    Hello Everyone,

    My wife and I are headed to Vegas in a few days - exact time can be found below. This is our first stay at Monte Carlo and while not the newest place on the strip, it won't be filled with the pretentious folks you find at Aria, etc. Not all at Aria are pretentious - I do like to play Tiles there.

    We were given a Monaco Suite and freeplay for our trip and the question is this - how are the Monaco Suites? It looks like one room that is extended to offer a living room. Anyone stay in one of these before? I've stayed at the Venetian and that suite was the same (one room extended as to offer a living space) so I'm not expecting much. Comments are appreciated.

    I've stayed in one. It's a larger room with an extra 1/2 bath. It also has a couch and several tables. I've stayed there twice and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. MC is a solid choice in it's price range.

    Thank you, Sir! To me, a suite as multiple separate rooms, not one large room. You call that a large room, not a suite. Looking forward to our stay and a few days in paradise.

    This. Although it's quite a bit larger with a coach area in front of the bed. And you'll be very close to the elevators which is always nice. They are nice rooms but far from a suite.

    I have stayed in a Monaco suite several times - I think the photo on the MC website is accurate. You get the couch and coffee table in front of the TV, and the room includes a refrigerator. The extra half bath is also nice. I have found the furnishings to be a bit tired....and some of the extra square footage is essentially wasted in the big entryway. That being said - I have found the rooms to be a good value in the $100-$150 price range and would stay there again at that price point. The rooms are right at the center of the building....so very close to the elevator. (you also get more hallway noise....but the bed is quite a ways from the door so I haven't found that to cause any problems)

    Thanks all. Close to the elevators is nice and we aren't in the room very early so the noise shouldn't be an issue.

    I've stayed in them very often, also the Spa and Diamond Suites. All are very tired. The extra space is nice but the rooms being in the central hub are very noisy.

    I like the extra room to be able to spread out, plus the extra half-bath is nice if you're trying to get ready while someone else is showering. Proximity to the elevators is nice, as others have pointed out. The strangest thing about these rooms, to me, is that there has always been an adjoining door, so if you get a noisy neighbor, that can be a real pain. Having said that, I would never want to have to stay in one of their regular rooms b/c of how old and crampy they feel.
    My biggest complaint about MC rooms is the lack of wifi. In 2015, that's so ridiculous -- especially when they charge most people a resort fee.

    I would concur with 99% of what everyone else is saying. I stayed in one last September, and yes the furnishings are a bit tired, but I found it clean, convenient, and close to the elevators. The mini fridge is a nice plus along with the extra half bath. Our room had a narrow table in the entry way that was perfect for setting the room keys, etc. on.

    Stayed in one a few weeks back, and definitely concur with all of the above. Rooms are spacious, furniture is nice, but somewhat worn. If you don't mind that and like proximity to the elevators, this is a good choice.

    We've stayed in the Monaco Suites three times and never had an issue with the elevator sounds, though one trip we did have some people in the lobby area outside the door talking pretty loud at 2AM.

    I liked the extra bathroom: gave me a place to go and read the news and work on my trip reports while wife was occupying the other one getting ready for the day.

    For extra space in the room: there is a lot of it. We used the sofa area in front of the TV but the rest of it was just a lot of extra space that we didn't really need or use.

    Internet: the last time we stayed in these rooms was a couple of years ago and the internet was wired. I bring along a small router on trips so it wasn't an issue to get wifi to our phones and tablets because we were prepared, otherwise would have been a pain in the butt.

    About the wear and tear: our first time in a Monaco Suite was 2010 and back then the room we had was looking worn down and in need of an upgrade.


    Overall we liked the room and like staying at Monte Carlo and would easily stay in them again.
