Just booked my first stay at Mandarin Oriental for a Vegas visit in a few weeks. Never stayed there before and not sure exactly what to expect. I booked a strip view room under their free night offer. What kind of views does the hotel have and what should I ask for to get the best view? My last Vegas trip was at a wraparound suite at Cosmo with an east & south strip view - half way up on the east tower and it was amazing. I probably shouldn't expect anything as awesome but it seems like there are many different types of strip views available at MO and just wanted to make sure I asked for the best kind since we actually do spend a decent amount of time in the room while in Vegas. What's their fitness center like? I mostly do free weights. I'm fine with machines but was hoping they have a decent selection since I noticed many hotel fitness center focus on cardio equipment and may have limited (if any) weights options. Also, I usually ask for complimentary upgrades depending on the resort. Any tips / advice for MO? If there are paid upgrades, do they typically offer those and what's worth upgrading to and how much do they usually ask? And finally, I'm not a big gambler but I like being able to go downstairs and have a casino right there. I heard that Aria or Monte Carlo are about a 5 minute walk away. Any thoughts on distance? I've stayed at TheHotel and Four Seasons before which are non gaming but that kinda doesn't count since as soon as you walk outside the lobby you're already right at the Mandalay Bay casino. Thanks in advance for any tips or advice!
