I have a 5 night trip booked for Oct 23rd-28th. The reason for this trip is mainly to attend the Life is Beautiful Festival on 26th/27th which is being held in downtown (exact locations yet to be announced but likely around El Cortez). Here's my dilemma: Currently have a room booked at the Aria. Have stayed there 3 times this year so far, and tbh am a little bored of it and the immediate area. I will be relying on buses and cabs to get to/from downtown. I don't really like the Strip scene at night on a weekend and usually book Sun-Thurs, but the festival is being held on a weekend (hence the Weds-Mon stay). So, I have been looking at staying in downtown instead. I'm getting a 3 day bus pass and would go down to the Strip in the daytime, but I would be able to walk back to my room after the gig at night. The Four Queens is coming up the only downtown property I can change to within the package I have booked (the first and last time booking a package!). I enjoy the casino here, but are the rooms ok? And most importantly - does it feel safe? My other option is to book The Mirage as this is the area of the Strip I enjoy most but have not stayed there before. Some background info: Female, 27, smoker, travelling solo, 13th trip to LV, Mlife Gold member, always stayed on the Strip, enjoys slots and eating cheap but not clubbing! Thank you for reading - any help much appreciated!
