Hey all, It looks like about all the downtown properties are pricing about the same for June 9-13. I have a bunch of friends coming in who are staying on the Strip, but as of right now I don't have a big enough discount at any CET hotels to swing staying close to them. (They are booking a package at the Linq, I'm coming from a different city and so am looking at flying with Alliegnat and staying either at Flamingo - if I get a discount - or downtown). I usually don't get offers yet for that far away. As I look at the downtown hotels Boyd properties are the cheapest...so long as they don't charge a resort fee - do they? Then Golden Gate, Elcortez seem to be the next cheapest (on their own website and even a few bucks cheaper on booking.com) followed by Plaza: having rates of $29, $89, $89, $29 for the nights in question by followed by Boyd properties. The difference in price between Boyd, El Cortez and Golden Gate, and 4 queens is $3. Between those 2 and the Plaza the difference is $30 (lees if booked through Booking.com). So what do I want in a room: 1) Something cheap 2) A place that may give me a room promo in the future (or even comp some of that stay). I'll play $5 BJ, 3 Card Poker, and slots ranging from $0.50 - $1.00 a spin. Most of my action will be on the Strip as that's where my fronds will be. I usually like to stay one night Downtown so future room offer could also have value. 3) A reasonable room - considering there is a lot of choice for the same price. I don't believe I am a member at any of these places "Slots Club" and if I am, I don't know where my card is and have given only limited play there. Thanks for any advice.
