I used a host for the first time on my last trip to Bellagio. In my thread after Memorial Day I explained that I was offered an upfront comp of RFB 350/day for 3 nights and limo transport. Basically, my host was not wiping off the charges as the trip progressed and said he couldn't comp anymore. Some story about how I wasn't playing enough to justify the comps, then used a number he expected, which I was exceeding. Anyway, I let him know my displeasure in a professional way. I tried contacting another host at the B and let him know that I was wanting to use another host. I have not received a response, so I am thinking about trying out Aria this trip. I averaged $500/hand BJ for 12 hours over the 3 days. That is probably on the higher side of my average play. I am probably more of a $350-400 hand player over the long haul. A referral of straight-shooting, HONEST host would be appreciated. My MLIFE offers are okay, but I feel I can get much more upfront from a host than the corporate offer.
