A buddy of mine is getting married in August and he wants to do his bachelor party in Vegas. Since I'm the closest to Vegas, somehow I got nominated to find the suite(s). I've done some internet searches and haven't had a whole lot of luck, so I'm looking for advice.

As of now, we have 4 people going, but it looks like we'll have between 6-8 people in total. I'm looking for a single suite, or 2 suites, that can accommodate that many people, that will be in the $1200-$1400 total range for 3 nights. Ideally, we want to spend ~ $200 a person. The date has been set for July 22nd - 25th and I'd like to be as close to the heart of the strip as possible.

I understand that this far in advance, I probably can't find any deals. Most sites that I saw offered deals right now through March and April. I'm more looking for suggestions and places to look at to get something that will match my above criteria.

Date: July 22-25 (3 nights)
People: 6-8
Cost: $1200-1400 total (~ $200 per person)
Location: Strip

Is this even possible?

Probably the best deal on a suite that I've seen so far is Venetian Bella suite. Booking with a SW Vacation, I could get a Bella suite for ~ $800. However, the problem with that is I can only get one at that price, and to even get 2, sort of takes me out of the price range I'm looking at. Probably best to look for a suite that has 2 bedrooms or a suite where you can book an adjoining room.

Thank you for any help that you might be able to offer!

You are correct in that most of the deals for your date have not been published yet. You will have no problems getting a room at your budget. I am 99.99% sure on that. Just wait and see what promos come out. Since it is a big day for you, you can even reserve the room now and pay one night deposit. Wait until you are within a month or two of travel date, cancel your prior reservation and book the "real" room with a promotion code (if one comes out). If not, you already have a room reserved. Now, with that said, promotions for bedroom suites like the one you are looking for come very rarely. I know in the past mirage, mgm, and mandalay bay have offered bedroom suite promotions. Other than that, you can try booking two rooms, tip the front desk and ask for an upgrade and conjoining rooms. Since you are on a bachelor party, I'm sure you will get upgraded for sure. Again, that is a risk you will have to take.

In the mean time, I found you:
2 bedroom penthouse suite 1600sq ft for $1420 ($20 over your maximum budget).
2 bedroom tower suite 1600sq ft for $1180 (comes out to $1372 with tax and resort fees)
Both above are at the mirage (dead center of strip) with 48hr cancellation before travel date and full refund.

Mandalay bay has a similar offer for 1500sq ft 2bedroom for roughly $1700 final price. Just look around, I spent about 10 minutes or so. I'm sure with more time you can find lots more. Good luck and enjoy.

I appreciate the reply. I did look at the Mirage, but the problem with those 2 bedroom suites is they have 1 King bed per room. I don't think a bunch of guys will be too happy sleeping 3 to a King. So we're looking at sleeping 4 easily in the two beds and we'd be stuck trying to sleep 2, if not more on the remaining sofa. This seems to be a common problem with most suites that I've seen.

I really hope this current SW deal runs through my trip because the Bella suites work out great. Venetian also has their Luxury suite, which is pretty much the same as Bella but has a single King and a pullout sofa. They are also running about $150 less than the Bella's with the current SW deal. A Bella and a Luxury suite will fit our number of people and keep the cost to each around $200.

i had a similar situation last summer...we stayed at the Marriott grand chateau.

this is what i found for your stay.

2 Bedroom Villa, Bedroom 1: 1 King, Bedroom 2: 1 King, Sofabeds: 2
* Total for stay (per room) 641.76

this is a really nice hotel, sure it sint right on the strip but you can easily fit everyone in that villa or even book 2 villas and still be within budget. at the offers page they offer 20% off for early booking.

Marriott Grand Chateau

Another place you can check off strip would be palms place... they have a 2bedroom suites for around $400/night (it only goes up to june as of right now). it includes 2kings and 2 queen sofa beds. But your venetian idea works too... When I stayed at the venetian, I had 2 queens + 1 full sofa bed. So you can get conjoining rooms for a total of 4queens and 2 full beds. I think even their cheapest room have a sunken living room with sofa pull outs.

Try Ballys. They have several Parlor Suites. I believe they are a combination of a Grand Suite and a Deluxe Room and possibly more. They consist of: a 2 Q room + a common room (with a Q-sized Murphy Bed) + master bedroom with a King size bed. Basically, three rooms with connected doors.

I believe these go for under $1000 for two nights after July 4th weekend. I don't believe they are available or listed online so you'll have to call reservations.
They are located in the North Tower.

I booked a Tower suite 930 sq ft room for $420 in TI on a fri and sat. I have 4 other guys going and we all agreed to who bring sleeping bags. When i was calling around few hotels to see who has 2 beds in a suite. Last one place i remember was any Harrahs networked hotels ie Rio.

off topic, but this sounds like the hangover lol

Try VRBO
.com. There are quite a few choices there. Many condos on the strip as well as full size houses with pool tables, pools, hot tubs, etc that are a short drive from the strip. Might be an alternative to the traditional hotel route, and you may find something perfect for the occassion. I've heard its extremely important to read reviews before booking from this website, and don't book unless they accept credit cards.

The Las vegas hilton, not in the center of the strip, but right on the monorail, has a junior suite with two bedrooms consisting of two beds in one room & a king & pullout sofa in the other (joined by a door w/2 bathrooms. They also have a suite that is two standard rooms with a "party room" in the middle with a single king in the middle room. The joined rooms on each side have two doubles or a king per room for a total of 3 rooms. Either option should both be much less than your budget.

I was in Vegas a couple weeks ago. Everyone still references the hangover up until it gets annoying.

MGM suites deal from travelzoo:

$79-$99 -- Vegas: Suite at 4-Star Resort incl. Weekends

http://hotels.travelzoo.com/las-vegas-hotels/725984
Make sure to enter promo code ZOO1. Or call 877-574-4685 and mention code ZOO1. Note: A two-night minimum stay is required, and a $20 daily resort fee applies.

Thankyou MRDEAL... that was perfect timing for my travel plans

MRDEAL said: a $20 daily resort fee applies.

no resort fee at Wynn/encore.

Does the Wynn have a competitive rate? If so, that's a great hotel, but I've never seen SUITES for $79-99/nt. This is a steep resort fee, but a GREAT rate fior a suite.

Try this site; http://www.smartervegas.com/searchresults.aspx?day=22&month=7&year=2009&suite=1 Based on the date, and your criteria, it will give you number of options.

I live in Las Vegas. During July & August, it's about 110 degrees here, so rates are much cheaper than other time of the year. Even locals try to get away from here. Hotels have a lot less guests during this time period. Venetian has the best suite, their club Tao is one of the hottest spot in town. Mandalay Bay has the best pool and their rooms are not bad either. If you are going to lounge around the pool during the day, Hard Rock is the best place to spot hotties. Other than that, the rest of hotels are pretty much the same. Just off the strip, Rio is all suite hotel - cost less than hotels on the strip -, across from PALMS (which has number of hot spots in the property). Palms will give you complimentary pass to their night clubs. Try not to spend too much $$ on the room, you won't be spending too much time there anyway. Compare what comps you can get by staying there, and get as much as you can. Ask nicely, and hotel staff will usually try to accommodate you as much as possible.

Have fun.

My advice is twofold:

Most suites have a single king bed, if you're looking to sleep a lot of people you need dual queens. Upscale rooms with dual queens might be your better option. Try Ceasers or Encore for some killer rooms with dual queens and prices in your budget.

If anyone is looking to get any action the 'lets go back to my suite with 6 other guys' might not go over so well, even in Vegas.

This is true, most suites have a king. During the last bachelor party, we went w/ a queen suite + connecting 2 queen 'standard' room at the Monte Carlo. Then ordered up either 1 or 2 roll-away beds. Those things are pretty damn comfortable.

Just got back from Vegas staying at MC in a Spa Suite for $282 total 3 nights.

The summer promos have not loaded yet so you can wait and not panic. Looks like the Venetian is your best bet. Go for the BELLA QUEEN SUITE (2 beds + sofa). Sleeping on that sofa is not that comfortable. Sometimes, the Rialto Room will be available (2 beds + sofa, 1100 square feet for more elbow room).

It will be pretty hot(100+ degrees) in July so that will keep the rates down. Since your stay includes a Friday and Saturday night, you will not get the lowest rates.

At this point, the best thing is to wait until the spring. If your group is flying out, book the flights now. Also have a back up plan like if suite is not available, we will get 3 queen rooms at the MGM Grand.

First, will you be using the room for anything other than sleeping? If you will be mostly out to clubs, restaurants, bars, then it probably doesn't make sense to book a suite unless you cannot stand the other casinos.

Make sure that any room you lock in has a refundable policy.

$115 for a room, 6 buffets, 2 entries to the spa, & other benefits at the LV hilton or the $169 for 3 nts is still valid. Why not just get a few adjoining room. Since price is an issue, a quick monorail ride gets you to many other hotels on the strip, since the LV hilton is a LONG block off the end of the strip. Nice renovated hotel. One other thing to keep in mind is the FREE dinner buffets include free wine & beer. Not a bad deal considering the buffets would cost $18 per dinner, & you can't beat the free drinks.

The Venetian rialto is absolutely NOT suitable for that many people. It has a bunch of empty, useless space and doesn't look as nice as the cheaper rooms. It also won't be comfortable fitting more than 4 people into a bella. In general, the Venetian/Wynn/Bellagio are best avoided from an accommodations standpoint since their prices vs. size don't scale well.

I'd recommend Palms Place as well, having stayed in their 1br suite before. It's nicer than the previously mentioned hotels and their design is both space-efficient and luxurious. 1800sq ft is no joke, not to mention that 8 people will for sure require 2 bathrooms. Lounging in a Palms Place room will be a Vegas highlight in itself, if not THE highlight. You might also want to check out the new City Center hotels to see if there are any promos going on.

As an aside, assuming your group is going out to party, it might make more sense to book a different hotel each day to ensure you can get into the major nightclubs for free - XS, Tao, Tryst, Moon, etc. 4 males x $40 cover is 160 on a nightclub alone - enough to pay for a decent hotel room. Just something to keep in mind.
