    Hello :wave:

    I need your opinions on these two rooms please. I need to decide which of these two rooms would be better and why. Considering the room themselves, the furniture, and the bathroom. The two rooms I am considering are the Harrah's "High Roller Premium View King" and the Flaming's "Fab Luxury One King." The price of the two rooms are about $75 difference the Harrah's being a bit more expensive. I don't think that either of the rooms have had their bathrooms redone, just your typical shower/tub combo with shower curtain. The rooms however have been redone within the last 6(?) years at the Harrah's and the Flamingo I think was last year or so. The reason I tend to like the Flamingo is that they have "wood type flooring" which to me is cleaner than carpet. The furniture is also very different from each other. The Flamingo's furniture does not look inviting to sit on but it is probably vinyl whereas the Harrah's does look comfortable with material. But...I have read somewhere I don't remember where, that a person staying in a room at some hotel found dried "man stuff" on the couch! Gross! I guess that would be kinda hard to clean off. Here are the website pages to look at the rooms. http://www.flamingolasvegas.com/hotel.html and http://www.harrahslasvegas.com/hotel.html What do you think and which one would you choose? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance. :thumbsup:

    The Harrahs room with have a small little balcony and is a bit nicer than the FAB rooms. I have stayed in both and bothe were "clean" nothing wrong with them. Although I do like the "wood floor laminate" in the FAB as it means it has to be cleaned.

    If the pool is ANY consideration. Flamingo by a country mile ( ANY COUNTRY for that matter).

    Personally I would go with Flamingo because Harrahs casino just smells too weird for me to stomach. The seem to use a mixture of coconut air freshener and rug cleaner solvents in their casino. The rooms are probably ok but if you plan to gamble where you stay, maybe think Flamingo.

    Ya, the rooms are a toss up but if service matters to you go with Harrahs. The Flaming-O has terrible customer service and the place is in a real need of a deep cleaning. property it's self and the employees!

    I would try to stay at Paris. If not, i would do Flamingo and use the $20 trick to upgrade to the GO room.

    I like flamingo a lot better. It's all depends on what preference you want. $20 upgrade tick will deff work to get to a go room as the previous poster said.

    If you do flamingo, be sure to find the blackjack pit which has 3:2, most are 6:5. Only 1 pit is 3:2, kind of in the middle of the casino next to the cage. Sadly all the other ones are now 6:5

    Paris is your best bet than
    Although book in advance as paris is populair and has a lot of conventions going on so even if wanted to stay three weeks in paris this time it was already impossible( booked ballys by my host 2 months ago)
    Stayed last two times in calais suite which was really nice( no suite for me this time though as i gambled too little last time i was in vegas)

    Thanks again for everyone's input. :) I drive my wife nuts because I keep changing hotels, but I do have a room at the Paris and one at the Bally's on hold for now. For both the Paris and Bally's I only could use their 20% off for February special that they have along with my players card which doesn't have any play on it. (Haven't been to Vegas for three years now.) But then I looked at Priceline.com and found a better rate and spoke to Paris and they matched it! So instead of $182/night I got $147.20/night for a "Red Room Luxury" and I was so happy! I used her players card to book a room at Bally's in a "Jubilee Premium 2 Queen Beds" and am looking at another hotel search engine. But I will have to wait until tomorrow as they (Bally's) are closed right now.

    Which brings me to a question that I thought that I would put to the boards. :) I was wondering if the Jubilee Premium rooms which face the strip are quiet? I read a review that said that Drai's is on one side and La Chateau on the other and if you are in the Jubilee tower to forget about sleeping. Is this true? I will be there during the week from the 16-19 of February and didn't think that it would be to noisy, what is your folks opinion? Thank you all again:peace:

    This is not an exaggeration. In my opinion, the Flamingo pool is the best on the strip! !

    I just read that you're going in February. Please note, the pools won't be open. If that's the case, I would go with the cheapest between the two hotels. They're both center strip, and both low end.
    The only thing that sets the Flamingo apart is the pool, which isn't available in February.
