Las Vegas !!

It's our 10 year anniversary & we're planning a quick 3 night getaway to Vegas.
There are some decent rates on the jet blue web site, is that the best way to go or are there better deals out there?
I haven't been there in years so any money saving tip would be appreciated!

Re: Las Vegas !!

We did a JetBlue getaway last time. We stayed at the W, which is at the far end of the strip, but still on the monorail. It is connected to the SLS and includes a lot of shared amenities. We stayed at the SLS before the W opened and liked that a lot. They transported us back and forth to the airport via SUV, which saved us some money. JetBlue often has deals where you get money to spend at the hotel, so we had $50 each to spend at our hotel, and we got more money to spend because we signed up for player cards at the casino. That paid for our coffee each morning and snacks when we came back from a late night out.

I love JetBlue... but 3 night??? I'd stay 4 if you can (it's a very long flight!!!).

Also, I've seen people who booked JetBlue vacation packages get special consideration during things like a 5 day rain out of a Bahamas beach vacation... I think the company is awesome (seriously, I think even got their credit card... I'm a believer).

Flight is only 5 hours, that's not that long. Ive done long weekends in Vegas and it's been fine.

We would like to stay longer but our daughter will be with our parents & they can only take so much Chat Icon

Jet blue really does seem like the way to go so I guess we just have to decide where we want to stay.
I love the Bellagio & Mandalay Bay but they are both so pricey. We're trying to decide if we should splurge or just stick to the budget & go somewhere else.

IMO don't splurge on a room in Vegas. You will not be there except to sleep.

Splurge for your anniversary! We love the cosmopolitan and get a room facing the bellagio fountains and it has a balcony.

Re: Las Vegas !!

Thanks for the suggestions. We got a great deal with Jet Blue for a newly renovated, high roller room at the Flamingo ??
If anyone has any other money saving suggestions while we're there, I'd love to hear it.
We're planning to renew our vows with Elvis ?? so we're looking into deals for that now.
