    Need more information such as budget, etc. my recommendation would be they get their own rooms though or they can go with multiple rooms with two queen beds if they don’t mind sharing. Alao, could do one suite and the rest rooms so they have a place to meet up and party together. Cosmopolitan would normally be my recommendation but it really depends on the budget.

    I've been to a couple of parties at Flamingo, specifically at Margaritaville. It's usually good, but do NOT have a joint bachelor/bachelorette party; there will be a drunken argument. It's got a great location, plenty of food and drink options. Also perhaps consider Elara, which is also really good, connected to PH, and very accommodating of groups.

    Budget is key. I cannot imagine a better place for that sort of thing than a fountain view at Cosmo.

    7 young ladies and 1 or 2 bathrooms? Yeah, get multiple rooms.

    In a perfect bachelorette/bachelor party world, that person gets a suite, which is the rally point, who may or may not share a room with 1 to 3 of their friend they are really close to and the rest can pair off or get their own single rooms.

    If they are dead set on sharing the same suite, 44inarow's suggestion on Elara is a great start, otherwise it depends on their budget and March NCAA basketball may be driving those prices higher.

    Ideally, I'd suggest in this order:
    Cosmo
    Aria
    Wynn
    Mirage
    Planet Hollywood
    Paris
    MGM Grand
    Mandalay Bay (mainly for the pool)
    Flamingo (but if only going the 'we got more money for booze than rooms' route)

    As with everything Vegas, budget is going to be the primary constraint. Cosmo has a lot of things that would be very appealing to a group of young ladies in that age range provided they have the budget for it.
    1. Very popular day/night club although I don’t think the day club component will be open in March.
    2. Excellent and trendy dining spots.
    3. Very Instagram worthy bar with fancy cocktails (chandelier)
    4. Balconies with awesome views if you get the right rooms.
    5. Very popular with the partying young and hip crowd.
    6. Perfect center strip location from which to venture to other strip casinos
    7. Availability of cheap (relative to vegas strip) and quick food options (Block 16 and secret pizza)
    8. Walking distance to best show in town (Absinthe) and one of the top clubs in town in addition to the Cosmo nightclub Marquee(Omnia at Caesar’s Palace).
    9. Multiple pool options with the best cabana deal on the strip (may be too cold for this in March but Cosmo is the only strip hotel left that I know of that does a F&B minimum spend instead of a straight cabana rental fee.)

    If going the suite plus single room option the wraparound suites are a pretty good option with plenty of seating and space as well as two full bathrooms rather than tbe 1.5 bath options that many of the other 1 bedroom suites have.

    Also, Bellagio penthouse suites are enormous, although a little dated, but they also have two full baths, one has a shower and one has a bathtub. Bellagio is not nearly as happening a place for the younger crowd as Cosmo is though.

    In 2022, the NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament starts on Tuesday, March 15. This is a BIG deal in Las Vegas. The busiest days during the first week will be Thursday, March 17 through Sunday, March 19. If she has her heart set on a date in later March, you should check it against the schedule of games here: https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-men/article/2022-march-madness-schedule

    It really depends how close they are and how much privacy they want. Thinking of myself at that age, I would want to keep it as cheap as possible and in the middle of all the fun. I certainly didn't want my own room and privacy, more like pyama party time, doing make-up together, borrowing each other's clothes and talking in bed. Just girl stuff.

    Considering all this, I would say Flamingo, 2 connecting rooms with each 2 queens.

    But... in case they are all friends of the bride, but not friends of each other, maybe even strangers, then I would suggest each has (and pays for) their own room. With so many rooms I would also suggest Flamingo, because it is very affordable, fun casino, next to Margaritaville (as @44inarow suggested and me +1), best location on the Strip in the middle of all the fun.

    In a perfect world I would go with what SHOCK suggested, but in this world not so much. Because girls can get jealous and mean and every girl at the party expects to be THE best friend and no one wants to be excluded. But maybe I see it all wrong, I'm certainly not the average girl and also not American, so what do I know.

    Sounds like a lot of fun and I'm sure we all will be a lot more concerned with it all than the girls themselves lol.

    my room at the Mansion would be perfect for a bachelorette party weekend! I can get a 3 bedroom that can fit everybody!

    Personally I think they should start with what they want to do, where they want to do it, and their budget, and the choice will flow naturally from there.

    I would get the best star hotel as possible. The chance of the bride hugging a toilet is very high... So might as well hug a nice one.

    If budget is the driving force, go with Flamingo or Planet Hollywood. Good location and young crowd that likes to have fun. Get one large room for the Bachorlette that has either a separate living room or at least a living room space, and then let her share with 1 or 2 others and the rest get their own rooms or pair up. If budget isn't the concern, get a Cosmo Wraparound Terrace with a connecting 2 Q, lots of balcony space and room to party, plus the location can't be beat.

    3 separate rooms will probably end up cheaper than a mega suite hosting 6-7 person

    I think Cosmo is a great choice. If there is any flexibility on dates, march madness weekends will be very expensive.

    Early April would be better timing when the pool parties are all running.

    March will be iffy for any pool activity. Avoid the tournament if possible. Darkhorse might be the new Palms which should be open by then and begging for parties like this. (just off-strip of course)

    Budget is key.

    Going to a bachelor party at Planet Hollywood March 24-28, 2022. 10 guys and we are doing Ultra Hip 2 Queens non smoking 2 to a room.

    Southwest releases their flights Sept. 16th for all flights through May or June so they may also want to look at vacation deals to Vegas with the air and hotel combined. Would probably be cheaper booking directly with the hotel but just a thought.

    Personally I have always enjoyed Harrah's as it's centrally located.

    Might want to have the girls sign up for a players card and see if by chance they can get a lower rate vs booking w/o one. It's free and doesn't hurt to try.

    If the budget is on the low end - both Linq and Flamingo have bunk bed rooms, easily fit 6-8 people. But also only 1 bathroom. A couple individual rooms at either Flamingo, Linq, PH, etc would be good.
    High end - well just pick a suite or a couple rooms based on where they want to hang out

    As mentioned, don't know your budget, but whatever you book at Cosmo would get you tier points on spend,
    so totally sounds like a trip you could get to Gold on, if you're looking for future comped rooms.
    then again you may not want to book it all and become a debt collector.
    A wraparound and some dinners would prob do it.. IIRC its $5k spend.
    It does really seem like a wraparound flex event.

    I'd at least put yourself or maybe your daughter also in Cosmo to have a fountain view room to take selfies at. :poke:
    If you get a 1 BR, a bff maybe could crash on the couch and there's a BR door.
    IIRC there's even a 1 BR with a 2nd bathroom, someone else can name that room.
