Today all the comped dates are in the North Tower. I tried dates in August, September, December and January. Guess the new Jubilee
Tower is now the 'nicer' Bally's
That is the reason why i made the original post on the "Comp" board. I have been booked at Bally's
since Feb. for a Nov. stay. I was booked for a south tower room which has been the normal procedure for over 10 years (since my first stay at Bally's). They now changed me to North Tower classic. The North Tower WAS the room that many people upgraded to. Now, it's reversed.
Tower goes for $89-$99 for the basic room. That is more expensive that the Paris
Red rooms, more expensive than the PH
Hip rooms, way more than Harrah's
and more than Flamingo's Go Strip view rooms.
The rate calender has never given me comps at Paris/PH, (except for 1 or 2 days, i always book 5 days) where i usually play at, yet Caesars,
where i'm staying in August, is comped, even though i hardly ever gamble at Caesars.
I am talking about Sun-Fri as far as comps.
I have no problem "upgrading" to the Jubilee
with the $andwich, however, it's unclear to me when i go in Nov., if all the rooms (about 750) will be completed? As far as i can tell, by looking at pics here and across the web, the Jubilee
rooms don't look like $100 rooms. The reason why i always stay at the South Tower is because of the location and the ease of going in/out (when the escalators work). Most people in here always preferred the North Tower, now most everyone likes the South because they changed the decor better than Paris, PH,
South Tower, unless i missed it, is still in the same location since the MGM days.
