    If you had comped rooms at all Ceasers properties except Nobu which place has the nicest basic rooms/size.
    Cromwell looks nice but the rooms seem small.

    I’m leaning towards Paris burgandy end of hallway room.

    I would take CP Augustus tower room, if available.

    Depending on the time of year, and how often you go I would give two reccomendations.

    1. If you go in the cool season, and aren't going to be visiting the pool, CP Augustus all the way, nice fountain views, great rooms.
    2. If you are going during pool season, or have already had your fill of the fountain view rooms, I prefer the renovated palace tower rooms at CP. You are right beside the pool, the rooms are quite large, and i believe the rack rate on them is quite a bit lower than the Augustus rooms

    Basically, if you have comped rooms at CP, stay at CP

    CP Augustus has great rooms.

    BUT - where will you be doing most of your play?

    Pool usage plays a big part.
    If the pool is of no interested and if staying a few days then avoid Ceasers as the walk from your room to the strip will get old quickly.
    Cromwell is on my list of places to stay but have avoided it due to the night club noise.
    I would go with your original idea and choose Paris burgandy end of hallway room.

    Curious - would someone go for a comp room at PH vs. paying for a palace room at CP?

    I would certainly say Caesars. The Augustus rooms are fantastic, as many here have said already.

    To be honest, I really don’t get what’s so great about the Cromwell. The place is small and dingy and the Drai’s crowd on weekends makes for a sometimes unpleasantly boisterous setting, especially considering the small size of the place. Rooms are sort of dingy IMO too. I wouldn’t stay again. Have to admit there are some good games in the casino, though.

    I get comped at most Caesars properties in Vegas throughout the year (weekdays). I will again be staying free for 5 nights in June. I had a choice between Harrah's, LinQ, Flamingo, Bally's, Rio, and PHO. Once in awhile i get comped at Caesars Palace but for only 2/3 nights weekdays, not 5. If i got CP comped for 5 nights (i did one time and grabbed it), like i do at most other Caesars properties, CP would be my home base. I used to get 5 comped nights at Paris a long time ago in a Galaxy far far away. But for some reason, i never get any comps at Paris anymore, even for 2/3 nights, even though i do most of my gambling at Paris.

    But for me personally, with the exception of CP, IMO Bally's is the best Hotel overall, at least it is for me because they give me 5 free nights, which is my #1 priority, plus the hotel itself, with the location (Bally's/Paris are linked together), the rooms at Bally's are large, you can use two pools (Bally/Paris), and the property is something that i've been comfortable at going back to when it was MGM.

    Bally’s is a nice mix of comfort, rooms and strip location. I put a premium on ability to get on the strip quickly, which means Paris, PH and Bally’s all rank high, with Cromwell being, for me, about the best possible location!

    Caesars by far if you get Palace, Octavius, or Augustus towers. All three have standard rooms between 500-700 square feet, all three have jetted tubs and seperate walk in showers in standard rooms, etc. BUT, none of those three towers are their most basic rooms. Forum and Julius towers arent nearly as nice, but are still decent, and they often will auto-upgrade when you get one, especially Forum, which I guess is their most basic. Seems like they upgrade people out of there to Palace or better more often than not, but you can't alway count on that 100%. An extra $20 to the front desk doesn't hurt though. If all nights were free Id risk Caesar's over Paris and worst case you end up in a forum or Julius room neither of which is bad, just nit nearly as nice as the three bigger newer towers (some may disagree on forum rooms I guess).

    Yes, preferrably at the Jubilee Tower (or the South Tower before Jubilee). I have stayed a few times at the Resort Tower ( or Indigo/North Tower). To me Bally's is the two Towers, the North Tower, or the South Tower. The room itself is basically the same, but i like staying closer to the Strip, it's just a preferance. And CVS is right there too.........LOL.
    I like being closer to the Strip as i do a lot of walking going south/north. What i do is if i'm walking south i'll exit at the front entrance and walk out through the Bazaar.....if i'm walking north i'll use the red light to cross Flamingo Blvd to the Valet entrance of Cromwell.

    Yes... this! Bally’s all the way. I think I Ballys is over looked. I love the location, easy to get anywhere. Rooms are updated and spacious. Two pools... in my eyes, hard to beat.

    I am staying at Bally’s in 2 weeks. Are you saying there is another exit other than out front and through Bazaar shops? Thanks

    Yes, it's just after the Registration desk. It's the exit where the shuttle/airport/etc, buses are. I use both at Bally's depending on where i am in the Casino. If i'm coming down to the casino from my room (Jubilee) to walk to Cromwell and points north, i use the front exit to the stop walk to cross the street and into the back of Cromwell.
    If i'm in the back of Bally's casino/food court/race book, i use the exit in the center which is the same at the front to get to points north. Of course, there are times at Bally's where i go through the Bally's/Paris tunnel to do whatever.
    There are a few entrances/exits at Bally's depending where you are at. If you're in the food court/race book you can exit onto Flamingo Blvd if you want to go to Ellis Island etc. I don't normally use this exit, i'll just use the escalator and walk to the center exit instead.
    You can use this property map at Bally's: https://www.caesars.com/content/dam/blv/Property/Maps/blvmap.pdf

    It depends on what is important.
    I don't mind paying a bit more if the room seems worth it, but never do because my wife argues that the money could be put to better use like gambling. :D
    To her, FREE trumps paying every time.

    Actually, I hate using that exit where the airport shuttle is. You have to walk all the way down that driveway with no real sidewalk and dodging all of the cars, taxis and shuttles racing up to the entrance. The safest and fastest way to use the crosswalk is the first one you mentioned - exiting through the front valet and make a right. You will literally be right at the stairs that take you down to the crosswalk. No matter what, you still have to walk that way anyway - the same exact distance, whether you are inside or outside - to get to the crosswalk. You might as well do it without having to dodge vehicles coming up the driveway! (that doesn't mean you still don't have to be careful because those cars coming out of the valet can also be treacherous, but I feel the front exit is not as bad as the shuttle one)!

    Definitely Caesars, but I prefer Octavius Tower rooms (more private and comfy to me than the Augustus) but for the view, obviously Augustus.
