As an MGM property, you can stack with this Amex run promo for an additional $70 credit and 15% back. There seems to be some debate as to whether the 15% is a special booking rate, or a statement credit for spending at the resort. I have seen reports of people getting the statement credit, but YMMV. See the full thread here. The $70 seems quite clear though, if you look at the promo “How it works”, it clearly states “4. … if you spend $600 or more, receive $70 back on your statement”
The timing of this is great for me. We have a family weekend trip to Vegas planned for early September and I just used this to book the City Corner Suite accommodation. For my dates the rate was $219 a night but with the $70 Amex Credit (assuming our total reaches $600, which is likely after resort fees and taxes and probably a couple of meals billed to the room) and $50 resort credit it should come in at a very good price for an 811 square foot suite with separate bedroom and kitchen. Vdara does not have a casino, and happens to be 100% non-smoking, which actually makes it a great base for a family. It’s connected to Aria, and close by to Mandalay Bay and Bellagio. Expect a trip report in September
