    Hey I git some buddies going to Vegas from Feb 21-26. I'm looking at joining them.

    They are staying at the Hard Rock Hotel (they are already booked through a package - can't be cancelled).

    Are they some places to look at to get a good rate at the Hard Rock?

    I could alternatively stay at a CET hotel cheaper (total rewards) but then I am making the trek to the hard Rock in the morning to meat the guys and possibly back to the strip at night.

    I know that we could just say, 'We'll meet in the morning at _____' but I don't want to be the lone guy out wondering 'Where are these guys?'

    The 3 of us are 30-34.

    And I don't have another guy that I could bring along.


    Thanks

    I always deal directly with the property and have never used Hotwire, Expedia, etc. though many do.

    I suggest going to the website:

    http://www.hardrockhotel.com

    Sign-up for their text alerts and Twitter feeds... though I don't book from those, I'm always getting specials on my phone or e-mail.

    I checked the rate calendar and though you're staying over a weekend, which is always a little more expensive, those dates don't appear to conflict with anything (conference, concert, etc.) huge which would drive rates up.

    One thing to help you is the Casino Tower is the oldest. Opened in '95 I think and most convenient to the main casino area. It had french-doors that open (no balcony), which are really nice for letting fresh air in and takin' in the view... airport or pool. The rooms have all been refurbished, but have pretty small bathrooms (if that matters). Those rooms are usually the cheapest on property.

    The Paradise Tower, opened like 4 years ago and has nicer rooms IMHO and larger bathrooms, but is quite a walk from the action. The prices are generally comparable to the Casino Tower, for a nicer room, but bring your hiking boots.

    The HRH Tower (also opened in '10) is all-suites, nice sized sitting area, large sleeping area and very large bathroom with separate stand alone shower. It's a little pricier, not a whole lot though, and a much better room product. That Tower has it's own garage, valet and check-in.

    Good luck! :wave:

    Hotwire secret hot rates is selling Hard Rock for $64/nt for those dates.

    You know it's Hard Rock because it's "near the strip-east area"(select this area on the map), has a casino, it's 4 stars (select 4 star rating) and has a $22 resort fee (make sure you see this under the rate). Alternatively, you can book 1 or 2 nights and then add nights after you make the non-refundable purchase. With the add-to-stay feature, the additional nights are usually lower (although they count as a separate booking and would require checking back in). But this feature is righteous because then you can first ensure that the booking is in fact Hard Rock before you spend more money.

    The bad part is that you can not cancel it or get a refund. You also are not sure it is Hard Rock until the purchase is made but it's very likely with the amenities and features quoted. Hard Rock is a rare hotel with $22 resort fee (as opposed to $20 or $25). Good luck!

    I'm on that site but actually don't see that.

    The only 4 star is for $72 per night (regularly $135) with 'This hotel charges a resort fee of about CAD24.42 per room per nigh'

    I would first call VIP services and tell them your friends are staying and you want to see if there is a Casino rate or a special promotion you can get in on and join them.

    If that didnt work, I would pay the $64 a nt SCO mentioned on Hotwire. I would not want to be the one that had to keep walking to and from the property to save a few bucks. Sometimes on these group trips you just gotta take one on the chin to join the fun.

    If you stay on the strip @ a cheap CET property, keep in mind all of the travel would be 1-1.5 miles at the shortest. Drunk walking by yourself might not be the most fun after a day of partying. If you're not walking, a cab would add costs too to take into consideration.

    That's Hard Rock, their resort fee comes to exactly $24.42. The Alexis Park and Rumor Hotel are both right across the street on Harmon. I have a work co-hort who stays at the Alexis Park and likes it. I don't know much about The Rumor. The only other close property is the Silver Sevens (old Terrible's) up at the corner of Flamingo and Paradise. A short walk, but quite a downgrade in property IMHO.
