Did you check rates at Tuscany ?

Their rooms are very large.

I think the problem with your allowance
is that the rates on weekends can go
way up.

Caution:

I stayed in the Crestwood Suites by the
Rental Car Center when I needed a cheap
room for a night. The pictures on the
internet made it look reasonable, but I
would NOT stay there again. It was
run-down and sortof creepy.

There is a point when the rooms are tax free in Nevada. It might be 28 days, or it might be 30. Usually casinos are not that interested in booking over that minimum number of days. If you end up with 4 days at some outrageous rate, it could blow your budget.

But Las Vegas is full of long term stay hotels. A budget of $1500 is certainly reasonable for most of them, if not the finest Marriot hotels.

Emerald Suites has free Wi-Fi

I always stay at the Platinum, so I may be biased, but you could score a room for probably $99 a night there, and you get a 1 bedroom apt. full kitchen seperate living, bed and bath rooms. I know this is over budget, but if you are cooking in the room how much more are you saving? Plus close to the action if that is needed, hell the Tuscany is next door and have low limits and marilyns cafe is cheap and good.

Cant you buy places in the Platnium for about $1500? I know they are being dumped on the market.

Last I checked about 69K. Then you need to decide if you want it in the rental pool, if so owners are allowed 60 days a year, and the association fees are high. Like $700 a month

Wow, that's not a great housing allowance, is it?. Is that assuming 5 nights a week and flying home on the weekends? If you count only Monday through Friday and get Independence Day off, that's an average of about $71/night.

If it was me, I'd find an extended stay hotel, not a casino, convenient to the work site, to stay at. I'd make sure it had a kitchen so I could get some cheaper meals, and maybe save some there. Hopefully they are springing for a rental car too.

Extended Stay Hotels showed several different brands located in various areas of LV for $37-46 a night for a studio suite or $66 for a one bedroom suite. Emerald Suites Las Vegas listed a one bedroom suite for $867 for a 21 night stay (the max they offered on their website).

Good luck finding something decent for $1000 and gambling with the other $500.

Progrocker.
Also check out this website.Or check out the Meridian gated resort. It is just minutes from the strip offEast Flamingo Rd. It has Great condos and excellent none gambling facilities, just what you need for a month in Vegas Baby. There are also some good resaurants close by.

Hope this helps.
