Dates: August 8-10. Situation: Going to Denver August 1-8. Flying into Vegas for a solo trip for 2 nights. Where or what do I do? So, I am a primarily CET player. I have free comped rooms (Linq, Harrahs, Flamingo, Bally's, and Rio). I've stayed at pretty much all of them except the Rio (don't wanna stay off strip) and Linq. I have heard Linq is nice. But when I go to Vegas, I like to experience new things. So if I was going to stay at a CET property, I would stay at Linq. This situation came up because I really, really, really hate paying resort fees, especially if nothing has been "new" to me. Thus, I came up with this idea - I have 215k points in MyVegas. I can stay at Monte Carlo (I can access both MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay pools) for 65k points. I can stay at MGM (no access to other pools) for 110k points. Or the Mirage (125k points). I also get free play at any of the aforementioned hotels for 56k points. Then I can use the rest of my points towards food. I am a special education teacher, so I want to end my summer with a bang - thus Colorado-Vegas-Home. I just want to primarily relax, swim, eat some free food, play very minimal this time (unless I save up big). Basically, a mental vacation from everything before the school year starts. Any suggestions for the Monte Carlo/MGM Grand/Mirage points? There's so much more details, but I think you got the gist of it. I think MGM Resorts will win over CET for this trip just because of the $25 free play and free buffets via MyVegas. At least my "resort fees" will go to SOMETHING. Basically, becomes a wash (if not, a "profit" via the value of the free offers). Thoughts?
