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
I stayed at Aria for a convention being held there. The hotel is very beautiful and well designed. The rooms are very modern and well maintained. It is huge with many restaurants and stores. I did not get a chance to do any spa services or to sit by the pool. The weather was not really warm enough for a pool stay. The location of the hotel is good. You can quickly get to other locations on the strip. The monorail is also available as a way to get to other hotels or areas on the Strip. My only concern was that it is hard to get a drink while you are at the slot machines in the casino area. The drink service does not compare well to their competitors. The convention center was huge and easy to navigate. The food quality during the convention was excellent.
Great location, great service and the rooms are magnificent. The cost is painful though, but that's Las Vegas. The location is great, in the middle of the strip, but still expect to do a fair amount of walking.
I would call this a five star resort. VERY nice and high class. We have stayed at a different resort/casino every time we've gone to Las Vegas, but I think I know where we will be staying in Vegas from now on!
The overall experience was 5 star. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, the quality was very nice. The convention center was very nice and accommodated the 3k plus attendees well. I would Highly recommend this hotel.
Aria was an excellent resort & casino. The food was great, the rooms were comfortable and the overall experience was amazing. The location was close to many outside restaurants, hotels, and even local stores.
