    Back to my room to pack and move to D. Three nights is the worst length of stay. Four nights and I unpack. But three nights - I never bother and somehow the room becomes a disaster. How does all of that stuff fit in my bag?


    At my happy place - Vue Bar to chase the progressives. 3FBCDB55-A1EA-4F68-BDF1-8A52140C9017.jpeg

    It’s hockey time. Hockey + VP + Beer = Best Day Ever

    Someone hit quad progressive for $48. I managed this - not too shabby.

    Banger Brewing with the family.

    0078C19B-A6EC-4FA3-8840-C376D845B43D.jpeg

    Still no room at the D. This morning the young man at the desk apologized and said rooms might not be available until check in time at 3. They’ll call me when my room is ready. Ok. No big deal. At 3:30 I go down to check again and the room still isn’t cleaned. I ask the girl if she knows when the room might be done - she just shrugged. Still no phone call. Hoping I can get a room and change before my 5pm reservations at Andiamo - otherwise I’ll be classing up the joint in my Dilly Dily t shirt.

    Down $100 on VP for the day. Lots of near misses. And a number of good hits. My Royal is just out there waiting for me - I can feel it.

    You either played 12 hours of vp in order to get all of those quads and near misses or you had an incredible session.
    The D sucks. To make you wait that long for a room is unacceptable. I would get @notfromconcentrate on this immediately. By the time he's done you'll have a suite...for a week.

    If gambling goes South hang around more random drunk guys and tell them who to wager on.

    Unless I really had to be in the room, this would be a pretty simple discussion by using a little comparison...

    If the guest is a no-show for the stay (I.e. they’re supposed to be there but aren’t), they’re usually charged the first night’s room rate plus tax. There are no acceptable excuses, because the guest knew what their obligations were when they booked.

    If the hotel room is a no-show for the “guaranteed” time (I.e. it’s supposed to be ready but it isn’t), then shouldn’t they pay/comp the guest the first night’s room rate plus tax? There certainly aren’t any acceptable excuses here either, because the hotel SET the obligations. So they’re obviously familiar with them.

    So, obviously they have to comp you the first night's room rate plus tax. That's a given, it isn't up for discussion. Rules are rules.

    Now, comping a room rate for a room that ultimately gets checked into is no simple matter. Upgrading on the other hand, is much simpler.

    So if you provide the “I want a refund or an upgrade” ultimatum, it’s pretty easy to figure out which one they’re going to go with.

    Boom, suite.

    Then follow that up with the “I lost all this time because my room wasn’t ready, can I have a late check-out?”. You can’t argue with it, and late check-outs cost them nothing anyway.

    Boom, extra time.

    So, maybe not a week. But this would be a breeze to leverage into a favourable upgrade, even if you don’t have my half-Jewish genetics that make productive complaining come naturally :)

    Lady next to me just hit a $210 straight flush. She is very excited. I’m very jealous.

    It's official. I'm old. Saturday nights on Fremont are just too much for me. Too many people. Too much noise. Too much everything. I retreated up to my room to recharge and relax for a few minutes - may or may not make it back downstairs for more. My notes say I'm down $175 on ~$6,000 coin in. It doesn't feel like I played $6,000 worth of VP (at quarters!), but that's what the math says. :confused: Aunt and Uncle convinced me to come over for Easter dinner and to watch the VGK game tomorrow - so I'm thinking I'll spend the morning seeding Downtown Grand and then head out to Henderson.

    While you're playing/drinking, how do you keep such detailed notes on your coin in? Are you counting the # of hands or something?

    Ha! l don't think you can be that 'old' .... your NHL picks are all teams from non original .... lol.

    Anyway, enjoy Easter dinner with the relatives. You can always root for the Leafs (original 6 eam) or cheer for the VGK ... they might win.

    Have a great Easter weekend/dinner and go get 'em after ....
