ARIA

ARIA

Forget about the rocky opening and the snarky comments about "pocket parks" and "remembering to breathe." Aria is hitting it's stride, with great room product in all categories including the uber-luxe Sky Suites, a lively casino, and plenty of dining choices. This is currently my go-to spot, and I could not be happier.

Bellagio

Bellagio

Still a wonder to behold, even if she is beginning to show some signs of aging. Service can be a bit spotty at times, and I have never had much luck in the casino, but it is hard to beat Bellagio for it's combination of luxury, location, and amenities.

So much to love, and so much that could be better. The Cosmo is rightly known for its great assortment of restaurants and bars. The rooms are also quite nice, particularly if you get a 1-bedroom suite or higher category room facing Bellagio's fountains. And unlike some, I've had good experiences in the casino and with the Identity program. But uneven housekeeping service, worn furnishings, and an at-times incompetent front desk will have my thinking twice about future visits, even if it does count towards my Marriott rewards account.

Liked your Cosmo/Marathon review. I'm running in my first 1/2 marathon in May (OC Marathon) and I already have my sights set for Vegas in December.
