Room was average looking. Not as slick as some of the newer rooms opening up, but not as cramped as Foxwoods.
Depended on what I was playing. Hold em had a lot of "young men" thinking that playing like Gus Hansen is the way to go. 7-card stud had an older "tighter" crowd. Both were average in play, but if you picked your spots, you could grab a nice pot.
Experienced and incredibly nice. I thought the Mirage overall (minus one waitress) had an incredibe staff. Very pleasant, fun to be around, and basically knew what they were doing.
One single waitress brings this down from good. On her behalf, she did apologize later in the day and said it was just one of those bad days. Tough to have when you are serving a bunch of drunken poker players.
Very friendly and helpful. We stayed at the Mirage so I had played there more than other places. They got to know my name (and game) and sat me pretty much when I entered the room.
Didn't check as they mentioned they don't take cards unless you were being rated for their "poker room rate". Since I wasn't sure I would qualify, I didn't even attempt. In the end, I probably could have had the rate for one or two of the nights.
