We've been to Las Vegas half a dozen times and stayed at various strip hotels Luxor, LVH, MGM, Mirage, Mandalay Bay, Venetian, Four Seasons. Our favorite has been the Four Seasons and had some great upgrades with the $20 tip trick at LVH and Mandalay Bay. It seems we always end out at one end of the strip or the other. We are looking for a nice pool area, mid strip, casino experience not too far away and a nice room. We are staying during the week in May and I thought I should be able to get some great rates at nicer places. Not finding that much. I have narrowed it down to the Monte Carlo strip view or Signature Suites lower floor strip view studio with balcony. The Signature is through VRBO which I have never done. The renter has all 5 star ratings from over 70 reviewers. I have never rented and am a little gun shy. The prices are comparable. Any thoughts?
