    The offers are as follows;

    Bellagio- 3 night Comp , $100 FP ,$ 100 RC- Fountainview King
    Fontainebleau- 3 nights @ $120 per night,$150 RC- Bleau King
    Wynn- 3 nights @ $179 -Resort King
    I'm ready to move on from Aria and 3 nights comped at Bellagio is a no brainer but want to check out Fontainebleau and think it's a decent offer for a first time guest and The Wynn is the Wynn .
    What would you do if you were me?

    Did FnB decline to match your Bellagio offer?

    Sgt. Shultz- I'm waiting to hear back from FB if they will match my MGM offers. In the meantime that was the offer that was waiting for me in my FB Rewards account and I thought it was pretty decent. The restaurants, pool and newness really appeal to me but there seems to be a consensus that the casino floor is lacking action and a vibe.

    It's not for me but I think everyone should make up their own mind

    Hopefully they'll match you and make it easier to pull the trigger on trying it out

    I would say bellagio and gamble at Wynn. Aria and bellagio are the same in the mgm universe as far as offers for most of us so take the comp and rc there and also seed Wynn for better rates and/or offers. I want to get up to RW or FB but it seems soooo far from everything. Wynn is north but an easy walk to VP, then another easy walk to Caesars shops and before you know it you at bellagio.

    Bellagio cuz you already know what you’re getting and it’s free plus upfront comps and you’ll get backend comps. Then Uber to FB to check it out so you know if it’s something you will like playing a for next time. Can also eat there:) lots of good eats there!

    When are you coming?

    Given those choices...I go Bellagio .....and i am a huge Wynn fan . but the comp + FP and RC make it a no brainer

    Also the FB offer- I have a very similar offer $110 weekday $150 FP and $100 RC - but when you actually try to book it , the rates are higher than the $110 . i am sure it probably says "from" $110 a little deceptive in my opinion

    I would stay at Bellagio. You will be paying $800+ out of pocket more to stay at FB or Wynn. Play at MGM universe; otherwise, you'll be spreading yourself thin.

    You can go check out FB without stay or play, and see if it's a good fit for a future stay.

    I was in your situation a while back. I would do the Wynn and see if you can get backend comps for your stay. I didn’t gamble much there my first time after paying for my stay and they still comped my stay (3 nights).

    Maybe cuz I was new or just got lucky with the host on duty who was the vp of player development I found out later.

    When was that? and what is not gambling much?
    2 years ago when I first started playing at Wynn they were quite a bit more generous.

    Complete no brainer, Bellagio
    Also agree with the posters before, try to get an offer match from FB, double book, be happy at the big B and enjoy your second room at FB

    Bellagio if free and that matters.
    Wynn if money isn't an issue.
    FB if Red Roof Inn is taken.
