Going to Vegas next week for Convention, Need 4* for 3 nights starting Sunday,

Looking for any advise on how late to leave it before I should start bidding and any other help & recomendations.

Hoping for Convention Center, or North / Center / South Strip.   Not too fussy, willing to take the monorail etc.

Also is is it better to book on the regular pricelink link on BFT or at amazing-bargins.com/pricelineline.

Thanks very much.

$60 isn't going to cut it during the National Assocation of Broadcasters convention. The best time to start bidding for this was probably several months ago. I hope an amazing deal comes up for you at the last minute, but I wouldn't count on it.

Hot Wire showed North Strip 4* for 110 or a bit less  3-4 days ago and has been falling a buck or so each day, made a few bids working up from 30% off, no luck,    Ended up with SLS for $79 per night off KAYAK....good to be close to Conv for NAB.
