    My wife and I are celebrating a big anniversary this year, and are inviting all the people who were in our wedding back then to join us for a big bash in Vegas in August. (Most common comment, of course: "Vegas? In August?")

    We've stayed at Aria--just the standard rooms--a few times and had 99% positive experiences there. For this trip, I'd like to upgrade to a suite so that we can have at least one party in there. I have zero experience with the Aria suites (or any other suite in Vegas). I've been playing around on mlife and the Aria website--both clunky and confusing, of course. This is what I'm seeing:

    Panoramic view corner suite (920 sq. ft.): $275 a night

    City view tower suite (1000 sq. ft.): $275 a night

    City view Crystals suite (1000 sq. ft.): $275 a night

    City view one bedroom Aria suite (1050 sq. ft.): $300 a night

    I'm sure they're all very nice--maybe not opulent High Roller palaces, but fine enough for mid-level government employees like myself. I'm trying to figure out if there's an obvious reason to NOT pick the one bedroom Aria suite for the extra $25 a night. My main desire is to NOT be on a low floor--our only negative experience at Aria was the time we got a room on the lowest (3rd) floor.

    Is anyone able to shed any light on which of these four would be preferable, and why?

    Thank you!

    Panoramic View Suite : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15g0GTHH-98

    on youtube.. You might be able to find all the other suites on there as well, but majority of the vids might be a few years old so the layout or design might have been upgraded now.

    From experience, I like the Panoramic Corner Suite, i've stayed there a couple of times with a big group and it has always been great. I havent tried any of the other suite though.

    How many people are you planning to host?

    None of those suites is THAT big when you take the bedroom/bathroom out of the picture.

    If it's a dozen or more, I'd consider staying in a regular room and reserving an Executive Hospitality Suite for a night for the party, if you can get a decent discount. Huge wow factor, plenty of room (2,000 SF).

    BTW, the One Bedroom Aria Suite is a Sky Suite, so that should insure you're not on a low floor.

    Probably only about 10 at the most. And I'm not really thinking a full-blown, hours-long party--more like gathering everyone together for drinks once or twice before folks disperse to the shows or Ellis Island (that'd be me). But if more people accept our invitation than I'm expecting, I'll keep the hospitality suite in mind!

    Thanks! That's very helpful and good to know. (I never expected to stay in a Sky Suite, so I didn't really think about them or realize they were on higher floors, but I guess that's implicit in the name.)

    for that many people, look into the Penthouse Sky Suite.

    the issue with the Tower/Aria Suite is that about 600 sq ft of that 1050 is taken up by the br/ba.

    so you are talking about cramming 10 people into 450 sq ft with nothing but 1 couch and a small table.

    the Penthouse doubles the size of the living room to 1000 sq ft with a large dining table, sofa and some chairs and a full wet bar. this would hold a 10 person party very comfortably.

    the Corner Suites isn't a real suite at all, just a large room.

    I've been in several types of Corner Suites and ten people will be tight.
    There are various sizes with the "panoramic" being the tightest.it has the small living room with the TV on the pole.
    Four people in their is tight.
    All the Corner Suites I have been in are actual suites with separate living room bedroom large bathroom and a powder room.
    They are not large but do qualify as actual suites.
    The one bedroom Aria Suite in the SkySuites is not much bigger.six people will,be crowded
    Shifter iscexactlybrightvabout the Penthouse.
    We had ten in their comfortably for a party last and it worked out great

    For what it;s worth, the Cirrus suite is the same size/floorplan as the Penthouse. However, unlike the penthouse, the Cirrus suite is not located on the Sky Suites level. I believe the Cirrus suites are located on floors 25-26 and I think another lower set like floors 15-16. Supposedly there are only 4 Cirrus suites at Aria so the room availability is the tricky part.

    When my rate was $500 for the Penthouse, It was about $300 for the Cirrus. Which is the same room!

    I think the best option to host guests would be the Hospitality Suite. Pretty sure these rooms are located on lower floors. Pricing is likely somewhere between the Cirrus and Penthouse suites.

    Last month we got a great deal and stayed in a corner suite for the first time. It's very nice but I agree for 10 people to enjoy a party it would be tight. There is a little dining/sitting area next to the living room with a table but if you combine that area with the living room you really only have the equivalent of a small living room. 4-6 people would be more reasonable in there. BTW we loved the corner suite, it's spoiled us for the usual room we get at Aria.

    Aria does have a limited number of Suites called the Executive Hospitality Suite.
    We have had 14-16 people in there comfortably.
    It has an attached conference room which has a huge table plus a regular room on the other end.

    Another vote for hospitality suite. Just returned from Vegas. Had 13 folks "hanging out" in suite with no space issues. Even made use of the conference room table for a poker game while watching playoffs on 65 inch TV in conf room. Corner suites are not a good option for 10+ people.
