I took these on June 5 and 6, on a trip to Las Vegas. In addition to my photos, you'll enjoy (I hope) my commentary about the trip. All photos were taken in 1800x1200 Normal mode.
Wow, what a place. While the Four Seasons @ Mandalay Bay was nice, I'm staying at Bellagio next time for sure. The grounds are nice.. inside is amazing, especially the Conservatory. The fountain show at night is not-to-be-missed. We ate dinner at Olives which was very good as well! To top it off, we saw "O" from Cirque du Soleil which is indescribable! Just pay the $100 and see it! But book real early!
Mandalay Bay / Four Seasons
We ended up staying one night at the Four Seasons, which is the top 5 floors of Mandalay Bay. While we had a pretty big checkin snafu (we requested a room with two beds since it was Mom and I, and we got one bed in our room. They had no other rooms so we ended up with a rollaway), and MB's wave pool was closed this week (which is why we chose this place in the first place!), the room was great, and our view was incredible.
This place wasn't even completely finished yet, but the casino is already open (surprise surprise), and most of the rooms were as well. The place is really elegant, just like the Bellagio. So far, I'd have to give the Bellagio the edge.. but I'll make my final judgement once it's fully open. I tried to take more indoor shots, but the camera always wanted to do slow shutter mode, and they just didn't come out.
Now this place looks cool. It opens this fall, and features a 50 story replica of the Eiffel Tower!
Odds & Ends
In case you were wondering, I didn't come back a winner. Mom broke even and I lost some money, but not everything I brought at least.
