Earlier, I wrote on what a $20 tip got me in Vegas. Now, I’m going to show you what a $15 room looks like.
Not a $15 tip. A $15 room rate.
When I saw a $15 room rate at the Excalibur, I had to jump on it. For science I guess. I didn’t actually stay there, but I really wanted to know what a $15 room looked like.
And here it is in all its glory!
(I apologize for the dingy lighting. I could not get the lighting bright enough to take pictures and the blinds were pretty jammed open).
I was actually surprised that the bedspreads weren’t worse. It also smelled decently nice in there.
The bath products included shampoo, bath gel, lotion and a single bar soap.
The shower looked decently clean.
There was also an interesting view of the freeway behind the hotel.
And if I put my forehead up against the glass and tried to look straight down, I could see a pool.
The gentleman at the front desk seemed a bit confused as to why a Platinum Mlife was checking in there. He also wasn’t exactly sure how the Hyatt partnership worked. He said, I see you are earning credits with… Hyatt? Can I see your Hyatt card?
I realized he asked that because in Vegas you need to have a copy of your Mlife card. It isn’t like other hotel property types where you just automatically get benefits from it being on your account. You flash it pretty often.
I handed him my Hyatt credit card, which has my Hyatt number on it, and that was good enough for him.
The best part was the check-in packet included a $20 credit at a Luxor or Excalibur bar. If it weren’t for the resort fee, I’d be up!
