    So there are lots of questions on here about how to get a host and time and time again we are told that it is based on ADT. My DH, who is a gold card member received an email and phone call from VIP services yesterday based on credits that I put on his card in 1 evening of gambling on my September solo trip (around 1300 tier credits in total).

    Just further proof that tier doesn't really matter. In the booking calendar, he can always get Ballys, Harrahs, Flamingo and Quad for free, with lower tier Caesars and PHO rooms available as well.

    Bottom line, while higher tiers do have some benefits (no resort fees, line skipping, etc.), it probably isn't worth the money to chase the higher tiers. Instead, put it one good day of gambling in Vegas and you are bound to get some decent offers based on your ADT for that day.

    This was the email he received (from a host which is how I book all of my Diamond VIP offers):

    I’m writing to introduce myself as your new contact here for the Caesars Entertainment properties. I am happy to be at your service anytime you want to experience any of the Total Rewards® Casinos.

    I can unlock all the incredible experiences nationwide, from room and show bookings to dinner reservations. I can also book any offers you get in the mail, and clue you in to giveaways, tournaments and special events you may enjoy. I look forward to showing you all the benefits of having an assigned contact at your service. “One-stop shopping” is the only the beginning, so call me whenever you need anything. Whenever you are ready to book your accommodations, just call me or email me with your information.

    Information that I would strongly recommend and request you have for me would be the following:
    a) Reward card number
    b) Preference of smoking/non-smoking room
    c) Preference king/queen bedding
    d) Offer code you are looking at or just the dates you are looking for a room to come in.
    e) Which property. Name two to three Caesars Entertainment properties in order of preference

    Your next great vacation begins with me! I’m just a phone call away when you’re ready to return.



    For those wondering, hope this info helps. DHs Tier Score, as of yesterday, with bonuses was 2910.

    He just got the email yesterday and I played on his card on September 8th. If I recall, when I had my host at VIP assigned, it took a few months as well.

    what you got is what alot of use started reciving around 2 years ago.
    i forgot the corrrect term for them but there more reginal or marketing host to help take the load off of the real high level hosts.

    they may or may not be able to better than booking thru the calander.

    one thing to rember if you book thru them is they expect a level of play where if you can book the same comp using the rate calander you have alot less pressure to gamble.just something to think off.

    i never botherd using the one that contacted me becuase i got all the free rooms i needed from the calander.

    These folks are generally telephone people that work the back rooms for promising visitors. They will help you out getting the basic stuff. Make use of them.
