I came back from a long weekend at the GN. I was contacted by host #1. She arranged my room (and upgraded me), got us a limo, and set us up as a VIP so we coul cut all the lines. When it was time to check out she was gone for the day and host #2 took off every charge before we left in another car the he made sure the GN provided (not a limo). Each did right by us so I'm not sure who to contact when it's time to go out again.

For what it's worth, I've always been a strip snob but the people we went with liked downtown so I went. It was nice to get the VIP treatment. That's new in my experience.

FWIW..If the other host is a male and they are both the same rank, I would go with the
male host. I don't know why but the male hosts seem to be way more generous and take chances when over comping players. They also seem to have more connections when getting off property stuff like boxing tickets.

See it's garbage like this that keep perpetuating the myth that women are not equal and can't do the same job as a man. The cycle will never end with chauvinists like you with this point of view.

Perhaps you need some sensitivity training. I've taken the liberty of signing you up for your classes.

On their website they each have the same title. I can't go by gender because I've had to deal with women and men who were both excellent and incomeptent in every field. That part doesn't matter.

What's a realistic way to decide?

It appears you accidentally created two threads with the same OP, I responded to the other one. Thus, I will delete the other thread and move my post here which follows:

I'm not an expert on that at all and have no personal experience working as a host. With that said, I do remember that when I sold furniture is someone had a, 'Regular,' customer, (meaning bought from a particular salesperson on more than one occasion) then we were supposed to credit any further sales to that customer to the original salesperson if the customer had asked for them. Officially, we were supposed to do that all of the time, but we didn't because of the inherent advantage ($$$) that would give to salespeople who had worked there longer and just happened to have the same customer multiple times. Thus, if a customer specifically asked for a person, the person requested would get credit for the sale if they'd sold to the customer before.

With that said, I would suggest that you should contact the first host who set up your room and everything like that. People aren't going to be on the property 24/7, and you should not be ignored in your host's absence, so I would speculate the second host just took care of you as a courtesy.

With all due respect, there's a difference between opining that he made a chauvinistic statement and actually calling him a chauvinist. I'm not going to issue a Personal Insult ban for the statement, but just want to respectfully point out that the Rules are such that we should attack what is said rather than the speaker.

I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark when I say I think boz was being sarcastic.



Probably deal with the first host going forward, unless you preferred the second one. Did one of them contact you?

I can only go with what I have noticed over the years of dealing with hosts. I have many examples where I have proven to myself this is the case.

One example was at the Tropicana: I ask my female host if I can get XY and Z. She said she could only give me X(none of what I asked for). I declined the x and said, "perhaps later". I waited until she got off and asked a male host for XY and Z, he gave it to me without even balking.

Another example: My GF and I, put in the same coin in, same game, same play time, I lost slightly more. My GF asks her female host and she gets only offers $100. I ask my male host and he offers to give me $300.

Comparing hosts with other AP's, it's not even close. The males tend to give more when it comes to discretionary comps.

Sure I have had some overly generous female hosts, I remember Tropicana in Laughlin, the female host gave me way more than I expected and then some, I was really shocked, "the value" was over 50% of what I lost and I didn't play long at all.

If that's the case, I apologize for both the misinterpretation of his statement and the soft reprimand.
