Aria Resort Club Lounge Now Open
Very exciting news for all of us gambling fiends (I mean enthusiasts.) Aria has opened up its Resort Club Lounge. This post details the perks of Resort Club and other ways to get the royal treatment and save big at the same time. The lounge is free for resort club guests. I haven’t called them yet to confirm but I believe it’s similar to other lounge access models where you get a basic room and just pay for club access.
I’m curious if they will accept Hyatt Club upgrades, doubtful but that would certainly make it an interesting prospect for Hyatt elites. For everything you need to know about the Hyatt and M Life Partnership:see our complete guide to maximizing their benefits.
Even just having the Chase World of Hyatt Credit Card helps in Vegas.
Perks of Aria’s Resort Club Even Without M Life Status
- Priority Check-In
- High Floor
The lounge is open daily from 7 to 9 PM, serving breakfast and snacks throughout the day. Happy hour with free booze from 5 to 7pm. It sounds like there’s a nice assortment of drinks and food as opposed to the sky suites lounge where wine and beer seems to be your only option. Resort club guests also have access to a concierge to assist them with various things throughout their stay. Check out the official page for more details.
Hopefully the Resort Club option doesn’t increase costs for the suites because once you go Sky Suites Penthouse, you don’t go back. I really loved my stay at the Aria Sky Suites Penthouse and while we are talking mLife,The Bellagio wasn’t bad either.
Lounges with free food are an awesome way for people to save money while traveling. Aside from players lounges, I’m unaware of any other Vegas casinos that offer a club level with these types of amenities. However, the Fine Hotels and Resorts program is basically all of these benefits and then some but doesn’t give you lounge access. If you’re unfamiliar with the program you should definitely read the following posts to see how I save thousands of dollars every year in Vegas alone.

I haven’t yet looked into the cost but I definitely have a few questions about the logistics of being a resort club guest. First, I’m curious how access would work for comped rooms if available at all (most likely a paid upgrade). While breakfast and snacks throughout the day is valuable in Vegas I wouldn’t place much value on drinks since they are free if you’re gambling. Last, it would be interesting to see if they allow sky suites and tower suites guests to access the lounge free of charge.
