I have yet to look for hotel reservations for 5 days. I am scheduled to arrived in Las vegas in Mid of Sept 2008. As las vegas is a huge city of Casino hotels chains and bright lights, i am utterly confused about which hotels are very much suggested and highly recommended.
Furthermore, a constrained Budget between $100-$150 per night would limit a number of great hotels. Perhaps , any Vegas locals or frequent traveller would start by pointing out a few selection of hotels based solely on your experience. I am not particularly not very fussy person. Need a good location and accessible one. Of course, a pleasant stay would be the best.
Anyone kindly start the ball rolling ? Please ?
Hi check out the Circus Circus, i stayed there last year with the wife, recomended by Vegas Mike,the hotel is towards the bottom end of the strip but found it ok
Circus Circus is okay, but primarily for those traveling with younger children.
If you are traveling as a couple or with older children (teenagers or above), I'd suggest you try either the Tropicana or Bally's Las Vegas. Both of these are right in the "heart" of the Las Vegas Strip (the place you want to be) and have excellent pools along with major showrooms and comedy clubs onsite.
Tropicana is on the same corner as MGM, Excalibur, New York-New York, and just steps from the Luxor and Mandalay Bay.
Bally's is on the same corner as Caesars Palace, Bellagio, next door to Paris Las Vegas and just down the way from the Treasure Island, the Mirage, the Treasure Island, and the Venecian. It's also not far from the Hard Rock Hotel, the Palms and the Rio.
Thanks very much for the input. Will proceed to check out the price of those mentioned hotels. Well, i am considering hard whether to spend a night at Williams near the Grand Canyon. Will travel through The Grand Canyon Railway, www.thetrain.com.
Maybe you guys could help give comments about spending a night over there. Really Appreciate your humble views.
Does anyone know any great reservation sites with low rates ? i usually use www.hoteltravel.com but it seems that the price tend to be higher that the hotel sites itself.
When you find hotels you are interested in, go to their individual websites and see what they are offering on their Internet specials.
I did a quick search for mid Sept. and came up with some good prices. As you know, the entire US is in a bit of a slump due to petrol prices, mortage crisis, etc. As a result, most hotels in LV have lower their rates to intice visitors to Vegas during this slower time. I looked here, but any on the Vegas search engines will yield similar results.
I was quoted around $30/nite by many hotels, some on the Strip, downtown, others on the Boulder Strip. This was for the week of Sept. 15-20. Weekends are always higher than midweek. I thought the Sahara Hotel was quite a good deal at average rate of $59 for 5 nites. Older hotel but still on the Strip. Another option is the Plaza Hotel downtown. Average room rate of $36 for 5 nites. That rate will be hard to beat. The Plaze is on the bus route back to the Strip. Since you won't be spending much time in your room, it makes sense to 'sleep cheap' and use the money saved for other options: shows, restaurants, shopping, gambling, etc.
Send me a PM if you have any questions.
I think vegasmike6's suggestion for booking is best, but other popular options are the following:
expedia.com, travelocity.com, kayak. com or hotels.com--also don't forget travellerspoint's partner site: momondo.com

Some of the best prices for vegas hotels can be found but booking directly with the hotels online as they usually have deals on their sites.
