Better than a sensory-deprivation tank?


Ooops! Maybe I lost the thread of this thread.

I have stayed there. I did not play Black jack there so I cannot comment. The rooms were great, very modern with everything adjustable at your finger tips by the little computer pad next to the bed. It is centrally located but do not ride the tram by yourself in the wee hours of the morning. The casino is not my favorite it is a little to contemporary for me. The video poker sucks. I did not play in their poker room while I was there, but they run quite a few big games there now. The buffet was very good but the other restraunts are either very pricey or not so good.
I would definitely stay there again for the right offer. I usually stay at the Bellagio or Paris.

I do not know anything about the tram---where does it go?
Did you have a bad experience on it? Is it for guests only?

You know a hotel that has one? I'm there.



Try The M. If you get a southern facing room, your view is literally nothing but the road in front of the hotel, and then desert all the way to the mountains. No houses, no buildings, just barren, empty, beautiful space. It's my favorite place to stay. Reading a book by that window's view is my favorite non-gaming activity to do while in Vegas.

MGM has a minority stake [in Borgata] and may give you some Vegas credit based on your AC play.

By all appearances, the MGM Mirage stake remains at 50 percent, despite having passed the state's deadline for liquidation.

Bellagio --- Aria --- Monte Carlo

then if you walk further south:

Excalibur --- Luxor --- Mandalay Bay

Anyone can use it, and I suggest using it at times to save on walking/walking in a/c vs. outside. The hours are somewhat restrictive though. It's better than paying for the monorail on the other side of the street, imo.

The tram betweeen the Excalibur and Mandalay Bay seems to be more restrictive than the one between the Monte Carlo and Bellagio, it has also has a middle stop at Crystals which is shopping. Do not get off here or you will have a long walk to the Aria Casino. The Aria is part of City Center and is set back off the strip. It is a pretty good walk to the other Casinos from the Aria's front door. The Aria is attached basically to the Monte Carlo. When you walk through the doors of the Tram you go right to the Monte Carlo left to Aria.
I got stuck alone on the Tram platform late one night at the Bellagio. I was hassled by a group of young drunk or high locals. Fortunately some other people showed up shortly and they moved on. If they had not I do not think it would have ended so well. I know they are under surveillance but that is little comfort when you are stuck by yourself.
Also they do close the Tram for maintnence without prior warning. This seems to happen more in the morning.

I'm glad to see you posting, Ace, even if you choose not to do active trip reports anymore, you're very valuable to this board.
