    Hi all.

    I'm looking to book a few weeknights in October at Aria at a discounted rate I received through Mlife, however I discovered that they have two different rates for their basic "deluxe" rooms - one rate for a room with a king bed, and another rate which is $30 more for a room with two beds. If one books a deluxe king room at Aria and requests a room with two beds at check-in, is this a request that they're usually able to accommodate for free (pending availability, of course), or do they tend to be very strict about charging an extra $30/night for a room with two beds?

    Thanks!

    Double bed rooms are a different rate these days at ALL the Vegas hotels. If you want 2 beds you have to pay for the double beds. Usually because they don't have very many, and people cram 4 people in the rooms (I know I'm guilty haha). Lord knows why they assume everyone travels to Vegas with their significant other and wants to share a bed.

    I would try calling the Mlife number though and asking for 2 beds. I did it when I booked Mandalay a few months ago and they didn't charge me more for 2 beds. Can't hurt... Don't ask is there a charge or whatever. Just be like oh by the way I need 2 beds.

    if you go that route, I hope you're OK with spooning your buddy for a few nights, because that's what's going to happen. now of course if you're traveling with a hot female-friend, you can book the king and say they screwed up your reservation when you get there ...

    They waived it for me over Labor Day weekend. I was polite and not pushy about it.

    I've found Aria overall to be somewhat of a stickler when it comes to trying to collect for a room with 2 beds, or if you're wanting a "city view" when you've booked a basic deluxe king... So if you've booking their lowest priced room, expect that's what you will receive unless you pay the difference at check in. In my experience I've also found that Aria doesn't really offer discounted upgrade deals at check in.. They are pretty much going to charge you the price you would have paid if you had reserved that room type to begin with. Obviously,there's always exceptions to the norm, occupancy plays a role, the person checking you in plays a role, etc.. but the norm there is you'll get what's reserved.
