Vegas Dilemma

Was wondering what you guys and gals would do in this situation. I got a deal at luxor 2 nights free for a 4 night stay In a tower deluxe room. I already had a reservation at mgm grand for $444 for 4 nights with 2 free tickets to jabbawockeez. I cancelled the mgm grand and stuck with paying $200 for 4 nights at luxor. I am regretting this now feeling as though I am downgrading and that was the wrong decision. What do you think? Is double the price worth that experience at mgm grand opposed to luxor? The room at mgm was deluxe king view room.

It's a toss,IMO.

MGM better location/property

Luxor less expensive

I have also stayed at both. I agree a toss either way.

I figured. I have a problem picking hotels and change my mind hundreds of times. My fiancé wants to shoot me.

This is a basic decision we all make constantly. Is it worth spending the money to stay at a better hotel, or should we save money and make this an economy trip. We do both, depending on what kind of experience we want this trip.

If I was solo. and those were my two choices, I would save the money and stay at Luxor. With my wife I would probably spend the extra and stay at MGM.

That was the problem...didn't listen to the fiance. Money no longer becomes the issue. How's that for a first time post?

I probably would have stayed with MGM since it's a nicer hotel and the Jabbawockeez tix add value.

That said, I stayed at MGM a month ago and had many problems, including: checked-in to an occupied room, leaky shower, broken panel, and charged for a myVegas night (had to dispute the charge with CC after calling MGM 3 weeks ago). I got a free KA ticket and it was cheaper than NYNY, my first choice for the trip.

That said, you will have a clean room and a bed, and you can probably get a Jabbawockeez offer at Luxor (2-for-1?), and have at least an extra $100 to spend. Probably a no-lose situation.

This is just me, I would've stayed at MGM. Once at MGM, I would have tried to upgrade there.

Luxor is "meh", yes cheaper but also less to do there. It does have Flight, LAX and Cathouse though all of which are pretty fun.

My priority as I'm older now, is nicer room over cost saving. That said, I dont think there's much difference between Luxor's tower rooms vs MGM standard....probably slight edge to MGM. MGM has a bit better spot on the strip though. My first time in Vegas was in a Luxor Tower suite, and I liked being connected to MB and Excalibur. I'd probably never stay at the Luxor or MGM again, but I tend to be nostalgiac about the Luxor.

If you can't cancel Luxor, there is no point belaboring the issue. Put MGM out of your mind. There had to be some reason you wanted to save the money.
