Busy Holiday Weekend In Las Vegas

Las Vegas has been relatively quiet for the past two holiday seasons but a new report in The Las Vegas Sun predicts that the City of Sin will be booming again this Christmas and New Year’s eve.

This holiday weekend, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority anticipates that over 250 000 visitors will pass through the city. Last year, 240 000 tourists spent their Christmas weekend in Las Vegas, so this year will mark a 5% increase in activity.

The non-gaming revenues are predicted at reaching upwards of about $160 million, while hotel occupancy is estimated at 80%. This will be one of the busiest times that Las Vegas has seen this year, as people from all over the country gather to celebrate the holidays.

In response to the news, many of the city’s most famous hotels are offering discounted rates. The Bellagio is offering rooms to $169 while the MGM Grand has rooms for about $125. On the lower end, the Hard Rock and the Palms have daily rates that are less than $100. You can even find hotel rooms for about $50 at The Sahara Palace and Imperial Palace.

If you don’t have plans for your holidays yet, Las Vegas is certainly somewhere worth checking this Christmas season – if you’re up to for taking a spontaneous trip!
