I haven't stayed at Harrah's since the Showboat. I plan on booking (through the calendar) for Thanksgiving (and i have a lot to be thankful for), Nov.20th for 5 nights (all comped). I also have the RIO and Flamingo comped but i didn't like Flamingo last Nov. and the Rio was fine but i'd rather stay on the Strip. My calendar shows the Carnaval rooms comped for Standard or High Roller, or i can get the Mardi Gras room comped. I notice the Mardi Gras rooms have duel plasma TV's. I have no problem with outside noise, it's not a factor. The footage is about the same and the room looks almost the same. I also noticed that the Carnaval SOUTH Tower rooms have been upgraded and look real nice, but you can't book them, calendar or no calendar. Looks like a GO room. Does anyone who has stayed there have a preference? Has anyone stayed in the new South Carnaval South Tower and how to book that room (if it's reasonable)?
