When the Mirage Hotel and Casino opened its doors on in 1989, it broke ground in more ways than one. It marked the beginning of a building renaissance on the Strip, becoming the city’s first full-service resort instead of a casino-hotel.
The Mirage is centrally located on South Las Vegas Boulevard. It’s south of the Sands Expo Convention Center and north of Caesars Palace, Flamingo, and Bellagio. The closest monorail station is Harrah’s & The LINQ, approximately a ten-minute walk.
Check-in time is 3:00 PM and check-out time is 11:00 AM. Early check-in may be an option for an extra fee, depending on availability.
