Travel Blog (Vegas Adventure Part 8)


So I was playing poker on Friday when Allegiant Airlines called me and said that my booking at the Palazzo was bumped.

Hmm.

I don’t know how this happens. They said rooms often get overbooked, so I just went with it. Allegiant Airlines apologized for the inconvenience and offered me to move me to the Cosmopolitan (more expensive hotel) or the Wynn Tower Suite (more expensive package) and they would cover the difference.

Pretty sweet. 


So I went to check in, and discovered when I got to the desk (Sunday morning is busiest check-in day due to all the check-outs and waits going on according to the employee) that I went to the wrong area, the resort check-in instead of the tower check in, which is by the south entrance.

What makes the tower better? No resort fees (score). Complimentary breakfast (score). Access to the VIP pool. I think every room comes with a free ticket to “showstoppers” the musical. There is twice a day service to the room. 


So that is the hallway up to my room. A noticeable difference than what I had been crashing at on my daily Priceline checks. 


My room is pretty nice. Everything is color coordinated. There are automatic curtains and lights. The ceilings are high and the air smells great. This has to be the most comfortable bed I’ve ever stayed in at a hotel. I slept through 3 alarms because I slept so good. 

The room is furnished with a little seating area and desk. Other hotels might have this but the quality is considerably higher here too. (On the strip, I’ve stayed at Monte Carlo, New York New York, Tropicana, Mandalay Bay, and the Palms) 

The bathroom is the nicest I’ve been in at a hotel in Vegas: Double marble sinks, large bathtub with a tv in the bathroom, with a complimentary tub of items that blows other places away.  

Of course there is the snack bar. If it’s late, and you are hungry, you can simply snack there instead of walking your ass to CVS to save a few bucks. On average it was around $7-9 for most of the items. 

That’s me laying down with the curtains opened. 

Out my window, I could see the pool down below. The VIP area is the higher level. The pool is heated to keep it around 80 degrees or so year around. 
Looking up from there is the Wynn Golf course. Looks pretty nice to me. There were not too many golfers when I looked. 

More to come on the stay here as the week goes. Wynn is an awesome hotel, and Allegiant was pretty awesome for making up the difference and putting me at the Wynn Tower Suites.
