I love downtown. Always stayed at the Plaza. I'm staying at Treasure Island, far away from coworkers..lol! I'll let you know how TI is.
Try bookit.com..they have some HUGE HUGE discounts sometimes. They had a package deal with Paris hotel that was incredible, but I had already booked. The only other place I've stayed was MGM, security is crappy there! I had some guy banging on my door at 3am going physcho and it took them almost an hour to get someone to my room!! Life's not all beer and skittles, mate!
