The Hotel is a good hotel but it's not as new or nice as the Encore. For $104 a night it's a steal though.

Anyone has a driver recommendation?
There are always limos available outside the nicer casinos and you can usually go anywhere you want on the strip for $40 or so. I always take this route versus waiting in a cab line.

I rent a car every time. Hotels do not charge to valet park and it is very easy to get around

Just looking at a stay in January and the Madarin Oriental looks good with its $200USD food credit, upgrade at reservation along with the $ 100 spa credit.

I just wondered if anyone has experience of the breakfast offered here, is it any good and also what are the daily internet charges like?

Thanks

Stayed there in 2010. The breakfast in the MOzen was great-lunch was very good also. They did not offer fresh squeezed juice on the FHR breakfast, complained and was offerred the juice (silly). Don't remember the internet charges. Spa was also pretty good. The strip view rooms can be very noisy as they face an open air market with loud music on the other side of the road. Overall we enjoed it and have been back to eat at Twist even when staying at another hotel. Enjoy.

I'm not seeing this offer on the FHR website. Is this for Centurion only?

I stayed at the Palazzo for one night earlier this month. It was my first ever FHR booking. Overall I was very pleased. The $100 credit was good at every Palazzo restaurant from my memory. I used it at Carnevino. It was clearly indicated on the welcome package that it was a one time credit for one meal. I had hoped to use it both for dinner and a lunch.

The free breakfast was at Grand Lux, but I think I was charged on my bill and didn't catch it until much later.

Got a great room overlooking the strip.

I think each property offers a "special amenity". I was just at THE hotel at Mandalay Bay and we got an $80 credit, per room (3 rooms) for breakfast. It could have been just for the Cent card, but I think it is listed as the special amenity of the Amex letter you get when you check in.

I only have the Platinum and you get $80 for food (breakfast) and $100 at the spa (per room).

Just had a better look at the site and its actually a Mandarin Oriental Benifit for Cent card holds no matter which MO property you stay at and is on top of the FHR benifits:

Your Centurion privileges:
* A confirmed room upgrade (when making the reservation, based on availability) and a complimentary butler service to pack and unpack.
* A complimentary night in participating properties (per calendar year in conjunction with one paid night).
* A credit of up to $200 (US) towards spa treatments or food and beverage when staying in participating properties.
* Check-out as late as 6:00pm with 4:00pm guaranteed
