What can you expect from
hotels' rooms in Las Vegas?

First impressions

Hotels' rooms in Las Vegas are something else! The first hotel we stayed at in Sin City was the Luxor Hotel in Vegas. We just had a standard room in one of the towers but were absolutely bowled over by the amount of space we had and the facilities and this was in 2003 before the hotel was refurbished.

Today, if you booked a room in one of the towers you’d have 449 square feet of space (fairly standard in Vegas) and in that space either a King-size bed or two Queen-size beds, a table and chairs not to mention a large bathroom containing a bath and a shower and complimentary toiletries from the hotel spa.

One of the things that has stayed with us was the sheer size of the bath and the fact that it had arm rests!

Free room upgrade

When we stayed at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Vegas we were offered a free room upgrade to a Resort room on arrival. We were checking in late and it was February, so not peak season, which probably had something to do with it.

So what did that mean? More space for one thing. Instead of 450 square feet we had 560 square feet of space and in that space a 42” plasma screen TV, movie memorabilia, a couple of comfy chairs, a table and chair and a large bathroom with two sinks.

Although we didn’t ask for the room upgrade it is worth asking if there are any complimentary room upgrades available when you check in whilst handing the clerk a folded $20 dollar note between your credit card and passport. Some of our friends have reported success with this method and have been able to upgrade their Las Vegas casino hotel rooms but others have been told by the clerks that they’re not allowed to accept tips. It's worth a try though.

Other room upgrades of the non-free variety

You’ll no doubt be asked if you want to upgrade your room when you get to the check in desk. If you’re visiting in an off-peak period the hotel might be offering a special deal on suites. So be ready for this before you get there and know how much you’d be prepared to spend on upgrading your room.

This happened to us on a trip to Caesars hotel in Las Vegas just after New Year. To start with, the prices of all the hotel rooms were much cheaper than they’d been just a couple of days beforehand and they were offering great deals on suites.

We ended up with a junior suite in the Augustus Tower for an additional $50 a night and it was well worth it to us. We had so much more space and a Jacuzzi.

Whatever your budget, whether you plan to stay in a cheap hotel room in Vegas or are going for one of the 5 star hotels, you get value for your money at all hotels' rooms in Las Vegas. This something fairly unique to the city and yet another reason you ought to take a trip to Nevada's largest city.
