    I'm considering switching my play from Mlife to CET.

    With that said, during my last trip in Dec '13. I was on a good strong $200-500 per bet streak win for a good 1-2 hrs, so my average bet should be $200-300 for about 4-5 hours. Afterwards, the pit boss highly recommended me talk to a host so I can start staying there as I was having terrible luck at Aria that trip. But since it was 6am that day and my GF was about to fall over. I never had the chance to visit the office.

    I should have play on my TR so would be wise to call the VIP office to see what they can do or would anyone like to share their host info?

    I typically stay at 1 BR Sky Suite at Aria comp'd, hopefully PH have something similar.

    The PHo equivalents would be the Panoramic suites at 1200 sq ft with separate bedrooms. They have more sq ft than base 1bdrm sky suite at aria at 1050. They are going to be in shorter supply at PHo. At your level of play you could definitely get up to all base room types, this would be resort vista at top end or strip suite (not really a suite IMHO). I am not so sure you could get into the panoramic at PHo say on a major weekend. Weekday play and provided you hit 7 Star rating would get you those. Players rate on the Panoramic suites start upward of 1.5K a night so you can figure the level of theoretical hands you have to play at BJ to get that level of comp.

    IMHO I think you would be disappointed with PHo room after leaving Aria unless you really like the vibe of PHo.

    I usually stay in a one bedroom SkySuite and spent a couple nights last year in a suite on the "Penthouse"floor at PH.
    It had a butler and the whole deal.
    It may have been a little more square footage than the SkySuite but as Funkhouser said, it was a little disappointing.

    Yeah I would say going from a suite at one of the top 5 properties (Wynncore, The B, Aria, Cosmo, Venetian/Palazzo) to another property that's outside of that group would be disappointing. Even the best rooms at the mid-level properties are going to be a disappointment. There are some rooms at Caesars that would be okay, but I would put Caesars as just outside (maybe even in) that group above.

    If you were going from a regular room at Aria to a suite at a mid-level property you'd probably be okay due to the extra space and amenities, but making a parallel move from a top tier to a mid-tier just isn't going to compare. Add in the fact that many of the mid tier props have a smaller number of those premium rooms, which keeps the "cost" high due to demand, and you're not likely to pick up any additional comps for the downgrade of properties either.

    Sent you a PM with my hosts info. Rooms at PH are perfectly suitable for me and I take them over comped rooms at aria/Cosmo (more free play at PH + get suite vs standard rooms)

    That said, if you do appreciate how nice the room is + bathroom amenities/etc, PH isn't that great, even their large suites. I stayed in their 4br boulevard suite which has a pool table, 3 TVs in the living room, ping pong table, shower in the living room with stripper pole...great room for a large gathering but the rooms themselves were just standard rooms. Fine for me with friends, but would probably stay at Aria or Cosmo if I was with my wife and not bunch of guys.


    Edit: the new tower at Caesars is pretty nice and id say comparable (maybe a little below) to rooms at aria. I don't really like their casino though so I don't ever stay there.

    The above looks pretty much like what I wrote to you in the PM I sent last night. I just sent you my host info. There must be some special way she is comping rooms and FP as a normal calculation as described by Funkhouser above is not what she uses. My play is similar to yours and Panoramic suites are provided with FP. That said, I would agree that any CET room anywhere is not going to be as nice as Aria. Even Caesars, where I just returned from last night, was not nearly as nice and the casino was BORING. But, we have now tried all the CET resorts and find PH, Bally's and Paris to be a ton of fun with nice (not spectacular) rooms. Throw in a fantastic host and we are happy :)

    Have you ever been in a room @ PH? If so I think you would realize they have nothing similar to sky suites.

    Yikes. I've only seen photos, but the pool tables and what not seem great for the group of friends I'm going with for EDC (rave). Well with all of what you guys said. I guess I'll find out shortly how I like and dislike the rooms.

    Thank you to both members for sending me their host info.

    Yes, a very large room w pool table sounds great for the scenario you described. However, the room will be beat up and dingy compared to a Sky Suite at Aria, which is what you originally asked.

    I'll keep the Aria Sky Suite for when I'm with my gf. :) For a big loud group, I feel the comp'd Blvd suite would be better if I can get it. :)

    I think you are probably right. :)
