    I would suggest you use a variety of methods to find a hotel in your budget. First, go to the sites like kayak or Hotels.com and do a search for your dates. That should give you a rough idea of the kind of rates at the different levels of hotels.

    From there you can search the Hotel Offers & Discounts here and the hotel websites and see if you can find a lower rate. Once you have a good rate, confirm it's refundable and book it. Then keep on looking.

    Some of the members here are wizards of finding the deal.

    You didn't mention what your budget is, but there are many mid-level properties where you can find a reasonable price.

    You can use a site like betterbidding.com to figure out how much a room at a property with a certain star level is going for during the time period in which you are visiting. This site will help you strategically make a bid if you were to use Priceline or can help give you an idea of which hotel you might get if you use Priceline or Hotwire.

    Try smartervegas.com. It has promo codes and it takes you directly to booking with the hotel with the promo codes.

    There are about 20 hotels that I might suggest, but not sure what works for you. I would say that for 10 days, I would do at least two to change things up.

    If you go to many of the hotels and check their MONTHLY rate calendar, you will get an idea of rates, and which nights are gonna be high.

    What is a reasonable price? That's a HUGE trip. If I were you I'd spend some time researching, also maybe switch hotels, you can probably stay somewhere nicer during the week and then something cheaper over the weekend.

    My go to budget recommendation is usually Luxor. Here's a promo code. 10 nights is 777.00 for a Tower Room!! That's sign haha ;) (1,071.84 with resort fees and tax, $903 for a Pyramid room), the tower rooms are nice and remodeled. I stayed in one this year and liked it a lot. I would be happy there for 10 days personally.

    If you are really looking for rock bottom prices Excalibur $701 with resort fees and tax..

    Everything else, except the Quad is going to be quite a bit more. Even Bally's and Monte Carlo are a lot higher. The weekend is killing it, that Luxor deal, almost half the price is 2 nights..

    I found these deals on smartervegas.com

    Another option would be Monte Carlo. Join their Facebook site and it has a post for Society 96 (or something like that) which has a link to a better discount than you can find on the hotel website. I would suggest you do this for any of your prospective hotels, it's an easy way to find better deals than they are traditionally advertising. TI does the same and is a more budget friendly property.

    If your from the UK I'd trying booking through virgin holidays. The prices will include the resort fee.

    I got a week in nyny for £820 each inc flights, Taxes, resort fees etc and if your 10 days only has 1 weekend it won't be much more than that.
