I was posting a live trip report and then I pushed it by the wayside because we were having too much fun. The last two days, in particular, we had a great time. We stayed at the MB and had a wonderful experience. MB has been our home base for the last 3 trips and we will continue to stay at MB: it fits our style. We left BWI on a 7:00 AM flight and arrived at 8:50. Our bags were coming out by the time we arrived at baggage claim. We were at MB by 9:30. The staff at the invited check-in line told us we could not check-in until 10:00. We wandered around the casino and checked in at 10. I asked the clerk for an upgrade but assumed I was SOL because the MAGIC convention was in town. The clerk upgraded us to a suite (room 31201). This room had the best view we have ever had in Vegas. It was about 6 or 7 floors below the Foundation Room and had the same viewpoint of the FR. It was also 30 steps from the elevators but you could not hear any of the elevator traffic. The first day we were very tired. The last couple of weeks had been crazy for both of us work wise and we worn down. We hit Burger Bar for lunch and did a little gambling afterwards. At 4:00 we were both ready to go to sleep and so we decided to walk down to Linq and check it out. We were underwhelmed. I will be the first to admit that we are not big fans of CET. The whole promenade was a ghost town when walked through. There was no line for the High Roller. The one thing that shocked me is that the Quad now faces toward the promenade and there is no access point from Las Vegas Blvd. All you see is fire exits. It is quite ugly. We walked back to MB and were in bed by 8:30. Pretty pathetic.
