Which Vegas hotels have the boarding pass print kiosks?

On a few recent trips to Hawaii and Florida, I noticed that a number of hotels have internet kiosks reserved for boarding pass printing only.

There's usually some special application loaded on the PC that restricts you and only lets you access airline web sites. Of course, this can be bypassed, but that's not my point.

I'll be in Vegas this weekend and was wondering, in particular, if Mandalay Bay has one of these kiosks.

My last leisure trip to Vegas, I didn't take my laptop and the business center at Paris or Caesar's wanted like $15 for use of the business center or something like that. As a result, I got stuck with a C boarding pass on WN and had to endure a long 1 hour flight in a middle seat. Not very good for a gentleman such as myself....

Anyone know?

I have not been charged at either Paris or Caesar's for printing boarding passes or for having boarding passes sent to the concierge, however, I was a comped (VIP) guest. I haven't stayed at Mandalay Bay for several years but it seems like it would be simple enough to just ask your host to be sure that such a fee is waived. It seems fairly ridiculous.

if you have any status with a casino, they should be able to print your bp's for no charge.

This company - www.baggagecheckin.com will let you check your luggage with them as well as give you your boarding pass. They charge $20.00 and are available at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Venetian, and Luxor. I would think that this will grow in popularity to include most of the major hotels.

I recall seeing those boarding pass kiosks at the Rio. At the Diamond Lounge at Caesars, for Diamond level players, there are five PCs. During a recent visit to the lounge, I printed my boarding passes.

I was at Mandalay Bay a few weeks ago. The attendant at the Business Services desk (to the left of check-in) will print your boarding pass for you for free. You just need your ID and flight confirmation code.

I've done the same -- it was very easy.

I saw a kiosk this weekend at the shops at the Venetian. It looked like it was a $5 minimum to use the machine. I didn't look too closely.

SIMPLE ENOUGH !!! Just go online and check in and get an A (southwest) but don't print the boarding pass. When you reach airport print your passes from kiosk and you still retain your A !!
Tried it number of times and it works.

Saw the Venetian kiosk. Second floor, next to Ciao Souvenirs. $0.35 per minute and $1.00 for each printed page. Cash is $5.00 minimum and credit card minimum is $5.25.

not sure about machines specifically set up for printing boarding passes, but Ballys has a business center and for $5 you can use the computer for a certain amount of time (can't remember exactly how long but it's long enough to print a bp).

I despise Southwest with a passion, but some of you may be interested to know that at the Venetian you can not only print your boarding pass, you can drop off your luggage Southwest luggage. A sky cap from the hotel... now if only other airlines would start doing this!
