The Skinny

It may be a couple decades old but it all seems brand new and exciting as the Mirage Vegas Resort and Casino does a great job of keeping up with its newer neighbors on the Strip. With its tropical oasis theme, the Mirage can be a pretty fun place to wander around.  Watching the volcano erupt out front at night is VERY cool and not to be missed.

Room Quality:

Nice rooms. The Mirage Hotel Vegas rooms are average in size, but have good views and are well-appointed in rich dark tones, with some wood paneling and so much marble in the bathroom you'll think you fell into a quarry. The bedspreads feel expensive and so does the flat screen TV on the wall (they're almost impossible to sneak out when you leave - trust us). There is also an iPod dock in case you have that dance party urge. The bathrooms are small but with marble everywhere, even the walls. The Mirage Las Vegas rooms have separate showers and tubs, but both are small. They come equipped with hairdryers, irons, mini-bars (overpriced) and safes. Rooms also offer high-speed Internet if you are so inclined to go to Vegas and then spend time away from the city. Suites are enormous, with big plush couches, and if you have a ton of money, you can even get a two-bedroom suite. All rooms have robes for your relaxation. Or, if you're like us, wear on a late-night stroll down the Strip.

Service Quality:

Good. The Mirage Las Vegas makes a point of letting you know they have good service. Room service is excellent, and if you need extra towels, they come quickly.

What You Get Bottles of in the Bathroom:

All kinds of goop, including lotion and shampoo and conditioner. It's all laid out in a quaint little basket.

Clientele:

The Mirage Resort and Casino Las Vegas hosts a diverse mix of folks, from young Angelenos to middle-aged Ohioans, and all the way to old women from Phoenix.

How's the Pool?

The Mirage Las Vegas pool is pretty fancy and tropical. It's one of the best pools in town; the waterfall is cool, and you will see lots of attractive and wealthy people laying about. The biggest drawback is that the pool at the Mirage Hotel Vegas gets very crowded on weekends. Don't even think about sneaking in, unless you know some trick we don't. The pools are heated and open year-round. For the more adventurous among us (or at least the more voyeuristic) the Mirage Resort and Casino features Bare, a small DJ-equipped, top-optional pool area that costs extra for everyone, and a lot extra for the dudes on weekends.

Resort Fee:

Yes.  You get in room and property wide internet access, access to the fitness center, a daily newspaper, notary services, printed boarding pass, copies and faxes at the Business Services Center and unlimited local and toll-free calls.

Is it Worth It?

It might be an average hotel, but the Mirage does average really well. Spend an average amount of money and it'll definitely be worth it.

Table Games:

All the usual games like blackjack, craps, roulette, 3-card poker, Pai Gow and some oddball games. Blackjack is dealt with MGM Mirage's traditional rules.

Bet Minimums:

$10 and up - way up on weekends. If it's a busy time, like there's a big fight in town or a holiday weekend, you can expect to see very few tables lower than $25. Craps is the Strip standard 3x4x5x at the Mirage Resort and Casino. $2 for races, $5 for sports.

Machines:

The Mirage Las Vegas machines range from pennies to $500. There are very few full-pay video poker machines, and none for less than a dollar.

Cocktails?

Good. If being drunk in a classy joint is your goal, you've come to the right place.

Who Gets Comps?

Big shots. Expect to spend a lot of time betting black chips or more before the Mirage Las Vegas offers you anything to eat, and get out the big bucks if you want to work your way to one of their many varieties of room. The M Life slot club is meant to make you very loyal to the MGM casinos, hotels, restaurants, etc.

Number of TVs:

29 total TVs, split fairly evenly between sports and racing. There are six big screens on the sports side, of the Mirage Resort and Casino Sports book and five other big ones on the racing side.

Number of Seats:

About 140 for race bettors, 112 with individual TVs and about 100 for sports. Some chairs are nicer leather ones. They are all slightly above average. This is one of those rooms with a very clear demarcation between the race and sports area. The race seats are all lined up in rows, with desks and little TVs, and the sports seats are arranged like a lounge.

Number of Betting Windows:

16 total, with ten of those for the race fans. At the Mirage Las Vegas they have electronic signboards.

Free Drinks?

Yes, there are free drinks for betters when you ask for a drink ticket and are betting a lot.

Snack Bar?

There's a small snack bar and deli just steps away from the Mirage Las Vegas book, and the California Pizza Kitchen is so close you can smell the artichoke hearts on top of some guy's fru-fru pizza while you're placing your bets.

Other Notes:

Minimum Wager: $2 for races, $5 for sports.

The Mirage Resort and Casino has a nice room for its sports book with nice wood decor and excellent soft lighting. The only drawback is the lack of TVs for the size of the room. In fact, the signboards take up significantly more room than the TVs. It's a pretty utilitarian space, better suited for checking lots of race results than for hanging around watching the big game.

Number of Tables:

There are about 19 poker tables at the Mirage Resort and Casino, with five in the high-limit area that they won't let us into. We're talking limits higher than our paychecks. This is a non-smoking poker room.

Comfort of Chairs:

The chairs are okay.

Closed Room or Open to Casino?

It's open to the MGM Mirage casino but sort of tucked away so the noise isn't too awful. The high-limit area is in the very back where it's quieter.

Game Spreads and Limits:

They'll pretty much deal anything, especially Omaha, Stud, and Hold 'Em. There are limits in all ranges, including some low-limit, like $3-$6 Hold 'em up to $200-$400 in the back room. Sometimes it goes even higher. The No-limit games range from $1/$2 to $2/$5 with buy-ins from $50-$1000. You can find Omaha too, starting at $4/$8.

Beginner Games or Classes:

Anytime you want a lesson they say they'll be happy to give you one. Like, right now. and now. And now. Wait, I forgot already. Can you show me again now?

How Crowded is the Room?

There are games 24 hours a day and this place can be insane on a weekend night. If you show up at the Mirage casino at 10:00pm on Friday, expect to wait a long time for a seat.

Comps?

Free drinks while playing. $1 an hour on your player's card. So, just like everyone else.

How Good Are the Players?

Among the best in Vegas. But, the Mirage also attracts some dinghy tourists with more money than brains. If you're not super fantastic, play low-limit for fun and leave the suckers for the pros to fleece. Otherwise, you just might find yourself getting shorn too.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

This is one of our five favorite rooms in Vegas (with Bellagio, Caesars, Venetian and The Orleans). They have tournaments and Sit'N'Gos.

The Mirage Las Vegas Guest Rooms

Deluxe or Premium View Room

Deluxe or Premium View Room

The Deluxe Room at the Mirage Las Vegas is 360 square feet of dark shades and cool marble. Get your choice of one king or two queen Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, perfect for pillow fights, tea parties and whatever it is you do late at night. It's your call what you watch on the 42 inch LCD TV. Upgrade to a Premium View Room for the same swanky digs but with views of the Strip, the pool or the mountains.

One Bedroom Tower Suite

One Bedroom Tower Suite

With floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on classic Vegas views and 1,241 square feet of lounging space, the Tower Suite at the MGM Mirage does Las Vegas right. The Sealy Posturepedic king bed in the bedroom offers comfort and luxury but why spend time there when you can cavort in the living room with a 4-seat dining set, sound bar with DVD/MP3/CD player connections and surround sound? The bathroom will also vie for your attention with its jetted tub and separate glass enclosed shower.

The Mirage is still Great

Still one of my favorites. This was the first place I stayed in 15 years ago on my first trip to Las Vegas. I still come here.I like coming through those front doors. I like the changes that have happened over the years to keep it current, yet it still holds that great vegas vibe. Check in is always a breeze. On this past trip, at the end of march, we were upgraded to a nicer room on the 24th floor with a great view of the strip. The bed was comfortable and the room had all the necessary amenities. On the casino floor, there were plenty of craps tables and the dealers were friendly and efficient. The Mirage was one of the first to do everything right in Vegas and its still doing great!

Mirage Hotel and Casino Review

It is conveniently located right on the strip close to all main attractions. A newly renovated hotel with dolphin habitat, white tiger habitat, rain forest, erupting volcano, and many more. Casino do a job in filtering smoke. At check- in the staff were friendly and courteous, we even got upgraded room with a very nice view. Room was nice and bed was very comfortable to sleep on. The concierge was very helpful and housekeeping was excellent. Highly recommend!

Mirage Resort and Casino

I am a simple single working girl that needs to blow off some steam occassionally! i can't do this if it's going to break the bank. that is why i love the mirage. it's in a great location on the strip, it's clean (it's like 20 years old, but was recently refurbished), the hotel staff are very friendly and the price is RIGHT! i saved enough money for this trip to finally indulge myself in a show. i am huge beatles fan, so it was a bonus to see that show in the mirage. great show! i loved it!

Re: Mirage Resort and Casino

I am partial to the Mrage and it's tropical setting. The entire wall behind the registration desk is an aquarium. They have live trees, fountains and flowers in the lobby that makes you feel you are outside. It is gorgeous!The pool area has waterfalls that you are allowed to swim near, under, or behind. The dolphin exhibit is also near the pool. There is a fee for the tour but it is fabulous and the kids loved it too. Well worth the money. Other things to see/do in the hotel: Sigfried and amp; Roy Theater with 2 magicians nightly, The Mirage Volcano, The Tiger Habitat and the list goes on and on.If you are into gambling, try Pai Gow Poker. It is relatively easy to play and you won't find it at every casino but The Mirage Casino does have it.There is also a great water and fountain show with colored lights outside of the hotel. Don't miss it.
