    I know the BR has cut back on hosts and makes it more difficult to get to them these days so how exactly do you maneuver the comp thing there? We have been staying at Wynncore the last 5-6 years but then stayed at Bellagio our last trip and it's activated some offers from Mlife. We're doing the chartered trip to the BR for 3 nights and I'm not that familiar with the Express Comp thing. Do you still just charge everything to your room and then go see the Mlife desk or try to get in touch w/ a host at the end or do you charge meals right at the restaurant to your Express comps as you go or??? HELP!!! I've been away from MGM for along time and it used to be so easy....just charge to the room and call or go see the host on your way out.

    When we stayed at Bellagio a host contacted me so I had a POC and she said for that property just charge to the room and give her a call the day we leave.

    At the Beau, just charge everything that you have earned via express comps... pretty simple and easy.
    They will simply deduct express comps from the total that you have earned after each charge. You can use express comps everywhere at the Beau.
    Enjoy

    Dumb question I'm sure but I just haven't been to MGM properties since the roll out of Mlife so I'm clueless about these "express comps"....

    So, what do you do just tell the restaurant to use your express comps when you get your bill? And what do they do if you don't have enough credits to cover the meal, charge some to express comps and bill you the rest or can you only use express comps if you have enough to cover the whole thing?

    When we were at Bellagio (my only Mlife experience) the host just said charge it all to your room and let the express comps accumulate and I'll take it off at the end. She had already comp'd the room up front and then took about $500 off of our food bill. Seemed like a simple and easy way to handle it but I don't have a host at the BR.

    They have a host office which is easy to find. They have been very good about comping food. Just charge it to your room or use your EC when paying(if you have enough). They last couple of times they took all of my EC before they took off anything, so if you have a lot of EC accumulated you need to spend them or you will just be using your LV comps to pay for Biloxi.

    Thanks guys! So are the hosts still down that funny little hall off the casino floor or do you have to have them paged from the Mlife desk?

    I visit the Biloxi one forum routinely, but it has been pretty dead for awhile. I see you posted over there.
