    Our son recently moved out to LV with his girlfriend. He is wanting to propose soon on a balcony overlooking the strip. The budget isn't huge, it needs to be affordable. They've just graduated college and would rather spend the bulk of their money on a house and wedding etc..... OR do you have any other fabulous locations to suggest for this in LV?

    The best place for me would be the Cosmopolitan balconies that face the Bellagio fountains. It’s more pricey, but the memories and photos there would be worth it.

    Perhaps a fellow board member could also volunteer their “free room for a companion” if they are a platinum member and staying there at the same time...

    Most of the strip hotels don’t actually have a balcony you can step outside —just a view through a window.

    In terms of affordable, Cosmo is his best option. Terrace suite at MGM would be better, but that's more money. If he wants a cheaper option, drive out to Red Rock and propose at one of the overlooks that peers down on the Vegas valley

    Not a balcony, but across from the main valet is a kind of little Bellagio Fountain viewing area. Most people have no idea that it is there so you are usually alone. You would have the backdrop of the Bellagio Fountain, Cromwell, High Roller, and if I remember correctly a pretty good view of the Eiffel Tower.

    Why not propose from the Eiffel Tower itself?

    Not on the strip, but not too far... the Embassy Suites at the convention centre have a terrace suite which is huge compared to just about any balcony you'd get elsewhere... and it has a view of the strip from the right angles.

    Not too expensive... I think you can get this for less than $300 on a weeknight. Free breakfast and cocktail hour too.

    Another thought, what about in the High Roller (Assuming it will be open again)?

    Table 56 at the Eiffel Tower restaurant is a pretty popular spot for this purpose. You can arrange to have it specifically in your reservation and for obvious reasons it’s the most popular table in the whole place.

    Considering the only cost would be dinner and drinks (which they’d likely be paying for anyway), this could be a good bet if you can secure the exact table.

    The High Roller is open again.

    It does depend on the budget. For example, you can do a big proposal thing on the terrace at Bellagio for about $1k. If you want to do it from your own terrace room, then I'd second the recommendation of Cosmo, but that can get pricey, and so you might wind up about the same getting price by doing a Bellagio ceremony and a cheaper hotel.

    Ooh, that is a good call. Or the Skyfall terrace. If we're talking restaurants, Picasso at Bellagio is pretty great, too (though they're not open yet, I don't think).

    Also depends a bit on timing, Mandalay isn't open until the beginning of July, and it's not clear when Paris is opening.

    Eiffel tower seems confined and somehow unromantic (is that a word??) Although the view is good.

    Skyfall has a very open feeling compared to the foundation room, which has arguably a better view but seems much more confined.

    View from the Skyfall lounge at night. Free to take the elevator up there. Drinks pricey but not mandatory and a much better view than this picture captures.

    If he chooses a public venue, have him give the staff a heads up beforehand and I'm sure they will help him make it very special.

    Foundation room is a great spot. I may be a little biased, I got married there...

    If he wants a hotel room with a view - those Cosmo rooms are fabulous. If he just wants a view of the strip, I'd recommend contacting Rivea to see if he can arrange a table outside on the patio. Or, a slighlty cheaper option, Skyfall lounge for a round of drinks. Eiffel Tower restaurant is great too, but I think the view of the strip is better at Rivea/Skyfall.
