I booked 3 nights a while back at the Mirage for a Wednesday-Saturday trip in May. I decided recently to add a night onto the end of my trip and stay until Sunday. By the time I went to book, the Mirage was more expensive than I was willing to pay, so I started looking elsewhere. I went ahead and booked a room at Harrah's for a little less than $100 for the night. I want to stay in that general price range, but I've read some bad reviews on places like Harrah's, Excalibur and Luxor (those seem to be the ones in this price range). I'm still in my 20's, so I'm not picky and really just looking for a place to crash for the night. Are the rooms in these "lower end" properties really that bad or is it just in comparison to the 5 star resorts they sit next to? Second question... If you had to choose between the lower end properties, which one would you choose? Bally's looks like it's sold out that night and some of the other places I've thought about (Monte Carlo, NYNY, Planet Hollywood) are $50-$80 more expensive for the night, which don't seem worth it since I don't spend much time in the room. So right now my choices are Harrah's (already booked), Luxor (would have to cab there), Excalibur (cab), and a couple of slightly more expensive options Flamingo and the Linq. I know everyone's preferences are different and I may or may not change, but I'm curious to see what other people would do.
