    This is a quick pop in trip between a customer visit on West Coast. Could not pass up free play , resort credit, and room offer from CET.

    Not to mention I wanted to break in the new lobby bar at Bally’s.

    Couple of early hits since right after touchdown. [​IMG]

    The gambling gods decried my luck and sent an electric ️ surge to my slot smoking it 6 spin in.

    Well I learned something new today. Bally's Resort rooms on the far east side of tower and below 16th floor are some of the nosiest.
    My windows overlooked the intersection of Flamingo and Linq lane (perfect view of stage door and Batista). The following was heard constantly into the wee hours.

    - Car Alarms going off
    - Horns blaring from disgruntled drivers.
    - Ambulance and Police alarms

    It was worse then the rooms facing Chateau at Paris. Woke up ever hour. So boys and girls
    new rule. Always ask for higher than 16th floor and rooms number lower than XX84 avoid noise.

    I guess we'll let you join...
    Yeah our first stay ever as a couple at bally's was on the 9th floor facing Flamingo Rd. M was terrified with all the ambulance noise the first night. In the resort tower we always ask to face the pool. View sucks, but it's quiet.

    Hope you had a great rest of your trip!

    I stayed on the 12th floor facing Paris and it was quiet as can be.

    Well the sting of defeat is starting to wear off, so I will post the summary here tomorrow after I sort thru the photos.
    The short version of the TR summary is that I got my ass handed to me gambling wise around 4 hours after arriving.

    It was a brutal losing trip, one of those that happens every five years where every spin was a loser. Variance made me her
    bitch. Of course I went on tilt which just added to the sting. Had to crash in the room the last day bitter and defeated.

    Did meet some good folks and the people watching NRF was excellent.

    Even higher floor doesn't help much. Ambulance and police siren are almost constant even during the night. It is best to ask for Jubilee tower. It is more quite even if your room is still facing Flamingo Rd, But strip view would be the best.

    Sorry to hear that you have a losing trip. Was your gambling mainly at CET properties? We had 2 losing trips in a row. We are thinking of switching to either Cosmo or Mlife, will give Cosmo a try next trip in Funerary.
