    So for the same price, I have a Spa suite at MC booked for me and my wife. She's only been once as a teen so hasn't really seen much of vegas. We are staying 4 nights. She isn't much into gambling, but would probably enjoy the pool some. We mostly will be exploring the strip up and down and checking out all the casino's and shops. I've stayed in the Tropicana, luxor, excalibur, Paris and Harrahs before, and one night at MC.

    I think she would enjoy the hot tub in the suite, altho the Mirage pool is nicer looking?

    We will see a few shows, probably Ka and something else. For food probably mostly low to mid range, not looking to spend a ton.

    Looking for around 200 a night or less average, staying Tues through Fri night (for some reason the last Tuesday of September is more than the rest of the nights)

    Any thoughts?

    If you're not into gambling, I'd actually recommend Vdara.

    You can get a City Corner Suite for your budget (which is a significantly nicer room than a Monte Carlo Suite or a Mirage Standard room), the hotel and its corridors aren't as filled with drunks yelling at all hours, and you got easy access to the Aria and Monte Carlo (and the tram to Bellagio). It's closer to Center Strip than either of the alternatives, and you get access to the Aria pool, which may be less interesting than the other two but likewise has the advantage of having fewer kids and having a more modern luxury feel to it.

    However, if it's between the two you propose, I like Monte Carlo more, due to its location (especially if you want to see Ka at the MGM Grand). For me, I'd honestly probably just prefer to relax in an in-suite tub rather than go to the pools more than once anyway, so it gets the nod from me. Also, there's definitely more budget-friendly dining options both within the casino and its environs than at the Mirage.

    Agree with Boogallo on Vdara.Great location and nice rooms.
    If I had to choose between Monte Carlo and Mirage....
    I would go with Mirage even though the room will be a little smaller.
    Nicer pool and better restaurant selection.
    For me,very little to like about Monte Carlo.The casino staff is generally terrible.The walls in the rooms are paper thin.The place is worn out.
    Both hotels have small bathrooms but Mirage is a nicer property.

    Don't know if still in doubt, but the hot tub in the Spa suite is great! You can even watch TV from it.
    And the suite has a little kitchen area, with fridge, coffee maker, sink and a bar, very convenient.
    I love the location of Monte Carlo, everything at walking distance and a free tram to Bellagio.
    And the swimming pool is nice too, with the lazy river and enough shade during hot hours.
