Where better to kick off the new year than in Vegas, right? Especially when that celebrations could be (partially) free.
Main Street Station, one of downtown's two classiest casinos (along with the Golden Nugget) is offering free Tuesday night stays for those who book three-nights altogether for stays anytime between Feb 8 and Mar 29, 2011. Since room rates can drop as low as $36 at that time of year, that's three nights for as little $24 a night--a terrific rate for the comfortable, chic, recently renovated rooms here.The property also boasts one of the prettiest casinos in town and the very best budget buffet.
Fremont Hotel and Casino (not as pretty in the public areas, but with surprisingly lovely rooms); and the California Hotel Casino (the third most attractive, but here the freebies are for either Sundays or Tuesdays). And at the off-Strip Sam's Town where the lack of freebies is made up for the fact that room rates drop to just $19 a night during that period. (And I'm a fan of Sam's Town; the rooms are among the biggest in town and quite plush, there are all sorts of fun activities on site, and the animatronic show in the lobby is a hoot).
Finally, for those planning to be in Vegas tonight, the city's struggling casinos are breaking with tradition and offering New Year's Eve deals, mostly for play at a number of casinos. For a run-down on the offers, click here.
Happy New Year to you all!
