    Hello!

    Been to Vegas a few times and my wife and I even got married at Mandalay Bay for one of the Sunset weddings on the beach. We had 71 people show up from all over and had a blast. We've tried to make it at least once a year (even when my wife broke her leg as we drove cross country to get there) but now we have two kids and that has cut into our Vegas time (which is worth it). We will be out celebrating some retirements in early June. Still debating where to stay, as our slot hostess is at Cosmo now or should we stick with a Total Rewards property (where we can get decent rates) or go with where the retirees are staying (Wynn).

    Either way June can't come soon enough!!!!

    Welcome & congrats on the return trip! Where are you most comfortable staying? If the rest of the group is at the Wynn....do you have a car to meet up with them when needed? Are there any budget considerations?
     
    Sooooo ready!

    Well that's the thing. We were regulars at the Palms, but want to stay on the strip. Our slot hostess is now at Cosmo, but anytime we looked at coming out rates were just way too much. We did stay at Flamingo summer of 2015. (I have no plans of going back). Wynn right now rates seem rather high, $220/night where Cosmo without even talking to our hostess yet (She was slammed with some stuff so I wasn't worried) was $176/night. I guess I'm used to good weekday rates at the Palms, but am willing to pay more for good experience.

    No we won't have a car, everybody will probably do their own thing so I'm not too concerned about that. We would just grab a cab or Uber it.

    Looking forward to that trip!

    NICE! Can you give my husband some pointers on shopping? I would love a trip to Vegas more than another gift card. :wink2:

    It'll cost you!

    It's a trip to get away from the kids for a few days. It's been a long, but good, year.
