    6 nights in Aria Corner suite. First time at Aria normally stay at Bellagio.

    The room was nice and comfortable.
    Elevators being in the middle of the casino was convenient.
    Having pizza place open late or Patiserre 24 hrs was good.
    Casino floor was nice. Liked the vibe. Multiple bars, lift bar being 24hours. I know I have heard that Ari referred to as not very lively. The casino was busy and hopping the whole time I was there.
    Casino location was convenient. Finally after lots of trips I have the Crystal mall maze figured out, not sure why it was so difficult to comprehend but I finally got it!

    I think Aria may be the new home for a while.

    This one is my favorite feature, to be honest. Bellagio is beautiful, but if you wind up in the spa tower, it's a hike and a half to get out there.

    Also, Aria is less lively by design. It's a great property, but people go to Bellagio just to see Bellagio, which makes it far more crowded. Though Aria gets crap for being farther back from the Strip, it's actually no worse than Bellagio. I also like that Lift Bar has VP, which Petrossian does not (and I personally think their bartenders are better than Petrossian or Baccarat Bar). And my favorite part is that most of the restaurants open earlier in the day. If you want to get lunch at Bellagio, you have very limited options; at Aria, pretty much everywhere other than Catch, Blossom, Jean-Georges, and Carbone are open by 11:30am.

    Omg, I can't stand Bellagio hotel lobby -- it's always jam packed with people who have no business there.. just sitting around because it's a free couch.

    I'm so glad you enjoyed Aria. You just named most of the reasons we jumped from Bellagio to Aria years ago as our go to hotel in Vegas. See you at Aria!

    Glad you liked Aria...I also like the Vibe and do not find their machines any tighter than other strip properties.

    While they're not as quick to add new machines as Cosmo, they are at least sprinkling them in..Tarzan Grand and Timberwolf Grand finally installed..

    See you during the year.

    Staying Aria for the first time for the first $500 buy in. I've never enjoyed the gambling at Aria. I haven't won there like EVER. However,,it's part of the $500 buy in slot tournaments...Buy in for 3 of them, get the 4th finale free. So my MB host has given me her blessing to try Aria for the first $500 buy in for the year. And YES,,,my MB host can book me in,,,but if you've ever been a guest at another hotel that your original host has put you into....sometimes you miss the comp that the ....Hey...bossman/bosswoman....do you have any fp I can tap into?...So I have a new host at Aria. I've not been successful at Aria gambling,,,so hope this trip turns it around....EVEN A SLIGHT BIT.

    See you there. The crazy, and unfair, policy for tournaments is that you don't get MLife FP or RC offers if you're there playing in a tournament. I have many High Platinum/Noir friends who all think that this is crazy. The good news is that the host has transgression to write off food charges :)

    This is a great tournament because it really is only a $200 buy-in because last place gets you $150 in FP each day.

    I've been doing the $500 buy ins for many years now...I met you quickly at B for the finale of the 2018...My host at MB has given me her blessing to go with another host at Aria for the first of the $500 buy ins. I'll do the next two at MB as I have been loyal to them since 2003,,,bringing down a ton of kids for EDC for several years...comping rooms for all of them...21st birthdays, MB cruises...shows for all of them...So I do have limo pick up, VIP check in etc..and $150 in food per day. I eat probably $50 a day. I've never been lucky at gambling at Aria,,,so this will be a new day. $200 buy in? I'll have to check in to that..I know I'm paying $500 up front.

    I think of it as $200 buy-in because you're guaranteed to get $300 in FP back just for playing. Hope we run into each other during the tourney - holding large checks in front of the player's club :)
