    Default Some hotel rates for WCAF 2014

    I just received an email from the Mirage. They are offering discounted rates for the dates of the WCAF 2014 show. Most Vegas hotels now have an additional resort fee.

    Wow those are very reasonable.

    Just to be clear to anyone reading this, the convention has moved to the Paris hotel this year (about 3/4 of a mile from Mirage and Harrahs). They're still great places to stay, but may require transportation or a walk.

    I just wanted to put that out there to avoid confusion about where it is in 2014.

    If you stayed at Harrahs last year or are a member of Total Rewards, Paris is part of the same hotel group.

    Full retail for Paris is below, not including resort fee. As we get closer (in a couple months) the show/group discount prices will be posted, and people will probably find some deals as well for Paris and its neighbors. Total Rewards folks will probably get promo offers too.

    Full retail: (plus $20 per day resort fee)
    FRI 01/17/14 $120.00
    SAT 01/18/14 $144.00
    SUN 01/19/14 $128.00
    MON 01/20/14 $128.00
    TUE 01/21/14 $128.00
    WED 01/22/14 $128.00
    Thx
    Mike

    My understanding is that one of the reasons the show moved was so the show operators (PFM) would have alternative hotels that they could offer as "show" hotels and therefore get credit for their room block commitment.

    I believe there will be several hotels at varying rates in addition to the Paris venue offered by PFM though the official website. If that is the case, I ask that you give the alternates some serious consideration.

    The reality is that every room booked through the show website helps perpetuate the show and allows PFM to continue to produce the best trade show for our industry.

    I know many of you think credit cards are the evil empire- but if you apply for and receive the Starwood American Express card by September 3rd, (no annual fee for the first year) and meet the minimum spending requirements, you can receive 30,000 Starpoints. That's worth more than round trip airfare in the US to/from Las Vegas. If you AND your spouse apply for credit individually, that's 60,000 points. Or, you can also apply for one for your business and one for personal use.

    I calculated that it requires about $833 per month in spending for 6 months to meet the minimum spend - which should be easy if you charge your business expenses to the card.

    The rates I posted are using both Mlife offers for the Mirage and Total Rewards for Harrahs.

    I have been checking rates for about a month and it seems that this week you cannot make an online reservation and check in to the Paris Hotel on Saturday 18th.

    You can count them on one hand, probably a hand that has suffered from an attack by a Morsų!

    Robo has been - ask him.

    The regulars are Lion, Selwyns, F.A.T.G. and myself. ( I hope I haven't missed anyone!

    The big pull is all the fantastic seminars - 100 + check out the website. Good investment.
    I have visited framers in 83 countries. No 2 are the same

    Just got a round trip from Phila on US Air nonstop for $199. I had been watching this and the normal price was around $400+. I was pretty persistent, checking every day for a price drop. Now for a hotel....
