This really is a big shift for us. We are going to spend our entire April (10-15) trip at the Suncoast. We have been staying at MSS for about the last 14 years, but it seems to be getting a little stale and we need a change. I'm not sure how this will turn out, but we are going to try it. Suncoast is kind of isolated, the only other casino around is Rampart, but in reality, we only end up going to Four Queens anyway when we stay downtown. When we lived in Vegas, Suncoast was in our top 2 of casinos we liked. It is a Boyd property, so my points still add up on my B Connected card. They have a free shuttle to/from the airport and if the timing doesn't work, there is always the WAX bus for a buck each way. I don't want to schlep golf clubs, but I think we'll rent some at Angel Park which is across the street. We also like walking and the Angel Park walking path (5 miles, free) is next door to Suncoast. A host comped us the 5 nights up front with a golf course view room. My biggest concern is food. We don't go nuts on the free food we get with the Gold Card at downtown Boyd properties, but they don't have that option at Suncoast. The host said just charge everything to the room and "I should be able to take care of it". A couple of hundred in food bills isn't going to break us, it is just not what I'm used to. I have to admit flashing the Gold Card still makes me feel like a "big shot" downtown. No criticism needed if that sounds pompous, I'm just saying it did. Old Vegas veteran and the thought of staying at a different place has me excited, maybe something I haven't been feeling the last few trips. Unless I stumble across Turtleman at Suncoast, I guess I won't bump into many VMBers. However, just in case, at SC my favorite VP machine is next to the crap tables, left side of the bar.
