    We are staying at the Mirage for the first time using the Crown and Anchor offer. In the past we have stayed at Mandalay Bay, Luxor, and most of the CET properties including Caesars. I am wondering if I should just bite the bullet and reserve the Tower King or just wait to see if I can get a free upgrade, we are Gold with Mlife and have had luck upgrading. We have 2 separate reservations, one is for a Friday and Saturday the other for Sunday and Monday in order to maximize the Resort credit.
    I also have questions about the pool cabanas. We definitely want to have on for one day, but I'm having a hard time getting pricing. I tried calling but was on hold so long I finally hung up. We would probably get it on Monday, does anyone know the pricing. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Michele14-we have stayed at Mirage at least 6 times, most recently 2 weeks ago and have never gotten anything but a view upgrade, even with the $20 trick. Here's good luck for you getting one and as with everything YMMV. By the way hope you love Mirage as much as we do.

    Since your first 2 nights are weekend nights, I'd bite the bullet and spring for the Tower King - weekend upgrades are harder to get even at gold level. If you end up with a standard king due to unavailability you will kick yourself. Standard King Bathrooms at Mirage are small and bath/shower combo. The Tower King has separate shower and tub and a little larger - worth every dollar, IMO. Separate elevators for floors 24/25.

    Sorry, no help with the Cabana. The Mirage pool is really nice!

    We have stayed at the Mirage more times than I care to count. :D IMO I would bite the bullet and go for the Tower King, Much nicer room over the "standard view room" Besides as stated before, Chances of getting an upgrade on a weekend are slim at best. Mirage cabana prices are on the high side and the only way to reserve one is to be a high roller As most are held for the big players by their hosts. We have stayed in a Penthouse Suite fr7 nights on 4 different stays and each time I have tried to reserve one I was told they would put my name on a list and if one became available they would call us. We have never gotten a call. Good luck if you are able to get one.
    P.S. Enjoy your stay, Mirage has one of the best pools in Vegas.

    Love Mirage. Was my home base for many years. Never had a problem getting a cabana mid-week. We would just go to the pool and get it day of - haven't booked one ahead. We always picked the same one - there is a set of 3 set back a bit from the pool. Gives it a private feeling and there was lots of shared space and extra seating in that area. Here are some pics.

    If you don't have 6 - 8 people in your group that would be using the cabana I would just reserve 2 seats at the Oasis pool. Info can be found on their website - it's a good sized pool off to the side of the main pool with padded chairs and umbrellas, dedicated cocktail/food server, and only Oasis guests have access to the pool. A few times during the day they will come around with special lemonades and other treats. Prices may vary depending on day/season but I believe the highest I paid was $50/ seat in August - it's the only way I'd ever do the Mirage pool again.

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I finally was able to speak to someone at the Mirage - costs for my dates were $450 to $550, which to me is on the high side. We've had cabanas at Mandalay Bay and they were $250-$275. I think we will just get the reserved seats at the Oasis Pool. We ate staying at Aria for the first 2 nights, and we'll get the cabana there as it was only $250.
    Going to book the Tower King, I just don't want to take a chance of not getting that room
