I just booked my airfare for July 10-14 and have not yet booked my hotel. I have been reading on here everyday for advice, thanks everyone. I ran into one of my business clients and knowing he is a gambler let him know about my recently booked trip. He said he has an offer from the Venetian for an extremely low rate(not free) and said he would call to see if he could book it and then transfer to me. Sounds a little unlikely but has anyone here done this or something similiar?
