I stayed at the MGM this past weekend. I enjoyed it. I liked the room well enough (despite being the small West Wing room). I also enjoyed the casino. On Friday afternoon, I found a nice table: $25 3:2, S17, Surrender, DA2, DAS. Unfortunately, that was the table where I lost nearly everything I ended up losing net-net. I also ended up having to play some 6:5 (I KNOW, I KNOW!! You can crucify me--I deserve it!!) only because I was there with my sister and brother-in-law. My BIL never plays at home and is a very casual player. He didn't care enough to spend the time to find a 3:2 table with a limit he wanted to play. I didn't play much and I never played 6:5 on my own. $15 craps tables were widely available. Plus, a nice sportsbook. And TONS of bars and restaurants. I didn't really play as much as I probably would've on my own. I was happy to spend the time w/ my sis and BIL because we did a ton of fun stuff. I only got about 9700 points, which included my meal at Craftsteak and the room itself. So I don't have very high expectations for getting much in the way of offers. I'd gladly stay there again for my next trip to Vegas but I'd sort of like to try another place--I mean, it's Vegas, why not check out other places. Looking at the pricing, etc...I'm happy to stay focused on MGM properties. So I really strongly have my eye on Aria. (I'd LOVE to give Cosmo a try but without an offer, it's a little out of reach for me). So my question: Given my relatively limited play on the first trip, do you think it really matters if I stay somewhere else next time? Would it be better to stay again at MGM (next time will probably have more play) and continue to build up my relationship there? Or is the only "important" thing staying within MGM? I'm not looking for or expecting fully comped rooms or really anything on the back end. I know my play isn't high enough. All I really want is nice-ish offers that allow me to afford to go to Vegas about twice a year. Thoughts?
