    The 'board' has probably been down this road before but thought I would throw it out there anyway. I realize this is a matter of perspective - what you look for or want. I can only come up with 4 - Wynn, Bellagio, Aria and Mirage. Cromwell could be #5 but needs bit more testing.

    Wynn - the rooms (but hate the no comp drink policy at bars)
    Bellagio - VP selection for a strip property and...
    Aria - not sure why, but like the place
    Mirage - history, many stays there yrs back

    What say you?

    I would think Caesars would be up there if you stayed in one of the newer towers.

    A year or two ago, I would have had V/P above Aria and maybe even Cosmo. But the dearth of playable gambling options these days moves it down a notch for me (and caused me to change my upcoming reservations from Venetian to Aria).

    My top 5 are :
    Mandalay Bay
    Caesars
    Wynn
    Bellagio
    Cromwell


    My personal top 5 are CET properties because they give me good bang for my buck with comped or nearly comped rooms:
    Caesars
    Bally's
    Planet Hollywood
    Paris
    LinQ

    Different strokes for different folks.
    I used to stay at MGM properties for many years. But i follow comps for rooms. However, i do frequent almost all hotels on the Strip, so it's all relative.

    Vegas has choices, whatever floats your boat.

    If we're talking Classy Joints:

    1. Bellagio. First casino I ever set foot in, at the tender age of 40.
    2. Cosmo. Golly, it's an attractive joint, no matter where you look. I sit and play 10c full-pay video poker and don't even pretend to be hip.
    3. Aria. Love Julian Serrano, Five50, and the general vibe of the place.
    4. Wynn. Back in the day, the best buffet. I'd stay here, if I were a millionaire.
    5. Mandalay Bay. Like Aria, I just like the vibe of the place. Am there rarely--mainly to have the great brunch at Border Grill--because it's so far south.

    But like Waverunner, I have a soft spot for the CET places on the other side of the street. I'm generally staying and playing somewhere in the PHo-Bally's corridor.

    1. Bellagio, could watch those fountains every night from premium view room. (Was only able to afford 1 night on 2 different occasion, LOL) And love their casino
    2.Wynncore, just beautiful.
    3.Aria, great casino, great rooms
    4. Caesar's, yes the casino is chopped up but navigating the property is something you get used to and my DW loves the decor, pools, and Octavious towers.
    5.Mirage, nostalgic for us (1st Las Vegas hotel we stayed at) plus love walking into the property late at night with the waterfalls, palm trees, love it.
    (V/P would have made it but we just can't get comped rooms there, guess we're really low rollers. If we can't get comped or at least discounted rooms we don't stay there!
