    Ok so after reading about the rooms at Paris being outdated and the construction on suites and the pool closed we are thinking of cancelling our reservations. Now which one to pick out of Aria,Bellagio or Cosmopolitan? Help! :ssst:

    Hands down Cosmo! The terrace gives it the edge. Fun casino, great staff and excellent food options.

    I don't even consider Bellagio an option any more. The massive number of tourists that come to see the lobby, conservatory, fountains, etc. just becomes maddening after a while. It's a fine property...but if you're even a little bit impatient, you'll go crazy dealing with the crowds.

    I really like Aria and Cosmo. Aria has far better fine dining options and better gambling conditions for the most part. Cosmo has the terraces, fun party vibe and cool shit to see everywhere.

    Unless you're RFB and need to eat most of your meals at the property where you're staying, I'd probably pick Cosmo. Hard to go wrong either way, though.

    Aria is a Better overall resort but Cosmo has the terrace. Go with Cosmo and pay the extra for a fountain view. You won't be sorry

    Sorry to sidetrack/hijack but what is this about Paris pool being closed? (I have a reservation for 4/1-4/4)

    You can't go wrong IMO with either Aria or Cosmo. Between the two I prefer Cosmo but would happily stay at either.

    Another vote for the Cosmo, it's a solid property.

    We stayed at Paris a couple weeks ago. They had the pool drained and down to the bare concrete. Looks like they were getting ready to re paint it.

    Ok with all the response to Cosmopolitan that's what we are leaning too. Can anyone tell me about their Identity Membership & Rewards program. Will it give us any upgrades? Thanks for all the replies!:nworthy:

    I'd stay at Aria but play at Bellagio. I think despite its quality, Aria is still more economical to stay compared to both B and C.

    However, despite all the tourist crowd, I still find B's casino to be way nicer than the other two. By nice, I mean it just looks and feels like a high-end casino. A's casino is more like a business plaza, while C's casino is more like some tables and machines scattered around a night club.

    Ok so say we book a city studio now and hope for an upgrade when we arrive or should we go ahead and book a Terrace Studio now? Just curious if the rate on day we check in would be a lot more? Any help would be much appreciated!:thumbsup:

    Never mind. It doesn't matter...book it!

    If you want the balcony book the terrace studio. Don't gamble, you will potentially end up disappointed.

    Are you new to Identity? If so, I would book the terrace studio. Cosmo is very good with comps once you have established yourself there.

    Stayed in all 3, Cosmo is the best hands down.

    The one thing that I hated at the Aria was I kept getting static shocked everywhere I went in the property. From the elevator door, to the bathroom door, to the buffet, I kept getting shocked. It only happened in that hotel it was pissing me off.

    Yes will be our first time staying there. We've been a long time Bellagio faithful!
