Is it aggressive pricing, or an early sign of trouble?

Whatever the case, the newest casino/hotel property on the Vegas Strip, Resorts World Las Vegas, is offering up discounts as much as 50 percent for some of its hotel rooms. Considering the massive complex just opened in June, seeing prices slash that significantly this quickly is surprising.

Checking the Resorts World website, we saw some rooms at the Conrad Las Vegas, one of three hotels on the property, on sale for as low as $59.50 per night between Sun-Thur. Friday and Saturday night rooms were more expensive, but there were rooms available for the last two Fridays in August for $144 a night. These do not include resort fees, which run around $60. So if you’re able to arrive on a Thursday, or even better, book a mid-week visit to Vegas, you can score a great deal on a room at the newest property on the Strip.

To be eligible for these rates, you’ll need to join Genting Rewards which is Resorts World loyalty program. There is no cost for signing up.

These rates are great news for travelers, but it obviously isn’t something they’re popping bottles for in the management offices at Resorts World. But when you have 3,500 rooms to fill, sometimes price-cutting is the most expeditious way to do it.

Then again, when Resorts World opened, it looked like Vegas and the rest of the country was close to putting the pandemic in our rear view. However, as the rate of vaccinations slowed and the delta strain of the virus started spreading rapidly, the desert destination has had to put the brakes on its post-pandemic revival plans.

Vegas put its indoor mask mandate back in place after COVID-19 cases began surging again. And there is talk that some Vegas casinos are considering following the lead of Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel & Casino and mandating vaccines for its workforce. Being so dependent on tourism for its financial health means Las Vegas is once again in a precarious position as the U.S. struggles with this latest wave of the coronavirus.

If things don’t improve soon, there’s a good chance other casinos will join Resorts World in slashing hotel room prices as a last-ditch effort to lure visitors.
