ARIA Poker Room Review
The Aria Resort and Casino is the centerpiece of MGM Resorts International CityCenter development and includes The Aria Poker Room located just off the main entrance to the valet and self parking plaza. The Aria Poker Room is 24 tables, all equipped with both automatic shufflers as well as the Genesis Bravo tableside management system. Restrooms, snack bar, sports book, and self parking are all located within a few yards of the poker room. The Aria Poker Room has a dedicated poker room cashier cage, an elevated top section for high limit games as well as "Ivey's Room" for very high stakes. It is common to see many televised professional players playing 300/600 Mix or higher in Ivey's Room.
The most common games spread at The Aria Poker Room include 1/3NLHE, 2/5NLHE, 5/10NLHE, 12/24 Mix, 1/3 & 2/5 Pot Limit Omaha, and 4/8LHE. The room also spreads very high limit poker, starting at 300/600 Mix most nights.
Aesthetically, the color palette of the Aria Poker Room is a mixture of dark browns, taupes, and deep reds. The Aria Poker Room chairs, with their multicolored backs, are swivel adjustable and on caster wheels. The room is surrounded by high definition flat screen televisions as well as a large metal playing card sculpture, which frames the entire venue.
The Aria Poker Room utilizes the Genesis Gaming Bravo system for tracking the waiting lists, open seats, chip requests, and players earned comps. All players swipe at the table by presenting their MGM Resorts M Life card to the dealer upon arrival. All time is accounted for, and all open seats are automatically tracked at the brush podium. The audio system in the room allows for patrons outside of the room to hear their name being called, and soft music plays on all overhead speakers.
Regarding room organization, the venue is divided into three distinct areas. The main poker room floor encompasses 18 tables, which line the rail and allows for walk-by traffic for game observance. The elevated top section includes 5 tables and is usually reserved for high limit poker, starting at 5/10NLHE as well as the 12/24 Mix. In the center of the room is Ivey's Room (named after Phil Ivey), which is reserved for very high stakes poker.
The Aria Poker Room offers a $2 per hour comp rate on their MGM Resorts M Life card from 10AM to 5AM and $3 an hour comps rate from 5AM to 10AM every day. These earned comps can be used for tableside foodservice (offered 24 hours a day), or can be printed and used for many restaurants within the property.
The Aria Poker Room cocktail service offers complimentary Fiji water, frozen drinks, energy drinks, and most varieties of top shelf liquor and mixed drinks. Tableside food delivery is also available 24 hours a day for all guests and can be paid with comps using the MGM Resorts M Life card.

The room was clean and comfortable. The chairs are great and I like the 9 handed tables....
Busy and loving it!
A very comfortable room. However, since my last visit to the Aria, it has become VERY busy and popular. As such, it can be very busy, crowded and discarded drink cups can line the rail....
Very well run tournament.
My only diislike was the tournament area was in the casino area. Was noisy at times....
Space at the table is good as it's played 9-handed. I like the interiour and the seats are comfortable enough. There's enough choice in the 1/3NL and 2/5NL game and even the 10/20NL was running very often when I played there. What I don't like: The max 100BB buy in at the 1/3NL game. I think it should be at least 150BB to create more room to play without needing to rebuy to the max if a pla...
Hittin' & Runnin' at the Aria
Very nice room, but the tables are too close together. They should get rid of 20% of their tables....
Close to Perfect
I almost fave the room quality excellent, but the tables are packed in a little too tight. Other than that (and the lack of cup holders on the table) the room is great. The decor, cleanliness, position in the casino are all great. ...
Best Action on the Strip
Room was always busy, great decor and condition, but not too loud....
Best in Vegas
I wish the room were bigger (I think everyone would agree). The tables are a little tight as the room is very often full. There is often a wait for a 1-3 table. The chairs, while once were the best in Vegas, are starting to show their age. Still, I find myself playing here (almost) exclusively, so I must rate it a "5". There are a lot of regulars here, which I personally like. I come to Vegas for ...
long list for 1-3 NL, moved quickly to open a new table as the 7 pm tournament wound down. nice table/chairs. my table had two visible locals, and the rest seemingly like myself
