How easy to get car in and out Vallet?

Hi, we will have our car and want to be driving around to a few places during our 2 day stay on the strip , bass pro store, outlets, black bear diner....

Do you phone ahead for your car to be brought up (how long could we be waiting?) or if it would be easier to self park and then just come and go as we please?

We are staying at the Mirage on a Thurs 14 Friday 15 March.

We phoned a half hour ahead at the Mirage last summer. Went down stairs and waited another half an hour in 105 degree heat. Awful valet service.

Have had great experiences with every other Vegas hotel where we've used valet -- Palazzo, Signature, Golden Nugget...

(therefore, I'd self park if I ever stayed at Mirage again.)

You don't phone ahead. At least I've never seen that service.

You shouldn't wait too long but you do obviously have to wait for your car to be collected and brought to you.

Personally, I self-park. You know where the car is, you go to it, you go. But valet parking is a perk that a lot of travellers, particularly in this town, enjoy, so perhaps try it out at the start of the trip and see how you go.

I guess phoning ahead IS a service offered. I happily stand corrected.

Just go down to the valet location, give them your ticket and they bring your car. I have NEVER waited half an hour. More typically five minutes. Give the guy who brings your car a few bucks.

We do both. And yea, unless a concert or something is letting out 5 - 10 min max. Less time than getting to/from self park.

Flamingo is horrific. Monte Carlo is a dream. The rest are all similar from my personal experiences.

I would say thre only times it could be a 10-15 minute wait would be around checkout time (10-noon).

We used valet at MGM and loved it. Just brought our ticket down and waited maybe 10 minutes tops
