Yes, I stayed at Hooters, the price was too god to resist not to mention that the reviews on TripAdvisor did not seem to be as bad as the name would have implied. Actually some incredible prices were mentioned so I wondered whether I could get the same. “On my annual trip to Vegas for a trade show and stayed at Hooters. Snicker all you want but for $20 a night you can’t find a better deal.”
So I started an Excel file and I kept checking the prices. I checked not only for the day I wanted, January 12, but for the previous days as well as I was curious to see whether booking 2 days in advance or on the day of the check-in would make any difference.
The following prices are per night as I was interested to stay there only 1 night.
Some interesting facts:
- It seemed the later you booked the better the price, for example on Sunday 8 the price of room for check-in the same day was only around $38, on Monday 9 Jan for check-in Monday only around $44.
- Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 the prices were high, I suppose because of the Consumer Electronics Show
I booked my room for Thursday on Tuesday (didn’t want to risk any more, like the price of a stock that you want and keeps falling but you feel at any moment it might go up so you decide to pull the trigger). And I was somehow right, had I waited until the last day I would have had to pay more (had I waited one more day I would have saved a few $, not too much).
They are quite funny:
The disadvantage of not eating meat, why would they not offer a free vegetables dinner ? Maybe because the statistics show that vegetarians don’t gamble (really don’t know whether it is true I just made it up).
The conclusion is that it is not a luxurious hotel but I might stay again if the price is right.
They even sent me a survey (the proper way, not like other surveys): Upon completion, you will be entered into our contest for a chance to win a 2 Night Stay, $50 Food and Beverage Credit and Airport Transportation in an Official Hooters Casino Hotel Escalade!
And no, I did not keep the water bottles.
