Paying For Preferences
These days, I check hotel rates via aggregators, not directly from the casinos themselves. Call me lazy for not prowling 73 websites to get the "Best Rates, Guaranteed". Or stupid for not using casino comp club cards. Or impatient for not standing on line getting my card replaced.
Anyway, I was looking at rates for Bellagio for an upcoming trip (yay!) and saw something that I don't recall seeing before - a $30 per day up charge to guarantee hotel room preferences.
King/Queen connecting, low floor... family of 5+.
Low floor, near elevator... impatient.
Non connecting, high floor... paranoid.
Queen/Queen connecting... party bro.
Low floor, pool view... pervert.
What was once standard hotel courtesy, is now an opportunity for monetization. Couple this with early check in, late check out, line hopping and resort fees, you're adding an extra $150 per night for your hotel stay. Bonkers!
