    My co-workers and I just booked our rooms at the Mirage for 2 nights of our 4 day "business" trip. Never stayed there before but something about the rooms & the property had been calling me, PLUS we got the rooms at below our per diem rate. (More to follow on hotel #2).

    Anything we need to know about the Mirage? Restaurants? (will make a 3rd trip to Samba's Brazilian Steakhouse). Table limits? Drink service? Lounges/bars? Room upgrades during the week?

    Of course Casino Royale is right across the street, so we'll hit that up as well.

    Since you mentioned Samba, on our trip the first week of November if you ate at the Cravings buffet, they gave you a buy one get one free coupon for Samba. :beer:

    Really like Mirage. As far as restaurants, Stack is among my favorite places in Vegas; I try to eat at least one dinner there every trip. Rhumbar is a great lounge for sitting and have a couple nice cocktails outside, and the Abbey Road bar outside Revolution is good for people-watching.

    The casino is fun and table limits are moderate, usually $10 on most games. Craps scene can be a bit hit-or-miss, though, hence why I haven't been staying there lately.

    Try and go to Kokomo's before it closes, if it hasn't already. Great steakhouse.
    Just a great hotel all around. Drink service in the craps pit was stellar the last time I was there (thanks Morla).

    How was Craving's buffet? I heard (read) that there aren't a lot of late-night dining choices in the Mirage.

    I really liked Cravings for breakfast/brunch. It doesn't get a lot of love compared to some higher end places, but it's in my personal top 3 for that time of day (I acknowledge that I'm probably over-rating it, but that was just my experience.) I've never eaten there for dinner.

    Sarah, noticed your moniker. Will you be at Champions Week?

    Mirage is my favorite place to stay. Now, if they would offer me more than just one free night....lol

    The deli is awesome, especially late night. Last year, I was playing VP at the bar, enjoying my many Corona's when my dad walked up and said he wanted to go to the deli for pie. I about fell off my chair laughing. Really? Pie at midnight? So we did. Hubbie and I couldn't even finish one order of the Rueben and the banana creme pie? OMG! Nothing like drinking beer all day, having pie and a glass of milk at midnight and going back to playing VP and drinking beer after. Only in Vegas!

    Last month when I was there, I had free passes for the buffet. I hate buffets, but we thought, what the heck it's free. It is one of the better buffets for breakfast and lunch. I would go back to that one.

    Mirage just has a fun vibe to it, thus, my favorite place.

    You know about the resort fee right?

    Alas, let me say that The Mirage will see me again in 2013. Very nice hotel, very nice vibe, and had a decent run at the tables.

    Best thing about The Mirage rooms? The BEDS, hands down. I MUST buy one of those.

    I have a long overdue trip report to file, and in it The Mirage gets much love from me.

    Ha. We just bought a new bed for our home, and we did everything we could to find the equivalent retail version of the Sealy that we like so much at the Mirage. We ended up getting our new mattress set at Macy's, and we're happy with it, but we seriously contemplated just buying it directly from Mirage itself:

    My wife and I stayed at the Mirage this past June for a friend's wedding and we had a blast. We enjoyed Stack and had a great time at Rhumbar with all of our friends. The pool was our favorite part. The drinks, as expected, are super expensive. Sports book is awesome, too. I'll be staying at the Mirage again when I go back this coming May.

    My dad and I had both the mirage and bellagio booked for my birthday last year. I ended up in the mirage room. I loved it. It's a really solid and non expensive hotel and I really like the casino in it.

    I am still debating on Mirage Penthouse room and the Cosmo Wrap Around Fountain!

    I am undecided!

    I guess I'll have to be the voice of dissent on this one...

    we were there last summer for 2 nights in the middle of the week. I found the customer service to be awful (asked very politely for a king bed on a higher floor close to the elevator, got a room with two queens on the first floor of rooms in the room furthest from the elevator), the buffet was neither good nor bad, and my girlfriend had a terrible experience in the salon when she went to buy some makeup, and when she asked for help, the 2 girls working there just looked at here, then resumed their conversation, somewhat loudly, regarding what bellboy they wanted to....engage in fun times with.
    the vibe at the casino seemed kind of non-existent, the cocktail waitress, when she finally showed up at the craps table, spilled my drink down my arm and onto my lap.

    having said that, we're going back to the Mirage in March, but only b/c I've got 3 nights comped in a Tower Suite.
