Aria Sky Suite "Check-in", but not in suite... ?

    We've been in a Sky Suite twice (loved it), but this time was comped a regular ("deluxe" ;) ) room. According to my host, and my confirmation, we have Sky Suite check-in owing to being apparently in that part of the complex:

    Requested Room Type: Deluxe Room

    Your reservation includes a complimentary stay, $100 food and beverage credit and Sky Suite check in.



    I called VIP services at Aria and they seemed confused by that, saying that only those staying IN a Sky Suite have the ability to check-in there. That makes total sense to me, BTW ! I emailed my host, including relaying what I had been told. I was assured that we would indeed have Sky Suite check-in.

    Having said that, I have been mis-led in the past (and I told my host this) once at Beau Rivage and once at Bellagio, when we were not in suites but had been told (not on confirmation that time) by my host that we could check in there. They were able to accommodate us anyway both times, but at Bellagio the person behind the desk was vocal enough about my not being eligible to check in there so that other guests waiting there also heard this. That's right up there with what swimming in cold water tends to do to guys... :eek2

    I'd rather not have an embarrassing repeat of that, and my host assures me I won't (I even suggested just going to the invited guest check-in area).

    Thoughts?

    With Aria, you just never know. I have had enough bad past host experiences that I would not necesarrily trust what one of them tells you.

    That being said, earlier this year, I stayed at Aria, booked in a corner suite (which I'm pretty certain does not qualify as a "sky suite") and I was still taken to the sky suite checkin (near baccarat and Lemongrass) and had access to all those services while staying in a corner suite. So it could be legit.

    I should probably have added that my host is off-site/corporate host (New Jersey as I recall).

    Thanks

    Unless you have a Sky Suites key, I'm curious as to how you'll get into the check in desk area, unless you're dropped off there by your transportation.

    you can obviously get in there since you have to be able to get in there before you check-in and have a key.

    Yes, there are regular rooms in the sky suites side. When I go solo, I get a regular room as I don't need the extra space.


    For the OP:
    Do you have limo pick up at the airport? if you have limo pick up, you will be checking in at the sky suites check in.

    Yes, it's a limo.

    Good to know - that's the one "catch" that I can now take off my list.

    Thanks

    Exactly. You get dropped off by transpo. After that, I flashed my key at the security guy maybe once. They were not very attentive

    There are definitely regular rooms in the Sky Suites section but they are not really bigger and nicer than the regular rooms. They look just like the regular rooms but are actually a tiny bit smaller (at least the one I used was, but that might be because it had two queen beds in it).

    I know this for a fact because on my last trip in July my Sky Suite was not ready when I arrived at 9:30am, so the reservationist was kind enough to offer a regular room for me to use until later in the day when my suite was ready (which of course I took her up on).

    The main purpose of these rooms is if people want to add a bedroom to their sky suites - there is a door that can connect to an adjacent Sky Suite.

    I was surprised to find out there were regular rooms in the Sky Suites but once I saw the connecting door, it all made perfect sense.

    interesting, I didn't know these were connectors. all the big hotels have them to turn a 1BR into a 2BR or a 2BR into a 3BR, but as far as I knew, none of the places rented them out separately. they reserved them for the people using the main suite. so I'm surprised that they just rent these out.

    On a recent visit, we checked in at the Sky Suites area. BUT, our room was elsewhere. We had to walk out and go to the regular elevators.

    Strange.

    Interesting!

    So I'm guessing a Sky Suites limo picked you up?

    (Or are all the Aria limos the same??)

    All the Aria Limos are the same.

    A Limo pickup does not always mean a SkySuites stay.
    I have stayed in a Corner Suite several times and had Limo pickup and return to the airport arranged by my host.

    Understood.

    Where did you check-in for the Corner Suite?

    Thanks

    Invited guest section at the front desk.
    I will be there for NYE and doubt that they will put me in SkySuites as all the BIG players are in for that party.
    I'm gonna ask my host for a SkySuites checkin though so I have access to the lounge.
    I hate standing in line for coffee in the morning with a hangover.

    For my trip next weekend, I have limo service and a corner suite and was told by my host that they are cracking down on the Sky Suite check in and I would have to go to the invited guest line out front. In 12 previous visits with limo service & corner suite, I was able to use Sky Suites check in with no problem.

    Interesting...

    I'm guessing the limo driver will be appropriately "in the know" and get us to the right place.

    They will know where your room is.
    If you come in the back way through a secured gate you are in the SkySuites.
    Front entrance means regular hotel.
