    Jubilee tower, odd room number ending in 11 to 39. That’s if you want a south strip and Eiffel Tower view. The other side of the tower looks out at Caesars and the High Roller and a partial north strip view.

    We like Jubilee but have never stayed in the Resort tower. Should be giving Resort a shot in just under 2 weeks provided cancelations don't free us up for some nice upgrades that stick us back into Jubilee.

    I think the resort rooms are larger but sometimes the walk is long and there are lots of twists and turns in the hallway. Either tower is nice, I like the high roller views, I will close the sheers and watch the wheel change colors as I fall asleep.

    I've stayed in both towers numerous times.

    The Jubilee Tower has some better views and shorter hallways. The rooms were remodeled a year or two before the Resort rooms, but are holding up very well. You're closer to Bally's front entrance and valet in Jubilee. But the walk thru the casino to the Resort Tower elevators is really only a minute or two. Resort Tower is closer to most restaurants. You can take an elevator directly down to the lower level where the shops, attractions, food court, sportsbook and pool is. The rooms in the Resort Tower are a tad larger than Jubilee. But even Jubilee base rooms are some of the largest on the strip for base rooms.

    As someone who has been to Vegas so many times that I don't care about a view, it's really a toss-up. There's slight individual advantages to both. But the property is so easy and quick to get around in compared to most every other large strip property that I'm fine in either tower.

    You also asked about rooms.

    There is really no difference at all between a type of room in Jubilee and the same type of room in Resort. Resort rooms can be a tad bigger. But the design and layouts are mostly identical.

    Nothing wrong with the base rooms. The studio "suites" are larger and have a tabl/chairs and some comfy chairs.

    The Executive Suites have the large tub, his and her sides/sinks/closets, but I believe only king beds.

    Those are probably the rooms most people book or will be able to get upgraded to from a base room when they check in. I've stayed in actual, larger, one bedroom suites and they are very nice.

    Jubilee rooms typically have better views but they can be noisy. They don’t bother me much but if you need a quiet room to sleep in, go with a resort room

    The tower facing Flamingo Rd (Cromwell) has, or recently had, some ridiculous suites that were probably last updated in the 1980s. Our friends got a free upgrade to one a few years ago without even asking for it, let alone giving a $20 tip, just by being friendly and happy to be there.* It was at least 1500 square feet, bigger than their house. There was a giant jacuzzi tub in the bedroom and a wet bar and another room that I can really only describe as a bridal dressing room that is larger than some hotel rooms I have stayed in in NYC or Washington DC. It was awesome in every possible dimension. If you want to live large old time Vegas style, that's your angle.

    * They were not frequent vegas visitors and unfamiliar with etiquette. I gently encouraged her to go back to the front desk and give her checkin person a tip, which she gladly did.

    Just FYI, if it matters, Resort Tower hot tubs are soaking tubs while Jubilee ones are jetted.
