Originally we were planning to stay in a 2 bedroom penthouse Sky Suite. After some searching I have come across the 2 bedroom penthouse at the Mirage, which looks like we would save about $2,500. It looks like the penthouses have been remodeled and the casino is in the process. We are planning to go next September for our 5 year wedding anniversary so I want to make sure we make the right decision regarding the hotel. I know the Sky Suites have great reviews, come with private Sky pool and also a lounge. I'm not finding much info on the Suite life offerings that you get with Mirage. With $2,500 not being a small chunk of change I was hoping to get some inside information. What means the most to us is the location, view (best strip view possible), pool atmosphere and the VIP lounge offerings. We will be driving into Vegas following a few day excursion down the California coast. We will be spending 5 nights in Vegas and then flying home. It will be my husband, myself and my parents. So ages range from late 20's into mid 50's. Not big table players but like to play the slots for a bit. Restaurants are also not an important factor as I have already chosen where we will be dining. Show wise it is a toss up between "O" and Mystere. Other than that our plan is to walk the strip and venture from hotel to hotel and just take in the sights. We have only been to Vegas one other time and we stayed in a 2 bedroom fountain view room at the Bellagio. After having that view we are just finding it hard to make up our minds. I have also taken Cosmo into consideration but the bathroom situation and bad reviews of housekeeping have been a determining factor of not staying there. So everyone what info can you give me on the Mirage? Thanks in advance everyone! Having found this sight has been extremely beneficial in planning our trip.
