I’ve always hated topic threads that start with “tell me about,” yet I couldn’t resist. I’m like Woody Woodpecker. So I’ll be in Vegas in less than two weeks. Things worked out to go for four nights the week before Thanksgiving, so I just booked a trip late last night. I was starting to doubt I’d make it this year. My first two nights will be at the Strat. I stayed there many moons ago. I packaged the room with airfare via Travelocity, as I shouldn’t need a room for Friday and Saturday night. (That’s still being finalized. I booked airfare on faith that it will work out to my advantage.) I went cheap for Wednesday and Thursday night, relatively speaking. I typically stay at Orleans, but they haven’t shown me any love since I stayed there last Halloween, and the Strat was cheaper, even with the higher resort fee. The tower access seemed like a nice benefit, too. My girlfriend and I went up it once a couple of years ago, and it's one of those things I enjoy doing every few years, so it's a resort fee "perk" that actually has value for me. I am curious if there’s anything in particular that I should request regarding our room, and what the experience has been of those who have stayed there. If your trip report included a stay at the Strat, if you’d be so kind to simply provide a link to it in a comment, I’ll certainly check it out. I’m going to be doing a lot of reading and catching up this w/e, when I finally get a chance. Now that Halloween is over, my seasonal security job at a local haunt is over, and I’ll actually have a Saturday night where I’m not on my feet. Thanks in advance for anything you have to share.
