First stay at the Mirage

I am going to be staying at the Mirage on Sunday night for one night, thanks to myVegas. This will be my first stay there, and I have some questions. I know that I can use the search function and MAYBE get answers to my questions, but I am too lazy. (Plus the search function stinks)

I am booked in a Resort Room, which I am assuming is the basic room. I am not concerned with having a view, but would like a somewhat quiet room with a minimal walk from room to casino. Is there a specific tower/floor/area I should request?

Also, is there an mLife/invited guest checkin line? I know that the Luxor and NYNY have one, but wanted to know if the Mirage has one as well. If so, is it clearly marked?

I do not plan on using the pool at all, since I am mainly focusing on playing blackjack this trip. Any other Mirage-related tips or tricks that might be helpful would be greatly appreciated.

Can't really speak to which room is closer to the casino, since I've only stayed their once (back in March), but they do have a Gold Level and above check in line for MLife.

The elevator banks are all in a central area. There is easy access to the casino from the elevators.

The hallways are very long. Request a room far from the elevators and it will be more quiet, but more walking will be involved.

I have not had problems with noise, but you can hear people in the hallway if there talking kinda loud.

Maybe ask for a low-volume floor upon check in.

My advice is to not eat at Carnegie Deli. Over priced and food is not great. They get by mostly on their name.

BTW, CWService is pretty good!

Have a great time!!! I love Mirage :)

Request a room close to the elevators if you don't want a long walk but since the elevators are all central, you will get the noise.

Get ready for THE MOST comfortable bed on the face of the earth!!!!! It is pure bliss. I love the Mirage. BLT Burger is great for lunch. I agree to skip Carnegie Deli.

It's my favorite place to stay/play. I'll often turn down free rooms at Paris and pay to stay at Mirage. My only complaint is that they have so many loyal black chip table players, it s really hard for green chip players to get any love. :)

The casino is really dark. Some hate it...but I think it sets the mood perfectly.

The beds are great and rooms were re-done four or five years ago, so they look relatively fresh. I always prefer a higher floor...but that's strictly a personal preference.

BLT burger is good .

Fruity drinks at the Rhumbar - yum.

Stack is good for a drink or good meal.

As others have mentioned, all the elevators are in a central location so no matter which of the three towers you are in, the elevators dump at the same spot, just a few steps away from the casino.

The resort room is just a regular room.

Rhumbar is great for a drink and people watching.

There is an Invited Guest line and is clearly marked.

I'll be interested to hear you comments after the stay. My guess is that you'll want to stay there your next trip.

Enjoy.

Invited guest check- in is the very first part of the counter when you arrive. Go in the doors, turn right and you'll see that line.

I've stayed at the Mirage four times in the last five years and agree with most above. The Carnegie Deli is good, depending on your expectations. Large portions, good fresh bread on the sandwiches, fast service, fairly reasonable prices. The coffee shop gets VERY VERY crowded in the morning and it may be faster to eat at Carnegie Deli at that time, believe it or not. CW service is above average for Strip locations, especially if you give the CW a tip (I do $5) BEFORE she goes for the drink - you will never have an empty glass after that! The beds are so wonderful that we ordered one when we got home and it's heaven every night! Yes, the Mirage is showing its age in some ways but we have always found the staff to be friendly and professional. Unfortunately they didn't send me any offers this year so we'll be trying Paris for the first time in about two weeks but would go back to the Mirage anytime. Enjoy!

Excellent answers and tips. Thank you all very much! Looking forward to finally staying at the Mirage, even if it is for only one night. I have played here many times and love the casino. I will definitely be writing a TR when I return home.

Last time we stayed at the Mirage we had a standard room on the 12th floor, view was of roof tops toward the back of the buildings. We could hear a train whistle at 4:30am. So try to get a room on the front part of the building toward the Strip and not I15.
