    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.
