    Aria mobile check-in

    Aria now offers mobile check-in.

    Has anyone used it? Is it possible to request a quiet room using mobile check-in or is any room assigned?

    I didn't use it, but my last trip, they sent me an email the morning of my arrival telling me I could "pre-check-in", provide them an estimated arrival time, and then "receive an email once your room is ready". I didn't see any signs specifically for this once I got to the hotel (and got a 50th-floor room anyway from Invited Guest check-in).

    As an aside, Aria's app is hilariously non-functional. The daily "Roulette Bonus Chips!!!" notification I get is absurd icing on the absurd cake.

    Thank you.

    I was told the following in an email from an Aria front desk person. I am assuming this is after I receive the confirmation email mentioned above.

    I wonder if mobile check is a desk or some sort of kiosk. I am still trying to figure out the benefit of mobile check-in.

    What if when arriving I walk up to the front desk and check in with someone there? How is that different? The only benefit might be finding out if the room is ready.

    I used it. The primary benefit is getting on a shorter line with most of the details already sorted out. There's no option (that I saw) to request a quiet room or use the $20 trick. However, given all of the stuff that was wrong with my room, you might be better off having a human select your room for you.

    Exactly my concern.

    With mobile check-in is the room assignment automated?

    The Aria front desk person mentioned that my reservation notes included a request for a quiet room. I do not know if that means with mobile check-in a human selects the room or not. Regardless, I could probably get a better room by checking in when I arrive. Schmoozing can be helpful with being given a better room.

    As mentioned it seems the only benefit is the check-in wait being shorter. That could be beneficial some stays, but probably not for most. I have heard at times the check-in wait can be really long which is probably why Aria has the mobile check-in.

    We usually arrive on a Monday when there is rarely a long wait so I can't see mobile check-in being much benefit to us.

    On our latest trip mobile check in was so worth it.

    We saved about a 30 minute wait in line at least. We were not assigned a premium room but we really did not care.

    The room was fine but if we did not like it we could have requested another one.

    We used mobile check in this weekend. We did avoid the line and check in was quick. Our room was on the 8th floor overlooking the A/C units, 2nd to last room at the end of the 2nd long hallway. Seems as though those who want convenience, get the worst rooms.

    The mobile check-in is a separate (MUCH shorter) line at the front desk. You do actually talk with someone at the desk, so I suppose you could possibly request a different one than the one that was already assigned.

    Anyone use mobile check in recently? I am checking in today and arrive after 10 tonight. They are sold out for my entire stay and I figure I am going to get a low floor when I get there tonight. I would love a way to try to secure a higher floor room before I arrive. Any suggestions?
