Somebody noticed something in the FAQs for the Virgin Las Vegas: you won't be allowed to bring in outside food or drink. The reasoning is, "We have plenty of restaurants and 24-hour room service."

It turns out that not only did the Hard Rock have the same policy, but so do the Wynn and Encore.

If the Hard Rock had that policy, they didn't enforce it.

The only rule we saw enforced was at one of the Vegas resorts we stayed at Oct/Nov 2020, the bellmen would not cart any food or drink - we had to carry these ourselves, and this was a Covid era rule, nothing to do with any policy against bringing in food and drink.

When we arrive in Vegas we are typically carrying dozens of bottles of health drinks that are hard to get inside the hotels. The bellmen carry all of our belongings, except as noted at the one resort. No one has ever objected including at the casinos you mention above. While these bottles aren't exactly visible in the insulated bags we put them in, also sometimes we bring a 2.5 gallon container of spring water for the tea we make in the room in our stainless steel boiler, and it's obvious what that is and no one has ever stopped us from bringing the water upstairs.

We bring our own water because some of the resorts hand out water freely in their VIP and some do not. Also some VIP rooms have gone dry post-pandemic and have nothing in there, no food no beverage, and at those resorts it's just easier and more convenient to cart in your own water.





That tea bar was set up in the suite we stayed in for a solid month last trip. This pic was taken early in the Adventure; we had just arrived. By the end, No puddles of glazed catsup on the bureau or Shards of broken glass embedded in the wall plaster a la Fear and Loathing, but definitely a lived in look.

I believe that rule is more common than most would know, I have only seen it being loosely monitored in Laughlin during river days when family's bring in cases of beer and food to hang out by the pool.

The rule may be common. Enforcement is not.
