So I'm finding myself needing to book a one-night stay on a Saturday night in July. I'm heading to Vegas for a conference, and bringing my wife with me. Sunday night I will be checking in to a conference hotel, so wanted to stay somewhere nice on the Strip that we can both enjoy. I was debating between THEhotel at $184 with this deal package: Reserve your stay and receive up to 20% off room rates, including: ¤ $50 Cabana Credit (Sunday-Thursday) ¤ $25 Sand Dollars (credit to be used on the beach) ¤ $4 off a Crossroads at House of Blues specialty drink including souvenir glass and Vdara at $144 Book your next luxurious escape at Vdara this pool season and receive 20% off Deluxe rates OR 30% off Suite rates and a $50 Pool & Lounge Vdara Credit* now through September 2013! Then I saw the exclusive VMB deal for the MGM Grand that comes up to $152 with - 20% off NEW rooms - $75 dining credit My thought is that the new MGM rooms with the $75 dining credit easily win the value category, but we've been there before. Not sure if it is as interesting doing the MGM again. Nothing against the place-have had many great times there, just feeling the itch to do something new. I really like the idea of THEhotel. I've never stayed at Mandalay and they have some great restaurants, we could easily have a great day there. While Vdara comes up as a good price, I'm kind of put off by the vibe of Aria- we are not their target clientele. Am I crazily prejudiced? Anyone have any suggestions or advice?
