Aria?

Hi all and happy new year.

Have decided for my February surprise trip with mom (after visiting Grand Canyon), we will be cheating on the Mirage and staying at Aria for three days. The comp received was not as nice and the rates are quite high during this time but really wanted to branch out and try something new within Mlife properties.

My questions are... is the Aria casino floor and hotel itself easy to navigate? I have been in the hotel only once and that was about two years ago. What are your favorite restaurants within the property? (price point not an issue) and do you have to trapes through the casino to get to the guest elevators?

Any other tips and tricks re: Aria would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all in advance!

Loved it!!

My fav.

American fish is a must do, try the happy hour with 5 dollar selections.

I like lemon grass, and Jullian Serrrano is highly rated but I tried the Pallea and was unimpressed.

Pastry shop is great just at the elevators, and yes through the casino to the guest elevators.

Aria is very easy to navigate, the banks of elevators are all in a row, the aisles are fairly wide, while on our stay we had only dined couple of times at Cafe Vettro, we enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was great as well.

PS you don't have to trapeze through the casino to get to the elevators.

I second American Fish happy hour. Getting to the elevators isn't a problem but learning the ropes like the interior walkway to Monte Carlo is helpful.

Aria and its casino floor is very easy to navigate. Aria also happens to be one of the few casino resorts on the strip where getting to your room doesn't require you to walk through any tables. In terms of restaurants, I think Julian Serrano is the best restaurant there. For more of a fine dining experience, Sage would be the choice. I liked Sirio and I think it's good but I wouldn't say it's so great that you must try it. If you're looking for Italian and you don't want to go too far, I would give Sirio a try. I like Lemongrass but if you know what good Tai food and Chinese food tastes like, you'll think that Lemongrass is a poor deal. I didn't like American Fish all that much but I only try their salt baked prime rib and I thought it was too salty. Based on the reviews I've read it seems like they tend towards the salty side even for their fish. Their happy hour is great if you're looking for some light snacks to munch on.

We like Julian Serrano and American Fish but are underwhelmed by Lemongrass.

Interesting - thank you. I thought Lemongrass looked really good - as did Sirio but now will try American Fish and Julian Serrano for sure.
