The Mirage in Las Vegas, a Tropical Paradise
In the center of the Las Vegas Strip is the Mirage Resort, a virtual Tropical Paradise.
Entering the resort, head left to check-in which is quick and easy. They will charge an additional “resort fee per day” and place a $300.00 hold on your credit card. The resort is a MLife resort. I highly recommend joining (for no fee) and the rewards program will provide a discount on rooms. MLife is also represented at other resorts 25 in all.
The entry to the casino is through a domed, multi-waterfall, lush garden of palm trees and flowers. This area is a must photo op stop, both during the day and evening.
Proceeding down the lush carpeted area you will be winding through slot machines, table games and restaurants. The room elevators are located to the left with three floor designated rooms/wings. The six elevators allow for quick transfer to your level without stopping on every floor. There are numerous availability of rooms, suites, lanai rooms of one, two or three bedrooms villas and a penthouse. Check under HOTEL for a description of each room. Also included are Dinner and Show Packages and Air and Hotel Packages.
