    I need some ideas for choosing a suite to stay at for 1 night on my 60th birthday.

    Here is what I'm looking for:
    1) Great view
    2) Seperate bedroom (i.e. with a wall and a door dividing it)
    3) Strip property, but not Aria or Cosmopolitan
    4) Looking at spending $1000-1500

    Any suggestions?

    can't get any better in those 4 departments than a Lakeview Penthouse at the B! another good option would be a Skyloft if you can get a strip view. but I still think you can't beat the lake view at the B anywhere in Vegas.

    A Sky View 1050 suite at Mandalay Bay would be an option. View right up the strip, the problem is, you have to get one facing north in the "2" wing, and I'm not sure you can guarantee that.

    At Four Seasons you can reserve a Premier Strip-view one bedroom suite, I posted pics (I think I put them in the Trip Reports section) of the one we stayed in on our NYE trip. The date of my post was either late Dec 2012 or early Jan 2013.

    Yep, looks like those are in the same spot as the Sky View I had, a couple of floors lower. More expensive than the Sky View, but the decor looks a little nicer.

    Yes, the only difference is that FS separates the Strip view one bedroom suites into their own category, so if the Strip view is a "must", that is a way to make sure you get it. All FS rooms/suites were renovated in late 2012.

    Not sure of your dates but a very cost effective alternative are the Mirage Tower suites.
    They are often $500 or less and are very large 2 room suites.
    Renovated in the last couple years,walk in closet,wet bar,all the normal suite amenities except a second bathroom but for one night use the other $500-900
    for dinner Picasso and gambling.

    The first thought that came to mind was an Extra Bedroom Suite, or as Chuck said, a 1050 Sky View Suite both at Mandalay Bay.

    Another option would be the Bellagio suites that have a fountain view. I am especially a big fan of the 2 bedroom Penthouse suites at Bellagio. Just make sure you book a fountain view of the strip because some of these suites are located on the other side of the building facing mountains.

    With a $1000 budget, there are lots of options.

    BUT - I would never, ever do just one night. Ever.

    You get into room late on day 1, and have to leave around noon the next day. Move the budget down to $500-$700 and do two nights.

    Bellagio is geat.

    Paris would be affordable.

    Not sure why you ruled out Cosmo... open balcony is GREAT!

    Vadara?

    I haven't stayed here but I want to SO BAD. Skyline Terrace Suite at MGM

    http://mgmgrand.com/hotel/skyline-terrace-suite.aspx

    How sweet is that! 800sqft patio, 2 stories...

    [​IMG]

    Comes up on this Suite promo code MGM has out right now (also some other really cool looking suites without the balcony, but I think that would be awesome)

    https://reservations.mgmmirage.com/bookingengine.aspx?host=promo&pid=001&show=rates&code=MGMSTE20&kbid=335345&sub=YDYFG!W!MGMSTE20

    Looks like you can get it between $600-$1100 depending on when you want to go. I would think you could get 2 nights for your budget almost anywhere, unless you get the craziest suite on the strip.

    Or I'd love the 2 story penthouse at Vdara, but I'm guessing you aren't a fan of CityCenter if you don't want Aria or Cosmo!

    THEhotel might be an option. The only time I stayed there my view was of a freeway but it was a comped room, maybe they have nicer suites for those willing to pay. Cheers!

    The only problem with that suite is per the OP's criteria - in the remodeled Skyline Terrace suites, the bedroom is a loft - it's open to the downstairs - no bedroom door.

    ME TOO! Between me and my BF, we have $1,300 in express comps that we are planning on spending to get that suite for 2 nights during the week for our fall trip. It usually seems to run about $600 a night during the week.

    really? have you been in one? I just assumed it was like the 1BR Skylofts where the bedroom is upstairs, but there's still a door and a glass wall. no door and wide open to the downstairs is a terrible idea.

    Hmm, well it's on it's own floor? I don't know exactly how it's laid out. There is other suites though, but it would be really cool to have that balcony!

    It's look fairly separate, but yea looks like it maybe open to the bottom floor.

    yeah that's dumb. the layout in the 1BR Skyloft is very similar, but it has floor to ceiling glass so it's semi-sound proof if someone is upstairs sleeping and someone else is downstairs. having it wide open like that is a terrible design.

    THEhotel has your criteria but for a fraction of the price... a big fraction lol.

    I like the Bellagio idea but if you don't like Aria or Cosmo, it makes me wonder if you would like the B just because it is in that same area, but I guess that highly depends on your reasoning.

    Elara works as well and there should be some renovated floors done by the time you go.
