I stayed in Vegas last year at the Paris and used the $20 trick to upgrade to an amazing Red Premier End room that had two views overlooking the strip and the fountains. It was fantastic. The hotel itself was fine, but not special. (We did have a wonderful dinner at the Eiffel Tower. I am going back in July to celebrate my 60th and staying 4 nights. I'm also bringing another couple for two of the nights in another room, to help celebrate. Right now I have reservations at Caesars for the Octavius Tower Luxury Room. I think it has a jacuzzi spa tub (I was going to call to check) and a strip view. I'm not getting the greatest deal but I can cancel. The 4 nights avg 165 plus the 47 for resort fee and taxes. I have been trying to do better or equal for less. I do like central strip, but, visiting the restaurants and MB last time showed off the property well. So, I am looking at deals at Aria, theHotel, MB and the Mirage. (I stayed at the Mirage with a strip view about 20 years ago on my first trip. Back then the hotel was cutting edge. A great view is one of my musts and I'm not sure I want to chance a $20 trick to get it this time. A nice Jaccuzi spa tub would be a great bonus, but not absolutely required. There seem to be deals to be had right now at Mirage and Aria but when looking at Arias panoramic or city view rooms, they don't seem as good as what I had at Paris. Any thoughts? Oh, and by the way, my wife and I are not big gamblers. We enjoy Vegas more for the food and the shows. Our friends just play slots.
