    I will be going to LV for about 16 nights in late May/early June for the WSOP, and would like to book a stay at CET properties. I am close to being Diamond (and will get there in another week), and if I look at my online calendar, I can get most of the nights in question comped at most of the properties. However, I cannot seem to book more than 5 consecutive nights at the calendar rates online, nor can I book separate stays unless they are three days apart from each other. FWIW, I already booked 9 comped nights (not consecutive) at Caesars during weekdays just in case.

    I am not opposed to changing hotels at some point during the trip, but I would like to minimize this if I can. What is the best way to get the best price for this long of a trip?

    I should also mention I have no offer codes for Vegas for this time...the price I am getting are all online calendar rates.

    You can book up to 5 nights on your own, then 2 days off, then rinse and repeat. My host has booked me consecutively for 8 nights but that's pretty rare. If if it not letting you book just 2 nights in between stays then I would call Total Rewards and have them do it for you over the phone. If you have comped offers from the Boyd properties you can stay at Gold Coast or Orleans for the two nights or check to see the rates at Tuscany. Also try downtown if you have to pay for a room.

    You can also PAY for 2 CET nights in between 2 CET comped five day stays but again, a host might have to set that up. Pick two weekday nights if you pay so that those nights are cheaper and use your five nights to cover weekend nights, which tend to be higher.

    I was in Vegas years ago for an entire month and with CET offers, Stations, Boyd and El Cortez thrown in, I never paid for a room my entire stay.

    You would need to get a host involved, but I think they'll make you stay off property for 48hrs every 5 days.

    I know you don't have to leave every 5 days...I stayed at Bally's for 12 straight nights last year. But none of it was comped then...it was like $30/night for the weekdays and $100/night for the weekends. And I don't remember how I set it up. But I've never gone through a host, nor do I think I would qualify for one.

    Also, I don't have any status with anyone except CET, though I do have about 400k MyVegas points I could use.

    True. I think you can stay consecutively in a hotel for up to 30 nights if you are willing to pay for it it. I think he is trying to maximize comped offers.

    I think you could do your 5 nights then use myvegas for 2 nights then book 5 more nights then I would use myvegas for another night and pay for 1 more before booking the rest of your trip

    The casinos are not stupid. They know that very few people have enough bankroll to last more than a few days before it is gone. Get your money and then move you out.

    1. A host can bridge the gap if you can get ahold of one and if he thinks you have the bank.

    2. You can call and see what kind of rate you can get for the gap nights using your TR #, and then after you stayed the first 5 nights, see if they'll comp the gap nights.

    3. If they're running a good publicly-available promo (some % off) for the gap dates, see what that price is for the same room type without logging in and see if it's better than what they'll give you in option 2 and book it without logging in. You'll get charged a resort fee for those nights.

    It sounds from the previous answers that I have managed to do something odd with the TR website. I booked 5 days comp at the Rio for June, Friday to Wednesday. Later on, I linked my wife's TR account to mine, then went back online and managed to book another 4 days, also comped, consecutive with the first booking, from Wednesday to Sunday. Although my wife's card is linked, it's my account I used to make both bookings. I have confirmations for both showing online but I'm worried now that they won't honour the booking when I show up. Has anyone done this before? Or should I just call them up and admit that this looks wrong and see what they say?

    Thanks
    Brian

    I think the worst that could happen is they'll make you pay some discounted rate for the last 4 nights.

    But if the website let you do it, you're probably good.

    If you can get the last 4 nights comped at some other chain, then the safe thing to do would be to call CET and make sure that both bookings are legit, you don't want to take the chance of having to pay something for those nights if you can get them free somewhere else.

    He would have to change hotels which is what he'd rather not do. MyVegas is MGM properties and he's comped at CET properties.

    I wouldn't mind changing hotels once or even twice during the trip, but changing four times sounds like way more trouble than its worth, especially considering that check-in times tend not to be very convenient when you are playing WSOP tournaments.
