Hey everyone it's been quite a while since i've made any post on here and from previous experience I got some good insight from this board. I have a trip coming up and needed some suggestions about where to stay how should I book it. So here is some background info on this trip. Originally I was going out there from feb6-10 but I was talking to my coworker and that got the wheels turning in his head. So now him and his wife are going out there for the superbowl and I told him if he went then I would come out there sooner. After a couple of weeks went by it really sank in how long I will be there, which is now feb1-10. Of course my natural thoughts were focused on how much more expesive this trip has become for me. I was doing some browsing mainly on smartervegas and found quite a few good deals. So to first answer everyone's question about hotel bugdet I was trying to stay at less than $150/nt on the weekends and <$75 for during the week. I'm fully aware of resort fees but I would prefer to stay at a hotel that has a cash deposit option with incidentals. I was doing some talking with my other coworker and I defintely need to make a quick decision on superbowl weekend before prices go up. My dilema is that i'm not sure if I should book a hotel for the entire stay or should I book just that weekend to secure a cheaper rate then book the remainder of the trip at a later date with anticipation of the rates falling right after the superbowl? I was thinking of booking feb1-4 then feb4-10 seperately. Thanx in advance for any respones to this post.
