Westgate Sold Out: overflow hotels available.

Our room block at the Westgate is sold out.

All the rooms that the Westgate was holding for our group have been sold. We have arranged chess rates at nearby hotels.

UPDATE May 18 2022

The Sahara has sold out of our overflow block. They still have a few rooms at non-chess rates. BOOK

Circus Circus and the non-strip hotels are still honoring our rate but today is the official cutoff date. The non-strip hotels are still offering reasonably priced rooms even without the chess rate.

We have reserved overflow rooms at the following hotels:

The iconic Sahara Hotel & Casino is walking distance for some, and only one stop away on the Las Vegas Monorail. Room rates are $69 weekdays and $209 Friday & Saturday. A 5 day monorail pass is $43. Players who bring the monorail receipt and Sahara reservation receipt to chess control will receive a 50% rebate on the monorail pass.

Circus Circus is offering Chess Players a fantastic rate or $32 weekdays and $105 Friday & Saturday. They are about a mile walk door-to-door from the Westgate. Parking is free at Westgate and Circus Circus; ride share is also convenient. BOOK NOW!

For those who prefer a non-smoking, non-casino hotel and don’t mind a short drive, Hampton Inn Tropicana is offering a $106 room rate with no resort fees. Complimentary breakfast, free parking and free WIFI might make up the cost of a rental car. BOOK NOW!

The Rio All Suites Hotel & Casino is also offering a discount to Chess Players. Staying at the Rio would require a car or ride share. The Rio has been the site of past and future tournaments by Vegas Chess Festivals. BOOK NOW!

All rates quoted are exclusive of Hotel Tax and Resort Fees.

  1. Apologies for the late question, are spectators welcome and are there any vendors/stalls? Thank you in advance.

  2. You can still book rooms at the Westgate online at https://www.westgateresorts.com/hotels/nevada/las-vegas/westgate-las-vegas-resort-casino/ but at a higher rate. The lowest rate they have seems to be the Memorial Day Wow Sale:

    I booked a room and it was about $200/night. No rooms are available for 6/9.

  3. Hello there!

    I tried booking a room with both Sahara and Circus Circus, but both links above did not allow me to book a room for June 7th through the 13th.

    Are the chess rates already sold out for those hotels as well? Thank you for your time!

    • Both hotels set up the link incorrectly and are in the process of adding the day before and the day after. You can make the reservation starting the 8th and send an email to vegaschess@gmail.com and we will get them to add Tuesday.

      We apologize for the inconvenience.


      • How did you made the reservation at Westgate? There is no link. and what is the chess group code?
