    Welcome to the Riviera-- where room availability it always in a state of flux... then again, maybe hey are just flux-ing around with their schedule. ;-)


    The riviera now shows Thursday is AVAILABLE, and for $59

    I already had reservations for fri-sat in the "defcon" group.
    When I called back tonight, I stated I wanted the room for the Thursday and sunday now that it is available.


    They charged me $95.00 (instead of $59 listed) and stated that is because It keeps me in the "defcon contract".

    Didn't need to give CC info or anything..or new confirmation # which is opposite of Last time I called (to reserve the sunday) they told me I would have to check out and check back in.. today that is not the case apparently. Hotels confuse me.
    what a racket.


    Either way, Thursday seems available.

      So if you are not under the defcon contract, then what? Does a cut of the room cost go to the conference rooms or ???

        The way she put it to me was, if I wasn't under the "defcon contract" I would have got the room for $59.00 heh
        So I asked how could the rooms be open, for the defcon block if they were already sold. She stated "they just opened up more of them"

        So I paid the $95.00 for thursday, and sunday. (and I asked why I was told the sunday would be $164 last month when I called).

        "that was the price without the defcon contract in june, now its $59 or $95"

        I assume thats how large casinos probably make there money, raise the price and give what looks to be discounts at times they can gauge... and reel in reservations cheap to empty rooms when it gets to close to timeslots left open.


        Maybe the extra 35 bucks goes towards damage control, if you are part of defcon. ;p
        If you aren't part of defcon, they give you an extra bar of soap and sympathy.

            Then again, maybe math will help you find where the difference in cost exists...

            One of the things with the Defcon Rate is automatic assignment of Deluxe Room (depending on availability at time of check-in.)

            When you visit their room registration online, you should see the quoted room rate is for their "standard room."

            Scroll down further, ad you should find a pull-down menu that offers:
            Superior room +$20/night and Deluxe Room +$40/night.

            So, if you actually get a Deluxe Room using the public rate for thursday, then you are actually paying $59 + $40 = $99 for 2 people plus tax. Add more than 2 people and it may cost more.

            Defcon Rate is $95/night but if you have more than 2 people (legitimate listing) then there is an additional $20 charge.

            For either, there is a 9% tax.

            Base cost for public weekend rate (friday, or saturday) varies from $99 to $159. Add to these the $20 (for superior room) or $40 (for Deluxe room) and an additional cost savings under the Defcon Rate can be found for our weekend costs.

            It appears as though there actually is a significant cost savings for people that register for the weekend and actually get a Deluxe Room, and they can get a marginal savings if they have a deluxe room for to $59 base public rate + $40 for deluxe.

              Now the Riv's website is showing $54 a night (Standard) for Thursday, Sunday, and Monday. Superior is +10/night, while Deluxe is +20/night. https://safe.rivierahotel.com/cgi-bi...60):;RNETSP3;?

              At this point I don't think it's worth it to try to re-negotiate my Sunday stay for the $20 in savings.

                I just loaded this page now, verified no caching, and it stil shows $59 for Thursday, August 2nd with a +$20 for superior and +$40 for Deluxe in the pull-down menu for room selection and the same price for Sunday, August 5th.

                Any 3rd party want to check now and report what you see?

                    Thanks man, and now I do too.

                    Looks like their rates are still in a flux-- or they are fluxing around with rates.

                          The link JJR posted is +$20

                          The link through website, and one cited originally is $40

                          That is probably the difference.
                          Why the two links have different prices..I'm to tired to even figure out.

                          Which room i'll end up with when i get there is up in the air at this point.. heh
