Opinions needed

I am staying at Planet Hollywood for 5 nights starting March 17. The first 3 are comped.Wed is 74 and Thursday is 124. I am wondering if I should go downtown on Wed and Thursday. I can get The Freemont for 150 with no player cad. They said they would look at my play before I leave. I am 50/50 on weather to stay on the strip or go downtown. I love watching March Madness at Planet Hollywood, but we do that every year. I haven't been downtown in 3-4 years. Thought I would see what all you fine people would do.Thanks!

To me, Downtown is nice to take a cab or bus to for the night but then return to the strip. Downtown can be pretty slow during the day. MY experiences downtown we arrived around 430pm and it was really quite at first. So I would stay on the strip and visit downtown. that's just my opinion.

unclear- would the Fremont, or PH, be the one to look at your play before you leave? If there is a chance that PH would extend your comps to Wed-thurs, I would stay there for 5 nights and visit DT like prev.poster states.

If you like the again the party atmosphere then stay on the strip. DT will not compare.

I would also agree ph would likely look at your play before you leave. It is also such a fun hotel to be at. You should look into watching a game at the Colosseum. If you get a good seat it will be the best game you ever watch. The food kinda sucks though

Thanks, I was just watching Live at Daryls house and Ceelo was on. Now I have never been much of a fan, but he was really good on the show. I think it made my mind up, since his shows are on Wed and Thursday. Thanks!

I like the fru-fru of the strip and only go downtown for an evening every few trips for a few hours. If I were a serious VP or BJ player looking for better payouts, I would be more inclined to stay downtown.

Unless I am mistaken Thursday will be the big day for watching games. Are you sure you want to spend that day Downtown? I would think that would be the one day you would want to spend in a Strip sportsbook. Isn't that why you are going that week?
