Want To Spend Memorial Day Weekend In Vegas? Here's A Look At Rates

April 16, 2014 at 4:49 PM | by | ()

We're a little over a month away from Memorial Day weekend, May 23-26, the official kickoff of the summer season. A check in of rates reveals some pretty pricey rooms with a predictable drop off Monday night, the 26th, with rates as low as $21 downtown.

As indicated below, some hotels have a no arrival policy on Saturday, May 24. If you're thinking about a holiday trip to Vegas, you should probably make a reservation soon to take advantage of the few deals that remain. Keep in mind that rates are for standard rooms, do not include tax or resort fees and, as always, are subject to change based on demand. Inquire with the resort you're interested to see if any strings are attached. Rates listed are for the nights of Friday May 23 through Monday, May 26.

Boyd Properties

I'm a huge Boyd Property proponent so here are some other rates to look at.

Orleans $99, $175, $120, $40
Gold Coast $84, $139, $99, $32

They are within a mile of the strip and they are locals places.  I will actually be at Gold Coast that weekend for a video poker tourney, and I booked early so I got the rates when they were cheaper, but comparatively speaking, these are steal compared to the strip properties...guess it just depends on what you are looking to do.

Feel bad

for those suckers who pay that much for Caesars especally when they are paying that for a Roman Tower Room.


$719 for a Roman Tower room at Caesars on a busy holiday night vs $435 at Mandarin Oriental.

Even worse is that $719 will almost get you a Skyloft on a weekday.  

I really hope no one is that dumb.  

Mlife MGM West Wing...

157,310,157,55 +tax +resort fee.

I opted for (Grand Queen) 7-14th for $517 (+tax+fee).

I've done Memorial Day quite a few times, I don't mind the crowds (they're fun!), but the heat ends up cutting down on my enjoyment of walking the strip.

PS Tip: I've found that even moderate gambling can get a couple of days worth of resort fees knocked off (at check out).
