I think the confusion is that pre-covid this was the case. My understanding is that since re-opening, it is no longer true. And I suspect the reasoning behind it is that they "diversified" their hosts while laying others off, integrating their Vegas market like the Caesars model. There may still be *some* truth to the property matters concept as it relates to specific hosts and what kind of credit they get or strings they can pull, but as it relates to general offers and ratings, this does not seem to be the case. Prior to Christmas, I'd only stayed at Bellagio and mostly played there while staying (I enjoy their casino and had nothing to do with comps) but not entirely. I stayed at Luxor for a couple days at Christmas because my Bellagio stays and play got me suites with no resort fees offers at the pyramid and Bellagio would only give me a resort tower room with resort fees those dates. I split my play heavily those 2 days between MGM Grand, NYNY, Excalibur, Luxor, and Mandalay, played a little above my MLife average, and my offers improved at Bellagio afterward. Also, I've never once in my life, ever, inserted my card in any machine at Aria and have tower suites comped there on less crowded dates, and up to 1BR Penthouse at VDara with the same FP/RC and limits as my Bellagio offers having absolute zero rated play there and no stays or spend on my account either. As far as they know, I've never been inside either place. And I cam say the same for MGM Grand and Mandalay, that I had comp suites with FP/RC prior to ever having played or spent on my card at either. But, I dont have a host anywhwre scrambling for credit for my play either. With hosts, I'm told Caesars Palace gets treated a little differently than the rest of CZR LV market too, and hosts only get credit for CP play and try to sway players to keep their play on site whatever it takes. Not sure if that is still the case or not.
