“Ah Las Vegas - This time with Kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2011

I'll say it here and now... I don't like Las Vegas. There, it's out in the open. My club days are long gone and I'm a cautious gambler. The thing is, I'm drawn to visit in the same way that i stare at traffic accidents, part horrified and part transfixed. This time we brought our kids to the scene. Not exactly the best stop for a family but it was a good end to our Grand Canyon and AZ travels.

So with that preamble, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my room at the Mirage down the long and never-ending corridor, was a pleasant oasis from the Strip. The rooms are modern and relatively large. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom, while small, was quite nice. The space was clean and bright and a nice get-away from the ring ching ding of the slots.

The Mirage location was great - right in the middle of the strip - which made walking or driving to a destination easy. The pool was the reason why I selected the Mirage for our family and in the end this was our biggest disappointment. I had hoped to find everyone still at the casinos at 10 AM but instead they all had the same idea as our family. Fortunately, while there wasn't a lounge chair to sit on, there was plenty of space in the pool for our kids to swim since the water was too cold for most adults.

Finally, we ate breakfast at the poolside (Paradise) cafe. Definitely not a bargain with Coffee prices higher than Starbucks, but it was a really good breakfast in a pleasant location, so I will recommend it. I cannot recommend the Carnagie Deli which I've eaten at in NY (the real one - not NYNY). The original is worth a trip but pass on this one.

Finally, we did gamble a bit at the Mirage and had some fun. I cannot comment on the quality of the gambling since I'm a self proclaimed and proud novice at the sport. I go to lose my money slow enough to get a drink. I'm $1 down this trip and up one grasshopper! My husband is up considerably plus two Sam Adams. He knows more - I suppose.

So, if you are heading to Vegas and want a cool location, this fits the bill.

Loved our recent stay at the Mirage. After reading reviews had mixed feelings, but we didn't encounter any issues. Front desk was very helpful and accomodating. Requested an adjoining room with friends and they worked with us to get us located close together and gave us a strip view at no additional charge. Knew from other reviews about the resort fee so wasn't surprised by that charge. Bellhop arrived with our luggage in about 3 minutes -- WOW! The room was nice and clean, and had one of the most comfortable beds I have ever encountered in a hotel. Had an issue with our room safe and it was fixed immediately. Loved the location, you can easily access Treasure Island, The Venetian, Palazzo, Caesar's and the Forum Shops within minutes. It is also located within a 5 minute walk of Imperial Palace which is a monorail stop. Only downfall was there is no "fast food" on site where you can grab a quick bite, but a Denny's and a McDonalds are located right across the street. The pool is beautiful, but was very crowded on Memorial Day Weekend. Saw a great band at BB Kings on Sunday night -- only $5 cover compared to $20 and up at other locations. Just wish we would have had better luck in the casino! Would definitely recommend.

When chosing a hotel we didnt know what to expect so just went with this one as it is one of the well known ones! And so so pleased we did! As with all the major hotels this one stands out on the strip and is full of spectacular scenary, inside and out! The lobby is striking with its huge rainforest style atrium! I had read reviews on here warning of huge queues at check in but we were pleasantly surprised and check in was very quiet! The lady at the front desk was very helpful and offered us a free room upgrade (with a better view) or for an extra $50 a night an upgrade to a one bedroom quite - which we took! We never imagined, however, how amazing the room would actually be. After all, we only paid an extra $50 a night! It was literally the best room I have ever stayed in. It had a huge living room, a bar, a dining area to seat 4 people, a massive bedroom, a bathroom, a dressing room, a seperate WC and a walk in wardrobe! It was bigger than some appartments I have seen!! It had three TVs alone! Oh and not forgetting the jacuzzi bath and shower big enough for two!

The rest of the hotel was just as fab, with lots of different restaurants to chose from, to suit all budgets and tastes. The dolphin encounter and white tiger habitat was fab and the pool excellent with non stop waitress service. The only downside was it was pretty busy with all the beds crammed next to one another but all part of the fun! The hotel was very busy and big but not too big you got lost. We visited all of the other major well known hotels and I definately preferred ours. Some of the others were 'too' big - so much so it wouldnt have felt as intimate at the same time as being in a Las Vegas resort as we did with the Mirage.

We only had one downside which was one of the young ladies at the concierge who made a massive mistake when checking us in for our flight 24hours before we had to fly home. A great service with them being able to check in and print boarding passes however she made too many assumptions, asked too few questions and ended up checking my husband and I into completely different areas of the plane! And was very unapologetic for it! The duty Manager, Ty, however was a shining star. He spent litereally hours on the phone for us (whilst we went out and enjoyed our last night) trying to rectify the problem and even comped us the phone charges and the last nights room upgrade charge. So really no complaints at all!

We wish we were still in Vegas, sipping Mojitos at the Rhumbar and when we get the chance to go back, will most definately be staying at the Mirage!!

Room Tip: Ask if there are any upgrades available!!

The hotel is conveniently located on the strip next to all the large casinos. The remodeled rooms are very nice, and service was great. Oh, and the volcanic water-fountain is gorgeous! Overall a very positive experience.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and were impressed with the quality of the rooms, and view! However, we visited other 'resort hotels' in Vegas, and found the Mirage to be more 'old school' casino/hotel, than some of the others which are diversifying to have a wider appeal. Having said that, we loved the erupting volcano show, brilliant!

The Mirage is a great central location for a Vegas trip! The Pool Area is like none other. You don't even realize you are in the middle of Las Vegas. However, the water is extremely cold! You can't enjoy it....To the Staff of Mirage - Warm it a bit - you have no idea how happy that will make the crowds! Yes, the "guests" are out in the pool "line" bright and early at 7:00 for an 8:00 am opening to get their prime spot, but do not fret, you can still find some areas if you go later in the afternoon - we did - due to the fact that alot of them head back to the hotel by 3:00 p.m.. The hotel itself is beautiful, the beds, pillows, rooms very comfortable. We had a problem with all the smokers in the Casino but that is due to the fact that we both wear contact lenses and suffer from allergies, etc. from the smoke. But overall, I would definitely return to the Mirage! ...and one final note...join the "M" Club...it's worth it!!!
