    Headed to Vegas in late August for 4 nites with a lady friend. Looking to spend around $100-115 a nite on a room. Since hotels are cheap during the summer it looks like I can afford a pretty nice room. Do I get a suite/mini suite or book a normal room at really nice place such as CP or MB? I've been to Vegas a few times always stayed in "budget" friendly spots. It'll be her first time. All input welcome. Thanks in advance.

    You might want to consider checking out Mlife.com. You could probably do MGM Grand room or suite for around the price your looking for, depending on the dates.

    I will almost always take a "nice standard room" over a small suite at a middling place. The linens, bathrooms, furnishings, TVs etc will usually be a lot nicer in the "nice standard room". Plus the hotel itself will usually have better amenities, service, restaurants etc.

    I would only choose the bigger room in a "lesser" hotel if I absolutely needed the extra space (though mid level mini-suites aren't always bigger than a room at a nicer place - the two places you mention have very large regular rooms) or if I was concerned about the rest of my budget holding up at a pricier property (as everything tends to cost a bit more at the nicer places).

    Right now Mandalay Bay's rate calendar says it's $80 per night for a Standard Room Sunday Aug 25 to Aug 29. If you want a strip view it's $100 per night. If you want a spa suite it's $100 per night and a Great Room Suite is $120.

    A standard room at Mirage is $79 and $99 for those same nights (depending on the day of the week).

    You'll have to tack on the daily resort fee.
