    Your plan sounds great. I can feel that it works for you and adds to your enjoyment, plus you've got the move down, so it makes sense to do it!

    Our trips are mostly 5 nights. A couple of times we have split our stay between two places. Last year we stayed at Cromwell for 3 nights before moving to MGM the last two. I did double book the 3rd night so on the transfer we could go straight to the room without checking in. I enjoyed mixing it up but the wife is not a big fan.

    Just wanted to chime in about the CPAP. I also just carry it on in the well padded case it came with. Also, in case you didn't know, it does not count as piece of carry on luggage b/c it's a "medical device". So you can have your regular carry on with no worries.

    I usually stay 6 or 7 nights. Doesn't really make sense to stay less coming from East Coast. Always stay at 2 hotels, often 3. Once stayed 2 nights HR/2 @ Bally's (weekend)/3 nights back @ HR
    I am approaching the age where 2 night stays are becoming a royal pain in the ass. Going forward, trying to do 3-4 day stays

    Our typical trip is 7 nights, 4-5 at V/P (our home base), and 2-3 at a CET property where we have a good deal. If less than 7 (for example our coming trip is 5) we just look at offers and see what appeals. This coming trip there was nothing at CET that jumped out at us so we're at Palazzo all 5 nights. So long as we aren't paying for the room we prefer to stay, but we add another hotel in if need be or for a change of pace. The craziest trip we ever had was M Resort (2 nights) + Rio (1 night) + Palazzo (5 nights) for the R&R Marathon a couple years ago when it was harder to find comp offers around the race booking last minute.

    Comp comp comp for us all the way too Smerrian---I'd rather hop than pay! Last trip was 10 days in 3 hotels.

    (Caveat, we won't book a comp for less than 3 nights though... it's just too harried. And we DO pay late checkout, so that we're on OUR schedule, not the hotel's.)

    Ack, this is my big goal for my next trip....remembering I do NOT use all the clothes I bring. Lighter packing!

    Our upcoming trip starting on 4/19 for 14 nights, all comped except for hotel in Bishop:

    Arrive LV at 9:45 AM, get the rental and drive to Bishop for an overnight stay on the way to Tahoe.
    Harrah's LT, 4/20-4/22
    Peppermill Reno 4/22/4/25
    GVR 4/25-4/28
    Harrah's Laughlin 4/28-4/30 for a Willy Nelson concert
    4/30-5/3 Aria

    We love changing venues. We mostly play where we stay so changing hotels gives us a whole different vibe and a new set of VP/slots to play.

    My next trip:

    5/24 - NYNY MyVegas Comp (flight gets in 9:40 p.m., I'll just be sleeping and then Ubering over)

    5/25-26 - Aria, CAS Royal offer

    5/27 - Hyatt Place (Chase Anniversary Night for a room going for $279).

    I'll be spending most of that day at MGM anyway. I'll nap then head over for a MyVegas buffet before Dead & Company show.
