    My Trip Report

    We had a trip full of adventure:
    Check on Saturday at 6:30 pm went smooth. Asked for the Treasured Experiences coupon book and they were out of them. :mad: tryed the desk daily and they didn't have any all week. [​IMG]
    found a message on the machine when we came in the room already, as luck would have it we got an offer on the house when we left home. hum. Had it faxed, cost $6.00 to receive a fax, and $10. to send [​IMG] So then went and got some food in the terrace cafe after getting our line passes from the Slot Hostess. Good dinner.
    at the Terrace Cafe.
    Then played a little, didn't win big, but, went to bed with $200. more than I had when I got off the plane.
    Sunday. we went to the Palms. that we had heard so much about. Once again we were not impressed with it. It was very "Sam's Town" ish.
    Left there and ate at the Bellagio.
    Monday met with the realtor and got signing underway for the condo we were to close on on Friday 4/18. then back to TI for pool lounging.
    Tues. bought a 3 day pass for the spa and enjoyed the whirlpool there and the great smoothies and fresh fruit there. Even brought back to the room some fruit for the hubby.
    Wed & Thur. we pooled by day. and played by night at the TI and Bell, and a little at the Mirage. I was making out like a fat rat on the penny machines. I love putting in a $10. and cashing out at $95. did that alot. Still haven't dug into my own $$ yet. still playing with Las Vegas $$. that was a good thing.
    Hubby wasn't so lucky.
    Friday, we closed on the condo, and ran around with that and got the keys at 5:00 pm on Friday. so we decided to fly back today (sunday) instead of Saturday as planned, Funjet charged us an extra $50. per person to do that. it was worth it as I wanted to clean the condo and stock the fridge, etc...
    The flights were great. and we did very well with our comps too.
    We stayed for 8 nights,
    2 nights comped. $250.00 food and bev. comped. and my $50. to the spa was comped too.
    The other nights in the tower deluxe corner room we paid $55. per night. We rented a car from US Rentals, on Paradise BLVD. and got it for 7 days and paid a total bill of $145.00 for a Nissan Altima. 4 dr.
    Our bill was high at the hotel due to alot of calls and the faxes.
    All in all we had a good trip and came home with 1/2 the $$ I left with. so we were are now condo owners in Vegas, and planning the move for the 3rd week in May.
    Thanks for letting me share,
