I am planning a trip for Jan.10 thru the 15th, Sun. thru Thur. I choose these dates to try and get the best room at the best rate. The more I read up on the trip I find opinions can very alot.
First off, we are not big gamblers but want to see strip and do a Hoover dam tour and catch a good show. I am currently looking at the Paris, Mirage, and the MGM Grand as potential hotels. Would even consider a more upscale place (wynn) if view and comfort level offset the cost. Am I better off to book through the hotel or expedia? I read where you are more likly to get a room upgrade if you book through the hotel. Is this true? A view of the strip is a must..
Should I get show tickets in advance or will there be better deals or coupons once I get to my hotel. I read of booths where you can get 1/2 priced tickets the day of the show. Is this true? I really want to see O.
Tours...Is pink jeep the best way to go? I think their prices are a little steep but for the smaller size of thr groupings I think it is worth it. Would it be worth my time to call them directly and try to get a 2 for 1 if I take multiple tours?
I know no 2 trips are alike and alot of it will be being in the right place at the right time but any vetern advice will be welcome.
Forgive my spelling and grammer. I am not the most educated fellow in the world book wise but I hope you folks can educate me better on my planning this trip...Thanks, Don
