    Sometimes you have to edit your picture for orientation. Prior to uploading a file. But I don’t mind tilting my head either. Thanks for the insider look.
     
    Hopefully, finally !!!

    Please take pics! Everything from in the flight, at the airport, even baggage claim is of interest to all of us on effective home arrest.

    Checked out the first bar that my buddy was hyping and they were closed. He said they were just open last weekend . Just about everything is closed. Grabbed a beer and walking the strip. Might check out this other bar later that my buddy says he was at last night

    Thanks for sharing. Do they have the usual music and ads piped in still, like around Casino Royale, or is it quiet? Locked casinos would drive me crazy!
     
    First stop!

    It’s quiet. Some casinos have music piped in. Think it was the cosmopolitan that did. It’s very different. That’s for sure. Was talking to some people who said the earliest and best case scenario is that casinos would open up May 29 but likely in June

    no and neither are the other amenities. There is a Starbucks that is open in the Westin but that’s about it

    they are not charging resort fees from what I understand

    I think we all should complain if pools are closed and they are still changing a resort fee. I’m only gold at CET so I pay the resort fee. I don’t mind so much because I get a room comped Sunday-Thursday, and don’t pay too much for weekend nights. But it’s my understanding that the pool and gym are a big part of the resort fee. If both are closed, I’d like to know how they will justify the fee, especially for those that are not players, and paying full price for the room.

    Are they using disposable menus? I’ve heard restaurants will do that or you can scam a QR code and see the menu on your phone.

    yeah disposable menu and they had a placemat that they desantized before giving you the food too. Waitress wore mask. They were fairly busy and only had one waitress but she rocked it and the food was good. Felt good to be able to sit down in a restaurant again...

    Are you posting from an iPad? There is an issue with them an not using the option for a lesser resolution image.

    Also, I've added all your images as "full image" so they show inline in your post, instead of having to click through the thumbnails.

    That's a good point that I hadn't even thought of - if the fitness center and pool are closed about all the services that most hotels are providing on that front are Internet access and 'boarding pass printing' (which may be a thing of the past soon anyway as no-one want to touch other people's papers anymore) you'd think they'd have to lower resort fees, at least on a moral level.

    Does the Governor have anything to say about when and how these services might ‘re-open’?
