Another new $ grab they are implementing- Early-check in fees before 4 pm.Like $15 at the Rio and higher on the strip.
I got into my room about 2 pm this past Sunday,but desk clerk knew it was comped and I was holding a folded up $5 bill for him so was not charged.Not sure if it he thought it was a $20 or the comped room that did it..But did notice the check-in line at 4pm or so was huge..F'n huge.
This blows for the people on early flights from the East coast and get into Vegas early afternoon..and I believe CET wants these tired folks on the casino/restaurant floor for a couple hours instead of unpacking.It cannot be a housekeeping cleanup issue unless they cut half the staff,which may also be a possibilty..So another few bucks in tips to the bellmen to hold your bags outside.
and btw Internet fees were $12.99 a day and over at the Gold Coast $4.99...
It takes 2 bankrolls to travel to LV nowadays one non-gambling..
