Looking at a solo trip in early december for 5 nights. The better half doesn't like to stay downtown but I prefer dt & this would be a golden opportunity to stay there. I really like to gamble & eat at these 2 properties but can't decide on which one is best for me. Have never stayed at either. For the nights in question, cal is $220 & mss is $280. Is the mss really worth $60 more as they are connected to each other? Room size is not important to me as it is a solo trip. A clean & quiet room is important. Also, I like to visit the sportsbook on football gamedays. I know the cal's book is tiny as I have placed bets there before. Does anyone know if I will be able to get a seat in there on gamedays? The shuttle to sam's town may be an option as well. It appears that sam's has a nice sized book judging from the pics I have seen online. Has anyone ever visited sam's book on gamedays? I realize this is a lot of questions. Thank you in advance.
