Hi John, I have yes and hotel prices direct are double what this website are offering .... The company are offering 169 dollers for a suite at palazzo the hotel price is 369 dollar for the same suite.... Very strange I think...

Its not unusual at all for 3rd party sites to be cheaper than hotel/casinos 8 months in advance. Right now you want to buy the room a lot more than they need to sell, so the price is high. The best rates for Palazzo will come out when the dates get closer. BTW: $169 at Palazzo is too high for most weekdays in April.

Try this: Check the same rates on this sight for Palazzo from Sept 16th-21st 2012. Then see what you can get booking Palazzo direct or through a discount code from smartervegas.com. You won't find a big difference on those dates.

Also, compare the rates on that website to those on Smartervegas.com. Standard rates on the hotel website may be higher, but their promo rates probably aren't.

If you are booking hotel separate from airfare, no third-party site is going to have better rates than the hotel's own site. You can find promo offers on a site like SmarterVegas but they are the hotel's own offers and you are still going to the hotel's website to book.

I agree, it almost seems too good to be true.

For example, eight nights at the Wynn on 20 March 2013 for a Deluxe Double Panoramic room is £1,080 on Clever-hotels.com, yet on Hotels.com and Expedia, the same room is £1,845. That's a huge difference.

Booking directly with the Wynn using the EARLYBOOKING code comes out at around £1,749.

One important thing to keep in mind - check the cancellation policy if you book through the clever hotels website - sometimes they are much more stringent - also, often, the other websites will charge you for the ENTIRE stay up front, rather than just one night's deposit.

Woodchops, I'm currently staying in The Palazzo on a booking made through Clever Hotels. Like yourself I was a bit worried because it was much cheaper than any other website but I've had no problems.

Full payment was taken at the time of booking but was fully refundable up to 24hrs before checkin. As long as you're okay with paying for the stay in advance then go for it.
