    I heard some hotels give you a card to use while gambling to earn discounts on food shows etc. I'm staying at harrahs in may, do they have one?

    1. As of now, Harrahs does not charge a resort fee. That's always subject to change in the future, though.

    2. The pool at Harrahs is outdoors and nice enough, but nothing spectacular (and is typically closed from sometime in early October until the weather warms in March or April). It's a good place to relax for a while in the afternoon, but it's not a real "scene" like pools at Caesars Place, Mandalay Bay and a few other spots on the Strip.

    3. Unless there's some sort of special event -- which doesn't usually happen at the Harrahs pool -- you can sit poolside anytime the area is open.

    Rooms in the Carnival Tower at Harrahs are newer and a little larger than those in the Mardi Gras Tower, so many people request a room there.

    Both Harrahs and Ballys have very good mid-Strip locations, but neither have great pools. That's not to say they're bad, just more serviceable than spectacular. If a pool scene is important, you might want to add the Flamingo and the Tropicana to your list of candidates. Both are in the same approximate price range as Ballys and Harrahs, and both are a bit better in the pool area. The Flamingo is pretty much smack in the middle of the Strip while the Trop is on the south end, near the MGM Grand.

    Michelle, I believe you'll have to request an in-room coffee maker when you check in. Don't be surprised if they charge extra for it.

    Of course you could just get your brew from the downstairs Starbucks.
