For one reason only. Which is the better location if you want to hang out at Cosmopolitan and Aria?
Park MGM, imho. Easy walk to Aria-or take the tram! Easy walk to Cosmo via Shops at Crystals.
Like @julia said it’s an easy walk to Aria, there are connected like Bally’s/Paris.
Park MGM for sure. it's on the same side of the strip as those that you mention. Bally's is not.
Theres a tram directly from Park MGM to ARIA. So that's basically a no brainer. It's a long walk from Bally's to Aria. So there's really not much to think about there.
No need to take the tram from ParkMGM to Aria. Just go through the doors and down the escalator and you're there. A lot of times I take the same route from ParkMGM to get to Cosmo, especially if coming from the room elevators, as you can go out by the art galleries and Waldorf Astoria to the pedestrian bridge to Crystals.
I'll play Devil's advocate here - the walk from Bally's to Cosmo is pretty short and IMO the rooms are much nicer at Bally's. Add in great video poker bars and I'm sold on Bally's...
If it was just hanging out at the Cosmo I would say Bally’s. If it was just hanging out at Aria I would say Park MGM. Personally I would rather walk unless it’s summer then take the tram so my vote is for Bally’s.
If Aria is your priority, Park MGM makes a lot of sense. Cosmo, it's a wash. It's pretty easy to cut through Paris, cross the street and be right at Cosmo.
Personally, though, I think Bally's is a better hotel with larger and nicer rooms. Bally's was built as one of the nicest places in town, while Monte Carlo was always a budget property.
Also depends on how much play you are giving Aria vs. Cosmo.
