My upcoming trip next month has to be split between two hotels due to random high weekend rates in most of the mid tier hotels. I can actually get Cosmo (due to their 50% off promo) for less than PHo, Paris. Mirage and PHo cost more than Venetian/Palazzo for example..strange occupancy weekend. I am doing my first 2 nights at MGM, and got a great deal for 2 nights in a Madison Ave room at NY NY (free upgrade to the Madison Ave). My last two trips have been at Cosmo. I love it, but I like change and I also enjoy a place that is a little more casual. I have never stayed on the south strip but enjoy hanging out in MGM and NY NY (especially for a winter trip). My issue is that my Sunday flight is at around 730PM. I would pick Cosmo without question if I had an earlier flight but Cosmo has been ultra stingy on late checkouts. I have never gotten beyond the courtesy noon and told it would be essentially rack rate to stay until 6PM (who you crappin' Cosmo?). With NY NY I can do the 3PM late check out for $20, or pay $55 plus tax/resort fee for an extra night to just know I have the room until flight time which is kind of nice. I hate having to leave the room and wander for 6 hours (and no pools to lay around). What do you guys think? Has anyone stayed in the Madison Ave room before? Better than the Park Ave? or would you rather go with Cosmo (about $150 more total for the 2 nights) and give me a tip on how to get a late check out at that place without gambling my life away. I do have Marriott Elite Silver ...but I am not sure if they offer the late check out perk to Silver Elite (maybe just gold/platinum tier?) Thank you for your advice as always VMB world!
