So I'm not really any kind of Harrah's player (392 tier points TOTAL)
But we're going to Vegas near Christmas (the weekend prior)
We HAVE reservations at MSS for $25 a night for 2 nights (Sun 12/23-Mon 12/24) which I thought was GOOD...
But I logged into TR..and I saw during the same dates, Flamingo will give me a "FAB" room for $8.50 per night!!! WTF?!

It's pretty ridiculous they won't just make it a comp.

For what it's worth, I just check the rates myself.

For EVERY night from Sun 12/16 thru Mon 12/24 (INCLUDING that weekend!) I got a rate of $10 per night.

I guess they love you more than me...


Oddly, the same period, Harrah's is $30 for the weeknights and $15 for that weekend.


IP is $17 per weeknight for all of December, and $16, $19, and $25 per night for each weekend.



The other properties have more normal rates, with weekend rates higher than weeknight.

If you go to book it, they knock off 15% for two nights or more...
We were there in may for a wedding and it wasn't too bad...

They will if you see a casino host before you check out.

Sorry Nicky, this is a Caesars property in Vegas. They don't comp anybody anything...

Correct. I do not plan to PLAY there...just curious why the ROOM RATES are so incredibly low?! (I repeat I am NOT a Harrah's player; I simply have a TR card to get discounts on buffets or whatever they may have)

I love the Flamingo for the location and those rates. They are for real. Problem with me is, I live in West Virginia, and a roundtripper from Pittsburgh to Vegas is what kills me, even on Southwest.

As a gold member staying at Bally's the first three times in Vegas. I had the nerve to go into the diamond club casino host club next to checkin and ask to see someone. I ask him to look at my play, ($5 player 7/8 hours a day) and told him I made the trek from the east coast, stayed there and would certainly come back again to Ballys if I felt I were valued. Each time they were very cordial and cleared my bill which included a meal or two at Al Dente's (4 years ago). I've since get my stays comped so I haven't needed to ask.

I've played about 2 hours there over the past 20 months and saw I can get a free room everywhere but Caesar's and Paris those dates. I'd have to pay $44 for the Sunday at PH but would get the Monday free. It's not particularly busy before Christmas but the place is a madhouse before New Year's Eve.

My play was just penny slots to get a checkpoint for the Great Race to Rewards and some minimum bet Let it Ride, and I walked out $100 ahead. They just have a big room inventory and would rather fill them cheaply than have them sit empty.
