Agent 21

With the economy still getting back on track, people have been saving their pretty pennies and watching what they spend. Even though traveling has been on the rise, tourists expect to stretch their budget looking for the best deals without having to sacrifice their favorite pastimes. Las Vegas recognizes and delivers by offering some sweet deals for the rest of the summer. Whether you are looking for a “stay-cation” or vacation, take advantage of the offers without having to break your pretty little piggy bank.

If you need a place a stay, MGM Grand is assisting tourists with some killer rates. Rooms are start off at $60 per night or upgrade to a suite at the MGM Signature equip with your own kitchenette starting at $99 per night. Monte Carlo also jumped on the discount train by offering deals on luxury. For starting at $170, guests can stay at the new HOTEL32, a boutique hotel on the top floor of the Monte Carlo. You will be treated like VIP with a private check-in along with butler and concierge service. If the north side of the Strip is more appealing Palms is offering packages starting at $89 per night Mon – Thurs that comes with a $100 credit for food and can be used at the Palms Pool. If you think about it, Palms is actually paying you to stay. You can upgrade to Palms Place for $139 and receive the same credit. Just a few blocks down the path, Venetian is offering packages until September 30, for $149 in one of its luxury suites. If you have never stayed there, its suites can fit four people easily. Along with that rate you get discounts at some of its dining locations, free admission and line bypass to LAVO Nightclub as well as a guest discount at its well-known spa.

Another option for hotel deals you may want to sign up for is livingsocial.com. The site offers Living Social Escapes where a few Las Vegas hotels have been giving away some amazing deals along with package options. There is usually a Las Vegas hotel featured once every three weeks.

Obviously when traveling, most guests do not stay in the hotel. Vegas offers multiple ways of entertaining and throughout the summer deals are popping up. If you haven’t had a chance to see a Cirque show yet, now is the time. Until the end of October, Cirque is offering two tickets for $100 to every show in city.

Las Vegas has some of the world’s best restaurants and guests can try them out without having to max out their credit card. Some of the fine dining restaurants offer “tasting menus” where you can enjoy the best for a small price. Joel Robuchon restaurant at MGM Grand offers a tasting menu daily from 5:30 p.m. until 6:15 p.m. with a choice of an appetizer, main course and dessert for $59. Top of the World at the Stratosphere is an infamous restaurant with a great view and good place to take a date. It offers a five course tasting menu for only $85, which is an amazing deal considering some of its entrees are priced at $50 alone. Make sure to make reservations and confirm it is available when you call.

The best way to find deals anywhere is to simply ask. Most concierges should be able to assist or ask employees. They are there to help and it is unlikely they won’t let you in on a few good deals.
