I'm going to be in Las Vegas for a conference in late July that takes place at the Venetian, and I wanted to see what I could do to get the most bang for my buck out of the hotel... From googling, it looks like the Venetian and Palazzo both have a connection to Priority Club, but I'm not clear on what exactly it is. I don't have any PC status, although I do have Hilton Gold, but I'm not entirely clear on whether it would matter in this case. I thought this would be the best place to find someone to help untangle whatever the connection between PC and the Venetian property is, and whether there was anything I could potentially do, in the next month, to help ensure I get a good room. It sounds like Vegas hotels and upgrades and such are a different animal from basically anywhere else, so any suggestions are appreciated. Does booking at a conference rate damage my chances of successfully asking for an upgrade at checkin? In late July, is it more or less likely to be empty enough to expect generosity (mine isn't exactly a blockbuster conference, but I imagine there are others)? Thanks!
