I am going to Vegas 9/3 and returning 9/6 for a bachelor party. I am looking to rent a suite for 10 people hoping to keep it reasonably priced. Anyone have any suggestions?

No farm animals, lawn darts, or tubs full of Jell-O. Don't go for strippers, hookers will cost less in the long run and you can negotiate a good flat rate. Cheers.

The only time I've been in Vegas I stayed at the Flamingo, which was reasonably priced and right on the strip, but I have no idea what their suite situation is like.

I enjoyed my stay at Encore, the suites are, well, sweet, but I don't know of any hotel with a 10 bed room suite

Whats the M/F ratio? With a little planning you could probably save a ton by taking half the difference of a 5-bed suite and a 10 bed suite and investing in alcohol.

Prices will range considerably on what type of hotel you want. Something like the Circus Circus will be cheap while the Encore/Wynn/Aria will be much more expensive.

My best friend has been desperate to go to Vegas ever since he saw the movie "The Hangover". If you haven't seen i suggest your group watch it together right before before


YouTube - The Hangover - The Doug Song
What, me worry?

I'm a big fan of the Venetian, they have high vaulted ceilings in their main casino so the smoke isn't so bad, and their non-smoking rooms really are non-smoking. Unfortunately, it's not the cheapest hotel on the strip.

Yeah, the Venetian ain't cheap, but it's quite nice. My dad and I stayed there on a business trip when it first opened, and we got stuck in the elevator for hours (room comp). If you're interested in upscale, look into the Bellagio too.

Yeah, the Bellagio is nice.

I stayed there two times, and two times in Caesar's Palace.

Caesar's ain't bad, but Bellagio FTW. It'll cost you coin though.

I would avoid Circus Circus. Too many children there.

For that many people, you may be better off getting a house. Linky.

I just got back from a five day vacation in Vegas last week. I'd recommend Cesar's Palace, The Bellagio, The Mirage, The Venetian, The Wynn, Encore, or Palazzo. All of these are VERY nice places, located in the center of the strip. I'd advise against Circus Circus. Its a bit of a creepy looking place and is located towards the end of the strip, which is kinda "gritty". I actually stayed at the Imperial Palace, which was a pretty nice place (no complaints, but its not on the level of any of the places I listed above), and it was located right in the center of the strip. It was also very affordable, so that was a plus, of course.

I'll second the Bellagio.

I've never been to the Paris but while using their bathroom I noticed they're running a French language course over the speakers. I figured I should stay there some day.

Whatever you do, don't go to the Monte Carlo or Tuscany.

Haha. So true.

Make sure to check out one (or three) of the shows around here. There are some good ones.

I just got back Sunday night. We left on Wednesday morning. Luckily, my Uncle lives there, so we didn't have to shell out for accommodations. The other six guys stayed at the Flamingo, nice place. Trippy hallways.

Oh, and the Nugget has a waterslide that goes through a shark tank.

Awesome. Exactly the kind of entertainment you'd expect in Vegas. I'll make sure to check it out next time I get there.

I've stayed at the Golden Nugget in 2007 when I met up with my host family again. It is definitely more for families and `old people.' The shark tank is really cool. I was hoping I could see the sharks being fed, but somehow I wasn't that lucky.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

The sushi joint in the Golden Nugget is pretty good FYI.

It's ridiculously expensive for what it is. Sushi Mon is your best bet, they offer an all-you-can-eat option for $25 a head (great deal) and the sushi is fresh, and tastes pretty good.

I live in Hawaii, home to some of the freshest and best tasting sushi available.
