keep in mind that even if using points for your stay they will charge you the damm resort fee.
Thanks everyone for the responses on the Tropicana.

Last night I booked it for 2 nights in January.

Used Hilton Reward points and only had to pay the resort fees which were $33 (gulp) per day. $66 for the trip.

The resort fee includes: internet access; fitness center access; valet/self parking; buy 1-get 1 free signature cocktail in Oakville Steakhouse 5PM-7PM daily; 2 for 1 at the Laugh Factory; 2 bottles of water per stay; local & toll-free calls.

Now the big question is will they give us a bag of warm chocolate chip cookies upon check-in like they do at all other Doubletrees?

no cookies, the relationship with Hilton Rewards is more of a marketing thing so the Trop comes up if you search vegas on the Hilton site,and you can use your points.

the resort fee really sucks in that my gf was Silver at that time and we would have gotten all that anyway, but they wouldn't waive the resort fee.

after the trip she did contact Hilton about that and if I recall correctly, they just gave us some bonus points

Can anyone recommend one of those bar/club crawl companies? I see one on groupon but looks like there are a ton of options out there. Anyone have a good experience with them?

So where are the best places to play 2/5?

regarding uber, I saw somewhere a ride from red rock to the strip would be $40? That can't be right can it?

That seems high if they meant Red Rock Casino. They could have meant Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

no, I'm staying at the RR Casino - so like 5 miles from the strip

there are shuttles from RR casino to strip, so maybe not an issue

I live in Summerlin about 2 miles from RR and an Uberpool ride from my house to Bellagio runs about $13-15 (actually it costs me $2.99 with an Uber ride pass but you won’t have one of those) so from RR to the strip should be $15-20. Also, RR to the Bellagio is about 12 miles if you take W Flamingo Rd. Other routes are about 18 miles.

I’d stick to Bellagio, Aria, Wynn (Encore), and The Venetian for 2/5 as they’ll have the most games and are pretty close to each other. Max BI’s are $500, $1000, $1500, and $1000 at those 4 casinos.
