Suggested Hotels for Diva Las Vegas 2018

(Updated March 5, 2018)

We make hotel suggestions primarily for those who are unfamiliar with Las Vegas hotels, those unsure of which hotels are TG-friendly, and those wishing to stay in the immediate proximity of other DLV attendees.

The hotel suggestions for DLV 2018 are just that, suggestions. There's no requirement that you stay in our suggested hotels.

Although all have been known to provide good service and to treat members of our group the same as all other guests, there are no guarantees of attitude or satisfaction.

In the event that none of the suggestions on this page meet your needs, please check out the Casino-Hotel and Non-gaming Hotel sections on our Big List for other possibilities.

Please consider when selecting your hotel:

Be sure to be aware of your "total cost of ownership" of your hotel room when selecting a hotel for Diva Las Vegas! There are known, not so well known, and consequential costs in addition to the posted nightly rates.

  • Please do not be "penny-wise and pound-foolish" if selecting a lower-priced hotel which is located far away from where the majority of the DLV attendees are staying. This is of particular importance if you will be needing transportation to DLV activities. The additional transportation costs (taxi, etc.) can easily negate the savings of staying in a bottom-dollar hotel.

  • When comparing rates, please consider that most Las Vegas hotels, include a mandatory "Resort Fee" ranging from a few dollars per night, to several dollars per night. Be aware of all taxes, fees, incdental charges, etc., which add to the cost of your room.

  • Almost all downtown and Strip area hotels now charge for guest parking. This has been a recently-added fee. The parking fee is often waived for members of the hotel's players club who have attained a certain level.

    For Bally's, Flamingo, and Paris, those who have Total Rewards standing at the Platinum level or above have complimentary guest parking.

    One recently-added benefit is that veterans of US armed forces can obtain platinum status and a specially-marked players card by visiting any Total Rewards desk with documented proof of service and requesting such status and card.

  • Although our hotel suggestions are presented in good faith, there are no guarantees of satisfaction or comfort. Diva Las Vegas organizers and volunteers are not responsible for hotel services or lack of same, or for any actions of hotel staff or guests.

The following hotels are suggested for DLV 2018 attendees:

  • Flamingo (primary suggested hotel)
  • Bally's
  • Four Queens
  • Paris

Details on each of our hotel appears immediately below.

Booking special DLV rates at the Flamingo:

Please note: The deadline for booking DLV group rates at the Flamingo is March 15. This is a hard-stop cut-off.

The negotiated DLV rate is $55 per night for weekday nights covering the span from April 11 through April 25. This is a discount of 37% from the regular rates and 22% from currently-available (December 19) web special rates.

Please see note below regarding weekend rates!

To book your room using the special rates, please do one of the following:

  1. Phone 888-373-9855 (toll-free within US) and book your room using the code SFDIV8. Please note that the reservationist taking your call will not be aware of the nature of our group.

  2. Visit the URL https://aws.passkey.com/go/SFDIV8 and book your room on line.

Notes and caveats. Please read carefully!

  1. Quoted room rates do not include taxes and fees, particularly that pesky daily "resort fee" which is added daily to all rooms at all major Strip resorts. Please be aware of the "total cost of ownership" of your hotel room.

  2. Weekend room rates have been fluctuating wildly due to anticipated supply and demand. Due to this, it is possible that regular rates for the weekend nights may be lower than our negotiated weekend rates, which were set in November and are currently being reviewed. If you plan to stay for any of the adjoining weekend nights, please be sure to carefully compare the weekend rates available to the general public ( www.caesars.com) with the weekend rates available using the link above and book your room accordingly.

  3. If you are a member of Total Rewards, the player's club sponsored by Caesars and Harrah's casinos, please be sure to check to see if you have any "casino rate" or complimentary rooms available by logging in to www.caesars.com using your Total Rewards card number. Casino rate rooms are almost always lower than rates posted for the general public and may be lower than our negotiated rates.

Please let us know if you have any difficulty booking your room using the link or phone number posted above.

Flamingo: (primary suggested hotel)

We anticipate that the Flamingo will draw the largest contingent of DLV 2018 attendees. We suggest the Flamingo, primarily, for those who want to be among other DLVers and for those who wish to share rides.

The Flamingo is a very large long-standing midscale hotel-casino located right in the heart of the center Strip area. DLV attendees have used the Flamingo ever since 1998 and no issues have been reported.

The Flamingo is our strong suggestion for DLV 2018 attendees who wish to share rides to DLV activities with others.

As of this writing, the Flamingo is the least expensive of all major hotels in the Center Strip area.

On-site Diva Las Vegas event check-in (including name tag / holder distribution) will be available at the Flamingo during designated hours on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday of DLV week.

Bally's is being suggested this year for those who wish a "step up" from the lower-priced hotels without breaking the bank.

Bally's is a large long-standing upper-midscale hotel-casino located in the heart of the center Strip area at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road. DLV attendees have used Ballys many times over the years with no issues.

Bally's is located adjacent to the Paris and is within convenient walking distance to the Flamingo, both of which are suggested DLV hotels as well. This allows convenient ride sharing with those staying at Paris and Flamingo

Web site: Main Bally's web site


The Paris is a very large upscale hotel-casino located just south of the "Four Corners" Flamingo-Strip intersection.

The Paris was the first major Strip hotel to actively invite LGBT business.

The Paris is very nice, but not cheap! It also tends to be crowded, particularly on the weekends. Countless shops and eateries grace the property. The Eiffel Tower is a major attraction and offers a spectacular view of the Strip!

The Paris is located adjacent to Ballys and is within a fairly reasonable walking distance to the Flamingo, both of which are DLV 2018 suggested hotels. This allows convenient ride sharing with others staying at those two hotels.

One caveat: Although the Paris promises that their staff will be TG-friendly, this is a very large casino-hotel and tends to be crowded at times.

Four Queens:

The Four Queens is a large long-standing legacy downtown Las Vegas hotel casino.

Very attractive rates have been reported at the Four Queens for the DLV dates.

This particular suggestion is intended for those who wish to take advantage of the lower hotel rates in the downtown area and for those who specifically enjoy the downtown atmosphere.

The Four Queens is not recommended for those who will not be driving a vehicle and do not have pre-arranged rides to DLV activities.

As of this writing the Four Queens does NOT impose a Resort Fee. However, hotels have been known to adopt such fees at very short notice.
