I keep reading on here about if you book your offer through a host, there is play expected - vs. just booking a marketing offer. Back before the offers came out, I sent an e-mail to a "Bellagio Marketing Specialist" (I just grabbed this name from a recent e-mail one of us had gotten) asking about a stay in September. He said he could book the rooms, but nothing else until the actual offers came out. I thanked him, but said I preferred evaluating the entire package so that we would just wait. Well, 2 weeks later, the offers came out so I went back to him and he booked the offers for us. Mine was a VIP offer with a suite, which I downgraded to a Lakeview room. My BF's offer was just for a regular room which he upgraded to a Lakeview room. So - did I book through a host - or did we just book a Marketing offer??? Don't get me wrong - we plan on playing - I'm just curious what this would be considered. His title is not "host".
