Checked into a lake view suite on 6/3 for five nights. Really looking forward to the stay. Check-in & Room impression Check-in was fairly smooth, although the clerk was obviously very ill and had to step away to sneeze/cough/blow nose twice during the check-in process. Suite was nice, but his and her bathrooms layout is a little unnecessary (since "hers" doesn't have a shower). Bell Desk and housekeeping service were very good. Property We were extremely disappointed to find out that the Fontana Bar had been replaced with Hyde. On many previous trips we had spent countless hours at that bar and had planned to do the same on this trip. Ok, let's go look for the other VP bar. Ugh, that has been replaced with Lily. This effectively means that our video poker options were reduced to the floor machines (die of thirst option), the sports book (dodge the hooker option), or the small bar mid casino (can't find a seat option). Things weren't looking up. Strike One. We decided to catch the tram to Aria. I actually think the walk to the tram is longer than it is to exit the casino and walk. The tram station is outdoor and shielded from any breeze. It had to be 120 degrees up there for the 10 minute wait for the tram. Not great when in casual dress, would hate to do this in evening wear. Strike Two. Cage I deposited front money upon arrival. I do this for several reasons; a) I don't believe in Casino credit, b) safer than transporting cash, and most importantly c) it usually results in some VIP treatment. This has worked flawlessly for me for over a decade at many properties, including the Bellagio. This time they really made it hard to get cash. As a Video Poker player having to go to a table to sign a marker then take chips to the cage is a huge hassle, especially when they don't want you to leave the table without playing. I actually had a heated conversation with a Pit Boss over this. Strike Three. We checked out after one night and moved to The Cosmopolitan. Very sad to see this once great property scratched off our list.
