If anyone is going to be in Vegas next weekend (and who doesn’t need an excuse to go to Vegas!), check out this event to learn and socialize with other in the travel community. I’ll be speaking first at 2:30. It is a free event!

Damn, I live in Vegas and I will be out of town, would love to be there, but I have to play some poker tournaments in Florida.
Another “DO” is in the works!
Hey Alan! Nice job presenting at MtM’s VegasDO. A few updates…Mlife Platinum can also access the lounges at Mandalay Bay and Delano (neither has beer), Bellagio, Aria and Cosmopolitan require hard coding like Mirage, and Mlife tier match status from Hyatt has updated (I’m good through Sept. 2016).
If you recall, I gad asked about double dipping with Hyatt and Southwest at Mlife properties. Are you certain about this? Although my stays last weekend have yet to post, I tried getting retro credit for several stays in July and was told it’s one or the other. Thanks again!
Thanks for the update!
I have been getting double dip stays with Hyatt and Southwest… but maybe this is a glitch?
Where is the lounge at Mandalay? I have heard there is one at Delano but didn’t realize there was a separate one at Mandalay.
Mandalay’s lounge is immediately before the check-in area behind frosted double doors. Delano’s is to the left of the check-in area.
As for double-dip, will wait for postings from Luxor and Monte Carlo and advise.
Quick update. After calling twice and being told both times that double dipping isn’t possible (for a few past stays in July), both Hyatt and SWA posted from my stays last week. Clearly a glitch, but a welcome surprise. Nice catch!
Thanks for the update! Glad they both posted, even if they aren’t technically supposed to!
