PLEASE MAKE THE RESERVATION FOR YOUR HOTEL IN LAS VEGAS
USING A SECRET CODE GIVEN TO YOU BY THE RED HEADS
(ENABLING YOU TO BENEFIT FROM NICE PRICES) :
For the nights of 14th, 15th, 16th, and 18th March in Las Vegas (the night of the 17th being for most of us at the ranch at the Grand Canyon), please choose from 3 possibilities.
A. « Economy » : 4 night at Imperial Palace : 109,2 $ per person, i.e. 27,3 $ per person per night (taxes included) – rooms of 2 persons.
We currently have “Deluxe” rooms on hold for 14th, 15th, 16th and 18th March. There can be 1 to 4 persons in each room, with 30$ additional fee for the third person and 30$ again for the fourth person. We have calculated the price per person and it is less expensive to be only 2 persons in the room than being 3 or 4. The price per person for 4 nights in a room with 2 persons is and will stay 109,2 $ including tax. By booking these rooms, you will find yourself in the same section of the hotel as everybody else in the group and you will have a view on the strip, the swimming-pool or the mountains.
To make your reservation :
a. find one roommate (best prices at the Imperial are reached by being only 2 in the room) and decide who is going to make the reservation and pay for the deposit ;
b. ask the Red Heads for the reservation code (indicating « Reservation + name of the chosen hotel » in the subject and the names of the persons who will occupy the room to OlivierMunich on the forum www.celinecity.com or by sending an e-mail at email@example.com) ;
c. once you got the code, you will have to call a special phone number (that will be given to you with the code) at least 30 days prior to arrival (or the block will be released), indicating your secret group code, the group’s name “THE RED HEADS”, your reservation dates (do not make any mistake by paying the night of the March 17th if you do the excursion at the Grand Canyon, i.e. make reservation for the 14th, 15th, 16th and 18th March, without the 17th March), the names of the persons who will occupy the room, the adress, phone number, credit card number (and expiration date) of the person responsible for the room AND the type of room you want , i.e. the standard « Deluxe » room: the rates in USD you have to get for 14th, 15th, 16th and 18th, not including tax, are 40, 40, 40 and 75 ;
d. then the deposit (1st night’s room including tax AND the night of the 18th for those sleeping at the ranch on the 17th) will be taken by the hotel (the remainder of the charges won’t be paid until check out) ;
e. cancellation is possible free of charge, provided you cancel at least 30 days before arrival ;
f. the phone number and reservation code are specific to the hotel you have chosen, beware!
You can also book all by yourself, without any reservation code, by checking the availability of even cheaper prices on the hotel’s website http://www.imperialpalace.com for “Capri” rooms. Be careful, online prices do not include taxes. Do not forget to include a 12% tax when watching for prices on the Internet. The online price per person for 4 nights in a room with 2 persons was 100,8 $ including tax, but price may become higher from one day to another. By booking these rooms, you may be isolated from the rest of the group, i.e. you may be in different sections of the hotel and you will be in a remote location behind the tower.
B. « Pleasure » : 4 nights at Caesar’s Palace : 243,38 $ per person, i.e. 60,8 $ per person per night (taxes included) – rooms of 4 persons.
The price difference between « Economy » at 100,8 $ and « Pleasure » at 243,38 $ is 142,58 $, i.e. about 110 €. If you want to enjoy, choose Caesar’s Palace 🙂 It’s not everyday of your life that you are in LAS VEGAS !
We currently have 15 rooms on hold at Caesar’s Palace for the nights of 14th, 15th, 16th and 18th March. These rooms can accommodate up to 4 persons each. For this hotel you really should be 4 in the room, so at to reduce costs and be able to enjoy your Las Vegas stay in this Palace at a reasonable cost. The Red Heads negotiated prices which are not subject to change and which are less expensive than online prices. You really should take advantage of that (4 nights at Caesar’s Palace for 243,38 $ per person, i.e. 60,8 $ per person per night, taxes included, in rooms of 4 persons). You can afford a luxury hotel for 142,58 $ (about 110 €) more per person. Again, it’s not everyday of your life that you are in LAS VEGAS !
To make your reservation :
a. find 3 roommates (best prices at the Caesar’s are reached by being 4 in the room) and decide who is going to make the reservation and pay for the deposit ;
b. = same as for the Imperial above ;
c. same as for the Imperial above, except that the rate you have to get for a room of 4 persons for 14th, 15th, 16th and 18th, not including tax, is 846 USD in total ;
d. e. f. = same as for the Imperial above.
C. « Mix » : 3 nights at Imperial Palace and 1 night at Caesar’s Palace : 146,22 $ per person, i.e. 36,56 $ per person per night (taxes included) – rooms of 2 pers. at Imperial Palace and of 4 pers. at Caesar’s Palace.
By choosing the « mix », you want to be reasonable but enjoying a night at Caesar’s Palace at the same time. In this case, please make your reservations as described above for both hotels. Do not forget that it is better to in rooms of 4 at Caesar’s Palace and in rooms of 2 at Imperial Palace. So please find roommates for Caesar’s Palace by for instance “merging” 2 Imperial Palace rooms with fans who have chosen the same formula as you did. Whether on the Internet or on the phone, do not forget to select or tell Imperial Palace and Caesar’s Palace the exact dates of your stay in both hotels : 14th, 15th, 16th March at Imperial Palace and 18th March at Caesar’s Palace.
