    Hi All...

    Visiting LV for my second time later this year. Last year when I visited I stayed at the Cosmo in a terrace room overlooking the Bellagio fountains.

    I'm considering stay there again, but am looking at other options as well. It's clear there is A LOT!

    It seems like Aria, Vdara, and Hotel 32 have come up as nicer options. I definitely want a pool, a great strip view, and casino.

    I guess I'm looking for opinions or suggestions. We're willing to spend a decent amount of money for nice amenities, but given it's only my second time, I'm definitely a "newbie"!

    Help please!

    Aria Sky Suites would be my recommendation.

    I'd skip Hotel32, even if those rooms are nice, Monte Carlo still is really mediocre.

    I'm partial to Vdara's City Corner Suite. It's really big, with windows all around with a fountain view, it's really nice, and probably a better deal than Cosmo or Aria. There is no casino, but it's literally 50 steps from Aria and maybe a 3 minute walk to Bellagio or Cosmo.

    Maybe try a different area of the strip? Palazzo or Wynn? Since you stayed South Strip last time. But, really, just for for whatever the best deal is! All the 5 star hotels in Vegas are wonderful.

    Do you have dates and a budget, maybe we could help you a little better :)

    Any reason you are not considering Bellagio?

    Well, you sure have set yourself up. That view with balcony is hard to match. There are nicer rooms, and for sure nicer hotels, but...not gonna match what you had.

    As said, without budget, it is hard to say. Also, did you play enough that offers from Cosmo, Mlife or CET would impact things?

    I second the suggestion to stay at Bellagio. We've stayed in a room overlooking the fountains and loved it. Worth looking into :eek:

    Really, any of the 5 stars are fantastic! But depending on budget, some places get you more for the money. Like Vdara would get you twice as much room as Cosmo would for the same price.

    I guess it just depends which feel you like the most, the modern stuff, or the classic stuff.

    Aria Sky Suites or Bellagio would be my choices.

    Check out the ARIA! Since knowing my bf, we've stayed at the Mandalay Bay 550 (?) room, Aria's corner suite, Cosmo's wrap-around suite (to compare to Aria's suite) and since been hooked on Aria's suites. We're staying there next week in the Tower suite. (Hope it's different than the corner suite)
