How to book one room/suite with 3 kids?

Hi!

We are a family from Sweden planning on arriving on Monday March 25 and leaving on Thursday March 28, 2013. We will bring our 3 kids (age 7, 9 and 13). We would like to stay in one room or a suite, or with connecting doors but I can’t figure out how to book. If try to book with 3 kids, I get no rooms showing on any of the websites I’ve been trying. Should I not make reservations for the kids that can share a bed? Most hotels say that there is no extra charge for kids if no extra bed is needed. So should I book for 4 and then mail the reception for an extra bed?

Also, is the MGM a good choice for us? The kids are hoping to be able to spend some time in a nice pool. I know it probably will be cold, but they are Vikings :-)

As for me and my husband, we know we won’t be able to hit the casinos with kids, we are hoping to eat nice, live nice and see some good family oriented shows/musicals. (and then my husband probably will sneak out to the casino after bedtime for me and the kids :-))

Look at a 2 bed room at Venetian/Palazzo. They call them suites, which they are not (so does Rio). You will have a large bedroom with 2 queen beds, a living room separated by a half-wall with an L shaped sofa, part of which pulls out into a sofa bed. Large bathroom.Most properties will have at least 1 pool open late march, weather depending.

Dont tell them. Or hide one in luggage.

HI

I would also go for Venetian. The Bella suite has 2 queens plus the sofa bed. Lovely big rooms for a family.

I never put kids in hotel bookings, as some room rates will reflect higher for more than 2 persons in a room. After booking, I just call the hotel front office directly and request a room with two beds and a rollaway, if needed. They will usually notate the booking, then I request the same at checkin. Never any problems or extra charges.

Of course, if you can book a suite ahead of time, all the better. Depends on your budget.

MGM, in my opinion, is a good location for you and your kids. Great pool there with a lazy river.

Venetian/Palazzo is also good with the Fashion Show Mall & Caesar's Forum Shops both easily walkable.

You really can't go wrong, either way.

Thank you, I will take a look at Venetian/Palazzo. Havn't heard of it, but last time I went to Vegas I stayed at the Luxor which then was new... So much have changed I guess.

To not tell them about the third kid was a creative idea that might back-fire don't you think ? ;-)

Flamingo Go Mini suite has two rooms, a bed in one and a fold out bed in the other. Both rooms have bathrooms, refrigerators and TVs.

"To not tell them about the third kid was a creative idea that might back-fire don't you think ?" In order to receive 2 beds at most properties you need to book for at least 3 people. A few properties will guarantee 2 beds, such as the V/P, since you reserve that particular room type.

Most properties show beds as a "request". If you don't book a room that guarantees 2 beds you take a chance of checking in and being told the only rooms left have 1 bed.

Most years MGM does not have their lazy river in use weekdays in March, for that reason I would suggest looking elsewhere.

The Bella Suite at Venetian has an excellent design for a family your size, with 2 beds and a sunken living area with large couch. And because it isn't a real suite, parents can still watch the kids in the living area. But the pool at Venetian doesn't have much to offer for kids.

Monte Carlo has a nice lazy river, usually open then, and a small wavepool that the younger ones will like but the older one will probably think is lame. But the rooms at MC will be a little small for your family.

THEhotel might be a good solution. It gives you access to the Mandalay Bay pool area, which you will all absoulutely love. Their beach and huge wavepool along with their lazy river should both be in use.

THEhotel rooms are REAL SUITES, with a seperate living room and an extra 1/2 bath. With two beds in the bedroom you could keep the youngest kids with you, while the older one might like the living room for their own.

While your kids may be Vikings, I have been in Vegas in March when it was so windy you couldn't go near the pools. Hopefully, you will get lucky with the weather but I would have some other plans in case they can't spend the day at the pool.

In March Vegas can still not be weather for the pool. Check the weather before you leave Sweden.

Also check things for your children to do in Vegas.

There are things for children, I don't know, but others have given lists

THotel sounds great. Lots of room and actual suites.
