    Heading out in March with some family had a few questions for those that go to spas in Vegas.

    I have zero interest in a spa, but I have built up quite a few RCs that I'd like to pay for a trip for my brother's fiance. Before I try and call total rewards and get answers that end up not being true when getting to Vegas, I'd like to see if anyone else here has done something like this before.


    I am staying at Paris
    They are staying at Ballys


    1) Can you charge spa services from any CET casino to a room at any CET property? IE..Could she go to Caesars and charge it to her Bally's room?

    2) Does CET allow me to use say 20000 RCs and apply them to someone elses room?

    3) Assuming #1 is Yes, any suggestions on what spa I should suggest? Looking at under $200 excluding tip. I honestly have no idea what service she would even get. I'm assuming some sort of massage, but honestly that is just a guess. If the answer is No, then are Bally's or Paris Spa's worth it?



    If anyone else has suggestions on how I would go about doing this let me know. The key thing is that I do not have to be there when she gets there or leaves. There are good odds I won't either be up, or I will be watching basketball. I have no issue setting it up beforehand if that is needed. I do not have a host, so don't suggest having them deal with it.

    i may be wrong but i believe I read somewhere on the TR website that you can gift points to another persons account. So worst case senario you can just have the TR desk put the 2000 points on his account. I think you need to be at least platinum to do this.

    In the past I've been able to charge Spa services from one CET Resort to the CET Resort room I was staying in.
    But it's always a good idea to ask first and have your credit card and ID with you. I've never been to the Spa at Bally's.
    I have used the one at Paris and it's fine but small. The only Spa worth going to in that area would be Qua at Caesars.
    Qua is worth the experience. Go first thing in the morning and then back before closing. That way you def get your moneys worth.

    You can go to the check in desk at any time and have some of your points applied to another persons room. I did it at Bally's a few years ago for my daughter so I didn't have to be there when she checked out.

    Sybgal is correct!! She should be able to go to the spa and charge everything to her room (one CET prop to the other) then it's easy for you to stop by anytime and have your points applied to their room.

    Or you can go to the spa with her and charge everything to your room and apply points. You can apply them whenever during the stay, I always do it the night before checkout so I can checkout via tv in the morning with zero balance.

    I HIGHLY recommend Qua. Many of the other spas are very nice, I've been to most of them. But there's only one QUA and it's the best. Make sure she knows about the heated stone loungers in the first room with the hot tubs, those are awesome. They would be easy to miss, they just look like plain old rock loungers (and who wants to lay on a rock lounger?) but they are heated and beyond great.

    I also agree to go early morning. Later gets more crowded and I dislike it with more people there milling around and using MY facilities...LOL.

    Nice of you to do this, definately best-brother-in-law material!

    Zero problem charging spa, meals, drinks back to any CET hotel room.

    Then, you can use your points to pay down their bill.

    Caesars spa is wonderful. BUT - there is plenty of value in using the spa in the same hotel as your room so that you can go back to room to shower, change, etc.

    Yes cross property charging is allowed at any CET for hotel owned facilities (restos, pool, spa, showtickets, etc).

    If you don't want to charge or go with the person to the spa, you can always convert reward credits to a TR gift card, and give to the person.

    The major benefit if you go with the individual you wish to gift spa services to, you can apply your TR discount to services. As a diamond player I get 20% off spa services as long as I go to the Spa at the same time my wife is getting services.

    So $20 day pass for me, and she can then get an additional treatment.
    Qua can get busy on the weekends at the checkin desk with lots of people in line to use the workout and fitness area. Crowds can be pretty heavy between 9am and 11am.

    I tend to book closer to lunch time 12 noon to 2pm to avoid crows on weekends. Weekdays are wide open unless there is a convention being held at CP.

    Thanks all for the advice. Good to know they can charge to any room. I've always just paid for meals at the restaurant.

    This is not quite accurate. The most you can transfer to anyone at one time is $50, and I am not sure if you can do it more than twice per year.

    This may not be the best use of the points as the ratio of TR dollars to gift card dollars is 2:1. Additionally, with the TR gift card, you are paying taxes on top for goods, making this even less desirable.


    If you want to treat her, you could go there to check her in and pay for it with the TR card. Additionally, many of the TR spas gift additional discounts for being a card member, the higher the card status, the higher the percentage of discount.

    The other option is have her charge the services to the room and then apply your TR points.
