rv

from another mb. Take it FWIW

got a phone call from my host at revel--who had been my host at a previousproperty--and finally got some info--but take it with a grain of salt. my host is, of course, new, as are all the revel policies, so we won't know for sure until we get there (if then....). anyway: hosts have the discretion to comp your first two visits (room--so i'm booked for 4/7;

4/2 is 'soft' opening night). after that, you have to use your resorts

(rewards) credits, so, of course, i asked how much vp dollar through does it take to earn one credit; my host didn't know but will find out and get back to me--claims the comp rate is the best anywhere--we'll see. you also can convert credits to play right at the machine, one-to-one ( ! i don't see how that's possible if points are also easy to accumulate, but, again,

well see). there is only one card level, same for everyone, so apparently everything will be decided by recent play, credits in your 'bank', and host discretion--no living on past laurels. interestingly, the only way in is through the front entrance; there will be no boardwalk entrance. nice concept to try to keep supposed 'riff-raff out, but will mean more walking

if you don't use a car. just compare walking from taj front doors, out to street, over to revel, up to their front entrance, compared to walking the boardwalk from taj to revel. well, that's all i know for now. will follow up when i hear about $thru:credit ratio for vp. i hope others who are hearing from hosts will fill in/correct/add, etc. i'm sure it's going to be a *very* beautiful environment; but will the vp be playable (i didn't ask since i'm sure my host wouldn't know)? rooms are limited, so make your

reservations now, if you care. see you there. :)*

Revel has a main entrance via the porte cochere, which has walkways leading to the boardwalk. There are also multiple entrances from the self-park garage into the facility.

So there you have it. No entrance to Revel via the Boardwalk....

Just a tad inconvenient...

Aladdin in Las Vegas had a "bad" front entrance on its foot traffic facing side aka a very long walk...ask them how it worked out for them.

I guess there's a reason for that but that's like a casino on the Vegas strip not having an entrance on the strip front.

Hi jaysonrevel ~ Thanks for responding here. It might save some confused discussion here if you could give an estimate of how far that cochere “main entrance” is along any of those “walkways leading to the boardwalk.”

It would also be useful to know if those “walkways” are fully outdoors or enclosed in any way?

>>I think this may have "cracked the code"<< I believe you are obsessed with Revel. Go to a pharmacy and buy some NicoDerm to apply on 4/2/2012 and take some notes while poking around the property
