About Las Vegas

If you haven’t been to Las Vegas recently, then you haven’t been to Las Vegas. Las Vegas has expanded its attractions to include much more than all-night gambling and bargain-priced buffets. Las Vegas is now considered one of the best family vacation destinations in the world.

Next door to The Mirage, you’ll find a real live pirate battle, taking place every night and can watch as they sink a full-sized ship! While in town, you can choose from two "Cirque du Soleil" shows. The acrobatics and showmanship of this French Canadian troupe cannot accurately be described - you have to see it to believe it. Don’t forget to say hello to the family of bottlenose dolphins living just beyond the lagoon-style pool! Add to that top name comics, magicians, and the highest quality shows anywhere and you’ll find that Las Vegas is a truly amazing town.

We’ve reserved a low room rate of $149.00 for single or double occupancy, plus current local taxes of 9 percent. This convention rate applies from Thursday, February 10, 2000 through Friday, February 18, 2000, so you’ll have plenty of time to play before or after the Tech Forum. To make your hotel reservations call The Mirage at 800-374-9000. For best availability, be sure to make your reservations early, (no later than Monday, January 10, 2000) especially if you’re arriving early or staying later. A one-night deposit must accompany reservations. There is a 72-hour notice of reservation cancellation. Rooms canceled within the 72-hour time frame forfeit a one-night deposit.

You’ll find mild weather in February with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s, making it the perfect get away from the long cold winter.
