We will be checking in at Aria around 9:30 am on a Thursday morning. We have never stayed at Aria so we aren't familiar with the room locations and views. I am hoping the early check-in time, day of the week and Gold MLife status can help our chances of getting a good room location, however I don't know what location(s) would be best to ask for. For considerations we usually like a strip view and would like to avoid real long walking distances to things like the elevators and the casino. What do you suggest?
