AC First Time - C E T Comp Room Comparisons

I will be staying in AC, midweek, the 3rd week of June. It will be my first time in AC. I have been going to Vegas for many years and am a low level Diamond player. I have a few comp'd room choices for C E T properties. I do not care the location since I will be hitting them all to check out what I like. A good view is preferable, but not a deal breaker. A newer, clean room would be nice. For those who can compare, which would you suggest. These are my choices:

Harrah's - Marina Deluxe

Ceaser's - Premium or Premium Ocean View King

Showboat - New Orlean's Deluxe

Bally's - Tower DLX 2 Beds, Dennis Luxury or Bally's Luxury Tower.

I will be travelling alone, so the king bed is preferred.

What are your suggestions?

Caesar's ocean view King.

First you get a King bed and an ocean view.

Second since this is your first trip to A.C. Caesar's is not only on the boardwalk, it is centrally located and very convienant to Caesar's pier The Walk shops etc.

Just a heads up ,A.C. is no Las Vegas.

I would recommend Caesars or Bally's...it is centrally located on the boardwalk and the two casinos are right next to each other. Showboat is farther down the boardwalk. Harrah's is not near anything and not on the boardwalk..,,worth the trip though as I find it more fun to play there.

Most definitely Caesars, no contest. Both the room & bath are very roomy (more open) & very clean. Although the bathroom doesn't have a tub, it more than makes up with the large, glass-enclosed shower with seat bench & a water lever temperature adjustor. I personally have often stayed in a Caesars Premium &/or a Luxury room & have always been extremely pleased with the accommodation.

I agree with the Caesars premium room. I am surprised you were only offered the two rooms listed at both Harrahs and Showboat as they're the lower end rooms at both properties.

I agree with all of the above....Caesars should be the best choice for a first time visitor, especially with the premium room ocean view room.

I also agree with Caesars because of location. Just do not let Caesars to put you in the Temple tower. The premium rooms you should ask for are in the Centurian tower. Temple tower rooms are the delux rooms, which are just awful compared to the rooms located in the Centurian tower. You need to be specific when you first arrive and check in, because regardless of what your confirmation says, sometimes the desk clerks just put you in any room that comes up on their screen. I suggest that you ask for Centurian tower, waterview, and high floor.

If you are going to use a pool, then Harrah's by far. It has a great pool area. It includes a pool, 5-6 hot tubs, drink service, and no one under 21 is allowed in. It is inside, under a huge dome. So outside weather doesn't matter.

If a pool is important, then I would go with Harrah's. It is the best pool out of all CET properties and there is a good chance you can get an upgrade since you are going midweek. If a pool is not important then definitely Caesar's. You can't beat the location.
