Up to 50% off at Las Vegas hotels
Vegas.com has a bunch of hotel offers for up to 50% off. Some even include a food & beverage credit, like this one:
I’m not actually suggesting staying at Circus Circus; just pointing out that there are some potential deals here. $2/night (after the f&b credit but before the resort fee) is not bad!
But I would like to stay at the new, upscale SLS Hotel. (I previously wrote about how one could have stayed there for negative $14/night, exclusive of resort fees.)
Some good rates for that property can be found with this offer, such as this $55 rate:
Do note a few “quirks” of traveling to Las Vegas:
- Vegas is very much a weekend destination, so hotel prices skyrocket on weekends and holidays. The lowest rates are usually for midweek stays.
- Almost all hotels assess a “resort fee” that is payable at the property (not at the time of your online booking) and therefore not included in the quoted rate (although clearly disclosed, ideally). These fees are pesky but unfortunately common to the Las Vegas hotel market.
