possible room hookup

I got an email from someone representing the Hard Rock Hotel/Casino asking if I wouldn't mind putting info about that hotel on Because I'm me, I asked if we could get a hookup on rooms. I'll keep you posted.

I would normally be totally against staying as far off the strip as the Hard Rock is, but if we can finagle free/cheap ass rooms, my opinion might change.

STBE messageboard up and running for you to post comments or suggestions about where we should stay this year. Check it out here.

Where are we staying this year?

I want to stay Downtown at the only classy hotel there is: The Golden Nugget.

STBE hotel shopping

Feel free to start hunting for bargain basement hotel rates. Sign up for the Priceline rewards program (apparently, I did at some point) and maybe you'll get a $30 credit to be used on a 3 night stay. You get a $10 credit added to whatever you bid on a hotel room. It's good through May 23, so I was thinking I might use it to upgrade us to the Golden Nugget. It's easy to find on Priceline (which never lets you see which hotel you're bidding on until after you've successfully booked) because it's the only 4 star hotel downtown. I got shut down at a $34 bid (technically $44 with the $10 per night credit), so I'm gonna try again when the regular rates go down a bit.
