Best way to get good prices from Hotels

What is the best way to get the optimal prices when booking a hotel in Vegas? Is it through the hotel's website? Calling the hotel directly? Through an engine like Expedia?

Thanks for any tips!

Best is to gamble alot. Then they might comp your rooms

Second is gamble some, and they might send you deals.

Sign up for Players Clubs

Next try Smartervegas.com and other sites, if you don't see deals directly on the hotel's website.

Yeah, we're not big gamblers and, very stupidly, the last time we were in Vegas we didn't even sign up for the players card so getting a comped room probably isn't likely at this point.

get the players cards for mgm, harrahs, venetian, and one or two downtown. Play $1 slots at max bet. quit if you get near even or up for the trip. Then the offers will come.

I got a pretty good deal thru Continental Airlines for a Salone Lakeview suite at the Bellagio for $199 a nite starting 9/27. It was $299 thru Bellagio

Always sign up for Players Cards. We get offers all the time. If you don't have offers, a good place to start is the Harrah's website. They have hot deals that offer pretty good rates. Harrahs is a very nice basic hotel and it's usually pretty reasonable. Flamingo is older and more worn and it's usually pretty cheap. Ballys is a nice old hotel and sometimes offers great rates. You can get one of those, then sign up for Players Cards in other casinos and offers will probably come in.

You can also search the internet for LV hotel promo codes. Many times you can find deals that are not listed on the website.

That's what we are doing this time!

Actually, the worst way to get a good deal on a hotel room is to gamble alot. You'll end up spending much more that way (and the casinos know it). Best way is to sign up for the players club and to sign the online guest books as mentioned before. Also, you'll find good promotion codes on websites previously mentioned. Rooms won't be "free", but relatively cheap.
