    Here is a room tour and rant about my experience checking in at Planet Hollywood. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has had similar...

    I had a similar "you don't rate" experience at Paris, but in my case, I really don't rate, no Diamond here. They were quite nasty about it, shocking really. I realize their job is hard but I wasn't asking for the moon, just my room. Waited needlessly and it soured me on the place.

    I have a room booked at PH in January....normally stay at MGM properties but my brother got Diamond status through some status matching he did so he is staying there. I wanted to stay close so staying there as well. Kinda nervous about staying there now after the PH video by Matt. May look back into a close MGM property as I am no Diamond either.

    I always love your vlogs... love them! wow - that slot pull in the high limit area was so exciting - glad you filmed it all... and I even enjoyed your check-in rant... I agree it is ridiculous - it was almost $1. a minute in your case!!
    thanks for sharing and I look forward to your next trip whenever that may be :)

    I have had nothing but positive experiences at Planet Hollywood and I have stayed there at a variety of different tier levels. I hope the person you were dealing with was just a bad egg.

    I also got my Diamond status via a tier match (from MLife Gold). In 2020 I'll be down to a regular card level.

    Many thanks!

    I’m a long time lurker and I think this is my first post. Your vlogs are great. I appreciate how much work you put into them. They are a nice mix of everything. Keep it up. Thanks.

    I greatly enjoy these VLOGs. I am always sorry to see them end but I guess you do have to go home occasionally to walk your dog.

    My first stay at Bally's in October 2018, I got there at 9:45 am. The lady at the front desk was so nice when she found out it was my first stay there. She checked me in early, told me normally there was a fee but she wouldn't charge me it this time. Said that normally if you oome any time after twelve noon, they will check you in early without charging a fee.
    I found that to be true at Mirage my last trip there, I checked in at noon with no fee. I checked in at the VIP lounge, not sure if that made any difference or not.

    When I was watching the Vlog, of course as an American in high school in early 90s, I know who he is, but his mother, Mitzi Shore, owned the Comedy Store on sunset boulevard in LA and launched the careers of many a famous comedian. He grew up in that and was left a permanent job as manager in some sort of trust I think in her will when she recently passed. So we may just know him from his silly movies, but he is literally comic blood and can do standup in his sleep with little effort I think. I would have loved the opportunity to catch a free show in Vegas!
