    After looking at all of the various offers, I decided to book a trip to NY NY in July. I have a comped suite for three nights. I chose NY NY because of the nice vibe, restaurants and location. I have never stayed there though. I am a bit concerned about making sure I get a nice suite that is clean and has a good view. I almost thought about switching to Aria but there I get no suite, just a room and 150 less comps.

    I am MLife Gold. What type of suite should I hope for or ask for when I check in? I don't need something ridiculously huge, I just want something clean and nice. I am booked in a spa suite. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    You might run some video on suites at NYNY and see what you think. Definitely look at the suite bathroom. This is where a lot of "mid-tier suites" fall below a standard room in a top hotel (for me).

    Personally a basic room at Aria trumps most mid-tier suites in my book, but the extra $150 RC is a big difference.

    Whatever you decide, I know you'll have a blast!

    The Spa suite is really just a standard room with a tacked on jacuzzi. You probably will want to get into a Marquis or Players suite if you want something higher end. Be advised, none of NYNY's suites are really what you could call "modern", they are all in need of a remodel but they do have plenty of room and like the rest of the rooms on site should be clean and well maintained.

    The view, with all the weird tower orientations and angles will be hit or miss unless you specify what view you want when you check in (if they have it). I've had great north-facing strip views there, but also airport views and obstructed views where you see more of the outside walls than anything else. Also keep in mind you may want to request a room away from the roller coaster noise if you're a napper or late sleeper.

    I adore NYNY, it's one of my fave resorts on the strip. Unpretentious, fun, great vibe and Gallagher's is a top notch steak house. Enjoy.

    Yes, if that "spa suite" is what I think it is, you may be disappointed. Larger room with spa tub near the bathroom. Bathroom is very small. Ours had a decent view and we were fine with it.

    Overall, NYNY is a fun place to play, eat and drink. Many prefer it to the higher end Aria.

    While I loved the rooms at Aria, I still keep going back to NYNY. It's smaller, feels more "homey" and just seems to work well for what we're looking for during our Vegas vacations. We've not stayed in any room above the standard, but we've usually had decent views (i.e. no views of HVAC units or walls). The last time we stayed at NYNY, we had a corner room with a larger window overlooking T-Mobile Arena. The rooms have always been clean and the staff friendly, but we're not concerned with the type of room when we go, as we are usually only in the room long enough to sleep and shower.

    I do agree that the rooms are dated, but so were the last two rooms we had at Palazzo.

    Be adventurous and ask for the One Bedroom Luxury Suite -- you might get lucky :)

    Great advice from others here. Check carefully as to what your offer is for, quite often it is for a spa suite. As mentioned above, a spa suite is a room with a jet-tub in the middle of it. It wouldn't be much larger than a standard Aria room Also, the spa suites do not have a mini bar from what I remember.

    I have stayed in two different styles of players suites over the years. Last one was disappointing, was one large room with a couch and small dinner table. Again no mini-bar or fridge. View of the pool (and roller coaster). Previous to that, stayed in a players suite with basically a seperate sitting room which seemed more spacious.

    Can't say enough about how much fun we have had in the Casino and bars at NYNY over the years. Early morning coffee and donuts from America and steak dinners at Gallaghers. Friday and Saturday night the centre bar is lots of fun as well. Cheap beer during happy hour at Coyate Uglys... and I have always done well by the 3:2 double deck BJ.

    Enjoy!

    With it being a holiday weekend when you are going, it may be hard to upgrade. I would not be going into the trip with real hopes of getting a better room than booked. I typically go on busy weekends myself, Memorial Day and Labor Day are two of my standards and have never been able to get a true upgrade at check in.

    I've never booked a suite with MLife VIP services and am not sure what their bumping policy is so maybe someone else can help out on this. It seems that CET is much more apt to downgrade you at check-in on your comp than MLife, but I haven't stayed with CET in many years. I am posting this off anecdotal evidence I've read off the board.

    Good luck, I have always liked the casino vibe at NYNY since my very first trip over 10 years ago.
