    Hi guys,

    This is my third ever trip to Vegas, I went twice last year. I am going with a group of guys we are all in our mid 30's. I am a heavy gambler and I get free suites at any MGM resort. I'd like to make this trip less about gambling and more about partying (easier said then done!). I am just torn at which hotel to stay at. Here are the options:

    Aria
    Mandalay Bay
    Bellagio
    MGM

    I might have missed a few but I get free rooms pretty much at any MGM resort. I am a very picky eater so casual food is fine for me, I intend to play strictly live poker on this trip. I am looking for the best parties in the day time (pool parties), the best eye candy at night, and the best live poker action (10-20 NL, 25-50 NL). I am torn at whic hotel to stay at! All my friends are telling me to just book for the MGM because of Wet Republic, but I stayed at both Bellagio and MGM and the Bellagio just seems so much more lively. Help me make my choice!

    Thanks :)

    The parties (clubs) will probably be better at MGM Grand. You'll only get high stakes like that in live poker at Bellagio out of those 4. Sometimes Aria runs a 5/10, rarely see much bigger unless it's during some big event (e.g. WSOP). I like Aria or Bellagio out of those, for the location alone.

    My opinion only...

    For Poker - Bellagio
    For Pool Parties - MGM Grand
    Eye Candy @ night - Aria/Bellagio
    Suite - Probably Aria, depending on which suite at MGM you could get

    But, if you really want to a really nice suite with access to some really nice pools and right next door to Bellagio to get your poker on, then take a look at the Welcome Offer from the Cosmo where they've been matching a lot of offers. Granted, if you low play them, you'll definitely burn a bridge, but I think Cosmo would hit most of your marks.

    I agree with SH0CK that Aria would be good for the suite and the "scenery" :wink2:.
    +1 on the contacting Cosmo idea, though! :thumbsup:

    Have a great 3rd trip to Vegas! Hopefully you and your crew do some damage at the tables!
