Visited on 1/31-2/4. Planned on staying all 4 nts at the Monte Carlo at a rate of $59/nt. Tried the $20 trick at the desk to get an upgrade, but was told an upgrade cost $40 for the Monaco Suite and $80 for the Spa Suite. Tried again, by saying ���is there any chance you can give me a better rate?��� Her response was to check with the manager, so I put my $20 away. I did get offered a Monaco Suite for only $30 more per night, so we got that. The room was nice and big with 1 full and 1 half bath. The mattress was a pillow top and was very comfortable!! The view was ok facing Bellagio and Paris but not high enough to see the fountain show. To all of those who commented that the plumbing is noisy, you were very right!! Constant sound of running water from the room next to and above us, and we could hear the elevator ���bing��� every time it stopped on the floor. Changed rooms but it wasn���t any better. Management said they couldn���t do anything else for us because all suites are located right off the elevator and have connecting doors to a standard room, so we checked out the next morning and went to the Venetian for the last 2 nights of our trip. Very nice room with large marble bathroom. Not as comfy of a bed, but loved the sunken living room. We didn���t get a great view but that was ok because it was completely quiet. Won some money at the Venetian on the Wheel of Fortune slots! Also ate at Noodle Asia ... yummy!
Saw KA and absolutely loved it! Mystere is still my favorite, but I liked KA better than O. We had great seats in the front row of Sec 203, which is right behind the main walkway into the theatre. Also had free tickets to Jubilee, which I thought was horrible. Glad I didn���t pay to see it! Also went to the Comedy Stop at the Trop and had a great time, as usual. I didn���t find any 2-for-1 coupons in the magazines, but did manage to find a $5 off coupon instead.
Rented a car one day and drove out to Valley of Fire. It was beautiful, and worth the hour trip out there.
All in all, it was another great trip to Vegas! Can���t wait to go back later this year. Thanks to everyone on the forum for all the great advice. It was very helpful!
