    Does anyone know, if you eat/drink from the mini bar, will those charges be considered part of your daily food and beverage limit?
    or is it retail?

    good, cuz we have a large daily food comp, and will probably snag a couple bottles and order some at lunch/dinner as well, for gifts.
    thank you

    Good question, and I like the answer too. Same with us. We have a large food comp and aren't foodies. I never would have thought of the mini-bar.

    I thought I would follow up, as I have returned from my trip.


    So upon our return home, I sent our host an email thanking her for the stay at the Bellagio, and asked should I expect to see any charges on my cc/exp comps. She replied with " only charges will be from the mini bar". Which I was upset/confused about. I replied back with, I would have assumed mini bar was f/b and we did not use 1/2 of our alloted amount. She replied with, "yes, mini bar is f/b", that's it not another word.

    So I am guessing no charges will accrue. But you might want to have it in writing, or ask upon check in to be safe.

    I'm a little confused. If she said that the only charges would be from the mini-bar....but mini bar is F&B....why would there be charges?

    As said often, RFB is no longer unlimited, unless you are at the upper levels. Generally, if RFB now has limits per day. Make sure you know what yours is at.

    In the past, rfl inlcuded minibar, with no real limits. Our kids were coming into town and staying at Paris on comp. We emptied our mini bar at Bellagio and wheeled it over to their room. They LOVED it.

    yes, but as was said before, RFB isn't unlimited anymore, so if you take a couple of $200 bottles, you may have an ugly bill at the end if your play doesn't warrant it.

    When I saw the title of this thread I thought of Ocean's 11: "Two words: mini-bar"!

    At our recent stay, we wanted to check on this so we stopped somewhere (I think it was the Concierge) and asked. They didn't have the answer so they called someone. We were asked if we booked our stay through a host and we said we had booked through a Marketing rep. So they asked who we were before giving an answer - and we were finally told yes, the mini-bar could be used against the food comp. But for anyone not booking through a host, I think I would double check before just assuming that it's OK.

    I had an offer on the MLife site that's gone now that included a ' 3 night stay in a suite and $100 per day in MLife resort credit,' but there was a little desclaimer on the bottom saying what that could and could not be used for. I specifically remember that 'dining' (with a couple of specific restaurants being exceptions) was allowed, but the mini-bar was specifically excluded.

    So I guess it can depend on the wording of the offer as well, F&B vs Resort Credit.

    I like a certain brand of single malt scotch. Is it typical that resorts with mini-bars won't let you bring outside purchases in?

    Though many hotels have a "rule" against outside beverages, never seen any that enforce it. Has no bearing on mini-bar. Bring your bottle in, with ZERO problem. Heck, you can even take a drink to the casino if you want.
