We have stumbled across the perfect storm of time off, a Southwest flight deal and availability at the kennel where we board our dog, and are thinking of booking a trip Dec 19-22. (Hey, what better place to be if the world is gonna end on the 21st, right? ) Between SW points and room comps, we can go for $300 total for the two of us. Anyway, I checked Total Rewards and we can get all 3 nights comped at pretty much any of their properties. Caesar's is offering Forum Tower Deluxe King or Roman Tower, the others are all offering their lowest tier and in most cases second to lowest as well. Have stayed at Bally's, Harrahs previously, have not stayed at PH, Paris, Flamingo. Rio is out based on location and IP is not in consideration. Is it a no-brainer to stay at Caesar's? For some background, we've never stayed there before (usually it's the one place we don't get offered comp) so that would be something new. We are not huge fans of the casino, have never quite felt the vibe there. Maybe that would change if we stayed there. Important features are a good variety of machines, good choice of bars at which to play VP while having drinks (this is a big one for us) and some reasonably priced food options on site. We dabble in table games, but nothing hard core. One other option is we have 2 nights free at Mirage with the third night around $49. Not seriously considering that because of resort fees, and why pay anything if we can stay completely free. Loved Mirage room last time, did not like only having one choice to play VP at bar and get drinks comped. So again, is this a no-brainer?
