My wife and I are looking at getting a suite when we visit next year.

We will be paying as our level of play wouldn't even buy us a buffet comp, never mind a suite, and we don't want to risk waiting and trying the $20 (or even a $500) trick to try and get upgraded just on the off chance it might work.

We will be staying for 14 nights, prefer Staying on the Strip and are were wondering what experience people had with Suites in Vegas.

For our budget, we were looking at the Monaco Suites at the Monte Carlo, primarily for its location near to a CVS and the fact its an easy walk to most places we like. We also looked at the Tropicana and the 1 King 2 Room suite.

With the exchange rate what it is, we were looking at spending around $2500-$3000 for the hotel.

Pallazzo is out for obvious reasons.

Any suggestions?

OK I have stayed at the Aria in both their corner suites in their main tower and also in the SkySuites
Both are absolutely incredible, with the SkySuites taking the prize as the best suite I have ever stayed in anywhere

You may or may not have seen the article I wrote for this site about the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and the suite I had there for a couple of nights in February. I had an identical room 19 floors higher for a couple of nights in April. I could not afford (or at least wouldn't be willing to pay) the rack rate for such a room, but I was able to get astonishingly reasonable rates for mid-week nights on promos upgraded at check-in. The regular weekend rates are way out of my range, and I have never tried booking a room anywhere in Las Vegas for two weeks. I suspect that August would be a low-demand time for rooms and that good rates could be negotiated; I just don't know what.

You should just take the $3000 and gamble and in a lower-end property they might comp you a suite.

What is the obvious reason about Pallazzo? Price?

In 2010 we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite at the Mirage. They may call it a honeymoon suite. We were the first ones to stay in the room after a remodel. It was really nice and we got it for under 200 a night. Not sure what current rates are.

I stay at TheHotel a lot. It is pretty nice but I don't know if you can get it for 200/night average, including weekends.

Depending on your definition of "suite", you should check out MGM Grand. They have the "executive suites" which are pretty nice. Some people would call it "just a big room" since there is no door separating the "bedroom" from the "living room" but it's a good size. The bathroom is also very large. As long as there is not a major event going on, $200/night average might be reasonable.

The Deluxe King Suite at the Quad (low-end but recently remodeled; I have not stayed there but several people on here are regulars) would cost you right at $2000 for any 2 weeks in August, with a separate living area and other amenities. The best rooms at the Flamingo and Bally's are both in your budget, and premium rooms at Harrah's are as well. All 4 are right in the center of the strip and on the monorail for easy movement. I don't know much about the non-CET properties. There is a Walgreen's drug store on that side of the street, about a block away from Harrah's, if you need access to that specifically (CVS competitor that I personally prefer).
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Within your budget you can get a 950 sq ft 1 bedroom suite c/w balcony at the MGM Signature. These even have a full kitchen. For not much over $100 a night you can get 550 sq. ft. and a kitchenette. The cooking facilities are probably nice to have considering the length of time you will be there.

The biggest knock against them is location. They are a block off of the strip. Not far from the back entrance to the MGM but a long walk through the MGM to the strip. You do get access to the MGM pools. There is not much for facilities in the 3 buildings they are in but you have full access to everything at the MGM.
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.

I was going to suggest this to him, but I think its obvious that the wife values a good hotel room. Also very few places ever comp more than three nights.

Now that is a gamble. What is your suggestion? Check into the regular room and put $3000 through slots and play to you lose it all the first night? At CZR properties that will earn you about 6000 tier credits IF and only IF you are lucky and get a 90% payback. So they you go to the desk and ask for a suite for the next 13 nights thinking they assume you will play the same for the next 2 weeks? And when you dont play the next few days do you think they will let you stay for free??

Same thing on table games. How would you suggest spending the $3000 to get a free suite because they love your play so much that they value you enough for a suite?

And what low end property has a suite that would meet what they sound like they are looking for?

I assume you were joking because there is no way this would work or even make any sense.
