Rising room rates, sold-out hotels signal comeback of big events in Las Vegas Colton Lochhead, Las Vegas Review-Journal · October 21, 2021 at 7:28 pm In a city built on tourism, traveler demand is finally meeting the supply in Las Vegas. With the likes of the Electric Daisy Carnival, a Raiders home game and a slew of other major events throughout the valley, rooms at Las Vegas resorts are hard to come by. And for those handful of rooms that are still up for grabs, you’ll need to pay a hefty sum to snag one. Of the resorts with rooms available, rates this weekend at many are double or more than the price for the following weekend, Oct. 29-31. A room at the Excalibur, for example, will run you $509 a night for this coming Friday through Sunday, according to Hotels.com.
