We're looking at booking our hotel room soon as smartervegas discount codes are now available for the hotels we are looking at (MGM Grand, New York New York) and it asks for number of guests... We're looking at these hotels as they are closest to the Hard Rock Cafe on the strip where our reception is as we want our daughters grandparents to be able to get her to bed easily the night of the wedding and having a decent pool is a must too.
Our daughter will be 18months old and so we're assuming she'll still be in a cot/crib. We had planned to bring our own portable cot as we'll be spending some time in San Francisco after the wedding and we can take one as part of our luggage allowance on the plane (from Australia) for free. I would have thought I should just put two guests down as we only need a bed for the two of us? There isn't an option coming up where you can put two adults, one infant for example like when looking at airfares.
If we do that, are they going to try and add extra charges when we check in? Or do I go and check in on my own so they don't even see her?! If we decided not to bring a portable cot/crib has anyone rented one before at either of those hotels? I just wasn't sure how easy it would be to get one, not just in Vegas but in San Fran too?
Also we like the idea of possibly staying in a fancier room on our wedding night. Should I book this separately, or is it worth just asking when we check in if there is anything available and how much extra it would be for the one night? I don't think either of us would be upset if there wasn't anything available but it might be a shame if the only reason we didn't do it was because on the day it cost a lot more than if I had booked it in advance. We're trying to keep costs down as we have another ceremony in New Zealand in January to pay for too!
Any advice welcome
