Beside hotel rooms being extremely cheap, we found it very easy get reservations at any restaurant at any time. In fact, reservations the week before Christmas may not even be necessary. The tables in the casino aren't very busy so we've never had a problem getting in on a game with a group of friends. We've even found ample elbow room at that. Since there are so few people, the cocktail waitresses are able to bring drinks faster than any other time of the year, too.
The week before Christmas is a great time of the year to explore new things in Las Vegas. The lower hotel room prices can allow you the ability to stay in a more luxurious hotel then you normally would. The quiet time also can allow you to gain access to places you'd normally not be able to get into or to try things you've avoided because of crowds.
Even though this writer lives in Las Vegas now, he still takes this time of the year as an excuse to take a staycation in Las Vegas. It's almost time that our friends book their flights which also means that it's almost time to look for rooms. Happy Holidays!
