    Was thinking about booking the Monte Carlo in mid jan, will this contstruction be a problem as far as detours, mess, noise,? Is it still worth it you think or better look elsewhere this year?

    Aslo whats the weather in vegas like usually in mid jan? I think i read the pools are closed so I assume its chilly

    would luxor be a better choice this time or nyny?

    thanks

    Luxor is only a better choice when comparing it to the Quad(IP).
    MC or NYNY but not Luxor

    I think it's sad that current Hotels, like Monte Carlo, Luxor, Paris, etc. have lost the original look from the mid 90's, when they first opened, to what it is today and beyond.
    You could walk on the Strip from Bellagio to the Boardwalk with the fake Ferris wheel, the Helicopter pad, to Monte Monte Carlo without the pathetic Diablo's Cantina, and oh, by the way.............because of City Center, there is no "walk" from Monte Carlo to Bellagio. NYNY has lost the pre/post 2001, to a non 2001 factor. Many people will know what i mean. The good old days (back in the mid 90's) are in many ways forever lost. NYNY The hotels may be on the same property, minus CC, but the more things change i wish they stayed the same.

    Know what you mean. Unfortunately times and customers spending habits have changed and the casino's have to adjust accordingly.

    It might be extra cheap because of the construction. Yea, like said above they aren't touching the inside. There isn't anything exciting about Monte Carlo... Any reason you have to stay there? I would go with Luxor, but make sure you pick a Tower Room those rooms are quite nice and are a little updated. Definitely worth the price difference. The pyramid rooms are old and awkwardly shaped. The casino was updated a few years ago so it's not bad, and it's an easy walk in to Mandalay Bay and Excalibur.

    The weather is cold in January. Probably in the 40's-50's. I mean they don't really have snow or anything, but a chance it could be rainy and it's pretty chilly outside.

    Ah it was fun back then! But I love all the new stuff, it's so cool! I'm sure in 10 years we will be talking about how outdated Aria is haha.

    Was just there this past January...........The fountains at Caesar's Palace were all frozen, some still iced up during the day. The temps at night were in the 20's, and with that wind howling, it was effing cold for sure. The days never got above 40 - 45, so yes, it can be chilly!

    Construction

    It's like how people talk about Bellagio now. I remember when it was new and the best place in town.
