Book your rooms asap, it's a weekend, prices will jump.

MGM is relatively affordable, actually.

Reason is they have over 5,000 rooms to fill every night - one of the largest hotels on the planet.

Or else, try the Motel 6 across the street, even better prices there.

I checked through MGM and they gave me hotel rooms that were 350 a night PER room!! Relatively affordable?!

I need to look for something a bit more affordable for two nights because my friend and I have tickets to both shows... "nosebleeds" and GAs...

go to tripreservations.com and also lasvegas.com

but you have to pay 100% in advance on them.

First, check each hotel's web site, sign up for their email specials, because you only have to pay the one night's deposit on them. The best rate I saw a few days ago was still at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is a nice place to stay, and the last stop on the monorail that goes right to the MGM.

The Las Vegas Hilton is actually a good option. Nice hotel, not too crazy there, and not too far from the strip.

considering I get a lot of deals for Vegas thru the mail, I may wait.

MGM I wouldn't want to stay there. It's huge!

I've stayed at the Flamingo and almost got lost to my room.

I felt I was in the movie The Shining because the hall just got longer and longer.

LOL!

Yes, it's the weekend but good deals will be available.

Also remember that many of the hotel/casinos on the east side of the Strip have access to the new monorail in Las Vegas. It runs to the MGM, giving you easy, cheap access to the venue.

If you do Vegas right, all you need is a locker so you have a place to hang your coat.

I disagree. I used to think that staying at a crappy hotel was ok in Vegas, I mean, how often would you be there, right? Wrong. For me there are some essentials.

1. Clean bed spreads that at least appear to be newer than 1974. The Tropicana is not the place to stay if you're into this type of thing like I am. I don't want to have to bring a sleeping bag to a hotel.

2. A hip crowd. (That's a PC way of writing - "hot girls") The first time I went to LV, I stayed at the Circus Circus for $35/night. I cannot disuade you enough from doing this...unless of course, you like hundreds of crying, obese 12 yr olds in sweat suits waiting in the (crappy) buffet line. Hard Rock and the Palms are my favorites, but the MGM, Mandalay, Bellagio, Venetian, Mirage, Luxor, Rio, Treasure Island, Alladin, Paris, New York, and I'm sure the Wynn, aren't far behind. (Incidentally, I hate Caesars Palace too but for that's a whole different post entirely...)

3. A poker room. That's just me though - without poker, I'm subject to losing a bundle playing games of chance (blackjack, roullette....um...war - no, seriously, war), rather than a game of skill. If gambling isn't a vice, I guess this one doesn't matter for you. (By the way, MGM just added a very nice 30-odd table poker room.)

4. Spa. There are some truly amazing Spa's in Las Vegas. Each one, if you're staying at that hotel runs around $20-30 for a day pass. Sound like a lot? Sure. But when you're hung over from a 36-hour bender, it's worth every single penny. Trust me on this one.

If anyone is doing Vegas for the first time and wants some advice, I love to give it. It's my favorite city that I've ever been to, and I wouldn't have missed these shows for anything!

i don't mean to go totally off topic, theoeiii

but how do you figure blackjack isn't a game of skill.

fitzgerald's is a good place too, in old vegas, if you don't have to be on the strip itself.....i've stayed there a couple times, and it has always been clean, and most importantly, i've had some decent luck at the tables!
