    Hi all,

    We are going to possibly make our next trip one with my parents - and I have never booked a multi BR suite on the strip before.

    Just wondering which hotels those would be at?

    I would even consider a slightly off strip place in this scenario - ie. Trump.

    Or - just wondering if it is cheaper to get two rooms adjoining?

    Appreciate your thoughts on this!....

    Ever consider staying at the Signature MGM and stay in a 1 bedroom? I believe there is one king and 1 pull out queen. Plus they are around 950 sq feet. Where have you stayed before?

    2 adjoining rooms will definitely be the least expensive way to go.
    There is a premium for one bedroom suites over 2 adjoining rooms.When you talk about the second bedroom it goes up more.
    MGM has a 2 bedroom called the Marquee Suite (they may have changed the name in the renovation)
    Also,most hotels will have a one bedroom that has a seperate room connecting to the living room.I have booked those before on a comp.Don't know when you are going but finding suites,especially big ones,that are not controlled by the casino can be tough.

    2 rooms is best.

    Everyone goes back to their own private space at night, no stumbling around and accidentally tripping over the wrong person.

    This is one of the top questions, and most mis understood issues.

    Most suites are really just a larger room. One bed.

    If two couples are traveling, getting adjoinging rooms is cheaper, and it gives you more room, privacy etc.

    in reality, if you need some alone time, not getting adjoinging is a better idea.

    Yeah, once you get in to the 2 bedroom suite level you usually end up with a living room, which will be a huge extra expense. If it's a 1 bedroom suite that is actually separate rooms (a bedroom and living room) that the other room has a pull out couch, you end up with 2 very different rooms that may share amenities (like the bathroom.)

    But, that being said, it may behoove you to look at trying to get someone's timeshare week that they're trying to offload. Some of them are the full 2 bedroom suite, which is actually a full 1 bedroom suite (2 separate rooms) and a small suite-ette like nostresshere was talking about that conjoin through a lock-off door.

    Sometimes you can get those timeshare off-loads for surprisingly cheap, just do your research on what you're actually getting. Remember, "On The Strip" is a very loose term, you could end up a mile South of Mandalay Bay. And many timeshares don't have a casino nor restaurant in them. But, if it's close enough to the action, that might not bother you.

    Also, timeshare suites generally have a full kitchen, complete with dinnerware, cookware, and all the normal cooking "stuff". You just provide food (including spices and such, the only consumable provided is water, there might be a water filter pitcher sitting in the fridge.) Which might be nice for saving a bit on breakfasts and such.

    The only problem with booking connecting rooms is that most hotels will not guarantee you will get connecting rooms. I have tried this a couple times and have never gotten connecting rooms. Rooms on the same floor, yes. Connecting, no. I think you would be better off to find something that is guaranteed if you are really wanting connecting. Signature at MGM is a good option. I have also stayed in the Marquee suite that one of the other posters mentioned, it is truly a two bedroom suite. Look for something that states two bedroom but it won't be cheap. Good luck!

    I would also recommend the 2 bedroom suite at Elara. Depending on the dates and how early you book, the value is great.
