I'm currently scoping out a possible fellas trip for the end of August (could be any time in August, really, but we're wanting to be in town for the Mayweather fight, just for the atmosphere). In all of the variations of dates I've tried, the Mirage is coming up as a surprisingly cheap place to stay. Like, cheaper than Excalibur. That doesn't seem right. I'm aware that Mirage is an older resort, and not nearly as glamorous as it used to be. I'm also aware that room rates are offset by a $39 resort fee per night. But given that other hotels to which that also applies (such as Monte Carlo and PH) are costing much more, something doesn't quite seem right here. Is there something I don't know about, such as asbestos/bed bug infestation/some wild and crazy thing that always seems to happen there like frat boys doing backflips off the parking garage? Please let me know. I'm wanting to propose this plan to the boys soon and if there's any reason I shouldn't book Mirage for us, knowing about that would be excellent. Side-note, we're a group of four mid-20's guys... do you think we'll be digging the pool scene there, or should we be looking elsewhere for a good time in the pool? TIA!
