    I have booked a stay at MB with $150 FP/$75 FB. They give us the best offers because we played there the most. However, I'm going solo and would like to stay someplace my GF wouldn't want to stay. Any chance I could call Luxor/MC/NYNY and get the same deal as MB offered? All I get from them are the corporate offers, 3 nights with only $15 FB. Should I mention my offer from MB and see if they'll match it?

    MB is usually considered higher in the pecking order of MGM properties than the other 3 you mentioned.
    Call each property,ask for a host and see what they offer.
    You might be surprised.

    I think any one of those properties would match that offer. I tried it once with Luxor and the host immediately said he'd match whatever I had.

    With that said, none of those properties are better than MB.

    Yeah, I like MB, but I'd like to try a place where my GF wouldn't want to stay. It's a quick, strictly gambling trip, so it's no big concern if the hotel sucks.

    Do I need to talk to a host specifically, or is the VIP person who answers the phone ok?

    Also, would this piss off MB? We like their pool and would definitely like to go back, and they have the best offers.

    You'd need to talk to a host, not the VIP person. The VIP person is only going to give you the offers they have on the screen.

    What's your game? That might determine where you want to stay if it's a straight gambling trip.

    Craps and BJ mainly. I figure I can have a good time playing them anywhere.

    Those 3 properties have decent BJ. Although if you want a S17 game at MC, you have to play in the high limit room.

    I'd choose NYNY or MC over Luxor by a pretty wide margin.
