SLEEP STYLISHLY: After an $85-million revamp, all 3,044 Deluxe, Tower Deluxe, and suite accommo- dations at The Mirage feature dark wood furnishings, cool metal finishes, and a soothing neutral palette.
HE FIRST MEGA RESORT TO light up Las Vegas more than 20 years ago, the 102-acre Mirage is still setting the pace for what’s hip and hot on The Strip. This property makes a big impression starting at the door, where an erupting vol- cano and flora-filled indoor
atrium greet guests on arrival, and at the front desk, where more than 1,000 types of marine life fill a 20,000-gallon aquarium. From the saltwater pool complex to the colorful yet Zen design of the guest rooms, The Mirage takes paradise to a whole new level. In 2008, The Mirage’s AAA Four-Diamond accommodations underwent an $85-million, floor- to-ceiling overhaul, remodeling rooms and suites into a sleeker, more modern design, chock-full of amenities. Four levels of suites, lanais with private pools and gardens, and two- and three-bed- room villas round out the accommodation mix.
Meeting space at
The Mirage is just as flexible and plenti- ful. The 90,000-square-foot Mirage Events Center can be reconfigured as ballroom space for galas or as exhibition space for trade shows. Smaller event spaces — including the Volcano, Bare Pool Lounge, and Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat — offer myriad options for special events. From a Brazilian steakhouse to play-
ful American cuisine at STACK Restaurant & Bar, The Mirage’s six fine-dining options span the globe and the palate. Nine casual dining outlets include favorites like BLT Burger, California Pizza Kitchen, and Carnegie Deli, and entertainment options — like “The Beatles LOVE” by Cirque du Soleil and “Terry Fator: Ventriloquism in
pcma convene April 2012
Concert” — are just as diverse and crowd-pleasing. An on-site spa and casino as well as shopping and nightlife will always give meeting attendees something new to explore. n
