Advantages Fantastic location, very reasonable
Disadvantages Pool a bit busy, didnt win at the casino!
My recent holiday took me to many places but my stay in Vegas was unique and one of the most fun parts of the trip. We stayed at the Mirage, right int eh heart of the Las Vegas 'strip' and Im very pleased we chose it.Vegas hotels are completely over the top, thats the whole point of Vegas, and the Mirage in no exception.
Some facts about this mega hotel before I begin:
It has 30 floors
There are 3,049 rooms
There is a tiger sanctuary, dolphin habitat and a 20,000-gallon aquarium with sharks and sting rays
It employs 7,500 people
It has a 1,500 capacity theatre
All mind boggling, and there is a whole lot more which ill try to cover (a difficult feat!)
We arrived by car and drove into the opulent valet parking area. A porter took our bags and someone else parked our car. Completely stress free!Check In
The check in area which just has to be seen to be appreciated. It is huge (and it has to be to serve 3000 rooms!) and behind the desks is a massive aquarium with thousands of beautiful tropical fish. I saw sharks and sting rays. I just wanted to stare at it for hours but we were quickly checked in and it was time to move on! We were offered an upgrade to one of the 4 bedroom penthouse apartments on the 30th floor for 100 dollars a night, but we declined the offer!Going Up... and Up.. and Up!
We were on the 26th floor! Fortunately there are banks of lifts (or elevators as they call them) serving different floors so the lifts were pretty quick. When people get in the lifts speakers start blurting out adverts for the countless restaurants and bars in the hotel.Our room
Our room was very nice. It was big with two double beds (we only needed one!) and a fantastic view. The style is a bit twee, but I quite liked it. There was a massive TV (switched onto the Mirage's own TV station!), a well stocked mini bar and a fantastic view of the Vegas strip, the rest of the huge dusty city and the beautiful mountains behind. It was spotlessly clean, and had (overly) effective airconditioning. I felt a bit like Nikki from big brother! (sorry)The bathroom was pretty small which was a shame, but it was clean and had some great brnaded soaps and lotions to use.
