VTP #5: The Strat, Sahara, and Drew

Start using new names when booking hotel rooms at the Stratosphere, SLS and Fountainblue; those names have been retired.

If you didn’t listen to Monday’s episode, What’s Happening in Las Vegas, some Las Vegas Strip casinos hiked their daily resort fee.


Don’t be late for the Consumer Electronics Show

If you are attending the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas January 7-10, 2020 and haven’t booked your hotel room, you better do it now. Rates have been hiked and open rooms are getting fewer by the day.

During an upcoming Wednesday episode, I’ll share news about a hotel only 1/2 mile from the Las Vegas Convention Center that will be sure to have rooms available for you Consumer Electronic Show procrastinators.

Our Vegas Travel Podcasts are updated daily and published at 5:00 a.m. Eastern Time. You have a wide variety of podcast sites where you can hear us, most notably at Apple Podcasts, which used to be called iTunes until a few months ago. We’re on Spotify, Stitcher and Google Podcasts too.

But Vegas Travel Podcast episodes are different because we also can be heard on Alexa as a Daily Flash Briefing. That’s right, each and every day, Vegas Travel Podcasts update Alexa Flash Briefing for anyone in the world who wants information and news to plan their next vacation or business trip.

If you are an Alexa user, all you need to do is connect with the Alexa Flash Briefing, and request, “Alexa, get me Las Vegas Travel!”

And because we’re on Google Podcasts, you’ll be able to access us through Google Home as well.
