This is a monthly blog put together by a Seven Star Member and Gambling Writer, Darryl McEwen and contains mostly CZR information, but also covers other casino information. He is usually hard on the things he sees wrong with Caesars properties and how they treat their best players but it is usually valid. Of interest to many here may be how he writes about how bad Revel is becoming quickly. This is what happens when you sell $69 rooms during the week and go for the party crowd putting 6-10 people in a room on weekends. And the legend of Revel continues.

Is bringing beer into your room against the law or some hotel policy? I have never had a problem with this, in Vegas or anywhere else (note that I have never been to Atlantic City). Certainly if you're causing a noise issue, that should be dealt with on its own. But buying your own booze, bringing it up to your room, and enjoying it there? I don't see the problem.

I dont know, I remember renting a meeting room at a major hotel once and I couldnt bring in m y own refreshments. I had to get it from them.

I guess the theory is that if people are eating their food, and drinking THEIR drinks....then the damage caused by the spilled food and drinks are ok since they are making a profit from it.

There must be something in hotel policy about this....but I could be wrong.

If a maid has to spend an extra 30 minutes cleaning up the aftermath of room service food and beverages...no big deal as far as the hotel is concerned.

But cleaning up massive leftovers from the chinese resteraunt down the road, and the liquior sotre down the road is not something they should be requied to do.

Of course the hotel doesnt say a word to you if the maid has to remove a pizza box and 6 empty sixpack cans.

But I would think they have the option to limit outside food and drink....Just a guess.

Yeah, if you leave a huge mess well beyond the normal for a hotel room and don't clean it up, you're an asshole. Unless you leave a huge tip for the maid :) But as for the actual bringing of drinks into your room...it's the frugal choice :).

Note that I would be much less likely to do this in a casino setting, as I can get free drinks while gambling.

I don't know if it's a law, but I've seen signs in most of the parking decks in AC stating that bringing in coolers is not allowed. However, I'm not sure if that means for the hotel, or for lugging them through the casino to go out to the beach (or both.)

bringing in tons of food and drink leads to much more than extra maid service. a keg of beer on the floor can llead to a carpert cleaning issue,, food crushed into the mattress and upolstery are an issue as well in a "party" situation.

I think the situation where 6 people share a room and invite others to the room, and you have 10 people partying , drinking, eating while drunk, and vomiting. Besides keeping the rest of the floor up all night....as careful as they might try to be...when you get lots of people and alcohol and lots of food together....you have a big expense brewing.

Kind of like a movie theater...you buy milk duds for 5 dollars and the price of scraping the ground in milkduds from the carpets is included in the price...and the movie theater doesnt care that you were careless with it. But bring it from the outside...and grind it into their carpet....and they have a rightfull issue.
