    tired out rooms and scuzzy pool area

    service was quite decent all in all and was given recognition as RA, it went much as others posted here said it would, you got a room upgrade, USD 100 for mini-bar (not per day but the whole stay which was weak), access to modest VIP rooms (in both the Palazzo and Venetian), early check-in, late check out, fruit + water and I think a movie

    they got my business because I need the nights to maintain RA, certainly not because I thought it was the best value in town + there was a 5000 point bonus for stay

    loyalty programs work both ways: for and against :eek:

    would never stay there again

    What was your upgrade as an RA? I stayed there last year and they put us in one of the 1100SQ foot + suites. I understand this is a typical RA upgrade.

    My biggest issue was the heavy smoke smell in the casino, this place has a ton of UK folks these days.

    it was supposedly a two class upgrade that was a huge suite with a couple steps down to desk area / lounge area and huge bath that I liked but otherwise the room was completely without any soul, just a big barn of a room.

    you can be sure that the hotel is chock full of package tourists and I was surprised that gamblers could still smoke in different casinos, I have not visited there in many years.
