We're arriving on Saturday night when all the strip rooms are double the usual price. We're currently booked at the Silverton which looks nice enough, but I just found that Stratosphere rooms are about the same price and much more convenient, as we want to spend Saturday evening Downtown and avoid the Saturday night strip madness. For our date (May 11) we could get a Stratosphere Select room for $81.89 or a Strip View guestroom for $85.79--pretty much the same. The more important thing to us is a view of the Strip, but only if the room is decent, not crappy. I understand the $20 trick won't work at the Strat but we'll ask nicely for an upgrade when we get there. Any advice?
