Heading out to NYNY next month and staying on a fall corporate offer. Marquis suite comped three nights with $250 F/B credit. Normally stay at MGM or MB/Delano and book through a host but wanted to stay somewhere new and I have some business meetings off the strip and wanted quick access to the freeway. I'll have plenty of time to gamble in the afternoons and evenings. I mostly play Pai Gow Poker or Craps with a little Baccarat at an average of $200-$300/hand. 3-8 hours per day. Couple questions: 1. I've read on this board that while you need to play on corporate offers the expectation is not the same as booking through a host. I plan on giving my normal play just wondering if this is still true or if others have had a different experience? 2. Marquis suite- Anyone stayed in one? How is it? How does it compare to an Executive suite at MGM, Great room suite at MB or a suite at Delano? Anything I need to know? Likes/Dislikes? 3. Restaurants- Any recommendations? I've read posts about Gallagher's being an underrated steakhouse. I'll try it out. How does it compare to Tender at Luxor or Stripsteak/Craftsteak at MB/MGM? Any other good eats at NYNY, breakfast recommendations? 4. Lounges/Bars- I don't drink heavily at the tables while I gamble, but I do enjoy hanging out in the casino atmosphere with a couple drinks after the gambling is done. I'm not into the club scene, too old for that. Any recommendations? I've read about the dueling piano's, any other place with a live band or lounge like Skyfall(Mix), Foundation Room, or Whiskey Down? 5. Gaming Conditions- How's the pit critters? Friendly or do they sweat the $? Dealers fun or boring? Any good action in the high limit room? Any recommendations for lucky slot machines? I like to run some free play through high limit slots. 6. Platinum benefits- Any unlisted platinum benefits at NYNY? When I booked they said i could check in at VIP check in. Any other benefits not usually listed on platinum experience? 7. Resort credit- Anyone know if the resort credit is good at other properties? I usually don't leave the property I'm staying in and just gamble there as I've done all the touristy stuff. 8.Resort-Anything else? Long hallways? Slow elevators? Good/poor security? Strong/weak drinks? Favorite bartenders or pit crews? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
