Pubcon 2008 Vegas hotel info
good room rates still available

Brett's post here:
says that the conference block of rooms at the Treasure Island sold out in August.

I called neighboring hotels to get rates:
- Mirage, $662 for 5 nights
- Venetian, $800+ for 5 nights

These were out of my budget, so I called the Treasure Island with plans to beg for the conference rate of ~$109/night. The agent offered it to me straight away... then gave an additional AAA (auto club) discount.

Vegas may be hurting; e.g., shares of WYNN are down 50% over the past year. So if you're still needing to book a room, call the Treasure Island soon and you'll probably be able to match the sold-out conference rate.

You may want to carefully craft how you ask for that $99/night room. Or put another way, there are rooms the agent can give you for $99/night and then there are rooms that are $99/night. Being polite and congenial does have it's advantages.

Don't ask for a certain dollar amount because it may be higher than the current rate. They'll probably take the higher rate of course. As of day before yesterday, there is a direct online only Treasure Island hotel deal with rates during Pubcon week from $95 ($71 on Thursday). MGM, on the monorail so actually a bit less walking (and without cab wait and fare) than TI, is down to $79 for that week as well.

I'm getting emails from MGM, Mirage, NY NY, TI, Bellagio just about every other day with some low rate and special offers. NY NY is offering room upgrades for the rest of the year. MGM will take 25% off anything (food, drinks, shows, etc) charged to your $89 room. It's crazy. The economy is hitting them too.
