The Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas offers this deal for the holidays: Stay three nights and get the last night free. Room rates at this luxury hotel are pricey, but the freebie brings the cost within range for those looking for a nice holiday splurge.
The deal: Yes, there are uber-cheap hotel rooms to be had in Las Vegas, but a stay at the Mandarin Oriental at CityCenter provides a different experience. The hotel has no casino, and it has spectacular views of the Strip and beyond.
When: The deal is good through Dec. 27, based on availability.
Tested: I found a city-view suite with a king-sized bed with the third-night free rate for Thanksgiving (Nov. 27 to 30). Usual price is $505 a night; the free night brings it down to $336 a night, excluding tax and $25 daily resort fee.
I also found a standard room with a view of the Strip before Thanksgiving (Nov. 25-28) for $176 a night (instead of $265) plus tax and resort fee.
Information: Book online at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas or call (888) 881-9578.
