Booked the Mirage! I hope I chose a great hotel.

I'm really more of a CET fan and don't like paying resort fees. Although as fellow TA'ers have pointed out, include them in the total rates. I did this along with booking with a third party (Expedia). Something else I haven't done in a few years. It was a great deal and have always wanted to stay at the Mirage, love the looks of the pool. Basically it came down to paying $20 more than staying at Bally's all in. I think I made the right choice!

I always thought I wasn't going to like staying at the Mirage (never liked the dark casino) but I've done it twice now in the last 2 months - really liked it a lot, and the pool does look like it would be great. Good choice.

Mirage for $20 more than Ballys? I think that is a great deal. It's definitely what I would've done.

Thanks WW, it was your thoughts and I believe Breeze's that made me feel better about staying there.

Has anyone had any luck getting a strip view by simply asking at check in? (without paying for it)

GREAT choice. The pool is awesome and the bed is THE best you will ever sleep in. Last time we were there, we asked about a strip view and the girl gave it to us for $8 more a night. I guess it's worth it. Anyway, you made a great choice and you will enjoy. Make sure to see LOVE and eat a burger for me at BLT.

We had great views both times (first time across the Strip and second time looking south - even better). We didn't ask for either, they were just what they gave us.

Mirage is a good hotel, and certainly worth $20 a night more than Ballys.

You might be able to get a Strip View room at Mirage, but you will actually see more Strip hotels if you ask for a pool view room facing south.
