    Made comped room reservations in November at Bally's for our late April trip. Was Diamond when reservation was made....been Diamond for about 12-13 years but did not make it in 2016 for 2017. Am Plat due to play and also TR Visa cardholder. Anyone recently stayed at a CET hotel when not Diamond when actual trip took place? Wondering if I will be charged the resort fee or not. Remember reading mixed info on this last year. Thanks!

    I did the same for March and was told to hurry and make Diamond or pay the fee. I did not make Diamond either.

    If it was me, I'd go into the Diamond check-in lounge and try to get your room. Then play stupid if they bring up resort fees. "I've been Diamond for 12 yrs and I didn't know about resort fees".

    I find Bally's Diamond check-in pretty casual and very helpful, worse that can happen is they throw you out front with the rest of the unwashed masses lol.

    If I was working the check-in desk and somebody gave me that line I would probably laugh my butt off. Anybody who has been coming to Vegas that long either 1) knows very well what is happening in the city or 2) is hopelessly lame. Take your pick!

    I believe resort fees come up with your reservation at check-in and your status when you made the reservation will have no bearing on them. I believe you will have them added to your bill.

    We were just there Feb 2-4 at PH. We had 2 rooms and both of our diamond status had expired Jan 31. The rooms had been booked in January when we still had status. Went to Diamond check in and no resort fees showed on the reservation. No resort fees, no problems.

    I just spoke to Hunter about this very same thing a week ago. He said if you were diamond when you booked the room, you would not have to pay resort fees.

    I hope this is true. I was Diamond when I booked on Jan. 31, but not diamond now. Guess I will find out for sure soon.

    I had the same scenario 2 years ago, booked a comped room at Flamingo while Diamond for an April stay and my Diamond status expired prior to my trip. No resort fees were on my bill, check in clerk never said anything about it at all. I was told the resort fees were based on your status when you booked the reservation prior to my trip and that's exactly what I experienced. Have a blast!
