LAS VEGAS: The $34 Suite


BOOK BY SEPTEMBER 30 | It’s no joke. There are rooms all over Las Vegas that you can get for under $50 a night. Several for less than $30 a night. But when I saw that Rio Las Vegas was having a special 25% off promotion, my ears perked up. Why? Because the Rio, just a short bit off the Strip and across from the Palms, has a resort full of suites. That’s why they call it the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. If you’re looking for a cheap room, and like a little extra space—this deal can set you right. Six hundred square feet of right.

DEAL: It’s called the “Extend Your Summer Sale”. If you book directly through the Rio’s website you can get 25% off by using the promo code,”EXTEND13″. Rooms start at $45 (Deluxe Studio Suite) on their rate calendar but wind up as $33.75 per night before taxes and fees. There are several room styles to choose from and each with their own starting prices.

DATES: Book by September 30, 2013 for travel through February 28, 2014. Blackout dates may apply.

TESTED: Grabbing this deal is easy to do. I found the cheap rate month after month on the Rio website. Most of the cheapest dates were for Sunday through Wednesday. I tested November 24-27. The three nights came to $101.25 or $166.24 after taxes. Note: There is an  extra $20/night resort fee that is taken at the property and includes use of the fitness room and Wi-Fi. If you’re looking for activities as well, try booking through Expedia or They are offering incentives such as 2 for 1 Helicopter tours and more.

NOTE: The new Samba rooms are not included in this promotion but I found King Strip View rooms starting tarting at $60 per night.

TIPS: You might come for the Penn & Teller or Chippendales show, but don’t miss the view from the Voodoo Rooftop Nightclub is pretty spectacular. But hold on to your hats and glasses, it can get pretty windy.
