I just purchased my pubcon ticket and used the link provided on the pubcon site to try and book a room at the grand for the event, but that link sends you to a page that only allows you to book from the 7th-11th - which would be difficult for those who elect to attend the training sessions on the 7th.
I called up reservations and they were able to book me at the $69 rate from the 6th-11th so I think it's just an error on the reservations form the MGM Grand is sending users to.
Thanks for negotiating such a great rate Brett&Team, $69/night is a substantial discount on the Grand Tower rooms.
Yep, it's working now. I just booked from Sunday through Friday (wow, a week away from work is a real killer, but there you go). No problem with the MGM's system, got the $69/night for all 5 nights.
Recommend that anyone who's planning on going book now - today. Or you'll wake up one day and all the discounted rooms will be gone and it'll cost you a few hundred more. Had that happen before, my wife doesn't like it when my laziness costs money.
A daily resort fee of $22.40 (includes applicable taxes) will be added upon check-in.
Friggin hotels. a resort fee. WTH is that. I hate backend gouges.
