    Airport was a breeze.. Living in Cleveland does have it advantages, never seen the airport busy.. Flight is on time.. Little Tito’s to take the edge off.. 7687F76D-2BEC-455B-859B-8D1A279F2BD8.jpeg

    Flight to Chicago about 90% full minus the middle seat.. Uneventful which is good.. Quick 30 minute layover in Chicago.. No drinks so we brought our own..

    Welcome to the Boards. I'm looking forward to following along - the SkyLofts seem so nice. I seriously doubt I'll ever do enough play to get one comped, but I love following other's adventures. Safe travels! Win big! And keep the posts coming!

    I’m looking forward to seeing some pics. I’ve never stayed at Aria and had a 4 night comped sky suite available. I was debating it and a wraparound suite at Cosmo, which I chose and have not stayed at either. So I’m very curious to see current sky suite pics so I can compare it to my Cosmo stay next week.

    Have a great time.

    OP is staying at the MGM skylofts, not the Aria skysuites. Both, however, are very nice

    Now that makes more sense why he’s playing at the MGM grand.

    I’m curious too. Hopefully the HL room at Cosmo is pretty quiet.
