    I am interested in booking a one room balcony suite at the Signature Sept. 26-30. I took the advice of a poster here (thanks!) and would like to prepay on a Vegas.com card from Costco. In case any of you are not familiar with it, you buy a gift card at Costco for Vegas.com for $79.99 and you get $100.00 to spend on Vegas.com. So it's a $100 gift card that you only pay $79.99.

    I figured I will save about $200 by using this method. Right now I have a reservation at MGM (confirmation # only, no $$ put down). So here's my concern. If I book so far in advance, and I don't end up going, the only refund is credit back on my Vegas.com card (and frankly I have no idea when I would go again!).

    So as I see it I have two choices. 1. Book now save the $200.00 and pray no changes happen. or 2. Wait until the end of August when I know for sure I'm going and then hope that they have a a one bedroom balcony suit available.

    Thus my question is have people noticed that they run out of these one bedroom balcony suits? Or has anyone ever taken the card back to Costco for refund (I doubt it)? Or if anyone as any other suggestions I would be happy to hear it!

    Thanks!

    I would call the Signature in person and ask them, what are the probabilities of them having the type of room you would like. That may help you decide.

    I bet you save more on vrbo fwiw.

    You can easily get 30% off there

    Would you give up MGM to stay at Signature? I've been reading reviews and I'm not impressed with the pics and reviews. I live in Michigan and have stayed at our MGM and it actually appears nicer! It feels hit or miss. I really want elegance and no Jersey Shore kids, while being close to the action.

    Just stayed at the Signature and thought it was terrific. I haven't stayed at a suite at the Grand but have stayed in both towers. My wife and I both want to go back to the Signature.

    Thanks! Good to know. How did you come upon your rate? Did you rent from Vivo? Or whatever that site is? Or did you call up and book directly?
    After sleeping on it I do feel more confident that I should just reserve it, even though I fear commitment!

    They sent me something. I am not a big fish by any means but they sent me a rate of (I am going off memory) about 150 a night for two week nights. So I spent about 340 total I think? Superb room. 32nd floor with balcony. Bedroom with an actual door. 950 sq.ft. So I am currently checking out the VRBO thing that I have never used before. The MGM currently shows a rate of $705 total for the 3 nights I want to stay and I am thinking that the VRBO site can beat that.

    I looked at the Executive Suite but it was 550 Sq.ft. with obviously no bedroom. So the one bedroom suite (snoring issues) really fit the bill for me and my wife. There was a pull out bed in the living room. Two separate bathrooms, kitchnette and jacuzzi tub. We loved it.

    If it were me making this decision, I would wait until August to book. To be honest sometimes I wait until a few days before my arrival date, since I take short trips and live close (So Cal), so the dollar amount on the cards is not spendy. You can monitor prices and optional dates to see how the room rates trend to get a feel for what kind of deal to expect as you get closer to August.

    In my opinion there are always options available, and for most booking a few weeks or more in advance is best. On popular holidays (like Memorial Day), if you do not book in advance the room prices rise and options will drop dramatically the closer you get to your arrival date. Best hotel deal, say for a few days before Memorial Day, was Eastside Cannery for $100/nt and after that you could book Super 8 or Arizona Charlies for $120, all other resorts (few available) were between $240 and $700 per night.

    MGM vs Signature. I stayed at both recently. I'd choose the Signature, since I can have it all there, including a pools and jacuzzi that are not subject to random histrionics - you can relax.

    Your trip is what you make of it - so bring the fun and all will be right in the universe.


    Cheers,


    Cosmo

    Thanks for the info! I shall take your advice and wait until Aug. I already have a room booked at MGM so if a good Signature deal comes up, even better!
