TRAVEL LIKE A PRO TO LAS VEGAS!

I cannot believe I have lived in Vegas for almost six years! That is a record for me! As someone who has lived in ten cities over the last ten years you can only imagine how odd that feels. I always get asked…How do you live here all year long? or Why am I not on the East Coast? To be honest with you I’m not sure I could do what I do anywhere else. As more of my business has moved online I could work from anywhere. However, what I want and need would not be at my finger tips as it is here in Vegas! And most of what I want is here in Vegas and just not found anywhere else!

The reason why I moved to Vegas in the first place was because I took a promotion with a company I was working for in the world of private aviation and luxury vehicles. Per usual, I said YES! Packed up my two 70 pound suitcases and hopped on a flight from San Diego. Seriously! I didn’t even have time to look for an apartment because they needed me right away. I got to live in various hotels on “The Strip” for quite some time. So if you ever need to know how to save money on “The Strip” I am your girl! Contact me here…

I wanted to share some tips with you from a few of my friends who have some pretty demanding and reputable jobs here in town. In my opinion they are the best at what they do! And as I always say SERVICE IS KEY. In any industry but especially in Las Vegas and they all do just that!

A few tips I would like to give you is to hire someone who knows the ins and outs of the city. Someone who can create a complete itinerary for you with your budget. Someone who will be able to save you money in one place to be able to use the extra in another. For example: Locals get great rates on attractions. That would save you money. Then that extra money you would have used can be put towards better seats at a show! Get it! By the way I create a pretty dam good itinerary. Just saying…

Always hire a Professional to help you create the best experience for you. It doesn’t matter if you are here for a convention or bachelorette! There is always time to get things done. Vegas is 24 hrs!  I’m speaking from experience as I have had clients email me lists of what they need prior to their arrival. I shop for it so it is here for when they arrive and deliver it to them. That saves them time and money and that is just something simple.

If you are looking to come to Vegas just to get away you should keep in mind holidays and calendar holidays as rates are much higher. If you are coming with a group and you have been nominated to plan the trip then absolutely contact someone to help you plan everything. Your trip will be so much more enjoyable without the stress of you planning it all.

I had a group of 18 last year that I had planned every dinner, transportation and event for. I had concierges doing meet and greets and texting me throughout the trip so I knew when and where that group was if I wasn’t there myself. I do this because I am a perfectionist and want every single person I deal with leaving Las Vegas extremely happy and wanting to come back for more…

Over fight weekend a few years ago I had 48 people I was personally in charge of. That was just completely insane! I manged it (through many miracles). And everyone left happy. We all made a lot of money but then I ended up in the hospital. I was prepared times ten but that weekend was definitely out of the norm. I had armed protection with me at some points. It was just insane! My point is hire a professional to take care of your trip. If my clients tried to book anything themselves that weekend they would have been in their rooms. Even the pools had 3-4 hour lines to get into. It does not matter what you plan on doing or spending. The point is you deserve the best service when you are here. So you must try to plan as ahead as you can. And that is what I did for those groups. They all left happy and that made me happy…

So if you are planning a trip to Vegas let me know and I can help create THE BEST itinerary for you! If you are in need of an Event Planner I can also do that! When someone contacts me to produce an event for them I send them a document to fill out. It is just a list of questions to answer so that we are on the same page. Budget, design, purpose, branding etc. This is one of my favorite ways to work with clients coming to town. Producing and designing events…

Here are a few tips from a Concierge for first timers…

Tip #1: Don’t try to cram everything into one trip, there is just too much to do in so little time. Pick a few key things and stick with those.

Tip #2: Plan in advance! Too many people wait till the night of or the day before to buy tickets or book a reservation and then get upset when they don’t get what they want. Trust me, the price won’t go down for good shows just because there are empty seats.

Tip #3: Trust your Concierge. The last thing we want is to spoil your vacation and send you somewhere you won’t like. It’s our job to make you happy and give you the best trip possible!

Why use a Concierge?

Yes, you can read reviews online and even book your experiences so why use a Concierge? As the old saying goes, time is money. It’s simple really, Concierge saves you time by being your one stop shop for everything you want to do (as long as it’s legal and ethical). You don’t have to waste hours on end researching that best seat for a show or picking from the two dozen steakhouses. Give us some info and we guide you in the right direction. Our goal in the end…make you happy! Hotels pay us to make you happy so why not use us, we’re free (although gratuity is always appreciated).

Another Concierge tip…

Always sign up for a Player’s Card at properties. It doesn’t matter if you gamble. There are so many more benefits such as restaurant and shopping discounts that are definitely something you should take advantage of! The more you spend and swipe the more discounts. Also room upgrades are possible. Who wouldn’t enjoy that?

Thousands of people come to Las Vegas just for the club scene. And out of that large group I would say 75% of them have no idea that the lines to get into a club here can be 3-4 hours long (depending on the DJ). All I can say is that you must use a reputable Host. You have to spend the money to have the best experience. Do you think if someone gave you free show tickets it would be the best show and seats on The Strip? I don’t think so…

You need to use a host that has been in the business for years and has built a strong following based on excellent service. That host for that I would recommend is Johnny Reyes.

See Johnny’s Do’s and Dont’s below…

Do: Always get a Host to help sort out your itinerary. They live here and know a lot more than what you think or have heard. Let them know: How many people in your group, budget, likes and dislikes, dates, and other activities you might want to do.

Always tip, an average tip can range $100-$200 per club. If you have a good Host they will get you faster entry, better tables, girls, and take all the worries out of your trip.

Ask what time to arrive and try to be there on time. Sometimes clubs do sell out and it sucks having to tell people “I told you so”.

Don’t: Don’t ever prepay someone you don’t know! Don’t worry about having everything setup before you come out. Many people change their plans day of or book a club within hours of opening. Don’t shop around different clubs and Host thinking your gonna get some crazy better deal. Most Hosts know each other and we also talk. If your thinking of another club just let us know, you don’t have to make up some huge lie and give us the run around.

I hope this information will be useful in planning your next trip. And I would love to help you with any questions you may have so that you can have the most enjoyable stay here in Las Vegas!

And be sure to contact Johnny next time you are in Las Vegas for any and all day and nightclub bookings you have and be sure to tell him I sent you!
