    I received an e-mail from Aria yesterday for 3 comp nights and three nights at $69.....I could just take the 3 comp nights if I wish. this comes with $100 food credit, but I do have to pay resort fees and resort tax. 3 night total would be $105 for resort fees, but I get $100 food credit..so a push....

    In my next trip, I have 5 nights comped at The Fremont downtown and 4 comped nights at the Golden nugget.

    I could go for 2 nights at The Fremont and go for the 3 comped nights at Aria...and 4 nights at Golden Nugget instead.

    But, I'm just a middle class guy, not a wealthy type. And I'm not a fancy guy. I'm concerned that i'd be out of place at Aria. Downtown, I can go to other casinos rather easily, at Aria walking so far to visit other casinos is not advantageous.. I know the Fremont is not close in attributes to Aria, but I'm not Goerge Clooney either.

    So, why would I want to stay at Aria? I go solo. Sell me on Aria.
    Thanks,
    Hugo

    There are trams to Montecarlo and Bellagio so that will help you get around.

    A few years ago I thought Bellagio was too snooty for me to stay at. Four stays later I still love staying there. Now I only want to stay at equal or better properties.

    Nicer restaurants and less smoke is a good start

    North-central Strip location. Easy access (like five minutes to walk) to Bellagio and Cosmo. The people watching is fantastic. The rooms are high end, among the best on the Strip. Access to fantastic restaurants. The people watching is fantastic. Also, I find that both Bellagio and Aria will have lower limit tables at almost any time of day.

    For me, it's location, people watching (did I mention that?), and restaurants. I can do everything I like from there. And I'm not a high roller by any means, yet still get solid comp offers. If you've already done enough to get three nights comped at Aria, take them up on it ... If nothing else, it can appeal to just the voyeuristic side of all the crazy Vegas people you'll see!

    And what VegasBJ says about smoke is right. I do appreciate their ventilation.

    I don't think anyone can be out of place anywhere unless you are wearing a wife beater, swim trunks and flip flops around the casino

    Lol, I was referring to the OP thinking he will feel out of place at Aria. That is probably standard dress code for the Jersey Shore crowd.

    I would not worry that much about feeling out of place. All these hotels get all sorts, fancy or no.

    But it really comes down to whether you want to split your stay between the strip and downtown. Aria is a nice staging place if there are restaurants/shows/other stuff you want to do on the strip. But if the walking will just be a pain, and a casino is a casino, and you aren't into fine dining, you likely aren't going to get a lot out of it.
