Which hotel if these are our requirements?

All female party of 3 in our 40s

Want a smart hotel on strip (min 4 stars) and since it will be a first time visit for one think we want the full 'Vegas experience' so ruling out non-gaming hotels.

Visiting September and want to use pools but will want quiet, tranquil affair with no booming music.

Will be a Mon-Fri visit so no weekend and we're happy to pay up to $250 dollars per room per night

I would suggest Wynn/ Encore or Palazzo. I also have a soft spot for Bellagio but it gets a lot of people just walking through to see it.

If you are looking for a nice property with a quiet, tranquil pool I agree with damama and recommend Wynn/ Encore.

Haven't stayed at Aria but hopefully will be able to add it to my suggestions after next month. Check Smartervegas for some really good rates for Aria.

True four stars with gaming on the strip limits you to:

Aria

Bellagio

Caesars Palace (Laurel collection rooms only)

Cosmopolitan

Venetian/Palazzo

Wynn/Encore

I can't comment too much on pool scene but I would rule out Cosmopolitan for the experience you want, since it's a party hotel so attracts a louder crowd. Not so bad on weekdays but I think there are better choices. Bellagio common areas get quite busy with non-guest traffic, as does Venetian. This wouldn't affect the pools though, as you need to be a guest to use them. Encore can get a bit loud due to the clubs, although again not as bad during the week.

Aria or Wynn would probably be the quietest overall experience. Both are beautiful hotels. Aria is my preference but Wynn has that certain Vegas wow factor that only Steve Wynn can bring to a property. BUT if you want to stay in one room, I'd recommend the Palazzo Bella suites. Best single room for sharers, as they're over 700 sq ft with a good size living space as well as two beds.

Four Seasons would be another choice that would definitely give you the right experience. It is non-gaming but in the same building as Mandalay Bay with direct access to the casino and also access to all MB amenities including their pools. So you still get the Vegas vibe when you want it, and can retreat to the FS areas when you don't. So it might be one to consider.

NOTE: I haven't looked up September rates on any of the above. But weekdays should be under budget at most (if not all) unless you're travelling in a convention week.

I'd say Aria or the Wynn is what you want. The Wynn is a bit more high class but location is kinda terrible. Aria is much more central. I personally love the Aria.

Jenn66...I have to second the Aria. The hotel is beautiful and they have a great selection of restaurants and your feet with be happy that you chose a central location. The central location will also give you a wider variety of options within close range. As for the Wynn the extra walking is an understatement. To give you an idea it is 3km from the Wynn to MGM Grand.

Yes, Wynn. Maybe consider Paris for location and a pretty pool area (my daughters always liked it there).

I will recommend the Bella Suite (standard room with 2 beds) at Venetian/Palazzo for 3 adults sharing a room. Palazzo pool will have the environment you seek, and the rooms are well-designed for multiple guests with the sunken living area. Also V/P provides more dining options at all price points than Wynn.
