    If you walked into main entrance and faced the front desk, it would be in the hallway to the left. There are signs for the check in area. Diamond lounge (now called Laurel Lounge) is different but is also to the left.

    Does ballys have one of these as well? I'm guessing it would be open normal business hours? Thanks

    Getting to check in at the Diamond check in lounge has made Vegas so much more fun! As a micro-roller who has secured Diamond status, I get treated so well at Flamingo every time. Even though my play is puny, my last 3 rooms, which I booked at the cheapest rate I could find, I ended up being placed into rooms on the 23rd floor, 23rd floor and last week, the 25th floor! Yes, I always quietly put $20 on the counter and walk away without mentioning it. But I am treated so above my pay grade by the wonderful Diamond folks that I somehow enjoy Vegas even more now. Big fan here. Oh, and the mini-donuts were scrumptious!

    I would agree with an earlier poster about using Kiosks. We did that at CP on a recent trip around 2pm. Said no rooms, so I cancelled out and went to the desk. Got room right away. betting if we had walked around the corner to the real Diamond checkin, we might have done better - but rooms was fine.

    Yes, Bally's has a Diamond check-in. If you're facing the check-in desk, it's all the way on the left through a pair of frosted glass doors. Next to the bell-hop area by the escalators.

    They usually have beer or champagne available. Hosts have their desks in there as well. It's not open all day, but I don't recall the hours. If it's closed, they'll usually have a Diamond check-in line at the front desk.

    What is very nice, especially when it is hot in Vegas (I know that doesn't happen often lol............), you can stop in to the Diamond check-in at any time during the day when open and grab a couple more water shorties. Really helpful when you have taken a hot walk up the Strip in keeping hydrated. I miss the Linq one - they had a very nice one open for a while (then did more remodeling) and I don't think? they have replaced it. That had a fantastic coffee machine with good varieties and hot chocolate.

    At Rio (before I got a portable cell charger), both a friend and I left our cell phones in the Diamond lounge for an hour on a charger so we didn't run out of power. They plugged them in back behind the host desk so they didn't walk out with anyone.

    i found the diamond check in at Bally's always very easy and cool (last 5 years i always stay at ballys jubilee room..no more suites as i quit playing slots and bankroll is more tight)
    just be aware they are not 24/7(i think from 8 am till 8 pm....after 8 pm you just have to check in at diamond line) anyways always friendly staff and they give you couple bottle of waters as well.....i never will do the 20 sandwich trick as i know it wont work for me as i am staying most of the time for 3 weeks or longer(so they wont able to upgrade me for 3 weeks in a suite->so no im not gonna even try!!!) if you stay for shorter time a couple of days(like my vegasbuddy @smerrian ) than if i was you i would try..smerrian got a nice suite upgrade(dont know if he payd for it) that was last year(see TR soo funny he got room across mine(his room was a nice suite though but he stayed only for 2 days i think)

    Just to clarify, there is no Diamond Check-in Lounge. It is to the left of the Main Lobby facing the front desk. It is call VIP check-in. It is for Seven Stars and Diamond holders. It is right across from Starbucks on your right and just before the Augustus Tower.

    what if you hit diamond, but do not have a diamond rewards card - can you still use the diamond check-in and do they check your membership card?

    also at caesars is the entrance on flamingo road open/available for diamond members, or do you still have to use the main entrance off the strip?

    Your diamond status will be associated with your reservation. Ive never needed to have my actual card to check in.
    Yes, the side entrance by the Laurel collection towers is a great way to get in/close to the diamond check in lounge

    Right so you can just direct your uber to drop you off there and then head in that side entrance? seems to make sense.

    Diamond checkin has it's own culture. With that said, it doesn't matter where you got your room from. It can be upgraded at the Diamond Checkin.
