    We have a Bally's jubilee premium king room booked right now for free(well, plus resort fee) for three nights. We can now get PHo ultra hip king room for just $34 more total. We go to LV a good bit so we know location of properties, what the casino's are like, etc. Just wondering, room wise, which is better? I'm thinking PHo but we have never stayed at either one. Has anyone stayed at both and can give some insight? Thanks.

    My avatar pic was taken looking out my Bally's Jubilee Room window. Click on it to get the full view...notice the Bellagio fountains on the right. I loved it and went to sleep with the curtains open.

    I've never stayed at Bally's but I always at least consider it when I'm booking a CET stay. I stayed in a PHo Ultra Hip on my last trip; it was my first time there after always staying at Caesars previously.

    I don't see the word "Premium" associated with any of the Bally's rooms, maybe it's the same as "Strip View?"

    I looked at a couple of videos of Jubilee rooms and I'd run the comparison vs an Ultra Hip like this:
    • Basically the same overall size
    • Both have refrigerators, which is nice
    • PH has the small windows, which they've counteracted by painting the rooms white, and it does make a difference, the room feels spacious.
    • PH if you have a Strip View, you have about a 50% chance of having a good fountain view because of the shape of the building - you have to be in what they call the north wing (ie. the left half of the building as you're facing it). At Bally's probably all of the Strip View rooms have a good view of the fountains as long as you're not on a low floor. (actually I have to take that back after looking at the Google Earth view of Bally's - if you're on the end of a floor, it would be good, and if you're on the south facing side, it's probably OK. But the north facing side would be Strip view without really having a fountain view)
    • PH the bathroom has a tub and shower and the water closet has a door. Bally's looks like shower only and no separate water closet.
    Bally's probably has a slight edge on the view because of the window size and what I mentioned about the footprint of PH. PH bathroom has the edge. PH maybe a small edge because of the attached mall and all the stuff that's located right outside on it's frontage, whereas Bally's is set back from the strip.

    For an $11/night diff, it's a tossup. If you like one property more than the other, I'd go with that. I liked the PH room and property enough to probably go with it over the Bally's room when the price is the same.

    This is a photo taken from the very last room at the end of the hallway at Bally's, and from the second floor from the top. I think this is pretty much maximum Bally's Fountain view, since the building is kind of perpendicular to it.

    Thanks all. Thanks Chuck for doing the leg work for me. Sounds like we should stay with Bally's. Looks like the view is much better.

    These are literally the last two rooms I stayed in and both are fine. I like the room a little better at Ballys and I had a pretty good view, much like the previous poster. However, I liked most everything else better at Planet Hollywood. Not sure I would pay more to stay. Kind of depends on how you feel about each location, outside of the room/view.

    I would also consider where you want to gamble. Ballys is great especially being connected to Paris. Easy switch when you go cold at the tables

    If you stay at Bally's beware of the noise from the neighboring night clubs, Drai at Cromwell and the Pairs Eiffel tower. Stayed on the top floor of the Jubilee Tower this week and the music from the Paris is very annoying
