    Wait till you're 21?

    Have a parent (or an older relative/friend) make the reservation for you?

    Get in contact with someone at NAMBLA to see if they'd be willing to split a hotel room with you.

    Really, I'm sure I've made hotel reservations before I turned 21. At least 2 times that I can think of.

    Maybe vegas is different, the whole gambling thing, I dunno.

    How do they KNOW you're under 21? hell, lie. No one checks ID when you check in.

    A few questions (you didn't say what you've already tried)

    Have you called hotels and specifically asked, and not just going on anecdotes?

    Did you tell them you're coming out for CES?

    Are going as part of a business group or through a professional organization? They may be able to help you make reservations. Or, just share a room with someone who is 21+.

    Can any of your family members reserve the room for you? Check with the hotel and see if that will work. How about a friend or business associate who is older than 21?

    Does Las Vegas have Youth Hostels?

    Maybe the problem is that you're not of legal GAMBLING age. Have you tried a hotel/motel without a casino?
