Las Vegas hotel prices
Las Vegas hotels are at absolute peak prices for the week around New Year’s Eve, and at their absolute lowest for the first three weeks of December. Otherwise the high season is from February through May and also from September through November. Prices can also fluctuate greatly whether there is a big convention in town, so it’s best to research ahead and book early if availability seems limited. There are only a few hostels in Las Vegas, and none are probably worth it if you have other options.

Las Vegas was long known as a real travel bargain, as long as you could control yourself on the gambling side of things. Those days seem to be returning lately as a great surplus of hotels has kept prices very competitive and should remain so for years to come.
If you are coming at a time when the city isn’t overly busy you can often get an excellent hotel for an amazing price. Sometimes you have to choose one a bit off the famous Las Vegas Strip in order to get great deals, but they are usually available if you time things right. Staying Downtown will also save money on a hotel and give you a different experience that some actually prefer.
The city is filled with free attractions, even for those who don’t gamble. But if you want to see any of the big name production shows or headline concerts then prices can be very high. If you are on a low budget you can always find a free lounge show or similar if you look around a bit.
Food and drinks are available at nearly every level of the spectrum, unless you are staying in one of the more expensive hotels, when you’ll have to go down the block to find something cheap.

Las Vegas is deep in the desert, so it’s no surprise that temperatures are scorching most of the summer, however humidity levels are always low so it never feels nearly as bad as you might expect. Spring and autumn are considered the best times to come, with warm days and mild nights. It can actually get chilly during winter months so bring a jacket or sweater. Fortunately it almost never rains.
