You just have to know how to bid correctly.
I'm calling you the next time I go to Vegas. Bellagio $45/night? Wow!

I think right now, midweek, both of those are around $60/night on the site, much less on Priceline. Time of year matters in Vegas! Most people hate the heat because they live in a place where it gets hot in the summer. I'm the opposite. It's only in the 60s in San Diego and I welcome heat/humidity (for a day or so!) with open arms. I'm sick of hearing about the heat everywhere else. We never get that hot so off to Vegas it is!

Wow ok, that would be clutch then. Ive never done it and the only time i looked at it was a couple years back the area was "strip and near strip" so i didnt mess with that.

I use Priceline all the time. I reference BetterBidding and BiddingForTravel and Kayak for prices and I normally get 40 to 60 percent off. I've paid $39 for a 3 star hotel charging $99, and I've also paid up to $74 for a 3 star hotel charging $129 (busier weekend). I highly recommend it but it's important to do research so that you don't overbid.

If you have an additional driver, Priceline isn't the best way to go for a car rental if you "win" your bid with a rental company that charges for additional drivers.

Hi Mak,
Thanks for the info. I'll check the hotel's websites. Went to Priceline and they have listed a variety of areas on the strip....North, South, East, West, etc. Can anyone be more specific about which areas I should select?
thanks a million for all the great suggestions.

Do not bid on the ones that say Near Strip North, etc. That will get you a hotel off the strip.

Las Vegas Strip North and South are all the strip hotels, depending on where you want to be. If you click on detail map, you can see which cross street to which cross street each area covers. If you have a particular hotel you're eyeing, bid on that. Just don't do near, east or west of the Strip. You'll end up on one of the side roads.
