NBA All Stars Weekend puts strain on Las Vegas Hotel Rates

The 2007 NBA All Star weekend is set to play the court at the Thomas & Mack center in Las Vegas. This marks the first NBA All Star game to be played in a city that does not host it's own NBA team. Throughout Las Vegas, hotels are selling and room rates are rising. The All Star Weekend begins officially on Friday, February 16th with events leading up to the "All Star Game" on Sunday, February 18th. The event dates combined with President's Day and Chinese New Years is expected to sell out the city's hotels.

You can still book rooms at premium hotels through the guys at http://www.nbaallstarsweekend.com/ . I called the hotels direct and premium hotels such as the Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, the Aladdin and the Orleans are seeing sold out dates on Saturday and Sunday, I found these guys and was able to book rooms for the entire weekend including Thursday. The website only features Friday through Sunday dates, but give them a call at 1-800-NBA-WEEK, they have limited room availability for Thursday as well.

I'm fucking annoyed after putting in a few bids on hotel rooms on travelocity and finding NOTHING in the vicinity. Are you kidding? Vegas is supposed to be party central and it's QUITE pathetic that everything is all marked up like this. Thanks for the site, will give it a look and spread the word.
