    Staying soon at the mirage. I am staying for 5 days but have 3 separate bookings:
    First night in a regular room which I got from a Mlife booking.
    Nights 2-4: an upgraded view room booked from their regular reservation desk. (The promo with the $75 resort credit)
    Night 5: A myVegas reward room

    So I received an offer for a tower king upgrade at $20 for the first night, which I took. So now the first night is a tower king, the next 3 are "view" rooms while the last night is a plain room (all king)

    What are the chances that they will stick me in the same tower king room for all nights without doing any sandwich tricks? (Although that has always been working for me). I really don't want to change rooms twice. Ay similar experience from others?

    They will probably want the extra $20/night but given that, I'd say your chances would be very good. Just express your desire at check-in. Tower Deluxe room is well worth it, the bathroom is much larger w/ a seperate shower and double sinks where the regular room will have a tub/shoer combo and 1 sink. Plus you have dedicated elevators for the 25th & 26th floor where those rooms are.

    Ask for a room on the west wing, facing south. Great veiw of the pool area during the day and the strip looking south at night.

    Thanks for the response. Yes, I am familiar with the tower deluxe rooms and have obtained them twice using the sandwich trick. Last November, such tower deluxe rooms weren't available, but I still got a nice 23rd floor pool facing view. Even the standard rooms are nice, but I like the separate shower though.. Since my 2nd reservation is for a "View" room, I was also offered an upgrade to Tower King, but at $15, this time. The strangest thing is that they offered just one night, which my reservation is for 3 nights.

    BTW, the 2 tower deluxe floors are 24 & 25. The other ones are A-E

    Just wanted to provide closure to this thread. Checked in Sept 1st. First reservation, I got the upgrade to tower Deluxe for first night and last. The middle 3 nights had the regular room with "view upgrade" part of promo MIREOY13EB.

    Checked in around 1pm without doing any $20 trick. Was offered the Tower King room, but facing the mountain. I could get the room facing the pool, but would need to wait 3-4 hours. I decided to take the mountain room which faced north towards the downtown/Trump/TI. Was told I could keep the same room for the entire stay.

    Going back in Jan 2014, for CES, but at Harrah's this time (since Mirage is $400+ night)!

    Awesome! I have a room booked at harrah's during CES as well! Also managed to get a mgm room through my mlife account online during ces week, which was weird because when I called vip, they said that week was blacked out, but I was able to do it online:)

    The only difference between Tower and regular is the size of the bathroom. For a couple, you would really need the Tower.

    Use caution about the "view" rooms. Make sure you ask for a south facing or pool view. The Strip view gives you a grand view of Casino Royale and the Linq construction.

    The other difference is that 24/25 floors tend to be more mature and quieter floors. Twenty something's who want to crash 3 or 4 to a room need 2 beds. Tower king rooms have just one king bed. Each time I stayed in those rooms, it's always been quiet, even during busy times such labour day.
