Pet Friendly Hotels in Vegas

Caesars petsWondering if you can bring your dog to Las Vegas? The answer is yes. Several hotels, including Caesars properties are now offering to take your pet while you stay in Vegas. This doggy resort called PetStay sounds pretty cool; we will have to try it with the company dog.

Caesars Palace, Rio All-Suite Hotel Casino and Imperial Palace in Las Vegas are rolling out the red carpet for traveling dogs, with the launch of PetStay, the resort’s new pet-friendly hotel program. Guests participating in the PetStay program are greeted by several canine-friendly in-room amenities including a mat, food and water dishes (a full continental breakfast for your little buddy when yours comes in the morning if you want even – but can dogs eat oranges even), disposable waste bags, dog treats and all sorts of pet products & supplies are available should you need them. Caesars Palace, Rio All Suite Hotel Casino and Imperial Palace each host a designated PetStay area within the hotel, equipped with welcome packets that direct guests to outdoor relief areas and dog walking routes as well as specialty room service menus. Additional information about dog-friendly items for purchase and nearby dog services (such as grooming, walking and veterinary care) is available upon check-in at each of the participating resorts.


Caesars Palace, Rio All-Suite Hotel Casino and Imperial Palace have the following pet policy: Dogs staying at any of the three hotels must weigh 50 pounds or less and be present at the time of check- in. Up to 2 dogs per room are allowed. Dogs are permitted to walk through designated common areas while on a leash and accompanied by the owner.

Hotel room rates for owners traveling with a dog are competitively priced at a $25 per night upgrade for designated pet-friendly hotel accommodations in the Augustus Tower at Caesars Palace; a $20 per night upgrade applies to similar accommodations at Rio All-Suite Hotel Casino and Imperial Palace.

Tropicana in Vegas offers $200 Freeplay Reimbursement

Tropicana Hotel and Casino Vegas

Gambling in Las Vegas is a tradition dating many years back, as is losing money from doing so (for most people). This time, however, the Tropicana in Las Vegas is offering a special deal that really works against the whole “I lost all my money at the slots” thing–if you stand in line to get a free Tropicana player’s card, there’s a +EV promotion where you can play $200 in slots or video poker, and if you lose, you get an immediate $100 back in freeplay, with $100 more in freeplay if you come back 30 days or later. It’s like breaking even, if you have the discipline and time to come back. You must walk to the player’s club and insert your card immediately into the kiosk after you lose. There’s no marker to keep track of your remaining $100, so be sure to keep track of your pulls or hands. We love deals at Vegas, and if you’re a AAA member, you can head to the Tropicana and get deals on rooms with the following link: AAA Discount, Get 15% Off as well as reading up on your plan for dominating the slots on the Tropicana page. Enjoy!

Vegas Venetian Hotel Sues Tea Party Nation of Tennesee for $642,000

Venetian Hotel in Vegas

If we got a hotel bill in the sum of $642,144, we’d be a little concerned, regardless of how swanky the hotel we stayed at was. In this instance, however, the Venetian hotel owner Las Vegas Sands says the Tea Party Nation of Tennesee reserved 1,637 room nights in the hotel for the period of July 14-18, then postponed and later cancelled their event, which is where the bulk of the fee comes from. The Tea Party Nation of Tennesee cited a lack of people willing to pay for the $399 weekend pass ($125 per day). The bill also includes an 18% interest charge of $87,996. The Venetian includes a great variety of amenities and perks, and should you choose to stay there (and not cancel), we’ve got all the information for you HERE.
