I booked a deluxe room at Imperial Palace for super-cheap via hotels.com. (Hotels.com was cheaper than the Harrah's website, and is also offering a $20 mail-in rebate if you book through them.)
So true...I didn't want to drive in the first place, but I volunteered to "save money"...mostly because we planned to stay at Nellis and would need a car to do that.
The vacation afterwards is what changed the plan...silly to go back to LA only to fly out the next day, when flying out of Las Vegas was just as easy.
Thanks for the tip on Hotels.com...I will pass that to my wife!
