    I haven't been to the local Rivers for almost 5 months, last time was Halloween.

    Haven't been to Vegas since 12/3. Only gambled St Maarten light gambling in past 3 months.

    Only drank once every 6 weeks so far in 2016.

    Feel great, don't miss any of it. Except the people. Will enjoy it more when I return.

    Why not give a break a shot?

    Im sure you know, stay far far far away from online gambling habibi. Its worse than a brick and mortar casino.

    Lets try and get a group trip in July/August. My wife will be there also.

    Just take a break and regroup some

    Like me pphold, I'm not going to just go because I can. There is always a reason like a holiday, super bowl, MM, New years or birthday. See, right there are 5 trips. That's enough. My next trip will be probably late August and it will be a blast with something to look forward to. And NO ONLINE CASINO SITUATION!! EVER!

    I'll do a summary and explain the Aria situation. It is something if I didn't live it I wouldn't believe it

    With PGP and changes. I don't know who to blame. A manager at Aria said she will make sure all things will be great and I will have no problems.

    Latesr thing was this morning with me being tired and trying to sleep and housekeeping keep knocking and the privacy button would go off after I turn it on, it would just turn off? Don't get it

    I finally gave up and just left before 1pm even though I had a 3pm check out.

    I talked to my host who suggested that I don't go back to Aria. And the Manager at Aria in a indirect way said the same thing. LOL.

    I was not rude and neither was the employees at Aria this time. They just could not understand how things would go wrong with my stays.

    They put in specific notes I was not to be disturbed and I still was.

    Things that was suppose to get done was not done. And should have. I get that they was suppose to do that but forgot.

    Crazy???? I had very low expections on this visit. And they couldn't even do that.

    Ok no turn down. Not a big deal but make my bed at least. I gave housekeeping a $10 tip

    I'm suppose to get a Platinum letter was not given to me. I had to go back and get it Did not complain about any of this either.

    I did complain about being ignored at checkin with people cutting in front of me and the people behind me, and the front desk person not acknowledging I'm there.

    I ate at the bar since no table for one. Still a good dinner.

    But the thing I stated was I wanted a late check out since I was going to gamble the night before and will need sleep so do not disturb me the next day till after. 3pm. Since I had a 5:30pm flight.

    They could not get this one thing right.

    I just changed my flight and went home early.

    How hard is it to do not disturb me in the morning

    I told that to the manager to please let house keeping know not to come in or clean my room till after 3pm.

    Caesars SLS The Trop and Wynn never had an issue with this.

    Am I being too picky or just bad luck? Who knows?

    It was suggested that I stay at any other hotel
    and I get a car as directed to take me to and from the Aria casino and the other hotel but now there want you play where you stay

    I will say the employees at Aria has always been very polite and say we will make sure it does happen. I'm not mad at them like the past. Just very disappointed in this.

    Like others have said don't let it bother you and just move on. Don't get upset.

    Which I did not just told the management what happen and I left. Think they did me a favor. I was back on tilt and could have donked more this afternoon or stayed longer but thought it was time to go home and go home early.


    VM packer. MsBlackjax and others. Was great to gamble eat and hang out with all the nice people in Vegas.

    PGP is really going to change Vegas in a bad way. Let's hope the other casinos do not follow there lead in this

    i have the email to the managers of the hotel and Guest services. This was in the notes in my profile and that they should take care of me and make sure everything goes well and the last two chances I have given them have gone to crap.


    I'll worry about that later. Nothing can me done now.

    Just going to move on and take a long break

    Actually your problems with Aria are strangely riveting to me. I want to know how they can screw you over some more. Please stay there again in the future. They probably have a note in the computer that rewards managers for finding new innovating ways of fucking with you...

    Sorry again for the rough gambling trip pp, and we all know it will get better at one point or another. We are looking at a cruise in the summer to Bermuda, you should give that a try, as an alternate to Vegas. You can still get some gambling done on the ship, visit a beautiful Island, have some good meals and will give you a reason to be away, but not in Vegas. I do know the draw of Vegas, but if you wanted to try a different vacation maybe a cruise or Florida Road trip. Just a though for you.

    Wonder what will happen to all the high end restaurants who only survive due to casinos picking up the tab. If said casinos are only going to rebate on actual losses rather than theo. At some point something will have to give.
