Mirage Resort & Casino
What We Love
- The best central location on the Strip, in the heart of the Vegas action
- The first casino to seriously embrace poker still has one of the city’s best poker rooms
- The hot party at 16,000-square-foot 1OAK and the very cool indoor/outdoor Rhumbar with cigars and tropical drinks
What To Know
- The swimming pool complex is very nice, but the adults-only Bare Pool Lounge charges fees for both ladies and guys
- A resort fee per night will be collected at the property upon check-in
- The hourly erupting volcano show always draws a big influx of non-guest tourists into the lobby and main casino area, so it’s best to view this on your way out to someplace else
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
With windows splashed with gold dust, a pyrotechnic volcano light show and a high-stakes poker room, The Mirage is quintessential Vegas. Despite its vast scale, it manages to maintain an air of intimacy, starting in the check-in area, which is separated from the main casino by an atrium jungle. Crossing flowing streams and walking through lush foliage instantly transports you off the busy boulevard and into a luxe oasis. You can very easily pass a delightfully busy weekend here without ever leaving the resort thanks to shows like Cirque du Soleil’s The Beatles LOVE and ventriloquist Terry Fator and the family-friendly Secret Garden of Siegfried & Roy, an open-air landscaped zoo with rare white tigers, panthers and leopards as well as a dolphin-swimming complex. Or forget the family and hightail it to the European (read: topless) Bare Pool Lounge, lined by posh daybeds and cabanas. After dark, New York transplant 1OAK nightclub is one of the hottest parties on the Strip with 16,000 square feet of lounges, dance floors and state-of-the-art sound systems. The Mirage doesn’t rely on celeb chefs to anchor its restaurants, but that doesn’t mean they’re not delicious—just a little lower-profile. Choose between sushi at Japonais, neo American at STACK, and the meatfest of the Samba Brazilian steakhouse. For a quick but decadent bite try the Las Vegas incarnation of the Carnegie Deli or go for a big burger and spiked milkshake at BLT Burger.
In the Area
Imported from New Zealand, Minus5° Ice Bar is entirely made of ice—even the stools and glasses. You don a fur coat or parka, Russian hat and gloves, and enjoy ice cold cocktails and an arctic experience. Seen enough poker on TV? Ready to give it a try? The Mirage hosts daily buy-in poker tournaments twice a day. Easily the best golf course in Vegas, Shadow Creek is open only to guests of MGM Resorts hotels (including the Mirage), and those fees include round-trip limo transfers and a caddie. Illuminate Vegas’s retro roots with a trip to the Neon Graveyard, the resting place of the city’s flashy signs.
How to Get There
Stayed there the week of June 9th on a 4 night comp. The room was spacious and clean. Was supposed to be a Volcano Room View but they gave us a view of the roof below but for free it is hard to complain. The pool was very nice and refreshing. The only draw back about the pool is the cost of the drinks and food, better have deep pockets if you are going to stay at the pool most of the day. Staff throughout the hotel and casino were very friendly.
I had never stayed here, but we wanted to try somewhere different and it didn’t disappoint! Everything from check-in/out was easy, the food at the restaurants was excellent, the staff was friendly and the concierge helped us book a cabana and that put it over the top. We will definitely stay here again.
First time at the Mirage and I was pleased, wasn’t all the B.S. glitz and glamour that a 20 year old would require. What it did have was “Style” which is what everyone would appreciate. If you want a place to relax by the pool and listen to music and enjoy a beautiful large pool area this is it. If you want a spot in the mid strip close to all that has great drinks “The Still” bar and on Friday Latin music this is it. Had a great stay with no issues or drama..
Staff pleasant, have to pay for everything! Scratchy towels, low water pressure and TV kept messing up. Poor TV channel choices. Had long wait times for cafe and Starbucks. Prices almost twice what you'd expect to pay
Excellent location and really good sized rooms with good decor. Staff very friendly and helpful.
I had a couple of issues, firstly after parking car in multi storey car park you then walk over a bridge and then have to squeeze down the thinnest escalator with all your luggage to get to the lobby. There was no lift or stairs that I could see. I am a fit person and I had difficulty with 2 bags. If I was elderly or disabled you would have real trouble.
Next all be it minor I have never been to a hotel where they do not supply shower gel. They had shampoo, hair conditioner and body lotion but no shower gel. I asked the cleaning staff and was told that was the policy. So I had to go out to buy some after a late arrival.
