Advantages Centrally Located, Great Views, It's In Las Vegas
Vegas Virgins? NO WAY! My husband and I have about 14 trips to Las Vegas between the two of us. So, when we decided to use some air mile points for a quick trip to Las Vegas we decided to try and stay somewhere we had not stayed before. It was going to be a short trip, only 4 nights. So, we decided we could splash out on something more than a regular room. In the end, we decided on a Petite Suite at The Mirage.~Booking~
When we go to the states, we always book our own arrangements. In the United States, most of the time the cost is per room. However, package holidays in the UK charge you per person and the room ends up costing you A LOT more that it costs them!
With is in mind we went to www.mirage.com and did our booking directly with them. The website is easy to navigate. By clicking on HOTEL, you have the ability to look at the different room choices with 360 degree views. Click on Hotel Promotions to see if there are any specials during the times you are wanting to book. Then, you can go to Hotel Reservations and put in your dates that you want to stay. Room choices available will come up with cost per night and total cost. Please remember that tax is not included in these prices. Add 8% for the tax. If you are not set in your dates and can move it a few days or weeks, have a look at the prices. You will find that prices can vary widely. It is also best to book in as far in advance as possible. You are able to cancel up to 48 hours before your arrival date. So, if the prices go down, you can book on your partners name and then cancel the first ones. If prices go up, well, you saved loads of money. We booked in July 2006 for April 2007. We got the suite for $300 per night. I kept checking prices and they steadily rose in those 9 months until the same suite cost $1,200 per night!!!! So, we were glad to have booked when we did. Also, be aware that ALL hotels in Las Vegas increase their prices for Friday and Saturday nights. So, if you are wanting a quick trip, plan it for a Sunday to Thursday.
The booking of the room was simple and quick. Reservations were made and confirmation emails sent within 15 minutes!
I had some questions about the Royal Service that came with the Petite Suite. I rang and the phone was answered within 2 rings. The woman who helped me was very nice and answered all my questions quickly.~Check In~
It is stated that check in is at 3 PM. Our flight landed at 11:45 am and we were at the hotel for 12:45 pm. We weren't sure if we would be able to check in or not. Upon arrival, we noticed that there were 20 people checking in people and there were no more than 3 people in line to be checked-in in any given line. There was also a Mirage employee moving people into lines for most efficiency. In our line there was a couple being checked-in when we arrived and one couple in front of us. Within 15 minutes we were being tended to. Our names were taken and we were quickly told that our room was ready. After a 10 hour flight, we were happy about that.
