Can I book a room directly from the Hotel then just buy a four day wristband?
You MAY NOT purchase a room directly from our host property and also attend the Big Blues Bender.
We offer a limited number of four day wristbands to accommodate those persons who live in town, or own a timeshare or vacation property in Vegas, or persons that would otherwise prefer another property with accommodations we are unable to provide.
If you wish to stay on property, you may do so by purchasing a Big Blues Bender package.
It is violation of the terms as a four day wristband holder to also have a room at our host property. We provide the hotel a list of wristband holders to check against their system. If you are found in their system, you must either pay the difference between your wristband and an available package plus fees, or cancel your hotel reservation, or forfeit your four day wristband.
The Bender can only exist because we contract a set number of rooms at a fair price with our host property, and make a commitment to them that they will be filled for our event. Four day wristbands are simply meant to be a courtesy for our guests in the circumstances outlined above. Booking direct then purchasing a four day wristband in an attempt to deliberately undermine our pricing structure is a form of fraud, and we treat it as such. Persons who engage in this activity are no friends of the Bender!
2023 Exception : Owners of Westgate Timeshares may use their four day wristband while staying on site, and will not have their timeshare reservations or four day wristbands cancelled for possessing a four day wristband.
