Better to book hotel and flight together or separately?

Looking for June
Pretty much all hotels in Vegas you can cancel with no penalties if you give them 48-72 hours notice before check in. So if you find a deal on a hotel, you can book it but then if you find a better deal, you can cancel the first hotel.

Package deals can be cheaper but you can lose a lot of flexibility on flights and hotel rooms. For example, say you want to take the red eye home and get a corner suite, you not likely to find a package for that. Booking separately give you more options.

Its also a good idea to setup a google flights alert which will email you when flight prices go up or down.

That actually sounds kinda high. Last time I set something up at Signature, we combined a 1 bed + 2 queen bet room and made a giant suite out of it. It was way cheaper than booking a 2 bedroom. Can do similar thing at Delano as well.

Total was 2200 usd for 5 nights.

Fx, different date arrivals and covering the bachelor portion changed the price.

2 room super suite would have been awesome.

Anyone have some tips for booking 6 friends into adjoining rooms for the weekend of May 30 - June 2? We want to be on the strip. I am going to book something now and watch for deals, but right now it is looking like an expensive time!

The Signature has a nice setup for this - they have 2 bedroom suites which are joined by a common entry way. We booked ours through VRBO for a very reasonable price. Perhaps they have a configuration for 6 people (we just used this for 4).

Hi all it's been almost 10 years but I'm thinking of doing LA-LAS trip while we're there for the week. Since its 4 hours each way, we think we'll try to leave early before rush hour and do couple of pit stops on way (or should we do it coming back to LA?).....

We're thinking of staying over for the night off strip near the LAS convention centre near monorail - couple of Marriott CAT4 properties. In terms of going to strip, do you recommend driving and parking at one of those paid parking casinos or taking monrail (its $5/pp oneway and we're 3 people).

You have a number of options that may top the monorail.

First, there is still some free self parking on the strip. The self parking at Planet Hollywood is free, because it is also the parking for their mall (the Miracle Mile). Now that makes it a slightly long walk to the strip, but you'd have that with paid garages anyway.

If the appeal of the places you are looking at is Marriott Categories for a redemption, it makes sense. But many truly off strip places (like South Point, Orleans, M Resort I think) also operate free shuttles to and from the strip.

The monorail is fine for what it is, but is not amazingly cost efficient considering its limitations. It goes down the east side of the strip behind the resorts, so just like self parking, you could have a long walk from your stop still.

They also have buses (the Deuce and SDX) that you can get single ride and daily passes for. The advantage there is those buses will also go to outlet malls, the Fremont st experience downtown, and drop off in front of the hotels instead of way in behind where the monorail stops are.

Since there are 3 of you, I would go Lyft or Uber over the bus. Most stuff isnt that far apart. Like Vegas Convention Center to Fremont Experience would be $10-$12 (https://www.lyft.com/fare-estimate), split three ways that's like $4 each.

Also consider how easy it is to get drunk in Vegas. I think the majority of the time I am in Vegas, I am in no condition to drive. We have had our DD get wasted in which we had to Uber back to our hotel and come back for the car later. So yeah, if your group likes to drink take the Monorail or Uber over driving.

Uber/Lyft all the way in Vegas.

Monorail is inconvenient and limited, and as @nevyn1234 points out, expensive. Taxis are still a tipping-racket, with the guy blowing a whistle expecting a couple bucks just for waving and opening your door. With Uber, every hotel now has a Rideshare pickup area, and last month I never had to wait more than 3 or 4 minutes from click to carseat.

Vegas is great for walking -- a LOT of walking -- but if you need to cover greater distances, Uber is the way to go.

If you are looking at cat4 off strip and trying to figure out how to get to the strip, check out the cosmopolitan. It is a cat5 but I believe parking is “included”. It might be worth the extra points to save the hassle.

It snowed in Vegas when we were there several Decembers ago. It seemed unexpected because it was creating havoc on the highways.
