Vegas Back to 100

MtM Vegas – Vegas Back to 100

On this week’s MtM Vegas we have so much to talk about including my amazing Chase LHRC deal for Park MGM and Circa raising prices a lot. Before we dive in don’t forget to subscribe to the Miles to Memories YouTube channel to see every episode plus our Vegas reviews, guides and tours!

This Week’s MtM Vegas

On this week’s show we discuss how Uber and Lyft are back to charging for surges in Vegas and what that has meant for wait times. Plus the Aria Express tram is back and everything is basically back to 100% as of June. So does it feel like old Vegas?

I also stayed at Park MGM this week and have a mini review of my stay plus discuss how I scored an AMAZING deal through Chase’s luxury hotel program. I paid $80 out of pocket for the room + $160 in food credit for the night. It’s one of my favorite Vegas deals and you don’t want to miss it. We also discuss the possible downgrade of the exterior of MSG Sphere (judging from the concept art), how Circa’s Stadium Swim is raising their prices A LOT and whether or not Vegas is turning into Times Square with all of the screens.

Vegas Back to 100 – Bottom Line

After all of this time it is great to see Vegas back to pretty much normal. I had some spectacular views the past few nights that reminded me of just how unique Vegas really is. When are you planning a trip? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I always thought having the Monorail run from the airport down the center of Las Vegas Blvd. on an elevated basis was the way to go.
    Shawn and Mark, thanks for all the latest info!
    My preference for LV transportation is a rental car. However,
    if Uber prices are not crazy, I’ll use them as well.
    I guess walking is an option too. LOL

  2. Hi Shawn,
    I guess my Diamond status offered me some fantastic rates at Caesars properties like COMPED rooms so I made two reservations:
    Mid Oct I’ll be at Harrah’s Resort Southern California for absolute zero dollars. Comped room with zero Resort Fees for two nights. I plan on visiting the San Diego Zoo and Little Italy while there.
    And the week before Christmas I have 5 nights free at Planet Hollywood again zero Resort Fees so absolutely no charge for my room.
    All this plus the wonderful time I already had at Planet Hollywood in April of this year, all thanks to you and Mark and Miles to Memories for promoting the FoundersCard for $295.
