I think lowering the prices of hotel rooms would be
of interest to me. Sandra S. Long Beach CA.
To entice me, you need to offer free or extremely discounted food.
Food was such a bargain for years, but in the past few visits to Las
Vegas the cost of a decent meal in a casino restaurant is out of control
in my opinion. Howard & Betty. Florida
With gas prices raising visitor will try to find a deals to
componsate for the gas prices. Wether you drive or fly you'll still be
paying for the increase If you fly the airline makes you pay for your
first & secon luggage you also pay for your non alcool drink. I think
visitors will be looking for a deals such lower hotel prices, free gas
with stay or even meals deal. I'll be in Vegas in 2 weeks and I need to
spend more $$$ to fly there. Lise Bedard Brossard Quebec
I would come more often if inexpensive hotel rooms were available.
Thanks to development, inexpensive hotels like The Boardwalk are gone.
Higher gas prices and airfares have reduced my discretionary spending
dramatically. Instead of building more and more high end retail stores
move the outlet mall stores closer to downtown or the strip. At least
improve the bus service to the Outlet Malls. LV no longer has as
many well known entertainers to draw people so offer value for our
dollars. Len Boscarine Burien, WA
Comp rooms with discounted or free airfare would be nice. While your at
it throw in a couple of comp meals and seal the deal. Loren

I'd like a really good price on my hotel room (like you got
before) as well as lower prices on food. A discount on shows would also
be nice. Carol Providence RI
Cheaper room rates. free buffet or discounted meal comps, would make me
visit one casino over another. George Gryak West mifflin,
Reduceing the room rates won't help get e there. They are good as they
are. Pay for my gas.I drive out there. thats the kicker for all of
us.Getting there. I don't mine paying for high price food, its worth it.
I don't mine the rooms rates ,thy are worth it. Getting there is the
problem. Get me there and I'll spend my mony at Your Place.

I think transportation is on everyone's minds whether it's at home or on
vacation. I would be inticed to stay at a hotel if they offered free
Transportation vouchers to use for cab rides or a gas card to use for
filling up the tank of my rental car. Jason Seattle, WA
I bought half price tickets from you other web site, halfpriceshows.com,
and I am good for discount tickets, but room rates is another storey.
I cannt believe how expensive a decent room is in the middle of summer.
Lower the room rates and I will stay a few more days. Gives you
casinos a better chance at winning all my money. William D.
To get more of my money you need to lower the drink prices in the night
clubs. What a joke. Stand around like a sardine and
then have them ask for $14 per drink. Forget about sitting down,
that is another $250 or more. What happen to the fun nightlife of
Las Vegas. Ben T. Dallas TX
For my husband and I, a trip to Vegas will be our major vacation for the
year. My husband is in the lumber business and that is not good.
We made our decision to visit Vegas based on the variety of
entertainment opportunities and would welcome a casino that would offer
a total package special ie. rooms, gambling, dining and entertainment
all in one. It is very important to get as much "bang" for our buck as
possible. Thank you. Michelle R. Dye Colorado City,
It's a pity that most of the good old resorts on the Strip are going the
one after the other. I think it's a mistake to build sophisticated and
extremely expensive ones instead. I love to come to Vegas once or even
twice a year, but if I cannot get a room, a dinner and a good show at a
decent price anymore, I would be very sad but would have to think twice
about it. Don't forget I'm coming from Europe, my flight is already not
cheap ... Micheline Brussels Belgium
With the cost of everything going up up up. Trips to Las Vegas are
getting fewer. I am going to be there in August an am looking for not
only cheaper hotels but buffet since I eat most of my meals & do the
most of my gambling at the casino where I stay. Its nice to get the free
drinks but on my last trip out the waitress was so busy her area had
increased she didn't get around very offen so its either do without a
drink or go seach for one which means less time at the machines.

I think the best promotion that could be ran right now would be
something involving free gas...free gas for a year, 2 years, 5 years,
etc. (with some sort of $$/year cap of course). Tammy Turnbill
Tipp City, Ohio
During the summer it would nice to get reduced rates on cabanas as part
of a room package - enjoying a day in one of those can make you really
feel like a high roller but they can be very pricey especially on
weekends and holidays. Ed Farrar Fort Worth TX
With the economy being what it is, the casino's should look for someway
to promote air/hotel packages that are more afforadable to the customer.
Rooms are not that cheap, but if they were very cheap, or free more
people would consider vegas. The big thing now is the giving away of gas
cards if people buy or stay certain places. Kenneth Brown
