Hi, my partner and I are planning a trip to Las Vegas in January 2014 for 10 nights.

Can anyone recommend hotels. We have been looking online but are not sure which hotels are best.

Ideally we would like to be close to shops, casinos, restaurants etc

Thank you in advance for your help

I can easily tell you which hotels are "best". In fact so can you----you can tell by price. But that doesn't mean they are the right hotel for you.

In order for others to really be of help they will need EXACT DATES and appx budget. Know that it is not unusual for the same room to be $69 one night and $179 the next.

Also any indication of your preferences, luxury vs economy, pool or spa important, etc, will result in better replies.

A little more information please.

1. Budget. How much roughly (in $US) are you happy to spend per night on a room.

2. Exact dates. One or two big conventions in January send hotel rates very high.

3. A little bit about you. Ages, how you plan on spending your time, anything else that you feel may be of help when it comes to deciding what hotel could be right for you.

Edit. kt beat me too it!

The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) runs from Jan 7 - 10. That means that rates from about the 5th-11th will be very high. CES estimates 2014 crowd at 155,000 attendees and that does not include the plus ones or exhibitors..

Thank you for your replies.

We would pay around $100 per night if possible...(is that realistic)

Does not need to be anything luxurious ...just clean, comfortable and safe.

I will be 33 when we travel, my partner is 44 but we enjoy nights out watching shows, having a few drinks etc. also live shopping.

We are not set on any date, just anytime in January

Again thank you so much for your help

$100 per night will get you a nice 3 star hotel, such as MGM, TI, PH or maybe Mirage. But only if your stay does not include Friday and Saturday nights, or the CES Convention.

If you are going to include weekends, you will have to move down to 2 star properties like Ballys, Flamingo, Harrahs, maybe NYNY.

If your dates aren't set and are flexible, I suggest you make rates one of the factors in your choice.

In January (if I recall) prices are pretty decent exluding major events, you should be able to find Caesars Palace,Treasure Island or Mirage around that range. I would recommend them in that order...and I would check smarterlasvegas.com.

I wouldn't recommend Stratosphere for a first visit to Vegas simply because of its location at the extreme north of the Strip with nothing of note close by. The money you'd save by staying in its cheap rooms would be cancelled out by the expense and time you'd spend getting to the places that you want to see and experience.

For a 10 night stay, I'd look at splitting your time between two hotels. That way you can get two different aspects of Vegas and stay at a cheaper place over the weekend to help your budget and still be able to enjoy a nicer property on midweek dates.

"Ideally we would like to be close to shops, casinos, restaurants etc"

Stratosphere isn't close to any of these. Stratosphere is as isolated as a Strip hotel can possibly be. In fact even though it is on Las Vegas Blvd, most don't even consider it a Strip Hotel.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, all viewpoints are found here, and there are very few things on which we all agree. But it will be the OVERWHELMING concensus that Strat is not a good choice for a 1st time Vegas Visitor..
