    Hello ,

    This is my first post on the forum i have searched and could not really find any information relevant to the question I was wanting to ask .....

    I am staying in the Aria for NYE (28th Dec to 4th Jan)

    I have booked a King Deluxe Strip View Room but on reading reviews etc I am being more persuaded towards the Corner Suites

    am I best to wait until check in to ask about possible upgrades or too e-mail Aria Reservations ?? I take it this would be a busy time of year for them so I could possibly miss out and they wont have any suites available when I get there ??

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated !!

    Many Thanks ,

    Ross

    Hi Ross
    Dec is a quieter time on the Vegas. That being said, Aria is a popular hotel and might be busy.
    I would book the normal room and go for an upgrade (complementary) if available upon check in.

    That time frame will be VERY busy in Vegas and free or reduced priced upgrades will be almost non-existent. If you are wanting that specific room type, it may be best to book that room type ahead of time instead of trying for an upgrade at the last minute.

    I agree with Shock. While a couple of those days may not be busy, a good part of the NYE timeframe will be very busy - if you have your mind set for a corner suite ( the corner suites have awesome views and fantastic layout by the way) I'd bite the bullet and book now - the rates might be lower for some of those nights which could offset the usually higher rates and hard to find suites on NYE. A bird in the hand....best of luck.

    I agree with SHOCK. Over New Year's the hotel will be at full capacity and they will be selling that room category at top price and not providing them complimentary. Also, the length of time you are staying would almost take you out of the running for complimentary upgrades anytime of year - although it is possible - but more likely it happens for shorter stays.

    Arriving on the 28th, I don't think you'll even be able to buy an upgrade (at least not upon arrival) for those dates. Here are the full rack rates for a Corner Suite (mountain view) on those dates:

    If you want to get a taste of a Corner Suite while you're there, I'd suggest calling and having them slice the last two nights off your current reservation and then booking the Corner Suite for those nights as a separate reservation at the best discount you can find. You haven't said if you are booked on an offer or what it is.

    Agree with those advising you that Las Vegas (and Aria) will be a circus mob during some of your visit, with some of the hardest to get rooms and highest rates of the year. You have New Years, big sports betting and a weekend. Then CES starts on Jan 5, but the city usually starts to fill a day or two early. Serendipitous upgrades are unlikely. I do not think there's a lot of difference in the rooms at Aria-they're pretty much all good. The substantial difference is the difference between the Aria Sky Suites and Aria. If there is any way you can consider the $$ for a Sky Suite, you'll have the trip of a lifetime and be in one of the best hotels in the city (actually a little hotel within a hotel, filled with goodies and perks-very excellent). I'd either save money or just go for it completely-no trifling in between.

    I'm a regular weekend visitor to Aria, 3 or 4 times a year. Also a platinum level player and have never gotten an upgrade to the corner suites. I agree with those saying an upgrade is highly unlikely over New Years.

    I doubt you will get an upgrade to a corner suite for NYE free or otherwise if you wait till check-in. We've been going to Aria since it opened and last year got a corner suite upgrade for the first time. The standard rooms are great, the corner suites are fantastic. I think they are like drug dealers; the first hit is always free. We've become spoiled by the corner suite.

    One thing to be aware of; not all corner suites are created equal and it's virtually impossible to know which one you will get. The first one we got was probably the best, it had the small dining/living area off the entry with the 1/2 bath off it as well. From there was a hallway that had one side end in the bedroom and the other in the massive bathroom with the tub by the window. We were on a high floor and our view was Vdara. The next time we had a mountain view but the layout was totally different. It had a large entry area with the 1/2 bath, from the entry area all the way down through the living area was solid glass. It was quite impressive when you walked in but the living area was smaller than the previous one and missing the dining area. The bedroom was similar to the previous one but the bathroom was did not have a window. The last time we went we got a Crystals Corner Suite which an even more odd creature. The entry hall is huge leading to a living room overlooking the strip but it had an giant circular support pillar to one side so that is wasted space. The bedroom was big and the bathroom was probably as big as the bedroom.

    We're going again in 2 weeks and I'm hoping we get the format like the first time but who knows maybe it will be yet another variant.
