    If you don't already have a players card, i would suggest going to CET, Milife, etc online and sign up for their e-mail specials. It's free and it tells the casinos you would be interested, especially in June which is only a couple of months away.

    Then, once you decide on which hotel you want to stay at (depending on what the offers are), you can book a room.

    Then, when you get to Vegas, visit the CET, Milife, G, etc, booths to get your card. They are also free and you will probably get a free T-Shirt etc. to welcome you aboard.

    The resort fee is pretty much everywhere now, so take that in consideration and add that to the equation (roughly $15-$25 per night on the strip).

    Harrah's is pretty friendly towards seniors. Tropicana also.

    You could also check out Casino Royale. Some motels on the Strip, like Travelodge, will have senior discounts.

    But the important thing to remember is signing up for receiving e-mails at as many properties you can, and once you are in Vegas, make sure to get players cards and using them when on their properties.

    I mainly use my CET (Caesars card), but i also have a card from Gold Coast for a discount on the buffets (even though i don't gamble with it). I also have a Milife card as well.

    Remember, Vegas wants your money, the first step is signing up, otherwise they won't know who you are, so make your presence known before you hit Vegas by signing up for e-mails, make your decision, and then have all your cards together once you visit the kiosks at the different properties.

    Then, on your next visit, depending on where you mainly spend your money, you might get comped nights/discounted nights, free play, some food credits, etc. to get you to come back.

    Vegas is all about give and take............you decide what's best for you.

    I don't know if any hotels have senior rates or if they do, if they are better than the general promotion rates. For a senior rate, I would suggest checking through AARP if you are a member. If you are AAA member, you could check what they have as well. Also, you don't have to join the players clubs to get emails. Most hotels have links just to sign up for emails. Most of the hotels on the strip do have resort fees now (can't recall if any still don't). However the more budget friendly places also have lower nightly fees for less robust ammenities.

    A third option for looking for better rates is a site like Smarter Vegas. They track promos that most people could use.

    Not that I know of, Vegas doesn't really work that way, not like your standard Hiltons and Holiday Inn's do. Discounts are for everybody.. and then the more you gamble they start offering free rooms and highly discounted rates, but that won't be till after you visit.

    You can find a ton of promotional offers at smartervegas.com these are basically all the promotions specific hotels are offering at this time, they just collect them all in one place (they come from e-mail, facebook, twitter..etc). It will have discounted rates, as well as some include dining credits or show tickets.. Just read the information on the website. These are the same deals being e-mailed out by the hotels. 100% check here first, the rates can often be a lot less than just booking without one.

    Yes, 99.9% of the hotels charge a resort fee, it ranges from $15-$28 per night. All the nicer hotels charge $28. For example if you see a rate of $100 a night, that does not include the resort fee or tax. That is separate no matter how you book and charged at check in. It basically includes internet, phone calls, and limited gym access. They do this to have lower base rates to advertise... they generally aren't optional.

    If you have no idea where to begin I'd start with a nice 4 star hotel, such as MGM Grand, Paris Las Vegas, Mirage all have good locations on the strip as well as lots of amenities, restaurants, and large casinos (probably range between $60-$150 per night, depending on dates). If you are looking for something more high end look at Venetian, Aria or Bellagio (probably range $99-$250 based on dates).

    If you have specific dates in mind we can look up some rates for you! I know it can be overwhelming.

    Just got my packet from joining AARP. MGM resorts is listed as one of their travel discounts. Would have to call to see what the discount is.
