Finding Good Las Vegas Strip Accommodation
Looking at those great big theme hotels on
the Las Vegas Strip can cause a fair amount of
sighs. This is because many people assume that
they cannot get reasonably priced
accommodations in these hotels. The truth,
however, is that it is more than possible to
find good deals on hotel accommodations on the
Strip. And not just those smaller, seedier
hotels that are, quite frankly, scary. This is
about finding accommodation deals in the nice
The best way to go about it is to look for
Internet specials where you will find some
great deals on the Las Vegas Strip hotels. You
may find reasonable deals in places like
Expedia and Orbitz when you book a flight at
the same time, or book a rental car. However,
if you are only looking for a room they may
not have the best Internet specials.
If you are looking to just book a hotel
room at one of the themed Las Vegas Strip
hotels, check the hotel Web sites for
accommodations. Often, the hotels on the Strip
offer their own special deals. Some hotels,
like the Excalibur, even guarantee that they
will beat any other advertised price, and
offer to refund the difference if you get a
better rate someplace else.
Go during the week. Las Vegas is full of
great deals if you stay Sunday through
Thursday nights. Instead of going to Las Vegas
for the weekend, book for a stay during the
week. The nightly room rates are lower, and
some hotels even offer additional discounts
for shows with your booking during the week.
Stay at hotels considered "family
friendly." Sure, the Bellagio and the Venetian
are nice, but they also cost quite a bit.
Hotels like the Mirage, Excalibur, and Circus
tout a family setting. They cost a little
less, and you can still go and enjoy the
flower garden at the Bellagio or take a ride
on a gondola at the Venetian.
Plan a trip with friends. Even if you want
a romantic getaway and don't want to actually
do things with a group, it can be a great
saving if you book rooms together with two or
three other couples. Hotels offer you amazing
multiple room rates if you can book as a
group. So, for some wonderful discounts, try
booking multiple rooms for two or three
weeknights, on the Internet!
Above all, watch out for conventions, which
are a regular feature in Las Vegas. No matter
when you go you are sure to find some
convention or the other going on in Las Vegas.
Since space is at a premium during
conventions, hotels charge exorbitant rates.
Just make sure that the hotel you stay at is
not hosting a convention at the time of your
visit. Thus, it important to check the hotels?
convention schedule at the time of booking. If
possible, choose a hotel without a convention,
and try to plan your stay at a particular
hotel when there is no convention.
If you are willing to do some intelligent
searching for the best price, you will find it
easy to find a great accommodation deal on the
Las Vegas Strip. Select your hotel and time
your trip carefully to save on the room rates.
