    Hello all - Looking for a little guidance.

    Currently planning a trip May 25-30.

    As of now I have the following:
    2 nights comped at NYNY through a host
    3 nights comped at Harrahs through an online offer.

    I just received a new offer for 3 nights at Mirage so I could do:
    3 nights comped at Mirage
    2 nights comped at Harrahs

    Looking for some advice on where to say based on the following things..

    We would like a nice pool (I assume most would pick Mirage)
    I've been to Vegas twice and have stayed at Mgm and Mirage and I believe I prefer the south end of the strip and really liked MGM.
    One less night of harrahs is a plus.

    What would you do?

    thanks!:wave:

    How about 3 nights Mirage to enjoy the pool and 2 nights at NYNY to enjoy the south end?

    You can get ROOMS back to back at MLife most of the time. You can not get offers back to back.

    You can sometimes call and get nights at Mlife extended.

    You can almost always do better at CET using the rate calendar instead of offers.

    I'm not sure if I can do this.

    My Mirage stay would be booked off an offer on the MLIFE website. My NYNY stay was booked from a host.

    Right now I have NYNY 5/25 and 5/26 with a host and Harrahs 5/27 - 5/30. Could I book my mirage offer 5/27 - 5/30? or will that be an issue with having 2 stays in a row?

    Please help.

    thank you

    See post #3.

    Rooms often can be booked back to back, but not offers with other stuff (food, freeplay, etc)

    Call the hotel you want and see what they will do for more nights.

    Ok thank you.

    I have no other offer like freeplay, etc so would just trying to book my Mirage stay over Harrahs be the way to go?

    I haven't been able to book 2 back to back MLife rooms using comps before. I didn't push very hard but VIP services told me about the 72 hour rule and said she couldn't book my stay because I was already booked at another Mlife hotel.

    The Mirage pool is great and I'd stay there over NYNY.

    If the first comp is only a room (nothing else), book that. Then call the other hotel and ask for just a room for the following dates. You may have better luck that way.
