    Heading back to Vegas in September and stopping at the Monte Carlo. 3 guys in one room so space is going to be tight. We have booked the cheapest room as we do not intend on spending much time there but we are in Vegas for 7 nights so wondered if there were any tips or suggestions as to what room to ask for with the $20 sandwich ??

    Don't bother...your chances are slim to none.

    7 days will make it a bit challenging... but I have had success with the sandwich trick at MC... From the cheapo room up to the spa suite. All you can do is ask, worst they can do is say no.

    Making sure there are two queen beds will be your biggest problem. Most of the upgraded rooms in all the hotels typically have one king in them. Your best chance is a good view/high floor. Let us know!

    At the MC they only have 2 beds in a room in the standard rooms. View or high floor may be an upgrade depending on what you booked. The suites will have a small sofa and a king bed.

    Thanks for the info - sounds like its the spa suite or bust. The two beds are a must although we could survive with a king and a sofa. Will give it a go - what's the worst that could happen. Thanks again.

    I think you'll be happier in the basic room with 2 queen beds than in a suite with 1 king.

    I would get a Monaco Suite if I were you. I stayed in one on a solo trip last September and liked it. It has one king bed and a sofa in front of the bed.

    Monaco Suites also have two bathrooms and a mini-fridge.

    Room service was excellent, the room was very clean when I returned, and you can't beat the food court. My room was on the sixth floor within 30 feet from the elevators (lifts) to our British friends and 20 feet from the ice machine (free ice to keep the drinks and booze cold).

    I had a strip veiw but as you can imagine, not much to see because of the low floor.

    Make sure to talk to room service and ask her to leave bag fulls of goodies like soaps, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, bath bars, sewing kits, etc...

    Just tip her well...maybe 10 to 15 bucks everyday and tell her you guys are going to mail all of this stuff home.

    If you have lots of goodies, take a car (rental or cab, preferably rental) to Sunset Road and turn left at the light. Drive a few miles and the US Post office will be on your right. Then, ship it home. Don't try to take all those liquids on the plane.

    Have a great trip! I hope to be there in October.

    Why would you not bother? Is taking 2 seconds to ask a question and having the possibility of them saying no to much to handle for you?
