Hi All

I'm off to vegas for a few days in feb as part of an extended USA trip and was wondering if anyone had any hotel tips seeing as many people here will know it well.

I'm after somewhere decent that's good value without being in the back end of no-where and not too far from the strip.

Thanks

the stratosphere often has good deals and is at the north end of the strip.
the sahara is just east of that, or one big block off the strip, and is the northern terminus of the monorail - it also typically has bargains prices.

I've been getting emails from the Luxor for rooms starting at $49 a night. Unbelievable. I'm not sure what the requirements are or even if the offer is still valid, but Vegas is hurting bad right now. Haggle.

Don't go too cheap on the room. Because those rooms get rented by college aged kids and they get really beat up.

In Vegas you can get luxury accomadations at reasonable rates. I remember staying at the Four Seasons a couple years back and it was just over $200 per night. Not really expensive considering you are at a Four Seasons with all that luxury and service.

Cheers for the info, i think i'll sign up to a few mailing lists and see if i can get a good deal.

one thing i've noticed is that prices on the weekend are vastly different to mid week, i think i'll try and time it so i dont hit a weekend!

I've stayed in New York New York, Luxor and Excalibur. Maybe it was the room we had but the Loxor and Excalibur seemed a bit dated. I really liked New York, New York. I ate in Mandalay Bay, that seemed very nice. Near the top of the food chain is the Bellagio.

We paid around $350 per night in NY NY, but that was back in 2007. I'm sure you can get a better deal now.

Excalibur is, indeed, a bit dated and needs more than a touch up, but they offered a very good price and I felt safe there. The staff is good. If you are a guy traveling alone, it's fine.

The problem with Mandalay Bay is that it at one end of the strip, not in the middle of things. They are used for conventions. It's not especially Las Vegasish.

I would look for the best price of the nicer hotels on the strip. New York, Excaliber, Luxor, Mirage, Caesars Palace, Bellagio...

After all, nobody spends more than a few hours at night in their room while in Las Vegas.
