We usually stay at the Mirage. Primarily for the great location on the strip. The restaurant choices are good and varied, staff is friendly and location is generally clean. The rooms are very nice and clean and I think the price is good. I enjoy the variety of games and shows. Sometimes Mirage can be very crowded with conventions and so forth, but this time it was fine. You also don't get an abundance of noisy, drunk, early 20s running the halls like you sometimes see at say New York, New York or Harrahs. Not that people can't have a good time, that is what Vegas is for. Just not the atmosphere I want. Mirage is great upper middle hotel. I would never pay for Bellagio or Wynn for example.
