We've only been once but I wouldnt even think about TI. If you can't get a good deal at the Cosmo then consider the Venetian which is where we stayed on our trip and is absolutely gorgeous. We had a Bella suite which was huge and had a strip view. On the 29th floor i think it was. Just don't let them put you in the tower as you are a good walk from everything the hotel has to offer and the views aren't great

Look at the polo towers, we stay there, it is a condo, city tax is half the price, doesn't have casino so not smoky, has laundry facilities which are free. The one bedrooms have full kitchen.

It is next door to mum, across from Cosmo.

Going to jump in on this as interested/alarmed on peoples views on TI.

I have booked a couple of nights at TI in August for me & family (2A and 16yo & 15yo daughters). Booked TI as needed good value and a decent pool - should I look elsewhere? TI was only 100/night inc taxes, resort fee & parking so I think I will struggle to get better for the price but would welcome suggestions?

We are in Vegas a week earlier and staying at MGM Grand - splashing out a bit there as it is a big birthday and we have stayed there before and loved the hotel and pool area.

Trying to save money on the second visit as just passing through LV really on way to coast after doing Canyon/Monument Vally/Zion - TI may be fine for that but I can cancel and go elsewhere?

Please dont worry about TI. My daughter stayed there and the room was lovely. We were there and visited her a few times at the hotel. We gamble there all of the time and dont find the smoke any more of an issue than at any other hotel. I would happily stay there. Compared to Cosmo, Venetian Bellagio etc, no its not as nice but then you will pay at least twice the price. Another dibber stayed there and did a trippie about it but sorry I have forgotten her name so that you could read it. Maybe do a search? I honestly would be more than happy to stay there. Please dont worry.

Just found that trippie: Its from Lisa_Lollipop and its day 9 when she goes to TI. Its a great trippie to read.

The cosmopolitan is our absolute favourite hotel to visit and the rooms look amazing. TI I wouldn't say is anything special. Both pretty decent locations but Cosmo definitely wins... You may be lucky and get an upgrade on check in anyway x

Youre too early for the good prices , Vegas prices are best around the 3 month mark

Id shop around nearer the time , Id be surprised if you cant get somewhere better

Ive been to Vegas a fair bit and its the one hotel I find on the strip where the smoke hits you , and I just find it old and dated .
I did go in last year as we had to fetch a friend who was staying there with work and his room was quite dated

Great advice - thanks!

I like to have everything booked as we are doing quite a Road Trip but everything is free cancellation so I will check back on prices and other alternatives as we get closer to the holiday.
