Eveyrone - please dont flame me for not searching. I have but still need some help. Background - Going to be flying from FL to LA for a short break. Then driving to Vegas on 11/14 - 11/18 and flying back from Vegas to FL. This is my 12 year anniversery and my wifes 30th birthday trip. We are on a budget but not cheap. We went to Vegas together almost 12 years ago (bellagio) and this is going to be our first time back. On hotwire where I usually book and they have a 5 star north strip room (we want to live it a little!) for $88 a night. I read the reviews and multilpe stated that it was not exactly on the strip and there was no casino. I dont know which hotel it is but was wondering your thoughts. The other is a mid strip hotel for $112 a night. Both prices are plus taxes. I plan to play some poker (1/2 NL) and maybe $20 blackjack when I get there but I dont have any comp set up yet. Do you guys recommend that I book these hotwire options or use some of the price match deals and try to find the lowest price on expedia/travelocit etc? We want to make sure we are getting the most bang for the buck. I do plan on doing the $20 trick when we get there to get the room update. Thanks for everyone's help!
