Harrahs Harbour Deluxe or Marina Luxury

I've never stayed at Harrah's, only Borgata, so I need some help.

On a weeknight, I can get a Harbour Deluxe Room or Marina Luxury comped.

I could get a Bayview Premium for $129 or Waterfront Premium for $159.

I don't really care about price, but if I can get something for free, why not. The Marina Luxury looks ok, but I hope I won't be disappointed. What are the major differences between these rooms?

Thanks in advance.

The harbor tower is he oldest at harrah's and marina tower a a bit better. Book the marina luxury and maybe you'll ft get an upgrade to bayview or waterfront if you ask, if not it's ok.

Thanks

I think I'll book the Waterfront Premium. I'm nervous about the comped rooms. Either that or I'll use one of my comped rooms at the Borgata and drive over to Harrahs. The only reason I'm even considering Harrahs is for the Monday night Luaus.

We have been going to Harrahs for 30 years and have never had a problem with rooms. No rooms are original all having been renovated. Free is free and do what you want but I would not spend $159 when a free room is available. The location of the Harbour tower is great and a lot of folks love the tower for that reason.

i am in 1005agreement with frank. yes i may love any borgotta room,but we have stayed at harrahs about 10 times now,7 out of 10 weve had the harbor tower and were always very happy. great location ,easy acces to the brigatine entrance.

weve also had the marina tower, the plus there is it seems atleast a little better security with you needing to use your key to operate the elevator( last i knew you didnt with the harbor tower) maybe its for sentimental reasons but we just seem to enjoy the harbor tower more,except for being closer to the coffee shop. our next trip we are comped in the bayview tower,but eventhough im very much looking forward to checking out a new part of the hotel,i just wouldent see myself paying for it, harrahs rooms are very nice and comped is comped.

I also agree. Never had a problem with rooms in Harrah’s. The comp rooms there are fine.

Take the free room. Save your money for the casino.

If the room itself matters I think the Waterfront are closest to Borgata rooms. They may actually be a little nicer with HDTV's. It's where I stay when I go to Harrah's.

Thanks for all of your input. I'm actually still on the fence because I know myself, I'm extremely fussy. I guess I don't mind so much if the rooms aren't as updated as the Waterfront rooms but I don't want to stay in rooms that are gross. If they look dirty or worn, I will sleep in my car. Some of the pics of the rooms on the TA reviews are kind of scary and so are some of the reviews. Part of me is saying "go for the room that you know you'll like" and the other part is saying "hello??? FREE"

Many people expect the world. You are the only one who knows if you are one of them. Don't ask us to make a decision for you since we don;t know you. It's your money so spend it as you wish. Never had a gross room at Harrahs but if you are afraid, stay at the Borgota. Either way, enjoy and stop worrying about it....life is too short!

now that you mentioned you are a bit fussey ,and not showing much concern for the price then maybe you should pay for the upgrade. personally i wouldent,and im only looking forward to having a bayview room because its a special occasion. i would hate to steer you wrong and have you not enjoy your stay in ac. whatever your decision is,enjoy and let us know about your trip afterwards.
