    What would happen if a host booked me a room, food, limo etc at one property and I book an offer for the same dates at another property under the same corporation? And why am I still able to do this?

    Last time I tried this at an MGM property I had to cancel the first reservation before booking the 2nd? What "corporation" was this?

    It was an mgm property. Im set up already thru a host at one property. But apparently i can still book an offer with another property on mlife. Not sure why that is or what would happen to my reservation.

    Btw, I haven't tried booking the offer online. Just found it kind of weird.

    I reserved a corporate offer over the phone at aria for December and it doesn't complain when I try to book the same dates online ( never tried booking). When I called to book on the phone originally, they did are I had a bellagio reservation already (which i wanted to cancel and switch to aria).

    Their system is probably just different from CET where you can't even see prices/comps if you have a reservation alreaey

    You can book a comped offer and then book additional rooms at the special tier (Gold, Platinum, Noir) rate.

    Online, it is the winter offer which is almost the same thing but with less f&b but at a different hotel.

    I did this before to get a free room for a friend.

    host did not care as long as you play "enough" at their property.

    I low played the other hotel, but its not a place I would stay regularly, so I never kept track if my offers changed or not.

    mlife.com seems to be a seperate entity from the host. host can offer you what you "deserve" and usually wont even look at your offers.

    I have been advised to not "double" book at the same property. It will probably strain the relationship with the host if you do not play enough for both offers.

    You can SEE the offer, but not sure you can actually book it. I would guess it would bounce, either during the final booking process, or sometime between now and arrival.

    I am pretty sure it will be caught.

    If you even are able to book the second offer, your host at Aria could see it in the system if he or she looked. This may not sit well with your host if he/she is comping you already.

    Thanks for the responses everyone. I wasn't going to try to book it but was just wondering what would happen or if a person could actually book an offer at another resort under mgm.

    The hosts reservation systems aren't always connected with the company players club systems. Some hosts I've dealt with have issues and others don't seem to care. Ultimately if you spend enough no host will care. lol.
