    Trips to Las Vegas:
    This is our anniversary trip so I am sorry if I ask too many room questions. We are going in early November. We booked Aria king room with "FREE" view upgrade so I am not sure that will allow us a strip view or not. Our stay is arriving on a Saturday around 7pm through Wednesday (depart). I would love a corner suite with Aria but the upgrade right now is about 390 more. I have no idea if the 20 trick would work or a pity upgrade? haha.

    Now I am only debating these rooms because I just realized that Caesars rooms are bigger and have a sitting area, table and desk area. Also a possible chance of getting a room with a fountain view would be awesome.

    So here are questions I have for Vegas vets with these rooms. Which is overall a better casino, room, friendly service, a more WOW factor, better chance of a upgrade?

    Last trip we stayed at MGM. We made a mistake and didnt charge anything to the room and probably missed out on a lot of possible points and comps. But, I was told that MGM properties are more likely to give me things comped off at the end of my trip - like even if it was a dinner or a night off would be good with me. I was told CET properties are more likely to do future comps but not comp anything off the bill.

    Thanks guys for the help

    Aria's room decor will be a little sleeker, but the Augustus room will be appreciably larger. I'm sure there's multiple You Tubes of both rooms.

    Aria's wow factor is the architecture overall and the lighting and flow in the casino.

    Caesars's wow factor is its enormity.

    Service is so subjective I can't answer. I'm not high-maintenance and I've never had a single issue with service in any of my stays, which cover 7 hotels. I act nice and tip, and I get what I want or need, when I want or need it. I didn't notice any difference in attitude or responsiveness between Aria and Caesars.

    The problem with getting a good view is that you're arriving on Saturday night, your chances are not great at either place, although if you're guaranteed a View room at Aria, that means you should at least be facing the strip.

    Back-end comps, it's impossible to say without knowing how much you play. Historically, MGM does comp better on the back end, but with the upcoming shakeup on Oct 1, nobody knows what will happen.

    If you like a larger room, and they're the same price, I'd go with Caesars.
