VDARA HOTEL OPENS DESPITE POOR LAS VEGAS ECONOMY
Perhaps no other city in America has been hit harder by recession than Las Vegas. The Vegas economy has been in a self-admitted free fall for the past two years. Casinos are hemorrhaging money and even filing for bankruptcy.
With most Americans worried about finding a job or simply clinging to their old one, a Vegas vacation is the last thing on the mind of most people. However, amid all of the economic turmoil, the recent opening of the massive City Center project is adding an eventual 6,000 hotel rooms to an already diminished Las Vegas market.
The result has been unbelievable deals for people who can actually still afford a vacation. Here are some of the shockingly inexpensive nightly room prices for some major Vegas hotel/casinos:
HOOTERS CASINO: LOCATED JUST OFF THE STRIP-$20 A NIGHT
IMPERIAL PALACE: $22 (BEWARE OF THE BEDBUGS)
MONTE CARLO $39
CIRCUS CIRCUS: $22
THE PALMS: ONE OF THE TRENDIEST VEGAS SPOTS FOR $54 A NIGHT
THE RIO: $45 (FOR A SUITE)
MGM GRAND: $53
HARD ROCK: $48
NEW YORK-NEW YORK: $46
FLAMINGO (ICONIC BUGSY SIEGEL ORIGINAL): $30
Even the high end Las Vegas hotels have dropped their prices. You can stay at the newly opened luxury resort Aria for just $159 a night. Other room rates include: Mandalay Bay $109, Caesars Palace $89, Encore at Wynn Las Vegas $169, andVdara $129.
