Will someone in your party use the $100 spa credit? Would you skip breakfast otherwise or eat a cheaper meal?
Thanks! We won't be able to enjoy the early check in and late checkout b/c flight times. Spa credit isn't that useful to us. The benefits that we really need is the upgrade and breakfast

If you have a suitable Chase card, you may be able to find a better deal in Vegas with their Leading Hotels (Luxury Hotels and Resorts Collection) program. At least I did.

I have to say that with the move to spa credits only across LV and the inability to reserve several hotels online, I've started booking through mlife instead. Room rate savings for my lowest-level membership status outweigh the breakfast benefit and what's effectively 50% off a massage (and the Mandarin Waldorf and 4 Seasons rarely give good upgrades).

This, and the fact that I can only seem to book and prepay the stay on AMEX FHR, after years of only having to pay for the first night in advance, has really turned me off using this service.

Breakfast credit at Bellagio

Bellagio $30 x2 breakfast credit: Does anyone know if this is a general dining credit that can be used at all times of day? Also do you actually get $60 a day if you are flying solo? Thanks in advance!

Same here, especially with the 25x tier points on room stays that no longer appear if you prebook with FHR.
Although there's STILL the "free" late check out and early check in benefits that mLife will nickel and dime you over.
Non-MLife properties (Wynn, Venetian, etc) are still a good deal with FHR though.

Just to be clear since I haven't used FHR in Vegas in a while ... Can you still call Amex and set up a post-pay reservation (not getting 5x MR but getting the tier credits)?

You can definitely still do post-pay / pay-at-hotel, either by booking online or over the phone. I can't speak to MLife credits specifically, but you would get regular hotel points from whatever chain (e.g., HHonors at the Waldorf).
