    I am staying at the Aria in April for 2 nights thanks for the 50% off deal from MyVEGAS. I booked the Deluxe King Room. Just now I received a special email from Aria that states: "As a special thank you for booking your stay with us, we would like to extend this exclusive offer to upgrade your room at ARIA".

    I decided to click the email to see what special offer was it giving me. The offer was $75 upgrade each night to a Corner King Suite. Has anyone ever stayed in a Corner Suite?

    Also tell me a little more about them?

    Yes I have the last 4 trips. Love it. You can check in at the Tower Suites lounge instead of regular check in. They have drinks and snacks there. You also will have an ice maker in your room. One bathroom has a heated toilet and bidet.
     
    SEMA Show that probably won’t happen.
    The rescheduled Garth Brooks concert hopefully this time.

    Yes. I am not a big fan. The two biggest positives of the corner suite are the slightly better bathroom and the separate living room. But the downsides: the living room is cramped, its always a log walk to the suite from the elevators, and some of the suites have support beams for the building structure running through them. In other words, it feels like they tried to cram a suite into too small a space. To me, the cost of the upgrade is not worth it, unless the extra room is really important to you

    Thanks. So is it worth the $75 more a night?

    Just know corner suites can have different layouts. Some have the corner (two walls of windows) in the bathroom around the tub (LOVE THIS, had this), some have it in the bedroom.

    I personally will not usually pay to upgrade to a suite, as a nice basic room is fine for me.

    BUT Aria is the one place I've considered it, solely for the tower suites lounge check in.

    I had a CS a couple trips back and I LOVE the lounge. Free coffee, juices and sodas and snacks all day, and it's big enough to be comfy. (Not like some of the dinky 14' ×14' "faux" VIP lounges I've seen at some places.) Being able to go in and grab drinks, coffee juices and soda is SO nice. Also, love the light snacks.

    Finally, you WILL have a full fridge for your use in your room. We are in a CS this trip, and I plan on hopping over to MC to use their takeout buffet for around $20. I'm going to load up on meats, cheeses, fruits and a few nibble veggies. I'll keep this in the room for an in-room chacuterie board for morning or late night nibbles! :) I also have packed prosecco, to have for mimosas in the room in the mornings. I like having the fridge. And if you have a suite, why NOT have a fun "nibbles and mimosas" breakfast in the room?

    So, from someone who won't pay for a suite upgrade, Aria is one place you really can get some value for the upgrade. IF you don't like it, then you know you're not missing anything, but I definitely think it's worth a try, at least for one trip!

    $75 a night is a decent discount, but it is definitely the max upcharge I would pay; a few years ago you could get it for $50. It helps that you're already getting a good discount on the base room and that you're only staying 2 nights.

    There are at least 3 layouts, hopefully you'll get one that's basically a square floorplan, and not the one with the support beam - I think the ones with the beam are the "panoramic" versions.

    There's plenty of videos on Youtube.

    I did the upgrade in December. I enjoyed the experience. I am glad I did it for the experience but would not do it again unless I was there with a group of people who were hanging out. It was too much room for the wife and I.

    You will get an email from a concierge closer to your stay asking what time you are going to arrive so they can try to have your room ready and ask if you anything else. We had them have our show tickets ready for example.

    When you go through the main doors at Aria stay to your left and there are doors which lead you to the Tower Suites check in and lounge. Just before you turn left to go into the casino itself. There are also a set of doors from the Casino side to get into the lounge but you need your door pass which you get at check in. Check in is pretty fast as they a pile of people working in there.

    The Tower Lounge. It's nice to be able to pop in there and get free juice, pop and water. Ere ent to Red Rock one day and grabbed a bunch of water and left and nobody seemed to care. I grabbed tons of oj and pop for mix in the room and nobody cared. They also have a private one person washroom that is pretty nice. I wouldn't get worked up at the food or snack offerings unless we were on an off week. They have nice pastries and chocolates for breakfast and that was it. Cold ravioli for the entire week. They did not mix it up once. There aren't many seats in there and at busy times you can end up sharing a couch or seats around a table with others. They also have an Eva Braun character standing watch refreshing the drinks and snacks but it's just weird that he or she stands there like a security guard watching you.

    The room itself in gorgeous. We were on the 245th looking at the Palms, Rio, Orlenas and Mountains. Not bad. There is no real strip view at Aria.
    You get a living room and dining room area with a small dining table. Which has plenty of room.
    You get a fridge with an ice maker.
    There is a slide door to the bedroom if somebody wants privacy to go to sleep.
    There three tv's. One in the living, one in the bed and one by the bath. We just put on music channels so you can have music throughout.
    The bidet, butt blow dryer and heated toilet seat will spoil your butt.
    They provide shave kits and toothbrush kits which is a nice touch.
    There is a half bath at the door as well.

    We didn't care for the tub actually. It is a spa but is really loud when running and if you are trying to have a romantic tub date it's just loud and the water is only on one setting. Niagara Falls. You can't adjust it down. The tub in the standard room is nicer.

    People complain about the walk from the elevator. We weren't that far really. A little longer than normal but not bad.

    Have a look at my trip report I posted lots of photos of the room and bathroom but there are different layouts as mentioned.

    Here are some pics of our corner suite. I agree with the bathtub. Super loud and water splashes everywhere.

    Not all Corner Suites are in the Tower Suite category.You should call to confirm.
    If it is you get to use the lounge for free coffee,water,snacks tec.
    That being said,I still think it worth it.
    The suites with the cramped living rooms UK referred to are called the panoramic corner suites.I do not like those either.
