    Which hotel depends a lot on your expectations....If you want a nice room.....Bally's Jubilee are terrific.../ If you are 20-30 & want a party atmosphere & small room not a big deal....PH. Paris has an older crowd & rooms are worn. When we were there last week....Omnia appeared busy & a little crazy.... Best pool for CET would be either Caesars or Flamingo.... Kind of hard to get everything at just 1 property....

    It would be helpful to know your age and your budget.

    Omnia is very new and very popular, so it will be a madhouse, XS is always busy no matter what, and if theres a big name DJ its absolutely packed. Bottle service will set you back minimum a couple of grand (and thats on a non-headliner night and a shitty table).
    advanced tickets sounds like your best option, although I'm not sure what your budget is

    Lots of kids running around Paris. If you want a party vibe try PH or Flamingo. If you want something more sedate and well maintained I recommend Ballys.

    For higher profile clubs like Omnia and XS I suggest doing pre-sale tickets. They will be busy, but it's sort of to be expected when you have big headliner DJ's spinning. Only time I really wouldn't consider buying pre-sale (and not looking to spend a ton on a table) would be if I had a positive girl to guy ratio.

    If you don't care about seeing big-time DJ's (Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Zedd, etc. of the world) then i'd suggest doing a club crawl. You'll be able to see a few clubs and have a great time mingling with other Vegas partiers before and during the crawl on the buses. I've done both Sin City Club Crawl and Nite Tours and would recommend either from my own personal experience. Sin City Club Crawl (most well-known & popular crawl business) has a promo code on Yelp so it comes out to about $45 a person which I think is a screaming deal when you consider limited lining up at each club, seeing a few Vegas clubs, and getting some free drinks in between your $15-20 drinks you are buying in the club.

    I loved PH! I am in my mid 50's - that might be a warning to find somewhere else....

    I've stayed at all the CET places except Cromwell and Flamingo. My take on the strip based on hotel quality is - Caesars, Cromwell, PH, Paris, Linq, Harrahs, Ballys, Flamingo. The jubilee rooms at Ballys are nice but the casino is usually dead. Harrahs just opened the Carnaval South rooms which look nice too. Can't help on the clubs as I stick to pools, drinking, and gambling. I usually stay at PH as the casino is loud and a bit rowdy without being scummy like Flamingo.
