Las Vegas Hotel Prices Remain High For Mayweather-McGregor Fight Night

It has been a little more than a week since the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight was announced for August 26, 2017. Hotel prices on the Las Vegas Strip immediately skyrocketed. Rates seem to have settled down in the past few days.

Below is a list of prices one can expect to pay for a room on the weekend of the fight. Some tourists looking to go to Las Vegas that weekend are speculating that they will be able to get tickets as they have not gone on sale yet. Others are just looking to go to a fight party, make a bet, and be a part of the atmosphere.

Most Las Vegas Strip hotels require a two-night stay on that weekend. Guests will either need to stay on the Friday or Sunday, in addition to the Saturday night of the fight. Some hotels are not offering Saturday check-in at all.
