My travel friend and I were in LV in October 2015 - stayed at the Encore for two nights as guests of friends, and based on our previous May 2015 play we had a comped room at Palazzo so our third night was at Palazzo. We are going to Venetian in 3 weeks on friend's offer, 3 nights and some FP, and the host combined my offer as well so I get FP too. We also get some credits for Canyon Ranch Spa but probably won't use it. Relaxing? Nah, we have shopping and gambling to do!!!! We discovered the Gold lounge at Venetian last October and were happy about that. My question is: how long do you stay Gold? Does it last for six months, a year? I noticed that there is a Gold shuttle for Venetian/Palazzo guests, and I have my Gold card but am worried that I show up and they will say, Sorry, you aren't Gold anymore. We're looking forward to brunch at Lavo, those wicked Lobster Eggs Bennie and Truffle Mac'n'Cheese - some shopping at Fashion Show Mall and a ton of gambling. Alcohol may be consumed. I have MyVegas 2 for 1 Bellagio dinner buffet and MyVegas Bellagio art gallery (for me; pal will probably be gambling). TIA, Eloisegirl.
