Aria is a unique casino-resort in Las Vegas. It’s AAA Five Diamond certification shows that Aria is certainly a luxury resort. What’s special about Aria is that hotel room prices are often less expensive than other properties in the same category. When you use a promotion from MGM Resorts M Life Rewards you may find even more discounts for this high-end property.
It seems as though MGM Resorts is always working to upgrade the property. The latest additions to Aria come in the form of two new lounges for guests staying at the hotel. Aria recently debuted the Resort Club Lounge and Concierge Lounge, where guests can enjoy a dedicated welcome experience and intimate gathering spaces.
New Aria Lounges
Aria’s Concierge Lounge is available to all guests that stay at the hotel. This new lounge creates a highly personalized experience dedicated to one-on-one assistance from the resort’s knowledgeable concierge team, in a cozy, welcoming living room atmosphere. Here’s something I didn’t know. Aria is the only Las Vegas resort to have more than 50 Concierge team members and 8 Les Clefs d’Or associates. The latter is an elite group of concierge members armed with extraordinary skills who can assist with everything from the simple need to the most complex requests.
The Resort Club Lounge is accessible to all guests who reserve a Resort Club room. This lounge provides a variety of amenities including a daily social hour with complimentary wine and champagne. There are also gourmet bites throughout the day. Another unique amenity is the pre-arrival concierge that will assist with all those little details such as high-floor accommodations and business services.
The Resort Club Lounge and Concierge Lounge are open from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. seven days a week.
“We designed the Resort Club Lounge and Concierge Lounge to be comfortable and inviting experiences that redefine luxury hospitality based on what each individual guest is seeking,” said Paul Berry, Aria’s vice president of hotel operations. “We are always looking to create memorable moments throughout the resort while building meaningful relationships with each guest.”
Comparing Aria Rooms
A daily social hour and lounge is a great perk when booking hotel rooms anywhere. Some hotel chains like Kimpton offer this to all guests. Other hotels chains charge a bit more for access to this amenity. Las Vegas resorts usually only offer lounges to high rollers. You may be familiar with Caesars Diamond Lounges or the new Prestige service for guests at The Palazzo.
A quick comparison shows the base King room at Aria and Resort Club Lounge room offer the same in-room experience. The difference per night is essentially the price that gives access to the new lounge and amenities. This random mid-week price difference between the two rooms shows that the Resort Club Lounge room is $73 more. The rate varies by day and the difference is sometimes as low as $45-$50.
When you divide the difference between two people you’re looking at an extra $25-$40 per person per day. The average difference it close to what a snack and two drinks would cost on the casino floor. Sometimes sitting in a lounge away from the action on the Vegas Strip for a little while is priceless.
Everyone has different preferences on how they’d like to spend their time in Las Vegas. Trips to Sin City aren’t always the same and the amenities might be worth the extra money. This could also provide a good opportunity to try the $20 trick at Aria. Spending $20 for lounge access is certainly better than the price difference in hotel rooms.
