  • Best Table in the House: Groups can enjoy the top table and most luxurious private dining rooms at the best restaurants on The Strip such as Jean Georges Steakhouse at ARIA, Julian Serrano’s award-winning Picasso at Bellagio, or Michael Mina’s PUB 1842 at MGM Grand.
  • Enjoy Shows Together: There’s no more worrying about reserving great seats all together at popular shows such as Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil at Mandalay Bay. Special ticket pricing for groups also is available.
  • Discounts: Whether you are an existing member of MGM Resorts’ free rewards program, M life, or sign up for it this trip, you will have insider access to M life discounts for hotel stays.
  • Instant VIP: Group leaders automatically advance to the third level of M life, the Gold Tier, as a thank you for booking their vacation through MGM Resorts Connections. This means the next time they visit Las Vegas, they’ll enjoy perks such as access to priority hotel check-in lines, priority dining reservations and discounts on shopping.

Hotel Review: The King Suite at THEhotel Las Vegas

THEhotel is a separate hotel building in the Mandalay Bay Resort Las Vegas. Lesson learned from today is book the cheap MGM Resort rooms at places like Excalibur, Luxor, Monte Carlo and New York-New York early in the day for a same day arrival. By 6pm all the cheap hotels had rates $20 higher than in the morning.

On the other hand, THEhotel dropped from $120 to $108 during the day.

THE 725 square feet in THE one bedroom king suite is a nice change from our midscale hotel brand stays this past week while road tripping from Monterey to Denver and back.

THEhotel and Mandalay Bay Beach party during the IPW conference I attended last month. No opportunity to swim tonight. THE pool closes here at 7pm.

THE parking garage was 108 F degrees when we arrived at 8pm.

THE heat is kind of insufferable in Las Vegas.

Maybe tomorrow, THE Refreshing Swim.
