Here’s the scenario: You come in on a 3 night comp for a standard room set up by your host. At check-in, the person at the desk offers you a complimentary upgrade (say, from a standard room at Mirage to a Tower room). Does this upgrade affect the play required to pay off your comped room before earning F&B comps? Does your answer change if you accept an upgrade for a fee (say, $50/night for an upgrade to a Penthouse suite)? Would you just have to pay off the $50 with your play or the entire comp value difference between a standard room and penthouse suite? I’m asking, because I’ve been in the latter situation before where I upgraded at Mirage to a penthouse suite for $50 per night when having a comped standard room booked through my host. I typically wouldn’t be able to cover a suite comp based on my play ($150 BJ at the time), but would be able to cover an additional $150 (3 nights at $50 per for the upgrade). I was comped my entire bill at check-out (limited f&b), so I figured that they included only the extra $50 upgrade charge when considering the comps to give me (otherwise, I would have guessed that I would still have a portion of my bill to pay). However, I recently read a comment on another topic that may have implied that you would need to play enough to cover the entire comp value of the room upgrade at check-in as if you came in on a comp in the upgraded room, regardless of what the hotel actually charged you. Although I may be confusing people who are given a suite that is booked but not promised versus an upgrade at check-in. Thanks for straightening me out.
