Feeling impulsive and hoping to book a last-minute getaway to Las Vegas for New Year’s Eve? Despite the notion that Sin City is virtually sold out and that the only remaining rooms are wildly expensive, a variety of lodging options is still available.
And a two-night (Sunday and Monday) stay on the Strip can be as little as $320, taxes included.
A couple of blocks north, a deluxe room at the Stratosphere for the same two nights is selling for $393.08 at the hotel’s website. More options are available for guests willing to book Sunday and Monday nights, instead of just Monday, which is New Year’s Eve.
Bellagio, on the other hand, is sold out for Monday, a telephone reservation agent at the property told me.
New Year's Eve draws well over 200,000 visitors to Las Vegas. Many book well in advance.
“I don’t want to say we’re going to sell out, but it looks like the city’s going to be pretty full for this New Year’s,” said Bryan Allison, chief operating officer of Vegas.com.
