Just got good offers for MGM and Harrahs have friends staying at Excalibur head says stay nearby at MGM but know Harrahs is better placed. Which would you choose also which has better chance of getting strip view.

I'd opt for Harrahs, esp if you've never been to vegas. It's center strip so you can see and are close to almost everyhting. MGM is a bit higher class though.

A long way from Harrah's to Excal, and the view at Harrah's is certainly nothing to write home about.

I do like their casino and restaurants.

All things being equal, I'm thinking MGM

Personally, I would choose Harrahs ~ and in fact I am staying at Harrah's in 5 days! I like the mid-strip location of Harrah's much better than MGM. It depends on how important it is to you to be close to your friends. Any chance the friends could stay at Harrah's with you? Check on their Hot Deals on their website ~ my brother was able to get the same rate on the Hot Deals that I was offered for my players club offer ~ $60 a night.

MGM is closer to Excal and has many more rooms with Strip views than Harrah's.

I'm not a big MGM fan, but I would definitely choose it over Harrah's even though Harrah's location is better. MGM is just a better facility overall.

This is an easy choice. MGM is a better hotel and a better location for your purposes.

Go for MGM.

When we first visited 2 years ago I did not feel that location was as important as you'd think. You spend so much time nipping up and down the strip in taxis etc. that it doesn't really matter it you are at the south end or in the centre. The only end I wouldn't stay is North.

MGM is a much nicer hotel than Harrahs. I did like gambling at Harrahs though and they have a fun Dueling Pianos bar there also.
