Holy Smokes, the Hard Rock is really looking' to take advantage of the AVN Conference (Jan. 15-18th). I was lucky enough to secure some appointments to handle on Wed and Thurs. of that week, but the room rates are outta-sight $300-$500+ and they go up from there on Friday and Saturday of course. I can get a comp for Wed., but my host is checkin' to see what they can do for me on Thursday. I'm a very frequent guest, but I don't blame 'em, gotta make the $$$ when you can! I won't be attending the conference, but I learned last year the general "views" around the property are incredibly enhanced, shall I say, during the time the conference is going on. Looks like they're expecting to make some money the previous week during CES as well. The rates were waaaay up there then too. I moved my business from that week, cause it's just a zoo in Vegas during CES, but good for them and good for the folks who attend.
