUGE. From the foyer, there is a half bath, then a bar with fridge and microwave, living room/dining room, component stereo (with karaoke! ). Off to the bedroom, which faces the strip, flat panel tv along with another stereo. http://i1127.photobucket.com/albums/l630/maulster711/IMG_20110221_165844.jpg In to the bathroom: The shower doubles as a steam sauna, which came in handy the next morning. Ron yells out that he's going to have to come to Vegas with me more often and heads off to his room, which is the same.
