Not as much as resort fees plus hotel rates!

I really don't get switching hotels to save a couple of bucks. between the hassle of repacking and lugging your shit to the other place, it can't possibly be worth it.

I agree. Only reason I'm doing it this trip is that I have a work conference Tuesday-Friday and don't want to be taking a cab every day to get there.

TIL people actually use their suitcase while in Vegas

Funny story though, I have a friend who went to Vegas for 4 days. Set his suitcase down in the hotel room on Day 1, didn't see him again til Day 4 when he entered the room in the same clothes to grab his unopened suitcase and leave for the airport

Well, everyone has their price. You probably do, too.
"Price" comes mainly in the form of, "How nice is that suite I'll be staying in for free for X days, but have to move into/outof for another Y days?"

Went to Omnia, only major club open on a Tuesday, lines were hundreds deep. Managed to get a walk-in, turning a 2 hour wait into a 5 min one. Omnia sells drinks in 20oz twist-top tumblers. Triple shots for $55.

Came out, about broke even on craps, slept for a few hours, flew out.

Now I'm making 2 hotel moves.

2 days at PHo (comped, pre-conference shenanigans).
3 nights at Luxor (for conference - work paying RFB).
1 night at Golden Gate, just to make sure I have a night downtown.

Might be last trip for a while since BabyIsAPoissonProcess is just a few months away!
