    Yeah... sad face because it's one of those dilemmas. A work-related week for the ServiceNow conference next year, with paid-for air and lodging, in Vegas... but the glass-half-empty kind of guy says "man I wish that hotel was part of one of my programs.... " :)

    And even though I could probably switch the stay to the Venetian/Palazzo and get some IHG points, I don't think they're in the same caliber as the Aria anymore. Not to mention the conference itself is in the hotel.

    I'll take this over the points--> paid-for air and lodging
    Although it is a bad feeling looking at your accounts after the trip and not seeing any increase. :(

    Alas, if I could get away with that, plus points, I'd be happy. :)

    Make sure you get a players card if you do any gaming at least.

    I'm in Vegas all the time, so me and the MGM properties are not strangers in the least. :)

    If you do FourSquare plus TopGuest, you get rack up the MLife Points while going from Casino to Casino. If you open a new MLife account, there's usually a redemption special too so you might be able to earn enough for some show tickets.

    Business travelers are used to both, paid-for air and lodging and points.:)

    the Trop is getting a doubletree branding.. still won't compete with Aria.. but potentially good for a 1 night stay on the ends in the future
