    Well it's come to the last night here, plan is to have a few beers on the strip tonight and finish off at Tuscany.

    In a related note, the Las Vegas High Roller was the subject of a question on "Richard Osman's House of Games" on BBC2 this week - with contestants having to guess its height.

    They were not displaying any upgrade prices at the desk, you will probaly be offered the chance to upgrade when you check in online, I was offered extra legroom amd premium. I took the extra legroom upgrade. Gambling not great, came out with a loss. Maybe just me but seemed a little tighter this time even in Tuscsny.

    You can download the Virgin Atlantic app, input your booking details and that will show you live prices for upgrades. They change infrequently but do change.

    How was the stay at Tuscany? I had heard there were no hosts left there, how did they handle back end comps? I am considering a first time stay there next year and was wondering about that process if there truly are no hosts anymore....

    I don't gamble that much to have a host so I don't know about that sorry, I noticed the office that the concierge used is now empty.
    It wasn't too bad really, I work in a hospital so I'm used to wearing them.

    Thanks to everyone for following along and I hope you all enjoyed my return to Vegas, my next trip will probably be in April sometime, I will be looking at Virgin when they do there New Year sale.
