After Sunday and Monday at the Orleans, I checked into MaBay on Tuesday. My Mlife status was Pearl, with 14K points from Gold. I valet exclusively and was not looking forward to paying. But, as I valeted on Tuesday, the valet attendant explained the new parking system and fees. Each day I was charged $18 for valet. The system is you keep the short stub with you every day until check out. Each day you pull into valet, they check your short stub against the long stub that they put on your window dash on day one. On Thursday, I made Gold and wondered about the parking fees mid-visit. When I checked out yesterday morning, I mentioned to the front desk agent that I made Gold and does this alter the valet parking fees. He asked what day I made Gold and I told him Thursday. He removed the valet parking fees for Thursday and Friday - no questions, no problem - only paying for Tuesday and Wednesday. I had a foreboding feeling when I first pulled up to MaBay, thinking about this whole parking thing. Of all the changes lately, this one really affected me because I rent/drive/valet every trip. But I had a positive experience with it and thankfully, I won’t pay for valet (at least through September 2017!). Another note: when I pulled into Bellagio valet (I saw O Friday night), the attendant scanned the window dash stub. From the stub, they know your name and explains no charge for this visit.
