    Hi All,
    I recently booked 8 rooms in the Bellagio and because of this one of their host email me and asked if he could do anything for me. Of course being an innocent irishman I told him I'd love his help, collecting us from the airport, cabannas by the pool and restaurant bookings. The problem is that none of us are gamblers, we are only here for beer so I don't think the hotel are going to make a fortune out of us. I have no problem paying for the services but how much do I need to tip the host overall?? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated..

    I would suggest an honest approach with the host. He could put you in contact with a concierge that would be of great help with arrangements. Inquire as to what is expected on your end to receive certain
    comps as hosts are strictly for players. - Good luck & have a fun trip!

    I doubt a casino host called you.

    He is mailing from an mgm email list and has all of mlife details(platinum) so I think he is genuine.

    Don't lead this guy on and let him know it's not a big gambling trip. A concierge is what you really need if you would rather have someone else handle these things.

    I assume you got your platinum level via spending? I'm guessing it's a new host who is taking a flyer on a Platinum guest. As long as you're happy to pay for everything you might as well use him.
