    Hello all... need to pick your brains a little bit.

    Background: I'm a Vegas veteran. 3-4 trips a year. Home away from home is the Westgate. Tired of the strip and all that goes along with it. A longtime host of mine moved to Sunset Station a year ago, and invited me along --- I did enjoy that.

    I'm room comped for about as many days as I want, along with free play of 100-200 at places like Westgate, Plaza, and Sunset Station.

    Here's my dilemma.....I'm a bowler, and coming to Vegas for Nationals in April. Nationals are hosted at South Point. I have zero play history at South Point....maybe a brief stop in about 5 years ago. I would like to stay at South Point, as it's just more convenient, since the purpose of the trip is to bowl.

    Cost of 3 nights at South Point is going to be about $550 over the weekend we are going. I could stay elsewhere for free....but then I'm commuting...and likely "low playing" my host hotel. Not ideal on either end.

    Question is: what kind of play at South Point will get my room charges comped off on the back end?? Anybody have experience at this property? I know enough to book direct with hotel, and not a 3rd party, to make this possible at checkout. Just wondering on what they'll expect for play???

    As for emailing a host....I've tried "cold emailing" them. No reply.

    Help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    We stay at South Point about twice a year. We only play slots and not very much. The comps for us are usually free buffet and free play. Never get to the level of being offered a free room. South Point is considered a locals casino and on the list for better comps than Station casinos. Don't know if that helps you any.

    After trying various other "off strip and downtown" properties, wife and I chose the SP to be our Vegas spot. Stopped to see a host on the first visit, by the second visit we were RFB with car service and treated like family by our host and bartenders. Each of us have a daily budget of $500. We tip well but not crazy. The SP has all of the amenities that we could want and were given a suite for our anniversary. The hosts are nice people and very approachable.
    Stop by their office, can't miss it it is on the way to the elevator, and introduce yourself. They will be honest as to expected play and comps available.

    I've gotten tremendous comps at Southpoint. I'll be there the weekend of March 11th, and they gave me 2 rooms for 4 nights each. I've gotten both the junior and the deluxe suites comped before. I can usually get food comps, but I don't rack up a lot of charges doing that so we're probably talking less than $100 worth.

    Courtney Whitaker has been our host, she's very pleasant and generous.
