    That is a big booty hookers butt print if I've ever seen one....well played by your subconscious mind blocking out all the S&M action to protect your inner child....you should file a 5-Star TripAdvisor review on Aria right now for making a bed so well it can take that kind of punishment and almost still look made.

    Turn Down Service INDEED!!!

    It's irritating how the very few perks you have as Platinum (including turndown) don't even get delivered anymore. Just a lack of service. It might be a small thing, but a lot of small things add up, and Vegas is a competitive town, even if less so today.

    Sorry about the tilt, pphold. But great food pics! Carbone is top of my list.

    I was at Aria but got crush fast. Could not get any traction to make a comeback there. Plus location wise it is all the way north of strip. If anything I would have stayed at SLS.

    If I wanted no hassle no problems. SLS has been great.

    The casino is always empty. Could be good or bad.

    Wanted to meet with fellow board members.

    Aria is centrally located.

    I was at Caesars too long, and wanted to give Aria a shot.


    I can understand these are small things, and I'm being more picky than most. But keep in mind. Never these same issues at Cosmopolitan Wynn and SLS. Caesars has been slipping a little but still not as bad

    I talked to the front desk manager and she emailed my host and my host called me

    She finally suggest that I don't stay at Aria, and she would book me any other place but. I need to give the play at where I'm staying.
    MLIFE is more strict in that they want you to play where you stay.

    We talked about PGP it is really bad now.
    Good thing I've known her for so long. She was surprised how I knew so much about PGP.

    They have new guidelines and one of them is comps on Actual losses.

    It use to be Theo or actual. Now it is actual
    Losses.

    We talked about Vegas MGM does not give express comps on table play.

    Thanks Dannyocean. It is but Vegas is changing fast. They want profits so either paying customers or loses at the tables and not Theo as much.

    Still a great place to visit. I had a great time this trip. Losses sucked but it is what it is.

    Thanks. But this town is not built on winners.

    What can you do.

    I took a big lose from the start then won and was so close to the full recovery but lost it at the end. I needed this in reverse.

    This is very true. And you bring up a good point about the paying customers ... We hear so much now about the "sunk" spend or "non-gaming" revenue being increasingly dominant on the Strip. I'm part of that -- I tend to pay for more because I like the luxury, don't mind paying for it, and don't gamble a ton by comparison to others. At the same time, when you're paying for status and perks, essentially, there is less margin for error when screwing up. That is, when you're paying for the service, you expect to get it. You can't be sloppy about it, then shrug it off by saying, well, it was a comp anyway. No, you've got to up your game. This is where MGM is falling down, I think.

    Sorry it wasn't a winning trip but there is always next time! Positive thoughts! Great food pics and the frozen hot chocolate is always a favourite of mine.
    Safe travels home

    Thanks for the TR. I hope you have better luck next time. I enjoy your TR. Im also with you on the service you should be receiving especially at your level of play. Little things add up for the experience and I also feel you've been short changed on the experience more than once through various TR.

    I also want to say that you are the food porn king! I love all the gambling, but your food pics and reports from eateries are #1. Either we have the same taste in food love or Im just a pig!! Thank you for sharing with us.

    Why house keeping keeps knocking

    Hey, last time I was there I noticed the same thing!! I wondered who turned it off. They must be programmed that way.

    The next time they come to your door, answer it buck naked. They will leave you alone after that.
