Topic: Summer Resort Rates

Tue 4/8/2008 8:06a
A while back, I had claimed that you could get a higher quality luxury experience off prop at places like the Ritz-Carlton and J. W. Marriott for $100/night less than the GF & Poly respectively. I was challenged and we all ran the numbers and they didn't jive with the numbers I had gotten last August making me look like an idiot. Well, I just ran the numbers for this summer again using June 14th as a target date and this jives with my claim last year.

$385- GrandFL
$340- Poly
$325- YC, BC, & BW
$285- OKW
$279- Ritz-Carton
$225- WL
$219- J. W. Marriott

So with the rates available now, The Ritz is running $106/night less than the Grand, and the J. W. is running $121/night less than the Poly. But considering he quality of the facility and the service given at the J. W., I wouldn't have any problem with directly comparing it to the Grand at a nightly savings of $166. Heck, the Ritz Carlton is less than Old Key West. I know its slummin' it, but to save $100/night I can suffer through it, so if anyone is interested here is a link to the Grand Lake Resort.

What's the price difference in staying on or off the Strip in Las Vegas? Isn't that the same difference?
Tue 4/8/2008 8:16a
Yep, but the difference is, on the strip you get great service and accommodations. the same cannot really be said about WDW. (Thankfully it can about DL however)

You're on to something there. The Ritz of off-prop there too. Hmmm.
Let's see, the Ritz LV for June 14th is $209, the Venetian is $219.

LV actually seems all over the place with the rates. The 5 Star 4Seasons which is on the strip is $326, and the 4 star Palms, which is off the strip is $324

So fr $2 more you get an extra quality star and a room on the strip.
