    Yes Luxor - have stayed there before so I know it is not the Cosmo with a wrap around. We were not going back until January. The hubby said he wanted to do something different and we were looking at a cabin in the mountains. Then a couple of weeks ago we watched Wild Card with Jason Stratham - my favorite action star and he asked if I wanted to go back to Vegas -- I am thinking this a trick question and I had to consider my answer carefully.

    "No honey this is your trip you get to decide where we go" He said to figure out which is cheaper. :wink2: Well I can figure that one out.

    For some reason the uber low roller - my husband get's decent offers from Luxor and I get squat - he is Sapphire and I am Pearl. We were going to go in July and then our son told us he is going to some techno-nerd conference in August at Mandalay Bay -- Black Hat???? He is an IT director for a bank --- in other words my son is a nerd. He has never been to Vegas and his wife cannot get off her work - so we are going Aug 1-6 to combine a little family time in the evenings. He will be staying at Mandalay Bay.

    I would rather stay at MGM but it would probably cost twice as much and since I am under the eye to keep it on a budget I checked out our Luxor offers - well his - because mine sucked. His offer was one free night with another night and rates starting @ $29. August 1 is a Saturday so that night is $115 - Sunday and Monday night $35 Tuesday $45 and Wednesday free -- The total with tax and that dreaded resort fee is just under $400.00 for five nights --- and this is for a room in the tower and not the pyramid -- score. Cabin would have been about $1200. Now I just need SW to actually have a real sale. Sigh

    The other reason for staying at Luxor is the connection with Mandalay Bay and I don't want to be marching up and down the strip in August. It won't be much different that our Texas weather when it will still be 100 degrees or more here.

    Not bad! The tower rooms are totally fine at Luxor. Keep your eye on offers, it's still pretty early, not many summer offers out yet! Might be able to adjust your price even further.

    I'm a low roller and MGM sends me good stuff ALL the time, My next trip and past 3 trips were nearly 50% off. Not free, but still far too good of a deal to pass up!

    Stayed at Luxor twice, both in the towers. Never any issues and I liked the room. Bathrooms were well appointed with a nice big tub that came in handy after walking all day long.

    Black Hat is at MB. Def Con is at Paris/Bally's this year, and I believe it was at the Rio last year.
