    Current offers:
    Wynn
    $500 Freeplay
    3 nights in a Panoramic King room
    $600 food and bev total

    Bellagio
    3 nights in a suite (salone suite)
    $350 Freeplay
    $300 food and bev total

    This is my dilemma:
    I know that the Wynn offer is better upfront. But at MGM properties you can receive express comps which can be used towards the spa. The Wynn will not comp me spa.

    Also, I emailed my host at Wynn and told him I had an offer elsewhere. He replied with, "Let me know if you have any preferences or request, that will help change your mind to stay here."

    Here is what I would like to ask for: a suite in a the tower suite section (a king suite is fine, entry level), and a ride to/from the airport in addition to the current offer.

    Do you think it it would be asking for too much? Thanks. What would you do? Thank you.

    U are not really asking for that much more. U will get the same room type just at a different location and check in. Besides airport transfer u will get faster check in and pool access to tower suits 2nd level.

    Keep in mind the Bellagio may invoke the "when available" clause on the suite offer. Pretty much if your stay is over a weekend, there's a good chance you won't get the suite.

    Meanwhile, getting upgraded to a Tower Suite King Room and getting limo transfers is going to be no problem at Wynn. Furthermore, if you're giving them decent play anything above $600 in F+B charges will be comped off anyway. I'd press them for more freeplay. $750 shouldn't be an issue...maybe even ask for $1000. You can then use that to pay for the spa, because you are correct, spa charges will not be comped at Wynn.

    Thanks for your quick responses. My stay is Sun-Wed. I opted out of the suite at the Bellagio because they are not remodeled and I'm traveling solo on this trip. But I am curious about the tower suites at Wynn.

    Captain Jack: How do I ask for more freeplay? Just come right out and ask? How do you use your freeplayto pay for spa at Wynn?

    My expectation on the FP to spa is just by the potential for converting it to cash. All in the luck of the spins.

    Also, if you feel like you would on an average, exceed $300 f/b total, then anything over that (and up to $600) that you would normally spend but aren't is basically cash in pocket to the spa. (For me $300 is way more than I would spend anyway).

    You might as well ask - the worst they can say is No. I don't think the limo pickup will be a big deal - usually get that for RFB. The upgrade to Tower Suite may be a bit of an issue as you usually have to be rated higher to get into the TS area. That being said, I have been upgraded to Parlour Suite from my usual Tower suite at times so you never know.

    Just an FYI - The expectation for play for a TS, with $200 day F/B, limo, and 1K FP is around 1k a hand for 4 hours a day while you're there.

    What I meant by using your freeplay to pay for your spa treatments...play the freeplay through once and cash out, use that money to pay for the spa.

    As for asking for more freeplay, your host asked you what more you'd want...I don't think he's expecting a formal written proposal, just ask.
