Best Vegas Hotels for Chiefs @ Raiders Games
Mandalay Bay is the premier venue for Raiders games, as the stadium is just across the pedestrian bridge. It is a nice hotel with plenty to do, great food, and is one of our favorite hotels on the strip, especially considering it’s the closest to the stadium.
That said, Vegas is easy enough to get around, so there are plenty of options. Luxor and Excalibur each have access to a monorail that will take them directly to Mandalay Bay for free. MGM Grand, New York New York, The Flamingo, Park MGM, and the city center resorts (Aria, The Cosmopolitan, & Vdara) are also good options.
Any of the major hotels (Wynn, Encore, Venetian, Palazzo, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Harrah’s, Park MGM, or any of the other strip hotels all should have events and betting options for all NFL fans. All that is to say, if you’re in Vegas on a football Sunday, there will be plenty to do!
If you want a less expensive option, downtown Vegas is planning to have some shuttle services and tailgating, so there are less expensive options. The food is good and often the tables have better odds.
Kansas City to Las Vegas Flight Deals
Spirit and Southwest Airlines offer low-cost, direct flights to Las Vegas (LAS) from Kansas City. Southwest is our favorite local airline and offers two free checked bags, which is perfect to ensure you can take all your gear to and from the game. Other airline options with stops include American, Delta, and United Airlines.
We will provide flight options as the schedule becomes available, so be sure to join our newsletter and follow us on twitter for the best deals to and from Kansas City to Las Vegas.
