Business and Pleasure—How to Handle Staying Over for a Las Vegas Trip
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!
And you definitely don’t want to end up like Jack. This is why you’re planning to take advantage of your Las Vegas business trip, by extending it a couple of days so you can soak in all that Sin City has to offer.
But where do you start? Where do you stay? And how do you make sure you don’t get tired?
Cubby has a few tricks up its sleeve that’ll help you have a great Las Vegas weekend!
– Plan a Midweek Stay Instead of a Weekend Stay
Especially if the convention calendar is full! Conventions bring in lots of people, so you won’t be likely to find a good room to begin with. And even if you do, it’ll cost you. Instead of opting for a weekend trip where a room may cost upward of $300, choose a Monday–Wednesday stay so you can benefit from the series of empty rooms and low costs. On average, prices can drop to $99 during the week.
– Or Plan a Day of Fun
If you can only afford to have one day off from your busy life, make it worth your time. Keep your Las Vegas travel list to 4–5 places, forgo the hotel room stay, or opt for a BnB. Use Cubby to search for affordable luggage storage in Las Vegas, and leave your suitcases with a reliable Cubber so you can explore the city in peace, hands-free.
– Only Rent a Car if You’re Exploring the City
Plan to start your trip from the Las Vegas Strip and then resort-hop, ending your day with a hike near the outskirts of the city? If your answer is yes, a car rental is the best choice.
However, keep in mind that you’ll need to park a fee whenever you go to a hotel. If you can’t afford it, taxis are a great option—or even ride-shares, but they may add to the final bill if you travel during a surge period.
– Search for Hidden Gems
Take time to look for some nooks and crannies in the city! From quaint pizza places at The Cosmopolitan to bars and hotels that require a special password at the door, Las Vegas has plenty to make your experience unique.
– Be Adventurous with Food
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, which is why the city goes a little nuts when it comes to treating its patrons and guests to some gastronomical anomalies that would seem strange if you had them anywhere else, say, New York City.
For example, boozy milkshakes! Available at Holstein’s Shakes and Buns at The Cosmopolitan, these shakes are… exceptional, to say the least. Definitely something you need to try!
Or Just Relax and Have Fun!
If you don’t have the energy to do all of the above, just head to your resort’s luxury spa!
With amenities such as drinks, light food, a steam room and even a private plunge pool on offer, you can be sure that you’ll be floating on air by the time your masseuse is done; the perfect mood to head home in!
