Cheaper the better. I'm not coming to spend time in the hotel. :)
I'm with LynxFX, but I'm easy on the room rates - I want a clean safe place to stay, and as importantly, to park the car.

I'd actually prefer to burn some of my Hilton miles, so Hilton Family of Brands is a big plus! ;-)

:tu:I have no idea what rooms are going for in Las Vegas. Haven't been since Sep 95. I'll go with the majority.

I'm passing through on May 1st, and I'll see what my layover hotel can do, as well as some other well-known places. I've hit hotels.com, orbitz, and expedia, so I think I can get nice rooms for around $100 or slightly less, with options to upgrade...

Just looking through at vegas.com you can get some nice rooms for $100 or less. The price cuts in half for a sunday night. I'm not much of a gambler so I always walk from hotel to hotel anyway to see the different attractions.

I agree with LynxFX, but John makes a good point on safety.

The wife and I are coming in on the 15th and are staying a couple of nights at the Luxor for $150 before heading to TX for 5 days. (Then back to LV for the get together.)

Personally, I don't want to go much beyond $100 a night, but I'd do what the majority wants. I would think with our numbers, we should be able to get a nice stay at a descent rate, yes?

I put in 3 nights at the Luxor for those dates and it averaged out to $100/night so we should have no problem especially if we try to get a group discount. Any of those hotels on the main strip should have good security and hopefully garage parking.

I vote for whatever hotel (preferably on the strip) that gives us the best accommodations for our cars i.e. private display somewhere and/or reserved parking in the garage.

You may be able to find a dealer to display SLKs (new and pre-owned) so a hotel that has a showroom floor or will accommodate them outside at the entrance to hotel...

I agree-no need for anything expensive, we wont be spending any time in our rooms.

I agree with Kev (We're both coming from Germany). Gina and I are still planning to attend!

This may be an off the wall question, but will the proposed hotel accept pets? We have a Pug that loves the top down life and it would be a shame for her to miss it.




/rides on the bike and loves it as well... go figure.

Hey webslinger - Doubletree has a pet friendly policy I've taken advantage of in the past. No personal experience in Vegas, but....

Count me in on the Hilton. However, it is always nice to make sure the hotel has king size beds and a nice pool. You want to relax after being sunstroked!

Speaking from personal experience, Ive stayed at 4 hotels in Vegas within the last 3 years. The Plaza is in old downtown (near binions and all that) but you are far from walking distance to the strip. It's like $50 a night. Rooms are ok, but not what I would recommend. New York New York is one of my favorites, a fun hotel with safe parking and a cool concept. As recently as a week ago it was about $120 a night. The Venetian is ultra swank, but rooms are ~$200 a night last time I checked (although I see we can score $159 a night group rate if we book fast). Lastly as for non casino hotels, I've stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in multiple locations, to include DC, Vegas, and Austin and I'm ALWAYS pleased with their accomodations. Not regular holiday inns, can't speak for those, but the holiday inn expresses are good. Nice thing about them is that unlike a lot of the casino hotels, you have a mini refridgerator and microwave in your room. Most of the casino hotels (least the ones I've been to) only have that if you get a higher end suite, dunno why.

FYI, if you're staying on the strip, you can park in the garage at Caesar's Palace and walk to your hotel if you're less than satisfied with your hotel's parking arrangements. For casino-on-the-strip-hotel stays, I definately recommend New York New York for the money. It's not as nice as the Venetian, and the TV in the room is smaller, so if you wanna pay the extra $40 a night for the group rate that's a pretty good deal for the upgrade. The regular prices at the venetian are too much to justify, but an extra $80 for the two nights isn't that bad.

If you're flying, book your trip through Travelocity.com and you can likely get the hotel and plane ticket cheaper than you would get them separately. This is definately true for New York New York, as I just checked and it's more to book through the hotel than on travelocity, which had my room there for $119 a night for that weekend.

I know I sound like a salesman for these places lol. Like I said just speaking from experience.

One last thing, for anyone who has NOT been to vegas or has but has never tried it, the Buffet at The RIO is an absolute must. It's fantastic. Get there at 3:15pm and you pay the lunch price ($17 per person) but you get all the *better* stuff they bring out for dinner at 3:45 without paying the dinner price ($27 per person). Granted this is an SLK site and most of you don't care about 10 bucks, but hey I'm kinda a penny pincher when it comes to certain things lol even if I do drive an expensive car.

I think the majority of the group will be staying at the Venetian/Palazo (sp?). People are definitely welcome to book at a different hotel but remember: you'll be away from the rest of the group and the majority of meet spots will probably be centered around the groups hotel as it'll be easiest.
