    New CET perks for diamond/seven star members

    Just got this email:


    From what I understand, platinum members and above always got late checkout if you asked for it. Last year I was told platinum got 1pm checkout and diamond was 3pm. The free resort fees with everything included is what I was really hoping for this year. While my host has always comp'd the wifi fees anyways it's nice to not even have to think about them now. I was at The Linq two weekends ago and they actually never charged me for wifi at all so maybe they already knew about the changes (I'm diamond)

    Just got the same thing. Especially the wifi access, at least in some places.

    Some locations do not have a Resort Fee and they charge for Wifi only if accessed. Cherokee is one of those. I just use a hotspot off my phone in those places anyways.

    Oh gosh, some common sense. Folks that gamble that much should have unquestioned free WiFi.

    What elements are usually included in a resort fee at CET Vegas? Good for diamond players!


    As a 7 star - not too happy about limiting to one movie a day now.

    How many movies per day do you like to watch while in Vegas?

    LOL! If I am not doing good or lost too much money the night before - we may stay in the room and watch 2-3 movies if they have some that we have been wanting to see.

    When staying at Caesar's Palace, does the resort fee include comp access to the Qua Spa?

    Very nice addition although my Tmobile reception is usually so good in Vegas I don't bother with Wi-Fi anyways. Nice to have a free option now.

    No. The Qua Spa is not covered by the resort fee. However it was free for Seven Stars and a companion in January for me

    I noticed with diamond, they now also guarantee a room with 72 hours notice in Vegas and Atlantic city.

    1 free movie is a downgrade so theres a difference...each year they seem to take a lil more from 7* and give more to diamond

    What was it before? I seem to remember something about a free movie. Was it unlimited movies before?

    Very nice news to wake up to in the morning. Not having to pay for $15 WiFi is going to be great!

    i think vegas was unlimited, most places were 2 free per day...it may not seem like much taking 1 movie a way per day, but each year they take and take...7* is supposed to be the top level to work for but with a few exceptions it seems just doing 80k diamond is just as good

    Unlimited movies at Vegas and Lake Tahoe. Other places like Rincon had two movies. One movie is a new low for Seven Stars. I used to like to start a movie and move on if it was a dud. Cannot do that any more
