LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Hundreds of thousands of people are visiting Las Vegas for the New Year’s celebration and all of them need a place to stay. Here’s a look at what people are paying to celebrate the new year along the Las Vegas Strip and in downtown Las Vegas at the Fremont Street Experience.
Most of the major hotels in Las Vegas require at least a two-night stay over New Year’s Eve. For the prices in this story, we are using Friday, Dec. 30 through Sunday, Jan. 1.
As of Dec. 29, the most expensive cheap room on the Strip is at Wynn and Encore. Its cheapest room is going for an average of $989 a night plus fees. The cheapest rooms on the Strip are at Excalibur for $248 a night.

Celebrations along the Las Vegas Strip are free and open to the public, but be ready to walk a lot and plan ahead for parking.
