vdara, aria or mgm grand

first time in vegas, 3 ladies in our 20s staying for 2 nights..was going to book Vdara but found MGM grand for $160 less and is the no casino at Vdara an issue? Also is Aria worth the extra cash

Aria is nicer, IMO, and a bit more central, but MGM is nice. Vdara is fine but I'd choose one of the other 2.

$160 divided by 3? I'd take aria

For me the Vdara no casino is a deal breaker and I'd opt for Aria over MGM which is just too big for my taste although it depends how much is involved in what you call "extra cash".

Depends if you want a break from the gambling and smoking, if so Vdara is your gem...it's only a 2-3min walk from the Vdara to Aria casino and about 5-7min wall to the Bellagio casino via the walkway.

1. I presume the price difference is between MGM Grand and Vdara... what is the difference between Aria and MGM Grand?

2. Have you considered other alternatives, such as Cosmopolitan, Planet Hollywood, NYNY, Paris or Monte Carlo?

3. When are you visiting? If it's during the summer pool season, a hotel with a good pool area is the best option- both MGM and Aria have nice pool areas...

Enjoy:)

Depends on your budget. I would only recommend Vdara if you can afford at least a Vdara suite - the deluxe/normal rooms are fine but nothinh special. The suites are lovely.

I would rule out Vdara as you might still be able to use the pool and the MGM and Aria pools are much nicer. Vdara is nice but for a first visit, it's nothing special.

Cosmo will most likely be waayyyy above the others and I would pick MGM or Aria over MC, PH, Paris, or NYNY.
