    Hey y'all,

    I'll be staying at PH next week for 3 nights/4 days, and I'm my room was comped for the 3 nights.

    I'm wondering if it's worth a try to see if I should upgrade by doing the $20 trick to the resort room, or will they not even accept it since my room is comped?

    BTW, I don't even have to pay for the resort fee since I booked the room about seven months ago, when they weren't charging resort fees. Basically, everything is free--just check in using my ID.

    Any suggestions? I've heard too many negative reviews about the hollywood hip room, and hoping to upgrade to the resort 2 bedroom wz sofa room.

    Would appreciate with any feedback. Thank you y'all!

    The upgrade is doable, I did the $20 trick two trips ago and got upgraded on a comp Hollywood Hip to a Resort Room. With that said, I was not pleased with the room, I was there doing some sports betting and trying to watch games in my room was terrible because of the location of the TV in the Resort Room's armoire. So my most recent trip, a comped Hollywood Hip King, I decided to stick with it as it was college basketball season and would be watching at least a game of two in my room and it was perfect. Smaller bathroom than the Resort was the only difference and a much better TV placement. Both were very clean. For a solo trip I'd take Hollywood Hip over Resort, if I was with someone Resort gets the nod for the big bathroom but that's about it.

    Since your a comped player they may offer you an upgrade if it's not a busy week. I've found you can barter to some degree on the room you want if it's not busy. They may offer the room you want for $25/nt more, but offer them $15/nt and see what happens. CET is broke!

    I got an upgrade to room 2308 - a resort room with floor to ceiling windows looking down the strip in the south spike. I'd take it it over a HH room any day of the week.

    That's why it's called an opinion. I had a Resort Room with floor to ceiling windows facing the Bellagio fountains but a view does nothing for me, especially when I want to watch a game that I have hundreds of dollars riding on but I can only see 70% of the TV because it's in a armoire thats to my dead right with the door obscuring any view of the TV. I would have preferred the armoire right in the middle of the floor to ceiling windows but will face on of the beds so I could watch something that was trying to make me money because a view has never made me money before. Therefore, I will take a Hollywood Hip room with a more intelligent setup any day of the week. The only bonus was the huge bathroom in the Resort Room but if you're solo what do you need all that for?

    I'm sure you checked, but a lot of those armoires place the TV's on a pedestal that pulls out and swivels. Also, with other armoires, the doors slide back into the unit for better viewing. Then again, some just suck.

    Yeah my did not pull out on a swivel and the location of the armoire was so close to the second bed that I could open the door all the way to slide it back into the armoire if that was a feature but it wasn't either. Just terrible, Hollywood Hip two months later was substantially better in layout.

    But that's just my opinion, if you don't bet sports and watch a game or two in the room you might not care about the TV but it is HUGE to me because about 60% or more of my $2500-3000 budget for a trip is bet in the sportsbook.

    I don't know why you are getting defensive? I thought I had been pretty clear that it was my opinion by saying I'd take it rather than you should take it? :confused:

    If you don't want to discuss opinions, can I respectfully suggest that you don't use discussion boards.

    I'm not defensive, I was just replying to you because obviously you targeted my review when you QUOTED what I had said then proceed to say you'd take a Resort over HH. If it was just your opinion and not an attack on my opinion you wouldn't have QUOTED my post. Thanks :peace:

    Dude, get a grip. I didn't 'target' anything. I simply quoted you so that you knew I was replying to you in what civilised people tend to call a conversational style. Please don't take your bad day / mood out on me.

    Glad we sorted that out. You're right about the TV position, it's rubbish. It doesn't bother me as I only turn the TV on in hotels to check it works (don't ask me why), but I did wake up every morning wondering who would put it in such a stupid position.

    Yes it is terrible especially since the room I had, had about 6 feet of dead wall space between 2 floor to ceiling windows which would've been perfect to put the armoire and TV so face on viewing and they could've moved the 2 chairs and table to the right where the armoire was. Whoever laid out that room must've been drunk or stupid and with CET I'll take stupid. :evillaugh

    To be fair, they might have inherited the layout from the Aladdin that they took over. Other CET rooms seem fairly sensible in layout from what I have seen.

    That is true they could've inherited it but to add to that they are their own company so they could've moved it, it's not like it is permanent, after all it's just an armoire and we've all moved at least one in our life time.

    True, the armoire is moveable, but the wiring and aerial tracks would cost a fortune to move around I suspect.
