1. Re: Hotel Recommendations

Specific dates will make a difference as weekend rates (Fri/Sat) can be around 3 or 4 x midweek rates - are you looking for 3 people in one room or two rooms - if the former you'll need a room with 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa.

What are you looking for in a hotel ? - great pools, fine dining etc. I start by suggesting you look at Venetian/Palazzo as it offers the usual Las Vegas experience.

Look at the Bella Suite at the Palazzo. It's towards the north end of the strip but still close enough to the action to make it a good first time spot. Two queens plus a large sofa. Great dining options at the Venetian/Palazzo complex, plus you're right next door to the Wynn/Encore complex as well. Can't comment on pools, not my scene. The bookings system is running too slow for me to check, but I would think mid-week in April should easily be within that budget.

If you are looking for a unique stay your choices are vast for Las Vegas. Given that you are staying midweek that opens up a lot of opportunities that might have otherwise been impossible based on your budget.

Hotel32 (within Monte Carlo) - their standard rates for 04/15, 04/16, 04/17 is $350 a night (of course add tax and resort fee will be higher, but maybe you can find a promotion, they have one right now on facebook, but ends in March). I was thinking theLOFTS suite. You get complimentary pickup from airport and drop off when you depart. You get exclusive access to the 32nd floor (with elevator/key entry) including their lounge which serves soft drinks and snacks and light breakfast and such. Plus you get your own personal suite assistant. It might seem over-the-top or even a novelty experience, but they take their jobs serious and are very genuine in helping.

Palazzo - all Suite hotel and casino. Rooms are spacious and is ranked #3 on TripAdvisor, this is my choice of stay for my visit in Feb. I am going to be staying for a week with prestige (gives special lounge access, check-in, etc.) I think it is worth checking out, I opted for here versus Hotel32 because I couldn't get a Loft for my entire stay and their weekend rates are steep.

Mandarin Oriental - Amazing space, but seems more intimate, I could be wrong, definitely on the more spendy side. But I rarely see a bad review as they are ranked #1 on TripAdvisor.

Other considerations - Bellagio (Bellagio Suite might be out of price but seems very nice), Cosmopolitan terrace suite (plus has great dining options).

Note that you can get very good hotel rooms for much less than $350 a night. Prices in Las Vegas are generally less than similar hotels in other big cities like New York or Los Angeles. Most offer the option of two queen beds that would suit 3 people. For $350, though, midweek you could easily get two rooms or even a suite. Even the Mandarin Oriental, the most upscale hotel in the city often comes in in the $200 range. So when you say you want to spend that much, is it because you really want something superluxe, or is it because you are not familiar with the pricing of LV hotels? A search of a travel search engine like Kayak will give you the lay of the land. Then if you see some hotels you are interested in, this forum can help you decide which ones you might like better.

I can't personally recommend anything around that sort of money, as we always go to lower cost but well located properties like Bally's.

I reckon the most important thing, once you've set your budget, is location. And if you can find something you like at Bellagio, Caesar's Palace or Paris, which are among the best located properties, go for it!

You'll be on Shanks' pony a lot, checking out all the fantastic casinos (for their 'wow' factor, even if you're not gamblers), so it's essential to base yourself in a good, central location.

When checking out hotel prices, just bear in mind:

1. tax - 12%

2. resort fees - vary; see http://www.smartervegas.com/resortfees.aspx

3. hotel rates go through the roof on Friday & Saturday nights; so, if possible, aim to be in Vegas mid-week.
