Hi!

I would like any advice/assitance you can offer. I haven't seen anyone else on this Hotwire or Priceline forum with matching dates. I am looking to stay only in the Center Strip area. When I checked on Hotwire, the best deal seems to be $145/night for a 4* property. Any idea which hotel this is, base don the following amenities: casino, fitness center, pool, restaurants, high-speed internet, business center, golf nearby, tennis nearby and spa services? (trip advisor rating: 3.5 of 5.0 based on 300+ customer reviews.)

I ideally wanted to stay at Harrah's, and judging from the Hotwire "spotted" map, I think Harrah's is the only 3.5* hotel in the Center Strip? But, Hotwire is offering $169 for a 3.5* property so I figure I might as well get a 4.0* for cheaper.

When I've investigated rates, only one night--3/24 (saturday) skyrockets in price. This night runs about $200 minimum for a 3* or higher hotel. I am willing to pay an average of $150/night, and would even change hotels halfway if necessary.

If you think Priceline may be able to suit my needs better, let me know too.

Thank you very much!

You don't say why you want to stay at Harrahs (friends staying there, like the location, conference at that hotel, etc) so hard a little hard to advise but we can at least start...

The above HOTWIRE hotel is most likely the Aladdin, although the Paris and Caesars are 'distant' possibilities as well (same amenities, although they are rately received). However, you can book the Aladdin for $142/nite, and given there is no booking fee, it wold be about $10 less per nite than the above.

As well, near Harrahs, but slightly off-strip, is the Westin for just $110/nite.

I've stayed at Harrahs before and would have no problem staying there again for the right price, but based upon the above, rates at Harrahs for these dates are not that good and i think the other two links above represent much better value.

Does any of the above work well for your plans?

thanks for the quick reply.

the reason for harrah's is because friends are staying there and they REALLY want to stay in the same hotel. i'm going to try to convince them to go with the aladdin, or this $145/night 4* i'm seeing on hotwire.

if i need to book at harrah's, am i safe purchasing the 3.5* location on hotwire? i probably won't end up with another hotel, right? the 3.5* rate on hotwire is lower than the $180 averages i'm seeing for harrah's on other sites.

regarding the EasyClickTravel travel links you gave for the westin and aladdin...am i missing something? both say "off the record". or do you know from experience which properties these "off the record" ones are?

The EasyClickTravel properties are "off the record" but i know based upon the description what they are... you can also use the EasyClickTravel Off the Record Look Up Tool

To help ID the 3.5* property, please include the amenities HOTWIRE associates with that property.

For $169/night, the 3.5* on Hotwire has the following amenities: casino, pool, business center, golf/tennis nearby, spa services, fitness center, restaurant, high-speed internet.

On the EasyClickTravel site, I couldn't find their cancellation policy. Do you know the rules? I know Hotwire and Priceline have essentially non-refundable reservations, and I was hoping to have a back-up through EasyClickTravel.

Thanks!

At the bottom of the page with the hotel description you will see the canceallation policy for that hotel. They're almost always cancellable if cancelled 1-3 days before check-in date.

The 3.5* on HOTWIRE looks move like Ballys than it does Harrahs, so Ballys would be our best guess.

If you really want Harrahs, you can also try this:

Book directly on their website for $181/nite. Then call them and have them honor their "Best Rate Guarantee" where they will match the lower price plus an additional 25%. You can make the claim against EasyClickTravel where the same nites average to $178/nite, bringing your cost for this stay down to $135/nite.

However, even at $135/nite, i would try to convince the group to stay elsewhere as there are better deals out there (imo).

Thank you for your advice on how to get Harrah's for cheaper. I never would have known! But, when I tried to get their "Best Rate Guarantee", unfortunately under their "hot Deals", their price as about $174 per night. :) So there went that plan.

On top of this, now the 4* in the Central Strip is no longer $145/night...

Please let me know if you think I should keep on checking periodically, or if you have any other suggestions. Basically, I would most want to stay at Harrah's but if not Harrah's, any other casino in the Harrah's area that poses a great deal. I assume you would still suggest the Aladdin from the EasyClickTravel site?

Have a nice day!

Yes, and since they're both (Westin and z.hotel3D2303]Aladdin) cancellable up until a few days before your stay, i'd at the very least book one of them as a back-up as soon as possible since EasyClickTravel only gets a limited number of rooms at their contract price.
