Mirage, MGM Grand, or Treasure Island?

First trip to Vegas with another couple (30 years old)...we have it narrowed down to Mirage, TI and MGM grand. We are looking for a great pool, nice rooms and great atmosphere...

Appreciate any recommendations!!

Mirage is a great place for a first trip.

You would rule out TI based on the pool. Both MGM and Mirage have much better pools. Mirage has a great pool, but it is also the most crowded one in Las Vegas. In April or early May or October it isn't too bad on weekdays, any other time expect chairs jammed together and wall-to-wall people. MGM has a larger pool area and is much less crowded.

Mirage is considered the better hotel, but the rooms at MGM are being renovated. So if you are going in Summer I would recommend MGM, if in the fall Mirage.

All are nice. MGM is large like a small city, lots of walking and easy to get lost in. Nice pool area. TI is "our home", small easy to get around in casino, nice rooms with fridges in all rooms, good location not a great pool area, on the small side. Mirage is a step above TI, nice property, nice pool, nice rooms but smaller bathrooms, good location with free tram to TI. Can't go wrong with any of them. Your budget may help with your decsion.

On our last trip we chose TI over Mirage because of the price. For our next trip we're staying at MGM Grand because of the pools. And its cheaper than Mirage. I still really want to stay at Mirage.

You cant go wrong with any of them, i was in the samer position as you and i choose TI.

Purlely because We stayed at Luxor last trip and exhausted that end of the strip so MGM was out for us, its a big hotel with a large pool area only the location put us off, Mirage looked great the location fab but for us the overcrowded pool and the higher price tag made TI more appealing, TI same location as Mirage right in the heart of it all and although the pool is smaller which bugged me to start with i think i would rather have it smaller than no room to move with people :) and of course it was that bit cheaper ....more vegas spending pennies lol

We stayed in both the MGM and Mirage on our first trip and in our opinion we couldn't of picked better hotels. The location for us was great, both at different ends of the strip. Have you considered staying at 2 hotels on your first trip? It's not everyone's cup of tea, just perhaps an option if you are torn between 2 different hotels!

Whatever you decide, i'm sure you won't be disapointed!

Have a great time!

Just curious Preston, how come you think the MGM is a slighty better hotel?
