    I think you can get it for less than the 600,000 tier points OP quoted. It’s available to me for weekends with 48,000 coin-in (over 3 days), 166,000 TC & platinum. I made one trip in 2019 & nothing since.

    The Mlife comp value of this suite for 4-nights 9/18 to 9/22 is $1,552. So burns a lot of comps.

    Thanks everyone. Just want to make sure I’m not boring you all. Ha. Put a fork in me I’m done. Played Dancing Drums forever. Always forget to take a pic of my winnings but I just shove them all back in. Have reservation at Mon Ami at 9:00. Let’s see if it happens. I’m so comfy in this suite I want to stay.
    Flight at 5pm. Host gave me late check out.
    One negative out of all the positives. No room service for this lazy gal. First world problems.

    Have a great last day! I love room service......was sad that it had been cut from some of the CET hotels last year.

    If they are not offering room service will they allow one of the delivery services to bring it to your room or at least the lounge? Would seem to be a reasonable accommodation and it is not your fault there is no room service. Thanks for the TR. I am going to wait on the vaccine before getting on a plane, so you are braver than I.

    Enjoying your report. Glad you got your phone back. I’ve done that too! So far I’ve left behind a phone, glasses and an atm card in Vegas. Got the phone and atm back but not the glasses.

    I would have a hard time saying no to bottomless rose too!

    Enjoy the rest of your trip!
     
    Optimistic, might make Identity Gold?

    So happy you got your phone back......I had a moment in Vegas once where I thought for a few minutes I’d lost my phone and it was sheer panic.

    Enjoying your TR.....good pics and info! No doubt, others are reading and enjoying, as well IOW, "you're not talking to yourself" :)

    When I stayed in that type of room (last year), there was a charge for the FIJI and coffee kits. Maybe they dropped them from the mini bar menu?...hope so. I thought, at the time, they should incl. them in the suite w/no charge.

    I hope you enjoy your last day and get some good hits. Thanks for taking the time to write and update.

    Enjoyed the report! Especially liked seeing the MB Penthouse Suite pics...

    We usually stay at Aria in the summer and Luxor in the winter. We may mix it up; I have an offer for the Penthouse Suite at MB now...not nearly your coin-in I don't believe...I would say less than $2,500 a day for our last trip plus my table play (craps).

    Thank you all for the comments. Just wanted to make sure it was worth to keep posting
    I’m done gambling. Lost a lot. This girl doesn’t like to stop while ahead but what a great time!!
    I slept through Mon Ami reservation. Oops. It’s fine though as I don’t think I can eat another meal. Just went to the Penthouse Lounge and got some yogurt and coffee. There were a lot of people there getting ready to watch football in the theater room
    I’m going to stick to watching in my room. Just want to relax. Was able to get late check out by 3:30 as my flight isn’t until 5.
    Thanks again for following along. This was fun to post live and didn’t feel so alone lol

    @Jkluvvegas , this was awesome... You have successfully made me wanna go down to that corner that I used to call home and love!

    That’s the great part about this board. I’ll be solo starting tomorrow and it’s always nice to post something and know someone is “listening.” Great work, and thank you! :thumbsup:

    Had a buddy leave his phone on bubble craps. He left and 10 mins later, it was gone. He even tried to get security to look in the camera and track whoever took it. Nobody turned it in by the morning time (about 12 hours later) so he took a bus to look for a TMobile store to buy a new phone. All that took him about 5 hours because he refused to pay a cab at the time lol

    @Jkluvvegas Really enjoyed your report, especially since I don’t see too many people staying at Mandalay in the suites. Was great to see and liked the meals you picked out. What a relief about your phone, as I would have been panicking too!

    Finally catching up on TRs posted while I was in Vegas and then on a non-gambling vacation. So glad you decided to continue on with your report. I love TRs, especially from other solo travelers as I'm always looking for ideas for my next trip. Thanks for taking us along. That MB suite was fantastic!
