    Good morning everyone!

    Just a quick opinion question for all of you wonderful Vegas-phile that I was hoping ya'll could help me out with. I have enough points on MyVegas to redeem a free two night stay in December for either the Monte Carlo or the Luxor and I was wondering if you all could provide some insight as to which you prefer?

    1. I know that Monte Carlo is considered a higher "tiered" property as opposed to the Luxor, but I was wondering if the differences in rooms are significant? It might help to note that we'll probably be receiving "run of house" rooms and I know the Monte Carlo is currently going through renovations so I was also wondering if that would impact the quality of the rooms?

    2. Me and my girlfriend are "low-rollers" so in this case, I feel that Luxor fits our needs more (lower table limits) - I haven't really been inside the Luxor casino and I was wondering how the slot selection/casino floor feels in comparison to the Monte Carlo?

    Thanks in advance for your responses!

    Under normal circumstances I probably would have given the edge to Monte Carlo.
    Construction on the conversion to the new hotel has started though and some of the public areas are now closed at MC.
    The PUB is closed and all the shops.
    For this trip I suggest Luxor.

    If you have enough points opt for 2 nights at NYNY or Mirage if dates are available

    The luxor has a good selection of slots, table games , whatever you want. And if you don't like it you can leave to the next casino. The rooms aren't bad either.

    The pyramid rooms (what you'll probably get with the MyVegas reward) are in the process of being redone currently, so you might get lucky when you check in. Mandalay Bay shops are nearby which have some solid restaurants (along with everything else at MB).

    Wow, lesser of two evils here. I second the notion of trying to go NYNY on your reward if possible, failing that I have to agree with Nittany1, with MC transitioning/constructing I would go Luxor, towers if possible.

    Did I just recommend someone stay at the Lux?
