    Hey all was wondering if anyone had any recommendations at the Mirage for rooms. The wife and I are staying at MGM next month but we have started to receive generous offers from The Mirage so I need to do a little recon with the help of VMB. This may influence future trips simply due to the combo of comp offers and imho location of Mirage.

    I know the "whats better" question gets asked a lot so....


    If you had a choice of a Strip view resort king, or a Mirage Suite which would you choose and why? Does anyone know if the views/floors from some of these come with a better view than others?

    Thanks in advance

    Try for a Tower Room or even better the Tower 1 Bedroom Suite. I've stayed in both. The only challenge with those rooms are that you look through the 'Love' banner out the window. At night its a very good view.

    We stay at Mirage for several reasons; mainly because we get great comps there and have a great Slot Host, but, like you, location on the strip is important to us based on proximity to specific casinos we like to walk to.
    We have stayed in a Resort Tower King (floors 25/26 I think), a Mirage Suite (1 Bedroom w 2 full baths), and a Tower Suite with living/dining room and separate bedroom/bath/closet/ dressing room (floors 26,27,28) and the views are generally good to great on all of these floors, with the caveat of the previous poster regarding the "Love" Banner providing a 'filtered' view (I believe those are floors 25 & 26).
    The Resort Tower King Rooms are a little larger than a Resort King, and have a larger bath with tub and walk in shower. Note: (Resort King / Resort Queen have combination tub/shower only and a smaller bathroom). Floors 2-24 - better views on higher floors.

    Depending on the type of view you prefer: Volcano view, Strip view, Pool view, Mountain view, etc - be sure to ask for the specific view that you are interested in. (The wings are North, South, East, and West - but views vary-so be sure to specify the exact view you want!

    To answer the rest of your question, choice of room/suite/view and why:
    In the early days, we always wanted the best view of the Volcano whether it was a King Room or a suite; then we liked the strip views at night of the Venetian, Harrah's, Caesars which are superb from the higher floors and certain room/suites..
    Now, as we are older, but not necessarily wiser, we prefer something nearer an elevator and the view is secondary, luckily we mostly stay in a Tower Suite so we have plenty of windows with views.
    The folks at Mirage are usually very helpful in making sure you get the view you want. Or ask to be assigned a Slot Host and he/she will help you get the room you want.
    If you and your wife decide to stay at Mirage, I hope and believe you will enjoy your stay there! BTW - the Mirage Pool is nice! And LOVE is still our favorite show in Vegas...

    Geogran, you seem like a mirage pro. I just asked this question somewhere else here but i think you could really help me.
    Do you know if there are tower suites in the south or north tower that are facing the strip/volcano? In videos and pictures i always see them located in the west tower.

    In terms of views, I've been very happy with the Volcano View rooms in the North Tower. I've stayed in Resort Tower (formerly Tower Deluxe) room 24082 which was near the end of the hall and gave a great view of the east side of the strip. I also stayed in Resort King room 22062, about halfway down the hall, which didn't have as much of a strip view. I think the Resort Tower rooms have the same overall size as the Resort Rooms, but with some of the bedroom area square footage shifted to make a bigger bathroom.

    Thank you again

    Hello ex507,

    I'm the worst at remembering the guest room layouts and I misspoke earlier(no N, S, E, W) - there are only 3 'wings' in the shape of a sideways Y - I THINK called north, south, west but don't quote me...and I can barely remember rooms from trip to trip but my DH has better memory and sense of direction so here goes:
    tower suite with view of volcano- 27044, 27021, 28044, 28017 based on our memory..I can't remember what suite we stayed in last time and I was stone cold sober :) but it was near the elevator :)
    tower king room volcano- 24080. And another poster mentioned 24082 and that is also a good volcano view.
    Some of the south wing rooms have pool view and partial Caesars view as we'll.

    BTW - here is a website that will show you every room and it's physical location at the mirage and shows perfectly the 'Y' and it's positioning relative to the strip, pool, volcano , etc.
    Go to: www.room77.com. ( sorry I wasn't able to cut and paste the entire URL :( )
    Then under the 77 logo type in: mirage resort, Las Vegas , nv
    It will ask you to enter dates, do this and mirage pops up. Then look below the box " get deal" and you will see 'View floor plan', click this and you will be able to see the description and physical location of every room..and then decide which view and rooms fit your preferences.

    Hope u find the room for you!!!!

    Interesting info.

    We've been going to Vegas for the past 20 years - averaging maybe 2 trips annually - but have never stayed at the Mirage.

    Several weeks ago I booked a King bed Strip view room, which was something of a minor upgrade. The wife & I have stayed at a lot of the mid-range hotels (Bally's, Paris, Mandalay Bay, NYNY, MGM, & Luxor), better joints such as the Bellagio, TheHotel, & Venetian, lower end places like the Barbary Coast (which we really liked) & Frontier, and more recently the hoity-toity joints.... Wynn, Encore, & Cosmo. Did the $20 "trick" at several of the older properties years ago and occasionally wound up in small suites which were pretty nice.

    Having said all that, would it behoove me to try for a free upgrade at the Mirage for our upcoming 4 night stay over Halloween weekend? Am paying $682 (including taxes & the rip-off resort fee) for all 4 nights. We are very low rollers who don't get comped a stick of gum, but that doesn't bother me.

    BTW - My 1st trip to Vegas was in 1957 with my family (was 13 at the time). We stayed in the Sahara in a couple pool view rooms. The place was then not much more than an overgrown 2-story motel with a casino attached. Ate at the Flamingo Smorgasbord - Victor Borgia was playing their showroom, I believe, and Sinatra was doing a cheap lounge show at the Frontier.

    Hi theghost!
    Not an expert but a fan of Mirage! And yes we love "Love" - we were lucky enough to be there for the premier in 2006 - saw Paul McCartney and so many celebrities going thru the red carpet/rope area - a real thrill. We can't count the number of times we've seen Love, and never tire of it! IMO one of the best Cirque de Soleil shows..
    Best of luck to you and your wife on your future trips to Vegas!

    The Lanai suites are the best. Treat yourself.

    We are booked there October 29th for 4 nights (arrive Wednesday, depart Sunday) - Strip view room - total of $681.84 including taxes & "resort fee". Pretty pricey, IMO, but it is Halloween weekend if that means anything.

    There is a rather large convention that next week.
