If you plan on traveling to Las Vegas and want to stay at either Caesars Palace or Harrah’s, this could be a good deal.
2 nights at Harrah’s Las Vegas for $299
The 2 night package at Harrah’s includes the following: a mini suite, breakfast, internet and round trip airport transfers for $299 ($269 with Amex discount).
The price on Harrah’s website came to $251 for for a two nights stay in June in a regular room. Although the $299 package costs slightly more, this deal offers much more value for just a small price increase.
3 nights at Caesars Palace Las Vegas for $1,540
The 3 night package at Caesars package includes the following: plush suite for two, two tickets to the show of your choice, $200 dining credit, airport transfers, fitness center access and internet for one device for $1540 ($1386 with Amex discount). The price on the Caesars website for 3 nights in June in the Hakone suite was over $200o, and didn’t include the extras noted above. The cheapest rooms (not suites) can go for as high as $650 per night during busy weekends, and don’t include the extras, so this deal offers great value if you plan on seeing a show and dining out.
2 nights at Caesars Palace Las Vegas for $465
The 2 night package at Caesars includes the following: 2 nights accommodations, 2 all-day buffet passes, 2 fitness center passes, complimentary internet access, and roundtrip airport transportation for $465 ($418 with Amex discount). Again, rooms can go for much more than this on the high end, and don’t include the extras. However, rooms at Caesars Palace can be had through Priceline for much less on most dates, so this package could be a good deal if you plan to visit during a holiday weekend or other period of high demand.
2 nights at Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace for $590
The 2 night package at Nobu includes the following: 2 nights accommodations at Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace, in-room tea service, dinner for two at Nobu Restaurant and Lounge, daily fitness center access, and internet for one device for $590 ($531 with Amex discount). When priced for certain June dates on the Nobu website, the cost is over $1,000, making this package yet another appealing deal when used at the right time. However, there are only 5 of these available, so this deal may be hard to get.
2 nights at Paris Las Vegas for $350
The 2 night package at Paris includes the following: 2 nights accommodations in a Red Room Premier, dinner for two including beverages at your choice of restaurant (valued up to $150), $150 credit to use for your choice of treatments at Mandara spa, champagne in-room and ground Airport Transportation in Las Vegas for $350. Without even pricing out rooms I can tell you that this is an excellent deal, because the spa credit and restaurant credit alone total $300; therefore, you’re staying for just $25 per night in a premier room, which is exceptional value.
Again, you can get rooms for extremely cheap in Las Vegas, especially during the week and in hotels like Excalibur or Treasure Island or those slightly off the strip. These deals are worthwhile if you know you specifically want to stay at one of the above hotels, especially during a busy weekend. The Paris deal offers the most for your money, but I’m a sucker for suites and would be tempted to try my luck at scoring a few nights in the Hakone rooms at Caesars Palace.
