    Ok, I am sure that most people have read my seem to be ongoing dilemna on where to stay. Orginally I was going to stay at Encore for 3 nights due to the $200 in Free play they are giving me..Totaled about $309 with taxes and resort fees for three nights. As of right now this is still reserved for three nights and am staying four nights 11/19 and departing on 11/23..

    I also have PH booked for all four nights with for a total of $260 including tax with no other incentives.

    I have a reservation at Aria for the last two nights with a $100 dining credit, this would cost me about $285 with taxes and resort fees.I would most likely change my reservation at PH and saty there the first two nights

    Now I am contemplating an offer from MGM with $75 dining credit for the last two nights. The total here would be about $200 for the two nights and must say I am a HUGE fan of Craftsteak and feel that the $75.00 would at least get me my martini and appetizer.

    i am going to splurge at least one meal and have only stayed at MGM of the above properties, i will be flying solo so the room is not all that important to me as much as a fun atmosphere to gamble, maybe run into some ladies and I am guessing I might get drunk.

    I know i have plenty of options but I cannot seem to decide so once again I am looking for a little help.

    Ooh and by the way budget is an issue, if it wasn't I would be staying in a suite in ARIA!!

    .. depends upon taste ..

    . i'd keep the encore rez, that place is phenomenal ..has everything and it is pure class ..drink service A+ ..gaming, restaurants, eye candy ..

    . .as for aria, that would be next .. right next to bellagio if you want to change up after a few hours, go play someplace else ..both those properties have great places to eat such as their dim sum daily, yellowtail for exotic sushi, heck even the buffet is good ..and i typically don't do buffets ..!

    .. PH over MGM for me, that place has gone a bit downhill, though the food choices are to my estimation better ..

    . .any place you go will be a ton of fun, that is for sure!!

    I've gotten so I like switching hotels if the deals are worth it. For my upcoming trip my wife is going for a conference so we get to stay at Aria for free. After that we're moving to Palazzo for two days.

    MGM

    Isn't there a resort fee of $28. per night at the MGM?
    It will be a $56. dollar total for the two nights? Plus...other fees? Hummm....

    Personally I'd stay at any of those hotels you listed EXCEPT PH.

    My friend stayed at PH during our last trip because his room was comped, and it did not impress me at all. I honestly can't believe people consider it to be in the same league as the MGM. There is absolutely nothing special about the rooms or hotel in general.

    (Just to note for comparison's sake, I've stayed at the MGM Grand, Venetian, Cosmopolitan, and Mirage during my various trips to Vegas. PH ranks far below every one of those.)

    Thank you so much for the advice, I appreciate it.I love tid location of PH but that seems to be all that excites me about the place. I think I am going to stay at PH for two nights and then move to MGM or vice versa..I still may stay at Encore for 3 nights and maybe just slum it one night at Harrahs or something
