Hey there, long time no post! We just bought a house so things have been tight. But, I'm going to Vegas with my mom and BFF in October and have a room at the Palazzo booked with my IHG reward points. I got an offer from Excalibur today which is 2 free nights with $100 freeplay and $50 resort credit. I'm thinking of booking that too, just to check in and get the extras. Last trip we stayed there 1 night and they did not charge a resort fee. Do they even notice if nobody is sleeping there? I guess we could use it as a resting point when we get down to that end of the strip!
