    Hi,

    I have been looking at different suites to stay in for me and the wife on our anniversary (10 yrs) trip at the end of the year.

    I am not a high roller at all - ($25 per hand * 4 Hours/day) - but would really like to experience a penthouse Suite - obviously I am never going to get comped one so am more than willing to pay!

    So has anyone paid for a Penthouse at the Mirage quoted as "The Suite Life" on the website and what were your thoughts/experience & did it give you any access to a VIP Lounge?

    Or does anyone have any other suggestion as to good "Suite Deals" that include some little extras (VIP Check-in/ Lounge/ Limo - anything?) - to aid in making this special trip of mine that little bit different from the norm?

    Thank you for your time and info/suggestions you can give,

    All the best,

    MG

    I've paid for a suite before -- not at Mirage, but at MGM -- and it came with very little in the way of extras. Also, it was several years ago, and it was not as high end a suite as you're talking about, so it could be off.

    If you're looking for the very good service and extras, take a look at Hotel 32 in the Monte Carlo. It's actually designed with all of that stuff built into the price. There's a lounge with food and beverages, they send a limo for you, a bellman meets you at the door, and you actually check in in your room/suite with a 'suite assistant.' And the views are awesome from the 32nd floor.

    If you have your heart set on Mirage, call them and ask them what comes with it. You can always book your own limo service through another vendor (which will be just as good, and cost less.)

    Thanks Mike for your reply - I will have a look at Hotel32.

    I didn't have my heart set on the Mirage the price just seemed to be in the range that I was looking for with added perks - so am open to anything within the same price range.

    The Penthouse (and very similar Tower) Suites at the Mirage are excellent suites. They are very big, can be had in two bedroom configurations if needed, have great bathrooms (big jetted tub and a bidet), and a big living room/dining room. There is also a wet bar with ice maker and fridge. You also have access to the separate elevator core for only the top floors which is another good perk. The price for these rooms can be reasonable. With the Penthouse you do get the VIP lounge check-in which is a small room with some light snacks and beverages available throughout the day. I recommend these if you are looking for something nicer (and bigger) than standard without breaking the bank. (In my opinion, the Tower Suite is just as nice as the Penthouse Suite, virtually identical, and less expensive although I believe you do give up the VIP perks.)

    We normally stay in a comped Tower Suite but got booked into a Penthouse for the first time over Labor Day weekend. The rooms were identical except for slightly different decorative touches and fully electric curtain controls in the Penthouse. Both suites are great, but I personally would not pay extra to get a "Penthouse."

    If you arrange your trip through a Mirage host, I believe you can take advantage of the VIP check-in lounge and grab a coffee or soda there regardless of which room you are in, including a deluxe room. But I realize that you seem to be making these arrangements on your own (though a cold call to the Mirage VIP services might be worth a try). And, honestly, if you do end up paying for either a Tower or Penthouse suite during your stay, I don't think anyone on staff in the VIP area would hesitate to assist you regardless of whether you are "officially" considered an invited guest. Unlike at CET properties, there's no one checking an ID before you can enter the VIP area.
