    I am going Oct 27th-30th!! Cannot wait

    Bellagio Suite with $350 in FP and $250 in RC. Playing Shadow Creek while there also. I've only stayed and gambled at Bellagio in my previous Vegas trips!! I live close to Biloxi so I am a Beau Rivage regular. I've contemplated staying at Aria and trying it out and Cosmo has reached out with 3 nights and a One bed terrace fountain view with $300 in free play. Should I keep my stay at Bellagio? Do a Sky suite at ARIA (never been in Aria casino), or do the Cosmo? I'm an Mlife guy but have heard cosmo treats slot players well.

    A bit more info, I'm in my early 30s and I am an old soul and love the fountains. Based on that info any feedback would be appreciated or recommendations. Which casino has the best patrons currently during the covid era. Not into all the fighting and BS some of my generation tend to partake in. Thanks in advance.

    I think staying at an MGM resort is still a requirement to play Shadow Creek, so keep that in mind. Every tee time I've ever had there has been canceled last minute though so I've never had the pleasure of playing lol

    Cosmo is my favorite. I love sitting on the terrace, something few other hotels can offer. Bellagio is certainly nice, but last time I stayed the rooms were a bit tired as well as the casino floor, but I think they've been doing work to the floor. Aria is nice too, rooms and suites are very nice. Good restaurant choices (non Covid times at least, don't really know what's open now). I don't love the casino floor layout, but it's certainly huge and offers a wide variety of games.

    You can't really go wrong with any of the 3. They're all relatively close as well, so you can easily check out and game at Cosmo to see if they give you any better offers in the future.

    If the golf is a deal breaker and you can only golf Shadow Creek with your current reservation then stay at B. But you mentioned fountains.... the exact reason we tried and went back now several times to Cosmo.....there is NOTHING like sitting out in your terrace watching them from that view. I personally like staying in the BLVD tower as it’s closest to not only the fountains but the strip is right there :) have a great upcoming trip, it will be here before you know it !

    Welcome to the asylum.. ... I mean the board. :)

    Did you book your tee time at Shadow yet?

    I would also look at a backup course just in case they do something screwy with your tee time or course maintenance or private parties.

    Good luck.

    We do have a tee time. All the overseeding should be completed my the end of this month and then the CJ cup is being played there the week before we are there in October so it should be in fantastic condition. We are playing Southern Highlands too, we have access through a member and have heard awesome things.

    I am leaning toward booking the aria sky suite strip view as the casino there looks very different. It is the same sq footage 1050 as the Bellagio Suite I am currently booked in at Bellagio. The Beau Rivage is Mississippi is very much like the Bellagio as far as decor so I am feeling like something different for this trip. Mlife is so good to me, but like what I see with cosmo. Might do two nights at Aria and one night at Cosmo to get my taste and feel of everything. I am loving this board so far, you guys rock!!!!

    Is a corner panoramic at aria a better view than the one bedroom sky suite even though its a bit smaller? for those who have stayed there. Considering its a comp for either room type and price not a factor..is the sky suite the choice?

    Sounds good. I was supposed to play on 21st but they moved some other private parties around and now not available.

    I would definitely go with Aria skysuite over Bellagio.. anything. :) and as you said.. The Beau is pretty much a dup of Bellagio decor.

    I would take any SkySuite over panoramic suite. Especially these days.. having the sky lounge and those dedicated elevators will be a huge benefit.

    @GamblingGolfer Sounds like we're similar here, as I'm also in my early 30s, love the fountains, and tend to have a few cocktails instead of raging. Definitely recommend Aria, as that is my home base. Cosmo is great to visit, as they have great restaurants and cocktails, but I like to stay at Aria, since you've got the MLife connection with all the other resorts, and it's much calmer than Cosmo. Though I will admit that I haven't stayed there, though my brother and other friends have. I've stayed at Bellagio too, and while the food is great, found the pool area and rooms to be a bit dated, and it was annoying to be bumping into all the tourists with strollers.

    Agreed with @Riders - while the Panoramic Suite is nice and offers more windows than the standard Aria suite, the limo transportation (with Ubers difficult to come by), Sky Lounge, and dedicated elevators makes the Sky Suites the winner especially right now. The Sky Pool is a nice perk too.

    Wednesday September 23-26th at Cosmopolitan with host offer I couldn’t refuse. Hit me up if there. Wrap around terrace suite premium view.
