Bally's Las Vegas
(click any image to enlarge)
Bally's Las Vegas, like Harrah's down the Strip, suffers from an identity crisis. With no particular theme or "look," it's just another Las Vegas casino hotel. As Jerry Seinfeld would say, "Not that there's anything wrong with that." There is a special Diamond check-in to the far left of the front desk. If it's busy, look for the small Seven Stars placard to receive priority treatment. Self-parking in an adjacent garage (shared with Paris) is complimentary, but it's a bit of a walk if you have lots of luggage. Take advantage of the complimentary valet parking and you'll be within steps of hotel check-in. If business is taking you to the Convention Center, Bally's is directly on the monorail line, but it's a long walk from the casino to the station.
The casino has all the typical slots and table games one would expect, but it lacks "pizzazz." Complimentary drink service in the casino is relatively frequent; and dealers, slot attendants and servers all are extremely friendly and helpful.
For years Bally's main showroom was home to the long-running topless showgirl spectacular, Jubilee. The show closed February 11.
Other shows take place in the Windows Showroom (which, I believe, used to the the casino's buffet). Among them are Paranormal, Country Superstars, "Tony N' Tina's Wedding" and "50 Shades! The Parody".
For fine dining there is BLT Steak (with its decadent Sterling Brunch on Sundays), as well as SEA: The Thai Experience. In addition, there are Nosh, Sbarro, Java Coast and Nathan's Famous, as well as Buca Café Italiano and Tequila Taqueria. Nathan's Famous does not accept Reward Credits.

Should You Choose This For Your Annual Retreat?
Las Vegas remains the gaming mecca in the United States, and is probably the most popular destination for Seven Stars trips. With eight other Caesars properties in town (Caesars Palace, The Cromwell, Flamingo, Harrah's, The LINQ, Rio, Planet Hollywood and Paris), dozens of restaurants, nightclubs, golf, showrooms, the Forum Shops at Caesars (and other shops located inside Caesars properties), spa treatments, and relaxing by the pool (weather permitting), it would be easy to spend four nights (and $500) here – especially since you can "cross charge" to your room any meals, spa treatments, etc., even if they take place at another Caesars property in Las Vegas. For those without other transportation, complimentary shuttles for Total Rewards® members run regularly among several of the Caesars-owned casinos.
