The MGM Mirage is located in the middle of the strip and strikes a nice balance between location, price and amenities. Since my Hyatt Diamond status gave me MGM MLife Platinum status, I was offered an MLife rate of just $91 on a recent Friday and Saturday, typically expensive weekend nights. Other properties on the strip were upwards of $130 to $250 per night so the MLife rate was a great perk.
This property opened in 1989 and exhibits the typical design of that era: a themed entry, in this case a lush jungle filled with birds and tropical foliage, and then a walk through the casino to reach your room. However, don’t let the era it was built in fool you, the rooms have been upgraded and are well appointed. In addition, there are a large number of new restaurants that have been opened in the past few years. It feels like a new hotel.
I was assigned a Resort King on a mid floor. These rooms are large, with a king size bed and excellent pillows that were soft but supportive. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Two important points in Vegas!
The MGM Mirage bathroom has a combo tub and shower along with hotel branded amenities. I was happy to see a curved shower rod to keep the shower curtain away from the tub area and provide more room while showering.
With it’s central location, good price and close proximity to other casinos on the strip MGM Mirage is an excellent option for your next trip to Las Vegas. I hopped on the train that connects the casino to Treasure Island and from there it’s a short walk across the street to the Venetian. The hotel is in walking distance of Caesars and Harrah’s. Other properties like Bellagio and Wynn are only a little farther up the road making a walk or cab ride easy.
