New hotel options for Las Vegas for Cup
Exciting array of Las Vegas resorts added to Continental Cup accommodations arsenal
New listings necessary as curling fans lock up available rooms at the host hotel
LAS VEGAS – Five exciting resorts in Las Vegas are now offering preferred rates to the thousands of curling fans still planning to attend the historic 2014 World Financial Group Continental Cup of Curling at the Orleans Arena January 16-19. The properties were added in the wake of no current hotel vacancy at The Orleans Hotel and Casino.
“We’re thrilled that curling fans are so excited about attending the WFG Continental Cup in Las Vegas that they have filled our host hotel months in advance,” said Jon Killoran, event co-manager. “But we’re even more excited to continue to offer fans, who have not booked yet, a wide range of choices for nearby hotels, many of which will have free bus shuttle service to the arena.”
Fans can book exclusive hotel and event packages at The Gold Coast Hotel and Casino, located near The Orleans. Nearby Las Vegas Strip resorts Bally’s Las Vegas, Caesars Palace and The New Tropicana Las Vegas A Double Tree by Hilton have also reserved blocks of rooms for fans, as well as The Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino, located next door to the Gold Coast just west of the Strip.
