How do you choose a particular hotel? I am not seeing $50 as you are. Any further tips?

Use better bidding to match the hotel description/city area to find out which hotel you're going to book. I've used it before to book a hotel in Los Angeles through hotwire and i would say its quite accurate.

Look up resort fees for any place you plan to stay. They typically are not listed at hotel finder sites and those fees can be very high per night and they are not optional.

The myth on the Internet is that Canadians are nice people. Those people who say this just haven't been on RFD.

Resort fees can be waived if you do the sandwich trick

Same.

I have NOT had the sandwich trick work the last 3 times asking for ANY complimentary bonuses

Maybe going in December is different?

Yeah, resort fees can add another $45 USD. But if you get a hotel for $55, that's not bad.
Aria for $55 is sweet
If you like it more quiet, Vdara next door is AMAZING. It was originally a condo project, so all suites. Non-smoking, no casino. More resort-feel.

I stayed at the Luxor and Mirage last year during cheapish times (dead of summer, I like the heat) and when I asked if there was any way to not pay the resort fees (I'm thinking similar to Niagra fees that you can just NOT pay), I was told that it was always going to apply and there was no way to avoid. Not saying it's not feasible to get lucky some places/times but I wouldn't count on being able to have the fees waived - and they're substantial. It was $30 per night at both places I stayed, considering when I was there the room itself was only $50, that's a pretty huge fee to tack on.

If you gamble enough on a rewards card things like resort fees easily become waived. Same with meals and other perks! Just have to flash a little cash around the casino you’re staying at and it’s surprising how easy it is.

FWIW, 3 years ago Resort Fees were still "something new" in Vegas and could fairly easily be waived. I stayed at the Encore in April under a Westjet promotion that waived the resort fee if you explicitly did not use the associated services, the girl at the desk said something along the lines of "Great deal, you never see this sort of thing anymore".

So while it might (huge might) be possible to have the fee waived if you get an amazing front desk person, don't expect that the sandwich trick will make it happen.

If you have a higher status on your rewards card then this is possible. If you throw 50 bucks a night into a slot machine, don't expect anything special.
