We check in late. room was not ready. so they put us in a suite WOW! This was very nice, next day had our room ready so we had to move.
I don't play slots so not much to say there, but craps table was nice. Dealers were great. We got hooked on keno while eating in sidewalk cafe which was a very nice place. They give points on players card, same as playing. Mon Ami Gabi was very nice, the food was great.
Our flight was canceled due to hurricane last year. Had to stay an extra night. The staff were able to fix us up with a room so everything worked out just fine. Bally's in the middle of the strip. Doesn't get much better than this.
I have heard the north tower is dated and although I always book the north tower, I generously tip the front desk and they almost always put me in a remodeled room. The remodeled rooms (south tower) are super nice with granite floors in the spacious bathroom and clean spacious rooms.
The restaurant selection isn't great, but the location is fantastic. Bally's has a tunnel (more like a long mall) that connect Ballys to Paris, you can walk right over to the world renowned Burger Brassiere, home of the $777 burger - don't worry the regular burger is under $10 and it has a nice sports bar atmosphere.
If you continue walking through the connection between Ballys and Paris, there is a faboulous place where you can get crepes. Get a breakfast crepe, or if its later in the day, try one of the dessert crepes. and then in front of Paris is Mon Ami Gabi.
Mon Ami Gabi has a patio on the stip that overlooks the Bellagio fountains, and they are the BEST FILET MIGNONS I have ever had. We go to Mon Ami every time we're in Vegas.
The rooms at Paris were suprisingly small (we stayed there last time), so we're going back to our old favoirte Bally's where we can be in the best value hotel rooms on the strip - i really believe that - and be close to all the action!
Bally's is now part of the Harrah's family and HAD a very nice Diamond Card Lounge. Unfortunately it closed because of it's close proximity to the Diamond Longe located in Paris (another Harrah's property).
I highly recommend the Sidewalk Cafe for good food, nice service and timely seating. The Cafe gladly accepts Harrah's comps.
