    That does bring the open floor plan concept to a whole new level.

    Has there been any others still out there looking at/for lodging arrangements? What have you found? is it best to wait till prices drop? Or will the lodging just increase?

    I have not booked yet, hoping prices will go down, I would prefer to stay where the class is which is Planet Hollywood but that's one of the more expensive hotels that weekend. However it seems that since I started looking at hotels about a month ago prices are slowly dropping. If all else fails I will pay the going rate but I am going to give it until mid/late December before I lock anything down. That being said, if you book a hotel and see something cheaper you can always cancel and rebook. Just make sure you don't get one of those advance rates that are cheap but don't let you cancel without a penalty.

    My husband and I are signed up for February and are staying at Harrah's. It's a few hotels down from the class, but it seemed the closer you got toward the MGM, the higher the rates. I belong to the Harrah's/Ceasar's Total Rewards club thingie and got a really good rate. Without logging in as a member, I checked Harrah's rates and right now, the lowest is $94/night for a king size bed. If anyone stays at Harrah's or some of the other casinos on that side of the strip (Harrah's, Paris, Bally's, etc), you can take the monorail to class. It runs and stops behind Harrah's, Flamingo, Ballys/Paris, and MGM Grand. You can go to lvmonorail.com to view the map and prebuy tickets. A two day unlimited pass is $22 - probably cheaper than a cab. The monorail runs from 07AM to 3 AM weekends.

    The folks in Vegas must have a good idea of how awesome the LHBA class is. The last class I thought about attending was at Harrah's and the prices at Harrah's were higher, and now that its at Planet Hollywood, Harrah's is cheap and Planet Hollywood is expensive. Regardless it sounds like it is worth it and I can't wait! I have been lurking for almost a year now and have slowly been paying down debt to get ready to live the life I want to live. Can't wait to meet everyone at class!

    I can't wait. I am signed up and have my flight/hotel accommodations covered. I've been planning and wanting to take this class for years. When I first became interested in building Skip was still teaching the class at his home and you could camp out. While I am not a fan of Vegas I will deal with it to attend this class. Looking forward to meeting everyone who is coming. See you in February!

    Eric, you're a smart man. Waiting all these years to take the class will save you all the extra effort of using lifting poles.




    If you don't know what I am talking about, ask when you get to class.




    Welcome aboard...... finally.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    When I went, I waited til last minute to book my room and the price had come down quite a bit. I can't remember what site I booked thru but I think I did so about 3 days prior to my arrival.... That may not be the best idea but I doubt they'll run out of rooms either.
