Me and some friends from my local poker game are heading out jan9-13th to play some poker and watch the nfl playoffs. Im going to bunk by myself and these are two offers I have The Mirage for $348 which includes tax and resort fees, and The Harrahs(and all CET comparable properties) for $172 including tax and resort fees. I saw Mirage rate first, and thought not bad. I stayed there last time, and loved it. But that was 4th of july, and the pool was open. I always found the harrahs to be a super fun casino, and both of them have a great location. Most of the poker tourneys I will play will either be venetian or caesars, and our plans are to watch the NFL games at lagassaes at venitian. My friends are gonna be spread out, some at quad, and i think Mirage also. I loved the Mirage, but, i am heavily leaning towards the Harrahs offer, for half the price, and a slight edge in location(monorail, same side of st as venetian and I love partying at pianobar/carnival court) Anyone have a better argument to change my mind?
