It happened again. Caesars lured me to Harrahs with a Waterfront Tower room bait all comp'd for the weekend and when I got here, they switched me to a Harbour Tower room. If this happened once, I wouldn't mind but this happens every single time. I'm beginning to believe that it's their policy. Does anyone else experience the Caesars bait and switch or am I just a victim of variance?

It's happened to me several times...though they usually give me some free play or comp $ toward food "for my trouble". Always at Harrahs, no other place in AC has done it to me.

Raw deal. At least a Marina room if not the expected Bayview fallback. Did they offer any mea culpas? If it was this weekend, it might have been tight with both St. Valentine's Day and Presidents' Day.

It happened to me 4 or 5 times. It's the main reason I go to Borgata now

I'm guessing that if you don't complain about it, it will keep happening.

Do you have a host? If so, complain. If not, ask to talk to a host, and complain. If you got a room of lower value than what you were offered, they should make it up to you in some way. Extra food comps, or some freeplay, or something. Make it clear that you aren't coming back ever again if they don't give you what they promised you (and follow through if they don't fix it). It's clear that they want you there or they wouldn't be sending you offers -- you have some leverage here.

Back when I was frequenting AC more often, I seriously considered giving CET my play and by the recommendation of some people here, I checked out TripAdvisor. It has never happened to me, but I read that many people were thrown into Claridge (when CET owned it) when told they would be Bally's.

For those of us abroad, can you please explain what the big difference is between the two? towers? Thank you.

They still do that. That has happened to me there too. Booked the Dennis but got the Claridge.

It happened to us but we weren't bothered by it. A free room for my wife's modest penny slot play was fine. It brought back fond memories of the Claridge of old.
