Solo Vegas trip questions?

Hi all, I got some great advice here last month when I posted about a trip next Nov for my wife and I. She has now decided to go to Paris instead with some of her girlfriends but I'm still going to vegas!

However, my dates are now flexible so would sept/oct be a better time to go?

The hotel isn't as important now either so am I better off going for somewhere like the Flamingo (I can get it for $160 Mon to Thurs - all I want really is a bed).

Also, I have free are lingus flights so will only be looking for internal flights from Boston to Vegas and then Vegas to JFK - where is the best place to start there? Lots of cheap options for JFK but not so much for Boston so far.

Thanks again...

London, United...

September is great. But just a thought: Shouldn't you go to Vegas at the same time your wife's in Paris?

Visit every airline possible to try and find your connecting flights. American, United, Delta, Southwest, Virgin America, Jet Blue. Any and all.

No, she's going over the august bank holiday weekend - I can't go then. Free pretty much anytime from 2nd week in September on.

Yea, have to start going through all those airlines to get prices/times to suit...

The Flamngo is $160/night? During the week? You must be picking a popular time to go. If you just want a bed, the Flamingo will do you right - great strip location, and clean enough rooms. (I don't ever upgrade there; I'm sure the more expensive rooms are nicer.)

Harrah's is usually reasonable also, but with all the construction, the Flamingo might be a better choice. In prior trips, I've stayed at Bill's when it was Barbary Coast, and also at Casino Royale - both were inexpensive and decent enough rooms.

I love solo trips to Vegas.

Weather wil be better usually in September , find out flights on Expedia and other engines.I like Bills Gamblin' hall beside the Flamingo, easier to get from room to strip , cheaper and use of Flamingo pool. Hope you have a great time
