This will be my second trip to Vegas, my husband's first. We're set to land on Sunday the 21st at 10:30 AM and on the reservation I had originally put a noon arrival time, figuring we could try to check in early and just drop our bags with the valet until the room was ready. Booked a Palace Deluxe King back in January when they were running sales on the rooms. For several days I kept plugging our dates into the system along with my TR# and got varying prices, usually just under $900 for the week (before tax and fees). A few times it went to under $700 and that is what I booked at. I couldn't believe the amazing deal I got on the room and have continued to check room prices over the months because I'm an obsessive planner like that. Prices are much higher now. Anyway, I'm so excited for this trip, it's our 25th anniversary and I want it to be awesome and now the doubt starts creeping in. I see trip reports of Caesars being overbooked and people being walked to Paris. My first trip was with my sister and Mom three years ago and we had booked an Augustus room but they moved us to Palace. Palace was beautiful, but we paid more for Augustus and had researched a lot before picking it. We were shocked to learn they could do that. That was on a Sunday in late February and it seemed kind of a quiet time. Everyone always said to book the room level you want so you don't get disappointed when you don't get upgraded but I had never heard to be prepared to be downgraded. (I don't consider Palace a downgrade from Augustus exactly, just an inconvenience on that trip because of location) Being moved from Augustus to Palace wasn't bad but if they try and move us to Roman or Forum on this trip, I will be very upset. So, should I be worried we wont get the room we actually booked this time? Especially considering we paid less than even the Roman tower is going for now? I don't know if that would factor into it considering we paid a lot more last time and still got moved, but there seems to be no rhyme or reason to these things. Anyone with any inside information or insight as to how they make the decision who gets moved to other hotels and who gets moved to other towers when needed? Is this week in September going to be busy? I used to have a link to check conventions but lost it along the way. Does arriving early hurt or help us? Anything else we should know about checking in early or Vegas in September? Thanks in advance!
