PubCon Vegas Hotels

Since I’m constantly late about booking hotel rooms for conferences, I have compiled a list of links (to my own reservation system, natch) to hotels in Vegas for PubCon 2006 — but only hotels that I would consider staying at because I’m picky.

The big problem here is that a lot of the convenient or choice places are booked solid for stays beginning on November 13th (the night before the conference begins). I have noticed a couple places DO have rooms if you set your first night to Tuesday, November 14th or later… but for me that’s going to suck to come in early enough on Tuesday morning to drop all my junk off at the hotel and still make it to the first sessions at the conference. (Ah well, I’ll figure it out.)

Please feel free to use the links below to book your rooms. 6% of your total room night cost is profit por moi, and I thank you in advance!

Conference Hotel — Renaissance Las Vegas
3400 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV

On Monorail Line/On Strip — Venetian Resort Hotel Casino
(If no rooms available, try this link for the Venetian instead.)

On Monorail Line/On Strip — SKYLOFTS at MGM Grand
Across street from Monorail/On Strip Bellagio

Need to Take a Cab — Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa

  • 11011 W. Charleston Ave, Las Vegas, NV

Red Rock *just* opened, and it’s run by the people who run the Green Valley Ranch and Resort in Henderson. I spent 5 WONDERFUL days at the spa at GVR last year, so I feel pretty confident that Red Rock is going to be just as nice.

Need to Take a Cab — Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

  • 4455 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV

It’s the Hard Rock… it’s hip and has the coolest pool in Vegas (or so said a special I saw on the Travel Channel).
