Possible to match or beat a Hotwire rate by booking with a LV property directly using a promo code?
So far it seems, Hotwire is much lower than the rates posted by e.g. mycheapvegas.

Really depends what you're trying to book. Which section and star level are you trying to do? And what dates and price is hotwire giving you? Problem with hotwire is that it's non-refundable too.

Many thanks for your reply! I called MLife and have a slightly better idea of this convoluted process. They quoted me the 2br suite at $2800 for the suite. When I accepted and tried to book the CSR mentioned that I am not guaranteed the room-type I am paying for and if another guest with a higher casino status comes in they would get the suite and I would get downgraded. I am guaranteed a room, although the type isn't. If downgraded I would be refunded the difference at the prevailing check-in rate which will likely vary.

Since our goal was to do 6/suite this potential downgrade didn't make sense and I ended up booking the Bellagio Fountain View room online. One agent told me even that's not guaranteed.. they only guarantee a Resort room but another agent said it is guaranteed, only suites aren't. Oh and, also if anyone's interested the suites at VDara are guaranteed since it's not a casino property.

All quite confusing to me.

We likely won't be wagering anything to get Vegas hosts interested in us. In fact the VIP services quoted me a higher price than what I was able to book online. There was also a $200 credit promo online which worked out nicely!

Happy to report back my experience and if I can help answer any questions based on our experience in a couple of months.

Thank you.

Do you and and your friends plan on wagering a lot of money in the casino? If so, it'd be a good idea to get a casino host. This tends to work better if you already have some playing history. A good host can help you get access to nicer suites, clubs, etc.

For MGM properties, the "player's club" call center is called VIP Services. Unlike the general reservations number, each property has its own VIP Services desk which tends to be open a couple hours longer than typical business hours. These phone numbers can be found within the individual offers posted on your MLife account. There is no fee to use these call centers, though rates may vary from the promotions on your online account. Do note that online rates vary depending on which offer you select or if you simply use the booking widget without selecting an offer.

Do note that it can be significantly cheaper to book multiple standard rooms or basic suites than booking one deluxe suite. If booking a very deluxe suite, note that there's a small chance that you might end up with a different type of suite if there are enough VIP guests desiring the of suite you originally reserved.

On-strip, top hotels.

Maybe mixed experiences, but here's a case point from another thread about this same topic:

I used this last year and split my stay between bellagio and aria. Did 2 nights at bellagio for 248 with 200 dining credit and stayed at aria for 2 nights for 176 with 200 dining credit.

However at both the credits were only good at each specific resort and not all MGM properties. Bellagio would not allow the credit to be used at the spa either.

I Am not really sure if it belongs here or to a new topic, so feel free to move this:

On ROOMERTRAVEL.com I was looking for a place for my friend to stay and saw a listing for 50% OFF. The link is here:
https://www.roomertravel.com/hotels/...1193/43849073?

In case anybody needs it... My friend can't afford it just figured someone might want to take advantage of it...

Guys sorry my noob question.

I'm from Brazil and here we don't have / use coupons or discount codes like you guys.

Its our first time in Vegas (couple + 14 yrs daughter).

If its possible to help me...

1 - its possible to book anything cool around U$ 200,00 for 3 nights ? or its impossible ?

2 - I know normal hotels like best western and similar its viable to book, but I think we'll miss the LV experience with hotel.

3 - what you guys with all this expertise, suggest ?

Thank you so much.

Yes it is possible. Sunday through Thursdays are the cheapest. Do not even think about staying over a weekend or during a convention. There are many weeks throughout the year that are low times and you can get the best hotels for $119 a night. Where else in the US can you experience a 5 star hotel at that price. You can get Wynn, Bellagio or palazzo cheap at the right time with the right promo.

But to answer your question in my opinion I would check out Planet Hollywood. With right promos and time I've seen it for $59. It's center strip a nice hotel and you would get that Vegas vibe. Don't even think about staying at a best western type hotel in Vegas. Much too many choices.

It's only 3 days and the better hotels are only a few dollars so in the long run consider those.

Check those royal deals, don't know the link but it's in here. My sister stayed at Bellagio for $119 a night with a $200 resort credit. Aria had a similar deal. Both are wonderful hotels and strip locations.

If you want $200 total for 3 nights, it's doable but you'll have to do it on the weekdays and also the lower end hotels on the Strip. Because Las Vegas hotels charge resort fees, even a $30 room, after taxes, can end up being twice the price. I think the best bang for your buck for your budget would be Flamingo or Monte Carlo.

Another tip is to book direct using promotion codes from www.mycheapvegas.com

You want to also book ahead, and check back the promos every now and then. If the price goes down, just cancel and rebook at the lower price. Also, i'm not sure how many people u will be having, but just book for 2 people, once you set 3 or 4, they will charge you much more.

That's exactly what I do. And I would do Monte Carlo over Flamingo.
