Add to that $42 per person without taxes for two nights at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, $78 per person including taxes for one night at the Cable Mountain Lodge, and $166 per person including taxes for two nights at the Radisson Woodlands Hotel, and you're already spending $536 on airfare and accommodations alone.
