    Quick question, I have a guys trip planned for late July for 4 nights, would you stay at Aria on a offer for $79 a night plus resort fee with $100 resort credit and $50 free play or Mirage on a 2 night comp and the other two nights for $59 plus resort fee and $50 free play? Money isn't a issue and I have stayed at both properties before I just can't decide because I love them both. P.S. I will be going to the pool at either one I decide and most likely will roam the strip anyways to gamble as I don't like just hanging at one property the whole time. Please give me some advice because I have a hard time deciding on things like this. Thanks in advance!

    Short answer, Aria. Long answer, besides just a guys trip what do they plan on doing? Mirage has a better pool scene for younger crowds and you can get more for your money overall, Aria has better room by far. How old is everyone?

    If money is not an issue, go with Aria. Better pool, spa, atmosphere, people watching, and food.

    If either one is going to be a good choice...

    Then I would ask myself which one I want my buddies to see (if some of them have never gone before).


    For me, I'm also not a guy that just stays in the hotel - so things like restaurants, entertainment or gaming options don't really matter as I can do that at other properties.

    I usually choose based on the pool that I want to spend time at.

    Aria is a much nicer property.

    Much less of a battle for seats at the pool than Mirage which can be a challenge in July.
    Rooms are larger with better bathrooms

    Given your somewhat confusing parameters, Aria.

    Aria casino way better for a young group.
    Drink service is by far better at Aria.

    As much as I loooove the mirage, I like the aria rooms better. The Aria casino is nice and subdued as you get into the late night hours.

    I've never been a fan of the casino at Aria. Seems like a cold, dark warehouse with no panache. But the points about the rooms are certainly something to consider.

    Thanks to everyone with their replies! I just have a hard time deciding between two properties that I really like, they both have their pros and cons but y'all have helped and I chose Aria. I think it would be better for 3 guys in their early 30's, plus we all are getting our own room by the way. When I said money isn't an issue I meant that when it comes to a couple hundred dollar difference then that isn't much money to worry about to have a nice place to stay that is close to everything that we like to do like Planet Hollywood pleasure pit and Cosmo book and stage bar and bond bar of course. I guess it was a stupid question in hindsight.
