    I'm taking my wife to Vegas for our 30th anniversary in December. My question is, which upscale casino has the best rooms for a romantic trip and is this a valid reason for an upgrade? Of course, I plan a nice tip at check-in if I can get a better room.
    Thanks for any tips.

    Hi ScottinTexas! There's another thread very similar to yours that's active right now, I'm sure you've seen by now. I just got back from our 20th wedding anniversary, and we stayed at the Bellagio. We stayed in a 2bdrm Penthouse suite and it was fabulous! Don't know what you had in mind as far as budget though. We were lucky enough to have ours comp'd.

    To be honest, I will probably do an airfare/hotel package, but almost any casino is available for this. I won't be lucky enough to get any of the best rooms in the casino, but I would like to stay somewhere that will be best for spending a little more time in the room versus spending all your time at the tables. A nice bathroom is always a plus when we travel.

    I would tend to stay away from hotel/air packages most times.

    As to what is best...nobody here can answer that at this point. After all, some might be very happy with Luxor and somebody else would only do Wynn.

    If you have checked hotel rate calendars you will see that rates move around CONSIDERABLY depending on exact dates. Same with airfares.

    What is your budget? Where will you play? Where do you dine? What type of activities will you partake?

    We spent our 30th at Encore and really enjoyed it. We just stayed in a standard room, mountain view to avoid club noise.
    For our anniversary dinner we went to Sinatras. I called ahead to let them know it was our anniversary and also the concierge when we changed our time for reservations. When we got there and told them our name the first thing was "happy anniversary"...when we were seated there was a Happy Anniversary card there and everyone who waited on us wished us a "happy anniversary". After dinner they brought us out a complimentary dessert with "happy anniversary" & our last name written on it. It was a special night.
    We were there when we could relax at the pools (good weather at end of April) and that's what we pretty much did all 5 days and the cocktail waitress got to know us and about our anniversary and was great to us and her last day gave us a free drink. Perhaps no big deal but was nice she cared.
    All in all a great stay.
    Where ever you stay, enjoy & Happy Anniversary!":eek:

    Hi ScottinTexas,

    Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary :nworthy:

    My choices for most romantic hotel accommodations would be a tie between Aria Sky Suites one bedroom City-View suite (ours was on the 50th floor and the view was nice), or a Premier Strip View suite at Four Seasons (ours happened to be on the 38th floor, there are only 5 floors (35-39) at the Four Seasons, so the view from all Strip view rooms/suites is pretty consistent).

    If you want something reasonably budget conscious and you really want a nice bathroom, I recommend a spa suite at the MGM. The price isn't ridiculous, and the bathroom is really nice. The room's not bad either.

    Thanks everyone for the responses, and thank you Kelly, for the congratulations! Mike, I have been looking at the Grand, and it looks like what I'm looking for. I also am considering the Cosmopolitan on a friend's recommendation. I will say, I'm looking forward to our trip, as it has been years since we were in Vegas.
