Booking a stay for the 2024 World Series of Poker? There are so many options, from a hotel stay, to AirBnB options, houseshares with fellow players or even an extended break at one of the official WSOP venues. But which choice is right for you? From budgets to best friends, through location and luxury, we’ll help you establish your preference.


Staying at either the Horseshoe or Paris casino’s hotel towers in Las Vegas is expensive but helps to cut travel costs and saves you plenty of time over the course of your stay. This can boost rest and recuperation elements of your trip and allow you to bring your ‘A Game’ to the felt whenever you’re playing in a WSOP Event.


Paris Resort

Both the Horseshoe and Paris are easily accessible to walk from the cardroom but if you prefer a more scenic route, then you can take the Monorail, which has a stop directly at Paris. The Paris Las Vegas selection of rooms are all 4-star, with free parking, air conditioning throughout and breakfast, with the added benefit of an outdoor pool, a hot tub and fitness center. Prices range from $150 and up, so it isn’t the cheapest option, but you couldn’t be closer to the action.


Horseshoe Resort in Las Vegas

The Horseshoe costs a little more, but with similar facilities including the swimming pool and fitness center, there are five restaurants within the property and your room also comes with a desk – handy for making sure you keep track of your money! Talking of currency, you’ll be looking at spending around $1,650 for a week’s stay at the Horseshoe around the time of the first week of this year’s WSOP Main Event. Of course, that doesn’t include you making it into the money and towards the $10m+ top prize… but if that happens, extending your stay at the Horseshoe could be a very nice problem to have!

Hotels on the Strip

If you want to stay somewhere other than where you’ll be playing your poker, there is huge variety. You may have to commute a short distance or catch the Monorail to the cardroom you’re at that day, but you could also be right in the middle of the Las Vegas nightlife that makes your trip so memorable.

Caesars Palace

Of course, nightlife might be good or bad for your poker game, but thankfully, the sheer volume of different hotels to stay at could help you make sensible choices both in terms of budgeting and entertainment facilities. Caesars Palace is a popular destination, and you can book a one night stay for around $125. By comparison, however, The Venetian is a lot cheaper and could cost around half of what you’ll pay at ‘The Palace’.

The Bellagio and MGM Grand

Other venues such as The Bellagio (circa $325) or the MGM Grand ($275) will likely be something of a treat purchase, but looking around can be extremely beneficial and its worth checking right up until the last minute if you want to save money, shopping around for the very best price, as room costs vary wildly, especially during the World Series.

Hosting a Houseshare

Of course, you don’t have to stay at a hotel at all during your trio to Vegas and the World Series of Poker. If you’ve prepared, then you can organize an AirBnB rental beforehand, and you’ll have much more space. Plus, if the house or apartment is yours rather than a hotel, then there is an element of privacy when you’re arriving back from the cardroom in the early hours of the morning.

Houseshares are another good idea if you’re traveling to Sin City with friends for the Main Event or perhaps a week at another time during the series. You can choose where you reside during your time at the WSOP, be it on the Strip, off-strip, or an Uber trip away from either Horseshoe of Paris.

From staying in the best hotels to heading to a budget version or hiring a houseshare option a little further from the well-trodden path, how you choose to stay in Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker is up to you. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you plan with a view to it helping you play your very best at the felt, and you could be celebrating winning a gold bracelet at the end of your trip.
