    Looking at options for my Spring trip and planning to continue my CET tour. Stayed at Ballys and Planet Hollywood and now looking at a choice between a Burgundy room at Paris, a Valley Tower room at Harrahs or a Luxury room at the Linq. I know all have been remodeled within the last few years so should be in fairly good condition. Just looking for any feedback. Thanks!

    The Valley rooms at Harrahs are nice. Bedding is comfortable. New furniture.

    If I were you, I'd choose more by the vibe of the property. The Linq will be the most active and youthful. Is that you? Or would you prefer a crowd that's maybe a little older and to be surrounded by more sophisticated restaurants? That's Paris. A down the middle, straight ahead, what you see is what you get situation? That's Harrah's. The rooms you're looking at will all have newer and more comfortable beds, plenty of space, Center Strip location, etc. So I'd gauge it more by, what do you want to see when the elevator opens at lobby level?

    I loved my Burgundy Room at Paris in Sept. The Valley Tower is nice too. Haven't been in those rooms at Linq so can't really comment. I agree with bdauch that you should go with the casino vibe that suits you best.

    All rooms being equal, Paris has the best mix of location, luxury and options.

    On your list I've only stayed in the Burgundy Rooms in Paris. I'm a Francophile and like the casino a lot. But, my last trip I got a Jubilee Room at Bally's and asked for a good view. They put me looking right into the Eiffel Tower. It was the most amazing view I've had in Las Vegas...and in a semi-newly redone room. The view was so amazing right outside that I slept with the shades open...light be damned!

    I enjoy the casino at the Linq and Harrahs more than Paris so thinking maybe that's the way to go. Paris always feels a little stuck up to me but I have enjoyed that location and it is, overall, probably a nicer hotel so was wondering if the room quality was so superior as to be worth it. Not like any of these locations is bad and they are all within a few minutes walk of each other. Frankly I am leaning towards the Linq.

    I have a pretty extensive set of photos of my Burgundy room at Paris in my last TR in this post: https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?posts/1368324/

    Not sure if that helps or just confuses things. I think the vibe in the casino is more fun at Bally's, Harrah's and Flamingo, but I played mostly at Paris because it was "home". I'm not sure you can make a wrong choice on this one. :)

    The linq rooms would be a bit smaller, and that might be a factor in your decision. I don't like the dispensers in the shower with shampoo and conditioner etc. i'd like to take the little bottles home with me ha ha. Kind of a silly reason to take a hotel off the list, but that's me.

    I'm not a big fan of Paris but I think it's way better than Harrahs/Linq, I would definitely choose Paris under this scenario.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I guess my ultimate decision doesn't matter that much since I am planning to try all the CET locations at some point. I know the Linq rooms have a fridge but no coffee maker. And it appears the Burgundy room has a coffee maker but not sure about the fridge. Not much info on either for the Harrahs Valley rooms. Anyone know for sure?

    CET is mixing it up!

    Harrah's Valley Tower has coffee maker, no fridge.

    Linq has fridge, no coffee maker.

    Paris Burgundy and Bally's Jubilee have coffee maker (Keurig) and fridge.

    Coffee maker yes-but it was not a Keurig in Jubilee ( at least as of a couple months ago)

    Thanks for the correction. There are so many different combinations to keep track of!

    I'll be there Saturday- if it's different I'll post. Friends @ Paris but not sure of room type.

    I actually prefer the location and vibe of Harrahs over Paris honestly. While Paris is nice, I find that Harrahs has the easiest access to the monorail and strip with the least walking time to both from the room.

    What
    What floor did you get there? What else could you see beyond Eiffel Tower, if anything noteworthy? Booked for 4 nights next month in a Jubilee Strip view room. Expecting it to be awesome now!
