the swankness that is the Mandalay Bay

Seriously this was the poshest hotel I've ever stayed in. I always wanted to but on previous trips when I checked their rates it was like $300-400 a night and I'm too much of a cheapass to blow that on a room. At least I've upgraded some from back in the day when my friends all called Motel 6 "Chez Liz". But when I found rates from $79 a night this time I was like oh hell YES and booked that reservation. And it exceeded my expectations.

Not only did the toilet have its own room, it had a phone. Talk about executive washroom!
