Here are the top 3 Las Vegas hotel deals that caught my eye this week:
1) MGM Grand Hotel and Casino –- 4 stars
This grande dame of Las Vegas hotels is offering a $25 resort credit, 2-for-1 spa admission and airport shuttle passes to guests who stay two or more nights between May 28 and September 13. You just need to schedule your arrival on a day other than Friday or Saturday.
Why I love this deal: I don’t know what I’d do first: Use my 2-for-1 spa admission to get myself a 100-minute "Amazon Rainforest Ritual" massage, complete with plantain and cocoa powders, or put my resort credit toward a Mediterranean meal at SeaBlue.
2) Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino –- 4 stars
This 4-star Las Vegas hotel on the Strip is offering a $25 credit at the Spice Market Buffet for guests who stay anytime by April 30.
Why I love this deal: Have you been to the Spice Market Buffet? Eat the world over at this top-rated Las Vegas buffet. Load your plate with Mexican, Middle Eastern and Asian specialties.
3) Tropicana Hotel and Casino Las Vegas –- 3 stars
This Las Vegas hotel is offering 2-for-1 meals, free shows and discounts at a dozen stores to guests who stay between April 1 and December 31, 2009.
Why I love this deal: In the laundry list of freebies, free cannoli forced a double-take. Yes, just have dinner at Carmines Restaurant, and you get a crispy shell with creamy goodness inside for dessert. Need I say more?
