Anyone care to guess what this "mystery" hotel is?

    I was looking on slickdeals and this came up: its a hotel that is 4-5 stars for 67 a nite but they can't tell you what it is...

    Here are the details.. I was wondering if anyone with super hotel knowledge would know what this is as it has grabbed my attention.

    WHAT’S INCLUDED IN YOUR TRIPALERTZ DEAL

    Stay in Fabulous Las Vegas from $67 per night for 2 guests!
    ● 4-5-star mystery hotel just off The Strip
    ● Taxes ARE included in the rate paid to TripAlertz
    ● PLEASE NOTE: A Resort Fee of $20 per night per room is NOT included and will be added to your stay upon check-out

    ABOUT THE RESORT

    It’s Vegas, baby! There’s no place in the world like it. There are so many things to see and do, you’ll be anything but bored. We can’t tell you where you’ll be staying, but this resort has an amazing pool, spa, several bars and lounges and is just minutes from The Strip. What we can tell you is getting all of their amenities at this 4-5-star property for only $65 per night is an absolute steal. Unlike some mystery deals, you won’t regret booking this one. We promise.
    ACCOMMODATIONS

    All spacious guestrooms are pleasantly appointed with a good array of in-room amenities.

    Accommodations feature:

    ● One king bed or two double beds
    ● Bathroom with premium toiletries
    ● In-room Wireless Internet access (complimentary)
    ● 27” LCD TV
    ● In-room refreshment center
    ● Hair dryer
    ● Iron/ ironing board
    ● In-room safe

    If it is a Casino Hotel it may be easier to guess. Just off the strip sounds like maybe The Rio or The Palms. If it is any Vegas Hotel off the strip, I couldn't make a guess.

    The Rio wouldn't have the Resort fee though, would it?

    Nope. It wouldn't.

    4 Seasons, Palms & Signature are listed as $20 per night resort fees. 4 Seasons lists complimentary wifi & I don't think the others do.

    Trump has been out there before but it doesn't sound like Trump.

    Booking.com says that Palms has $20 resort fee and 4 Seasons has $25 resort fee. Seems to be Plams in my eyes (I just did some research :))

    4 Seasons would be more of a 4 to 5 star than The Palms. Is that hotel next to Mandalay Bay? Would that be considered just off the strip?

    4 Seasons is in Mandalay bay, top floors so that is on strip.

    Good work, I did not research and just throw my guess in the pot, but with that info I guess palms is it, I looked up the fee now for hardrock, and its $18, so i guess its not them.

    Palms

    Palms matches the the 27” LCD TV that is advertised in the ad. It also seems to meet the other requirements. They also advertise on a lot of discount websites.

    My guess would be that its The Palms...

    There are a couple of things the OP left out of the ad they posted above:
    - There are multiple bars and lounges at the property
    - The $20 resort fee also includes drink coupons
    - The ad posted above says "4-5 star" but the full ad says it is a 4 star property

    That there are multiple bars and the place is 4 star reduces the list a little... and the part about the drink coupons is relevant because that is one of the things listed in the resort fee for The Palms.


    The only thing that really doesn't add up is the nightly charge of $67. The Palms generally goes for less than that per night, so in that sense its not a deal if it is The Palms.

    That said, these places with the mystery deals will actually let you cancel the deal if you phone them within one hour of receiving your confirmation email that reveals the hotel's name. So if the price seems good enough to you then I'd book it and when the name comes to you in the email if its not one you would be happy with then just call and cancel it (note: you have to call)

    Ya, probably The Palms. They are pretty regular on groupon as well. Though I'm not sure how great $67 is if you are a fan of the strip though. Lots of choices on strip in that price range. Especially with the $20 resort fee.

    The televisions at Four Seasons are much larger than 27" LCD. They are either 42" (or possibly 46") LCDs.

    The Four Seasons in located on the top 4 floors of the Mandalay Bay hotel. We've stayed there several times and love it :)

    Four Seasons is definitely on the Strip, floors 35-39 in Mandalay's main tower.

    Rio is NOT an all-suite hotel. Can't believe that bit of Kool-Aid's still being consumed. lol

    Don't you think the description would mention a casino as an amenity if there was one?

    I REALLY doubt that.

    I say it's Trump. Doesn't mention a casino. I wouldn't consider Rio, Palms, Hard Rock to be 4-5 stars.
