IFPA Pin-masters, where are people staying?


#1

I’m booked for Pin-masters but don’t have lodging set up. Anyone have a good hotel and a good affordable strategy to get from the airport to the hotel? I was thinking of staying in downtown vegas since I won’t have a car and that will give me a chance to walk to stuff after the tourney. Any suggestions? anyone looking for a room-share?

You will need a car or a taxi to get to and from the tournament location, which is several miles northwest of downtown.

I’m not going, but the trick to Vegas is always utilizing rewards programs. Sign up for Caesar’s Total Rewards ahead of time, and theres a fair chance you can stay at any of their properties for just the resort fee (usually $30/night tops).

The value play is probably staying at Texas Station:

It’s 1.5 miles away from Flipperspiel.

For anyone looking for a value strip deal, the Amusement Expo has a block at the Westgate:

Yeah I was gonna uber or take a taxi.

If you choose to stay downtown, I think Downtown Grand may be the best bang for the buck. Main Street Station if you’re being frugal. Those are the two I’d recommend without hesitation not knowing your expectations.

Uber/Lyft is your friend to get to/from the airport. Avoid the shuttle, it takes way too long.

Man the Texas Station is even $93 a night. and that “Excludes required resort fee: $22.59 per night”

When did everything become such a rip off? WTF is a resort fee?

I’ve had good luck with the Downtown Grand, too, plus there’s a Dennys just out the door, although wait times can be long there. Haven’t booked this year’s room yet since might take the RV.

California Hotel and Casino in Downtown Las Vegas is great. Clean and affordable. Also cheap!


#11

4 queens has no resort fee. Its not luxurious but it’s fine.

I’ve got a room at the Texas Station. I’d much rather be close to the venue at this point, avoid being late and / or being way too close to the big casinos that will take all the money I don’t lose to IFPA fees :slight_smile:

If anyone wants to split the room, PM me. I’m not a party-ier and won’t be up late.
