LV Hotels - First Timer

If you had a choice would you stay at the Venetian, Mandalay Bay, Palazzo, Palms, or Mirage?

Just looking for a warm getaway from this frigid NE winter. Hubby has been to Vegas years ago. The Palms is the cheapest at $471 for 3 nights and the Venetian and Palazzo are the highest at $779 for 3 nights.

I would really like to see some of the Vegas sights, sit in the sun by a pool, eat some good food, and maybe see a show. Not into the gambling aspect.

If there are other good hotel recommendations besides the ones listed, I'm willing to hear. I just did a quick perusal for known hotels at a decent price.

Thanks in advance.

I would recommend Mandalay Bay! Beautiful rooms (large bathrooms w a TV and a hug TUB) Just a great hotel with great ammenities. Also, they have the walkways that allow for you to go into the Luxor. Only down fall, not a prime location on the strip...far away from the strip ceneter.

When are you looking to go?
I know your husband has been before, but have you?

Of those hotels you listed, I would choose the Palazzo. It's the newest of them and all of the rooms are suites.

The casino is not that big or overwhelming. You only need to walk a straight short shot through the casino to get to the room elevators.

You are connected to the Venetian and all of the restaurants and shops there. It is more centrally located on the strip than say Mandalay Bay (my second choice). The Palms is just too far off strip and has a younger crowd.

Wynn has mid week prices for $119 a night and it truly is a 5* hotel..
Love the Palms but its off the strip..Palazzo is new and new is key in Vegas.
All other hotels are fine too.

You might want to look at the new Encore as well (at the Wynn). I've been seeing ads for low introductory rates.

When are you planning to go? I was at the Mandalay Bay in early December and the pool was closed. I liked the hotel but I think next time I'd prefer to be more center Strip, so the Venetian/Palazzo would be great in that respect. The Wynn/Encore is a couple blocks further north but when I went up there to check it out, it still felt more in the center of things to me than Mandalay Bay.

If you are planning to go any time soon, Las Vegas is NOT that warm right now. High there today is 63 degrees and 48 over night. Sounds a bit chilly for basking by the pool.

crefloors - I understand what you are saying. That still beats 6 degrees this AM and, if we're lucky, 22 degrees this afternoon.

We were thinking of going in mid-March....would the temps be more moderate then?

We have since had a family emergency, so I'm not even sure this trip is still on the table.....but I would like to hope so.

The Palazzo is the same price as the Venetian, so it would also work. Thanks for all the comments so far.
