Leaving early from comped stay

If you have a comped stay for three days as part of a package of free play and food and only use two of those days, how do you leave? Just leave the keys in the room? Check out at the front desk? Call the front desk the next day, Use in room check out? Don't know if they would rather have the room back or would be pissed you left...

I don't think they care if you have to leave early. Just make sure to play enough so that they will invite you again in the future. Definitely go down stairs and check out, always good to square everything away, especially as they have your credit card on file.

There was a thread on another forum about this. It seems CET has started including small print on their offers that if you book an offer for room for 3 nights and say freeplay and then check out after one or two you may be charged for the room for the nights you didn't use it. I guess they've figured out that people are double booking rooms just to get the freeplay and then the room goes empty.

Can't say I blame them as they are a business and in the business to make money. They could have sold those rooms to other paying guests.

peachie, it's funny that you mentioned CET. A friend of mine was comped at Caesars a couple of weeks ago and said that he received an email the night before he was leaving asking if he wanted to check out online. There was a link and from there he could set up a check out time of 10, 10.30 or 11am and he'd be checked out automatically then. Just leave the keys in the room. I'm guessing this is a new service being offered and I straight away thought of people who may want to leave earlier than scheduled for whatever reason.

Of course, if the casino is expecting a certain level of daily play, there may still be implications. If nothing else, it will very likely affect your future offers.

by that I meant if you don't play much you wont get comp offers down the road. but for us an example of that is 2 comped nights (no resort fee even) at cosmopolitan that we are using in 2 weeks. wont do much gambling there as we didn't to begin with. will do our gambling at Mlife properties as that is where we usually stay. but free is free and couldn't pass up the offer

When I leave one day early, I will (1) not use the bell man to get my luggage out, and then (2) simply call the front desk and check-out telephonically around 10:00 a.m. on my scheduled departure date.

I recently participated in a BJ tournament at one casino. I was required to take a 3 night comped room. I did not sleep in it at all. I brought my gym bag to the room and left it on a chair. I put my toiletry bag in the bathroom. That was about the extent of my use of the room. I did not do very well at the BJ Tournament, but I won at the tables with real money! The casino does not really care if I stay in their room, just that I play enough outside of the tournament to justify the comp.

I have noticed the small print mentioning that minimum stay required for FP (my experience Mlife = 3 days). If you check out early bad things may happen (never ave checked out early) - impact future offers, charge for room, etc.

I will be doing this in the future - will just do what prev peter said - call the morning on ur check out day.

my offers from both Wynn and Palazzo include free play and in the small print the amount of free play is reduced for two nights. My last stay at Palazzo was comp for two nights and free play but we had a change of plans so called my host prior to arriving and asked for only one nights stay instead of two and she told me she would leave me as registered for two days (because they will not give free play for only one day) and I was to call her the morning we were leaving and she would check me out her self so that I was not charged for early leaving and would still get the free play for the two days. Check the fine print it will probably state a min of 2 days in required and give the reduced amount of the free play. Call a host when in doubt or call the marketing department, there should be a phone number on your offer.

Be careful. Drop the key-card, where instructed. If you sneak out, THEY will know, and that might impact the next comp'ed stay?

Stay in good graces, if there might be a "next time."
