    Hello everyone! Heading to Vegas in april with 3 friends, no wives. We did this same trip in January and stayed at Caesars ( because it was comped ). This time, only one of us is comped at Caesars, so we are going to stay somewhere else. Basically we drink, gamble, eat, and hit the pool here and there. We are staying at a CET property, but I'm torn between bally's/flamingo/PH/Harrahs. We are all in our mid 30's, and will hit the diamond lounge at happy hour for a few drinks every night before going for dinner.


    Pro's and Cons of each

    Bally's

    PROS: Central location, nice pool, close to Cromwell (100x odds on craps ) monorail

    CONS: dated, no diamond lounge ( i think )

    Flamingo

    PROS : awesome pool central location fun gambling close to cromwell , monorail

    CONS: EXTREMELY dated last time i was there , poor food selection, although the pool is nice, i dont want to be at a night club in the day. diamond lounge isn't very good

    PH

    PROS: Updated rooms , good restaurants, good atmosphere, nice atmosphere, nice diamond lounge

    CONS: expensive tables , not central, small pool

    Harrahs

    PROS: central location , ok diamond lounge , updated rooms are nice great gambling for craps, monorail

    CONS: small pool, smoky atmosphere

    Just kicking this all around, any advice would be helpful thanks!

    You may want to factor in the the Flaming-O might still be in the process of their room remodels. That potentially could affect you.

    Pool shouldn't matter when ur Diamond because u can go to any and skip the line. Personally I would stay at PH. Best of them all and u can gamble at any of the Ceasers properties and go to any pool. Flamingo adult pool is the best by far and they have a diamond line to skip the crowd.

    Ballys is connected to Paris and shares their Diamond Lounge

    Really, you could do Ballys/Paris combo, as some of you may be comped at Paris

    You could also stay at Linq and use the Flamingo pool IIRC since you're Diamond
