I'd go with PH. Classy and the clientele is precisely in your age range. However, if you plan on using the pool don't expect a whole lot.

How many rooms? Which Dates? There is a huge difference between some of your choices, so a budget or letting us know the price differences will help us make a recommendation.

PH sounds good based on your age and the fact that you are on a budget. You will love the location.

You don't say when you're going, so can't tell if things like a pool are a factor.

You've got a mixed list of 2- and 3-star properties, on that list, I'd pick MGM and upgrade to a Bungalow or Celebrity Spa suite if possible.

MGM is big. Really big. The lobby is bigger than some hotels I've stayed in. The entryway is likewise huge, and shiny. To me, that makes a great WOW first impression. The casino is huge, the pool area is the best of those you listed. There's a great variety of restaurants on-site. You're across the street from NYNY, another "only in Las Vegas" property. You're towards the south end of the Strip, but it's not far to PH, Paris, Bellagio, Caesars heading north.

Have a great trip!

Of your list, my choice would be MGM, but I'm not in my mid-20s, so PH is probably better for you.

Actually we are trying to book something for leaving next wed come back monday 5 nights. we like to drink and have fun but no douchebags LOL and no obnoxious hangover 3 stuff LOL again. pool is good will maybe use it a few mornings. we are so excited about going to vegas the first time and i have no idea what to expect. my bf who has been to vegas many times recommended mgm and then said maybe its way to far down and they said you can feel stuck there. so i dont know what to think of that since ive never been. mgm looked like the biggest most vegas-ish property. ph struck me as a little tacky???? ph towers looked nice but looked way off the strip and no snap to it?

flamingo looks sketchy and maybe like a hooker hang out? LOL

bills ip harrahs just looked horrible to me but im throwing them out there bc they are cheap but seriously....???!?!?

monte carlo just seemed ok nothing special

i would think my group needs 2 rooms and i also think we are looking for the entire property to be like just oh my gosh when we pull up ya know

Planet Hollywood and towers, great location in the heart of all the action, pool is so,so.

MGM decent hotel but on the south side of the strip, great pool but you have to careful with what rooms you get.

Flamingo crap hotel I dont recommend, great location, decent pool

Harrahs low end hotel, worst pool in vegas, great location.

Bills, please, low end and not much of a hotel, no pool.

Monte, decent hotel, decent rooms, decent pool, south end of strip.

IP low end hotel, not much of a pool, great location.

oh and as far as prices go -----ph is the highest and barely matches our budget, then towers, then mgm cheapest. which gives the best vegas experience as your homes base? is there any rooms at mgm that have views? they dont have any suites open??? thats weird.
