Ballys Las Vegas Hotel Review 2017

Right in the center of the action on the Las Vegas strip, Bally’s hotel and casino brings its guests the best of classic Las Vegas and a Rat Pack vibe. Owned by Caesar’s Entertainment, which is one of the world’s largest gaming companies, the hotel boasts more than 2,800 spacious hotel suites (measuring over 400 sq ft each). The North Tower was renovated in 2004, while the South Tower was renovated in 2013 and was renamed the Jubilee Tower in honor of Bally’s long-running show Jubilee! which began in 1981. Suites in both towers are fitted out in art-deco style furnishings.

Aside from its bustling 67,000 sq ft casino, Bally’s has its own shopping mall, tennis courts, a huge outdoor pool with private cabanas, several quality restaurants and good spots for late-night cocktails or beers. It’s easily accessible from the Las Vegas Monorail or the hotel’s neon-lit moving sidewalk around the front on Las Vegas Boulevard.
