    Wasn't sure whether to post this here or strip casinos.

    I have 2 or 3 days comps at all the MLIFE Strip casinos and I am a CET player and I am staying at Paris. I was thinking of double booking a couple nights. With the offer I have to pay resort fees but get a $50 resort credit and $50FP. Was trying to decide which resort to pick. My first thought was Mandalay Bay for the pool complex.

    My trip is a long Labor day weekend and this would be the front end of the trip.

    Which resort would you recommend and why?

    My .02 on double booking. (and I realize that you didn't ask for it)
    Double booking is a double edged sword. Good if you're up, bad if you're not doing so well and don't want to "burn" either property/organization.

    I can't really judge the properties based on pool type because I'm not really a "pool" person.

    My only thought about Mandalay Bay is that it's way the heck out at the South end of the strip and if you won't have a car and want to visit the strip, it will take some navigatin. Personally, I would pick Aria. Of all the mLife properties, I feel that it "has it all"

    Double booking ...wasting a comp....IMO.

    MGM Grand pool is much closer.

    I agree. Especially if the monorail is working. Is there a reason you need to double book versus doing a longer stay/hotel hop?

    Not really, but this talk may get me to squeeze in another trip in August and try a weekend at MLIFE casinos. My local is CET so I just have always stayed on those properties mainly. For me its like do I pick Bellagio, Aria, Mandalay? I have gambled at them all briefly but never stayed on those properties.

    Bellagio and Aria are the tightest for comps and offers. Just a heads up.

    We love M-Bay but have done NYNY the last few trips to change things up.

    I’m not sure what you are trying to accomplish here. Double book to collect $1000 free play? Sure. Double book to pay a resort fee and collect $50? I’m not sure what the point is.

    I do double booking a lot. But, as low roller as me, I don't do it for just $50 FP + $50 RC.
    That's not enough to justify the time and effort I have to spend on check-in & check-out, let alone the impact on future offers.
    Need to pay resort fee? hell no.
    $200 + $200, I will consider it.
