The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas Review

The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas Review

Out front stands an active volcano that erupts at the top of every hour in a traffic stopping fiery display of might and magic. Out back dolphins swim in a peaceful ocean lagoon. It can only be one place on Earth, the Mirage Resort in Las Vegas. The spectacular first jewel in the legacy of Steve Wynn’s Las Vegas strip makeover. When the resort opened in 1989 it brought a new level of luxury and themed sophistication to the Las Vegas resort scene creating a new “Mirage Class” of Las Vegas resorts.

The Mirage Hotel offers 3004 rooms and suites with a level of space and amenities to please everyone, even the most discriminating. Standard rooms are oversize and well appointed with attention to even the slightest detail. Suites are spectacular and will provide an unforgettable Las Vegas stay in the lap of luxury and space. Guests can book reservations by calling the toll free number 800.374.9000 or by clicking here for the Mirage website. Hotel guests can enjoy the Mirage Spa with a full service salon and a Health Club that includes a wide array of state-of-the-art exercise equipment, trainers, a lounge and juice bar.

Dining options at the Mirage Resort range from the long line of dollars signs guaranteed to provide a never forgotten food experience down to the fast food outlets from nationally known brands. My favorite deli west of the Hudson is Carnegie Deli at the Mirage; and yes, it is the latest from the family owned, world famous Carnegie Deli in New York City. The popular California Pizza Kitchen specializes in wood fired ovens and is located across the way from the Deli. Keep in mind that both restaurants are close to the poker room.

The white table cloth set will enjoy the varied choices of upscale restaurants operated by world renowned chefs. Fin, Stacks, Samba Brazilian Steakhouse, Kokomos, Caribe Café, Paradise Cafe, Japonis, Coconuts Ice Cream Shop and numerous coffee bars will provide whatever you seek to eat. For those that aren’t sure what they are craving it’s the Cravings Buffet considered by many to be the best of the strip. Room service is available 24 hours and features a full menu for your pleasure.

Nightlife with the beautiful people at the Mirage happens at the popular Jet nightclub or the Revolution Lounge. If your passion is entertainment and you come for the live shows then book reservations to take in the Danny Gans Show, “The man of a thousand voices.” The Beatles(tm) Love(tm), by Cirque du Soleil(R) performs nightly at the Mirage Resort, Reserve Tickets Online or call 702-792-7777 or 1-800-963-9634.
