We just returned from 6 nights in Vegas 3 at the Mirage followed by 3 at Bellagio. We arrived with Mlife gold status expecting some of the advertised perks for the gold card and didn't get them at either resort. Supposedly we were entitled to a room upgrade and early check-in and we didn't get either at either resort. We arrived early in the day at each place and was told both times that a room upgrade wasn't available. I could see it if we checked in late and they were all gone already but that couldn't be the case. At the Mirage we booked a tower room on the 24&25th floor and only asked for a south facing view of the strip and Caesars. They only wanted to give us a pool view which I wouldn't accept. After being persistent and the best they would do for us was a north facing strip view and this was at 11:00 AM. We had to go back 3 times and didn't get a room assignment until around 1:00pm. At the Bellagio the best we could get was a 10th floor pool view in spite of asking for a fountain view. To make a long story shorter I feel that the Gold Benefits are a farse. Can you please share your experiences on the value of Mlife gold. The 20% bonus on earning points and express comps are good but that is the only perk we received and this left me with a bad taste in my mouth for Mlife.
