ARIA Resort & Casino Las Vegas excels at exclusivity in the midst of the Strip’s hottest action. Slick architecture firm Pelli Clarke Pelli is behind the sleek, curvilinear look of the theme-free glass, 4,004-room tower, which also happens to be the world’s largest LEED Gold–certified building. Light floods the leafy lobby, the entrée to ARIA’s resplendence—think 16 restaurants; eight bars, clubs, and lounges; three pools; and a 150,000-square-foot casino. Guest rooms are done up in muted tones, with pops of dark purple or sage, which lets the views take center stage. From your bed, gaze out at the lights and relax: it’s possible to control everything from the curtains to the television to the Do Not Disturb sign from one bedside panel. Start your ARIA experience at the spa, where you can clear your mind in the Shio salt room or sweat out the toxins on the heated Ganbanyoku beds before a Thai poultice massage. Your dinner reservation may be the hardest choice you make here. Head to the promenade level for memorable Wagyu beef at Jean Georges Steakhouse, sup on tapas and sangria at stylish Julian Serrano, or enjoy a farm-to-table feast at Chef Shawn McClain’s Sage. After trying your luck at the tables, hit up the intimate GOLD Boutique Club, a 1950s inspired drinking den, or sample the creative cocktails on offer at ALIBI. ARIA is the exclusive home of Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil, a stunning acrobatic spectacular set in a fantastical world of whimsy and romance.
In the Area
For a little retro fun, take the short taxi ride to the nonprofit Pinball Hall of Fame, the world’s largest collection of machines, or head to the Neon Boneyard, the final resting place of the city’s glittering signs. A few blocks off the Strip, not attached to any casino, you can find Oktoberfest every day at the only location outside Munich of Hofbrauhaus, the world’s most famous beer hall. Need to escape the Vegas scene? Check out the Hoover Dam. Built more than 70 years ago, it’s still a wonder at 726 feet high, 1,244 feet long and 660 feet thick.
How to Get There
Staffs at their check-in and guest service desk were not at all friendly nor helpful. Guest room was clean but some amenities were missing when we arrived the first day. And the light wasn’t working in our bathroom. Which it should be checked before releasing the room to customers. Rideshare at this hotel is not well planned. Be aware. Only one lane for cars to come through, rideshares have to take off the minute they arrive. The security would rush you off if you weren’t ready. Overall, not a hotel that is designed for guests to enjoy their stay.
Traveled in a party of 10. Stood in line for about 20 minutes when we were instruction to go to the kiosk and check in there. What we didn’t know was when you use the kiosk you are unable to make any requests .( I was traveling with my elderly parents and wanted them on the same floor. The staff was unapologetic to my issue and the line had doubled since I got out and went to the kiosk . When the staff was not interested in my concerns I asked to speak to the manager and I pretty much got the same response . The property is beautiful, but the food/ bars/ cafes are VERY expensive. The room fridge is fully stocked and is charged automatically to your room if you take it out of their spot for more than 60 seconds. A can of soda is $12.75 ( yes, that is NOT a typo ) and a large bottle of Fiji water is $21.75!
You are required to show you room card to get the elevators ( nice to have security) but they should consider whom they put on the job. For the 4!days we were there , 1 of the guards was friendly.
Great location, centered in the strip. Close to other casino resorts and restaurants. The only thing I wish they did was give an incentive for being a guest such as; allowing to reserve a table at any of their restaurants not just some or an updated players card.
Rude Staff, extremely rude. Not good for families. We were 3 families traveling with kids and to go to your room, you have to go through casino. While nearing the checkpoint to the elevator, I was looking at my key and other telephone text that I received. A guy came in and spoke so rudely to stand in the side as "its illegal for kids to be in between pathway, its casino etc". Mind you that kids were just standing in the middle, not even close to any slot machine. I told him yes I udnerstand and juts give me few seconds, he was furious and was standing on my head till I move.
Another incident was when we were checking-in, kids obviously were running around and playing. Immediately one person came in and requested us to control our kids, that cant run but have to be sit quietly ...utter STUPIDITY to say the least. I suggest, if you have families or kids, find other good place to stay ...this place sucks for families.
I had heard a lot of good things about the Aria and decided to book the hotel as a surprise trip for my husbands 40th birthday and it did not disappoint. The hotel is fabulous, the restaurants are great, the service is great, location is great, we cannot wait to return. I told the hotel it was my husbands birthday and they upgraded us to a strip view room and left a lovely card and chocolates in the room for him, very thoughtful. The room was fabulous whole resort is very clean and beautiful decor. Would not hesitate to recommend this resort, can’t fault it in any way.
