    I can get all rooms comped, can't decide. It's been awhile since we stayed at Caesars. Any suggestions?

    We also get comped room at those hotels but have never wanted to stay at Caesars....just too big & hard to get around & to the strip. Paris had been our fav for many years due to the size - easy to get to the room & strip. But, after staying in the new Jubilee rooms at Bally's....we will stick with those until something changes. Love the room....food options there or nearby.....everything mid strip being so close makes it any easy decision for us... Good luck!

    Wow, with all those higher end rooms to choose from, the Jubilee rooms at Ballys must have really impressed you. I now may have to rethink my next trip in July at Caesars. I was thinking of again trying for the Augustus/Octavius upgrade but I may venture across the street to Bally's.

    Sam....we thought the rooms were very well done. Impressed by the new comfy mattresses & higher quality linens. Love the huge walk-in showers too.

    Good Point. I can get from my room at Paris (last October) to the sportsbook at Ballys quicker than I could get from My sisters room in the Augusts tower to the corner of Flamingo and Las vegas blvd. Unless you are just gonna play at Ceasars and just stay in your room and not venture outside to other casinos, then Ceasars is hard pressed to compete with either Ballys or Paris. There was a time that the name "CEASARS" meant all that plus a bag of chips. Now it just means nice room in a nice hotel with the most expensive buffet 7 days a week on the strip and a beautiful spa (The Qua is nice). Clearly I'm really generalizing but you get the point!

    Thanks I think I'll stick with Ballys due to the area being so easy to get around. Paris Shower is so small compared to Ballys.

    I quite often select a COMP Bally's Jubilee room over an Augustus Tower room. I tried the Augustus Tower once and while I enjoyed the experience I was just really tired of the long walk to the strip. I think CP is great if you enjoy the Casino and spend a good amount of time on the property. I do not so it doesn't work for me.

    Yes getting out of Caesars is a pain, Paris/Ballys so easy. I am fortunate to get a Jubilee Junior Suite at Ballys in April, going with a gal Friend. My Hubby and I are going end of August and that room at Caesars came up at Palace Tower, but I'm sticking with Ballys Jubilee Comped Room.

    Palace Tower at Caesars is going to be the largest room with most amenities (Jacuzzi tub, nice marble shower, TV in bathroom, mini bar, etc), its also going to have the longest walk to the Casino of all the properities.
    Caesars also has the great Qua Spa and incredible pool complex if your staying during warmer months.

    Paris Red Rooms are okay, the houndstooth carpet and chocolate brown / red accents look nice, and depending on the room assignment have incredible views of Bellagio Fountains and Eiffel tower. So if view is most important to you
    definitely try to get a Premium Red Room with Strip View. Room size is going to be average in the 350 to 400 sq feet. There are some P rooms at the end of halls with double windows and slightly larger footprint.

    If view or things like Jacuzzi tub are not all that important to you, then I think the Indigo Jr. Suite at Ballys is a great room and easy comp for Diamond players. The room is huge with Bed and TV, sitting area with large windows, table area, separate dressing area, and separate bath. The ones facing North have pretty good views of North Strip, high roller, Caesars Palace. Also its a short walk to the casino. Jubilee rooms are nice with the remodel and short walk to strip / casino. Views are okay (south strip and half Bellagio fountains, Eiffel Tower) but I thought furnishing were a little cheap looking and the elevators painfully slow on some busy days. Still pretty nice. Here's how I would rank them IMHO.

    1) Palace Tower Room - Caesars
    2) Indigo Tower Jr Suite - Ballys
    3) Paris Red Room Premium with Strip View - Paris
    4) Jubilee Tower King - Ballys (If you can get the Jubilee Tower Suite with the Jacuzzi tub, then I would rank it slightly higher than Palace Tower room)
