    I admit it, I am a smoker. I have 3 nights at the Mirage starting Saturday. I got an offer in my email for an upgrade to the king tower rooms or whatever they are called now. However I have read other places that both of those floors are nonsmoking. Anyone know this to be true? BTW this is my first post on here, I have been lurking until now, lol. :ssst:

    Welcome to the forum. I can't specifically answer your question about the rooms, but I suspect that there must be at least a few that allow smoking. It is Las Vegas after all. I too am a smoker but prefer non smoking rooms. If I force myself to leave the room to smoke, I tend to smoke less. Never had a problem going down to the casino or outside to induldge my vice.

    Good strategy, but in order to have my morning smoke I would have to shower, fix hair and do makeup before I would be allowed to be seen, lol.

    I smoke when in Vegas, and the one time I stayed at the Mirage in 2012 I requested a "tower" room. The check-in clerk stated that they have no smoking rooms on those floors, as you stated.

    I ended up in a regular smoking room on about floor 20, which still had a nice view over-looking the pool and the south strip.
    But the bathroom had a regular tub-shower combo. I heard that the tower rooms have separate showers and soaking tubs.

    Whatever room you get, enjoy the Mirage!

    Have fun!

    I'm pretty sure that floor 20 is the only smoking floor at the Mirage.

    I am really lusting after one of those rooms with the jetted tub. Dang it. Somebody said that the windows at Mirage open. Maybe I could just hang out the window.

    They only open a little but you can probably use them. There are fans in the bathrooms as well so you could steam the room up from a hot shower, spray perfume all over and let it dissipate. I used all kinds of tricks in the past and never had a cleaning charge but am glad I quit smoking.

    We have had a tower and penthouse suite. One on the top floor, one on the 2nd to top floor. These rooms had ashtrays and matches in the sitting/living room and bar.

    Although when it comes to smoking (cigarettes) in the room, I'm with KazooTom!

    If you were to get a Tower room, I'm not sure if I would chance smoking in those rooms now. There was a recent thread about hotels charging a cleaning fee when someone smokes in a non-smoking room.

    And then there is this on their reservations page under terms and conditions:

    Everything I have seen states nonsmoking in the Tower rooms. I had a Tower one bedroom suite in May. 26th floor, I booked a smoking and it was a nonsmoking...front desk clerk told me to ask housekeeping for an ashtray and smoke in it anyway...not kosher. I booked a smoking queen executive at MGM recently and once again was told only nonsmoking available. I brought an Ecig and used it in the room. Was a life saver. No smoke, no smell, no ash....I got my fix and it left no odor for anyone else. I was afraid to have a real cig in it due to fear of a cleaning fee. I saw nothing written anywhere but didn't want to chance it.

    I'm with others who, even though I smoke, don't want a smoking room. Do the mini-groom - wash your face, brush your teeth, comb your hair and head on down.

    In any hotel we ask for non-smoking, even when we were smokers. Smoking rooms smell bad and you notice it even more after you quit. I use an electronic cigarette in non-smoking rooms and there are no odor issues.

    Don't know where the OP is located, but there might be enough time to order a good e-cig to bring to LV, rather than a cheap disposable one.

    Put on tight jeans and high heels and no one will notice your face.

    Please whatever you do don't get a nonsmoking room and smoke in it. Those if us who don't smoke and especially those of us who never have will notice. If as a smoker you think a smoking room smells bad, how do you think us non smokers think

    My husband is allergic to smoke and i never smoked in our house or vehicles but i as a non smoker notice it way before my husband ever does. I am way more in tune with it than most people who have never smoked.

    There are so many people with different lung issues that it isn't really fair to them thinking they get a non smoking room and find the one place to get away from the smoke in vegas come to find out it has been smoked in as well.

    I like the one who suggested wash face, something for breath (i brushed AFTER my first cig, it tasted gross otherwise) and comb hair, go for cig then come back and get ready for the day. I never wanted smoking rooms either, sure they are convenient but gross.

    When I checked in I was upgraded to the 24th Floor. He said they didn't have any smoking rooms with the jacuzzi tubs open. So I opted for the 20th floor which is smoking. They switched me the next day to the top floor, it wasn't a suite, but it did have the jacuzzi tub and was a smoking room. So I did everything by the book. No smoking in a non-smoking room. I sure didn't want to get hit with a $300. cleaning fee!

    I have had to charge people those fees before and they are no fun. IDK about people down there but up here we hate having to charge, but it happens.

    glad it worked out for you.

    Before you leave, look up a neighborhood vape shop and get a decent starter e-cig kit (eGo type or similar), and not the junk e-cigs they sell at 7-11 or walgreens. It did the trick for us while we were in Maui where we couldn't smoke anywhere but the beach or parking lot and it was a private residence. Starter kit will run you about 30-40. Both my girlfriend and I actually got used the e-cig and switched completely to ecigs when we got home. Low odor when vaping it and no residual odor afterwards, perfect for using up in the room and save the real smokes for down in the casino. Oops didn't fully read the OP. Well, maybe next time!
