The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has rooms available in the Paradise Tower on Wednesday night and Sunday night for $106, and Saturday night for $156. In the HRH All-Suites Tower, rooms are available for $146 Wednesday and Sunday, and $206 Saturday night. These are all through the CES attendees’ booking site.
The CES site also has …
Mandalay Bay for $129 a night Wednesday and Saturday, and $89 on Sunday night.
Alexis Park for $79 a night, Wed–Sun.
Circus Circus starting at $50 on Wednesday night, with Thursday and Friday nights for $75 a night.
Not attending CES but still want to (ahem) sleep in Vegas this weekend? At Expedia, you can still book Circus Circus for $149 a night, the Stratosphere for $192 a night, and the Tropicana for $167 a night.
Thanks to a nightmare last-minute CES booking a few years back, we got in early and will be bunking in a GO room at the Flamingo and at the still-spankin’-new Vdara. Our inner geek can’t wait to play with the remote-controlled blackout shades, the flat-screen TVs, and the in-room WiFi, even though we have to (yuk) pay for it.
Finally, if you want to room next to a porn star, your best bet is the Palms Casino Resort, which is hosting the AVN Awards on Saturday night. Rooms are still available through the hotel directly—for a whopping $999 on Thursday night, $699 on Friday night, but just $209 on Saturday, the night of the “Oscars of Porn.”
