Ok, so I know everyone's circumstances are a bit different, but there's so much insight out there, I really wanted to get the VMB'ers opinions on this one. Please forgive my long-winded detail - I figure if anyone can sympathize with my Vegas obsessions it's you guys. If you were me, what would you do? Late 40's solo male, been going to vegas couple of times a year for 25 years. Over the last ten years, I've had to reduce my visits to once a year because of time constraints, so I'm even fussier about getting my trip choices right. I come every year for a four night stay built around a poker event at WSOP. Since I like to use every moment of my non-poker time to get my Vegas fix (gambling, food, casino hopping), I prefer a hotel which is in the center-strip area, with a luxurious room, decent late-night restaurant choices, good gaming options, and a swanky-feeling casino. I play mostly BJ (50-100/hand), but have been enjoying penny video slots more and more on recent trips, just to unwind, particularly Willy Wonka, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, that sort of thing. I particularly like the $50 face-down BJ game that they offer at Venetian, but I haven't seen it much elsewhere at my level at play (sometimes there's a good $25 face down game at the Flamingo). I used to get significant (at least for me) comps at CET, MLIFE, V/P, and a couple of teaser offers at Wynncore, but my offers have dried up significantly over the last few years as my trips have become more poker focused and I've become less of a complete degenerate gambler. Since I don't get to come often and I'm a room snob, I will only consider staying at Venetian/Palazzo, Wynn/Encore, Bellagio, or Cosmopolitan. I can afford to pay rack rates for these places, so money isn't a huge issue, but I also hate to pass on a good deal, or to feel like I'm getting ripped off or undercomped. As it turns out, the days I'm looking at (Wed-Sun) are crazy pricey for the weekend days. Here are the offers/prices that I'm considering: Venetian: First two nights comped, second two nights for a total of $998 plus tax & resort fees. I enjoy the Venetian. The rooms are nice, the location/restaurants are good, but I've stayed there a bunch over the last few years, and it feels a bit "tired". Also, I've given them a decent amount of play over the past couple of trips, and feel particularly undercomped there. My host is a twenty-something that couldn't seem less interested in my business. This has been my "go to" place for a while, but I feel ready for a change. Bellagio: Fountain View King: $50 resort credit, first 2 nights comped, next 2 for a total of $590 + tax & resort fees. I like the Bellagio location, good poker room, nice casino feel, decent slots, but table games are just meh. I've stayed here four or five times in the last ten years, and feel like the rooms (while nice), aren't what they once were. Not the wow factor that I used to enjoy there. The comps are very fair considering my declining play there, but I feel like I always get shafted when I pay extra for a fountain view and it's more a view of the air conditioning ducts. Wynn/Encore: I get zero offers from here any more, and their back-end comps have been virtually non-existent at my level of play. The only reason I'm considering it is because they have my absolute favorite rooms in vegas. Just love the feel of them. Location is not super convenient though, and the gaming options at my limits aren't great, so I'd do most of my gambling elsewhere (which is fine since they're never comping me anyway). The best rate I can find for my four nights is $1,346 plus tax and resort fees. This is the "Screw it, I'm in Vegas might as well splurge", option. In addition to the cost, the downside here is that I wouldn't have a strip view, which I'm pretty interested in. Cosmopolitan: Never stayed here before, but really starting to like the vibe of the place. Played a bunch of slots here on my last trip, and think they have the best slot choices on the strip (for me). Wasn't crazy about the BJ game there, but it was ok. Restaurants are fun, and location is good. I know nothing about the rooms, and the pics I've seen online seem kind of dark. Can't tell if they're modern swanky, or modern bleak. The views are obviously spectacular (if you get a fountain view), and the terraces seem awesome. I got in touch with a host there about matching some of my Venetian or MLife offers, and this is was the best they could do: Terrace Studio, Fountain View, first two nights comped, next two for a total of $840 plus tax and resort fees. I'm tempted to give Cosmo a try, enjoy the view, and see how it feels. But I'm eager to hear everyone else's thoughts, particularly people who have stayed in the rooms at all of them. Which one of these would you go for if you were me, and why??? Thanks in advance to the VMB'ers. You're the best!
