We look at the same old stars, battled the same old wars like so many times before, goodbye to the best view ever Music, but i’ll be it’s about uh, 11 o’clock. None of the rooms at this hotel is open yet so i’m going to grab a tea and wait. This has been my go to place for tea in las vegas, one of the few places that has a place to sit in the city outside and in the shade yeah, so got to be careful which side of the straw you just stab into your drink. Tea is really good: Music, okay, it’s three o’clock is check in time. I basically just spent the last four hours sitting in my car um playing on my phone. I found this indoor parking garage and that’s, basically what i did for four hours. So. Finally, i think there should be a room ready and this hotel i’m staying at is the aria sky suites it’s supposed to be one of the best hotel rooms in las vegas, so i’m excited to check it out now i don’t know much about the suite, but From the website, apparently, if you’re coming from the airport, they’re gon na send a limo out to get you but i’m driving in uh in this wonderful ford, fusion, with i’m, pretty sure there’s scallions on my hood. Still from when i was eating. There should be a fitting vehicle to arrive in i’ll, be Music, just hold okay, closer i’ll be okay; okay, so there is a lane for for sky suites.
Only here we go. This is the limos that’s uh, taking people off from the airport Music. So if you want to take advantage of the full experience, don’t drive here, okay, i think this is the check in lounge but there’s like so many people sitting here, i’m. Pretty sure everyone is still waiting for a room, so let’s check in and see what happens. Yeah there’s a huge line of people checking in right now, so it’s gon na take a while it’s about 3 20.. Try to check in the room is not ready, but i do have this lounge here. As you can see, there’s uh. You know waters and sodas and juice. You can get coffee and tea and there’s many bites of food here, let’s see what they got: wild, mushroom and truffle salad and then roasted red and yellow paprika. This looks good. Just gon na find a little corner to eat. My mushroom salad it’s, like a one biter right, i’ll, show you if you care don’t, fill up on that i say: that’s, uh owh food. Only when hungry food behind me is basically the entire lounge. It seems like there’s um, like maybe a couple dozen people still waiting for their rooms, so i’m going to go, find a corner and continue my game. It is now 4 34.. I still haven’t got a message that my roommate’s ready been looking at reviews of this place, and that seemed to be a common problem that, even though checking is at three says some people don’t even get their rooms until 7, 30 pm 8 pm, which is pretty Crazy, considering how expensive your stay is, so i think the cheapest room in the sky suites is about 550.
The one i booked, i think, is about 800, which will be the most expensive hotel room i’ve ever booked in my life. But if you think about it, if you’re spending eight hundred dollars on a hotel room that’s, if you check in at three and you check out check out that eleven sharp like no wiggle room where else you’re paying extra 300 or something that’s, i wish i could Tap into my asian superpowers and be better at math nine hours, so that’s 20 hours in the room, if you get to check in right away so that’s around 45 dollars an hour. So i basically just lost like 60 right now. 60 is a steak like a good steak anyway, i’ll check back, also, not just me, so this is the lounge area, which is honestly more like a lobby area. People have only increased in that decrease, so meaning, like no rooms, are not really any rooms already, which is kind of surprising if people are checking out at 11 and it’s, like we’re, almost 5 o’clock that’s six hours to clean our room, it’s 5, 30. Now so i’ve been waiting around for about two and a half hours. They said they were gon na call me. I didn’t get a call, so let me just ask them if there’s a room ready where they just forgot about me or something ah yeah. I didn’t get a call, but i was wondering if everyone else is kind of gone.
You have your photo identification, still nothing yet. Okay, nope no room! Yet this raid, i think i’ll be in by dinner time. So the last video i filmed before this was to stay at the venetian where i lost my toiletry bag. Good news: is they found it? You know after i, pretty much rebought everything so after whenever check in happens, go and grab the bag. All right just got the text and my room is ready. Let’S go. Take a look, Music be Music wow. I walked in the room, i didn’t push anything and the uh couldn’t start open, that’s, pretty oh wow. The view is amazing. Although i got ta stare at david copperfield’s face all day, this room is a hundred percent, the biggest hotel room i’ve ever stayed in in my life, with, of course, the best view i’ve ever seen in my life high five to that wow. This is incredible. You get both the strip new york new york right over there, luxor middle and bay. Did you guys know? I said this in the last video that las vegas is actually surrounded entirely by mountain ranges. So, no matter what hotel room you get it’s always going to be a mountain view. So when they say mountain view, in the description it’s tall enough to where you can see past other buildings, i think because there’s mountain view everywhere, it’s not like you – have to face a specific direction. To get the mountain view.
Oh ding, tai phong, is here at the area by the way. Right now is about 5 45, so check in again three o’clock, my estimate 45 to 50 dollars an hour. Actually, i just realized i booked a corner, they call it a penthouse but it’s not really the penthouse, because it’s not the top one but that’s what they call it. So, if you’re expecting a penthouse when you’re booking a penthouse it’s, not technically a penthouse, just so you’re, not surprised once you get here this room after tax and fees and everything, i think is around nine hundred dollars so closer to fifty dollars an hour and we’re. Just going to round down a bit to 5 30 two and a half hours late, that’s, like 125 loss in in time, spent in room and it’s. Definitely the latest check in i’ve ever experienced in any hotel. Ever in my life, i just never. This is really crazy how late it got and i didn’t even get a call. I was uh. I just saw other people started, leaving and i’m like wait, a minute. Where is everyone else going and i went and asked asked them and that they were like? Oh okay, oops, okay, here’s the thing about vegas. If you ever see this many water sitting there just out in the open that 100 costs money, especially when it’s fiji. So even though there’s no price labeled, i would not touch these waters premium.
Coffee kids let’s see here, you got a fridge here. Okay, this is the mini bar thing is never touch anything here, because if the sensor moves, even though you didn’t take anything, they might charge you with something got a plant in my room. It’S never happened before. Okay, so here you get to watch movies, i guess this tablet. If i remember aria, tablets control everything so in terms of what you get for staying in the suite. Supposedly, you have a concierge, i don’t think there’s an in room butler or anything. The only thing they told me that if you’re staying here you do have access to is a special pool, but as of now, i think it’s going to close in an hour. So i don’t even know we’re going to make it there, because i really just want to get some food property amenities, pools. Yeah pools close at seven it’s already about six o’clock. So really no point in doing that. So you can check out here which i will recommend at all vegas hotels. You check in um digitally, if you can, the wait time to check out always seems so daunting to me. Uh mini bar. Here we go snacks, twenty four dollars for a bag of cashews pringles 13.75 beverages 13.75 for a glass of coke, the sunny 1475 – oh, my goodness, yep yep. I knew it it’s! Never free! If you see water sitting on a vegas hotel room, never free 13.
75. Wait! Wait: wait nope see this fiji water deluxe, that was the big size water, while we’re here the in room dining, but after seeing how much that water cost i’m like i’m super nervous, breakfast yogurt and fruits, and nuts is 14.. Oatmeal is 12.. Oh, my goodness, a bowl of cereal is 12.. I haven’t bought cereal in a long time but i’m. Pretty sure that i can buy you about three boxes. So let’s see what there is to eat, that’s, actually good, belgian waffles, okay, breakfast specials steak and eggs. Continental breakfast, nothing that looks too special ish lunch. It doesn’t, they don’t tell you if there’s a time when lunch is ready or not. So this looks like a typical salad, cobb, salad, caesar salad. So it looks like the in room dining at the aria. Doesn’T. Really just a normal quesadilla, it doesn’t really have anything special. This is very much classic hotel food crispy chicken sandwich. Oh this burger 26. If you can, if you haven’t done it already, watch my venetian in room, dining video, much better burger like that burger could whoop this burgers, but in any city in the world and it costs less size instead of in room dyna. You could do take out so there’s ding, tai phone and the phone is always good. I wanted to do like a like a series of videos on pretty nice fancy, schmancy vegas hotel rooms and on the in room dining menus in a lot of places like the venetian.
I just stayed at the in room. Dining menus are amazing. Again you can go. Do take out and whatever but room service food really doesn’t. Look like anything special. I thought at the area, especially at the skyloft there’d, be like a like a skyloft food menu or something really isn’t. Basically, besides the amazing view – and it is amazing in the room being super nice, at least for me – there’s really not much to enjoy here – that’s a mention. So if you come to this little lounge area from fort nine, you get white or red wine. I’M gon na go pick up. My lost toiletry bag from vadera and then i’m gon na go pick up my dinner from ding tai fung, all right, so i went for my travel bag. They tell me my travel bag is now in aria. So basically, my travel bag traveled to the other hotel, so today’s in room dining, is gon na feature. Vegas thing typhoon got some noodles got some hot and sour soup got some dumplings. I used to not like ding tai fung that much, but especially having it in taiwan. I think it’s, actually one of the best most well done, ching restaurants in the world, because everywhere you go in the world as long as there’s a ding thai foam. The quality is pretty good and it’s, pretty consistent, so big bowl, hot and sour soup. I think these are my dumplings yep, the most expensive dumplings in the world.
I think six cost ten dollars, it’s almost two dollars a dumpling and that might not just be vegas price that just might be the price for these dumplings anywhere that’s. Another reason i didn’t really like it that much coming from new york or soup dumplings on average cost about six dollars per order of of six to eight. Oh, so these are the hot oil wontons i Music got. This is really good it’s, not your typical restaurant. Like a chinese restaurant, hot and sour soup tommy, what is this? Is this oh wait? This is the seasoning hot and sour soup actually got a lot of good flavors. This looks like uh stuff that comes out of a ramen pack like a ramen seasoning pack. Let me mix the sauce above a little more. What in the world was that that’s, so interesting, don’t tell me they make these things like per order, not in a giant pot. Stove tastes really good. A little tofu salad, pretty good. What year little too sweet actually way too sweet would not recommend this, but it feels like they used some sweet vinegar. This i was looking forward to spicy wontons delicious rappers got a good shoe. Filling is good. This garlicky chili sauce on top is heavenly. I may think they’re overpriced dumplings, but the consistency is always there Music. This is the spicy noodle and i don’t know if this is true, because i don’t eat anything that i found very often, but i feel like the vegas version of din’s.
Iphone has more stuff again, i could be wrong, but i kind of feel that way: oh it’s, really good little texture is good, flavors, fantastic, every dish it doesn’t taste like it came out of a chain: restaurant yeah that got really cold there’s, no spicy dipping sauce. So i’m, just gon na dunk it into my wonton sauce, oh that’s, good, i don’t think i’ve had dumplings in a long long time. There is a couple of soup dumpling places in vegas i’ll check out but cannot deny. This is a delicious dumpling. So basically, this place not really much options at in room dining. The check in process was a disaster, but the view wow the view – and i am definitely paying for this view, my first meal since breakfast, i definitely felt a little hanger, but you know what i’m really glad i got this. This tastes like home. This is comfort. Food for me, the pickle veggies, the tofu, the crunch from the cilantro, the noodle texture, is amazing, tofu, salad, light with a little sesame oil and the dumplings tiny, but substantial and be able to eat all this. While looking out at that, this is my biggest dream. Come true, never in a million years would, i think, like i’ll, be staring at the mgm new york new york from this crazy hotel room munching on some delicious chinese food work hard. A little luck. Dreams do come true. Music best thing about such a big hotel room, it’s better for running, so these are the pools that aria has that one over there, this one, the the one on the far right, that’s the one reserved for sky suite members.
This is so creepy. I was just sitting here, um working on my phone and the curtains started closed by working on my phone. I mean i was watching like these creepy ghost videos and these cartridges started to close on their own. I didn’t do anything you can check out right from the tv, but what is this looks like a bottle of water 1575.. I never took a bottle of water, maybe the ghost in this room did it Music, so i disputed the charge that was on my room. The 1575 charge turned out to be one stickers bar one once is that, like, like the snicker bar that has like a golden ticket inside where i can visit willy wonka’s factory or something if the snicker bar doesn’t give you so much powers that the winchesters are. After you, there’s no reason, i think, should be about 16 bucks so now i’m in hotel limbo once again um. I can’t check into my next place until three o’clock, so let’s go to chinatown Music soup dumpling part two. This is the menu here, typical shanghai food items, soup down plain crab meat soup down playing tongs; the literal translation that is scallions, smelling good beef, little buns Music. So i got two basket soup dumplings. I got some wontons. I got some sour and sweet ribs, which is a shanghai specialty. I think that’s all i actually really like it. Sometimes, when i forget what i ordered, because then you get it you’re like oh, i thought i didn’t have any food anymore, but happy chinese new year to me, it’s, pretty good, nice and plump skin is thin.
The hot oil base is delicious and spicy Music. 100 use some vinegar wow. You can definitely taste the amount of meat they put in here. This is a plump wonton, hmm, very good. I like it when restaurants are not stingy with their filling, and this thing nothing is huge, so these are regular ones. These are the crab and pork. This is angus beef and this is cucumber and little dry shrimp. Let me start with the regular, then this is a ridicule method by a lot of people. I like opening the dumpling up a little bit and pouring the soup onto a spoon and then adding some hot oil and vinegar to it and drinking the soup that’s very nice. Now we don’t have to do it that way. Most people take a nibble drink. The soup straight from there and then eating the dumpling, which is fine too. I just really like seeing how much soup is actually in that soup dumpling. This is the crab meat soup, dumpling Music they’re telling me this is fresh crab from vancouver and it’s flown here. Live and then they cook it into a soup dumpling my favorite way to use soup dumplings is actually when it gets cool enough. I just like to dunk a little hot oil, vinegar and then just pop the whole thing in my mouth so cucumber and shrimp. Those are really juicy and refreshing dumpling nice bits of cucumbers, sweetness from the shrimp.
I think i like that more than the regular soup dumpling there’s, the black english wow. This is good. This thing is so juicy with the added juice from the fat also from the meat filling itself. Don’T just get the pork at this. Oh yeah, you definitely taste the freshness of that crab. I don’t know what this is doing here. Is there like a giant carrot somewhere missing their kid it’s wandered off into a soup dumpling bin, probably not the best place to go? Maybe all vegetable parents should tell their kids not to do that. My only complaint, some of the dough on the dumplings it’s a little too thick other than that the flavor is fantastic that’s. One thing i do really love about ding tai foam is how thin the skin is, which to me is such an important characteristic of a good soup dumpling. Overall, this is a great place. So, if you’re craving for soup dumplings a really good alternative, definitely get the crab ones. Oh that’s good.
