    What are the odds Stratosphere would be willing to comp internet during a 4 night stay? I'm debating bringing my iPad with us on the trip since we have a rental car. Anything we want to check out I wanna be able to look up before we go just to make sure it's worth our time.

    On my trip last summer, I stayed 3 nights and logged into internet twice (got the first night free because of a glitch in the tv code in my room and when they came to fix it, I got a day for free). Also put show tickets and several meals and a few drinks on my room charges and got all comped off except for $20 by the end of my stay. And for the record, I gambled about $400 a day average.

    If you give them enough action in the casino then yes they would comp the internet fee.

    If it were me I would bring the ipad either way: load it up with notes and files on things I want to see/do, download some videos before the trip, some games, etc - might be times I need some down time in the room and don't want to just watch hotel TV.

    Plus there is a Starbucks there that might have free WiFi.

    If you want to keep the internet charges down the other thing to do is use the WiFi "smartly" as you need it.

    Example: You are there for four days:
    Day 1: you arrive, go check in, have dinner, gamble, etc. you don't need internet right now.
    Day 2: activate the internet at 11AM. You now have internet in the room all day, can do your research on the net, etc.
    Day 3: get up before 11AM and use the internet. Then you are out and about all day so you don't need internet access.
    Day 3: when back at the room at night, reactivate the internet at midnight
    Day 4: the internet is still active until midnight, if you need it you got it all day
    Day 5: you are going home today. You will have internet at the airport if you really need it.

    Thats just an example of how you can cover 5 days and 4 nights where you have internet access most of the time, but you only activated/paid for it twice.
