I know people seem to get frustrated with these types of questions..so please bear with me! I've never been to a hotel that holds money on a CC before, and am trying to avoid it if at all possible as I have a very low limit on my CC. I am planning to pay for the hotel and resort fees in cash. Can I do this at check-in (will definitely not be getting anything comped at check-out), to avoid a hold on the credit card? I am staying at the MGM for 10 nights. If I do not want to charge to my room (paying for everything in cash as I go), will they have a problem with eliminating the hold? Even holding on a debit card would put a dent into my spending money for the trip. Also, I want to order a room service breakfast once during the trip. Can I pay for this with cash as well, or do I absolutely require a CC for this? PS: I know some will say "call the hotel and find out for yourself" and I did, but only got the generic $300/stay hold answer, so am looking for personal experiences with this, and the degree of flexibility the resort has with the holds. Thanks!
