Let Loose in Las Vegas: Sin City on a Dime

By Summar Ghias, dealnews contributor

Are you currently on a sheepish "I-may-have-grabbed-candy-from-my-kids'-Halloween-stash-after-they-went-to-bed" sugar high crash? Those sweet-and-sour Skittles were probably worth it, but the prospect of seemingly endless glucose-induced chaos as your kids eat their way through their bag of treats may feel utterly exhausting. For a respite of the sinful variety, we've collected some sweet deals to Las Vegas that will have you on another kind of high entirely.

Pack your bags and fly to Sin City for an astonishingly low price with United Airlines. The Star Alliance partner is offering round-trip fares starting at just $123.60 (a low by $21; expires November 4). That's the lowest base rate we've seen for airfare to Las Vegas via this airline all year.

Once you land, take comfort in the Westin Las Vegas Hotel Casino & Spa where a nightly stay will set you back a mere $99 (a low by $20; expires November 29). The hotel doubles as both a gambling haven and relaxing spa, to boot making it perfect for the inevitable massage you'll need after some tense rounds at the tables.

Looking for some chic European style on this side of the pond? Stay in the heart of the Strip at the sophisticated Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (from $70, a low by $8; expires December 31). Here you can take in a convincing replica of the ever-romantic Eiffel Tower while enjoying the bustling nightlife and house music at the Chateau's 22,000-square-foot outdoor nightclub. Or, wander the stylish Parisian gardens with views of the glittering lights of the Strip.

Affordable debauchery is at your fingertips, too, with a stay at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino, which includes free in-room WiFi, for $58.47 per night (a low by $18; expires December 31). The hotel boasts a sprawling 90,000-square-foot casino gaming area and rowdy Honky Tonk nightlife at Gilley's Saloon. That's not all; lodging costs are low enough that you'll have plenty of cash for guilt-free entertainment a la the hotel's pirate plundering drama, Sirens of TI, and jaw-dropping acrobatics at Cirque du Soleil's Mystère.

If you'd prefer to catch some entertainment outside of your resort, settle in for a night of laughs at V the Ultimate Variety Show for $39 (a low by $21; expires November 7). The show combines special effects, magic, comedy, and acrobatic performances from the likes of former Cirque du Soleil and Barnum & Bailey performers Iuori and Nikoli, and The Tonight Show alumus Russ Merlin.

Snag a spacious 2-room suite at the Embassy Suites Las Vegas (from $119, a low by $10; expires November 15) and you'll be within walking distance from the Strip and across the street from the Hard Rock Casino. The deal comes complete with complimentary drinks and appetizers at the nightly Manager's Reception, as well as free shuttle service to both the airport and the Strip. Its proximity to the hustle and bustle makes it appealing for the visitor who doesn't want to be in the thick of the chaos.

If you'd rather slumber in peace even farther away from the crowded Strip, stay at the Element by Westin Las Vegas Summerlin instead. The hotel is offering nightly stays for just $99 (all-time low; expires November 4), bundled with free breakfast and complimentary WiFi. Located 15 minutes away from the city's center, the hotel features city studio suites with fully equipped kitchens and rain showers.

Similarly, experience a different side of Vegas at the Red Rock Resort and Casino. A 2-night stay now comes bundled with a $100 spa credit and two feast buffet breakfast passes ($199, a low by $83; expires November 13). You can participate in swim-up gaming at the open-air casino on the premises, and take part in plenty of out-of-the-traditional-Vegas-box activities such as mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking by the nearby Red Rock Canyon.

Las Vegas has plenty of tricks up its sleeve to make for an ideal getaway. If you're lucky, you'll have even more highs than the ones your kids are undoubtedly having at home. But, if you've got different ideas for a vacation, be sure to check out our daily travel deals for other airfare, hotel, and vacation packages.
