Hotels....aaaaargh

Hi,

I know this question must get asked all the time, but please help.

I'm trying to search for a hotel room on smarter vegas and I'm a little overwhelmed. We've been to Las Vegas before and stayed at the Fremont Hotel (2005) and then at Bally's (2008). We've previously stayed midweek (for cheapness), however this time we're staying on a Saturday and Sunday (11th August - 13th August), as the Saturday night is my husband's birthday and he'd like to see Steel Panther.

So now I'm looking through all the room listings, and the differences between hotel rooms seems less pronounced. Normally when searching for a hotel room I look for what's in our budget and then check tripadvisor reviews but this time I'm just overwhelmed. Ideally we'd like to spend around the $150 a night or less level, however as it's the weekend is this reasonable? Any tips on the best way to search for the best deal as I feel like I'm taking a bit of a random approach at the moment.

Thanks

Susan

I think for that budget you would have to be down town or maybe one of the off strip resorts like the Orleans or South Point. On the strip you might be able to get IP especially with all the construction around there, or maybe Casino Royal.

Hi Pirviii,

Ok, that makes sense, so we probably need to raise our budget. As we've only stayed midweek previously (we payed $40 a night for Ballys) I didn't really have any idea on what was a regional budget. Would $200 be more reasonable?

Do you have any suggestions on web sites to search?

Thanks

There is still plenty about. Flamingo Go Deluxe worked out to be $324 plus tax through smartervegas.com, and there are no resort fees. Seems like a pretty good deal for a weekend.

I just looked at http://www.smartervegas.com and you can get Ballys for your dates for under $150 and no resort fee. There are other offers if you want to try some place different just be aware that some places charge a resort fee so add that in when comparing prices.

I went to hotels.com and put in your dates. This is what I found, prices are per night. I just listed price shown you still need to add tax and resort fees if the hotel has any. I think you have lots of choices, all hotels listed are on the strip.

Aria - $164

New York New York -$101

MGM - $124

Tropicana - $81

Treasure Island - $140

Mandalay bay - $157

Monte Carlo - $98

Mirage - $173

Vdara - $159

Do you mean $150 per night (so for the two nights a budget of $300) or $150 for the two nights together. I note that Luxor, Excalibur, and Monte Carlo are probably within that price range if you mean $300 for the two nights. Flamingo and Bally's and Harrah's might also be ok (see Mick's post above for costs).

This is a link to the Las Vegas Hotel (formerly Hilton) (copy & paste link)

Price shows @ $89 for each of the Fri & Sat. No resort fee. Can upgrade for nominal per website. Located quite far down the strip but may work for you.

If you book through lowcostusa.co.uk they tend to include resort fees & tax in the prices. having a quick look you can get (TOTAL RATE):

Tropicana- £110 ($165)

Ballys- £118 ($177)

Monte Carlo- £158 ($237)

Planet Hollywood- £172 ($258)

Flamingo GO room £175 ($262)

Aria- £232 ($348)

Cosmo- £255 ($382)

These are just some of them, as I say they are total rates for the entire weekend and include taxes (& fees unless stated!!).

Good luck!
