    I have stayed at Wynn Tower and CP Palace Tower but not Augustus.

    Considering spending a couple nights of my October trip in one of these properties.
    Not a huge fan of CP but everything I have read about Augustus Tower is positive.

    Looks like the price is close for either property if I decide to pay and not call casino services.
    Any recent experience?

    Stayed in both multiple times. It is hard to find a room that beats the Wynn rooms. Also I like that when I get to the bottom of the elevator at the Wynn I am right in the action. I have fond memories of CP as it is my parents favorite casino so I have stayed there a ton, but as I experienced other resorts I got really sick of the walk from Augustus tower.

    I have stayed in Augustus and Palace tower rooms and they are very similar with minor differences just in different towers. I would go with Wynn.

    Great rooms either way. My choice would NOT be because of the room though. It would be the casino that I would be spending more time in, drinks, food, playing.

    Wynn all the way. Are you going to be in the room 24/7? Wynn has it all. You don't care for CP anyway..

    Thanks for all the responses.

    Kind of what I thought but had recently read some positives about Augustus so though I would ask.

    LOVE Augustus tower rooms! Those and Palazzo are my favorite standard rooms. Wynn is VERY nice though. However the Bellagio fountain views are simply fab from Augustus tower.

    I'd pick based on the location I wanted to be in.

    if you are paying and the price is the same I would stay at Wynn. I only stay at CP because it is free and I get FP and gifts.

    The fountain view from Augustus is one of the main reasons I like CP. I love standing at the window, with a drink and a cigarette, watching the fountains dance. I find it very relaxing, particularly after a long haul at the tables.

    Having recently stayed in the Augustus towers, my memory is clear of how very nice it was. My only stay at the Wynn property was at Encore several years ago and that stay is still clear! If the Wynn tower rooms are the same as the Encore rooms, I'd go with Wynn.

    I have never stayed at the Wynn so I can't compare however we had friends at the Wynn who came to see our room in the Augustus tower and liked it and the casino so much that they have now switched to Caesars for their 2 or 3 times a year trips.
