    First timer at the Mirage. Picked up 2 nights comped yesterday, weekend too (10/9-11) through MYVEGAS !!! Just paying resort fee ($88), but saving $498 on 2 nights! (I'll Take it) Looking for pros and cons ( what floor / room to request that's a RESORT TWO QUEEN.) Would be for 2 - 30 year women (2 of our daughters, or our son and future daughter in law) since wifey and I are booked for 7 straight days at Bally's.

    Thanks in advance

    Just an FYI, that will be tight quarters for 4 people. The bathroom specifically is very small. Door barely clears the toilet. It's like a Motel 6 bathroom with marble.
    If you do choose Mirage, a high floor with a view of the pool is ideal.

    If possible, have a look at Delano or Mandalay Bay. See if MyVegas has any rewards for those nights. The rooms are larger and bathrooms are much better. Delano specifically is a true suite with a separate bedroom and an additional half bath.

    We've always had good luck with a pool view room. We like that you can see down the Southern part of the strip, and many times besides the views of the strip and pool, there's a nice view of the dolphin's swimming if you look to the right of the pool.

    I think the room itself is fine for 2 but the bathroom IS very small, esp for 2 people. Resort Tower rooms have double sinks and a separate tub and shower, I think the rest of the space is comparable.

    No one knows for sure whats gonna be open in October or whenever. Heck Vegas may shut down AGAIN by October . But if they ARE, then I have a free room. If they aren't then I'm gonna go with Plan B!

    If they’re not opposed to sleeping in the same bed I’d try to upgrade to a tower room. One king bed bigger bathroom and separate elevators. The elevators alone make it worth a little extra money

    There are a few 2 queen tower rooms, at least worth asking for. And yes, the bathroom is small, but up to you if that actually matters (doesn't to me, but I know it does to a lot of folks).

    Got a note from my host that they're targeting August 1, although of course subject to change.

    Having stayed in those rooms, agreed on the bathroom being small. The rooms are very nice, but Mirage being an older property, there just isn't a ton of space in the rooms overall. I've had the pool view and the Strip view (facing Venetian, etc.), and slightly prefer the pool view, but view hasn't ever been a huge priority for me.

    One thing to try to check on, in addition to whether they're open in the first place, is what the restaurant situation is going to be like. Lots of properties have a very limited selection with very limited hours, so if staying on property is important to you, it's something to keep in mind. As an Aria fan, I wouldn't stay there if I was going for vacation, because most of the restaurants I like are either still closed, or only open for dinner.

    The regular 2 queen does have a smallish bathroom by strip standards with a tub/shower combo and a single sink if that is important to your daughters.

    A slight upgrade to a tower king (shared bed for two) does have a larger bath with separate walk in shower, tub, and 2 sinks easier to navigate, if that is important. Plus has separate elevators for floors 24/25. The few 2 queen rooms in the tower are hard to get in normal times, but you might get lucky...

    A pool view is my favorite, then the volcano view.

    My host toLd me August 1st opening but things could change.

    Sounds like a fun family trip :)

    Like others have said, I prefer the Pool view to the Volcano view. I have had both at Mirage and either is fine. The Tower rooms (24/25) would be preferable, due to the larger bathroom and separate elevator. But they are an upgrade. If your daughters are flexible, that room is fine.

    That room is fine, as others said. We stayed in that room w/3 of us in that same age range and it was fine. I don't even remember the bathroom which means it probably didn't really make an impression. Agree pool view is best.

    Overall this is my favorite myVegas room I've stayed in. The only drawback as others have mentioned, the bathroom is small. Similar to a Flamingo FAB room if you've happened to stay in one of those.

    Thanks one and all for the feedback so far. My children are low maintenance and as the case with me, when they are the room there are 90% likely to be snoring. Bathroom size will not be an issue for them Just hoping that Vegas is open come October!!

    I have never stayed at the Mirage so what would you all compare it to? I assume its nothing like the Bellagio but other than the Bellagio we have stayed at Luxor and Excalibur so would I be correct in believing it is somewhere in between the Bellagio and Luxor?

    Luxor is where we normally stay since I can get 4 nights comped and no resort fees plus we get f&b credit and free play in the casino.

    Luxor is ok, we normally stay in the East tower because the east and west towers are newer are more recently renovated than the Pyramid rooms. In each of the towers there are 8 elevators, so waiting has never been an issue for us. If you get a room in one of the towers you will want to ask for a higher floor, we made the mistake of doing mobile check in and we got a room on the 3rd floor with a lovely view of the HVAC unit which you could hear running through the window. Went to the front desk and were moved without an issue. Most rooms are around 400 or so square feet. Rooms a pretty good and the beds are fairly comfortable. Rooms do not have a fridge but one can be rented.

    This last trip we stayed in one of the Pyramid King Suites with the huge soaking tub in the room next to the bed and window, when I say huge it is designed to easily hold 2 adults and its right next to the window so its really relaxing looking out at the Vegas skyline. Pyramid rooms have the look and feel as if they have not been updated in many years, I honestly don't know how long but if I had to guess I would well over 10 and maybe 15 years. Even with the soaking tub in the main room they still have a traditional shower in the bathroom. Don't know the average room size since we only have stayed in the Pyramid Corner King Suite and it over 800sf. Bed was nice and seemed to be an upgrade from the beds in the towers. Our room did have a fridge which was really nice. Elevators will depend on which floor you are on, they have elevators in each of the 4 corner of the pyramid, our elevator was 1B I think and it serviced floors 23-30 if I remember correctly. So I guess each of the elevators service 8 floors or so.

    Luxor Restaurants we don't know much about other than the Buffet (closed, you're not missing anything) and Public House was pretty good, kind of a sports bar restaurant. We did want to try Tender Steakhouse this last visit but it was still closed due to the virus I guess. Casino is not really big compared to other's on the strip. Usually in the evening they will have 3 or so Craps tables and Roulette tables open. And about 10 other tables with Blackjack, stud poker, Pai Gow poker and whatever else.

    Wow. Thanks a ton Barcuss. I am curious ( maybe this question is sort of silly). But have you ever rinse Ok the diagonal elevator ( I forget what’s it called)? If so, can you see any part of the casino from the elevator; is a wall or 2 glass? I’ve always been curious what it would be like to go up once in one of those. I wish I could remember the name. Heck , although 2 of my children would be staying there, I’d go ( after I check them) up the elevator just to see what it feels like

    Thanks again

    The elevator in the pyramid is a different experience. It is completely enclosed with walls so no you can't see out of the elevator during the ride up but any floor you get off at except for the top couple of floors you can look over the wall and see the down plus where each elevator stops at a floor the have floor to ceiling glass and you can look over there also. The ride in general really depends on the elevator, some would shimmy and shake more than others and I could see a person with a sensitive stomach getting a little sea sick but like I said it really depends on the elevator how smooth the ride is. Also the elevators are very slow or at least seem that way, I guess it could be that for an elevator to move between floors at an angle is more distance to travel than if it were going straight up.
