Go with Harrahs only if you get a Valley room (the renovated rooms) the other rooms are gross. But if not I would go with Flamingo it’s only like a couple more feet and The Linq Promenade would get you quick eats and some fun. But honesty if it’s just you The Linq would work too all the rooms are new-ish. Harrahs Casino is run down. Harrah's tends to have a noisy crowd, probably averaging a little younger than the Flamingo. The Carnival Court outside is a lot of fun, and captures the spirt of New Orleans pretty well. The casino is much more pleasant in the Flamingo, in my opinion. Harrah's casino always seems too cramped to me. Flamingo's sports book is smaller than Harrah's.

Caesars Entertainment is bringing live entertainment back to its Las Vegas Strip casinos, with the first resuming today.
It’s another step toward normalcy for the industry that has been battered by the COVID-19 pandemic that kept many would-be tourists home.
“Live entertainment is an important part of the Las Vegas experience that makes visiting this city so special, and we are thrilled that we can be first to offer it to our guests again,” Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment at Caesars Entertainment, said in a press release.

Caesars will still have coronavirus-related health precautions in place for guests attending the live shows. There will be verbal health screenings, contactless temperature checks, mandatory masks and lower capacity with modified seating arrangements to allow for social distancing.

In addition to the scheduled performances, Caesars said it will host a variety of musicians in its various lounges and bars going ahead.
The Strip shut down because of the coronavirus in March, causing major losses for hotels and casinos and putting thousands of people out of work. Some hotels began reopening in June, but visitors have been slow to return.
Caesars isn’t the only hotel owner looking to bring back normal events to Las Vegas. MGM Resorts announced last month that it had put plans in place to safely host meetings and conventions at its properties.
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Additional cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed on the Las Vegas Strip.
Thursday, a Caesars Entertainment spokesperson confirmed two COVID-19 positive cases at the Flamingo hotel-casino, along with contact tracing protocols being implemented.
Casinos in Nevada reopened their doors to the public on June 4 with new safety protocols in place during the ongoing pandemic, but positive cases have since been reported.
Harrahs Or Flamingo Restaurant
Wednesday, MGM Resorts confirmed an employee working in the kitchen at the Mayfair Supper Club at the Bellagio hotel-casino had tested positive for COVID-19 with the restaurant closing as a precaution.
Caesars representatives did not immediately say if the two cases at the Flamingo property were guests or workers.
Health officials say the time between exposure of the virus and experiencing the onset of symptoms takes an average of 5 to 6 days, but it also can be up to 14 days.
