    I just tried to book a room through Caesars Entertainment and to get a room with 2 beds is about $25 more a night throughout the chain. When i looked out of curiosity at Expedia (after smartervegas and all those sites) the booking was the same price for 2 queens as it was for a king. Meaning a savings of $100 over the booking. This was with some Expedia 20% off rate that appeared when booking making it match any rate that smartervegas had.

    So I called to book with Ballys and asked them to honor the rate online. To do so I have to book the higher rate, take a screen shot and then submit a request to match it and beat it by 10%. I asked why they were going to make me jump through hoops to get the matching rate. I dont care about beating it, just honor the cheaper rate. They cant any other way she said. She said its usually cheaper to book two queens on 3rd party sites than it is to book on their site and I am not the first frustrated person but she could do no more.

    I am not going to jump through hoops, fill out forms and such to save 10% so I simply booked with Expedia (a fully refundable rate) and the hotel can eat the 20% commission Expedia takes.

    Makes ZERO sense to me whatsoever but for those low rollers who dont get more than 15%-20% off rates with Caesars, its a good tip to get that second bed for the price of a king!

    I was looking at rates yesterday and noticed the exact same thing. The only word of caution is that if you book with expedia(or any other 3rd party site) and you play to a level that a host can comp a room or give you a reduced rate they are not able to if you booked through a 3rd party.

    FWIW, I think every Vegas property I've stayed at, regardless of my reservation, I've always been asked "one bed or two?" at check in.

    Also they dont guarantee the room you booked through 3rd party sites.

    i have booked a king many times and been told when i get there they have one 2 queens or the other way around.

    Its basically just buys you a slot and they put you where they want.

    Look at other cities. i was looking at hotels around the Grand Canyon and very few had more then one bed. you could get a queen or a king, not 2 queens or a king like vegas.

    Of course if you want to prevent having to jump through hoops when booking a room, cet is in bankruptcy so maybe you can buy your own hotel and then you wont need to sweat it. you will have a great room on the top floor.

    Last 2 times I stayed at CET properties in Vegas I had wanted kings and they gave me 2 queens, they were comps so if they charge more for the 2 queens they were giving me an upgrade. LOL
