Bally's, Flamingo, or Harrah's???

Want to book a room for December since I have total reward points to use. Can't decide between the three. Ive read all kinds of reviews on them. Good and bad. I have actually stayed at Bally's before. Willing to go back but maybe looking to change it up? Anyone have any suggestions. Not looking for fancy/extravagant. Just something that's clean and comfy. Rooms I was looking at:

Bally's - South Tower King

Flamingo - FAB Deluxe

Harrah's - Luxury

Any would be fine.

Ridiculous of me to stereotype, but I would go by age,

Youngest - Harrahs, purely because it opens up onto Carnival Court

Next youngest - Flamingo, great strip location and gets lively in the evenings.

Older - Bally's, a good honest hotel without the bells and whistle. An internal walk through to Paris which saves some walking.

I'm partial to Ballys,but sure enough I'm older so it fits. Its more easy going and I've always had good service all around. Larger rooms and the connection to Paris is great. Have fun

Here's an old guy that votes for Harrah's. The rooms are nothing special but they are okay and the Casino has a lot of vibe

and excellent cocktails service. Plus I saw a lot more older people on the casino floor that were my age then I did younger people. You are never too old for Carnival court, my wife and I have a blast there in we are in our sixties.

I would go for Bally's or Flamingo. I really don't like the casino at Harrah's, it's crowded, dark and smoky. Flamingo casino is brighter, the casino area around Margaritaville is newer. It's a pretty lively place. Casino at Bally's is okay, calmer if you don't want busy. Flamingo has the best strip access. Harrah's access isn't bad, but they are hampered by Linq construction. Bally's is set back from the strip access to strip through Paris or by a sometimes working moving sidewalk. Harrah's has a better buffet than the Flamingo, Flamingo has Margaritaville and a food court, cafe and some small snack bars. Bally's food choices are limited but they are connected to Paris, lots of options there. Pools at all 3 are closed right now.

1 Ballys/Paris

2 Flamingo or Harrahs, flip a coin.

Harrahs has more going on then Flam.

The Flam has the best pool grounds.

Harrahs has better variety.

I really don't care for Harrah's room or casino myself. Carnival court is lively, but you don't have to be staying there to enjoy that.

I'd probably go with Ballys of the 3.

Haven't stayed at Bally's, but I prefer Harrah's over Flamingo. Like location better and room was cleaner. Also Harrah's was closer to bus stops going either direction, a plus for us that like to be on the move. without all the walking.
