Mirage or NY NY?

All things being equal..which would you pick? We're currently booked on a comp offer with the NY NY for three nights and we do enjoy it, but we've stayed there often. I've been reading some good things about the Mirage and I thought we might see if we can work some magic and slide over there for this next trip.

Mirage has a better location than NY NY IMO. I didn't much care for NY NY though when we stayed there, so I'm kinda of a biased party.

I've stayed at both and I have to say Mirage wins hands down for me. Our first trip to Las Vegas we stayed at NYNY, we had a great view of the Strip but our room was miles away from the elevator which has colored my feelings about NYNY. The rooms are nicer and bigger at Mirage and I like the casino better too.

Mirage was built by Steve Wynn to bring a new level of luxury to Las Vegas. NYNY was built by MGM as an economy hotel option. Both accomplished their intended purpose. Mirage is superior to NYNY in every way.

We've stayed at NYNY several times over the years and I really enjoy it. There are tons of reasons why I like this hotel however in May 2013 we decided to split our stay between NYNY and Mirage. We've never done that before and there are several people on this forum who've done it and had a great time. So we stayed three nights comped at NYNY and two nights at Mirage. The difference is night and day. The rooms at Mirage were nicer, the pool was better and great restaurants. Overall, Mirage is a much nicer hotel. One thing - when I booked the hotel, I booked NYNY first, then called Mirage. When I asked if I had any comps available, I could only get casino rates. Then when she went to book it, I couldn't get casino rates because I had already used my offer at NYNY and with MLife, you can only use one offer per visit.

Now we've just booked another trip to Vegas in November and where are we staying???? NYNY! Mirage may be a nicer hotel but we never felt the personal attention we've come to appreciate at NYNY. It has become really comfortable for us - we know the staff and we've been treated very well there.
