    Bringing my daughter and her fiancé to Vegas for their first time in May. I'm trying to decide between Aria and Mirage. I would probably start with the king deluxe at Aria, and strip view room at Mirage. Is there a good chance with the $20 trick at either property. How do the pools compare. Neither of us are very big gamblers, just like food, drink, people watching and sight seeing. We will be there May 8-11.:peace: We have frequented Harrahs properties in the past, and haven't been getting very much in the way of worthwhile offers, so it's time for a change.:drunk:

    Thanks

    I would bring them to Aria. The location is great (near mid-strip). I stayed at Mirage once about 2 years ago. The rooms are nice, but need updating. Aria is modern and updated.

    I've stayed at both a ton of times.

    The Aria is definitely my favorite casino/hotel in Vegas so I may be biased a bit. But, the Mirage is my old favorite casino/hotel in Vegas.

    There's really no comparison. Aria is far nicer than the Mirage.

    The Mirage definitely has the better pool option though.

    The restaurants at the Aria are far better. Even their cafe kicks @ss. Javier's is one of my favorites. So is Julian Serranos. Though, I am a huge fan of Japonais at the Mirage. Aria also has a Starbucks in house and the workout facilities in the Aria are far better than the Mirage workout facilities.

    Actually, overall, I'd say the only thing Mirage might have on the Aria is the pool and cheaper table minimums. Everything else, from location to room quality to the spa and workout facilities, restaurants, everything... much better at Aria.

    But, you'll pay more at Aria for it too.
