    CET Hotel prices are 25% off for the next few weeks for travel through the end of next May. We planned to go to Vegas mid April. A month ago they had their semi-annual sale with 25% off meaning they'd have another one in January. Do you think we'd be better off booking now or would the rates likely be lower in January?

    If you are looking at booking without using your Total Reward card, I would book a rate that you can cancel with no penalty now, then keep checking rates to see if they drop. 9 Months is a long time and I'm sure a lower rate will show up. And, if it doesn't get any lower, you've locked in the current rate.

    I've been checking rates for a trip since before they started the semi-annual and summer sales. The rates BEFORE the sales was actually cheaper for my dates :(

    I wasn't checking rates before the sale but they do look high to me now even with the sale. The initial room rate sounds OK, but by the time you add taxes and resort fee it goes up considerably.

    Book now, keep checking rates and cancel/re-book if it goes lower. I've re-booked my trip 7 times in the last ~3-4 months and gotten the rate down more than $50 a night in the process. They just charge you the one night's deposit initially which gets refunded pretty quickly one you cancel/re-book. No charge/penalty to cancel/re-book as long as it's not couple days before trip.

    I agree, if you're comfortable with the rate, book it. If the price drops simply cancel and rebook.

    Here's what I'm looking at and I don't know if it's a good rate or not.

    Harrah's has new remodeled Valley Tower rooms for April 17-19 (M - W) for $81.00 a night. By the time you had all the fees it comes to $369.00 for those three nights, and that's the lowest priced week I see for the month of April.

    Unless you are booking some non refundable package from a third party it's never too early to book. As soon as you know your dates start shopping for rates and book. You can always cancel and rebook should the price go lower or you decide to change hotels.
