Cant decide on hotel. Help please.

We have booked with another couple for Feb 14 for 5 nights at the Mirage. We are staying for another 3 nights and want to experience another hotel. Was looking at Treasure Island, Harrahs or Flamingo as we thought it would be no hardship to walk to these (with Luggage). OH was looking at NYNY , Monte Carlo and Luxor. Would a cab take us there or would they consider it not worth their while as it would be a short ride. How much would it cost in a cab?????

Monte Carlo and Treasure Island are your best options from your second list. I would chose Monte Carlo as the location is what puts it over the top, with the easy access to Aria and Tram to Bellagio and Cosmo. I would always move hotels with luggage even if its 1 property away. Mirage to Monte Carlo taxi is about 10 dollars, well worth it.

A cab will take you anywhere you want. I have literally taken them to the hotel next door more than once. Mirage to Monte Carlo would be less than $10, NYNY and Luxor a few $ more.

I would not switch from Mirage to TI, as they are very similar hotels. Luxor and NYNY are an awful big drop down from Mirage. Monte Carlo would be the better choice.

If you moved from Mirage to TI, all you have to do is jump on the free tram at Mirage and it takes you to the second floor at TI. IMO TI is a step up from your other choices, but a step down from Mirage.

Please don't consider your other hotel choice on what will likely be a $10 cab ride! Agree with Ktinca that Monte Carlo would be the best choice from what you listed. However, that is still going to be a bit of a step down from Mirage. You might even look into prices at Mandalay Bay which would give you another area of the strip to explore. Also, MGM is in that area too. We have taken taxis moving from one hotel to another on the strip numerous times. Not a problem!

For me, moving from Mirage to Flamingo or Harrahs wouldn't work. That would mean the room on the second part of your stay would be a big step down. Monte Carlo is a minor step down from Mirage but not as much as your other two choices. If your budget would allow, I'd suggest Aria for your final two nights. Or Mandalay Bay. The cab ride is really going to be insignificant - especially for two couples.

Thanks guys. The last few nights it is just us as the other couple are leaving earlier than us. Will check out all of your suggestions. Is it a Tram or monorail that link mirage with Treasure Island. If so is the monorail that links Mandalay Bay, Luxor and Excalibur free of charge also.

Mirage and TI are linked by what looks like an oldfashioned streetcar but actually is a more hightech type of vehicle (unmanned). Nice though. And yes, MB-Luxor-Excalibur have a free monorail.

Have fun,

"Is it a Tram or monorail that link mirage with Treasure Island." - It's a small free tram that runs between Mirage & TI.

"If so is the monorail that links Mandalay Bay, Luxor and Excalibur free of charge also." - free.
