    The rates in October seems to be very high. I can get 4 nights comp just about everywhere all year long except October. I have never gone in October is this a special month for some reason?

    The Global Gaming Expo generally brings in a lot of people (at the beginning of October this year). About 30,000 attendees.
    There's auto industry week at the end of October, into November. About 160,000 attendees.
    Most likely a few headliners/sporting events/concerts scheduled for October that will bring a lot of people into the city too.

    Also, many people like to go to Vegas in October because the weather is a bit more temperate and not generally in
    the mid-hundred temps during the day.

    Edited to add: All those Vegas Knights hockey games in October.

    My theory is that it's my birthday month so they know I'm coming to town. ;)

    Its a month where it is cool enough to walk somewhere without dying and hot enough that the pools are open.

    Add in that its a month where the weather travellers are leaving may not be the best, sports, conventions, and halloween, and it always seems like a pretty pricey month.

    We've been to Vegas Oct 17 for about the last 25 years. It's our anniversary. We didn't get married in Vegas 35 years ago, but it has become a tradition. 13-18 in 2017. Perfect weather.
