I'm headed back for the first time in a couple years. I'll be spending part of my time at a conference at the Sands but don't intend to stay at the Venetian. I have MyVegas rewards and am planning to stay at an MLife property... but which one? So the background. I'm a mid thirties guy and a low roller visiting solo. My first visit was about 12 years ago and I stayed West Wing at MGM. I didn't hate it. I know a lot of people do, but it was fine. My biggest issue was the walk felt like forever. I doubt it is true, but I swear it felt longer than getting to the casino from the Signature Tower 2. For conferences at the Sands, I use to stay at Sahara take the monorail. Then I stayed at Harrah a couple times for its easy access to the Sands. At other times I've stayed at Rio (it was pretty nice), Texas Station (not so much), and South Pointe (surprisingly decent). My last two trips I was doing a convention center convention and stayed at the Signature at MGM. Access to the Monorail was easy enough. Pretty good food choices at MGM. The room was as nice as staying at a Gaylord but at half the price. Tender at Luxor was awesome and reasonably accessible from MGM. I'm leaning towards staying either at MGM or back at the Sig but I'm not sure yet. I've never stayed in the Grand rooms at MGM, I don't intend to stay in the West Wing, but I may go Signature Tower. Gaming wise I am happy with low end Black Jack. I'll hit the slots some as well. Every Casino, though, seems to have a spot I can get comfortable except my visit to Bally's. That just never felt comfortable but nothing specific I could put my finger on. I don't do much pool time or utilize the spa (but I did like the in room jet tub). Conference at Sands. Prefer MLife for the MyVegas rewards. I don't have status with MLife right now other than that. Most likely destinations other than Sands are: Tender and 9 Fine Irishmen Outside of hitting those two restaurants, I'll likely try to find somewhere new (to me) to eat. I have a tendency to find a spot I like and just going back (so 3 straight stays at Sahara before they shut down, followed by 3 at Harrah's before trying an upgrade in room at Sig. because Rio had been so much nicer than Harrah). While there are advantages to a familar place, I wonder if I'm missing out. I've always stayed on the monorail side for the convenience of travel. Since I don't tend to stay at the Hotel with the conference, I don't rent a car, and the early morning trip to the conference is the weak point in my plan to stay in a different hotel. I'm trying to stay for an average price, before fees, of $200 a night (or less) starting April 17th. So I know there will be plenty opinions... what say ye?
