St. Patrick's Celebration - Las Vegas, NV

Its been announced that Elevation Canada, Elevation USA and possibly (fingers-crossed) Johsua Tree will be playing St. Patrick's Day Celebration gigs in Sin-City; ever since the first announcement, I've made a number of daily and weekly checks of hotel occupancy..Room rates are outrageous compared to a couple years back. with the help of bonosgirl84, I've learned that the city is going to be swamped with conventioneers!

LAND IMPROVEMENT CONTRACTORS OF AMERICA, CIRCUS CIRCUS; dates 3/15/05-3/19/05 (225 persons)

NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF OILSEED PRODUCTS, HYATT REGENCY LAKE LAS VEGAS; dates 3/15/05-3/20/05 (500 persons)

ELECTRONIC TRANSACTIONS ASSOCIATION THE MIRAGE; dates 3/15/05 - 3/17/05 (1700 persons)

CON-EXPO - CON/AGG LAS VEGAS CONVENTION CENTER; dates 3/15/05 - 3/19/05 (135,000 persons)

The last convention is expecting 135 THOUSAND attendees...there go the rooms!!!

i just called around. i started with excalibur, and i got as far as newyorknewyork having no rooms, and harrah's being $360 per night before i called excalibur back. good old excalibur. i booked the 17th and 18th for $155.95 per night. i have to pay for at least one night by feb. 17th, one month prior to arrival. this rate is available to everyone.

that's a hell of a deal, considering the conventions and spring break.

seriously. if you are going, book your rooms NOW. at least have them held, if not paid for. you can always cancel later. and don't forget about all of the great hotels around las vegas that aren't on the strip. places like texas station and sunset station. green valley ranch. the fiesta. i have stayed at some of these hotels and they are fine.

i just keep staying at excalibur, because the more i do, the more discounts they send me.

Using bg's suggestion, I stayed off the strip and found a LaQuinta Inn ... got a double-double for us and Doozer at $150 but its within 2 miles of JW Marriott...

This stuff seems to fall in my lap...BAW laughs when I get her to the airport 3 hours ahead of time; I just wanna be ready for the unexpected....I respect the 'what if' syndrome....

Honorary Ambassador for St. Patrick's Day...I'll need a green hat!



Wish you could be there.
