I am staying at the Claridge starting this Thursday (3-2-06) through Sunday. I have read the not so glowing reviews of the Claridge. Some friends and I just plan on gambling most of the time and only sleeping in the room. My question, are there any better rooms, views, or floors, in the Claridge to request at check-in??? I would hope since we are arriving on a Thursday we could get a better selection. Looking forward to my first trip to A/C!!!!
