    OK, I am going to sound like a newbie because I haven't had to do this in decades. We are staying at Suncoast and the host there comped us a room and for food, said charge it to the room and we'll see what we can cover. OK fine.

    We are checking out before there is a host on duty and our host is off the day we leave. What do I do? Wait until I get home and call/email the host to get the charges removed? He'll do it automatically?

    Our food at MSS is a full comp, so I don't deal with this.

    There always is a host on duty to review your bill, even when yours is off the property. If you check out and pay the full bill, charging it all to the credit card, I doubt there is much they could do afterwards. I've asked the host on duty to review my play and adjust the bill before checkout.

    By the way, for those who travel on expenses. Ask the front desk for a printed copy of your hotel bill first. Then go see a host to see what they can comp.

    Just sayin....

    Talk to your host or the host on duty the night before you check out.

    My home casino is Main Street and there is a host on duty only between 9 AM and midnight and the player's club is only staffed until ~1 AM. At MSS, there is nobody around to take care of anything after midnight or 1 AM.

    OK, so I find a host the night before and we work out the bill, what about the early breakfast the morning of departure? Yes, I could pay with points, but screw that I know they'll get enough coin-in from me.

    I don't have much experience here, but just don't think it'd be wise to wait till you get home and work thru him "after the fact" so to speak.

    I am sure by then they could tell if they were going to comp your meals and could authorize an amount for breakfast.

    When you check out, you can ask the person behind the desk to have your play reviewed. They will get on the phone and call a host, and your play will be reviewed. This is what I did at about 5:30AM at the Gold Coast a couple of trips ago.

    Last trip, I just spoke to the host the night before checkout.

    A host who knows you well can and will go ahead and reverse CC charges after you depart if they want to pick up food and bev you have paid for. Since this is not the case here, I would deal with it the night before rather than rely on the host on duty.

    I would say each host is different.
    Our host is off the day we usually left.
    As a result, I e-mail him when I get home to ask what we owe and he replies "You owe nothing. See you next trip. " :beer:

    My only two cents is to try to get as much comped before you leave. Nothing wrong with talking with your host the night before, and then asking to have your breakfast reviewed by a different host the morning you depart. Better IMO than waiting until after-the-fact.

    I never "check out" of rooms any more, I just walk out.

    My host knows I walk out and she reviews and removes when she comes in, as she usually is not on duty when I leave.

    Tell your host in advance that this is your plan, to just walk out, and to please review your account when he/she gets in.

    I also never check out. Emailed the host and he got back to me with "relax and have a good time, I'll take of it".

    When we check out at Green Valley Ranch they just say we'll check with you're host when she is working, and don't pay anything at checkout
