    I am curious if you can charge any food at a property to your room, or just sit-downs. I am staying at MB in July and am wondering if more of the quick-serve/food court type options, or even starbucks at the hotel, can be charged to room? I am not going to be gambling to a level where it will get comped, but I just wonder if my credit card will give me 5% cash back since I assume it all bills under the hotel so its travel.... And while I won't get anything taken off, it is my understanding I can use express comps at the end of my stay by stopping at the mlife desk and asking them to apply my balance to my room bill? Thanks!

    When you check in they will tell you where you can use your food/beverage/resort credits, but specifically for your question: no, you can't use it at the food court or at places like Starbucks.

    At food court places you typically cannot charge to the room but I've charged Starbucks to my room when stayed at NYNY. Just ask when getting to the cashier.

    I haven't found many places at MGM properties that I can't charge back to the room. Did it once at Tiffany at the Bellagio, and that worked out really well for my tier credits (which, apparently, weren't supposed to apply to the purchase, but they ended up getting added) ... never hurts to ask!

    I was told by the MLife desk at the Mirage that I could charge Starbucks to my room in order to use my resort credit to pay for it. I never did get around to doing it though.

    Don't forget you can also charge to your room from the other Mlife resorts! So if you go to a buffet/restaurant/starbucks at another Mlife property charge it to your room to use earn tier credits, etc. Just say you want to do a room charge, they usually ask where/room, and then they will bring you a receipt to sign that has boxes to check for the resort you're staying at and a place to write your name and room number and sign!

    Being able to eat at any (associated) property and charge to the room is a great perk because it doesn't really limit you and still allows the potential to have it removed from the bill at the end of the trip.

    Now places like PH mall and Caesars mall can NOT be charged to your CET room, but the Starbucks within the casino can. There may be issues if the Starbucks is not associated with a casino.

    Supposedly they are working to get the new stores within Linq to allow charges to the room.

    Echoing those who have said that MGM props pretty much let you charge anything from any of their food/kiosk type places back to your room.

    When I stay at The Mirage this is helpful since they don't have a food court type place there. So if I am down on the southside and want a slice from NYNY or a quick burger then I can just charge it to my Mirage room.
