I booked two weeks ago because I felt I had a gun to my head. A month ago I had a comp offer for the high end mLife resorts like Aria and Bellagio for a 3 night stay anytime and these dates were available. When I checked two weeks ago they were either booked solid or unavailable for the comp offer and prices were over $300. Luxor still had a comp offer for the dates so I booked it, but checking prices without the comp offer rooms are near $300 for a standard room in the pyramid. What's the deal? I see no big sporting events, nothing on the convention calendar I can see of......I don't get it. I can get a room still for the week of July 4th but the 24th til the 28th the prices are insane.
