    Flaming King suite or Bally Jubilee King. Must consider walk to strip. Hate Ballts walk through shops. Escalators never seem to work esp on return walk

    I can't speak for Bally's - but I stayed at Flamingo last week and was pleasantly surprised at the room I got and the view... I'm not even sure what type it was but as a comped room I figured it was their basic room and it was very nice....

    I guess the bigger question would be this - what type of trip are you looking for, a higher energy, party type trip, or a more laid back trip. The casino's have 2 totally different "vibes" - bally's, more laid back in casino and pool area. Yes, things are a little more spread out but easy access to a variety of restaurants, food court in the lower promenade, and shopping/restaurants on the promenade to Paris. Cross the street to the cromwell.

    Flamingo, younger, louder, more high energy vibe. Party pool. good choice of food options. Easy access to stipr/linq/etc.

    I love them both, just depends on the type of experience you are looking for.

    I have stayed at both and while I now consider Bally's my home I still frequent Flamingo. I would say this if you prefer a younger, louder party type crowd and place then the Flamingo is your choice. If you are on a couples trip or prefer more low key 40 and older crowd with nicer rooms then Bally's is your place. Bally's has better access to better food being connected to Paris while Flamingo has direct link to Linq! haha

    Have stayed at both also.....did enjoy the Go Deluxe over NYE but it still was not as comfy as the new Jubilee rooms at Bally's. We like to connection to Paris and access to PH. The escalators were an issue last trip but we just crossed on the surface road going to Cromwell or to Bellagio with no problems....many were doing this. We spend a lot of time in both areas but prefer coming "home" to Bally's.

    First time for us at Bally's. First time at a CET property period. Usually MLifers. For something a little different and to make use of a decent fall offer, we made the leap this trip. Only from a pre-booking room comparison from the experiences of others on this board, the Jubilee rooms at Bally's felt right for us. Slightly concerned about noise from the clubs nearby, but okay enough to commit.
