Cheap hotels and vampires

Just a couple of late Friday images for you. First, since we’ve stayed there a few times and I’ve signed up for the email promos, we have been receiving a lot of advertisements recently from some of the Vegas hotels. One of our favorites to stay at was the pyramid at the Luxor - the rooms are unusual, I recommend about the tenth floor, so the views, whichever side you are on, are really nice, and the casino entrance from the front door is about the most impressive buildings ever. I particularly like looking at the mountains to the west. With the economy doing poorly a lot of the local hotels are not booking as well as they would like, and so are offering some pretty good deals. This one seemed particularly nice:

If you want to take some time off, look at that, $35 rooms at the Luxor in December. Wow. You could probably get some good airline rates, booking this early. It’s at the south end of the Strip, between Mandalay Bay and Excalibur, a short walk over to NYNY and MGM. I would highly recommend it if you want to just get away for a few days. Want something fancier? The Venetian and Wynn are both also advertising cheaper rooms, but those are around $98 week nights, and also both very nice places.

For you Twilight fans, with all the stuff floating around about the new movie, let’s not forget:

Angel would so kick Edward's butt . . .

As would Spike
