    Practice. And in this case I just made this walk 24 hours ago, but I made it quick and direct because I already knew. I stayed 5 or 6 nights at Bellagio within the last year and I do tend to explore anything that might interest me anywhere I stay.

    Also this.

    And this.

    Okay, so I kinda got the impression that a suit was following me around from afar with a tablet at Excalibur yesterday. Last night, a host reached out to me, from Excalibur. Any of you with MLife hosts use them exclusively for other properties? That's the one MLife place I absolutely wouldn't stay, but would be great to have a host help with the places I like. Also, why Excalibur?!? I know they're bottom of the MLife barrel but I did over 5x the coin in at Luxor and I think also more at Aria and about same at NYNY, Mandalay, etc.

    My Luxor host has been helping me with Aria bookings since the policy changed. She gets credit for my play.

    Excalibur host should be able to help you anywhere within MGM - even Biloxi.

    Great, fun report! You seemed to stay just the right amount of time, one whole week. Lots of adventure without getting bored, jaded, or going broke! Always nice to have wins on the end!

    One example that I mentioned before...she has gotten regular room offers upgraded to comped Sky Suites. The only exception was on a really busy weekend, I have to pay a little for the upgrade. Maybe I could have gotten that done via the reservation line but having her do it made it easier for me. She is responsive but I get the feeling she is much busier--and her work schedule is different--since the cuts in personnel were made during COVID's worst times.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, that's encouraging. I'd consider staying there if they have suites I dont know about that are decent. The only ones I've seen on the YouTubes looked like base rooms where they turned a connecting room in to a living room, but still sort of decrepit, and small looking, and window box ACs. The host's name is Nick.

    Thank you! This is exactly the kind of thing that would interest me. And things like not having to wait in that huge line at Luxor to get to the priority line, and not having to run around with security and FOH manager to get a parking spot approved, etc.

    Great TR, thanks for sharing. Depending on whether or not some of our friends actually make it to Vegas next week with us, I will try my own live TR from Cosmo.

    For anyone interested, I did a walkthrough video of the room on my way out and put it on the YouTubes here:

    The royal 2 bedroom was amazing for us it had a connector.. and Nick H is my host there. We came over from MGM after a week there and we hardly played and he picked up all charges for us including pool pod and drinks and 500 in food. He is a good host.

    Thanks for the video walkthrough! Seems like a really good room 2 couples/friends/etc to split.

    This makes me sad. Both my boys (now adults) loved this place. :(

    Yah, I thought it was sad too, honestly, but couldn't resist the joke setup.

    Not sure which legends you mean, but this reminds me of something that happened shortly after we got all the way in the room. And I'm sure there's a reasonable physics-based explanation for this but daaaamn was it weird.

    Ok so I had just gotten a can of red bull in the casino and luck arrived back from the grocery shopping so I went to meet her in the parking lot and carry up stuff get her a key and all that, and while I'm in the room I need to take a short meeting in the throne room. So I sat on the toilet and set the red bull down on the tile floor. After about 90 seconds of sitting there, my red bull can, standing straight up on the ground, moved really slowly about 2 or 3 inches across the tile. I was like whoa! Wtf?!? And as I was sitting there contemplating how it must be that the can was sweating from walking outdoors and back, and probably slid on it's own condensation, it moved again, farther this time, until it ran in to a grout line and stopped. No water on the ground, no drips in the grout. I move it back to the opposite edge of the tile and filmed it for like 2 minutes but it never moved again. How fun is that?!?!
