Planning my spring trip. Wanted to book Aria, but the rates went up already from what I seen the other day. (was 99, now 153) History: Have stayed at NYNY in both a regular small room and a Jacuzzi suite (2002), Stayed at Excalibur (2005)in a standard strip view room and finally Flamingo (2011) in a petite suite, iv stayed at other places, but lets stay with-in the times I went since turning 21. Let me add, I am consistently playing myVegas trying to earn a free night at Aria but right now here are what my options are limited to (As I want to stay south strip this time and under 100 a night and want a room with a view): Monte Carlo deluxe room: 68/night or strip view 85/night NYNY: Either Park Ave or Madison Ave strip view average 85/night Luxor Pyramid Spa suite 75/night Excal: Contemporary Tower King/View 56/night Due to size, MGM is not on my list. I considered Mirage but rates are higher than my 100/night and Treasure Island is not posting rates past December. What are your thoughts on said rooms/properties? Iv not been to any of them since 2005, never made it past Cosmo in 2011.
