    I am staying at Bally's or Flamingo in October.
    In your opinion, which room is nicer/better, Bally's Resort or Jubilee, or Flamingo Executive Go room?
    Strip views would be nice to have.
    Thank you
    Wizard

    Resort rooms were more recently renovated, so they are likely to be in better shape. Jubilee rooms are a little older, but have strip views.

    The design is the same and room size close.

    So pick your poison. Jubilee will have strip views, and is a shorter walk to the strip.

    Resort is something like 2-3 years more recently done, and more likely to be quiet.

    Personally I'd go with resort. I do nothing with a strip view but one quick peek out the window, and that isnt worth the extra noise.

    I like the resort tower, seems quieter and you can access the mall/food court area directly.

    In base rooms my personal preference would be resort tower because like others said, they're newer remodel and quieter, plus they're as or more convenient access than jubilee to almost everything but the strip and poker areas. When you step up to suites, the Jubilee tower studio and executive suites are larger then their resort tower counterparts, and for the suites with giant tubs, they took out all the whirlpool jets in resort tower in the recent renovation but Jubilee tower still has them in the executive suites and above. All that said, only Jubilee tower has any rooms with a functional strip / fountain view, but it's just a small subset of that tower that even has that. Some of the south facing rooms are obstructed by Paris, and the north facing ones are just sort of staring at the walls of cromwell/Flamingo unless you get real high or on the west corner.

    Thanks for this. I'm switching my reservation to the Jubilee exec suite now. Wonder which genius made the decision to put a jet-less tub in the center of the room?

    We stay at Bally's a lot and we always stay at the Jubilee tower. The views are good and you get an excellent view of Paris and the Eiffel tower. Try to stay on a high floor if you can because the music from the Paris nightclub can be heard in your room. The Resort tower is quieter and there are some rooms that offer a cool view of the entrance to Bally's and up Flamingo Road.

    Seems to be the way Vegas is going, but it was a huge disappointment when I paid for the Presidential Suite at Ballys, which still advertised having a whirlpool tub at the time, and it was just a 3 foot deep cistern lol. On the other hand, at least they didnt remove the tubs entirely. But yah, for me the whole appeal is it's basically an indoor hot tub in the middle of the room, which to me is mostly ruined when you take away the bubbly, but still better than say, Bellagio where they're currently ripping out decent bathtubs and replacing them with larger showers with half a door....errr that is, half a wall and no door I mean

    @MCann ...are you talking about the recent/last few years room renovations in the Resort Tower as being when they removed the jets? Or something more recent I missed?

    We've stayed in the Resort Executive and Resort Premium suites after the renos a few years ago, and in the Resort Premium in February 2020 right before Covid. Both tubs were still jetted.

    Maybe I have bad info but all the Presidential suites in resort had them prior to the 2018 renovation, and when I stayed there they were advertised, but didnt have em. I mentioned it to desk staff and they said only in jubilee tower, someone else also told me that on VMB. I've only seen the presidential and executives in resort, all in 2019 and they all still had the tubs but none of them had jets any more.

    Edit- I think the premium may be the exception but the Presidential was also listed as an exception but didnt have them when I stayed there on thanksgiving 2019.

    If you want a great view, you want the Jubilee Tower looking south. Higher the floor the better. Simple as that. The Resort Tower is set so far back on the property that the views don't compare.

    Bally's Jubilee tower has the advantage of better Strip views from the higher floors and easier access to the front entrance and to the Strip. Having stayed at Bally's well over a dozen times, I prefer the Resort tower. The renovated rooms are a little newer and seem to be a little larger than the average Jubilee tower rooms. A Strip view room is not a high priority for me any longer, but a quiet room is, as I am a light sleeper. The exception for the Resort tower is not to select a room facing Flamingo Rd. The constant traffic noise and sirens blaring at all hours of the day...and night can be irritating. The Resort tower offers easier access to the pool; you can take the elevators directly to the lower level area without having to trudge through the casino as you would if you stay in the Jubilee tower. I did stay in an Executive room on the top floor facing east away from the Strip at the Flamingo during a recent trip. I found that room every nice, roomy and quiet. Check in at Bally's has been much easier at Bally's than the seemingly constant cluster f**k situation at the Flamingo check in area. Finally, the cocktail service at Bally's during my last two visits (earlier this year) has been abysmal. I took a tour of the casino on a Friday night and counted just three CW's working the entire crowded casino area and the only bar that was open was Sully's. NOSH was not open during my last stay and BLT Steak is still closed. I love playing VP at the Lobby bar at Bally's, but on my last two visits, the bar was open only on certain days, evenings only and closing at midnight due to lack of staffing. The bartenders at the Lobby bar are attentive and friendly. Conversely, I've encountered rude and surly bartenders at Sully's.

    Having stayed in both towers, the Resort tower is a better option. It’s closer to the pool, and while the Jubilee tower is strip views, we had a lower floor facing the night club at Paris. Not such a pleasant experience. IIRC the resort tower rooms are a tad larger.

    My preference is the Resort tower, with a room facing east or west...primarily to minimize the effects of noise from the street or clubs...
