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...

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.

I checked rates last night. I did not see what you are seeing. As a matter of fact, for the dates I was booking, the rates were higher for me than if I didn't bother logging in with my Total Rewards number.

That's what I'm thinking...for $8.50 per night, it's probably because they're building all AROUND it...
Then again, withOUT a TR card, it was $65 per night on those dates...so that might be normal...
I booked it..because it couldn't be any different/worse than MSS (which I was going to pay $25 a NIGHT; now I can stay THREE nights for the price of one!)

At your historic level of play TIMSPEED, you would probably be comped the $25 per night at MSS. You may want to reconsider, since it is convenient to stay where you play.

On the other hand, the Flamingo is the middle of the Strip, so it is pretty convenient to everything there.

Either way... have a great time!

I just checked, and I am able to stay for those days free everywhere except Caesar's Palace. Shoot, I just might plan a short trip in December at Paris.

Lol, I spoke to a host at MSS....they said they couldn't do anything for me, so I hung up. I proceeded to go online and get that $25 rate for my Mom AND I. (when a host said she could only give me $65 per night)
The only hard part is having to go out to eat and play at MSS...but for that kinda price....i almost can't pass it up

Does anyone know what the current parking lot conditions are for guests at the Flamingo? Didn't they tear part of the parking structure down when they imploded O'Sheas?

I had that happen to me once when I tried to book in AC. I called the 1-800-CAESARS number, and got a generic "Online is different than over the phone" to which I replied that without my number I got a better rate. I asked to speak to her manager, who gave me the same response.

Finally, I called the property directly, furious. I got a better rate than either the online or 800-CAESARS rate, but ended up cancelling in the end out of frustration (and getting the entire weekend free plus food in Tunica)

You guys do know that the period of time being discussed is very slow in Vegas. After the Rodeo leaves town, usually arond the 10th of December, the next 2 weeks right up until christmas eve are the slowest time of year in vegas, which does translate into some of the lowest rates. It also happens to be one of my favorite times. :) One thing to be careful about is that some restaurants and shows even close down during this time.

Heck I'm even getting Caesars Sunday-Thursday with minimal play in Vegas, although decent play at other locations due to Great Race. Seven day a week comps, Dec 1 to 28, at Rio, Harrah's, Bally's, and Imperial Palace (which may show how far Bally's has fallen in the Caesars hierarchy - I have never dropped a penny in Bally's). No free rooms for CES in January though.
