    Was planning a trip to Vegas and was going to stay at a CET property, but with the resort fees that will be applied; I am now considering NY NY because I haven't stayed there before.

    On their web site they mention a Park Ave. room or a Madison Ave. room for $80 more. Is it worth to pay the extra $80?

    Also which towers should I be interested in?

    Are you travelling alone? The Park Avenue is fine if you're by yourself. It's not big, but it's not ridiculously small. If I was with a guest I'd want the additional space you get in a madison avenue room.

    My last stay at NYNY I had a madison and my friend had a park. Other than the size, they were pretty much the same thing. At least as far as two guys travelling alone were concerned.

    Sorry, don't remember the names of the towers. I stayed in the one with the elevator right near Gallagher's, and it was fine.

    Mike, I'll be traveling with family. We'd need two rooms, with two people per room.

    I think you could go either way. If you like the space, there's definitely more in the higher priced room. The Park Avenue room is really your basic hotel room size. I'm not good with square feet, sorry. It's not as big as the basic room you'd get at MGM or Mirage, but it's not super small.

    IIRC the Madison Ave room is the recently remodeled room. The size difference is nominal and not worth the extra cost.

    The only differences in the rooms are the beds and size. The Madison rooms got all the old beds from the Bellagio renovations (we were there last summer when the trucks were unloading 'used' mattresses - of course I asked them details - the above is what I found out).

    As far as size difference, nothing major - bathrooms are identical, just more space between armoire and beds, and a bit more beside the side tables.

    As far as $80 difference - don't pay the extra - just ask nicely at check-in. I really like the high corner rooms - they have windows on three sides, and allow you to look down the strip from Mandalay Bay, to MGM, to PH. Also, if you are high enough, there are only 4 - 8 rooms on the whole floor - cuts down the noise factor (although this floor happened to be smoking?).

    Towers - they all have a zig-zag pattern - no long straight lines - it makes for some good late night walkings. I've been in all the towers, and basically the only difference I found is the access points from the casino - and they are all quite conveniently placed. Look at the map they provide on the website, and go from there. For instance one tower is about 10 steps from the bathroom and 30 steps from my Pai Gow Table - very convenient!!
