How do I ask for a new host?

Im RFB at Bellagio (platinum) but don't really like my host. Given this needs to be handled delicately, how do I request a new one? Who do I talk to? What do I say? Thanks.

My host hasn't done anything in particular; he is just indifferent- which should not be the case given the fact that I drop quite a bit of $ at The B.

I am not crazy about my host at Bellagio, I would not want to hurt her feelingI have know her for about 12 years. She is nice but.........................

How do you go about this without hurting anyone's feelings?

.......I think you're going about it all wrong. Instead of you ditching her, why not have her ditch you? Start calling her up and giving her sob stories about the economy, your life and your pocketbook, then ask for a comp trip with all the trimmings to cheer you up and tell her you won't be able to drop much coin though and when she refuses, she'll drop you on someone else or back into the unassigned pool.

You never know, you may get a good trip for nothing or you'll get a new host which accomplishes your goal.

OR......just tell her the truth that you would be more comfortable with someone else, thank you very much.

See.......the truth is even easier to write

Maybe there's somebody else on this board who has a host they like at the B. A lot of times a referral is a good way to change. I wish I could help you but I don't gamble there.

The other thing you can do is just go to the host desk next time you're there and put your feelers out for a new host.

Good luck.

maybe your not gambling enough to merit anything from your host

i would talk to him first and ask why your not receiving anything

you will then get the reason

no harm in requesting a new host ...but they will see you already have one

Although it sucks your going to have to be fairly honest, the last thing another host wants to do is take another host's client. If was me I would I would find out who their boss is. Sometime the website shows the chain of command and sometimes not. At any case get a name from the website or call Casino Marketing and ask for them and explain your situation and ask to be assigned another host. Not only can they help with your request, they are also best equipped to handle things from both the old and new host perspectives.

i know when im going to wynn or v/p i just phone and tell them the date

limo pick up salon or lago media suite complete rfb so if you gamble highstakes there is no problem then getting rfb

i dont know what your bets are but $ s not big ,,,my wife plays slots and her minimum is $25 and she doesnt want a host and been approached many times and she just tells them my host name now when you say you won $$$$$k and up or lost you will have no trouble with RFB and any suite

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR HOST
