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
First stay at Aria and it was fun. Action all the time, great restaurants, shopping, location. Aria does not have any shows that I was aware of, but getting to the MGM Grand or another sister hotel on the strip that does have shows were easy to get to. Great location for both day and evening excursions should you want to leave the Aria.
The best resort in Las Vegas hands down. It was truly a five star experience. I will only stay at the Aria when I visit Las Vegas. You really don’t need to go any where when in town. Lemongrass has the best Singapore noodles hands down. We also had a bite at the burger lounge.
Honestly I expected better, the queue to check in was horrendous when added to a 3 hour flight it didn't start our 5 night stay off particularly well. Then having to battle through the casino with our bags to the lift.
Our room was spacious and clean, however I was petrified of being charged for moving a bottle of water in the room!
When we return to Vegas I definitely wouldn't return to the Aria and would probably book Bellagio's or The Venetian.
