Anyone know a good website for hotels that have cheap rates?
My husband and I are going to Las Vegas and we still need to book our hotel. We already purchased our plane tickets.
I have checked expedia,priceline, and orbit but they are all the same price. Didn’t know if anyone would know of a hidden secret/website when it came to hotel booking.

Finding nice hotels at good prices in Vegas isn’t really that great or easy, even with sites like priceline, booking.com, orbit, etc. It’s all expensive unless you’re going during the week in off season. (This is assuming you want to stay on the strip).
What I would suggest is lasvegasadvisor.com. Sign up, and you’ll have access to all of the options for different hotels.
I used this site, and I am going in late September; I got a high floor, remodeled room with a view and 2 queens at the MGM Grand for $130/night, for a Friday and Saturday. I haven’t been able to find anything comparable, unless it is at somewhere like the Flamingo or the Quad.

@ThunderStruck: Yahoo recently ran this article about a budget Vegas hotel:
Also, if you’re an AAA member don’t forget to mention that! 🙂

We went two years ago and I don’t remember the rates being so expensive.

Have you tried Hotwire, or doing the “Name your Price” thing on priceline? You can get some deals that way, if you’re comfortable with not knowing exactly what you’re going to get (but you have control over the area the hotel is in, and the star level).
I used to do Priceline all the time, got hotel rooms where the rate on their website was $200+ for around $50 a night. Haven’t done it in a long time though.

@kmb727: We actually used the name your own price our first time (two years ago) we bid $100 and it was approved for the Palazzo! But this was going to be our last resort this time if we ended up not finding any good deals. I just have heard people say how they have gotten great deals and wondered where the hell to find these “great deals”

@ThunderStruck: trivago is good
It compares Expedia, hotels.com, venere, travelocity etc

@ThunderStruck: ha, I know right — seems like everybody finds these killer deals, but when I look, I can’t find anything! good luck – and have fun!

They collect all the hotel promos in one place so you can see where the best deals are.
I also have gotten awesome rates simply by logging into harrahs or mlife with my players card (and I DON’T play hardly ever, I just have a card). Between those two they own almost all of the casinos with the exception of Venetian/Palazzo and the Wynn properties.
I just had 4 nights at Paris (Wed-Sun) for a total of a little over $400 (including taxes and resort fees) because I got rates through my harrahs card (and once again, I never use it so it’s certainly not comps). Fridays and Saturdays are the most expensive so I thought that was a great deal.
There are only a few I avoid. I hate Bally’s, the Quad, and Excalibur (that smell) so I generally won’t stay there. Flamingo can be fun and always seems to have cheap rates. While I don’t care for the casino at Harrahs or the pool, the rooms are nice and they are also really cheap.

Really does depend when you intend on traveling to Vegas, as they can have quite good deals especially this time of the year.
GetARoom.com though is the site I often use for finding competitive prices for hotels when I’m planning a trip.
At the moment prices seem to be starting at as little as $22 p/day onwards for popular hotels near the strip. So, is definitely a good time to head over there 🙂

Hi @LuckyTraveler: I see this is your first post on WBee… so a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”
You will note that the OP (Original Poster) posted this Question 2 months ago, and stated she was travelling at the end of September.
So altho your info is probably useful… she has no doubt come & gone.
For future reference… be sure and check the dates when replying to topics… as many here are Date sensitive (especially on the Honeymoon & Travel Board)
Hope this helps,
