Which Hotel/Room Would YOU Choose??

These are all for 4 nights. We dont gamble. Want to lounge by pool, sleep in comfy bed, people watch, sight see, go to shows and eat good food :) So, most important...good pool, great beds, rooms that don't stink like smoke and good location.

Which would you choose? Are any of these a good deal?? Thoughs???

MGM Grand - Deluxe Grand King 280

New York - Skyline Room 222 or Park Ave Room 262

Planet Hollywood - Hollywood Hip Room 208

Monte Carlo - Deluxe 247

Luxor - Pyramid Deluxe 218 or Tower Deluxe 262

Advice is much appreciated :)

MGM.

Location not the best, but the rooms are comfy, there's a great selection of restaurants on-property and the pool area is the best of those on your list.

Second choice would be Monte Carlo.

Planet Hollywood is in a better spot and there's more "action," but the pool area is a notch or two below the other two.

P H could be an option as you will save a few $. No resort fee last time I checked.

MGM is the best of the bunch. Great pool area but there will be around $20 a night resort fee.

Depends how important saving cash is.

Of the choices and your your requirements I would opt for MGM. Based on pools avoid NYNY.

OK, really? Other than the pool, PH is as nice as MGM...I stayed in MGM rooms 12 years ago & thought "meh"--have they remodeled since? PH has better location as well, and MGM is really $360 w/ resort fees--PH still $208.

Actually, I find PH to be a nicer casino--MGM is cavernous.

BUT if the pool is very important, pick MGM. It will be more crowded, tho. And while PH pool is "meh" it tends to have a party atmosphere & and attractive crowd...

Not sure what the prices are running for your dates but I would also check out Mirage. It meets all your criteria. I love it.

Heather--forgive me...a pool is clearly important to you (sry, reading too fast)...MGM pool is far superior.

PH is your best value...but you will sacrifice an impressive pool.

MGM for sure. Lovely place, great pools, great restaurants, large enough that you don't feel cramped up in a casino environment if you don't like that.

MGM also has a wonderful Cirque du Soleil show in house called Ka. It is spectacular!! I recommend it very highly. Check the website or search for Summer of Cirque promotion for great discounts.

The only 2 hotels on your list that I would stay at are MGM and Monte Carlo. If it were pool weather we would choose MGM. If it were too hot or cold to use the pool most of the day we would stay at Monte Carlo.
