    Staying two nights through Myvegas at Monte Carlo in late May. We just got an offer to upgrade to a spa suite for $49 a night. Has anyone ever stayed in these rooms? Is it worth the upgrade?

    Thanks!

    Honestly that's about what the rooms should sell for. They are pretty dated, the spa is large enough for two, has a small window overlooking whatever side of the building you are one, a wet bar area, couch, bigger tub, etc. All the furniture in the Suites I've been staying in is pretty worn and dated. These rooms are off the central hub of the hotel, close to the elevators so they can be noisy, very noisy. Usually they have connecting doors to other rooms so it depends on your neighbors or maybe you - if one either is planning on a party and the other doesn't want one expect issues. Last year all of a sudden my neighbors started blaring full blast music like it was Cinco de Mayo, but it wasn't. Folks started piling into the Diamond suite next door. Since I had work the next day and needed sleep the hotel gave me an end room on another floor rather than stop someone's birthday party (they were cool, invited me in, apologized but I needed to sleep until 5 a.m. not partying)

    Others will have different opinions I'm sure but until MC renovates their Suites I refuse to stay in them. I gave up 13 nights in a suite in March for a 2 Queen room at the end of the hall just for the quiet. That had a broken dresser, broken window, etc but at least I got sleep. Next trip Aria.

    They are nice rooms (little worn but that's accurate for all of the rooms). The Spa Suites are larger than a regular room and have a small bar area when you walk in and a spa tub by the window. If the quality of the room is important too you, $100 more might be worth it. For me, a regular or Monoco suite room for less money is fine.

    I've stayed in both a spa suite and monoco and haven't had any issues with noise near the elevators.

    Just a heads up, the spa tubs with jets have all been replaced, so what you'll be getting is a spa-sized bathtub.

    Thanks everyone for the advice!! I might just save the $100, and spend it on a show, or more video poker, lol.

    I can't believe they got rid of the jets. I'm not really interested in sitting in a big tub.
