Makes sense. Glad we booked so long ago. Friends who were interested in joining were going to pay about 3 times what we paid!

I always forget that it's a convention city....

I used my comped stay at B for attending G2E. Rates would've totaled over $850 for 3 nights in a standard king, no fountain/strip view (incl. resort fees) had I not used it. Crazy.

When I started looking for hotels for my end of October trip (but ending before Halloween), I thought that perhaps something big was going on or that several large conventions were in town during that time. But that wasn't the case. We are still paying 2 to 3 times the rates we generally pay in the summer. Oh, well. When I get there I will be so excited to be back in Vegas that it won't matter!!

I've been checking hotel rates for a while for Oct 2nd. All the hotels keep going up and up and up. Excalibur's rates went up. Hooters was $25 a night, was up to $63 but I think it's went down. Bill's was $30-40 per night, now its around $70... Im thinking I might have to stay at IP to get a good deal :(
