@Miss Zinfandel:  I vote for Mandalay Bay!  Some people think that b/c it’s at the end of “The Strip,” that it’s not ideal.  However, for a honeymoon couple, I think it’s perfect b/c it’s not normally as rowdy like mid-Strip hotels.  However, it’s also on the monorail, so you can quickly get to & from mid-Strip if a bigger party scene is your desire.  They actually have a beach there, great high-end shopping,shows,  & the Shark Reef is really cool.  Whatever you decide, just make sure you get trip insurance (cancel-for-any-reason), in case anything happens w/his kids that would cause you to have to change your plans at the last minute.

I love the Bellagio! I’ve stayed there twice, and loved it. They’re really good with upgrades too if you tell them it’s a special occasion. Mandalay Bay is great too, but I got tired of all the walking since it’s so far down the strip.

We’re also doing Vegas for a honeymoon and doing thisng we’ve never done before (nice restaurants, shows, sight see) not just to party, ok maybe a lil of that. I checked Expedia.com a few weeks ago and flight from SD to Vegas and 3 nights at the Paris hotel was under $900 and thought that was a good deal. Check online and see what you find. If you want to see a show and don’t have a certain one in mind there are half off tickets for sale the day of the show when it’s not sold out.

Wynn if it’s in your budget. Mandalay is great, but nothing compares to the Wynn.

I’ve stayed at Planet Hollywood (April 2010) and thought it was a really nice, mid priced hotel.  It also has the added bonus of being attached to the Miracle Mile Mall.  I probably wouldn’t say that it was a particularly romantic place to stay though.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Paris for my bachelorette and it was beautiful and very reasonably priced. Lots of fun Parisian inspired shops and bakeries, sweet pool and the Mon Ami Gabi restaurant was wonderful with outstanding service (bartender ROCKS!) On the higher end, the Venetian is gorgeous and its San Marco replica is quite nicely done, though its restaurant inside did not impress at all (small portions, way overpriced.) The Bellagio is just absolutely phenomenal. Ate at Olive’s restaurant on the patio with view of the water show. Olive’s staff and food were well worth the price. Not sure about Mandalay Bay.

We jsut stayed at Mandalay Bay at the begining of July. It was my first time in Vegas while Darling Husband had been and he decided he wanted to stay at a nice hotel so he did the booking. He got a great offer on a suite which was really nice. We had a 2 person jetted tub and double sinks in the bathroom as well as a couch and dining table. As far as the pool complex, we wanted to take advantage of it but it was way too crowded for me to find enjoyable. The wave pool was mostly for standing in as there was no space to swim and we could not even find a chair or piece of sand to sit on in the whole complex. We walked over to the adults only pool hoping to find it less crowded but decided not to pay cover for an hour of swimming and the atmosphere seemed mor focused towards singles at least from the groups we say at the entry way. However, the location is great if you are flying as the airport is across the street (but not loud) and the monorail takes you into the middle of the strip quite easily without needing to go outside. If you are not going for the casinos, I would suggest looking into THE hotel at Manadaly Bay, we went over to THE cafe (super delicious) and really liked the more laid back atmosphere of the non-casino tower. Also, if you do stay at Manadaly Bay or nearby, check out http://www.restaurants.com as several of the hotel restaurants are on there so you can get a dicounted gift certificate before you go. I would recommend Mandalay Bay for a honeymoon, I would also recommend Zumanity by Circ de Solie in New York New York as a great show to see on your honeymoon.

@Miss Zinfandel: I’ve stayed at so many different places in Vegas and my favorite hotels are the Wynn, Venetian, and Mandalay (in that order). I haven’t stayed at the Bellagio so I can’t weigh in on that one.

Not to deter you, but I fell asleep during Zumanity, lol. I think it had more to do with how much wine I drank at dinner though, not the actual show itself. My husband stayed awake but he didn’t like it…we were expecting a Cirque de Soilei (sp?) type show and it just wasn’t.

@hanaleilove: You didn’t think Zumanity represented Cirque? I haven’t seen others but I know the business model (from a case in college) is Opera meets Circus so that is what I was expecting. Zumanity has an extra element of nudity and variety show. I’m curious to know what was missing since it is the only experience I have with Cirque de Solei.

@slicey19: I guess I was expecting more of “wow” factor from it and I found it be more of burlesque show? I just wasn’t very entertained by it and I kept nodding off. Like I said though, it probably had more to do with the copious amounts of wine I consumed earlier.
