Before you flame I realize this: I only have a gambling and stay history with the Aria and expected nothing from either phone call I just find it interesting and odd. My Mlife offers right now are Special Rates are Aria and Bellagio and a mix of one comped night, freeplay and credit at the rest of the MGM spots. We want either of the first two places. All say to call VIP Services. VIP Aria phone call: Spoke with the nicest lady on the phone. She gave me a good rate, upgraded strip view and a late check out for the same rate over a weekend in December. She also noted it was my birthday, I am a repeat and put on my file to give me the same high floor room I had last year although no promises. She was very personable and friendly. VIP Bellagio phone call: Lady came across like she couldn't wait to get off the phone with me from start. Offered the room discount. When asked about getting a fountain view upgrade she told me I would have to deal with the front desk for $30 a night on arrival. Okay, so I really don't know until I get there if I could get a fountain view? Yes. Awkward silence. Okay thanks. I realize they owe me nothing but I was puzzled why she didn't even offer to book me the fountain view with the $30 extra on top of the offer. I would have probably have taken it, stayed, ate and gambled there for 4 days, Instead not. I found it kind of odd or funny I guess.
