    Trips to Las Vegas:

    Hi there
    I have been visiting Las Vegas for many years now and my guess is I have visited this great City for almost 50x now. I am an overseas visitor/Gambler and when I visit Las Vegas I usually stay 2-3 weeks, sometimes even longer. Needless to say, I gotta take good care of my gambling Budget and make sure not to go broke within the first days. That's why I usually Play off-Strip and my game is quarter denom videopoker. I am concentrated on Multiplier days, promotions, matchplays, extra offers etc. On the Weekends I also Play live poker on the Strip in one of the Major rooms, playing 1-3 no Limit.
    I have been a very loyal customer of the Tuscany and enjoy this Casino but recently they have tightened up considerably. They cut the Multipliers from 10x down to 7x, on vp, and now it's only 6x. But not only that, they also raised the Prices in the coffee shop and a full meal at the Gourmet Restaurant (Tuscany Gardens) for 2 costs about 150. It's an ok Price because Service is great and Food is great too. What I just don't get is how come they jacked up the Resort fee to a degree that the rooms are not actually affordable any longer. If you stay on the ground Level or the 2nd floor only, then you can hear the People Walking around above you and this is a bit annoying. I still like the Tuscany and the pool side is really fantastic. The new Cafe Bodega coffee place is great and I enjoy the Coffee Shop at nights after my gaming sessions.

    Anybody else there with similar experiences? I would like to share and also discuss other locals Casinos. For instance, Suncoast, Sam's Town, Sunset Station.

    Many thanks and best regards from Switzerland

    We have been staying at Tuscany for at least part of our last few trips. The recent changes have put us off slightly, and we are trying a few new places for our next trip. The increase in the resort fee is a joke. They didn't even change any of the "perks" included in the fee.

    We often spend time at Orleans and Gold Coast and will be staying at both of these properties next trip. We find them good for our needs and like the senior benefit days when we can get random multipliers on our play. We don't play much and rarely get free rooms, but I did manage to get a couple of free nights at Gold Coast this time.

    I haven't stayed at any of the places you mention yet, so I'm sorry I can't help you with that. I'm sure other board members can chime in with their experiences.

    What have they put the resort fee up to? I have stayed here twice and have found it a great place, seems a shame if they are tightening up

    I divorced the Tuscany recently because they got rid of their single FP bonus. And I believe their triple play is not eligible for bonus points. Sams has 9/6 Jacks, its no Tuscany. But it has a decent pool area. Fitness center is a small limited room. The have a Dunkin donuts, movie theater. If your a senior 55 they have special days.

    They increased it to $24 plus tax and didn't change any of the perks. We actually got Platinum for less than Tuscany wanted for part of our next trip. Managed to get in there before they introduced a $15 fee.
