Our room was very nice and quiet on the 26th floor facing the pools and the airport. I like Mandalay Bay, because it is less smoky than other casinos, there are live music options after 9 pm, and many eating options, too.
I used the self-parking and I parked on the 4th floor. I noticed that people who parked on the lower floors had to wait longer for elevators, because they were already full when the doors opened. The disadvantages to using the self-parking is that you are not allowed to use the baggage carts, because they belong to the valet service.

Bring your own cooler to keep your drinks and snacks cold, because if you move anything in your room fridge you will be charged.
Management needs to improve their elevators security card swipe devices. Sometimes the devices wouldn’t scan the card and you had to change elevators to get up to your room. I saw a lot of patrons have problems using their cards in the elevators. More
