4 nights

The Grand Canyon is worth it

You must not be tempted by low rates at 3rd tier hotels, stick to midprice or better

Stick to this list; Mandalay Bay, Luxor, NYNY, MGM (esp.Signature), MonteCarlo, Aladdin, Paris, Caesars, Bellagio, Mirage, TI, Wynn,

Rio (1 km off strip with shuttles)

March Madness is going on in Vegas in March. It's a tough month for any kind of discounts. Stay Sunday through Thursday for the better prices. Weekends are more costly. 5 nights would be a good start on your first trip. The Casinos are so huge, it takes time to see all they have to offer. Haven't done the Grand Canyon so I can't comment.

Follow this site for a while to see what people think are good shows, and great places to eat.

Ballys and Harrahs would also be decent places to stay.

Barbary Coast is OK, but an aged midget casino like BC is a travesty for a first trip

Quick question, why is March so hard to get discounts? I just booked for March and I think I got a pretty good deal (at least I hope so) for a better hotel (the TI). Is something special going on in March? Is it because of Mardi Gras or something?

See my post above. Hoosiers? the old Bob Knight? Chair throwing? Screaming, lol!? Lots of BB fans there this time of year.

I agree that 5 nights is just about perfect, it's long enough to get a lot of things done but not so long as to break the bank or make you stick to a really tight budget. Sun- Thurs is what I would recommend arriving early on Sunday so you can have a nice Champagne brunch while you wait on your room....

A minimum of 4 nights.

It's easier to tell you what you can miss:

The Stratosphere

CircusCircus

Riviera

But do not miss Downtown.

thanks for all your suggestions.

I still haven't booked, so would feb be a better time to go then march ? we could go in feb too.

also would you recommend spending a night in grandcanyon or a day trip is good enough?

I was thinking 1 night grandcanyon and 3 nights vegas ?

Check out the convention website, then choose a time when less people are scheduled to be there: (convention-wise)
