Default Best Vegas Hotel for the Value

I am trying to plan a Vegas trip with my friends. Which hotel would you advocate for the best bang for my buck?

Any good stories of Vegas can also be placed in here to give me any my buds some ideas to do.

Usually stay at the Orleans. It's not pretty, but its cheap and has a great poker room.

It really depends on what you guys want.

If you guys play high limit tables MGM, Paris etc. is the ticket for you.

If you are a little lower Treasure Island, Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock etc.

If I had to pick a pretty central place I would say Planet Hollywood. Nice rooms almost middle of the strip, coulple very nice hotels right next to it(Paris, Ven), a mall underneath it, tables are not crazy expensive.

The Orleans is a great place also its on the lower end of the "nice" scale but the rooms are clean and over all the hotel is nice. You will need to take a cab to the strip but its about 10 bucks eachway. Ive stayed here a couple times for March Madness. Depending on the day sometimes the Orleans can be just as much as Planet Hollywood or Treasure Island normally its cheaper but not always.

A place I like to go to is called Stoneys its a huge country bar Im not a big fan of country but Thursday is ladies night and this place gets packed. its well worth the trip. Its at the far end of the strip but any cab driver can get you there. Its not real fancy just jeans and a t shirt type place but they do get some pretty nice "talent" in there.

is it all guys

i stayed at the Hard Rock and it was worth it for the pool scene....seriously, they charge $50 a head to get into that party for non-Hard Rock people, and its PACKED with girls and people havign a great time...

its the best place Ive ever stayed at there...I stayed at MGM Grand and the Luxor...Luxor was much more relaxed if that is your type of thing

Ya I have heard about the sweet pool party at the Hard Rock, My friend and I went over there, but the line was huge. I am sure its worth it though, but we went and played poker instead.


Its a little old school and the rooms arent as nice, but the Flamingo Hilton is smack dab in the middle. You are equal distance to both ends of strip, so you can party up at Venetian/ Harrahs, and Cesars, or head down to Luxor MGM and Mandalay bay for all really close distances. Its pretty cheap, and the pool is really fun.

Pros; Location, price and pool,
Cons, not as nice of rooms, and might run into some families, but you might get that at any of the big hotels

Hard rock is fun but it is a little off the strip (the pool scene is pretty insane!). The hottest collection of girls ive ever seen in one place was at the Palms, but again is off strip and can get a little pricey. Treasure Island isnt a bad place to stay because its relatively inexpensive and right in the middle of the strip.

Right now, vegas occupancy is a little low, so you can get some good deals you normally cant get.

I forgot about the Luxor. They always have a decent special running and the rooms are nice. They also have a couple clubs inside the hotel.

Whatever hotel you want I would checkout i4vegas.com and I would also check outfatwallet.com

fatwallet has a listing of current hotel promotions and the codes so you can book them online.

Also try the 20 dollar trick.

When you go to check in to your room, slip a 20 between your creditcard and ID and when the person checking you in sees it ask if there are any free upgrades. It doesnt always work but I would say its worth it when it does, last vegas trip i got upgraded to a suite. Although the trip before that the lady said they did not have any upgrades and kept the 20 but hell im here to gamble anyway why not gamble on my room?

YES! The Flamingo is perfect if you cant spend a ton of $$$, and the pool there is really fun. Its also right in the middle, so you can walk across the street to the Bellagio, or MGM. Its a great location.

Yeah, i guess its not bad if you are on a real tight budget, but it is kinda a dump. My suggestion is TI...MGM is always fun if you can get a good deal.

Well, hell yeah! But it sounds like hes trying to be affordable, so i figured a centrally located place is always the ticket.
My GF has a cousin who works at the Bellagio, so i'm set! I freakin love that sportsbook!!!

Most of the places downtown are moderately priced as well. Union Plaza, El Cortez, and even the Four Queens are decent deals. Not glammy but solid places to crash.

The Flamingo has historically been a little dumpy, but I was just there a couple weeks ago and went to see George Wallace there, and they put a lot of money into it within the past year and it's very much improved. My sister lives out there and knows the scoop and said they put tens of millions into the upgrade recently. I didn't stay there though so I don't know about the rooms, but she said they were totally revamped.

I stayed at the Orleans because my brother-in-law has a hook up there (free room!!). We always stay there and it's always nice. Off the strip a bit, but cabs are cheap or you can wait for the shuttle. The fights on Fridays there are great too. They had a great card of up-and-comers when I was there (two great knockouts and a couple of 4-round brawls) and tix were only $25.

i'd suggest going w/ mgm grand signature if you've got a big group, can get a two bed room suit w/ 2 additional hideaways and have 4 total beds all for around 350 a night if you book through vrbo.com

Thats pretty cool. I didnt know that the Flamingo went through that phase. I used to stay there during the "dumpy" era but I didnt think it was that bad. But then again I wasnt in my room much, just used it as a place to crash for the good location and cool pool. I will have to go back and check it out after the renovation. I did see the Jimmy Buffet addition with the restaurant, which was decent.

The Wynn just for the poolside black jack tables. The scenery can be a little distracting however.
