Travelers come from all over the world to visit the gambling and entertainment mecca of Las Vegas. The recent opening of several family friendly attractions has meant an influx of families, too. Because the Nevada city is such a tourist hub, a hotel suite could easily cost $600 a night. Fortunately, if you know where to look, you should be able to find one for much less.
Try staying on the edge of the Las Vegas Strip. The big luxury hotels in downtown Las Vegas are usually the most expensive. Most hotels will run shuttles downtown, so you don't need to worry about missing out on any of the fun. The Las Vegas Leisure Guide has an extensive listing of hotels all over Las Vegas, along with room prices.
Book your vacation as a package. Booking a flight and room separately is often more expensive than booking them together. Package deals to Las Vegas usually include a flight, a room and some meals.
Book a regular room and then upgrade to a suite later. This option is a bit of a gamble, but if a hotel has extra rooms available, you may end up getting a good deal if you upgrade after your arrival.
Visit Las Vegas during the off-season. Vegas is always popular, but in the weeks after major holidays, prices tend to be down. Generally the hottest period is July and August, and the colder winter months of January and February are slightly less popular. Avoid major holidays if you want to get a good price on a suite.
Call the hotel directly. Travel websites don't always have the best deals. Ask the hotel clerk when cheap suites might be available. You just might be able to get a deal that's not even listed on the hotel website.
Check often. Websites change regularly, and room prices can vary wildly. Room sales often mean heavy discounts, and, because hotels don't want customers to hold out, good rates can spring up without warning.
