    Can get 4 nights comped at Paris, PH, or a GO room at Flamingo. I know each have their benefits, but which would you recommend booking? Thanks

    Well, what kind of experience are you looking for?

    Without knowing anything about you, I'd recommend PH out of those three. But that could change depending on your tastes.

    My choice would be PHO. Right in the middle of the strip and Earl of Sandwich
    for when you just can't drink no more.

    Yes - depends on what you are looking for. PH is "younger". My preference of the three is a Go Room, but I'm a middle aged woman!

    I think this one is quite easy depending on one variable: Will it be pool weather. If it is pool weather then I think Flamingo wins in a landslide. If it is not pool weather I think PH wins in a landslide due to the better of the three casinos and the atmosphere.

    Rooms are all a wash assuming you are getting a standard room at each. I am not a fan of the Paris casino and usually only find myself in there because I'm at the Diamond Lounge or I'm walking to PH or Cosmo. I find Paris to be pretty bland although there is really nothing tangible beyond my own tastes to make that statement.

    I prefer food choices at PH compared to others. Location is pretty much the same although I usually gamble in the Cosmo-Bellagio-Ballys triangle so I would prefer PH by just a bit.

    Pools at Paris and PH are brutal for resorts of their size.

    Let the other opinions commence.

    Pretty much agree with Gaggles.

    I think Paris is rather boring, Casino is often pretty dead feeling. I just dont get the vibe at all.

    PH is my favorite overall CET property, but I go with Flamingo because of the pool if its summertime. PH has been really tight on rooms the last year for me. If you going in the winter I would jump all over PH.

    Flamingo is my spot in the summer, but in the summer we dont leave poolside all day, so the pool is paramount.

    Another advantage to consider is where you will be hanging out, if you are a south strip person, PH makes it east to trek south, vice versa for Flamingo.

    I dont think you can go wrong with either PH or Flamingo! PH will have a younger vibe, but Flamingo still rocks pretty good as far as the party scene goes.

    I would stay at the Ho for the rooms and Vibe. And having the Hotels next to one another you can dine at Mon Gabi for a sunset dinner overlooking the Bellagio fountains. I spend most of my weeks time at Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood.........a block of Heaven.

    I've stayed at Paris and PH before. We are going to stay at Go Mini Suite at Flamingo for our upcoming trip.

    Paris:
    We stayed at the Blue room (not sure if it's a standard room or not). It has 2 Queen beds, view facing Cosmopolitan. It has separate jet tub and shower. The room was nice however I didn't care for the casino vibe. It was pretty quiet.
    It's a great location to walk to Cosmo, Bellagio, and center area.

    PH:
    We got the upgraded room ($20 tip) facing the Bellagio fountain & Sammy Davis Jr room. It has 2 queen beds. The bathroom was awesome. Jacuzzi tub, shower, and separate toilet room. The casino was really fun. It has the Deal or No Deal slot machine that I like. Miracle Mile shop is right underneath and great food choices for a mall. The only thing is the room is kinda dark because it only has one window.

    Between those two I will stay at PH again for the right price. Hopefully Flamingo will be a decent hotel for us for our next month trip.

    I would recommend PH. It has a good central location and a younger vibe. The casino itself is upbeat, usually with music playing and the pleasure pit. Also, the $20 trick works well.

    They all have their ups and downs. But I'd pick Paris. The rooms are slightly older than PH, but PH is just too difficult to deal with.

    Planet Hollywood for sure. Nice big rooms with a giant soaking tub. Paris rooms are wholly unremarkable and I'd avoid the Flamingo this year with the construction to its north and south with the Linq and Bill's.

    I love the Paris Hotel because.....

    The Paris Hotel meets my needs which means it is a short walk to the elevators. The rooms have a refrigerator and a coffee pot. The room was quiet and peaceful with a nice view. I didn't have any problems when I stayed there in my room in Dec....last month.
    I booked it again because I liked it so much.

    The local bus stops right in front of the Paris Hotel which is great for me.

    I am a senior lady that goes to Vegas by myself quiet often. I am now booked almost every other month.lol. I love Vegas.

    Hi Heather from Woodland Hills. I live in Glendale and I take the plane from Burbank airport to Vegas. Do you drive or fly to Vegas? Lucy

    I love Paris. As noted above I would avoid Flamingo with all the construction.

    I have stayed in a Red Room at Paris, a resort room at PH, and visit Flamingo every trip. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with any of the three.

    I believe the Paris Red Rooms are a little less worn than PH rooms, but I can't speak for the Blue Rooms.

    PH has Earl of Sandwich, but the buffet at Paris and the Burger place in the walkway to Bally's are great also. I actually like the Flamingo Buffet for Breakfast since it has a nice view of the gardens and I also like the Johnny Rockets at Flamingo.

    The vibe is nice at PH....Club type music at night, and they mix in some classic rock during the day. The vibe at Paris is a little more mellow, but I wouldn't call it boring. The vibe at Flamingo is just plain fun.

    Like I said before, I dont believe you can go wrong.

    I just came back from a 7 day trip split between PH and a Flamingo Go Room. I stayed in Paris a few years ago.

    Since all three are comped, I would go with Planet Hollywood. The standard rooms are very nice, the staff very courteous and it's nice having the Miracle Mile shops so close (with Walgreens a short walk). I enjoyed the Spice Market buffet, Earl of Sandwich and the new Ramsay Burgr Bar. I do find the casino very confusing.

    The Flamingo was nice as well but I found the construction next door detracted from my enjoyment of being at that part of the strip. It will only get worse with the upcoming Bill's construction project. I didn't hear any construction noise but I could hear the bass from a nearby nighclub (may have been PURE). I was facing the center of CP. If you do go, avoid the lobby elevators and use the habitat ones, they are much faster.

    Really, all three are good options and you can't go wrong with any of them.

    That is all sound advice. I am glad I am not the only one that still finds the Casino of PH confusing!! It was the first property I stayed at in LV and I frequent it every trip and still get turned around.

    It is the bass from Pure nightclub at Caesars that you can hear at the Flamingo. I also request a room overlooking the habitat area so I can avoid that noise and also because the elevators are so much easier to get up and down with. I have always been given a nice room as most request strip view obviously.

    If your going during pool season then I say the Flamingo. But, if the pool doesn't matter then I would say PHo!!

    Paris is boring

    I agree that Paris is very boring - plus a lot of families stay there. Flamingo is always a good time if you have a GO room or better!

    I faced this exact same choice for this upcaming trip and had to decide between, Go room, hollywood hip, and paris red room. Here is how I made my decision:
    Flamingo might be my favorite casino right now it hust has a good laid back in a " we're all here on vacation and we want to have some drinks and gamble" kind of way. No one is taking emything to seriously. The downside is the construction and concerns about cleanliness in the common areas.
    Planet Hollywood. The rooms look nice and they receive generally good reviews. The food selection is probably the best in that it lines up with my likes a little better than Paris. However, and this is probably silly but.... I absolutely refuse to start another Vegas Vacation by arriving at that mess that they call an entrance. The only thing that couls save that entrance is to throw som moss on the walls, make you drive though a wall of water and say that it is the set for the entrance to the Bat Cave.
    Paris. Blue Rooms are terrible, however red rooms are supposed to be better and I am putting a lot of faith in that. The location is great and it will allow me to visit Flamingo and PHo easily as well as pop over to Cosmo .
    That is my 2 cents
