Isn't it always at the Orleans?
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

I have been to Magic Live both a South Point and Orleans , I hope they do not use Orleans Again as the convention hotel

As most of the Top Hotel’s gave up charging a Resort Fee 2-3 Years ago

Orleans Still Charges an resort fee of $6.00 which includes those expensive Vegas essentials of 10 Mins of Internet Access and use of the Fitness Centre, all which you are NOT going to use if attending a convention

This Year I noticed that SAM Convention picked a Hotel that does not have a Resort Fee and hope that Magic Magazine consider avoiding this and other Rip Off Hotels

I so agree with Jack although the Orleons Hotel has good facilities for a convention "Resort Fees" Please
Just shows how old and out of date this Hotel is.
They also charge for internet access in your room most Hotels include this. and they do not include this in the
Resort Fee
So please Magic Live choose some where different this time

I don't think anyone is saying the Orleans is bad
It's the "Resort" fee of $6.00 per day that people
Object to especially when attending a convention

They have just confirmed that the Orleans will be the hotel once again. Rates are $35 per night and with taxes and resort fee it comes out at $45.20. Still very reasonable.

Still a really good deal if you want to arrive a few days early. Nights in hotels usually go to around $120.

I'll be going!

Not quite true in Vegas regarding hotels offering free internet. Some do last I knew All the MGM properties charged at least 12.00 for internet some charge less. some more. Some are free but as I said others are not.

A couple of things. I don't like the idea of a resort fee...I'd rather they just say that the room is x dollars per night. It's kind of like buying a new car and at the last second the salesman asks if you want the engine as well. That being said, I don't think that the price of the hotel is that bad...just wish they'd be upfront about what it really costs to stay there. This will be my second MagicLive and I'm really looking forward to it. In 2011, it was the first time I'd ever been to a large convention and it was just amazing...it truly got me excited about magic again. The dealer's room was incredible...there were items there at all price points and I know that I certainly helped the economy of that room! The lectures and informal gatherings were amazing as well. I really felt that it was an excellent investment overall!
Just adding my 3 cents worth because anybody can add their 2 cents worth...
