Good morning all! Long time reader of the board but first time poster. I am a 33 year old married father of one who is about to make my ninth trip out to Vegas since 2010. Wanted opinions and thoughts on my mid July trip that my wife and I are going on. For a little background, my prior trips have included Mandalay Bay which we loved, just too far south for our liking. Did a guys trip at THEhotel (ditto). We have stayed at Paris which was a great location but least favorite of the places we have stayed. I did a great guys trip with my three childhood friends in a two bedroom a Tower Suite at Mirage which was great. My last three trips were Bellagio and then Palazzo twice. Loved eveything about Palazzo and as great as Bellagio is, could not compete with Palazzo IMO. We booked this trip in part because I had two free united flights but also because Mirage offered us a great deal that was $290 all in (taxes and resort fees included in this) from Saturday to Tuesday. I asked the Cosmo per a prior thread if they can do anything in terms of matching and they gave me a reduced rate that would come out to around $550 all in. We like to play slots, roulette, and I plan to spend 8-10 hours playing poker. The pool is a key factor in where we stay and plan to spend 3 hours a day or so drinking at the pool. I loved the Mirage pool on our last trip and prefer the more quiet pool vibe when with my wife (more her preference). I thought the deal provided to us was good and a nice room is important to me. When I asked my wife she seemed to want to stay at Mirage as she didn't really "like Cosmo much" when we spent an hour walking through a few years back. I reminded her it was a small sample and much different when staying there. She also has concerns about the pool situation. After our last two trips being to Bellagio and Palazzo I am concerned we check into a Tower room at Mirage and she is underwhelmed. Any thoughts on the matter? Advice? And is the Cosmo worth an extra $250 over three nights? Thanks!
