There’s plenty to gamble on in Las Vegas, but when it comes to selecting my hotel, I won’t risk the odds.
For while there is a Vegas hotel for every traveler — cheap campy classics, big brand offerings, and decadent sprawling resorts — I always view a visit to Sin City as a reason to indulge. Beyond just the buffet, that is.
Las Vegas is one of the few cities in the United States where staying at a five-star hotel is generally affordable. Ultra-luxury properties can come in under $200 per night, sometimes as low as $75 to $100, depending on when you visit. Such an affordable stay certainly makes for a compelling booking argument.
Also consider that much of the draw of the Las Vegas Strip doesn’t even include the casino, with top-tier dining, star entertainment, and gorgeous hotels known for stunning pools and spas.
I once stayed at the Signature at MGM Grand in winter midweek and booked a Deluxe Suite for $80 per night. That’s less than a meal for two at a fancy restaurant. My room was a spacious 500 square feet, with a spa bath, terrace, and sleeper sofa (pro tip: I booked through the Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection, one of my favorite perks of the Chase Sapphire Reserve card and enjoyed a resort credit, free breakfast, early check-in/late check-out, and a category upgrade all included in my rate).
Of course, weekends and high seasons will bring increased prices, but with a little sleuthing you might just snag a great deal. Though if you really want to up those chances, read our list of the best cheap hotels in Las Vegas. These are three and four-star hotels with the same level of panache, but prices typically under $10o per night.
