    I always just have my host do this at the end of my trip, But I have a friend who doesn't have a host. I am sure he will have enough play to get his resort fees comped off. But since he will be getting a totals reward card for the first time, where should he go and when to ask about getting his resort fees waived. He is paying for the room and he is a black chip bj player and craps player and will play 4-8 hours a day. So does he just go to the host area and ask anyone on duty to see if his play warrants comping resort fees. Or does the total rewards desk do this. Thanks.

    He should go to the host area and have a host review his play. If he is playing black chip 4-8 hours per day he can most likely get the room comped also.

    BINGO!

    If his play is really at that level, he will get room and fee waived. Host might say - "Come on in, and we will see at the end",.... but, with that play, all will be fine.

    Slide the clerk a $20 when he checks in and see if they can remove the fees.

    If you are a black chip player you won't need the $20 at check in to cover resort fees (or rooms!)

    When I go to vegas I always assumed that I would play X amount. In reality I'd never play half that much and would still lose everything. I find it is easier to take care of business up front and then ask for stuff next time, unless someone offers it to me there.

    He is a black chip player. And I know where I will play, But if he gets crushed early then lowers his play, plays at mlife properties, or gets sick and no plays 2 days, I don't want my host pissed at me because I told him my friend is this type of player then doesn't do it. Example, I tell my host my friend is coming and is black chip player for 4-8 hours a day. He would probably comp him the room upfront then check play to get resort fees taken off. Then what if does one of the above. I would rather let him deal with a host after he gets there and have everything taken care of that way. He knows my hosts name and will probably ask for him, but what if he is not available. I don't mind telling him the best way to go about things, but he is flakey and likes to get really hammered at casinos. So I don't want to be too involved.
