Vegas Stag do.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm best man for my mate who desperately wants to go to Vegas for his Stag. I thought that the wonderful GF would be the best place to ask for any advice.

 

Which is the best way to book this sort of thing? Flights and hotels separately? Or maybe just do the flights and find a hotel when we get there?

 

Also, best hotels? I've heard the MGM Grand is the business.

 

Basically, what's the cheapest and best way to get 14 people out to Vegas for a monumental piss-up?

I went through a holiday site when I went, we checked out all the different options but to no cheaper than buying it all together. I stayed the Excalibur, which was decent for the price we paid and we were close to all the goings on

Just so you know, prostitution is illegal in vegas, but legal in reno

 

Duly noted!

 

I think I will be arranging for some of the party to stop on the way. Most want to fly direct though. I was thinking more about the hotels. I'm always hearing how cheap they are but they seem to be pretty pricey. I though there may be some well know ploy to get cheap rooms!

When i went in May, I just searched for Vegas Hotel Promo codes and got loads of promo codes.

 

Obviously it will be cheaper mid-week, but you should find rooms for around $50-60 a night

If you wire a load of money over to a casino account, they will give you a room/penthouse (depending on how much you send them) for free, you don't have to spend the money in the account and can retrieve it on your way home. Suckers!

Package Holidays, US Flights, Hotel Deals in USA & Canada – American Holidays

 

 

Try that site mate. They are doing 4 nights in Vegas including accomodation for €486. Not sure how this compares to UK companies. Of course, this will be flying from Dublin so you will have to include the cost of getting to there also.

 

Was in Vegas last year. Will be excellent for stag, but for a couples retreat San Francisco was more my cup of tea.

Would be advisable to stay in a hotel on the middle of the Strip, otherwise you'll spend hours walking or in taxis. I stayed in the Luxor which was great, but a bit of a haul up to the other hotels.

 

The MGM is a little more central and has the added bonus of a lion enclosure in the lobby.

 

Shop around online as room prices can vary greatly.

Few tips mate:

 

1. If its your first time dont go cheap, you will only spoil the experience

2. Bellagio Hotel..

3. when playing slots, tip the waitress $20 when she takes your first order, this will ensure she will be ultra efficient when it comes to topping you up with beer. You ll be amazed how slow they can be if you dont tip them. Trust me the $20 will more than pay for itself.

I stayed down in the Venetian and would recommend it also. Huge fucking rooms too and two different levels, good for when you are banging that pair of mexican midget prostitutes, MMP's for those in the know.

Vegas? Whatever happened to being humiliated down the local?

 

Tell me about it! That's what I'm going to do though. Nice and easy, maximum number of people. Piss up.

Why the Bellagio? I've heard good and bad and sort of decided on MGM. As it happens, the stag wants to stay at the Bellagio, but I think that's just because it's been in films.

There are plenty of amazing hotels, all will come with a degree of contrasting reviews mate, however along with the fountain show (which is brilliant) and o cirque du soleil you can get the salone suite for under £900 for a week:

I was only half-joking. I think this whole thing has gone a bit mental. Yes, nice excuse for a trip away, but some of the ones i have been invited to are just plain ludicrous.

Bloody hell Gav when opened thread thought it was going to be your stag do....

 

Fly via Denver or LA then get internal flight, southwest airlines will probably be cheap, I have done it that way although was while ago now.

 

Aviod the top end of strip by circus circus etc real old hotels which will be cheap but not exactly top notch.

Venetian and Luxor would recommend, look for group discount codes that you can use, or contact direct to ask about it then will usually accomodate.

 

Or just tell em Mr Smith will play for free that will get you sorted.

 

So were is yours then.

Brighton for mine. Already warned the pubs and the local prostitutes that 60-odd pissed up blokes are on their way!

 

Can't be doing with going away. Just got back from Portugal for a stag do, £800 worse off. Vegas will cost that before I drink anything! And I drink a lot.

Nice one, thanks.

It has gone mental. Everyone goes away these days and it just seems to be getting more and more elaborate. Keep it simple, get pissed and get tied to something or someone. Happy days.
