We stayed at Mandalay Bay for one night on March 2nd. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. The casino is very open and airy and probably the least smoky of any casino I have been in in Vegas. Once we figured out the layout to the parking garage it was very easy to get through. The room was amazing. We were upgraded to a strip view and it was a fantastic view right up the strip on the 15th floor. The rooms are nice, modern and the beds heavenly comfortable!! The only thing I did not like is how close the bathroom is to the bed, but that is just me. I have no complaints whatsoever. Check in was easy and smooth and our room was ready at 10am! Mandalay Bay is my new favorite hotel in Vegas. Only downfall is how far off the strip it is, but it's such a fabulous place that I didn't care at all.
