    We can book now but who wants to pay those rates! Sign up for their rewards club and get emails. One year at the Riv I paid $29 a night because of their Club membership.

        The Rio is owned by Harrah's Entertainment.
        Harrah's Entertainment has the Total Rewards club membership, which is used at the Rio, Caesars Palace, Paris, Flamingo, Bally's, Harrah's, Imperial Palace and Planet Hollywood.

        Last year around Blackhat/Defcon time, the Total Rewards promo they offered me was three nights for $79.99 a night (Caesars) or free (Rio, Paris, Ballys) depending on which casino you chose to stay at. I ended up staying three nights for free at Paris during Blackhat time, so I could chill out with friends going to Blackhat.

          Is there any special rate for Defcon attendees? Do I ask the Rio for a Defcon rate? If I want to reserve a room do I contact the Rio directly or does Defcon provide a link?

          Thanks

            1) In past years, there has been a special rate.
            2) Yes, although that may not be available yet.
            3a) If you would like.
            3b) Yes, although that typically isn't available until mid-February to mid-March.

              Thank you VERY much. I will keep checking the Defcon website for a reservations link.

                I just booked five nights 8/3-8/7 for average $87 a night. I'm also a Harrah's rewards member.

                  Another option to save some $$$:

                  Gold Coast Casino (right across the street from the Rio) has rooms for less than $45/nt during Defcon. It might not be as nice as the Rio, but the Gold Coast has good reviews.

                  I just booked Aug 4th-7th for ~$160/including tax.

                  08/04/11 = $27.00
                  08/05/11 = $45.00
                  08/06/11 = $45.00
                  08/07/11 = $27.00

                    The rates at the Riv for Defcon were no deal. I always found cheaper through various online sources. I hope the Rio truly gives con goers a good rate.

                      On twitter the _defcon_ twitter account announced Rio rooms available at the Defcon rate. Details copied and pasted into the thread.

                      Closing this misleading thread. Eventually, it may be true that there are no more rooms available for Defcon at the Rio, but it is not the case at the time I post this.
