Beautiful casino/hotel. Went to the lunch buffet, I thought it was very good. Like getting the wine or beer with the meal. Drink stations are interesting, changes the tip dynamic. You tip the bartender and then the bus person but they are not bringing you drinks, so the $1 or $2 tip per drink rule goes out the window. vp tables only decent at upper levels.
The center strip Mirage has a very friendly poker room with a lot of jackpots and promos going on, 1/2 NL and 3/6 LH run every day. Not much for good pay table video poker but they do have some quarter progressive games where the meter goes up quickly. On weekdays they have a double deck blackjack game for $25 min. And the buffet is excellent.
Never stayed here (but on my list) even with the Resort Fees...
Went and had dinner at Samba Steakhouse and had the Rodizo BBQ - It's all you can eat and it is delicious. I highly suggest having the bacon wrapped Turkey. The bacon is crisp and the turkey melts in your mouth.
Also saw The Beatles LOVE - was EXCELLENT!
Gaming atmosphere is awesome here, lots of people all having fun.
I was there in 02/06 so this is a little dated. The rooms were very nice,its vegas who stays in the room?, but they were nice.
The food at the buffet was very good. The dealers for the most part were friendly and made the table gaming enjoyable. The deli is not a good idea. Unless a sandwich that you could never really eat is your idea of fun.
The poker room was nice but the tables were pretty crowded together and they needed a few more dealers. I would definitely stay here again but for the money I will probably look else where.
