    Can anyone offer any advice about how the pool at TI is? I'll be staying there On a Sunday-Thursday and was wondering if I'll need to get there super early to get a lounge chair? Thanks....

    I always found the pool to be wet and a bit cold in the Summer time, though that might be because it's REALLY hot outside. Don't forget the flip flops as that concrete gets HOT!

    Seriously though, the pool there is nice, nothing special. They have/had a DJ playing but the music was blaring loud. Then again, we were away from the actual pool itself. I seem to recall a lot of lounge chairs available at all times of the day too.

    The pool is good for what it is, every time I have gone it is a pretty festive party atmosphere. There have always been chairs available to sit in, and the service staff was always great in my experiences. If you have a large group and plan on lounging at the pool all day, I would look at a cabana. It was like a 2k minimum spend, but if you are going to be at the pool all day drinking and eating (if you have a big group) it would pay for itself to get a cabana. You can also play games like beer pong, cornhole, etc.

    Wow. I don't recall it being anywhere near that high. But it has been about 5 years since we had a TI cabana.

    I was just there the first week of May on a Tuesday and here is the view of the pool from our hotel room.

    I wandered down there about 15 or 20 minutes before it opened and was about 10th in line. By the time it opened they were lined up all the way down a very long hallway so I would suggest getting there early and getting a seat. Throw a towel and a book on it or something.

    You enter on the right of the photo by that stripped overhang where you grab your towels.

    That area at the top of the photo filled up pretty fast. It was getting full sun all day long. No mercy.

    The bathrooms are also in that back right hand corner.

    We sat on the bottom left side. The two outer seats where the white rope is. Those chairs are $10 a piece and are yours for the day. You buy them at that booth when you come in, first come first serve. There are more chairs in the lower part of the photo that are hidden under that white over hang. We did like coming and going and for $20 it was worth it. After we came back from lunch two Japanese teenagers took our seats and we gave them the boot. We also witnessed a very drunk lady in her 60's trying to steal peoples seats while they were in the pool. Funny.

    I say we didn't need them but the place did fill up at certain times during the day.

    The DJ Booth was not operating while we were there but they were pumping Top 40 music so I brought my headphones which I recommend if you don't like terrible music.

    Damn right the pavement is hot. The bar is over where you come in as well and my feet were burning just walking across there and it was about 92 that day.

    We spent the next two day at the Mirage pool and found this one a little bit wilder and not so classy. The 20 something mother in a bikini getting her kid to light her cigarettes for her as she drank and chain smoked in the pool all day, the lumberjack and long haul truck driver lesbians that were tongue kissing each other all day in front of the kids (nobody should be going at it with tongues flapping over the place in a public pool) and the tattooed 6-5 guy that passed out on the pavement in the mid heat by the hot tub and people were getting their pictures taken with him.

    This was our view from the hot tub side. A little farther back from the main pool area. But we could take in the people watching pretty good.

    I was there about 5 years ago. Enjoyed it. Not a bad pool and I liked the hot tub portion of it. Other than that, it was not memorable. Just enjoyable. Two seperate categories.

    The 2k cabana was during March Madness, where everything in Vegas including taking a breath of air was uncharged.

    I'm sure the rates any other time of the year (pool season) are much much more managable
