My girlfriend and I are going to Vegas on March 9th for 4 nights, yet we still don't know where we want to stay. We have had Encore booked since we planned the trip a couple months ago, but we continually find ourselves saying "let's just stay at Luxor." A little background: I first traveled to Vegas at age 21 in 2012 after graduating college. At the time, I was a broke college student and didn't know where to stay. My friend and I ultimately settled on Luxor because it was cheap and we liked the pyramid architecture and theme. Being our first trip, we had a blast and couldn't believe that people generally considered Luxor to be a dump. We thought it was the coolest hotel ever. Fast forward 3 years and I have stayed at the Luxor 6 times with no complaints. I've also stayed at Mandalay Bay 2 times in that stretch. For whatever reason, I always enjoy spending time at the Luxor. For this trip, my girlfriend and I want to get away from grad school for spring break and we booked the Encore at their casino rate of $129 a night, as I've only ever given them 15 minutes of play. As the trip date nears, we keep trying to convince ourselves to stay at the Luxor for a variety of reasons including nostalgia, location (we love the south end), and thrift. So, does anybody else have this problem of sticking with what they know when there are clearly better options? What helps you make the decision? How do I leave the home base?!
