Have a trip planned for November and hoping to get a decent corporate Fall offer, but my MGM the Buzz isn't available on the nights I am going and rates are sky high at many places so decided I better book something now as a back-up in case the offer doesn't come through... Here is where we have stayed before (in order of which we liked best): Delano Mandalay Bay MGM Mirage Luxor We like to walk (and usually take day trips to do 5-8mile hikes), so being a bit further away probably isn't a big deal. I am a gambler (very low-roller) but partner is pretty much not- I usually like to spend a few hours playing slots each day, but nothing too extensive. Haven't stayed in a location without a casino right in the resort- I like being able to get off the elevator and be in the casino, but it sounds like vdara and the sig aren't too bad either. We want a room that feels nice- we usually are in the most basic room at each of the above, so nothing too crazy. We like having some type of fridge for soda (I drink some, partner not at all, so no need to store beer/liquor). And a sitting area other than the bed is important. Also nice to have some type of table/desk to sit at if we decide to eat a meal in the room (wouldn't do any actual cooking though). A view is important to me, however I like to see the mountains- i don't really care about strip views at all. Wifi is a must in the room too. Pool is not important, won't use spa/fitness facilities, and dining doesn't need to be onsite so not really affected by that (though we like to hit up one buffet each trip and Aria is definitely our favorite). Aria is a hotel I have been wanting to stay at, and at $135/night for the ones I am looking at, I might bite the bullet (mgm is $160 and MB is over $200). TBH that is more than I want to pay- Vdara and the Sig are both coming in right around $110 per night. Also more than I really want to pay.. My last 3 trips have been mainly courtesy of myvegas or 1-2 comped nights with 1-2 paid. I already have my flight booked from the SW sale 2 months ago, but I am considering postponing to dates where I can use my offer even it its going to cost more to fly there (thought the SW sale was the best price I have seen in years so it is hard to give that up...). I like that I can get a larger room at the Sig or Vdara for similar price to Aria, and I like that they have a fridge- but what pros and cons do you think there are for the three? The balcony suites at the sig also sound cool, but not sure if I would actually utilize it much. Also do you know if myvegas freeplay from Aria or Mgm can be used at Vdara or the Signature respectively? Even if it cannot, staying at either of those does count as being at an mlife hotel so stay required rewards could be used, correct? I believe if I book through mlife I can cancel my reservation- can anyone confirm that? Thanks!
