Just a heads up that the NAB convention is April 4-10 next year and that can really jack up Strip hotel rates and availability. 80,000+ attendees. At least it was before the economy turned south. It doesn't seem to affect downtown rates too much except the GN might be the only downtown hotel to run a shuttle bus to the convention center for this convention. I haven't attended since 2007, so I'm not sure about GN. Gawg, I don't miss work!!!
