    Same thing happened when I booked 3 nights at the Orleans at the end of October. Paid for one night, comped the next two nights. Maybe its a response to try and attract all the business Boyd ran off when they shit in their own sandbox.

    IIAC, there are no rooms on the west side of the building, either facing the atrium or the outside.

    Here's a shot of the west hallway on one of the upper floors, looking north. The windows are on the west side of the building. The atrium is on the outside of the wall on the right. The slanty wall directly ahead is one side of the elevator foyer.

    I must be remembering the view walking down the hall, because I vividly remember Long John Silver's. It's amazing what you do and don't remember in 25 years. When I check in I'll be sure not to try the $20 trick for a west facing room!

    Good Luck!

    That might be it. The Orleans also showed a comp for me for those dates. Suncoast showed regular rates as did MSS/Cal, but I had a mailer for them at discounted rates.
    I'm sure I was just picked randomly since my play wouldn't warrant a comp. They're probably trying to pull some people back in.

    Good Luck!

    I've been getting the same thing for more than a year. Two nights, $10.00 free play and 2-1 buffet.

    Going forward, as long as I get the free nights, I'm staying at Sam's Town.

    Is that 2 free nights but pay the Resort Fees? Sam's gave me an offer last year of 2 free nights but if I wanted to book it I would pay the Resort Fees.

    I'm torn now :haha: I like a quiet room, but I also do like a bit of people watching!

    Thanks everyone!

    I think people watching will be limited. I also noted on my last trip that the folliage has filled out quite a bit. The view is pleasant, but not much for people watching in my opinion

    Good Luck!

    Sit at the Ram's Head Bar in the park and people watch all you want.

    Can't agree more. One of my favorite memories of ST is getting up early, grabbing a paper and coffee, then sitting at the Rock bar (our group's name for the RH's bar) sipping and reading as people walked by.

    Good Luck,

    That is EXACTLY what I used to do. A most civilized way to start the day.

    I remember first seeing the atrium before it was finished. It was a buddies's first Vegas trip so we took half a day to see off strip sites. We stopped by the Showboat and headed south. Drove past the yet to open Boulder Station, the not yet Charlies, Sunrise Suites and on to Sam's Town. I'd never done anything but bowl there, so it was all new to me also. I was suprised at the casino size. The atrium wasn't done so we went up to the mezzanine for a better look. My buddy dubbed the Ram's Head Bar the "Rock Bar" at that point since it looked like a rock with a bar inside. Over the years, our group would always meet at the "Rock Bar" for a cocktail before dinner at Billy Bob's. This would occur at least once every trip. Billy Bob's and the Rock Bar were sacred ground in our group!

    Good Luck!
