If you're mainly interested in audio, then book as closely as possible to the Alexis Park hotel, although the San Remo is also a venue for other high-end audio products as well. No matter where you are, there will be shuttles to take you to the different places, especially the LVCC. You may want to consider the AmeriSuites which had a very good rate for CES. I don't know whether they still have availability, but the location is mid-way between LVCC and Alexis Park.
You're welcome! THE Show is completely unrelated to the Stereophile shows, which are oriented to the consumer. If you can attend THE Show, and presumably CES, maybe you should, recognizing these events are targeted mainly for people in the business. Most folks are cool with that, and there's a lot of great stuff to see, hear, and do.
Tips for the CES.......Start taking Echinacea a week before the show and continue until you are back home.....Folks from all over the world will be there and they bring their germs......Break in some walking shoes now.......Take every imaginable type of grease and oil for your entire body with you as it is dry there, enough to split lips in a day.......Buy a few gallons of water for your motel room as the water just sucks in Las Vegas.....Weather can be anywhere from snow to 65 degrees during the day and 30-50 at night so take sweaters and dress in layers........Treat any CDs you bring to play there with Nordost ECO 3 after you get there as it is so dry they come across as bright without the treatment.......Make sure you are at the St. Tropez for lunch every day as it is free and Misty River will be playing the lunches. Have heard them live and they are really sensational.....Other than that no great suggestions other than book a room soonest......Cheapest is likely the Motel 6 on Tropicana and Koval Lane..........Carrow's (sort of like Denny's) is right in front and have a new Cuban steakhouse there as well........Add a hairdryer, alarm clock, shampoo and Kleenex if you go to Motel 6.......Been doing the shows for about ten years now........
