Could There Be Any More Options on This Bellagio Pre-Arrival List?

Do you have a room booked at The Bellagio for an upcoming Vegas trip? Would you prefer to have a room near the elevator? You can select that on your Pre-Arrival Room Request list through MLife. You can also request an Express check-in, a crib, a room in the Spa Tower, a connecting room, a refrigerator, a roll-away bed, a pool view, and...Krispy Kreme?

A dedicated reader with MLife status sent us a screenshot of this crazy long pre-arrival request list when he was booking his trip at The Bellagio.

At first, we thought the long list was what you are offered when you book the Penthouse Suite but upon closer inspection, this seems to be a back-end website glitch of some kind as boxes include various travel agencies, corporations (presumably partnerships with MGM Resorts), credit cards, marketing promotions and good old-fashioned hotel packages. Indeed, many options don't make sense. Drill Down Room anyone? How about International Letter 1 and 2?

Still, the screenshot does give us an inside look at what's going on behind the desk when you check-in at a hotel, not just in Vegas, but anywhere. Notice the boxes for Prior Guest Inconvenience, Waive Resort Fee and Debit Card Open For Charging Privileges. So if you've ever doubted a hotel's promise to "make a note on your reservation", here's proof that they actually are.
