Reserve Yourself a Las Vegas Trip of a Lifetime!
Not getting your ideal place to stay or eat can be very frustrating when on holiday. Here are some tips from usatoday.com that will help insure that you have the best trip you possibly can.
If you hope to eat at a specific restaurant on a weekend or between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., reservations are recommended. If you are eating dinner before 5 p.m. or dining at unusual hours, you may be able to get away with showing up for a walk-in dinner if your party is small. You can set up a reservation with the restaurant during operating hours by phone or at the front desk of the restaurant. Some restaurants have their own websites on which you can make a reservation 24 hours a day.
Using a Reservation Site
Many restaurants offer online reservations through a site hosting reservations for multiple restaurants. One of the largest of the reservation sites is OpenTable.com, which allows a web user to browse restaurants by location, cuisine or name, and make a reservation for the desired time. LasVegasRestaurants.com offers a similar online reservation service.
Hotel reservations are usually cheapest when made online, unless you care to haggle with hotel staff. Many sites such as Travelocity, Priceline and Orbitz offer discounted fares on hotel rooms. Hotels.com also offers occasional deals on hotel rooms on the Strip, usually in the middle of the week during the hot summer months. Check multiple sites for competing deals, but keep in mind that some hotel price comparison sites figure taxes and fees into the price before checkout and some do not add it in until later in the game. Always review your total before submitting your hotel reservation for final payment.
Unless you have your heart set on one particular show and are buying tickets at the very last minute, there is no reason to pay full retail price for a Las Vegas show. Las Vegas show reservations can be made at several websites, and if you are already in Las Vegas, you can visit one of the many kiosks around the city that sell discounted show tickets. There is a discount show ticket booth in a prominent place in most major hotels as well as the airport, the Las Vegas Visitor Welcome Center, and almost every mall.
