Headed out to Vegas March 17th thru 22nd.  Anyone know of any cheap deals close to the Paris or hookups?  I'm a teacher and need just a place to lay my head. I did Excalibur last year, but walking to and from the Paris drunk was too much for me

Try Rio, they have a shuttle that runs to all the harrah's properties and have considerably lower rates than the strip.

I was looking to head out in Feb or March: Expedia had some GREAT deals. From Boston, with hotel and flight, I found 550-600 dollar deals everywhere at decent hotels.That was for Sun-Friday ( depart on Fri). Although, the weekend prices will add a couple hundred to your price.

Check out the Imperial Palace which is close by.  My friend, who hates to spend money out of his bank roll he's taking, booked a room for us there at $45 a night.  Never stayed there though, so can't give a review.

Imperial is a great place for tables - the rooms are medicore, nothing special - but definitely your older joint in town.

...if you're trying to impress a woman, the Imperial isn't it...but if you're looking for cheap, central on the strip, bed sheets and a working shower, it'll do (stayed twice)...don't be wasting bankroll on a room you'll rarely see!...sportsbook is straight out of the 70's though, if you can call it a sportsbook...

If you're just looking at a place to lay your head, try Casino Royale. Under $100 on the night, and on the Strip, close to Harrah's and Flamingo, across street from Caesars Palace.

Rooms are okay, better than Imperial Palace.

Ok it's one Imperial Palace with direct flight two and from charlotte for $450 a person.  Can't complain. We all hang out at the Paris in the theatre to watch the games.  So the important thing was to be close to there, which we are.

I slept 7 hours in 4 nights last time so it won't matter where I lay my head. 

Hangover 2 starts Saint Patty's Day at 8PM when I land
