    Mandalay Bay resort room
    Delano scenic suite
    Aria

    All are 3 night offers, all 500 resort credit and 500 freeplay.

    Location doesn't matter as we always rent a car. We are leaning towards Aria.

    If offers are identical, my vote is absolutely Arial love the hotel and way better location. I know location doesn't matter, but it's still nice to sometimes not to drag the car out.

    Even minus location, Aria would still be my vote.


    BUT in all fairness, Ive never stayed at Mandalay Bay, only walked through it.

    Great package, enjoy!

    What room type at Aria?

    Both properties are nice, Aria is a little sleeker and better appointed.

    If they're giving you a Corner Suite or better at Aria, I'd take that. If they're only giving you a regular room (seems out of whack given the amount of freeplay & resort credit though), you have to at least consider the Scenic Suite at Delano - I've stayed in them when it was THEhotel and it's a great view from the bedroom.

    Honestly with that amount of freeplay and resort credit, I'd be asking for a Skyview 1050 suite at Mandalay Bay with a view right up the strip.

    Since location isn't a concern, I'd then lean toward which pool was better if it's in the warmer months. I'd go with the Delano scenic suite since you can use the pool at Mandalay Bay and the pictures of that suite along with having a half bath would give that suite the nod over the Mandalay Bay room.

    But, if pool doesn't matter, then I'd go Aria first, then Delano.

    Oops, for some reason read this as a standard room at MB, didn't even see Delano.

    Even though I love Aria, if it's a SS at Delano versus a standard room at Aria, that changes things totally...especially since location isn't an issue. For me Delano rooms are too white from what I've seen, but many love it!!!!

    Now I'm curious what type of room it is at Aria :D

    If Delano is the only Suite - it is an easy choice for us.

    I do think location matters. I assume you will walk to some places and not go through the hassle of driving.

    Even so, we love the MB/Delano complex. Lots of places to eat. You can walk indoors to Luxor and Excal. And even keep walking further if you want. We enjoy staying there and we don't do a car.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Sorry on the email it just states suite at Aria. I need to call. I know Mandalay Bay resort room is out for sure. It's between Delano and Aria. Oh also we have the option to stay at Red Rock in a suite for 3 days but I think we want to gamble on strip at mlife casinos this strip.

    As others said if the only true suite is Delano go for that. Aria fudges a bit and frequently calls most of their rooms suites so check what kind of room they mean. To be comparable to Delano you need a corner suite or higher at Aria. We stayed at a resort room at Mandalay a long time ago and it was nice but nothing special. We had a panoramic suite at Delano last year and it was BIG but the decor was a little weird to me. It was the whitest room I've ever been in short of an operating room, still the view was great and the service was exceptional.

    We love Aria, yes the hotel is huge but we have stayed there dozens of times and we have never encountered an employee that wasn't pleasant and didn't try to do everything to make your stay perfect. One further note on the corner suites, they come in many varieties. We've experienced at least 4 radically different floor plans so far.
