I go to Vegas every few months. I can't see spending points (Hilton or Hyatt) on a room in Vegas. I would much rather use my Hilton points in Florida, Arizona or New Mexico where the tiers are lower and rooms are more expensive.
If you can't find a decent rate for a room in Vegas.....and it isn't a holiday weekend or a trade show....then you're doing it wrong.
IE: I paid $70 for 3 nights at Main Street Station this upcoming trip. The downtown casino/hotel is clean and good enough for me to just sleep, shower and shave after a marathon of poker. This same hotel anywhere else would be $120/night minimum.
Why waste good points in Vegas?
Heck, all those points people are using for these rooms.....I'd be transfering to Southwest so I can fly to Vegas for free.
