Want to know how to book cheap five-star hotels in Las Vegas?
I’ve stumbled upon an amazing Priceline hack!
This amazing Priceline hack will save you hundreds of dollars on five star hotels in Las Vegas. It essentially removes all the guess work from making blind bids on Priceline’s “Name Your Own Price” bookings and allows you multiple bids to give you the cheapest possible price for a five star hotel in Las Vegas.
You are guaranteed to get a five star hotel in Las Vegas on The Strip for an excellent price!
Let me show you how!
This is a real example of a booking I made 12-15 October 2014.
Step 1: Search on Priceline
Run a search on Priceline for the dates that you’re interested in. When I ran my search Trump International Hotel, Las Vegas was the cheapest five star hotel in Las Vegas for the dates that I was looking at.
Notice that the only five star hotels in Las Vegas are on The Strip (except for one in Summerlin). This information is KEY!
Step 2: Compare with Express Deals
Look at the Express Deals for five star hotels on your dates. Take note of the cheapest five star option available.
Here we can see that the cheapest five star hotel in Las Vegas for the Express Deals costs $102 a night – a saving off 40%. This indicates, along with other factors such as hotel amenities and guest ratings, that this is Trump International Hotel. (Trump International Hotel doesn’t have a casino, note the dice is missing from the amenities icons, so we can tell that this is the hotel we are getting.)
Step 3: Name Your Own Price Bookings
Using the information from Step 1 and 2, we can make an informed bid when naming our own price. We know the Express Deal for Trump International Hotel is $102 so we should be able to bid for lower than that.
Now here’s the trick!
Because the only five star hotels in Las Vegas are on The Strip, you can basically get unlimited bids for Name Your Own Price bookings on five star hotels in Las Vegas simply by selecting a new area (excluding Summerlin) to include each time you try.
Make a bid at, say $60. It gets declined. In order to bid again, you have to either expand your search area or alter your star level. Areas 1-6 and 9-13 don’t contain any five star hotels but you can still select them, one by one, in order to increase your bid over and over again until you are successful!
Step 4: Enjoy Your Stay in Las Vegas at a Five Star Hotel!
I used this trick to get a Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas for $95 a night for three nights during the week.
I also used the same method to get The Venetian for $155 a night for Friday and Saturday night.
UPDATE November 2015: I just used this exact method to get the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas for $79 a night for three nights mid-week and The Palazzo for $95 a night for one night mid-week.

We recommend using Blacklane for private airport transfers when flying into Las Vegas McCarren Airport. Taxi lines at the airport can get very busy.

Are you willing to give it a go next time you’re in Sin City? It works well for weekday and weekend stays.
You could also try this in other cities. All you have to do is identify the areas that do not contain any other five star hotels and select these areas for your rebids.
