Confused Any idea where to get good rates for Vegas hotel?
Spring break season hotels are like $150+, resort fee, tax. Looking at upwards of $220+ per night for a mediocre hotel.

also consider priceline- I've had pretty good luck getting even 5 stars for less than that (though not specifically over spring break)

Have you tried the promo codes at www.mycheapvegas.com? It just aggregates all the ones that come directly from the websites so you'll be booking direct. Usually will offer a good rate.

For your dates, I'd actually just recommend Excalibur. Decent rates and I believe all the rooms have been renovated, so probably best value. I think it'll be about $100/night after resort fees which is a lot lower than what you have.

side question, most hotels has this note: "There is an additional charge of $35.00 per occupant, per night, above 2 occupants per room." If you have one kid, can you avoid this $35 charge without let them see the kid when you check in?

I always just book for 2 people regardless of how many we have. Just get 2 keys and sneak the other people in. Really, nobody notices or cares.

Most hotels kids under 18 are free up to the occupancy limit.

I second on using the promo codes from www.mycheapvegas.com and to book directly with the hotel/casino, highly recommended doing this if you gamble. If you don't gamble you might save some money with Orbitz, they have a 15% off promo code, GOTIME.

Try Travelvegas,com. Excellent prices and if you get in on the semi annual sale going on now for all Caesars properties you can get rooms for 30.00 a night at Harrahs, the Linq and a few others at good prices. If you want you can go to totalrewards.com and book direct for the same price since Travelvegas.com just takes you to the direct link anyway. Also as mentioned above they all have the resort charge per night but its per room/night not per person.

I'd like to add my 2 cents, even if it might be a bit too late. I'm taking my second trip to vegas.. but I frequent Metropolis, IL and Tunica, MS quite often... too often for my paycheck haha. but if you're able to, hit you up a casino with TotalRewards (only because I believe they have better/more hotel). Or just get any local rewards card for a hotel of your choosing. Have a fun evening, and you'll be getting comp'd rooms to pretty much any TotalRewards hotel. Depending on how much you gamble, you'll probably get ATLEAST sunday-thursday comps to the cheaper hotels. I'll be staying at the Flamingo, again. You only pay for the resort fee/taxes, which ended up being about $120 for tuesday-saturday stay. I also had Ceasars Palace, but only for sunday-thursday, and didn't want to swap hotels in the middle.

GOOD LUCK! VEGAS IS AWESOME!

http://www.vegashotelspecial.com/ is a good site as well. Lists the current promos of all the Strip hotels.

In regards to occupancy. If you are traveling with 3, only book 2. Most if not all people are never questioned. Last time we booked 2 and had 4 in our room. I simply asked for additional key cards so I can put them in our safe.

If the strip location is not important, the Palms is a great option. The $20 trick works there all the time, so free breakfast and upgrade as well.

You slip a $20 bill between your ID and credit card at checkin and then ask if there's any "complementary upgrades" available.

It works at most vegas hotels to varying degrees.
